The first thread was to see if there was an interest in doing a deathmatch, pool, or both and I'm guessing that was where you and a few others posted your picks. This and the Pool thread are the contest threads. :)

^^ That was an unofficial explanation, Hookem would be the man to ask to get the official skinny.

Bolded picks win. Hmmm, all the away teams. We'll see how well that works for me. Based on my pick 'em placing, probably not so well.

pickin' all the home teams.

With the NFL format the way it is that theory doesn't always apply in the opening week, especially this year. Next week is when I start thinking that way.

I just jinxed 3/4 of my picks this week. :(

wasn't using a "theory" or anything, i just expect all the home teams to win.

picked the Cards because of their home record vs. Falcons road record, and a rookie QB. picked the Chargers because they've played better than just about anyone the last month, home-field advantage, and a better QB. picked the Vikings mainly because i don't trust the Eagles whatsoever and Peterson running the ball at home. picked Miami because there's no chance i'll ever pick against them in the playoffs

2-0 so far

I think Double Barrel was the only one to pick The Cards and Chargers!

I have to cheer for Philadelphia & Miami tomorrow. I thought the Falcons had the best chance of winning out of all my picks. I'll be sick if they're my only pick that loses :headhurts:

Wow, that was a massacre and it was only the first day. Congrats DB and Kastofsna for being the only ones to survive the first day.

I guess if no one survives the first round then we don't have a winner. In that case everyone is back in and we start over again next round.

Either way it'll end today, so might as well plan on a new one next week.

You should have posted those here so you could have made it in. If both DB and Kastofsna lose today then we are going to open it up again after today.
