This week we introduce some new contributors to the Blog and a bit of a prediction contest to see who will win.
Fresh off of his phenomenal rookie start in Fantasy Football (he is 7 – 0 in one league and 6 – 1 in the other) he has agreed to share some of his secrets and in-depth predictions for not only Fantasy Football but Real NFL Football games as well.
Redskin Doug: So, Tacoman, what is your secret to winning in Fantasy Football?
Tacoman: I play whoever is up against the Redskins (passing/receiving) and Buffalo Bills (running)!
Redskin Doug: Hey, that’s not funny.
Redskin Doug: So, who do you think will have a breakout game this week? Big Ben?
Tacoman: I’m going with CJ2K. Oh, and check out my overtime prediction too!
SuperCarlos has magical powers and is way too cool to be kept under wraps for long. He has been known to annihilate opponents on Madden Football 120 – 7.
Redskin Doug: Supercarlos, what’s your secret?
Supercarlos: The redo button.
Redskin Doug: So, you cheat?
Supercarlos: I can score a TD every time, do a flip into the end zone, and do my awesome victory dance.
Redskin Doug: How old are you?
Supercarlos: Six, wanna see my flip! Oh yeah! It’s awesome!
And as a special guest who, due to his highly secretive nature, does not yet have a public profile or avatar . . .
He will be just making his predictions in the chart below along with the rest of us.
So here it is, week 8 predictions from Tacoman and Supercarlos, NinjaSailorMan, and myself RedskinDoug.
Tacoman is including his score predictions for each game as well as the winner.
Supercarlos is just picking this winner because well, face it, every score would be like 120 billion to 1 and include some sort of awesome celebration highlight reel.

Here is my predicted upset for the week. . . .
Eagles over the Falcons.
I have a bad feeling about this game. Odds on favorite is the Atlanta Falcons. But their one weakness is the run defense.
Vick can run and so can LeSean McCoy.
This is a game that Vick could suddenly find his old self, hide the dog biscuits and turn in a great game.
Andy might realize you are supposed to run, run, run and run some more against the Falcons D.
Virtually nobody is predicting this, so it could happen.
