In case you folks on LJ didn't know, this is the more-current community sibling to our old friend, nflfans. Just apply there, and enjoy happy fun times!

Of course the LJ comms aren't dead ... they're just for heavier works these days like Week in Review, and the Pick'ems.

If you want up-to-date quickshots and opinions from longtime sillypantses such as myself, you'll find me and more there, doing what previously was the main thing of this community!

Have a good one, and long live football!

Final Playoff Results

posted by: taybar19 in nflfans

Well the season has come to an end. I am sorry for not posting this sooner, but I was a little bummed the Falcons lost after having such a big lead.

Here are the ones that guessed the Superbowl correctly:
odinokivolk
favoritexrecord
oportet
jeffthelion
kittysuz
dadxer

The winner of the 5 Bonus points is njlorelei (-1 of 62)

With only 1 incorrect pick the whole playoffs, these are your winners based on correct picks: favoritexrecord and dadxer

Final Standings:
favoritexrecord = 68
dadxer = 63
kittysuz = 61
jeffthelion = 60
taybar19 = 59
oportet = 57
odinokivolk = 50
njlorelei = 50
fsfwannabe = 39
skinrcvr = 38
mmc327 = 36
marakara = 34
jhun = 34
bluecat731 = 34

Welcome to the final WIR for 2016.  This late edition brought to you by Hypertension-Induced Epistaxis, followed by a head cold.


And down the stretch they come!Collapse )

And that is it for the Week In Review 2016.  I’d like to thank everyone for checking in these 17 weeks.  I couldn’t do it without you.  Still haven’t decided whether or not there’s going to be a playoff edition.  But either way, see you here in September for WIR 2017!

Playoffs - Wild Card Weekend Picks

Jan. 3rd, 2017 | 06:47 pm
posted by: taybar19 in nflfans

Welcome to Playoff Pickem. We will be playing by the rules from the last few seasons.

RULES: There are 11 games in the postseason. 4 wild card games, 4 divisional playoff games, 2 conference championships, and ONE SUPER BOWL. So start off you are given the point values 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11. For each game, you will assign one of your point values to who you think will win. You can, obviously, only use each point value once. So if you put 11 points on a certain team, and they lose, that will suck, but not necessarily a fatal blow. At the end of the postseason, the person with the most points wins.

Wild Card Weekend Pickem
Oakland Raiders @ Houston Texans
Detroit Lions @ Seattle Seahawks
Miami Dolphins @ Pittsburgh Steelers
New York Giants @ Green Bay Packers

Bonus Point #1: Team with fewest points
Bonus Point #2: Team with most points
