Below is a link to the official "Dinner's On Me, Smartass" Competition. We closed the thread to keep people from changing their picks, so I create this thread for discussions of where people stand when the season begins.

 

This year's competition has 69 competitors.

 

For opening week, 66 picked the Bills to Win and 3 picked the Bills to Lose.

 

We'll update each week as long as someone is in the running.

 

LINK IS HERE.

 

Best of luck to most of you.

I have them at four wins heading into December. Let's hope I'm wrong.

I think at this point I'd take the under. Good foresight on your part!

Jeez, I predicted 6 wins.  Now I can't get $150 donated in my name to assuage my guilt for being stingy with hobos.

Boy is this a crap shoot this year or what.  Watkins gone, rumors of Shady on the blocks and therefore full tank.  I wonder how many would change theirs fairly significantly if they could :)

Which, despite altered perspectives of the thin-of-skin, has always been the purpose of this contest. When I first found TBD, I was surprised at how many people were convinced they knew the outcome of the season simply because the schedule was released. So the contest was sort of a way to make the point that the only time anyone knows how a season is going to end is to be there when it ends.

 

Some say picking wins/losses off a schedule release is just for funsies. Well, I guess, so is the contest.

I missed it. I would have put down 7 wins. Now I would probably go with 5. It will not shock me if the jets come into Buffalo and win, besides we lost twice to them last year, and yes I remember Tyrod did not play the last game

Well, Week 1 is in the books, and 65 of you are moving into Week 2.

 

The contest will get a real trim after this week, as 38 picked the Bills to beat the Panthers and 27 picked them to lose to the Panthers.

 

Best of luck to everyone.
