If one of the Mods could make this sticky for at least the next nine days, I'd appreciate it. It doesn't really need to be sticky once the season gets rolling, but I'd like to get as many in as we can.

Man, I kind of feel like this could be a 10 win team, but going through game-by-game 8-8 was the best I could come out with. Actually had to go back and add a few wins that I had initially picked as losses to get them there.

Week 1: Arizona at Detroit L
Week 2: Detroit at NY Giants (MNF) W
Week 3: Atlanta at Detroit (Forum Game) L
Week 4: Detroit at Minnesota L
Week 5: Carolina at Detroit W
Week 6: Detroit at New Orleans W
Week 8: Pittsburgh at Detroit (SNF) L
Week 9: Detroit at Green Bay (MNF) L
Week 10: Cleveland at Detroit W
Week 11: Detroit at Chicago W
Week 12: Minnesota at Detroit (T-Day) W
Week 13: Detroit at Baltimore L
Week 14: Detroit at Tampa Bay W
Week 15: Chicago at Detroit L
Week 16: Detroit at Cincinatti W
Week 17: Green Bay at Detroit L

Tiebreaker questions:
Will the Lions make the playoffs? (Y or N) N
Where will the Lions place in the division? (1-4) 3
Lions Rushing Ranking at the end of regular season: (1-32) 25

Maybe I'm just grumpy today and I'll revisit this week sometime. But then, maybe not...

Picks thus far

Ken, are you talking about a consensus pick for each game? I do have the "win confidence" row at the bottom that shows what percentage picked a win each game.

I don't know what else we can really do, stats-wise. I had thought about checking the average win percentage against previous years of the game. It seems like this year the forum has lower expectations than the last few I can remember.

make a line for the win consensus just to see how the forum as a group would do, cincy might change with the mass of last minute changes coming

Lions Win Consensus
ARIZONA 62% = W

NYG 24 % = L

Just for curiosity
