I hope I assumed correctly when I think 1 is more of a confident pick than 16.

I hope I assumed correctly when I think 1 is more of a confident pick than 16.

The more confident you are in a team to win, you should lay down 16 confidence points on that game.

texanmojo
08-30-2009, 08:25 PM
Chris,

Yeah...we did confidence points last year. I like it that way...tried to get some friends to put up some diet cokes...but no takers.

gwallaia - As far as how to play...No spread involved...just pick the team to win...if you aren't too confident, lay a low confidence value on that game. If you are reallly confident on the game, lay a high confidence value on the game. You can only use a specific confidence value 1 time per week, in other words, you rank all the games 1 through 16 based on how confident you are on each game. Your score is based on the number of games you win. For each game you win, you get that number of confidence points.

The overall winner is the one who has the most points for the entire season. You can change your picks up to 5 minutes prior to the game beginning. Make sense?

Nah, I almost went wire-to-wire! You snuck in towards the end, but for the most part, it was DOMINATION!!

(Hey, every league needs a villain)

By the way - am I missing where on the pick screen, it denotes which team is home and which is away? That's kind of important...

the early weeks are always the toughest since the league is so fresh each new season. It's hard to tell who is going to be the better teams until they have played each other a few times and you can cross reference performances.

HOU-TEX
09-11-2009, 12:32 PM
I figured the game would not be that close. I think the Titans are better than I was hoping.

To be honest, and it hurts me to say this, but the past 2 season's I've thought the Titans would be average. Obviously I've been wrong, so I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt this season.

That said, I still chose the Steelers to win and even though I was hoping for a blowout, I only gave it 5 confidence points.

Did you set the tiebreaker games? Looks like the system took your other picks.

All I can do is see that people actually make their picks. I have no idea who they picked until the game starts...I think everyone else can see the same thing as me...just look under "Group Picks"

actually, i have a new strategy. i pick *AGAINST* the texans. that way, if they win, i am happy. if they lose, the sting is abated marginally because my fantasy points racked up.

Me too. But very often, even when I think they should win, I don't have the brass ones to give them a bunch of confidence points.
I never know who will show up.

I have adopted the rickyb and Hardcore strategy. I'm picking against them in hopes that my bad Karma will help them win.

I'm not going to sugar coat it. I sucked this week. No excuses. I had 15 confidence points on Green Bay, 13 on Pit, 12 on Tampa Bay, 7 for Tennessee (glad they got beat), 5 for NE, & 2 for Dallas. That's 54 points I missed out on. Inexcusable.

Those 15 confidence pts I put on the Texans are feeling pretty good right now.:glasshalffull:

I find my own lack of faith disturbing.

But its the best 8 confidence points I'll have blown all season.

I look decent thus far this week, but will probably drop like a stone in the ranks after tonight's game.

I'm showing Week 1) 121........Week 2) 88......Total 209

To answer where the "99" is I don't know

OH!: I may have posted too early, looks like the MNF game hasn't tallied yet, and with 11 and Spec doing 14, my post is bogus. You have 99 for the week as best as I can tell, but it hasen't been added to the final totals after week 2.

The Ravens over the Browns is about the only one I'll give you. That'll likely be everyone's 16-pointer this week.

Philly over KC..? I dunno. The Chefs put up 24 points on the Ravens defens... IN Baltimore. They barely lost to the Raydahs in the last two minutes. And McNabb is still out. You're probably right, the E-Gals will probably win - but I wouldn't call Philly w/o McNabb a lock.

I dunno about GB. They're as schizo as we are. They lost to the Bungles in Lambeau. They only beat the Bears because Cutler stunk it up to the tune of 4 INTs. And this is the Rams' home opener. GB probably wins, but I wouldn't call it a lock.

This could be a weird week.

I didn't go with the Lions just because I wanted to see them win one first. I had the Bengals getting beat with high confidence points for the 2nd week in a row. Only 3 people picked them to win the past two weeks. I would assume almost everyone will pick them next week against Cleveland.

And that Minnesota / GB game is a pick 'em IMHO. If Rodgers gets hot, he can torch Minn. But if A.P. gets going... look out. At the risk of agreeing with Sterling Sharpe, it's A.P. vs A.R.; Favre should be a back story.

None of us were Cincy believers. Only WideRight picked them to win and he (she?) only put one pt on it. That's not being a believer IMO. LOL. Diff was I put 12 on the Ravens and you only lost 4.

And I still can't believe that the Jags went out to Seattle and stunk it up like they did :rake:

You pretty much got every game I thought was tough down there. I wasn't laughing at the Panthers @ Bucs game being tough to pick either. I honestly don't know which team will win. They have both sucked so far this year. The Chiefs @ Skins game I put as my "1". The teams the Skins have played (besides the Giants) are 2-17 on the year, the two wins coming against them. The Ravens/Vikes is two tough defensive teams going at it. Cards @ Seahawks is probably the easiest game to pick out of the seven, having said that the team I pick is probably going to lose. Bears @ Falcons: I think both teams are for real. Broncos @ Chargers: I want to pick the Bolts, but Denver has proven me wrong too many times this year already. Giants @ Saints is two undefeated teams going at it. All of those games were tough to pick for me.

I dropped a 3 on SF winning. Houston is 2-0 when I pick against them, and 1-3 when I pick for them. I have to pick against them.

I'm really not superstitious at all. I just know that I'm 1-5 picking Texan games so far. If I'm going to suck at picking Houston games, I might as well keep picking against them. The one game I got right I had "1" in confidence points, so I've only gotten 1 point in the Texans games so far this year.

Don't forget your Thursday night pick! I just entered all my picks even though I only had to make the one but the others are subject to change. As it turned out I had all the favorites, not a good omen. :choke:

Last week I let the wife pick them all because she was hassling me about what we had. The result? A new weekly low of 41 points surpassing the previous low of 63. Next year I'll have mine and she'll have hers. :gun:

I have 4 right so far

I picked NE to beat Indy
and Balt should throttle Cleveland

but the way this week is going, I don't know

I missed the first two also. First time I've ever had a brain lapse and missed making picks since I started doing this a few years ago.

Also - uh, they have St. Louis in the "favorites" column. I'm pretty sure the Texans are favored by 13.5 points. Weird.

Now I know it looks like a brain fart, because I KNOW I should have picked SD over Tenn. but I was trying to bring Jeffy's kids some of my bad luck.
And it seems to have worked.
Some of the talking heads actually thought Tenn., behind the Healing Powers of VY, would beat SD.
Hah! Not with me putting 9 pick 'em pts on them. No way.

Saints @ Panthers - who knows which Saints team will show up.
Can Philly beat the 'Pies in JerrahLand?
Will the Vikes implode yet again??
Will the Pack sit the starters against the Cards?
Will the 'Fins rise up and beat down the Steelers at home?

Did I mention that I hate this week.
