Each week of the playoffs, post your picks for each game.
Important: The order in which you post your picks will determine the "confidence points" that you place on your picks.
The first pick will be worth 4 points, the second worth 3, the third worth 2, and the last worth 1.
The wildcard games (in no particular order) this year are set as follows:
CIN @ HOU ATL @ NYG PIT @ DEN DET @ NO
So, if your picks for the first weekend are posted as...
PIT NO ATL HOU
and the actual results are
PIT DET ATL CIN
Then you would earn a score of 4 + 2 for picking PITand ATL correctly, but no points for picking the other two incorrectly.
The first two weeks of the playoffs will have confidence point values of 4, 3, 2, and 1. The conference championship week will have confidence point values of only 4 and 3, and the Superbowl itself will be worth 4.
The winner will be the person with the most points after the winner of SB XLVI is determined.
I will keep a running tally in a spreadsheet, and post the results weekly so that you can see who is ahead and who is behind, and perhaps adjust subsequent picks accordingly. NOTE: You must post your picks before the start of the first game of the weekend. Once the first game starts no changes or additions will be accepted. -- Shine on you crazy diamond...
I really appreciate you doing these contests, by the way. Most of us suck at them but they really add some enjoyment. Thanks.
This is very true. The second sentence is especially true for me. -- "Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats." - H. L. Mencken
Hey, Joe was the man back then...(And yes, as much as I hate to admit it, I remember it well). But Tebow ain't no Joe Willie Namath, and never will be. (You'll have some catchin' up to do in the poll after this one).
Ok..sorry guys...I realize this thread isn't the one where I give sailor a hard time...again. -- I had a life once.....now I have a Computer and a Modem.
Truthfully I can't see the Jets doing anything good any time soon.They just about sold the house the last few years to win "NOW" and they have been going down since.You have to expect some more turnover of players and possibly a coach or two.I don't like Rex as a head coach.He should have just stayed defensive coordinator.I don't see them doing anything special going forward.Its like the days of the "Sack Exchange". They looked like they had a good shot back then but it blew up in their face.
