As suggested by Pawno, I think having the playoff predictions contest through confidence voting is a fun idea. Description on what Confidence voting is below.

Confidence Points are used to give a different weight to each game in a given week. You'll assign a point value (from 1 to 15 if there are 15 games, 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 15, you'd get 15 points for a correct pick, but no points if Dallas wins. You don't lose points for an incorrect selection.

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.


With the playoffs, we will rank 1-4 (again 4 being most confident, 1 least) the winners (for the first 2 weeks). Rank in descending order from confidence to least confidence as the rank correlates to the points values. If you get them all right you will receive 10 points. Lets say you only get one game right, your number 3. confident. Therefore you will receive 3 points. If you get a game wrong, you don't lose points, so u can't go in the negative.

The first 2 weeks are going to be out of 10 points (wild card and divisional championship weeks) as mentioned above. The conference championships are worth 7 points (ranking 4 for most and 3 from the least confidence, as we have to take account the previous weeks numbers). The Superbowl is gonna receive 4 points for the correct pick, and 3 points for the one who is closest to the final score in total points, with over/under limits not a factor. I do this, so someone ahead after the superbowl doesn't pick the same team as the closest competitor, just to win by default. These scores submitted by everyone in the superbowl will also count as a tiebreaker if it comes down to this. SO i will get more into this when the time comes.

Questions or Suggestions lemme know. Still confused, learn by example by seeing my picks for the first round in the following post.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STANDINGS

PAWNO: 6 + 7+ 7 = 20 points
Mr. Crackerz: 5 + 5+ 7 = 17 points
JREED: 4 + 8+ 3 = 15 points
Guybrush: 3 + 8+ 0 = 11 points
Hobbes: 7 + 0+ 4 = 11 points
Warriorsstepup: 6 + 0+ 3 = 9 points

4. 9ers over Saints
3. Patriots over Broncos
2. Packers over Giants
1. Ravens over Texans

2 reasons for 49ers over Saints being that high - I can't pick against em and I doubt anyone else is going to pick that game that high and I need to dig out of 2nd to last place.

4. Patriots over Broncos (Tebow will have a terrible game. Blowout).
3.Saints over Niners (can't see brees losing. Game should be close).
2.Packers over Giants (this game will be close)
1. Ravens over Texans (Texans will be better than last week, but it will not be enough).
