it's a PASSING league after all now!

a new game for the Viking forum, with thanks to @titanrick


-it's a game to see which game player can rack up the most cumulative passing yards over the entire season, making use of 17 different QB's and their weekly passing performances.
-every week of the 17 week NFL 2012 season, game participants choose one quarterback from any team of their choice, with the hopes that QB has a big game and racks up passing yards.
-you can only pick each individual QB once. you pick a new QB every week, prior to kickoff of that player's game. 
-i will tabulate and post passing yards for each QB and player each week, following the last game of each week.
-5000 yards over 17 weeks is the goal (a game average of 295 yards) but the game winner is the dude with the most yards.

You must have your pick in before his game has started. If your QB is scratched from the lineup BEFORE the game, you are allowed to pick a new QB from the remaining games. If your QB gets hurt DURING the game, you DO NOT get to pick a new QB and DO NOT get the yardage his replacement throws for.

New rule: If you realize you accidentally picked the same QB twice in the season but not before you have time to change it, you will be given the lowest yardage from a starter (who you haven't previously picked) in that second week.

(Copying from last year... thanks Klomp!)

Deshaun Watson screwed me over last year Week 1 (freakin' 176 yds), so I can't do it again, despite a fairly decent matchup for him against the Saints defense...so.

Week 1:  Jameis Winston  

I'll have to consider changing my pick...

I kid!!! Just remember, the only place you can go is up!



(...or stuck where you were at, but hey its all in fun!)
