2016 NFL Discussion/ Pick'em Thread

Post by glux » Sun May 22, 2016 9:46 am

I want to start by calling myself dumb.
I never really thought of where exactly the Jacksonville Jaguars reside... Only just today realized Florida has 3 NFL teams...

Speaking of NFL in Florida, 2017 Pro Bowl will be Orlando. How exciting?


EDIT: I know Jacksonville is in Florida, it just never dawned on me that Florida has 3 NFL teams.

Is there even anywhere in Orlando to play the Pro Bowl? I don't know off the top of my head what stadium is there. Hawaii sounds much more fun...

Apparently it being in Hawaii is a big reason why a lot of players even agree to go in the first place.
Camping World Stadium aka the Citrus Bowl.
Also, I guess it's a multi-year deal? And it's moving back to the NFC vs AFC format.

Probably because there's not an adequate stadium in Vegas.

Ladies and gentlemen! It's time for VGF's 3rd annual NFL CHALLENGE!

Congratulations to last year's Champion: Yates

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!!
7. $20 Amazon Gift Card to Winner!
-----7a. Should the team you pick WIN the Superbowl, you will get a Championship hat for you team courtesy of Yours Truly!


Best part? I do all the work!
ANY QUESTIONS??
Good.

LET'S GO, SUCKAS!

Can I pick the Packers to lose every game?

I'll do the Raiders this year. Change it up.
