A2K NFL Pick 'Um for Season V (Roman Numeral for 5)

 
 
Reply Mon 1 Sep, 2008 05:49 pm
YES! We are back for our Vth season of this game, run here by idiots for the entertainment of folks who don't know one end of a football from the other. The 1st year we had 6 players and then 12 in the 2nd and it has grown and grown.
The idea is that when the folks around the water cooler talk about the games on Sunday, you -yes, you- can say something like "How about them Bears?'

Here is how it works. Each week a schedule will be posted of the games. It will look like this:
Washington Redskins @ NY Giants
Detroit @ Atlanta
and on for as many as 16 games.
All you have to do is pick the winning team in each game by posting here.

You might say Washington, Atlanta, etc. down through the list. If you know the NFL, that is fine, but there are some folks here who in the past have made choices based on some rather bizarre criteria. They have done quite well based on the cutest cheerleaders or the cuter quarterback. Or numerology, whatever that is.
There are some rules, but we tend to make them up as we go along. I will explain some of them later.
WATCH THIS SPACE FOR WEEK #1.

@realjohnboy,
Here is the schedule for week #1
Thursday:
Washington Redskins @ NY Giants
Sunday:
Detroit Lions @ Atlanta Falcons
Seattle Seahawks @ Buffalo Bills
Jacksonville @ Tennessee (I can't remember their nicknames)
NY Jets @ Miami Dolphins
Kansas City Chiefs @ New England Patriots
Tampa Bay Bucaneers @ New Orleans Saints
St Louis Ravens (or something) @ Philadelphia Eagles
Houston Oilers @ PITTSBURGH STEELERS
Cincinnati (whatevers) @ Baltimore (are they the Ravens)
Carolina Panthers @ San Diego Chargers
Arizona Razorbacks @ San Francisco (whatevers)
Dallas Cowboys @ Cleveland Browns
Chicago Bears @ Indianapolis Colts
Monday:
Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers
Denver Broncos @ Oakland Raiders

All you need to do, which will take all of V minutes, is to list the teams you think will win.
But, as a needed tie-breaker, you need to suggest a score for the last game.
So, you might say, Washington, Atlanta...ending with Denver (14-13).
Pretty simple, huh?
Some pretty amusing writing goes on in the interim betwixt folks here on A2K you may not typically interact with. That's the idea. Welcome.

@realjohnboy,
Ah, I was hoping we'd have this fine test of prediction failure once again. The good thing about it is I tend to forget how well or badly I did as spring and summer pass. Fresh new turf, or new fake turf to run around on making picks.

For absolutely no reason that makes any sense, I will play. I mean, I always end up at the bottom of the pile.

@Rockhead,
I haven't even started my advanced picking system yet (where's my frisbee?).

We might get some newbies...

@ehBeth,
Calm down, ehbeth.
The season kind of snuck up on me, much like a 320 lb tackle slamming into a 5'1o" kicker going for a field goal from the 40 yard line.
I have a long list of players here from years past (like the Cowdocs) but no way of pm'ing them for now.
