No way in Hell the Cowboys win if Sanchez starts, and I'd give it 25/75 in favor of the Eagles if Romo starts.
*****
So true.  Romo's one series resulted in a TD.  Sanchez' lengthy play resulted in 2 interceptions, 0 TDs, a 27.5 QB rating and the only non-playoff team all year beating Dallas.  He's just terrible.  I wish there was a way to make conditional bets based on the number of snaps your favorite (or most hated) player takes because had I known Sanchez would get half that many reps, I would have taken Philly.

Okay, awards time.  Last year I gave out a staggering 20 I CALLED IT! awards.  We must be getting better/worse at this because this year it was a paltry 11.  Also last year were 10 Charlie Browns to this year's 7.

Final tally:

2 - Brian Floyd [Last year's Champion] Week 9 (Colts over Packers in Green Bay), Week 14 (Texans over Colts in Indianapolis)
2 - Allan Summerall Week 6 (Dolphins over Steelers in Miami),
Week 10 (Dolphins over Chargers in San Diego)
1 - Andy Meyers Week 16 (Jaguars over Titans in Jacksonville - ITYS)
1 - Brad Brickley Week 6 (Redskins over Eagles at home)
1 - Doug Centers Week 3 (Eagles over Steelers in Philly)
1 - Matt Reed Week 3 (Vikings over Panthers in NC)
1 - Philippe Pinoli Week 15 (Titans over Chiefs in KC)
1 - Rich Marzullo Week 4 (Bears over Lions in Chicago)
1 - Rick Senger Week 2 (Rams over Seahawks in L.A.)

1 - BEARS Week 8 (over Vikings in Chicago)
1 - BILLS (over Cardinals in NY)
2 - BUCCANEERS Week 11 (over Chiefs in KC), Week 12 (over Seahawks in Tampa)
1 - CHARGERS Week 7 (over Falcons in Atlanta)
1 - REDSKINS Week 3 (over Giants in NY)

Also, I trounced my frenemy Matt Reed!  My first victory since the 2011 season!  I think I lost the records of first season or two we did this, but from the records I have Matt still leads the series five seasons to four.

Gamewise I have won 260 disagrees and Matt 259.  You can check with Secretary Clinton on the significance of that.

This is it !! Regular season is over, first of all my week 17 and thoughts on it :
  • Ravens at Bengals : if disapointment is not too heavy L Way to much Flacconneries (french joke)

  • Texans at Titans : Houson will rest their core D players and keep their QB safe W much of stuff in this game, another One and Done coming for these offenseless Texans

  • Panthers at Buccaneers : W 6-10 ouch, Cam back in years 1-3

  • Jaguars at Colts : W

  • Patriots at Dolphins : who has the best reserve team ? 14-2 sounds good for Garopolo W Brady had still records to brake. Edelman was huge, LeGarette is a beast, this D is amazing (we should be talking threepeat, Bill :(

  • Bears at Vikings : W with this D back...easier

  • Bills at Jets : to check if the players tank to get Rexit ;) L

  • Cowboys at Eagles : first 14-2 ever ? with so many starters off ? L why start Dak to spoil my fellow JBFers pick ? Then check if Romo still has it then throw what was left of Sanchize career away ? There is a 3-headed monster in the backfield anyway !!!

  • Browns at Steelers : W but much closer than expected, Pats way to the SB is a highway

  • Saints at Falcons : upset special in this shootout where the Falcons plays the bye L but I got my shootout

  • Giants at Redskins : match of the week, yearly division final in Glamour D L feel sorry for Kirk but this D will be a factor in these playoffs...rendez-vous in the SB with my Pats for Brady-Eli III ?

  • Cardinals at Rams W

  • Raiders at Broncos W Carrless...

  • Chiefs at Chargers W they are for real with these weapons now, have to check if they meet NE before the conference

  • Seahawks at 49ers W but close, one and done in the playoffs ?

  • Packers at Lions W always the same...Aaron is magnificent

Week 17 results :

Kevin Hagerman wins it with a Cowboyesque 13-3, his 4th of the year

Rick Senger my rival, Kevin Brown, myself and....a new player for this week 17, Joe Boster (good for us he started so late ;), welcome on board for the playoffs, Joe !!!) finish strong at 12-4 but too late to small to change anything. Rick finishes (like Brad) with a 7 week streak of 10+ !!! Congrats anyway !

Doug Centers, Anthony Lombardi and Matt Reed are 11-5 for him

Brad Brickley, Rich Marzullo, Andy Meyers and Brian Floyd score 10-6

Allan Somerhall score 8-8

Overall and final ranking :

Doug Centers wins it with 170-83. First ranked since week 4, he scored 6 times the week's best score. Congrats for the upset as he finished 10th last year with 146-109, what an improvement, will he pass the drug test ? I hope we will get a few words and recipe success from our new champ ! 

Rick Senger finishes very strong and only two picks behind Doug 168-85, he was officially 7th (but 2nd if not a picking mistake) last year with 151-90 (158-98)  and co-winner two years ago (with me !)

Anthony Lombardi is on the podium with 165-88. Leader the first three weeks, he finishes with 6 10+ weeks so has lost his chances in the mid-season. Great imporvement too as he finished 11th lats year with 143-112.

Kevin Brown, ranks 4th with 163-90, and, to my suprise, was not the holder as I wrote so often (this proves nobody reads me !!!), as he finished tied 5th last year with 152-104. He would have won with this score this year, we're gettin better folks !

Kevin Hagerman, our master of ceremony, finishes 5th at 159-94, his last year's ranking but at 152-104.

Brad Brickley is 6th at 158-95, he was 7th with 151-105

Rich Marzullo follows 7th with 157-96, he was 9th at 149-107

Brian Floyd is 8th at 151-102, he was 4th at 153-103, so remained at his level

Matt Reed is 9th at 150-104, he was 3rd at 155-101

I am 10th at 148-103, I was second last year at 156-100

Allan Somerhall finishes in the All Pro Team as 11th for his first year with us, congrats you got 143-109

and Andy Meyers is our last regular player with 130-111.


This was a great football year.

And now, enjoy the last 11 best games of the season (no, I don't watch the Pro/Holiday Bowl) !!!

Go Pats !

Mark Cheek was the 2015-2016 holder, at 162-94 but did not compete !

Kevin was back-to-back winner in 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 ;)

Special thanks to Kevin and Philippe who collectively did plenty of ponderous statistical scut workery all year tracking Ws and Ls, Charlies, I Called Its, etc.  It's a pain just to keep track of myself so we all owe you our gratitude for maintaining the league scoreboard and keeping an eye on some of the more (and less) important achievements along the way.  Not a bad year, but as the Navy Seals like to say, second place is just first loser, so I will retire to my Mancave now and start studying film to plot my revenge vs. you all on the gridiron in 2017.
