@ossobuco,
It's when the defense calls a time out just before the kicker attempts to kick a field goal. The idea being that kickers are mental cases (used to be talked about all the time, you don't here that much any more) and that disrupting their focus would have an impact on their ability to make the kick.

In this case it backfired completely.

@JPB,
Ah, that makes sense and I've watched it happening - didn't know the term.

@JPB,
Yeah...They actually showed once that the chances of them missing the first time is higher than the second...like 53%-47% Cause guys give off a free kick to see the way the wind blows and such...And adjust...And it makes sense...And your right mate...It did backfire...Cause he missed that first one...And was able to adjust...

WTG mate...You picked 3 in a row on the hardest week to pick them...

17-13 @ the half.
good news: two easy red zone TD's with the hurry-up.
bad news: gronk re-injured forearm, and woodhead hurt his thumb...

@Region Philbis,
I seen that Gronk went to the sidelines...But I did not see that he had injured it again...Did they say if they think he is coming back? That is a big loss if he is hurt...Woodhead is a very nice piece also...

Totally, totally out-matched...I honestly just think that Shaub is just not skilled enough to ever bring them home...

No fault of his...I just do not think he has got what it takes....

I do not think he is bad...But I just think his overall skills are just above average...

@XXSpadeMasterXX,

he landed on it on that out-of-bounds catch, then went in for an X-ray.

fortunately, he was not needed today...

After Sunday's games and a New England win McG is looking strong. Five of us will be watching from the bench from here on out with both conference champion picks going home next weekend (in red). Everyone with a team in the AFC championship game has chosen New England. The NFC picks are split between San Fran (7) and Atlanta (3). I'll sort through the possibilities of catching McG later in the week.

14 McGentrix
12 SpadeMaster
12 CowDoc
10 ragman
9 ehbeth
8 jpb
8 George
8 mysteryman
7 JPLosman
7 LTX
7 Kolyo
5 tico
5 osso
5 region
5 jespah
5 edgar
5 fbaezer
5 tsar
5 MizDoc
5 rhys
4 Coastal Rat
4 RJB
4 AndyD

I figured out what people have to do mate...But thank you mate...

It is a 3 person race...Between McG...Spades, And ehBeth...

Patriots have to lose next week....And I have to be correct about San Fran winning it all...Or Pats have to lose in the Superbowl...and I have to be correct about San Fran winning it all...And get closer to the final score if the Pats and San Fran meet....

14 McG
12 Spades

NWE loses next week...+0 for McG...+0 for me....14-12

San Fran wins +4 McG = 18...+4 for me = 16

San Fran wins it all...+0 for McG = 18...+6 for me =22

NWE wins +4 McG = 18 +0 for me = 12

San Fran wins next week +4 McG = 22....+4 for me =16

San Fran wins it all + 0 for McG = 22 +6 for me = 22

Final score to determine...


I have looked it over...Some are boxed out...

It looks like Ragman had a shot....But since he has NWE in the Superbowl...And so does McG...And Ragman got GB wrong....I think he is too far behind to win...Sorry mate...

George had a shot....But he is behind McG....And McG took the exact same picks...Sorry mate

I think if JP, And Lion get NWE in the Superbowl....They are too far behind McG...Because McG has NWE...And Lion took GB...And JP took Seattle...Sorry Mates...

And I think you lost tonight mate....With Houston losing...Sorry mate...

And ehBeth...

Has Atlanta going all the way...

She needs NWE, and San Fran to lose next week...

And she needs Atlanta to go all the way to do it...


And I think that everyone else who took Atlanta to go all the way...Are too far behind...

Mystery is too far behind with Denver out...Sorry mate...

Koylo is too far behind with Denver out...Sorry...

And Region and Jespah, and Edgar all have NWE but I think they all had GB...And I think they can not catch McG...Sorry all...


And if Osso get both correct...McG has 22...Even if the Pats lose the Superbowl....And if she gets San Fran right....She ends up with 19...So sorry...

@XXSpadeMasterXX,
And JPB would finish 2nd, I think.
I have tweaked the scoring each year. My goal has been to keep more players "in the hunt" for an extra week or so. This year was perhaps the most extreme I have been with the 4-point bonus for correctly picking the four wild card games. Four players got the bonus; it could have much higher.
By my calculation, but I am not sure, it might have been possible for a player to win this game without correctly guessing the Superbowl winner!
Whether such an outcome would be desirable is another matter.

@realjohnboy,
Yeah...I am sorry...I did not go into details where everyone will place...

I think you are correct RJB...Because McG...Can beat me getting the Superbowl pick wrong...And I being correct...But McG being closer in the final score...But I think that would only be if the Superbowl is worth 6...

One thing you could do...That should help eliminate that for next year....Is to double the score, after this week...for the SB...So you make it worth 8...And not 6...

so...1, 2, 4, 8...

I think it is cool to give bonus points for a perfect WC week...

But another thing that could help is to give people 2 extra points...

You did a great job mate! Sometimes it will just work out that way...

It all depends on what people pick....

If NWE and GB were going for it...There would be about a 6 person race...because CowDoc, took GB...And a lot of others took NWE...

If a big favorite gets knocked out early...Then in theory many will be knocked out...Or have a very small chance to win...

And this is good because it means you have many participating...

The only way to make it very close all the way to the end...With many...Would be 1 point for every pick...And then like 4 or 5 for the Superbowl....And then plus or minus one...For being off for final score...
