Nothing like waiting until the last minute, right?

Miami Dolphins
Week 1: @ Seahawks - LOSS
Week 2: @ Patriots - LOSS
Week 3: vs. Browns - WIN
Week 4: at Bengals - LOSS
Week 5: vs. Titans - WIN
Week 6: vs. Steelers - LOSS
Week 7: vs. Bills - WIN
Week 8: BYE
Week 9: vs. Jets - LOSS
Week 10: at Chargers - WIN
Week 11: at Rams - WIN
Week 12: vs. 49ers - WIN
Week 13: at Ravens - LOSS
Week 14: vs. Cardinals - LOSS
Week 15: at Jets - LOSS
Week 16: at Bills - LOSS
Week 17: vs. Patriots - LOSS
2016 Record: 6-10

Also, are we doing the weekly pick 'em this year too? Mark me as a loss for the first game; I would have picked Camolina. Otherwise:
- Buccaneers over Falcons
- Titans over Vikings
- Eagles over Browns
- Bengals over Jets
- Saints over Raiders
- Chiefs over Chargers
- Ravens over Bills
- Texans over Bears
- Packers over Jaguars
- Seahawks over Dolphins
- Giants over Cowboys
- Colts over Lions
- Cardinals over Patriots
- Steelers over Washington
- Rams over 49ers

Welp, it's week two and the season is over already. At least they got it out of the way early this year. And I'm not even mad. In fact, I think I want them to make it to 20 years. At least we can try and break a record that way.

Ok, now that I've actually updated the spreadsheet...

Code: Select all

1. Gumchum ---- 8/13 - 61.54%
2. Pan Fan ---- 6/11 - 54.55%

If y'all watch any game in this regular season, tonight wouldn't be a bad choice.

Hey [USER=15474]@Gumchum[/USER] , question about Mizzuruh. With the Rams defecting to LA, have football fans stuck with them, or have they converted to KC or otherwise?

^My mom has abandoned the NFL completely over this. She still watches Mizzou, though. There's a fair mix of responses; not many have really stuck with them, though.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

As someone who roots for a team that was almost taken away, I can attest to the fact that I (and many people I know) would have just abandoned the NFL had that happened.

Granted I'm getting close to doing that anyways, but that's just 17 years and counting talking...

I'm about an hour away from being considered northern Illinois, man. My hometown is slightly closer to St. Louis, but now I'm much closer to Chicago. It's Bears fans with a few Packers fans here and there, and one weirdo Dolphins fan.

Gotcha. For the record, when I said "in town" I meant "in St. Louis," not really your proximity to it.

Though to be fair, I had you mentally placed a lot closer to St. Louis than that.

TBH, the Rams were always kind of an afterthought in central Illinois; can't speak for anything south of I-70. North of I-80, though, nobody gave a flying flip about the Rams.
