^Not quite, he'd still beat me by 1 even if I win out.

And I'm feeling pretty good about those last three picks.

Actually, now that I look at it, it's more complicated. You getting your last 3 picks correct means your Overall Record guess will be incorrect, so you can get a max of 3 more points.

Code: Select all

1. Gumchum ---- 9/16 - 56.25% - --
2. Pan Fan ---- 7/14 - 50.00% - ^1
3. Marchie ---- 7/16 - 43.75% - v1
4. Glux ------- 6/16 - 37.50% - --
5. Marilink --- 6/16 - 37.50% - --
-. Lions Fans - 6/16 - 37.50% (Marchie's Joke Picks)
If Tampa Bay wins, I'll be at 7/16 - 43.75%, if they lose I'll be at 6/16 - 37.50%, so it's safe for me to post this before they even play.

Also, no one's team has been eliminated from the Playoffs yet. With a group of teams like this... that's hard to believe. I mean seriously, Detroit, Oakland, Miami, & Tampa Bay all still in the fight after week 15? Wow.

Somehow I feel like Panfan will be OK with losing the Pick 'em if this scenario doesn't play out.

did you guys know that aaron rodgers said the packers could run the table and then they haven't lost a game since?????????? it's true!!!!!!!

did you know that aaron rodgers was once at a wedding feast where they ran out of wine so he had people get him jugs of water which he turned to wine and then went on to begin his ministry, eventually being crucified for our sins, rising again in 3 days and ascending into heaven???????

i hope aaron rodgers' **** smug face gets run through a damn table
and that's the waaaaaaaaaay the news goes
