I was pleased with my picks, this week. The first week is usually the hardest. It is the first time we actually see the teams play. Several star players were injured; some will miss multiple games, some were merely out for the remainder of the game. We saw the great Marshawn Lynch. stopped in a crucial play. The Giants coach lose track of opponents downs, and tell his team not to score. An apparent misunderstanding between the kicker, and coach in an OT situation. But all in all a pretty interesting week.
With the headset controversy at the Patriots, game…..Well let me say it is getting hard to not to put the team from New England as the N.E. CHEATERS. After all we know, that must be in their NFL contract, a special clause. New England can do whatever they want. No harm will come to them.
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 16 games. The team you are most confident will win you would assign the number 16 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
YOU can adopt the scoring described above. Or, the optional method. A negative score for missed games. We will continue to get a positive score for correct predictions. EXAMPLE: if you scored 1 pt on the first game and you had 15 pt on the second game and lost you would still have a Positive 1. HOWEVER. with the same scenario new scoring system 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 MISS COPY OF THE GAMES AND TIMES FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME AND TELL ME I GOOFED.
I had some requests from the people who copy and paste, for their own pool to move the network out of the score column. I aim to please. So I hope this is better
GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
