Krell and Lynch post perfect 8-0 records in week 2 Armchair Quarterbacking action

 Greg Krell and Rodney Lynch picked perfectly in Week 2 Tri-City Record Armchair Quarterback contest action. Both notched 8-0 records as the college football season opened and their games were added to our mix.

Each week, our six intrepid football fanatics determine the winners of eight games. One of the eight games is selected as a tie-breaker game. The contestants must predict how many points will be scored in that game.

In the event there is a tie in the weekly standings, the tie-breaker game is used to determine the AQB’s rank.

With Krell and Lynch both holding 8-0 records – the best this week – their place in the rankings fell to the Michigan/Florida game. The Wolverines beat the Gators 33-17.

Krell predicted 59 points would be scored in the contest, while Lynch guessed a little higher at 63 points.  That gave Krell the #1 spot for the week, and Lynch landed in second place.

Bryan Conrad upped his game from last week’s 4-4 outing with his 7-1 record. Tim Hildebrand also went 7-1 this week and their place in the standings depended on their tie-breaker guess.

Conrad predicted 52 points would be scored, while Hildebrand went a little light with 44 points. Conrad took third place, and Hildebrand landed in fourth.

Fifth and sixth place also came down to the tie-breaker game.  RoxAnn Rodney-Isbrecht and Chris Leach battled it out, as Rodney-Isbrecht went with 45 points and Leach predicted 57. Rodney-Isbrecht earned the fifth-place finish, while Leach had to settle for sixth place.

With his impressive week this week, coupled with his second-place finish in the overall standings last week, Krell moves into first place with a 15-1overall record.

Rodney-Isbrecht moves down a spot into second place, just one game out of first, with a 14-2 record.

Three players are knotted up in third place with 13-3 records: Leach, Hildebrand, and Lynch. That leaves Conrad in sixth place with an 11-5 record, just two games out of third place and four from first.

Professional football players take the field this weekend for their first game of the season. Those games have been added into the mix as we now officially task our AQBs with predicting high school, college, and pro games.
