    Football Scoring Contest - Week 12

    Rules:

    (1) Pick one NFL team each week
    (2) You can not pick the same team twice (similar to survivor/knockout)
    (3) You receive the number of points equal to what your team scored
    (4) Your selection must be logged before kickoff of the game you choose
    (5) The Regular Season winner is the person with the most points at the end of the 16-game season
     6) Every participant will select one BYE week.  You can choose any week you want.  You don't need to select that week in advance. If you fail to make a selection by Kickoff time and you have not used your BYE week, then you will automatically get a BYE for that week.
     7) Playoffs:  The top 12 participants by points at the end of the regular season will make the playoffs. Then, those 12 people will pick the one real playoff team whose playoff points they want.  The regular season winner picks first, the second place finisher picks second and so on. The 12th place finisher is stuck with the last team not chosen.  Regular season points do not count toward playoff totals. In case of a tie, the playoff champion will be the team that advances the furthest.
    8) If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.
     
    Games for Week 12: (note there is a Thursday game this week - Saints @ Falcons)

    Registered Players, Standings and Used Picks:  (be sure to check here for teams you have already used)

    Three teams provided tied for the most points this week (41):  the Seahawks, Bengals, and Bucs.   Both ghostofjri37 and LuvsThosePats took the Seahawks.   No one had the Bengals or Bucs.  For that matter, no one took the Bills (37) or Steelers (37).  Many took the Eagles despite my warnings.  I know that the Eagles were probably a smart choice "on paper" but once you saw that I took the Eagles you should have reevaluated your selection.    AyyyBoston has the lead for a 2nd consecutive week.  AyyyBoston is also the leader of game players who have taken a BYE.  He's probably already looking ahead to the playoffs.

    OK.  I feel guilty about picking the Eagles last week and then watching a half-dozen others do the same thing.  Now maybe they all reached the decision to pick the Eagles on their own.   But looking at my horrible record should have caused them to pause and reconsider.

    I can't have a repeat this week.  I need some sleep and I can't sleep with all this guilt.  So, I think I'm safe in making this pick without it being discovered by any other player.   Unless of course they have an Enigma Machine in their attic or have a cousin that's a Navajo Code Talker.

    24 points is not a disaster NYJ?    they were a touchdown away from my weekly goal of 31 points? I consider anything under 21 points a horrible week

    Nice!   I think I've got it.

    Pic1 :  I knew it was a NYC scene.  Got stuck thinking the guy was Paul Newman (it's not).  Looked more like a movie than a play, but I kept thinking of West Side Story as a play, since that's not Natalie Wood from the movie.  I finally saw a poster that matched your pic.  And the original production starred Carol Lawrence.   So, that sure sounds like the Carolina Panthers before going any further.

    Pic2:  Master deception with the babe.   I think the focus is supposed to be on the In Line skates.

    Pic3:  Kevin Kolb.  U. Houston.   Not sure how this fits.

    Pic4:  Pan pizza.

    Pic5:  WWII radio operator from some movie?

    Maybe someone can help with Pics 3 and 5.

    I'm pretty sure it all adds up to Carolina Panthers

    Awesome!  Well done nyjoseph.  Not sure how good/bad it was but hopefully it stumped you for at least a few minutes.

     

    Picture 1 = yes, Carol Lawrence

    Picture 2 = Good thinking.  In Line skates is correct.  Was hopping to throw off with the the hot jennifer nicole lee, the beats head phones, music player or the drink.

    Picture 3 = Kevin Kolb with his helmet decal UH.

    Picture 4 = Correct.  Pan pizza

    Picture 5 = Scene from the movie "Theirs Is The Glory"

    Carol Line UH Pan Theirs = Carolina Panthers

    It was great.  I had the In Line skates first actually.   Struggled with Pic 1 in my head for a long time.  I didn't make progress until I convinced myself to give up on the "Paul Newman" connection (that didn't exist).

    Pics 3/5 make it perfect!   Well done!

    Digger?   I assumed this was a pick for the Saints, but that's Brees on the ground having a very bad day.  You picked the Saints in Week 10.  I'm confused.   Please help.

    Sorry about picking Carolina twice.  I'll take the Giants then.  I'm SURE I haven't taken them yet.  The pickins are starting to get slim.  BTW I did figure out the Panthers photo spread, specifically the inline skates, the UH, and the pan pizza.  Pretty silly, but fun!
