NFL CONFIDENCE PICKS WEEK 7 10/20-23-24/2022

CARDINALS: Chicago Cardinals, (once known as St. Louis Cardinals, now known as Arizona Cardinals ).   Hall of Famer Charley Trippi dead at age 100.  Trippi played for Cardinals from 1947 thru 1955. Trippi was a graduate of University of Georgia.

I can’t think of a player more deserving to be elected to the NFL Hall of Fame.    He helped his team win the NFL CHAMPIONSHIP in 1947.   Second Team ALL PRO 1947.  First Team ALL PRO in 1948.   Two time Pro Bowler in 1952 and 1953.  Arizona Cardinals Ring of Honor.

Cardinals owner Charles Bidwell lured him to his team with a  $100,000 4 year contract.

Charley Trippi

Some teams have QBs, RBs, DBs, Punters, and Return Team specialists.  Charley Trippi was all of the above.  He helped his team win the NFL Championship in 1947.

You see during his stay in the NFL Charley is the only player to have 3,506 RUSHING YARDS. 2,547 PASSING YARDS.   1,321 RECEIVING YARDS.  Along with this he scored 23 Rushing yards, Threw 16 TDs with 31 INT. and Received 11 TD. . Yes, Truly a well rounded, Talented player.   Now you see why I said Most Deserving player in the NFL Hall of Fame.  I wonder how much a man like him would be paid today

Rest In Peace:  CHARLEY TRIPPI, 12/14/1921 – 10/19/2022 .

P.S. He was a much sought after baseball player; being pursued by the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Boston Braves, (now Atlanta Braves), and Philadelphia Phillies.

 

 

I usually have a bad week around Halloween.  But Halloween must have come early this year.  (At least I HOPE it was early).   Looking back at my records,  THIS is definitely the worst week I have ever had.  I hope y’all did better.  It would be near impossible to have a worst week.       I was close to the final score just 4 too many points.  You always have to look for something good in weeks like my last two.

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.
