Welcome to the final week of the 2010 NFL season. We have also arrived at our last pick em week. After the championship weekend, only two people remain to try to claim the almighty Pick em league champ award. Which is a hardy congrats, and the knowledge that you are better than everyone else. Time for the last few awards, there won't be but a few since there were only 3 people left to award.
The "Brees to Colston" award for awesomeness will be given to...Ponysaints! Pony and alcoholic_insight both won 1 point, so I had to give it to the person who won with the bigger underdog. Since Green Bay was only favored by 3.5 instead of 4, Pony will gallop away with the award.
The "Shovel pass for INT" will be shoveled to Friarbob. Friar has been this year's Jets, he had a bad stretch toward the end and was able to squeak by in some rounds, but he took the Jets and will leave with 3rd place under his belt.
*Note: Thanks again to Friar for helping me out during the first playoff week.
No one will win the "Pierre screen for a TD" or the "Sean Payton Challenge of the obvious" since no underdogs were chosen.
Congrats to the final two pickers, scout carefully, and good luck!
*Note3: After the Super Bowl is over, I will post a results post. This is also important because that post will also be open to ideas to better improve the Pick em league for next year. So if you have an idea that you think will improve the game, come back after the Super Bowl and let us know.
The lowest point getter in the Wildcard round. If a tie exists, the picker who picked the bigger favorite will be eliminated. (If 2 people lose the person who picks the -2 favorite will be eliminated while the picker who took a 4 point underdog will not) If a loser still cannot be determined, then the person who had the lower seed will be eliminated.-Top 5 Advance
The 2 lowest point getters in the Divisonal Round. If ties exist the pickers who picked the bigger favorite will be eliminated.-Top 3 Advance
The lowest point getter in the Championship round. If a tie exists, the picker who picked the bigger favorite will be eliminated.-Top 2 Advance
The loser during the Superbowl round will be eliminated. If both pickers lose, the picker who garnered the most points during the first 3 rounds will be the winner.-Revision: Cannot both pick same team.
