The yardage cap is set at 800, couldn't fit Ike's yards in. :sofunny:

Couldn't it have been Steelers Passing Yardage + Andy Dalton's Passing Yardage? Or are return yards also included in the Steelers Total Yardage?

On NFL.COM at the conclusion at the game, i'll check the stat line for the Steelers total yardage, add Dalton's passing yards, and subtract our rushing yardage from the overall number.

Steelers Total Yards + Dalton's Passing Yards - Steelers Rushing Yards.

584 (389 yards of total offense; 255 yards for Dalton- 60 total yards for the Steelers on the ground.)

Final score: Steelers 20 at Bengals 24

It pains me to do it, but until we show something on the road, I don't like our chances, ESPECIALLY with the piles and piles of injury.

God, please let me be wrong!

GO STILLERS!

Steelers Total Yards + Dalton's Passing Yards - Steelers Rushing Yards.

So my question still stands... are return yards included in Steelers Total Yards? Only "total" I've found on NFL.com is a Total Net Yards. If that's the case, make the math a little more easy on yourself and make it Steelers Total Net Passing Yards + Andy Dalton's Passing Yards. Or maybe I'm just not getting it...

oh well...

I see what you're saying, subtracting the rushing yards is unnecessary, and yes, Total net yards is the number we're using.

I set the contest up with the intentions of making it simple (some forums have as many as 12 mathematical properties in contests) and ended up adding a variable that makes absolutely no sense. :doh::sofunny:

All is well, though, as it won't negatively effect the final number.

Bob, I'm going to say... 1 yard

Score/tie-breaker:
Steelers 37
Bengals 30

By the way, I know that someone mentioned this, but...

Steelers total yards - Steelers rushing yards = Steelers passing yards...

Ergo:
Steelers passing yards + Andy Dalton's passing yards.

Yeah, I can't believe I let that idea go through. :doh:

Now, what the hell is up with the one yard guess? :sofunny:

Bayz,

I don't see my guess listed; while it could easily be taken as being tongue in cheek (especislly considering my penchant for sarcasm), I am truly betting that ALL of the other guesses are over ("closest w/out going over").

No, I figured it out shortly after you posted it, but simply forgot to post it. :sofunny:

It's up now. Contest is now closed to new entries. Thanks everyone for your guesses. :hatsoff:

I have 371, and that would make Tegree the winner with the closest guess without going over. I may be wrong though as i'm on my phone, so i'll await confirmation from another administrator.

No, the winning number was 554, I and Dark Storm had 550 but he had a closer tiebreaker guess, 24-21

Well, the net yardage, minus the total rushing yardage plus Dalton's passing yardage still adds up to 371 on my end. I'll await another administrative decision.

369 is the winning number which indeed makes teegre the winner with 1 yd lol

431+105-167 = 369

Steelers total yardage 431 + Andy Daltons passing yards 105 - Total rushing yards 167 = 369

Tie Breaker 24-17

Looks like teegre is the winner without going over.

It's a very smart guess considering the Steelers play as of late, and he was the last to pick. I wouldn't call it cheap, but we'll nickname him the sniper. :chuckle:
