NFL Confidence Picks Week 4: 10/01-04-05/2015

REMEMBER:  EARLY GAME SUNDAY 9:30 am SUNDAY!

 

We got to see a little better glimpse to the what the season may hold.  There were a lot of key injuries, this week.  For the most  part we will have to see  how long these key players are out. We know Big Ben Roethlisberger is expected to be out for 4 to 6 weeks.  The question here is does does Michael Vick still have enough left in his tank to keep the the Steelers on the winning track.  For Seattle will Marshawn Lynch heal enough to his old effective running self.

On another note:  We saw the Colts punter, Pat McAffee, turn a bad snap into a credible  scurry for first down.  It appeared he could have run the ball in for a TD.  However; not a role he is used to playing, he perhaps, failed to see that opportunity.  (Or maybe he just ran out of gas).   But, now is the seed planted for a planned play like this to come about?

As for my week’s picks I missed 25% of the games.  THAT SUCKS.  But now I guess it leaves me room for improvement.

Did any of you do any better?  Either Point wise, or Percentage wise?

 

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.

BYE WEEK:  New England Patriots, and Tennessee Titans.
