    Let's give it a try. I'll keep it up as I've done previous two seasons.

    1) Predict Steelers overall record.

    2) Predict Steelers Home record.

    3) Predict Steelers Away record.

    Tiebreaker: Total passing yards for season (regardless who is under center)

    This is based on a 16 game schedule. Should season be shortened we will use Steel_Elvis idea of prorating everybody's predictions.

    2018 winner: HeinzMustard
    2019 winner: ClivefromPIT

    I've got a suggestion. To keep comparisons apples to apples, maybe it would be better to address a shortened season by prorating everybody's predictions by the number of games played divided by 16. For example, if the season ends up being 8 games instead of 16, and someone predicted 12-4, their prediction becomes 6-2 for purposes of this challenge. If there's no adjustment, this will become more a of a challenge to predict how many games are played instead of a challenge to predict how the Steelers do.

    Obviously this is one hell of a different year. Last two year I'd had about 10 picks by now. The traffic to the board is way down for sure and I'm thinking a lot of fans don't think the season will happen.

    If the world is going to end I wish a huge meteorite would slam in to it. Right now it's like being pecked to death by a thousands ducks.

    Overall: 8-7-1
    Home: 4-3-1
    Away: 4-4
    Passing: 3490

    Popcorn gets praised for not having a losing season again.

    NFL ratings continue to plummet.

    Edit: This should work a little better. Thanks.

    OK I revised it.

    8-8 the standard is the standard
    5-3 home
    3-5 away
    4,122 passing yds. If Ben goes down, that number goes down exponentially with him.

    Thanks for the catch. Now, which do you believe caused this:
    a. I used the same mathematical processes MT uses when doing clock management,
    b. I intentionally made an error to see if someone actually read and discovered the error,
    c. Frustration caused by the Pens blowing their playoff games blurred my vision and concentration similar to Steelers losses, or
    d. I screwed it up by not proofing my post before hitting the post reply button.

    a. No. You would have been off by more than one digit if you used that formula.
    b. No. Too subtle for your style.
    c. Always a possibility, especially if coupled with beverages.
    d. Most likely reason.
