NFL CONFIDENCE PICKS WEEK 5 10/06-09-10/2022

 

Panthers:  Fire HC Matt Rhule.  

BENGALS:  FIRST team in NFL history to lose three of its first five games of a season on the final play of those losses.

ONE QUESTION; Y’all?  Will the REFS  Continue to protect Tom Brady all season?  Last week they allowed him about 5 seconds total after the clock wound down on back to back plays to snap the ball, (granted they did call the second one but not until at least 3 seconds after the clock hit ZERO .  This week they call a roughing the passer on textbook sack.  It was very apparent that there was no intent to hurt him.  Hands around the waist, rolling under him,  He was down before he even touched the ground.  There have been many other calls that weren’t quite on the up and up.  But you have to remember things like the underinflated balls against the Colts a few years back.  I’m not saying Tom Brady is not a good QB,  JUST that it seems he has always had the powers that been in the NFL as a favored son status.  It would appear the OLD man doesn’t have what it takes to stand on his own.  (My Opinion.  You have the right to yours).  But can you back it up.   Perhaps he should have remained, RETIRED.   Question does a QB become a passer?  When he gets the ball in his hand?  When he has his hand up in a passing position?  When he hands off to another player. (no wait, that isn’t a pass).  When he brings the ball down and tucks the ball in a running position?  (No that would make him a runner).  Maybe when he is running around looking for more time to throw?  I have it !! Anytime he has the ball in his hands. He is ASSUMED to be a passer, as long as he is behind the line of scrimmage. Yeah that’s right.

Just like my son in high school got called for ROUGHING THE KICKER.  Even though the kicker tucked the ball and took a running step.

We now have ONE undefeated team, the PHILADELPHIA EAGLES  !!!

FINALLY we have a legitimate HOME KING..  Aaron Judge.  The FIRST, (as far I Know), since Roger Maris hit his record of 61 home runs in a season,  WITHOUT the use of STEROIDS !!!  Way to go Aaron !!!  

SIDENOTE: I don’t know maybe Sammy Sosa. After all he just took “FLINTSTONE VITAMINS”.  They seem to have worked as you could see he bulked up just like Mcquire and Bonds.  (But they needed steroids”.

NOTE:  Early Sunday morning game.

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.

BYES: NONE
