Just a heads-up, I'll be starting the 2014-15 playoff thread sometime tomorrow night--once the Bengals/Steelers game has been decided and all the playoff brackets are set. So get ready....

It is all over but the shouting. Doesn't matter what happens in the afternoon games...there is no way anybody can catch jb126 now. Sooooo....

CONGRATULATIONS TO jb126!!!! :cheer:

Winner for the second year in a row...she's kicking our arses, fellas! Brett "pottedplant" would be proud...and her Saints won their last game of the season to end on an up-note.

Final numbers and tallies to come later.

Drum rollllll....

:cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

Hooray for jb126! Winner for the second consecutive year and winner of the inaugural PottedPlant Memorial NFL Pool. ebk and Strider won the final week with 13-3 records.

Winner of the "Little Engine That Could" award is zepscoda, who although in last place for most of the season, kept plugging along and never gave up...and lo and behold, he passed LedZeppfan77 in the last week to rise out of last place. Which means LedZeppfan77 gets the "penthouse to the cellar" award for going from first place in Week 1 to the bottom in Week 17.

Everyone won at least one week during the season...yes, even you mack! I forgot to credit you with a weekly win when you tied with Anjin-san in Week 5 at 13-2. The top 4 finishers of the season all won at least 4 weeks. Anjin-san was tops with 5 weeks won. jabe, mack, and paul carruthers were the singular week winners.

zepscoda had both the best and the worst weekly record of the entire pool...a season high 14-2 record in Week 15 and a season-low 3-13 in Week 2. Only two participants managed to avoid any sub-.500 weeks the entire season: jb126 and mack. The best week of the pool was Week 15, when we were all a collective 152-56. The worst week was Week 2, with a dismal 95-113 total.

jb126 and Strider tied for the most weeks with double-digit wins (10 or more), with 12 weeks each. LedZeppfan77 had the fewest weeks of 10 or more wins...only 4 weeks.

ebk: 13-3*

We usually get around 10 people or so to play every year. Sadly, there'll be one less this year.

 

I know Paul, Walter, Rick, jb, Bong-Man, redrum, jabe, zepscoda, KB?, and I will be back as usual this year. Anybody know Kansas City fan DAS whereabouts? Wonder if Black Dawg will ever return?

 

I know there must be dozens if not hundreds of NFL fans lurking on this Forum. Come on, people, join the NFL pool! It's free...it's easy...it's harmless fun. Test your knowledge and luck versus the so-called media experts. My record has been better than the LA Times NFL prognosticator three years running.

 

You don't have to try to pick the spread..just pick the team each week that you think will win. Picks must be in before each week's slate of games begins. So, since the first week of the season begins next Thursday, try to get them in before kickoff. Or, at least Thursday's games in...then post the rest of your week's picks by Saturday night.

 

Let's try to get this NFL pool up to 20 participants at least. The more the merrier. :D

I did not realize Black Dawg was gone.  I cannot pick the Saints every week as much as I loved the guy
