What a S-T-R-A-N-G-E week. RIGHT ?
It was like FRIDAY the 13th extended from Thursday to Monday.
Any of you have a better explanation.
I know I had my worst week in 20 years. By the way, HOW WAS YOUR WEEK?
We saw 3 games with a single point margin. And one of those was a really late come back by the Mighty Patriots. They were, what like, 4 and 10, which they converted to get them to FG position. They were somehow able to get that much needed yardage. Luck, Skill, or a combination. I think it was a COMBINATION. And much more of the time than we like to admit, THAT is the difference between a W or L.
The big QUESTION this week is……HAS PEYTON MANNING PLAYED HIS LAST GAME??? I think not. Do you think if he does come back it will be in a back up postition. NOT ME. Face it he has nothing to prove. He holds so many records. But having played sports myself, You always have that little voice saying ” ONE more Year”. But if you will remember; I thought Manning should retire before he left for Denver. I’m sure he will do a lot of thinking from now until next year. I really don’t expect an answer to be quickly made. BUT, I am sure if he decides he has not enough to contribute, to be competitive. He will make the choice to retire. But with all his knowledge, SOME ONE will want to add him to their coaching staff. He would be good on any level, Pro, College, High School, whatever level he wants to be.
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.
