NFL Confidence Picks Week 9 Oct. 30 –Nov 02-03,2014

WOW!!   Was anyone else as surprised by the outcome of MONDAY nights game as I was?  I suppose there will be some out there who actually thought Washington would beat Dallas,  REALLY??   It made me think why this Colt McCoy, is a third stringer.   Secondly why did the Redskins Senior VP of Communications Tony Wyllie pull him away from an interview.   May be the Redskins didn’t want to give air time to a  “THIRD STRINGER”,  who just made the football community ask, “Why isn’t this guy getting more playing time”.  Of course you have to admit either the REDSKIN defense was excellent; or the COWBOY Offensive line just SUCKED! 

 

UPDATE:

In fairness to the VP of Communications for the REDSKINS.  He says the reason for the intrusion of the interview was because,  “McCoy was running late for the coaches post game talk”.    I can buy that    BUT….   I think that someone in Mr. Wylilie’s position,  would have handled this differently.  I, would have had someone with me to either explain the situation to the media,  or go with the QB; to the meeting while I explained the situation.  HOPEFULLY this will be a learning experience for Mr. Wyllie.

That Is How I See It.

HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY HALLOWEEN

2014 NFL Team Schedule

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

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.
