                  MARK JOHNSON WINS 3RD STRAIGHT FOOTBALL PREDICTS
     Mark Johnson defeated runner-up Cap Scholl by 77 points to win his 3rd straight football  
predictions.   Mark also beat the Odds by 51 points.
     This is Mark's 3rd consecutive win and 6th win overall.  Mark has also finished 2nd 4 times and is easily
our all time leading football predictor beating 90% of the predictors in an average year.    He has finished
in the top 10% 13  times in the 22 years he has predicted, and he has finished 1st 3 times, 2nd 3 times and
4th in last 7 years.  Mark led 10 of 17 weeks this year and  has led 36 of the 51 weeks the last three years.
     Mark is the first predictor to win football predicts 3 straight years.  Nelson accomplished the feat in
 basketball in 2004-6.  
     The top three all-time football predictors (Mark, Nelson and Bob Scholl) have combined for 21 wins and
16 seconds in 46 years of football predictions (only one first and no seconds in first 6 years).
     Odds would not have finished 1st this year for the 12th time in last 25 years if counted as a predictor.
     Cap Scholl picked 14 winners in week 17 while Dick Beeuswaert, Mark Johnson and Phil Hensley
picked 13 winners.  Dick Beeuswaert was POW in the final week due to better point spreads.  Dick's key
picks were KC by 3 over Denver, New England by 14 over Buffalo and New Orleans by 14 over Carolina.
     Eleven of the 16 predictors predicted all 17 weeks. Thanks to everyone for being so diligent and for predicting.
