Don't we use total points in the Monday game as a tie-breaker?

Since we don't have PMs yet, maybe we can keep this more on the most recent pages by bumping it now and then to give everybody who might be interested a better chance to see it.

thanks, RJB for starting this great contest again. It's a fun way of hanging out and getting to know new people and joke around with last year's players again.

I'll post mine tonight. Awesome!

i was under the impression that rjb changed it this year so he could have a better tie-breaker to work with...

Thurs night @ Giants
NY Giants beat Wash RedSkins (Skins just not enough)

@ Pitt Steelers beat Houston Texans
NY Jets beat @ Miami Dolphins (Fish not a playoff team built in a day or even this yr)
@ NE Pats beat KC Chiefs (nearly worst-in-league)
@ GB Packers beat Minn. Vikes (big game - Rodgers pulls through)
@ NO Saints beat TB Bucs at Stupordome
@ Philly Eagles beat St L Rams
@ Buffalo Bills beats Seattle Seahawks (is there life in Seahawks? Run it, Hasselbeck!)
Detroit Lions beat @ Atlanta Falcons (in GA Dome. but both suck)

@ Balt Ravens beat Cinn. Bengals (IF Flacco starts, he’s too new, Ravens D too good)
Jax Jags beat @ Tenn. Titans (Jags distracted by hdln probs? Garrard & turnover r key)
Dallas Cowboys beat @ Cleve. Browns (picks are the key - Romo wins here)
@ SD Chargers beat Carolina Panthers (injuries to Merriman? Chargers dominate)
@ Indy Colts beat Chi Bears (always be leery of can’t lose scenario, but…?)
AZ Cardinals beat @ SF 49ers? (Warner starts at QB. Otherwise, a toss up?)

Tie-breaker: Broncs 20 " Raiders 17
Denver Broncs beat @ Oakland Raiders (To win, Broncs need to run, run & run)

Amazing, isn't it? Kickycan started it & we had 6 players. I took over running the thread in mid-season and I won the regular season title. The 2nd year I had 12 players and Kicky came back to win. The 3rd year we were up to 18 players and Chiso from TX won by a very narrow margin. Last season JPB offered to give me a year off from running this. She did a great job, introduced some innovative stats, got 19 regular players and when the dust settled Cowdoc from Idaho was our champion.
A bit of housekeeping: yes, JPB did go to a different deal last year re the tie-breaker. I warned her that Total Points came perilously close to not determining a winner the previous year because of the increased number of players. She put in place an alternative system that would define a path without requiring players to do much more work. I will be using her rules. I just need to find her rules.
For the 1st couple of weeks there are Thursday night games. I hate them. The rule is we are supposed to make our picks prior to the start of the 1st game, which would be Thursday. I am waiving that rule. If you miss that game you can still pick Sunday and Monday games. But you MUST get those picks in before the kick-off of the 1st game on Sunday. I have to enforce that rule rigidly. Back in a bit.

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.


Wow! We are already up to 15 players! Keep those picks coming.

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.




So pick away.

I hate to come across as harsh, RH, but if being 5 minutes late is okay, how about 15? Or 30? Neither I nor JPB wanted to be put in the situation of deciding how tardy is too tardy. I ticked a couple of people off by enforcing that rule. So it goes.
When we only had a few players I knew that Mike/sublime never woke up on Sunday until just before game time. It was kind of okay that he was a few minutes late.
