NFL Conference Play Championships Confidence Picks Jan 18 2015

COMMENTS:  Biggest Blown Call..

The reversal of Dez Bryant REVERSAL.  I replayed the action numerous times.  I had others observe it and we all agreed no doubt he had control.  switched hands, stretched to cross line and scored a TD.  But apparently scoring a TD  is not considered  completing a play in the NFL.

Then you look at the TD in the College Playoff.  Oregon players TD counted.  But I can’t understand how he could have had control when he had like one finger touching the end of the ball when crossed the line.

Oh well two different games.

I know most of you aren’t playing the “pool”  any more.  What we did when I ran the company pool,  was raised the entry fee.  AND heavily relied on the Tie Breaker.

Enjoy the rest of  the season.

I don’t care for the “PRO BOWL”  so you won’t see any posts on that.

But now we are down to the final four.  We should be able to see an all out effort by all teams.  Hopefully it will be more like the NCAA division 3 (I think it was).  VERY,VERY few flags.  They let them play.  Enjoyed that game immensely.

 

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 assign 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 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

 

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 and was wrong 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 Friday.  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.
