  1. 2017 NFL Weekly Picks Contest

    With the NFL regular set to begin on Thursday night, I am pleased to announce that this year's Weekly Picks contest is now open. This is my third year running this competition, and I'm very excited to go through this again. It makes the NFL more fun. Week 1: Kansas City vs. New England Tampa Bay vs. Miami Pittsburgh vs. Cleveland NY Jets vs. Buffalo Atlanta vs. Chicago Baltimore vs. Cincinnati Arizona vs. Detroit Jacksonville vs. Houston Oakland vs. Tennessee Philadelphia vs. Washington Indianapolis vs. LA Rams Seattle vs. Green Bay Carolina vs. San Francisco NY Giants vs. Dallas New Orleans v. Minnesota LA Chargers vs. Denver -- One rules reminder: Picks for the specific games are to be in by the kickoff of those respective games. I, ever the hypocritical cynic, do believe in the honor system with this game, though. People here have lives, things get forgotten about, sometimes a game might accidentally be forgotten to be selected out of the vast Sunday swath (though I'm hoping to amend that a bit if I post the week's schedule in advance). If a game is forgotten about, you can send a DM or send me a tweet (@KramerIndustry) and, more often than not, I will be generous enough to give credit. If Cleveland is facing New England and NE wins and you forget to make that pick, then I'll logically presume NE would've been the pick and give the nod (do they even play each other this year? Who cares). All I will ask is not to abuse this, is all. For my own convenience, I do record both wins and losses, but ultimately wins is the only category that matters. -- (wtf, this is the third straight season the Giants are in Dallas to open the season. Fix the schedule generator, NFL.) EDIT - thanks @ninersdd; not sure what happened there.
  2. 2016 NFL Weekly Picks Contest

    With the NFL regular set to begin on Thursday night, I am pleased to announce that this year's Weekly Picks contest is now open. This is my second year now running this competition, and I'm very excited to go through this again. It makes the NFL more fun. Now, that being said, there is one...small? nah, not really...change that I am thinking of implementing to this year's contest. From 2008-2011, there was a different website I was a regular member of that also contested a Weekly Picks' contest, but that site specifically played the game using the point spread. You guys obviously know what I mean by that, but I'll give the visual anyway: Carolina vs. Denver (+3) If Denver wins outright, or loses by 1-2 points, any picks for Denver would get the nod. If Carolina wins by a FG, it's a push. If Carolina wins by any more than that, Carolina picks get the nod. Now, I'll post the Week 1 schedule here with the point spread in mind (point spread effective of when I post the next week's schedule, which I'll probably try to do on Tuesday morning, but I make no promises; previously, the Thursday point spread was the standard, but that was in a pre-TNF every week world, so I'm not wait on that). If you guys are interested in playing point spread this year, I'll keep it going throughout the rest of the season. If you guys would rather play the game straight up, then ignore the point spreads and I won't post them again for following weeks' schedules. I figure I'm giving enough time for opinions to be voiced. I prefer point spread, obviously, as I feel it involves more strategy in making selections. I will respect the preference of the majority of the players, however. -- NFL Week 1: Carolina at Denver Tampa Bay vs. Atlanta Minnesota vs. Tennessee Cleveland vs. Philadelphia Cincinnati vs. NY Jets Oakland vs. New Orleans San Diego vs. Kansas City Buffalo vs. Baltimore Chicago vs. Houston Green Bay vs. Jacksonville Miami vs. Seattle NY Giants vs. Dallas Detroit vs. Indianapolis New England vs. Arizona Pittsburgh vs. Washington Los Angeles vs. San Francisco -- One rules reminder: Picks for the specific games are to be in by the kickoff of those respective games.

  3. 2015 NFL Weekly Picks Contest

    Tank's on the shelf, so he's not running this show right now, but this has been a board tradition since I've been here, and I know I've either played pick 'em point spread or pick 'em straight up since 2008, so I'm not very interested in ending that run. Because of the late timing here, consider tonight's Pittsburgh/NE game a toss out. Pick it if you want, but since there will be people who don't see this thread in time, I don't want to punish them. Anyone who's connected to Tank can post the predictions that he usually files here. I'm not that person, so I'm not doing that. "You know the rules. Pick every NFL game straight up weekly results will be posted and we will have weekly and full season winners." EDIT - meh, nevermind that
