Thanks to all those wished me the best for my new job. Its hard work
working isn't it? I'm having to get use to getting up early in the morning,
showering etc and getting out the door by 7.30am. Which is a great change,
as I haven't done that since February. I'm also having to learn what a
CAD system is.
Well I total forgot about the newsletter until Sunday evening, which
in the past wasn't a problem as I could do in on Monday, but now I've
work, I'll have to try and do it at work... Well its Tuesday and I'm trying
to get this finished and out to catch the midday post, so with luck you'll
be able to read this. Sorry about the lack of anything, I've only had
time to cut and past what people sent me.
Thanks to everyone who sent stuff in, sorry but no time to mention you
all by name, but you know who you are and should have the credit in the
newsletter it self, I hope?
As said I've had to cut this short, as far as I can remember only Graham
submitted any predictions, if that isn't the case, sorry and I will use
them for the purposes of calculating the percentages.
MD @ OA
Graham : Its been tough so far his season for
the Fish, but they ought to get a welcome win this week. MD 10
BB @ KC
Graham : If the brilliant Chiefs turn up this
could be very interesting. But you have to suspect they won't. BB 10
NJ @ CL
Graham : Surprise defeats for both last week
and this could be close. I just favour the Browns. CL 3
NE @ TN
Graham : Should be a hard-hitting game. Toss
a coin and say . . oooh . . . Pats. NE 1
CI @ SS
Graham : Could be plenty of yards here (almost
a given now in a Bengals game). Hawks are at home so maybe a slight edge
to them. SS 3
PS @ DB
Graham : Both were disappointing last week.
Broncos need to get their running game going to take the pressure off
the new QB. DB 3
WR @ AF
Graham : Falcs might find it tough to repeat
last week's form against a great Skins D. WR 10
PE @ NS
Graham : Eagles have rediscovered the knack
of finding a way to win, and should make it seven in a row. PE 10
DC @ DL
Graham : Lions were a bit unlucky again last
week and they could make it awkward for Dallas, but they still need some
offensive improvement. DC 1
AC @ CH
Graham : Great win for Bears last week, so
they should keep up the pressure on the Vikings. CH 14
MV @ SF
Graham : NFC Game of the Week, and it could
be a great one. Niners running game to give them the edge. SF 1

||As if by magic, the Chiefs of week 1 were back!!. Big chunky ball
control . . . but where's it been?
||The Cards offence had been looking sporadically better. But not
||Is he still at home? He deserves the benefit of the doubt for now.
||Brilliant, and against an in-form Cleveland D. 35 first downs and
no turnovers! Vikings, Bears and 'Skins deserve mentions too.
||A great recovery from the week 5 disaster.
||A terrific gameplan awesomely executed.
||Not too many obvious candidates again but the Pats did get less
yards (just), less first downs and committed more turnovers than the
Lions. Not much to go on, but Gerald tried so hard to persuade me
he deserved the award the other week it tipped the balance in his
favour this time.
Brucey to All : Check out brucey's NFLAB stats
web-page if you've got access. You can find it at brucey.net/nflab.
Graham to Ian Davies : Always nice to have
a warning that we're dealing with a veteran when a new coach appears.
I have taken notice and will adjust gameplans to suit. Not that it'll
matter ... probably!
Graham to Jon : It's not so unusual for you
to win that one. Bruce's stats show us about even usually splitting the
games each season. I didn't win either game last season though. It's looking
like a real battle for the division this season. I think field position
killed me. I had to go the length of the field all game and the offense
just couldn't keep up. Time for a new gameplan strategy next time we meet
Graham to Peter : After the first quarter
I thought it was going to be about 50 each!! Good luck on turning your
season round, and hope you don't consider my tipping you for the Superbpwl
to have been the Kiss of Death.
Graham to NFC : Well done! After the humiliatians
of a couple of seasons ago it looks like we're back in business big time!
Gerald to AFC : What happened? Even I managed
to Diddley it!

A Reprieve for the Barrys ?
I know Graham got rid of them a few weeks back but I want to nominate
myself for a Barry please... the reason? - one small change in my defensive
gameplan changed our short yardage defence from the Titans game (they
were 1/10, we controlled the clock and the game, and won easily) to the
Falcons game (they were 11/13, they controlled the clock and the game,
and won easily). My inability to stop the Falcons on SY was the primary
reason they won (although there were others...).
Hoping to get back on track against the Jets this week!
NFLAB & Gameplan on the net
Well its plug time, I've had a couple of requests over the past few
weeks to pint some websites, that deal with (as in the case of Bruceys)
NFLAB, but also Gameplan in general. If you know of any others please
let me know and I'll publish them.
The official (?) website of NFLAB. We have a plea from Brucey for ANY
info for before week 5/1995.
This site is a small but growing gathering of gameplanners from different
leagues talking about game related things.
This site is devoted to Gameplan, and hosts standings and such for over
ten different leagues. A chance to see how others are getting on.
No time to do the turnover table, with luck I should have my life sorted
out before the next issue.
