Sorry for being late on this but I forgot all about us doing this last year.

It's just for fun and here's a link to last years thread.

http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=119414


Let's have a little fun and see who can pick the most correct through the playoffs.

I'll keep track of the standings for anyone that has posted their picks no later than 4:30pm EST on 01/08/11. (Due to me being late in getting this started if you don't see the post until after a game has started, you may take a 0 for the game or games played or in progress but can still pick the rest.)

Any edits made after this time will make your picks void.

Picks for all four weekend games will be locked in at this time.

We will be using the Sloate Scoring System again this year.

1 point for each wild card game
2 points for the conference semi-finals
3 points for the conference finals
5 points for the Super Bowl.

2010 Champ - Rawn Hill 18 points

Rob- I'm at a loss with the Jets. One week they look like Superbowl contenders, the next they look like a lottery team. I never know what to expect with them. Today I think they might fall a little short.

If they get pressure on Manning and don't turn the ball over they will win. The Jets are too talented on offense not to put up points on that Indy D. Plus of course I am a little biased with my pick...I just can't go against them.

Congrats Rob!

Had a bunch of Jet fan friends over to watch the game, and the range of emotions during the 4th quarter was nauseating. From Santonio dropping an easy 1st down conversion and then us getting a break when Indy made a bonehead special teams play running into the kicker. Then Peyton driving down the field and watching who has to be the best big game kicker in NFL history kick a 50 yarder with ease. Then with Brad Smith not at full strength Cromartie gives great field position and then the most stomach turning moment was watching Folk prepare to kick the game winning FG with our season on the line. What a night!!

Nice Jim, go join MADD and leave football alone or just try to stay on topic. Edited to add that I see you have no picks in for the FUN game here, so exactly why do you think it is your mandate to voice your opinion? I see a few nice photos from our members that have temperence connections, go buy a few and post them. I do have an OUI as they are called here in Maine. The former idiot that owned the Rangers and was elected to some political office as I recall had one here also. ADD is a made up excuse for what we used to call being an A**hole, try to stay on topic.

Thanks Johnny! I know, I haven't seen Brady that rattled in a long time. The Jets certainly do have big mouths but they backed it up Sunday. Both games have the potential to be classics.

The only realistic tie that could occur would be between Rob and Phil, and if they choose different teams then no tie is possible. Another remote possibility is if Tim picks the correct team, and everyone ahead of him is incorrect. Then we would have a three way tie.

I can still win the tournament if Phil, Rob, and Rawn all pick the same team. Then if I pick the other team, and my team wins, I win the tournament. If the three players ahead of me choose some combination of both teams, I am eliminated before the game starts.

Not sure how the Pack can be favorites after the way they played last week but the Jets looked great against the Pats so I guess they think the Pack might show up for the superbowl but if they play like they did on sunday the Steelers will destroy them. I hate the Pack so much it hurts to see them in the big show but for the division I guess wouldn't be bad if they won. The only real question left for me is will the Lions climb out of the cellar and be replaced by the Vikings , my guess is yes as bad as this year was next year gonna be even worse. So just so Brett Farve has to feel the pain I hope the Pack wins and Brett Farve can go to hell.

The Packers did not play that poorly last week. It certainly wasn't their best game this season (or post-season), but they never trailed in the game. As a matter of fact, the Packers have never trailed by more than 7 points at ANY TIME, IN ANY GAME this season. That's pretty amazing.

Also, I think you have to look at the fact that they went on the road to Philly in Week 1 of the playoffs and beat a QB that many thought had a chance to win the MVP this year.

Then, they went on the road again to the #1 seed Atlanta Falcons and beat them up in their own house where Matt Ryan had a 19-1 record at home prior to the game vs. the Packers.

Then, they went on the road again and beat the Bears and never trailed at all during the game.

On the other hand, the Steelers have actually had 2 sloppy playoff wins this year (both at home). Got way behind to Baltimore in game 1 and then had to hold off a near record 2nd half collapse at home vs. NYJ.

There, that's why the Packers are favorites.

P.S. I feel better now.
