Go Steelers!

It's always fun when all three of the teams I root for play at the same time but I only get one of the games. That's part of why o love these threads. I can keep up a bit with the games I can't watch.

Having a hard time getting into sports this year, and I hate that some teams are letting fans in stadiums.
That being said, Go Steelers.

It returns!

PFF has an api that they didn't lock down. I paid for a year of data to alleviate my guilt a bit (it was cheap!). Includes historical data till 2008. Have some more styling to do, and I'm working on a weighted formula to determine the Jake Winner when there are ties (which happens a lot!).

Ultimate Jake
- Weighted completion percentage, worse affects position more. 
- Scores improve position, passing TD's are weighted higher
- Score differential slightly affects position
- History multiplier, get a lot of jakes? Then you are weighted higher.

I'll have that part ready sometime next week. I'm running a bunch of math at the server to see if I can get a consistent result that elevates the truly worst player. I'm also looking to see if I can get slightly more advanced stats through pff, but I haven't found the right endpoint yet.

I'll be in and out for the first games, GO BILLS!

I enjoy train-wreck television, so Wingfoot is actually gonna get my main screen ahead of the football today. Oddly, the announcers keep referring to a Zalatoris on the leaderboard, but I can't seem to find it.

CBS is poaching an NFC game for the early one. Dammit I wanted DEN-PIT. Gotta find a stream then. Blah.

Oklahoma minus the panhandle also gets NY-Chi. So much for being a Donks secondary market.

Vikes+Giants ML for underdog mini parlay.

Pats are going to get rocked tonight.

I don't even know why they allow the Jets to play anymore.

At least the Niners game is being televised here in Seattle. Small reward for this shiat week. I hope.

Because sometimes the Browns and Lions win and we have to have somebody to point and laugh at

I just want to state for the record that Jim Rome is an incredible douchebag.
 
2020-09-20 12:40:09 PM  
Hmmm...do I actually watch my team's full game (since they're playing the team whose market I'm in), or do I enjoy the clips from the other games on NFL RedZone as usual?

Difficulty:  WFT vs. Cards.

My bookie has paid my mortgage for three of the past four years, thanks in large part to the Jets. The Browns are paying my taxes.

Damn, didn't realize the Ravens don't play til the afternoon games... guess I'll watch the Stillers and hope to see Ben get injured. Good time to update the photo blog anyway.

G'day, Farkers!

Pittsburgh should stomp out Denver pretty easily. The sad pedophilia Bronies should be fast and furious all day long.

Now, go Packers!
