So, let me explain this concept, and if the mods deem this inappropriate they can lock the thread.

The concept I have is that board members bet a space in their signature to other board members over regular season statistics of two different players.

 

For instance, I will bet that Aaron Mellette has more regular season Yards than Michael Campanaro.

 

If Mellette produces more yards.  Whoever takes this bet has to put in their signature that I am the greatest poster on this board and Mellette is better than Campanaro.  As you can see I did this two seasons ago with Tandon Doss and LaWuan Williams and lost to HawkPrey. 
You can get creative with posting, as long as it meets board regulation.

Anyone game?

I was thinking either right after the draft, or right before the regular season.  I guess I should have done regular season?

Alright, I'm game!

But I don't like any of your propositions so I'll post my own:

I bet that Jacoby Jones finishes in the top 2 for receptions.

If I lose, I'll put "Flacco is the greatest quarterback, ever." in my signarture for an entire year!  Or something else if you'd like.

Arthur Brown has more tackles than CJ Mosely.

Just kidding. I don't have the nads for that.

I'll say Owen Daniels ends up with more TD's than Pitta. Risky but I'm feeling it.

it just might get forgotten about. You would need to bump if every now and then between now and regular season.

Can't really do it when season started.

Jimmy smith has more interceptions than upshaw sacks.

Cmon really, thats just a given. I bet that Elam has the least INTs in the secondary.

"Outplays" is really hard to determine. Elam should have more tackles/sack and Brooks more INTs because they play to different positions.

Here we are two years later and Laquan is on the team and Doss is off.

All hail izvoodoo!

Kyle Boller Picture. Im gonna be mean.

By the end of the season , assuming Brooks doesn't start. Who is generally the better player.

I'm going to close this for now. This can be started up again MUCH* closer to the season IF someone takes responsibility for tracking the bets. We are not going to track or enforce it. All sig must meet forum guidelines for content and size.

*suggest after final pre-season game.
