2018 NFL Pick 'Em Pool

Recommended Posts

Here we go again guys! The 2018 NFL season is one week away and it is time to get the gears in motion for our annual football picking contest. Are you ready for some football?!?

You know the drill...I post the upcoming week's schedule of games and you pick the team you think will win each game. No late picks. Once the game has started, it is too late to put your pick in for that game. 

Remember there are Thursday night games during the season. I had to chase down quite a few of you last year for your Thursday picks. Make sure you pick every game. Help each other...if you notice someone has missed a game let them know. I cannot be on here 24/7 checking everyone's picks so I may not catch your mistake in time.

Good luck to all and as always, this is all in good fun and spirit. No fighting or trolling allowed. I haven't decided what this year's prize will be for the winner.

Cannot wait to see what fanciful names jabe comes up with this season.

Here are the winners of the last five years with that season's winning record:

2017: Bong-Man, the chase, Strider tied at 175-81

2016: Junior - 171-83-2

2015: apantherfrommd - 163-93

2014: jb126 - 177-78-1

2013: jb126 - 164-91

I'm paying a lot less attention to football these days, but since I love you all so much, I'll probably make random picks every week.  That way, I'll come in last so no one else has to feel bad :D  And I don't have to miss you all!!

I feel the same, love. Thinking about having junior get his own username so we don’t have to get dragged down by the sludge...  

Thanks again Sean ✌🏼❤️🏉

Well  I assume every one is going to wait for the last week of pre season to unfold?  I know the Bills do not have their QB named yet.  Even though Peterman has the best numbers in the pre season I still would be shocked if it were him.  I think its between Allen the rookie and McCarron.  Allen makes the most sense to me.  But if things do not improve on the offensive line it could be trouble.  The defense should be able to keep them in games.  My mind is pretty much made up already.  But I am going to wait

Yes Rick, this is the last week of preseason. But then the first game of the regular season is Thursday and that creeps up fast. So I wanted to get the thread up and running to give you all time to think over the games and get your picks in.

Well now your Raiders have their backup QB.  A guy that many thought the Bills would start on opening day.  So much for that or trying to figure out anything they do.  Nobody else wants to get this started so I will.

I was just getting ready to chase you down...but I see you're on the ball. 🏈

First week is always the hardest...it's hard to judge off preseason games how a team is really going to perform.

Philadelphia

Baltimore (I'll believe in Buffalo when I see it, Rick)

Giants

New Orleans

New England

San Francisco (Jimmy it up! I hope the Vikings lose every game)

Miami (so Paul can post the Dolphin cheerleaders)

Cincinnati

Pittsburgh

Seattle

Dallas

Arizona

Green Bay

Detroit (the Lions aren't going to lose to a rookie, are they?)

Oakland (a fool's chance)

IMPORTANT ALERT!!!

I screwed up and forgot a game and mixed up Chargers with Cleveland on the Pittsburgh game.

The correct games are as follows:

Pittsburgh @ Cleveland 1:00 PM 

Kansas City @ Chargers 4:05 PM

Please adjust your picks accordingly.

Well its too late to edit my picks.   Give me Cleveland and the Chargers on the games that were left off please.  Nice to see so much support for the Bills here.  Not so much on CBS where some shit head has them  going 2-14.  No damn way.  I mean, I get the dislike of the McCarron move.  But Allen will be taking over very soon.  I just hope Peterman plays like he did in pre season.  Regardless, I love the UNDER in the Bills game.  I see a defensive battle.

Yes sir Hank, I'm ready for some football!

Strider, once again much thanks to you for undertaking the chore of dealing with the degenerate faction of the forum (me) in this annual get together.
Your efforts deserve

an air horn blast from all of us.

Atlanta - Ridley and Julio, could be nice
Baltimore - Rick, no AJ, had to go the other way.
NY Giants
Royal Orleans
New England
Minnesota
Tennessee - Derelict Henry to Roll this year?
Indy
Pittsburgh
Denver
Dallas
Arizona
Green Bay
Detroit
Oakland - AJ the new 'Snake'... one day?... doubtful
Kansas City
