Predict the NFC South Week 9

Recommended Posts

A special thanks to the cards for losing to the panthers and helping me get back in this thing.

On to business:

For those picking in the north the Chi/AZ game counts for 2 and the TB/GB game will go into this week and the week you missed.

Anyone who falls more than 3 weeks behind or anyone who has used all of their allowances and misses an additional week will be removed from the elgible list.

Please make your picks clear. Don't just quote someone else's pick and agree because it might get missed. If you change your mind before the deadline edit your first set of picks do not add a second set.

All picks due by Friday 12pm (EST) This is the second week in a row where picks were made after the deadline. They are ignored. I suggest that everyone make their picks early in the week and then edit them if you change your mind. You have a 50/50 shot of being right but you have no shot if you have made no picks at all.

DISCLAIMER:

This contest and prize are being provided by me personally and none of it is affiliated with the Falcons organization or the NFL in any way.

Game Rules and Prize Information:

1. All picks have to be posted before the established deadline. Picks made after will be ignored.

2. This is a message board so allowances have to be made for missing weeks. You can miss up to 3 weeks (if there is time left in the season) but you must make picks in the NFC North for every week you miss so that by the end of the season you have made picks for 17 weeks.

3. The final score or how close the score was doesn't matter.

4. The results of previous weeks will be posted as soon as I have time to tally them.

5. During Bye weeks 1 or both games will count for double. If it is a single team bye week I will notify you which game counts for double at the beginning of the week for both the south and the north.

6. Division games always count for double points.

7. The prize will be awarded at the end of the season or as soon as a tie breaker can settle the outcome.

8. If you get permanently banned you cannot re-enter the contest under a new name. No exceptions.

9. If you win you will need to PM me your email address so you can receive the online certificate. I suggest that you NOT use a work email address because it coming directly from the NFL Shop and it might get caught in your company's spam filter. If you have home spam protection you will need to make sure the email can get through or set up a hotmail account. If you have any doubts whether or not the email can come through I strongly suggest setting up an account with one of the reputable free email services. I would HATE if I spent the money and no one got to enjoy the prize. However, if it gets caught or rejected I will not be responsible if you cannot collect your prize.

What are you playing for?

Up to $150 (if you answered the bonus questions)

FAQ:

How can you be sure no one will edit their post before you tally the scores?

I prefer to think that everyone will be honest however I do print the thread after the deadline to lock in the results.

How can someone catch up if there are less than 4 games in the North? Explain the scoring system.

To keep it simple there are 4 possible points each week regardless of how many games are played. In a divisional game you have the opportunity of getting 2 right or 2 wrong. Division games can be the hardest ones to predict so there is some method to this madness. Besides, anything else would require a really elaborate system and let's face it, it is only a $75 prize.

What happens if you (Finally) wins?

If I win I will be an insufferable gloat intent on proclaiming to anyone who will listen how I won and you all are miserable losers. I will give a whole new dimension to the term bad winner. However, I do intend to give out a prize so the runner-up (least of the losers) will collect the prize.

Link to last week's thread:

Please let me know if I have made any mistakes.

If you have a (#) by your name you have used up that number of NFC north allowances.

If you have a (#wk) by your name you need to make up that many weeks by picking in the NFC north. Remember you are only allowed 3 total missed weeks for the season.

If you have a (DQ) by your name you have missed too many weeks and are inelgible for the prize.

DQs will show up for one week only then they will be dropped from the list.

Not to sound nitpickedty ( if thats even a word) or anything Finally, I love that you're doing this for everyone, but I think some tallying at the top isn't right. Now Correct me if i'm wrong or not, but I went back and looked at the picks and both mcwheesus and NoMoreVick both picked the saints and cards to win.. So techincally wouldn't they be at 24 and tied with me and shonuff, instead of both of them at 25 points?

Again appreciate all you do :D

I will check. Last week was one of the harder ones to tally because so many people picked that were not players and 2 people changed their name which threw me for a moment too.

They each has 23 and were awarded 2 for picking the Saints. Each week counts for 4 points no matter what. The division game was 2, and the Cards/Panthers game was 2.

If anyone can think of a better way to handle missed weeks for next year I would love to entertain it because even though this system makes it slightly easier for me it makes it more confusing for everyone else. The problem is that the week you miss might have 4 games played but the next week there may be only 3 played in the north to pick. By counting all weeks as 4 I don't have to spend a lot of time on it. We must allow people to miss weeks though. Anything can happen from a vacation to just simply forgetting.

Falcons over Washington

Saints over Panthers

Green Bay over Tampa Bay

Green bay over Tampa bay

Chicago over Arizona

Seattle over Detroit

Don't know how you want to handle Minn having a bye and GB playing a NFCSouth team, whatever you do is fine by me, including having me use another week's games.

Thanks

Falconidae.
