I grabbed a little breathing room this week by going 12-1, and improved my overall record to 69-35. Lester (66-38) went 10-3 this week, and Brendan (65-39) went 11-2, keeping them in second and third place, respectively.

Besides Brendan, three others posted 11-2 weeks: TJ (64-40), Ronk (61-43) and Sam (61-43). Dane, Steven and Kev also sit at 61-43, and Kay now has a record of 60-44.

Gilbert and Spongie... I'm not really sure what to say about these lads. All I can think of is 'hats off to Gilbert for finally getting to .500'.

Congrats to WCG's Pick 6 champion for week 7, Mearly... good jorb! Also good to see some new names on the leaderboard. Keep it going, ladies and gents.

For the first time this year, I failed to record a top-five finish. I felt pretty confident as I was sitting in 6th place with Brandon Marshall left to play on Monday night. Evidently there were a few Bears-heavy teams left to play.

Take a couple minutes, and go get your picks in before tonight's kickoff between the Vikings and Buccaneers. View the full Windy City Gridiron leader board for week 6 >
