    NFL Pick 'em playoffs here also?

    Cam started another NFL pick 'em with the playoff games. I'm in the process of finding out the details from him and hopefully we can get others here to join. He has a template on the other site and I hope he will post one here.

    So Cam, if you're listening, can we also do it here and will you post the template? I pm'd you some questions about what we need to post to participate.

    Thanks!

    Cindy

    Pretty simple, just pick the winner of each game from the Wild Card through the Superbowl.

    -3 Points per Wild Card pick
    -5 Points per Divisional pick
    -7 Points per NFC/AFC Champion
    -10 Points for Superbowl Champion


    Include scores for each game, Superbowl MVP, and # of touchdowns scored and interceptions recorded in the Superbowl for tie breakers.

    Thanks! My 80 year old informants are working on their picks and I'll have "our team's" picks posted by Friday night. I don't know what I'll entertain them with after the season. I told them they needed to find a few more sports.

    I suggested basketball because I love the game. But trying to sway diehard Saints fans to get another sports love is like trying to get them to move out of that soupbowl to higher ground. Their answer: "it's a Nar'lins thang!" Sadly, I understand. Thanks for the suggestion though. I think they're just planning on going back to meddling and complaining about the relatives until next season. Hey, it's a hobby.

    They can join me and get into Hornets' basketball.

    Here's my choices................ I'm a tad nervous because my 2 informants had different wild card team wins which messed up the whole works. I told one of them that if the other was right, we were going to hear "I told you so" until next season's games.

    Thanks again, Cam!

    I am miffed that the Bengals lost - I actually missed the game altogether. True story.

    I thought the game was Sunday at 4pm.....so, I turned on Cincinnati's famous WLW radio and heard them talking as if the game was over. I thought it had just started! Nobody said anything about the score, just that things didn't go right....halftime?

    I then go to the Internetz and got the bad news. There was surprisingly very little mentioned about the game, and was later told by fellow fans that I did not miss anything.

    I was further brought into depression with the Notre Dame-Alabama game. Being a die hard Irish fan in Cincinnati is also taboo since Brian Kelly was the coach of Univ. of Cincinnati before Notre Dame.

    That was awful! Man, I'll bet you were kicking yourself. But yeah, the Texans got a head of steam.

    I play the pick em's game with two ladies from New Orleans. One is 80 years old (my mother) and one is 88 (her neighbor whom I call "aunt") We've been working as a team this whole season with the picks and scores.

    The 88 year old wanted the Bengals to win and had them going all the way up. She's a real die-hard fan.

    We had to pick the scores and she said to pick low. But she didn't tell us why to pick low. We were so used to the Saints doing well offensively, but our sucky defense letting the other teams get high points, that we forgot that the good teams have great defenses - hence low scores. So even though I went with the Texans on that game our scores will not be getting any points with the pick ems. Both my mother and I told her she was NOT a team player. She was supposed to tell us why to pick low scores.

    This was the same lady who cheated me out of a dollar on the Christmas holidays. She knew the Saints weren't in the playoffs as she read it in her paper that day. Because my mother doesn't have a computer, I didn't know. I said to her, "I'll bet the Saints will get the wild card." She said "Ok, let's bet. How much you want to bet?" So I bet a dollar. Then that afternoon when I read the paper I saw that we did not get in the playoffs and realized she knew the outcome BEFORE she bet. What a swindler!!

    But it's been fun to play with these two ladies. The 88 year old is home bound due to having lung problems and is not doing well. I just hope she's around for next season's football season. This pick ems game has given her a reason to hang on. She worked on the picks all week.

    I really thank Cam for doing this. His game here and on the other site was a godsend for those two ladies. My mom would bring her lunch on a Tuesday and they would spend hours picking and debating teams.

    The funniest moment was when I saw all the guys had picked one team and the ladies picked a different one. I asked them what they based their pick on. My mother said she picked teams on the attitude of the quarterback (and whether they were a diva or not) and the 88 year old one said she picked them on their hairstyle. What??!!

    I knew I wasn't going to win any pick em's trophies at that point. :-) But it was fun. They're watching every game, hoping we do well with the team wins. So far we got 3 out of 4. No points for scoring though. We would if SOMEBODY would have been a team player. But oh well. :-)

    Ironman, are you interested in any of the teams playing this week? I really think the Patriots will go all the way although I really like the Falcons also. It's going to be a good game. There's some really strong teams in contention. (although sorry about your Bengals). Hey, us Saints fans are just looking forward to next season also.

    As a Saints fan, I don't want anything good happening to the Falcons.

    49ers win by 50.

    How's the pick ems results coming, Cam?

    I know.............me and the ladies are winning, right?

    If you've already been posting results of the contest so far anywhere else, please post them here also.

    Or do you want to keep us guessing who's in the lead?

    You know I have those two ladies bugging me about our standings compared to the guys.
