There are just 7 of us and it sounds like you are just trying to bail out laley 

The leader despite missing 2 games I got right. I’m just trying to keep it a fair contest!

Don’t forget MNF

Seattle @ Philly

I say everyone make Steelers/Ravens their 5 point game as game looks up in the air and that would be fair for everyone

If it isn’t played, just knock all the picks above it for people down 1. That way it’s basically making the picks without that game, and if it’s played, inserting it with correct confidence.

Should be 79 for me with the Rams win.

Not exactly sure, but I think the league rules are 7 days if you've been asymptomatic, otherwise 10 days from when symptoms appeared.

PIT had a guy miss 2 games because he came down with symptoms on a Friday.

I mean he missed all week of practice last week. He’s gonna be pushing 13 days out. 

Laley23 replied to "2020 Browns" at 09:44 pm

Why is Myles already ruled out? Out of caution or something?

Laley23 replied to "Confidence Points Pickem...Week 11" at 07:43 pm

My week will hinge on Rams tonight. If they win, I’ll have gotten my top 6 right.

I've never thought much of Derek Carr.....but he's an MVP darkhorse this year

You’d have to go about 10 deep. And hope the top 3 fall off a cliff and die.

Indiana, for the first time in maybe forever, has pros on every level of the team. Fields and OSU weren’t perfect, but — and it’s weird to say out loud — have to give Indiana some credit for that performance. It’s not a fluke they’ve turned everyone over multiple times a game this season.

Lol at whatever the hell Pistons are doing.

Harrell is a net negative for any team other than Lakers, imo. But not having to defend AD, makes him a solid pickup for them.

Myles out for Sunday, positive for Covid. Fuck 

He’s already made game changing plays all year. But this is a game he could’ve legit been the winning ingredient. Fuck this sucks.

💥💥💥 Seahawks for 12

I protest this week citing an awful safety call as my evidence.

Bullshit safety. Hold started at the line of scrimmage. 

And now a waste of challenge and timeout by Klingsbury. 

That safety was an awful call. Not sure what Troy was talking about though, Arizona was taking a timeout there anyway. Might as well use a challenge.

One of the first things for them to get past is the idea that they're "wasting their vote". It's their vote and no one else's opinion means shit.

Most important is to get them on the debate stage/equal time from media, imo. Instead of the moving the goalposts for qualifying for those things.

Yeah it really seems like Karma is biting back big time for that first playoff run where they didn't have to play anyone at full strength.  Isn't that also the year that Zaza stepped under Kawhi? 

No, that was actually 2017, after Cavs beat them in 2016.

I guess I will be the first one to say I don't give a fuck about the Warriors' injury woes.  They gave 0 fucks about Kryie and Love's injuries, while they were rubbing in their first title.  They also gave 0 fucks about all other teams that had major injuries during their matchups against them in the playoffs. 

I’ll add that Klay is low-key the worst of them. Draymond owns his shit. KD is a fragile snake and everyone around the league knows it. Steph is bad, and the media protection of him sucks. But Klay...Klay is a douche and no one ever talks about it because he appears “cool” and the others on the team make him look “not-as-bad” so to speak.

Wish Cabs had swing for the fences with Avdeji or Hayes. Oh well. Okoro will work out, just don’t see a future star.

Thought you were getting out of the TV business?

Attempting. Finished up classes in August and have had a few interviews since. Thought I had a job with Amazon but stalled after 2nd interview.

A few things keeping me in the industry at the moment:

  1. No daycare with me home M-T. Wife works from home and can manage Fridays and the occasional odd trip where I’m gone earlier or home later than standard Thursday night flight Sunday am flight.
  2. Not willing to take a significant payout right now. Maybe in future, when being home will matter more to me, but not right this second. And unfortunately while my skills match 99% for these jobs (maybe even overqualified on a lot), employers don’t see the experience they want, and I can’t even get an interview to explain

  1. Things are shifting in my company due to COVID, and I may be in line for a bee position with 10% the travel of now. I’d be the client service rep for NBC Sports or CBS Sports, which would be a lot more work, but a decent pay increase and WFH plus travel only around 10-15x a year.
