PFCC Week 1: Bad Week for Brown(s)
by: Sugar (September 12, 2019)
The marathon of the dirty-dawg contests is off and running for 2019. One week down and only 17 to go, plus the playoffs and the Super Bowl. That's
right, we will be writing this column through February 2, 2020! While it was a good week for the NFL and dirty-dawg.com, not as much can be said
if you have some semblance of "Brown" in your name. I have never seen so much press during PFCC Week 1 about a dude who didn't even play a snap.
Antonio Brown? Helmets, frost bite, missed walk-throughs, sexual assault accusation, bad tweets, bad attitude and halitosis. I'm just guessing on the last one. This guy has
done so many questionable if not bad things, I just had to look up where he played his college ball. Central Michigan University. Otherwise
known as my alma mater, much to my chagrin. Good luck to the Pats.
The other brown story, of course, is the Cleveland Browns. Some had picked them as a Super Bowl team. While one game certainly doesn't mean they
aren't going to the Super Bowl, it is looking less likely(?) after wonder boy Baker Mayfield threw the pigskin to the wrong team. Three times.
I think a couple of those picks were returned for 14 points, too. On the flip-side, the Patriots looked every bit the defending champ even
without their new star receiver. Isn't the NFL wonderful? Should be an interesting season for sure.
For Week 1 PFCC, we had 4 players that went 14-1 and all of them lead the rest of the standings. Nathan Jurgensen is the overrall leader with
116 points after missing 2 on Tampa Bay. Jeremy Buckles is in 2nd place with 112 points dropping his 4, also on the Bucs. PFCC 2005 Champion,
Tim Doggett is in 3rd with 110 points. Tim dropped 5 on the...wait for it...The Browns. Lori Orosco was also 14-1 and lands in 4th place with 108 points.
In 5th place is Jerry Bailey with 108 points and, what do we have here, 2018 Champion Gary Petti begins his title defense in 6th place! Gary is currently
in 2nd place in CFCC. Somebody needs to stop this guy!
After Week 1 in Group Play, Going up 4 the TD has the early lead with an average score of 89.2 points, followed by Hailraisers and Desert Dawgs. The
good news is that Week 2 does not have any of those Zero-Dark-Thirty starts over across the pond, but keep an eye out for those in future weeks. For
now, get those Week 2 picks in my Noon CDT on Sunday and good luck.
