My totals so far:

Week 1: 11-5
Week 2: 9-7
Week 3: 8-8
Week 4: 8-7
Week 5: 6-8
Week 6: 9-6
Week 7: 8-7
Total: 59-48

I hope everyone understands: My comments about scoring the tie as a loss are just my way of tracking my own score. I certainly don't begrudge anyone who wants to do it otherwise. I hope nobody took it the wrong way. Like Suzan pointed out, it's not like we're doing this for money. And if we were...well I'd be out of the running this year anyway!

On to the next week!

It's all good, Mr Football! We're a free country, and we're free to go either way.

I think I am going to treat the tie as a tie. I didnt lose or win either, so I wont penalize myself--besides, I have been picking bad enough without adding complications to things...

I agree. If the NFL includes it as a tie in the standings, why shouldn't we?

Regarding the tie - count it however you want.

No one got a win for it. So I will consider the wins only in the end.

If a tie makes you feel better, go for it. I just don't want to type in the "-1" for the rest of the season.

I agree, but I reserve the right to sneak it around...count it as a loss for a few weeks, maybe put it as a tie every now and then. eventually the debacle will fade from collective memory and I might just move it on over into the win column when no one is looking.

I'll be watching you! Just kidding, whatever floats your boat! I'm doing the tie as I don't want to add in another loss, get enough of those on my own.
