Well at least this time when I Played-up, I kept it close. Unlike last season when I was totally humiliated, against the Broncos. I'll just have to figure out how to pass the bloody ball, and stop throwing those interceptions. Again, it looks like Bledsoe will lead the league for interceptions come the end of the season. The annoying things is, this time I've got 4 star wide-outs for the idiot to pass to and still he picks the wrong colour. Anyone want to trade?
Some good results last week, the best of the bunch had to be the Rams finally losing that unbeaten record, to a great performance by the Saints. With a bit of luck, the 49ers may push the Rams to the wire for the division, at least it's not a one horse race. In the AFC East it's now a two horse race between the Bills & Jets. The AFC Central again looks like a two horse race, but some bad results from the Bengals may just let the Steelers in. In the AFC West both the Hawks and Broncos are battling it out for the divisional crown, with the Broncos having a 2 game lead. The NFC East look very tight, and if the Cowboys can recover from their slump, it might be between three teams. And finally we come to the worse of the league, where again, it looks like the uncoached Buccs could get to the play-offs. Unless the Lions, Vikings & Bears start showing some form.
Well that's it for the league round up, thanks to Jon & Graham for their invaluable contributions for this week newsletter.

Gerald to Paul S. : So are you still away, or can't you be bothered to write in? If it's the first I'll let you off, otherwise.....
Gerald to All : In last week predictions, I said that we where due for an upset and by mistake put down the Cards over the Eagles. When I obviously meant the Saints over the Rams. Sorry about any confusion that may have caused. But I did warn you about the typos before hand.
Gerald to Geoff : Congratulations on that great win.
Gerald to Jon : Thanks for the encouragement at the end of your letter, but have you seen who I still have to play.....
Graham to Paul M : Well, a right kiss of death you turned out to be!!
Graham to Geoff : Brilliant performance. How can you beat me and Jon and still be 2-8 (I suppose we should be grateful you won't get the chance to whip our butts in the postseason. Maybe next year . . .)
Graham to Gerald : I'm not moving far (about half a mile!) and I'd love to be able to tell you when. But . . .
Graham to Jon : I'd already spotted the turnovers from the league report. And the only thing a Saints game summary tells you is that anything can happen!!
Graham to Richard : See, I can do it too!!!
Jon to Geoff : You deserve a medal. All is forgiven!
Jon to Graham : Well, that's you as well as me.
Jon to Bruce : Obviously your offence responded to the 'pussycats' taunt.
Jon to Dean : Come on! It's about time you won again. You seem to have got the D playing OK - you just need some offence.
Jon to Paul M. : Don't worry, you'll have far less free time soon!
Well that's all for this week issue of the Drawing Board. All the best, and here's hoping we have lots of upsets on the run-in to the play-offs.
