[NFL] 2011 NFL Playoff Poll

Here is how it works (the same as last year)...

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.

I really appreciate you doing these contests, by the way. Most of us suck at them but they really add some enjoyment. Thanks.

I agree with nikdo See Profile. So, my picks are the same.

NO
Atl
Cin
Pit

But, my order is different.

Is that the order in which you chose to place your confidence points? PIT for 4, CIN for 3, NO for 2, and ATL for 1?

Remember, the order in which you post your picks determine how much each pick is worth.

This is very true.
The second sentence is especially true for me.

Too many New Years kamikazes-I missed the order part. Changed.

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.

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.
