2013 NFL Predictions Game


Recommended Posts

As I was just reminded by paul carruthers that we haven't set up the game this year, here 'tis.

The rules are simple:

1. Someone will post the NFL games for the week. Everyone will predict who will win the games before kickoff.

2. Late entries are accepted in the event you miss Thursday night football, the noon games or even afternoon games. Only the games you predicted before kickoff count.

3. Anyone can join at any time during the season. Since the best way to count is by percentage to account for missed picks and weeks only people who participate for the majority of the season (at least 9 weeks) will be counted at the end of the year.

4. When the results are posted at the end of the week everyone is responsible for double checking their own score. We had a lot of errors last year no matter who was doing the tally. It happens, that's why we double check each other.

5. Anyone can post the weeks results. I tried to do it all last year and it became a way bigger pain than it was worth.

6. Scoring is as follows: Guessed Right-Guessed Wrong-Team Tied. So if I guessed ten games correct, five wrong and one game tied (regardless of who I picked) my score for the week would be 10-5-1.

Well, unless something screwy really happens, I think I'll make my picks now. Nobody would be foolish enough to play their starters in the final preseason games & risk an injury, nobody except Rex Ryan maybe, lol.

Denver (Denver is my pick to go to the Super Bowl from the AFC, and I expect no one from their secondary will fall down & give up a 70 yard bomb)
New England (Sorry Rick)
Cincinnati (Could be the Bears, but I'm going with the hot pick from the AFC North)
Miami (Ungh, the Dolphins)
Atlanta
Tampa Bay
Pittsburgh (Is the Steel Curtain back? I guess we'll find out)
Minnesota
Indianapolis
Seattle
Kansas City (Chiefs better win this one, DAS :D )
St. Louis
Green Bay (My other Super Bowl pick, the Packers. I'm trusting their defensive woes will be corrected this year, but this pick could bite me in the ass.)
Dallas
Washington
Houston
Well, that's it. I wonder how I will do, I got off to a pretty sluggish start last year. Hope the new season will be different. :bubble:

Wow. You have balls making the picks already. I have to learn a few things first. Like the the hell our QB will be? and injuries? Lots of tough games to begin with. I am surprised by the Green Bay pick over the 49ers on the road. I am not convinced Cincy is so big and bad as they are saying. Like Prisco picking them to win it all. I think I will pick Chicago to beat them at home and I know I am taking the Lions.

Judging by some of the picks, people are buying stock in the Chargers, hmmm. The Chargers to me might be the Cowboys of the AFC, they will always find a way to disappoint you. And yes, I know I picked Dallas to win. Just a hunch, I believe the Cowpokes may be a playoff team this year.

Do we have the word out to the players? Seems like we have alot more members who will want to play so we must try and get the word out by tomorrow. So we should keep bumping the thread or maybe ask the mods to pin it for 24 hours? What say you Paul? And was there not another football thread? I thought we were doing one against the spread?

I'll get the NFLZ Sportsbook thread rolling later today.

Well, we still have 1 more day before the season kicks off. I think some of the players like to wait until the last day to post their picks.

Rick,most topics are pinned about Zep. Keep bumping it up so we came see your earnings and/or losses. :peace:

I understand its a Zepp first site. But we talk about alot of other things also and I do not think its asking too much for it to be pinned for 24 hrs. I only asked for 24 hours. But maybe they did not see it? Or just dont have time? I just wanted as many of the former participating members to have a chance to play. You understand that dont you Mr Boston?

Rick,my guess is that sites like these do NOT have a 24/7/365 presence.

I don't live in Boston.Stay classy Rick.
