Game Predictions (Week 2)

For the most part, the staff at ThisWeekSPORTS.com mimicked a football team on opening week. There were some strong performances, some showings that prompted optimism and then some that send the staffers back to the drawing board.

Like last year, 10 of our panel of 12, which also includes Eric Frantz, managing editor of JJHuddle, had at least 10 correct. Aaron Blankenship, Scott Hennen, John Hulkenberg and Dave Purpura all went 13-2. One game back at 12-3 were Frank DiRenna, Brad Emerine and Andy Resnik. Don Delco finished 11-4, followed by Frantz, our defending champion, and Patrick Dolan at 10-5 and Jarrod Ulrey at 9-6.

Just like last year, bringing up the back of the pack is Lee Cochran at 8-7.

As Hennen said, “You went 6-9 the first week last year so you already have a two-game improvement.”

Still, last is last.
