Well week 3 was a great week for upsets. The Steelers beating the Seahawks. Looks like the (insert what you want) Curtain did something, not quite sure what, as lots of yards where racked up by the Seahawks. But maybe the curtain blinded the Seahawks to force those all-important turnovers? The other upset was over in the NFC, where the Eagles went down to the Vikings. Not quite sure how that happened, but I'm sure Jon will tell us in due time, wouldn't you Jon? Or maybe Tim could write in and gloat?
Those two major upsets, also upset us predictors. As without them all four us would have been 100% perfect (yes even Pat). The first time ever in the history of, not just NFLAB, but Gameplan, I'm sure?
Thanks to Jon, Pat & Richard for this week's post bag.

Gerald to Pat : Well here's to a good game.
Gerald to Pat & Tim : Congratulations on those up-sets last week.
Gerald to Jon : So what when wrong this time? Wrong gameplan again? Or did they just whip you arse!
Gerald to All : For sale - One useless Centre. Any offers accepted. After 3 games, we've (and I'm blaming him and not Drew. Well not yet anyway) fumbled the long snap 7 times.
Richard to Paul M. : Congratulations to the addition to the family.
Richard to Peter : Thanks for a great game, it was fitting it went to the last play.
Richard to Dave : Great coaching against the Chiefs.
Richard to Graham : Take my advice get rid of the offensive co-ordinator he is after your job. PS kickers are excellent I had hoped to get one but you cannot have enough QBs.
Richard to Pat : Well done on your first win, you got it a lot quicker than I got mine. The last time coaching records for the league were posted, I had the worst winning percentage of any coach ever in AB.
Richard to Gerald : Your defence looks really solid.
Richard to Jon : Good luck in AW for the perfect regular season, only two games to go.
Pat to Alan D : Target 1 - winning a match - achieved. Target 2 - a winning season - still a very long way off!
Pat to the 3 Predictors : Stick it up your respective ****! The 'new boy', with the 'easy schedule', turns on Team Tottle, (and cartwheels after virgin win)! 'The (insert what you want) Curtain', still flaps in the air, but has its feet on the ground!
Pat to Jon : Sorted! All wight, son!
Pat to Gerald : Who is this 'Brat Favre' on your roster as BQ16? Bring him on!
Gerald to Pat : Its ok I'll leave Brat on the bench if that's all the same to you.
Pat to Graham : The AFC schedule has got to be easier than playing the NFC West!
Jon to Tim : That's the equal worst regular season defeat I've suffered in AB, and the second worst ever (31-3 vs Tampa being the worst) and the worst home defeat ever. Congratulation. I was woeful and you completely out-played me.
Jon to Pat : Well done on your first win - and it was against a good team. Obviously my message worked?
Jon to All : Anybody got an offence & defence for sales? Especially a run defence.
Well that's all for the week, this year, this millennium. I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and great New Year. Have fun seeing in the new millennium, even if it isn't. But we won't go down the road, I'm a bit tired of the argument.
All the best and enjoy the festivities, however you celebrate them. I'll be drinking lots, eating lots and enjoying (I hope so anyway) my presents. Not any different from every other year, except this year I won't be going up to Scotland for Hogmanay. I'll be watching the fireworks along the Thames. So if anyone else is doing the same give me a ring and we can see if we can meet up.
