NFL Week 12 Confidence Picks Nov.20-23-24. 2014

What a terrible week.

Do you think RG III,  SHOULD he be the starting QB.   I must say I don’t.  He doesn’t seem to take any responsibility .   He needs to become THE  LEADER.   Admittedly the DEFENSE played poorly,  as well.    Who is the LEADER  of the DEFENSE.  I still feel the  same as when I wrote in my article of January 13,2012.  (here is the exact thing i stated, when speaking of the Indianapolis Colts considering their first round draft pick);  “Want someone who is willing to follow MANNING,  and learn from the master, with gradually increasing playing time.  Then Robert Griffin III is your man”.

Colts 1st Round Draft Pick Is…..


QUESTION;  RE: LeGarrette Blount.   Apparently there are and have been issues.  What we don’t know is if every avenue to attend to the issues between Blount, team members, coaches, or management were explored.  It is obvious that something was eating at Blount.  Some may see his actions as childish.  But the issue was very real to him.  So it seems the STEELERS  were looking for an EASY OUT. 

But as casual fans do we deserve to know, as,  Paul Harvey would say.  ” The REST of the STORY.

UPDATEBLOUNT NOW A PATRIOT.

 

2014 NFL Team Schedule

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 17 games.  The team you are most confident will win you would ssign the number 17 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

 

This year I am making a change in the scoring.  YOU can adopt the new scoring or continue to use the old scoring. This year we get a negative score for missed games.  We will continue to get a positive score for correct predictions.  EXAMPLE:  LAST YEAR if you scored 1 pt on the first game and you had 15 pt on the second game you would still have a Positive 1.  HOWEVER. this year the same scenario 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.
