You called it: Historic week for predictions

9/23/2009



Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The Wall of Fame is nearly quadrupling in size after 14 people picked NFC West scores and outcomes exactly for Week 2.

This is our second season running the contest and the first time we've added more than two people in a week.

Great, great work.

Eleven people predicted the Cardinals' 31-17 victory over the Jaguars. That is a common final score, but as a coach might say if this were a game, "I'm not taking anything away from RiWeagley, noahhasabs, RedRumRBS, kstaub869, Primeau1203, ballsthompson, alvaden, Seahawks Ya Dig, SeahawkBell, Jeremy-Clark and brobbb91. They picked the score correctly and we'll add their names to the Wall."

Three others predicted the 49ers' 23-10 victory over the Seahawks: John510asb, RVAninersFAN, ttmoney.

The updated and significantly expanded Wall of Fame now features:

  • Elion245. Forecast the Redskins' 20-17 victory over the Seahawks in Week 12 (2008).

  • Leesters. Forecast the Bears' 27-3 victory over the Rams in Week 12 (2008).

  • habitat730. Forecast the Cardinals' 34-10 victory over the Rams in Week 14 (2008).

  • IamJonasJones. Forecast the Cardinals' 30-24 victory over the Falcons in a wild-card playoff game (2008 postseason).

  • JohnnyBloodletter. Forecast the 49ers' 20-16 victory over the Cardinals in Week 1 (2009).

  • RiWeagley. Forecast the Cardinals' 31-17 victory over the Jaguars in Week 2 (2009).

  • noahhasabs. Forecast the Cardinals' 31-17 victory over the Jaguars in Week 2 (2009).

  • RedRumRBS. Forecast the Cardinals' 31-17 victory over the Jaguars in Week 2 (2009).

  • kstaub869. Forecast the Cardinals' 31-17 victory over the Jaguars in Week 2 (2009).

  • Primeau1203. Forecast the Cardinals' 31-17 victory over the Jaguars in Week 2 (2009).

  • ballsthompson. Forecast the Cardinals' 31-17 victory over the Jaguars in Week 2 (2009).

  • alvaden. Forecast the Cardinals' 31-17 victory over the Jaguars in Week 2 (2009).

  • Seahawks Ya Dig. Forecast the Cardinals' 31-17 victory over the Jaguars in Week 2 (2009).

  • SeahawkBell. Forecast the Cardinals' 31-17 victory over the Jaguars in Week 2 (2009).

  • Jeremy-Clark. Forecast the Cardinals' 31-17 victory over the Jaguars in Week 2 (2009).

  • brobbb91. Forecast the Cardinals' 31-17 victory over the Jaguars in Week 2 (2009).

  • John510asb. Forecast the 49ers' 23-10 victory over the Seahawks in Week 2 (2009).

  • RVAninersFAN. Forecast the 49ers' 23-10 victory over the Seahawks in Week 2 (2009).

  • ttmoney. Forecast the 49ers' 23-10 victory over the Seahawks in Week 2 (2009).

The fine print: Those submitting predictions for "You called it" must pick the winner correctly for their scores to be considered. Scoring is easy to calculate. The difference between a 20-17 prediction and a 31-14 outcome would be 14 points. We would calculate this by adding the difference between 20 and 31 to the difference between 17 and 14.

We'll begin taking predictions for Week 3 later in the week.
