So, @2006Coltsbestever I might have AGAIN screwed myself by going with the Broncos, this is what changing my mind has done for me, cost me, AGAIN, LOL :) 

 

So, far, the differences between you and me:

 

1. Texans over Colts - +1 for me

2. Giants over Eagles - +1 for me

3. Chiefs over Chargers - +1 for me

4. Rams over 49ers - +1 for me

 

If I had kept my Raiders pick, I would have evened it out with you.

 

Now, I am 1 behind instead of being even with you. Let me know if I am right. 

@Moe tied me, interesting dilemma. I am totaling things up now. You look to be 1 game behind right now. I just noticed Easy didn't pick the Chargers/Chiefs game, that is an automatic loss.

If I had stuck with the Raiders, I would be 1 game ahead, sucks.

 

Hey, let me know what your final pick for the Bills vs Dolphins is, whatever you do, I am doing the opposite. You can't lose against me but in order for me to win, I have to pick differently than you, lol :)

I am ok with a Draw to be honest, you and Moe both have been scaring the crap for weeks Homer Simpson Laughing GIF by FOX TV

 

When it is this close, absolutely no reason to feel bad coming in 2nd or 3rd, IMO.

 

Like you said, a good deviation from the negativity.

I agree, this has been the most fun I have ever had in here. It is just fun competitiveness and keeps us thinking with our football minds. 

 

Who would have thought there would be 3 games decided by 1 point - Seahawks over Cardinals, Chiefs over Chargers, and Rams over 49ers?

 

Fun fact for you to stash away in football trivia - Carson Wentz has never lost to the 49ers as a starter, not as an Eagle, not as a Colt, and now not as a Ram. He is 2-0 as an Eagle, 1-0 as a Colt and now 1-0 as a Ram vs the 49ers. :) 

 

That was the basis for my Rams pick, lol

As of now, leaderboard through 271 games:

1. @2006Coltsbestever172-99

1. @Moe172-99

2. @chad72171-100

3. @EasyE168-103

 

Easy made 4 switches and all were losses, he didn't pick the Chiefs at Chargers game either which was a loss. Had he stayed course though, he would be 172-99 and tied for 1st at worse. I have the Bills tonight, so does Moe, Chad has the Dolphins. Worse I can do is end up in a 3-way for the Championship. I am ok with sharing it.

 

I know it is all in fun, but we all do want to win too lol. I want to emphasize it is also time consuming to make sure you get your picks in for 18 straight weeks. We all have outside stuff going, family stuff as well. For 10 people to do that all season is impressive! The strategy, switching, and gut feelings that go into this are fun and takes smarts. I just want to say I love you guys for doing this all year. 

 

Good luck Chad and to Moe = Season 4 Episode 22 GIF by The Simpsons - Homer trying to get a free Duff Beer haha .homer simpson episode 3 GIF. Congrats on sharing the Championship. 

 

I will tally everyone else's up later tonight. Hate for this to end.

Thanks @2006Coltsbestever for managing all of this. Great season of participation indeed!!!

Yeah, I don't want it to end. I see @Chrisaaron1023moved way up to this week. A lot of luck goes into this as well. I lost two 1-point games today, it allowed Moe to catch me. You would have been ahead of me had you stuck with the Raiders, that is how close this stuff is. I know @EasyEsaid a while back he had a lot going on family wise, he still hung in there and got his picks in - hats off to him. Switching did him in this week.

I have to go and look but I think I am 5-5 when it comes to switching this year. It is like going for it on 4th and 3 from the opposition's 45, it is 50/50 lmao . Sometimes it pays off and sometimes it bites you in the rear. I not only had to worry about Moe who I actually played it safe with to assure at least a tie, I was dealing with Chad and Easy as well. We had legitimately 4 people that could have won this going into the last week.

Yeah, to realize I’d have pulled off a great comeback only to undo my chances sucks but I think I’m like 3-6 switching picks. Like I said, it’s a very good group at the top.

You were awesome this week, that would have been the best comeback ever had you come back to beat me after being 4 games ahead. I was impressed when I kept looking at the scores, I was like Chad is winning every damn game (saying it jokingly/happy for you). I couldn't believe it.

This Dolphins game isn't over yet. Here comes Chad lmao 


It’s over. Tua is a bit like Herbert, not a comeback kid whatsoever, IMO, ironically from the same draft

I went 13-3 this week.. best week of the year for me to beat my record last year! 169-103

 

It's been fun guys, it always adds a bit more spice and interest in other games not Colts! I'd be willing to do a playoff pickem, separate from the regular season one of course

Yeah it's been. Unfortunate I missed the first two weeks, but I still enjoyed it.

 

Doing a playoff version is a great idea.

Let's ask for participants' interest. If many want to continue either as separate or combined with this, we shall. Otherwise, let's leave it at that. 

 

Can you quote everyone here and check it out? 

I created a new thread and quoted everyone.

    • You’re setting the bar low?    3-14 is an understatement.     Your bar is practically underground!  😜 
    • And to be fair…Garrett was also two years younger.   I mean… Garrett had 13.5 sacks in the NFL at the age Latu was a senior in college. Imagine Garrett still in college at that point.  Latu is still a great prospect, but some of these are really high expectations.
    • Massive deal. Billions of dollars to the local economies inbound from each of these events. The Rumble is my favorite night of the year, so I’m most excited for that one. There’s nothing better than a well done Rumble.    I’ve said since the day it opened that I don’t know why WWE hasn’t run WM at the stadium. Coming in the north entrance and seeing the ring down below and a full house across the way is going to be a killer camera shot.      Hopefully they open the roof for SummerSlam. 
    • Shaw did do a very poor job of recruiting his last few years which infuriated a good part of the fan base.  They were happy to see him retire early, though he left with a very generous golden parachute which made many fans even angrier.      As for the Hogan years, yes they were very good.  But not primarily due to Hogan who was a nice college level quarterback.    Hogan was supported by (A) Christian McCaffrey and (B) the most talented Stanford recruits in school history.  Including an OL with two future 1st round draft picks on it plus other very good talent.  And (C) some of the best defensive players Stanford ever recruited.   The team was as loaded as Stanford can get.  Hogan just had to be good, there was rarely pressure for him to be great.    Someday….  (If anyone is interested)   Perhaps this off-season, I’ll tell you some great Stanford Sports stories.  The school is an odd mix of strange decisions concerning football and other sports plus some decisions that are both good and infuriating.  Most days it’s easy to be a Stanford fan.  But somedays the school makes it so hard.   Harder than they need to.       
    • 3-14 mostly cause AR is still a question mark. I do like what I did see but until he proves he can make it a season, no one knows. So I’m setting bar low
