Hey everyone... so i am going to start off the playoff pick-em from last year. Rules will be the same from last year.

You'll assign a point value (1 to 4 if there are 4 games, etc.) to each game based on how strongly you feel about the accuracy of your selection. If your selection is correct, you'll receive points equal to the confidence-point value you associated with that game.

So, if you pick Pittsburgh to beat Dallas and assign the game a confidence point value of 4, you'd get 4 points for a correct pick, but no points if Dallas wins. You don't lose points for an incorrect selection. The higher the number, the more confidence you have in winning.

Each week's points will be tallied, and the player finishing with the highest total at the end of the year will be the winner of the group.


Wildcard week and Division Round are worth 10 points (4-3-2-1 rankings)
Conference Round will be worth 7 points (4-3 rankings)
Superbowl is worth 7 points (4 for correct pick, and 3 for the participant who guesses closest score sum of game)

USE LAST YEARS EXAMPLE TO CLARIFY IF YOU DO NOT REMEMBER OR ARE A NEW PARTICIPANT. LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT MORE CLARIFICATION. HAPPY PLAYING




Name, (Week point total), overall points




1. [b]AUSSIEBEANS: (5)(8](7)(0)... 20 points
1. PAWNO: (5)(8](4)(3)... 20 points[/b]

3. XBAY: (2)(6)(7)(4)... 19 points
4. TMC: (0)(7)(7)(4)... 18 points

6. MR. CRACKERZ: (0)(3)(7)(0)... 10 points

I think we should have a deadline for anyone joining. I don't think we should have people joining out of no where in the middle of this. If you're in, say it now before the first game and post your picks.

Ah, yes... Pawno looking to build upon increasing his award total to TWO! Looking to add on from Mr. Most Entertaining 2009-2010.

Rob, Capt_Jack, and GSW are the only ones from last year that haven't said anything. Although I wouldn't expect Capt to participate since she only comes by every now and then. If she does, that'd be cool. And Pawno is our only new member to this, so please welcome the man who calls himself... PAWNO6124FF171. :mrgreen:

That goes without saying. If you haven't joined by the time the playoff start, you can't join after that.

Yep, it's gonna be tough, as most games are really close and can go either way, particularly with some guys pretty banged up.

Ok, let's go:

Bengals over Jets (4): I refuse to pick a team with such an horrendous passing game to win a playoff game on the road, no matter how great their D is. The Bengals D is pretty good as well... and the Bengals will pound the pigskin with Benson as much as possible. Expect an ugly game, but this is probably the Bengals best chance at a playoff win in decades.

Packers over Cards (3): Everybody is injured in Arizona, Rolle, Rodgers-Cromartie, Campbell, Lutui, Boldin... Most of them, if not all, will play, but it's never a good sign to have half of your starters doubtful for the game. Also, the Packers are peaking at the right time, and while I don't think it's gonna be as easy as last week, I can't see a reason why Green Bay shouldn't win this one as well.

Pats over Ravens (2): I think it's gonna be closer than most people expect, and I'm actually rooting for the Ravens... but I also think the Pats will find a way to win it in the final drive.

Eagles over Cowboys (1): I'm not confident at all in this pick, but Philly usually plays much better after a humbling defeat, and repeating against Dallas has to be a motivational tool more than anything. Still, they're gonna need a BIG game by DeSean Jackson and probably to grab an early lead to win. If not, it's gonna be nearly impossible to beat the Cowboys.
