NFCS Pick Challenge (WEEK 3)

Recommended Posts

Regular Season Week # 3 Date: 9/26/2010

Week 2 results can be found here;

The 2010 NFCS Pick Em Challenge will have a grand prize available for the first time this year. The player with the best pick percentage at the end of the season will win their choice of a Premier NFL Jersey from NFL Shop ($110 -$150 value). Custom and throwbacks included. This high-quality Premier jersey by Reebok NFL Equipment features tackle twill numbers and nameplate, and screened Reebok logos on the sleeves for an official game day look!

*This is not a sponsored or affiliated contest. Just a fun, fan run challenge between the message boards of the four NFC South teams.

All are welcome! You only need 10 weeks to qualify for the prize so join the fun!


Here's how it's done. To play, working with the spread, you pick four games each week, ONLY from the list posted below. If playing that week, any individual games not picked will be considered a loss. All games with NFCS teams are included, except Thursday/Friday games. The spread will come from FootballLocks.com once all NFCS numbers are known. All initial point spreads that end in a WHOLE number will have .5 added by the moderator and will be included in the numbers you see posted below, so there can be no ties.

There is also a TIEBREAKER to determine the weekly Champ and it will always be GROSS passing yards for team selected from NFCS. If not entered, the moderator will enter zero.


To avoid any possible misunderstandings, when posting your entries, enter ONLY the CORRECT LAST NAMES (as shown) of the four teams you selected and the NUMBER for the tiebreaker. Please do not repost the entire moderators entry or any other extraneous data or comments. It just slows down everything.

PLEASE DO NOT POST ON MULTIPLE BOARDS WITH THE SAME SCREEN NAME. The program has only 1 city code attached to your name.

Except for byes and when a NFCS team is playing each other, the first choice for selections will be NFCS teams. Otherwise, the moderator will select other games played on a SUNDAY, as need be, to make it four games. To be in the running for the seasonal Champ, you need to have played at least half the games to date. To win the overall title, you need to have played ten weeks (40 games) and must have also played one of the final two weeks. (Can start as late as week 8 if you play all the remaining games.) The seasonal Champion is determined by best picking PERCENTAGE, NOT by the most number of wins. Anyone can win the weekly Champ if you play 4 games in any given week!

When picking the tie breaker it will the one closest. If one is over and one is under, the tie goes to the player under. Example: If the passing yards number is 250. If someone picks 251 and someone else picks 249, the one with 249 wins.

Deadlines for entering is Noon each Sunday for games that week for all players. However, if there is an NFCS game on Saturday, the cutoff is NOON SATURDAY. Posts or changes after those times will not be considered. EXCEPTION: The liaison, a PR member for the other 3 NFCS teams, will post their players picks after their cutoff. It will take time to retype and post on our board.

The week number posted in this thread is the actual NFL week number and the date is the Sunday for that week's games.

If you post more than once and don't delete any multiple posts, your original post will be used. If you have changes, PLS delete your original post and resubmit as a new post and indicate its a REVISION. The moderator does not go back and review any prior posts for possible changes after it has already been posted to the worksheet, which is done every couple of hours.

Reports: There are two reports:

1. Current weeks results, which includes naming the weekly Champ and a listing of all who played that week.

2.YTD. It lists all who have played and their percentages. It also shows only those who have qualified to date (have played half the games) and their percentages. Also indicates those who still have a chance to qualify. Last report of the season lists all who played for the year.


(1) If you change your screen name on during the course of any year's tournament, you must identify your original screen name in every subsequent post. Otherwise all records for that year will be split under the different names.

Most of all, have fun and enjoy!

Steelers -2.5 @ Bucs +2.5

Just following your lead brother. You guys have treated me really well here as have the other teams, but it is kind of odd that I have made some friends on all these icky rival boards! I feel dirty...lol :D
