Thanks for signing up and looks like we are filled up at 25! I can add 5 extra spots if I need to but the deadline is Tuesday.
Count me in for one of those 5 spots

I was thinking we could get a second league going. I'm in the first one but my wife is talking about "helping" me. She could get in that one and pick the damn Niners every week like she always does for all I care...lol.

Even with duplicate members, if they are anything like me would have one team pick a little more daring than the other, etc..etc.

Thoughts?

If your selection is correct, you'll receive points equal to the confidence-point value you associated with that game.

So, if you pick Pittsburgh to beat Dallas and assign the game a confidence point value of 15, you'd get 15 points for a correct pick, but no points if Dallas wins. You don't lose points for an incorrect selection.

Each week's points will be tallied, and the player finishing with the highest total at the end of the year will be the winner of the group.

Each confidence point value may be used only once per week. So, during a 15-game week, after you have assigned 15 points to a game, your next highest available value is 14 points.
We have 3 spots left to make it to 30.

Well I was playing to give all my confidence points to the team playing against the 49ers every week as my sure fire winning recipe.

Ditto for the Falcons.

When both those teams finish 0-16 I'll be hanging the texanstalk pickem championship banner.

Alexismylove is a very fiesty 17 yr old girl who thinks shes going to kick all of our behinds. Thats her football game pickin' name.

Her strategy is to pick Eli & Peyton every week and guess on the others. She does pretty good considering all she knows is "the Manning boys are hot and Tom Brady and David Carr are ugly."

Alex refers to the singer of some band. Atreyu (sp?) is who I think he is from.

Cool, Atreyu is the name of the band that does the song Becoming the Bull.
