NFL Confidence Picks WEEK 3 09/21,24,25/2017

 

New rules I learned yesterday.

1. FALCONS vs Lions.  If a knee goes down at the exact same moment the ball breaks the goal line plane; the TD is nullified.   (My thought is in the event of a tie, like this one, should rule in favor of the score).   I watched the replay many, many times and it appears the ball actually broke the plane before the knee went down.  But to give the officials a break I will say they most likely can’t see the ball crossing the line and the knees at the same time.  For them it is EITHER, the knee, or the ball..

2. SEAHAWKS VS TITANS.  In the case of  the “Sherman Call”.  It is now against the rules to run into one of your own players.  It is SO OBVIOUS, and was in real time,  Sherman never even touched the offensive player.  He ran smack dab into his own team mate.

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(last game) as a TIE BREAKER.  The tie is broken by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating teams) 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 pts 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 MIS-COPY OF THE GAMES AND TIMES FEEL  FREE TO EMAIL ME AND TELL ME I GOOFED.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
