KDP's 10 For 10: Week 8 Ain't Great, But It's Here


With the Cowboys suffering a batch of performance-affecting injuries, you can drown your sorrows with your fellow Cowboys fans by trying to go 10 for 10 in Week 8! Pick'Em!

Here was my initial thought when I reviewed all of the entries from last week's contest... was this the football deities giving several Cowboys fans their final joyous moment of the 2012 season?

Yes, football is next man up... we know the war cry. Still, this was a devastating week of injuries as the team lost Sean Lee for the season, Phil Costa for a month and a half and is still without a healthy DeMarco Murray. The mettle of Cowboys fans that select Dallas as a winner week in and week out will be truly tested this week in 10 for 10.

That's why its a great thing we had so many winners last week! I gave last week the headline "Lucky Week 7 Is Here!" and boy was it here in spades. 26 people were able to navigate a truncated schedule of only 13 games to select 10 winners. The previous record was 19 from Week 12 last season.

For a full break down into how last week happened, make sure you check out my right hand man, hookerhome, and his extraordinary Fan Post on Week 7. Tremendous job detailing trends, including a look at only 27 people correctly picking Tennessee over Buffalo in the one true "underdog" of the week.

Let's take a look at the revised 10 For 10 Hall Of Fame, congrats to all that have joined and a special shoutout to those that are now two-time inductees. Hat tip for the new layout goes to HH again.

So who has what it takes to go 10 for 10 this week? Will anyone be able to do it in back-to-back weeks? Will this be the first week in history where most entrants pick against our beloved, beleaguered Cowboys? Let's get it on!


1 - YOU MUST PREDICT A WINNER OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS GAME IN YOUR TEN PICKS. If you leave off the Cowboys game, then only nine other games get counted, and the Cowboys game is scored as "wrong", no matter who wins.

2 - You must pick ONLY 10 games. If you pick more than 10, I will score the first nine plus the Cowboys game. If you pick fewer than 10, then you need more fingers to count on; all non-picks will be scored as wrong.

3 - You must make your entry as a comment, not as a reply to another comment. I will only go down the left margin when scoring. Anything indented will get no love here, playa.

4 - You must include the entire matchup in your entry. Simply BOLD the team in the matchup you are picking to win. No lists of only the winners you pick. If you want me to take the time to score your entry, take the time to format it correctly. It's easy, just copy and paste all the matchups from the post, then highlight your pick for each game and hit the B button. Oh, please do me and hookerhome a favor - leave the games in the same order, and delete the extra games that you are not picking (leave just the ten that you want scored). It makes tabulation much easier.

5 - Hit the preview button, because once it's submitted, that's it - there's no turning back.

6 - Picks must be in before the early games of Sunday kickoff in order to try to score 10-for-10. Here are two exceptions:

  • If you're including THURSDAY night's game in your picks but not ready to pick Sunday's games, post 'THURSDAY GAME ONLY' in your subject line.
  • If you miss the early games kickoff deadline with your picks, you can still submit picks for games that have not kicked off (as long as the Cowboys haven't kicked off). You won't be able to score 10-for-10 without the early games, but that might help you in the overall season-long race.
  • Don't forget to look for the "10 For 10" hub on the new front page! You'll always be able to find the latest article or Fan Post there for easy access to get your picks in!
