My NFL picks for the 2007 SuperBowl

We’re nearing the end of this year’s NFL pool.

Last week: I went 0-2.

Playoffs overall: 6-4, good for 60%.

Next week: a complete round-up, with charts and graphs!

My SuperBowl pick:
CHI vs IND: Chicago

My NFL picks for playoffs round 3

So we’ve made it through 2 rounds of playoffs, and I just found out that I’m hopelessly behind in my pool. I’m 10 points behind my brother-in-law at this stage, and with only 3 games left in the playoffs, I’ll only make up 6 of the 10 points needed for victory even if I get the final 3 picks correct.

Congrats to my brother-in-law, Joe! Here are my anti-climactic picks for this week:

Last week: I went 3-1.

Playoffs overall: 6-2, good for 75%.

Here are my picks for this week:
NO at CHI – Sorry Rex and Co, I’m taking New Orleans
NE at IND – I think Indy will probably win- they have to, sometime- but I don’t pick against the Pats. At least not until they start having a string of losing seasons ;)…so I’m sticking with New England.

My NFL picks for playoffs round 2

Here we are at playoffs, week 2! Last week saw some great games, particularly Seattle over Dallas and of course, my New England Patriots defeating the Jets. I like Pennington, so it’s a tiny bit of a shame to see him lose…so let’s hope he finds a home with a team that doesn’t choke against the Pats so consistently.

This week has some classic match-ups in store as well. New England at San Diego stands out, as does Indianapolis at Baltimore. I’m taking Indy, and calling it an upset, since I think the whole world expects Peyton to get shaken and stirred by Balt’s defense.

Last week: I went 3-1.

Playoffs overall: 3-1, good for 75%.

Here are my picks for this week:

Ind at Bal — Ind
Phi at NO — NO
Sea at Chi — Sea
NE at SD — NE

My NFL picks for playoffs round 1

My NFL pool has wrapped up its regular season. I finished a strong 10-6 in the final week, but have yet to hear if that record was enough to give me my second weekly victory of the season.

So for the regular season, I finished at 131-113, good for 54%. Again, I haven’t heard how the regular season overall standings finished up, but I’ll post them as soon as I hear.

Now, on to the playoffs. In our pool, we count each regular season victory for 1 point, totaling the points once at the end of the regular season. But our pool doesn’t end there. For the playoffs, each correct pick is equal to 2 points, meaning people who didn’t finish at the top of the regular season standings still have a chance to play catch-up by making great picks for the playoffs.

So for round 1 of the NFL playoffs, here are my picks:

Ind at KC — Ind
Sea at Dal — Dal
NYJ at NE — NE
Phi at NYG — Phi

Here we are again- it’s time for this week’s NFL Pool wrap-up and preview.

Last week: 7-9

Summary:This past week was a four-way tie between all four of the participants in the pool. So technically, I haven’t lost for two straight weeks now following my win in week 13.

My picks for NFL week 14

Here we are again- it’s time for this week’s NFL Pool wrap-up and preview.

Last week: 10-6

Summary: Yellow! For the first time in 13 tries, I won the pool last week with a 10-6 record, a tie for my best performance yet (and that was week 1). Although the final tally is not in yet, I have also gained a number of games in the overall season standings in the past few weeks. So as you can see by this handy graphic, after a few bleak weeks, things are looking up.

Yay, I'm a winner! Yay!

My picks for NFL week 13

Here we are again- it’s time for this week’s NFL Pool wrap-up and preview.

Last week: 7-9

Summary: Like most NFL teams, I hover between mediocre (but losing) and average (but winning) each week. 2 weeks ago it was 9-7, last week it was 7-9, and if it weren’t for a couple strong weeks at the beginning, I’m not sure I’d be above .500 at this point. The good news is, I went with my gut and took Cincy to defeat Baltimore last night, and they did just that, in a pretty exciting game. So I’m 1-0, and it’s not even Sunday yet!
