1 equals 1st, 4 equal 4th. If you successfully get that correct at season end then your awarded a point for the position they finish in there division...

SUPERBOWL:

all picks must be submitted before the season starts, If you don't have the time to work on a preseason Crystal ball comp then never fret... Your welcomed to join our Regular season NFL PICKUM comp.. :)

Once that Thursday Night Game between the Saints & Vykings kick off... I will be locking the predictions into a READ ONLY spreadsheet on google spreadsheet & you can go back thru the season and have all the data available for your eyes and see our close the race is between you all..

Below is a link for peoples submissions. I'll have them all entered by season kick off & then the s/sheet will become locked. You can edit your standings or predictions at any time you feel like, allthough we will be checking that no alterations have happened to your actual post as the time/date stamp of your original post will be what is gospel.

Excellent job Panwo. I like the name too. Just the clarify - we aren't doing records and we are only picking the winners of the post season games?

And just to add that the winners of the two games will get costume sigs - I know "big deal woohoo!" but at the time it's all we can offer.

Yeah only season division standings, no need to pick the team records otherwise that's like splitting a Bee's dick with a Meatcleaver (fricking Messy Peoples)

Even predicting the Playoff matches is difficult (cause you have to go back and think about who won the division and who meets who in the playoff matches... It's 2 straight points for correctly picking the teams in the Wildcard weekend etc... If you don't get any teams in the playoff then bad luck your out of the running for the points, But if your fan favorites & darkhorses continue to advance through the playoff stage then you will be awarded points far into the end of season tally.. These points won't be added onto your NFL PICKUM Tally but rather a preseason comp and will break down the data on Superbowl Monday Hangover :P

When I write it out like this New Orleans is the only team that make sense winning the NFC, match up by match up, but my gut tells me they wont get back to the SB - I just can't figure it being anyone else... Don't worry that statement doesn't even make sense to me :-k

I reserve the right to make changes to my CBC predictions prior to season kickoff. :?
