Default HawaiiThreads NFL Pick'em!

I figure this will probably attract an even less-enthusiastic crowd than the rapidly-decreasing-in-popularity Hawaii Threads Trivia Game, but Manoasurfer123 and I both want to play, so if nobody else wants to jump in, it's totally fine. We'll be happy playing with ourselves. Or something like that.

There are a couple of nice prizes up for this one, too (donated by anonymous HTers who might or might not play), and you don't even have to know anything about football to play.

Each week, before the NFL games, I'll post the matchups. All you have to do is pick your winners, posting them as replies to this post. People who know little about the NFL will probably do best in the early weeks; there are surprises EVERY year, and the bozos who think they know football are always that last to buy-in on a come-from-nowhere team that makes the playoffs!

There are two ways to score: Either pick the most winners in a given week, or pick the most winners over the course of the season. At the end of the season, the winners will be the person who had the highest number of winning weeks and the person who had the overall cumulative highest number of winning picks.

Just pick your winners and you'll figure it out as we go along. And as I said: Manoa and I are totally happy just playing with ourselves, but it is more fun if others get on. Or something like that.

This week's matchups in the next post.


oh yeah, I almost forgot. The Monday Night game will be the weekly tie-breaker, so each week, post a predicted final score for that game only. For all the other games, just pick a winner. I'll go first, so you can see what I mean.

Are you ready for some football?

Here are the matchups for Week 1!

Miami Dolphins at Pittsburgh Steelers
Baltimore Ravens at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers
Denver Broncos at St. Louis Rams
Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots
Philadelphia Eagles at Houston Texans
New Orleans Saints at Cleveland Browns
Seattle Seahawks at Detroit Lions
NY Jets at Tennessee Titans
Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs
Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers
Dallas Cowboys at Jacksonville Jaguars
San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals
Indianapolis Colts at NY Giants
Minnesota Vikings at Washington Redskins



Monday Night Game:
San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders

The season actually begins with the Dolphins and Steelers on Thursday night, but we won't count that one. If you get that pick right or wrong, you'll still get one point. Freebie.

Let's make the deadline 6:00 on Sunday morning.

Oh, let's do booby-prizes for the person who loses the most weeks and for the person who picks the most losers over the course of the season.

Pat fans up this way are missing him big time...they aren't just yet sold on the Gostkowski kid from Memphis. Oh, BTW...the kicker's name: Adam Vinatieri..in my view the greatest clutch kicker, in any conditions, any weather, of all time!

I'll have my picks in by 6AM HST...I don't make my picks up until the last second...you never know who is going on injured lists!

Denver Broncos at St. Louis Rams
Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots
Philadelphia Eagles at Houston Texans
New Orleans Saints at Cleveland Browns
Seattle Seahawks at Detroit Lions
NY Jets at Tennessee Titans

Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers
Dallas Cowboys at Jacksonville Jaguars
San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals
Indianapolis Colts at NY Giants
Minnesota Vikings at Washington Redskins

Monday Night Game:

Indy got rid of that likkered-up kicker (Mike Vanderjagt, "the NFL's most accurate kicker"), and went with Vinatieri, who's now got a bum plant (leff) ankle. Das why I say they no mo kickah.

You are right, though, about the injury list. It might be good to wait, but I figgered my picks are pretty solid . . . well, mostly solid.

Raider fan all my life. They used to practice in my hometown when they moved to LA. Got a lot of "sneaking into bars and partying with Raiders" stories from 18-20 years old.

I used to fly up to watch the Raiders play in the Kingdome. What a dump that was. Then drive up to BC for a couple of days. Those were fun trips too.
