Fantasy Football Contest: Predict Brees and Favre’s Passing Combined Passing Yards

Sep 8, 2010

 

The NFL season kicks off tomorrow tonight and I figured we could do something fun, and in the process I could reward one of my loyal readers with a cool gift. The rules are simple. Whoever comes the closest in predicting Brett Favre and Drew Brees’ combined passing yards in the NFL season opener will win the prize.

 

What is the prize you ask? I won a Le Rustique wine rack in a drawing from Zim Consulting (Join their Facebook page to be eligible for future contests). I am not a wine drinker so I decided to share the bounty with you.

 

Enter your guess below and enjoy the game tomorrow tonight.

    430 total combined passing yards. To make it more interesting, Brees will have 320 of those yards.

    joe – 110 yards from Favre. I’m assuming you think he gets knocked out.
    jack – downfall of going first in the showcase showdown

    $1 Bob!!!! Woooo!!! Yeah!!!! (jumps up and down) :)

    Just kidding. I shall claim my wine rack with a highly accurate guess of 474.

    Be not amazed at my gurudom (or the fact I make up words), simply enjoy the warmth of basking in my glow!!! :)

    I just have a feeling the Vikes will have trouble getting things going in the air. I hope I’m wrong of course.

    yeah, but 110 yards is jamarcus russell territory, not Favre.

    408 yards. I’m surprised. Eric was the closest at 412, but alas he did in fact go over. Tommy the Swammy takes it with 393.

    Thank you, thank you very much. They don’t call me TOMMY THE SWAMMY for nothing.

    Now see, 162 for Favre, I wasn’t that far off. And, we did struggle in the air. This offense is not in sync. It was never an issue of Favre being capable, because he is.

    dammit! I had 401 put in but then changed it at the last minute.

    Joe – I stand corrected. I did not see that one coming. Vikes should be fine. They hung in there against the best team in football, and possibly the best coach.
    Eric – that would have been epic.
