Aaron Rodgers' performance is likely to decide the winner of the first Cheesestradamus contest.
Everyone, this is it. This week's Cheesestradamus contest will determine the winner of the contest in the first half. The overall winner will earn a $40 gift card to the Packers Pro Shop and a congratulatory interview post sometime in the next week or so. Buckle down, everybody, because every play will be important this week.
Scores, the first TD, and bonus categories are typical. But this week, you'll guess how many receptions Greg Jennings will record, how many total tackles (solo + assisted) Desmond Bishop will record, Aaron Rodgers' passer rating -- with partial credit point levels at +/- 2.5, 5, and 7.5 points -- and the number of Packers players who catch a pass. A tiebreaker question is included as well - details about that are after the jump.
Here are your links to the form, and the overall standings are after the jump as well. I encourage all people in contention to please submit your own predictions without looking at the others around you in the standings.
NOTE: I initially forgot to populate the list of players on the First TD prediction. It's back up and running, so please update your predictions if necessary.
Here are the details on the tiebreakers. If there is a tie at the top of the standings after Week 9, the player who guesses closest to Aaron Rodgers' passing yardage total will be crowned the winner. I am hiding that column in the spreadsheet so that you can't see each other's predictions for the tiebreaker. If there's STILL a tie, then the tiebreaker will be whichever player recorded the most total points over all 9 weeks in guessing the Packers' scores. If there's still a tie after that, it moves to the total amount earned guessing opponents' scores, then the Packers' first TDs, then the Bonus predictions. One of those should break a tie if necessary. If not, then I don't know what I'll do.
Good luck to everyone this week!
