NFL Confidence Picks Week 8 Oct. 23-26-27, 2014

NOTE:  SUNDAY 1 st GAME IS 9:30 AM

Many strange calls last week.  2 players ejected for contact with the Referee.  The way I saw it both instances were merely INCIDENTAL CONTACT.  I did not see any cause for the ejections, unless the REFEREES ARE TOO FRAGILE TO BE ON THE FIELD.    Then we had the unreviewed fumble which cost the SEAHAWKS.  I think even the RAMS fans,  if they are honest about it,  would have to admit SEATTLE recovered the fumble.  But it worked out okay for them.  BUT,  it does give one an idea the Referees have it out for the SEAHAWKS.  Last week they took the win away from Seattle.  So, YES, that will happen on occasion.   BUT two weeks in a row?   I personally have questions.    HOW ABOUT YOU?

 

2014 NFL Team Schedule

For those of you who do not know how confidence ranking goes, let me explain.

If we were playing an office pool,(which we ARE NOT).  The object is to score the most points. To obtain the score YOU rank the teams by how confident you are a team will win its game.  EXAMPLE:  Say this week we have 17 games.  The team you are most confident will win you would ssign the number 17 and follow down to the team you are least confident in and assign that number 1.   We use the Monday night game as a TIE BREAKER.  The tie is broke by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating tams) final score, without going over.

If we were playing this is how my sheet would look;  My pick will be in bold Capital letters.  you can use circling, underlining, or highlighting.  I will show my correct points in Bold

 

This year I am making a change in the scoring.  YOU can adopt the new scoring or continue to use the old scoring. This year we get a negative score for missed games.  We will continue to get a positive score for correct predictions.  EXAMPLE:  LAST YEAR if you scored 1 pt on the first game and you had 15 pt on the second game you would still have a Positive 1.  HOWEVER. this year the same scenario would result with a -14 score.

I will fill in my picks Thursday.  Until then feel free to:

Just copy and paste for your own Fun Pool Use.  Or to see if you can beat me.

IF YOU SEE I MADE A MIS COPY OF THE GAMES AND TIMES FEEL  FREE TO EMAIL ME AND TELL ME I GOOFED.
