While watching the SEAHAWKS/PATRIOTS game I kept wondering about the mask situation in the bench area. We all know the mask is supposed to cover the mouth and nose. However it hit me some of the coaches were either not wearing masks all the time or had them below the nose. I rationalized they must be beyond the 6 foot area. Then thinking back to other games the same situation, EXCEPT the ones wearing the plastic shields.
The thing i found amusing was how “OLD HABITS ARE HARD TO BREAK”, Did you notice that some of the coaching staff, (even though they were wearing masks), HELD up papers or something to hide behind so no one could read their lips!
I must say i am extremely disappointed in the SEAHAWKS lack of defense. YES ! they did stop the final score ateempt on the one yard line. But SO MANY ,(TOO MANY), times Newton was left all alone for what seemed liked 10 seconds with nary a SEATTLE defender within 5+ feet of him. If they get some DEFENSE. it would take some pressure off Russell Wilson and almost make them a shoo in for another Super Bowl Championshi[.
We have FOUR undefeated team meeting this week. RAMS vs BILLS. CHIEFS vs RAVENS
For those of you who are new here. This is 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. You add up the TOTAL CORRECT PICKS.. That would be your score. We use the Monday night (Last game played) 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.
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 1 pt.
1. HOWEVER. with the same scenario new scoring system would result with a –14 score
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
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.
