The 2015-2016 NFL Football Pool

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone and Welcome to the 2015-2016 PTV Official NFL Football Pool!!

 

The pool shall be simple. Each week, I will post the list of the teams playing.

 

All you have to do is pick which team you think will win. That's it!

 

The deadline for the picks is basically right before the Thursday game (or first game of the week) airs. If you don't get that pick in, then you lose points for that game, but then just need to get your picks in before Sunday's games.

 

When the playoffs roll around, I'll post a playoff bracket. Everyone picks who they think will win and the points will go up for each subsequent round, until the SuperBowl itself.

 

Every week, I’ll also post the leader board, showing how each person is doing.

 

So what does the highest scoring final winner get in the end? Total Bragging rights, PTV Members bowing at your feet and a chance to get redemption against last years winner - ExplainItAgain, who consistently killed us all in the pool last year. Everyone else? A great competition that's a lot of fun for everyone!

"PTV Members bowing at your feet..." ?  No way, no how, did I ever do any such thing to ExplainItAgain last year. And, it won't happen this year either!

Wow...is it that time already?!?!?  I'm still watching baseball (although I have no idea why).  

 

Yeah, I'm blaming baseball for my picks to start the season.  We'll see what I can come up with after baseball is over... :-)

WEEK 1

Thursday September 10th
Pittsburgh Steelers @ New England Patriots   Pats.   The Pats are pissed and the NFL doubling down today did not help.

Sunday September 13th
Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears   Pack.    I want to say McCarthy is wrong, but he's not.
Kansas City Chiefs @ Houston Texans   Chiefs
Cleveland Browns @ New York Jets    The bwahahahahahahaha game of the week.    Browns
Indianapolis Colts @ Buffalo Bills    Colts
Miami Dolphins @ Washington Redskins    Dolphins.   Only thing interesting will be how the bad the Skins are.
Carolina Panthers @ Jacksonville Jaguars   Panthers.   Jags still don't have a QB.
Seattle Seahawks @ St. Louis Rams   Hawks, but it will be a close one.
New Orleans Saints @ Arizona Cardinals   Cards.    The Saints are in disarray.
Detroit Lions @ San Diego Chargers   Lions.
Tennessee Titans @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers   Titans.   Mariota waaay better and more mature than Winston.   
Cincinnati Bengals @ Oakland Raiders   Oh geez.   Really.   I gotta pick one?   Bengals.
Baltimore Ravens @ Denver Broncos   Ooooh tough one.    But I believe in Peyton now and for always.   Broncos.
New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys  Cowboys.   Sentimental.   But the Giants own the Cowboys in the Taj MaJones.

Monday September 14th
Philadelphia Eagles @ Atlanta Falcons   Falcons.   Chip Kelly is not an genius even or otherwise.   
Minnesota Vikings @ San Francisco 49ers   49ers.

I only voted the way I did (zero thought whatsoever) because I won a fantasy league last year and so this year will be crap no matter what. I never win anything the year after I finish first.  If I were a San Francisco Giants fan, I'd call it SFG syndrome or something like that.

 

PS @jennifer6973 - what does your cousin do for the Buccaneers?

Hey everyone.

I hope everyone comes back and more new people join in..... So yinz can all see me win. (HaHa. Actually, I just hope to do better than last season.)

Thursday September 10th

Pittsburgh Steelers @ New England Patriots

•• I know Brady is angry but we (the Steelers) are too. We have the hardest schedule this season- there MAY be times I have to pick against them. This isn't one of them.

Sunday September 13th

Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears

Kansas City Chiefs @ Houston Texans

Cleveland Browns @ New York Jets

Indianapolis Colts @ Buffalo Bills

Miami Dolphins @ Washington Redskins

Carolina Panthers @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Seattle Seahawks @ St. Louis Rams

New Orleans Saints @ Arizona Cardinals

Detroit Lions @ San Diego Chargers

••This game, Chiefs/Texans, & Ravens/Broncos

could go either way. I hope they go my way.

Tennessee Titans @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

••Am so excited to see Mariota (spell?) vs

Winston! The Bucs got a better defense but

BOTH teams were 2-14 last season so this one

is a toss up as well.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Oakland Raiders

Baltimore Ravens @ Denver Broncos

New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys

Monday September 14th

Philadelphia Eagles @ Atlanta Falcons

Minnesota Vikings @ San Francisco 49ers

GOOD LUCK everyone!!!

Ah man, you guys are back! *tears in eyes* I wasn't even going to do the pool this year (lazy, wasn't sure of interest) but EllieH and Mountainair let me know otherwise. Glad I did and welcome back all!

 

And congrats, Mountainair on your big jersey belly needing pregnant self!! Sending best wishes to you and your future football loving kid!

 

And welcome pool newbie jennifer6973!! Trust me, these guys are a great and fun bunch of people...whose butts I intend to kick this year!!

 

Oh, and LOLing over the Taj MaJones. Hilarious!

 

....................................

 

WEEK 1

 

Thursday September 10th
Pittsburgh Steelers @ New England Patriots - I wonder what cheating methods they are going to employ now? Paying off the refs? N'D Suh-ing Roethlisburger? Kidnapping the coaches. Setting the footballs in fire? Cutting off the power to the stadium...

King of Birds convinced me to join this year! (It wasn't that hard. It looked like fun last year.) So here are my predictions.

Thursday September 10th

Pittsburgh Steelers @ New England Patriots (This one physically pains me.)

Sunday September 13th

Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears

Kansas City Chiefs @ Houston Texans

Cleveland Browns @ New York Jets

Indianapolis Colts @ Buffalo Bills

Miami Dolphins @ Washington Redskins (I have a feeling that this game is going to be a root-for-the-clock scenario.)

Carolina Panthers @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Seattle Seahawks @ St. Louis Rams (Go 'Hawks!)

New Orleans Saints @ Arizona Cardinals

Detroit Lions @ San Diego Chargers

Tennessee Titans @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (This one comes down to the QBs for me and I like Mariota more.)

Cincinnati Bengals @ Oakland Raiders

Baltimore Ravens @ Denver Broncos (I kept changing my mind on this one and going back and forth but ultimately I think that the Broncos will get the win here.)

New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys (This pick also physically pains me.)

Monday September 14th

Philadelphia Eagles @ Atlanta Falcons

Minnesota Vikings @ San Francisco 49ers (sorry, KofB)

Setting fire to the footballs.   LOVE IT.    But of course, only when the Steelers have the ball, a hot football would cause the air pressure to increase  making them harder and we know Brady likes soft balls.

 

Mountainair, very much congrats.    I will have to figure out an appropriate football baby blanket.

Welcome BabyVegas to the insanity. I'd watch that King of Birds though...*grin*

 

Just wanted to give a heads up to the newcomers on how I do this pool.

 

For everyone, Ideally, I hope that they can get all of their picks in by the start of the Thursday game. At that point, I take screen shots of your posts, and that's what I work off of, so that no one changes stuff later. Also, there are time stamps for each post, but I tend not to check them (too much work!) If for some reason, you don't post anything by the start of Thursday's game, I'll still allow you to post up until the first game on Sunday. You'll miss any points for the Thursday game, but still can get in the rest. At that point, I'll do the screen shots for any posts by pool players that are PAST the Thursday deadline, but not for anyone who posted by Thursday. Simply because it would be too easy for people to make changes that might benefit them once a matchup is part-way into the actual game.

 

Hope that makes sense - basically get in your picks by Thursday. I take screen shots to ensure you're picks are recorded as you originally made them. Then I work off of the screen shots on Tuesday of the following week (when all of the games are complete). By Wednesday, I'll have the leaderboard up and the next set of matchups.

 

This is how I ran the pool last year also and worked really well!

The NFL Pool thread's motto should be "Come on in and kick King of Birds ass!" and we'd probably double the participants.  I think that's why EllieH is here too.

GUESS WHO'S BACK TO KICK YOUR ASSES AGAIN!!!

 

J/K. I'm pretty sure winning was a fluke last year.

 

The NFL Pool thread's motto should be "Come on in and kick King of Birds ass!" and we'd probably double the participants.  I think that's why EllieH is here too.

 

I know that's why I'm here. Welcome to all the new players!

 

Alright people. I started grad school this year so I'm going to try and keep up with the picks every week but my trash talk is all meaningless because I don't have as much time. That said, let's kick off week 1 and see where we go!

I'm back, baby!! I can't believe it's this time of year already, but the calendar doesn't lie. My picks will be much the same as last year, pick the teams I like; pick against the teams I don't like. It's worked with moderate success in the past. My partner is offering their advice - they pick based off of which team name sounds like it would beat the other team name. 

 

WEEK 1

Thursday September 10th
Pittsburgh Steelers @ New England Patriots - Well, damn, as a Seahawks fan, I dislike both of these teams! 

Sunday September 13th
Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears
Kansas City Chiefs @ Houston Texans
Cleveland Browns @ New York Jets
Indianapolis Colts @ Buffalo Bills
Miami Dolphins @ Washington Taters - Partner: "Dolphins beat potatoes every time. They're the smartest animal."
Carolina Panthers @ Jacksonville Jaguars - The big cat match-up!
Seattle Seahawks @ St. Louis Rams
New Orleans Saints @ Arizona Cardinals
Detroit Lions @ San Diego Chargers
Tennessee Titans @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Cincinnati Bengals @ Oakland Raiders
Baltimore Ravens @ Denver Broncos
New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys - Never going to pick the Cowboys. 

Monday September 14th
Philadelphia Eagles @ Atlanta Falcons - The bird-of-prey match-up!
Minnesota Vikings @ San Francisco 49ers

 

Best of luck, everyone!! Here's to another year!

Glad to see so many new "faces" here! I just love this time of year!

Also comical is how many of us picked the Patriots to win even though we really hope they don't! That is one pick I wouldn't mind being wrong.

Weather reports are saying 90% chance of rain at the game tonight.

I'll start this, but it is entirely possible that I will get disguted with my poor performance and drop out week six.

 

Back in the nineties, the Washington team had a weekly show featuring Sonny Jurgensen and a pre-ESPN Michael Wilbon. Every week they made their picks, Sonny always picked Washington to win. They were mediocre and and it was a coin flip as to whether they were favored, but Sonny's fond memories of the team prevented him from going against them.

 

That's a long winded way of saying, I will always pick the Steelers for the win. Starting tonight.

xaxat, I was trailing at the very bottom the entire time last season, but it's all in fun. Some people had really good weeks and jumped up significantly.

Whew, just saw this now. I'll accept this, kissedbyarose, since your post's timestamp is ~10 minutes before the 1:00 pm kickoff. Cutting it close, eh? We now officially have 25 people in the pool. Awesome.

 

Oh and do I now need to jump on the Rams bandwagon, since Foles is there. Good job, St. Louis. Only xaxat and Ownedbydogs picked them, but merylinkid was right - it was a close one.
