So let's do a full-season pick-'em as well. I'll get the spreadsheet going, modeled after Glux's creation from last year, and if he wants to take it over, he can.

Either way, let's roll. Paging @Gumchum ,@glux , @Auron , @March @Calamity Panfan , @CaptHayfever , and...uh, idk, @Swordmaster Link @smol Kat @VG_Addict @Random User ?

Here are the rules from last year's thread:
How does it work? Simple.
1. Pick a team, any team [size]as long as it's part of the National Football League.[/size]
2. Check your team's Season Schedule
3. Take a guess (educated or otherwise) as to what your team's overall record will be. (Hint: There will always be a total of 16 games.)
4. Take a guess (educated or otherwise) as to what your team's division record will be. (Hint: There will always be a total of 6 games.)
5. Game-by-Game pick whether your team will win or lose each game. (These don't HAVE to match the record you picked, but it's usually easier if it does.)
6. Post it all here, or message them to me, and I will add them into a spreadsheet and update it weekly for all to see.
-----6a. You have until Kickoff of Week 1 to finish your picks!!
I'm going to change the deadline to Sunday, though. If you end up getting your picks in after the Pats/Chiefs Thursday game, just take the L. Latecomers are welcome, too.

Since I'm assuming Panfan and Glux will take the Lions, I'm gonna pick a different team. I've decided that since I'm in D.C. this year, I might as well do a pick 'em for Washington.

Week 1 - vs Eagles - WIN
Week 2 - @ Rams - WIN
Week 3 - vs Raiders - LOSS
Week 4 - @ Chiefs - LOSS
Week 5 - BYE
Week 6 - vs 49ers - WIN
Week 7 - @ Eagles - LOSS
Week 8 - vs Cowboys - LOSS
Week 9 - @ Seahawks - LOSS
Week 10 - vs Vikings - WIN
Week 11 - @ Saints - WIN
Week 12 - vs Giants - WIN
Week 13 - @ Cowboys - LOSS
Week 14 - @ Chargers - WIN
Week 15 - vs Cardinals - LOSS
Week 16 - vs Broncos - WIN
Week 17 - @ Giants - LOSS

Record - 8-8
Division - 2-4

I see WAS being 3rd in the division, but only because the Giants and Cowboys are probably going to do really well this year.

Edit: HERE IS THE SPREADSHEET. I kept most of the formatting from Glux's sheet last year, but I'm gonna try to make each person's team colors more incorporated into their box. Because...I want to. Wins = Dark background with light text, Losses = Light background with dark text, using team colors.

I filled in Dylan and Panfan with Dolphins and Lions, but if you guys want to change teams, be my guest.

10-6 record with a win in Week 17 against the Packers...

As far as the weekly pick 'em goes, I think it would just be easier for me to strike any picks for the Dolphins-Bucs game and re-pick come Week 11. That way would be a lot easier than for me to go back and try to find everyone's pick for that game. Everyone cool with that?

Here's my full season picks for the Dolphins:
WEEK 2: W @ Chargers
WEEK 3: W @ Jets
WEEK 4: L vs. Saints
WEEK 5: W vs. Titans
WEEK 6: L @ Falcons
WEEK 7: W vs. Jets
WEEK 8: W @ Ravens
WEEK 9: L vs. Raiders
WEEK 10: L @ Panthers
WEEK 11: W vs. Buccaneers
WEEK 12: L @ Patriots
WEEK 13: W vs. Broncos
WEEK 14: L vs. Patriots
WEEK 15: W @ Bills
WEEK 16: L @ Chiefs
WEEK 17: W vs. Bills

2017 RECORD: 9-7

Nice, HotD! Glad to have you with us. Looks like you got the right schedule, even if the dates are all Australian. ;)

That Buccs/Phins idea sounds good to me, Dylan.

I'm planning to post something today yet. I hope you're all ready for my pessimistic view of the Lions this year.

All right, here we go:

Week 1
Patriots
Cardinals
Falcons
Bengals
Texans
Bills
Titans
Washington
Steelers
Rams
Panthers
Seahawks
Cowboys
Saints
Broncos

Now, as for the Lions....

vs Cardinals - LOSS 0-1 (0-0)
at Giants - LOSS 0-2 (0-0)
vs Falcons - LOSS 0-3 (0-0)
at Vikings - LOSS 0-4 (0-1)
vs Panthers - WIN 1-4 (0-1)
at Saints - LOSS 1-5 (0-1)
vs Steelers - LOSS 1-6 (0-1)
at Packers - LOSS 1-7 (0-2)
vs Browns - WIN 2-7 (0-2)
at Bears - WIN 3-7 (1-2)
vs Vikings - WIN 4-7 (2-2)
at Ravens - LOSS 4-8 (2-2)
at Buccaneers - LOSS 4-9 (2-2)
vs Bears - WIN 5-9 (3-2)
at Bengals - WIN 6-9 (3-2)
vs Packers - LOSS 6-10 (3-3)

This schedule is tough. I could have easily gone 4-12. Not sure why I have no confidence.

the thing about the lions last year and now likely this year is that that defense is bad enough that they could easily lose just about any game they play, but stafford has been balling out so much that most games he could at least put them in position to win

I have no idea why I've been tagged in an NFL thread.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

^I tagged random people just to see if they would be interested at all.

Spreadsheet updated for HotD and March. Plenty of room for Glux and more.
