PREDICTOR OF THE WEEK    
Bob Thomas     218    13-3
           BOB KOLLER  WINS FOOTBALL PREDICTIONS BY 103 POINTS OVER 2ND PLACE - BOB THOMAS POW
     Bob Koller beat 2nd place Mark Johnson by 103 points to win the 2005 Football Predictions.  This is the largest margin of victory
since 1995 when Mark Johnson defeated 2nd place Nelson Slagle by a record 151 points. Bob is the 18th different winner in the
39 year history of the contest.  Bob is the second new winner since Bob Stanley won 18 years ago in 1987.  Jerry Slagle won his
first football predictions in 1998.  Bob and Mark picked the correct winner 72.64% of the time which is the highest % since 1979
when the Odds picked 75.5% winners and Nelson Slagle picked 75.4% winners.  Only once since 1979 has anyone ever picked
more than 70% winners.
     In addition, this is Bob Koller's 3rd season of predicting football.  That makes him the winner is his 3rd year 
the fewest of any winner since 1980 when Ray Rodgers won in his 2nd year of predicting.  Bob also broke up the
streak of Mark Johnson and Nelson Slagle who have won the last 5 years of football predictions.
     Bob Thomas was the only predictor to pick 13 of the 16 games correct and was Predictor of the Week.  Phil Hensley picked
12 winners and the remaining predictors picked 11 or fewer winners.  Bob's only misses were wins by Denver, Green Bay and St. Louis.
     Congrats Bob Koller!   Thanks to all who participated this season.
