    Football Scoring Contest - Week 17

    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) Here's all you have to know about men and women: women are crazy,   men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid.
     
    Games for Week 17http://www.nfl.com/schedules/2013/REG17     No Thursday or Monday football - The Modern Dark Ages

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

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ApTac4mgdC6ldHJMYUZ0eUdlbnA1b01DRHE1WEdROGc&usp=sharing

    Top points (54) for the week came from the Eagles.   Only irishfanatic had Philadelphia.   Even more impressive, irishfanatic set a record for points in back to back weeks (56 + 54).  That has enabled him to vault into a playoff position (as of now) with just a week to go.  Four others (AyyyBoston, LuvsThosePats, ghostofjri37, and Quagmire3) took the Bengals and were rewarded with 42 points.   AyyyBoston is now only 35 points away from last year's record total of 540 points.  And AyyyBoston has accomplished this in one less week (there was no Bye Week last year). AyyyBoston (there's that name again) has the lead for a 7th consecutive week and has the inside track on the #1 pick for the playoffs.   All players who have not already taken a BYE will be given one this week since it is the last week of the regular season.

    There will be one more, final thread next week for Playoff Seeding/Selections and Point Scoring.

    Re: Football Scoring Contest - Week 17

    Saints at home is really hard to pass up....but the Bears D is just sooo bad.  Give me the Pack with the division on the line in Chi-town for the win in a shoot out, as I try to hang on to my playoff hopes by a fingernail.  At least this year I remembered to pick teams all the way through because I dropped the ball big time at the end of the year last season...doh!!!

     

    Thank You NYJ for all your time and effort in keeping this thang going for us all amidst a disasterous year for your squad.  It's been real and I will certainly be back next year if we do this again.  Happy Holidays everyone!!!!

    Good to see some players scraping the bottom of the barrel in Week 17.

    As for me, the triumphant return of Aaron Rodgers will lead to NFL records for points scored, and propel me to the playoffs!    To infinity and beyond!

     

    or maybe not :(

    I'll admit it, Cyber had me going for a while.  Then I remembered I had this old Esper machine in the attic like the one Harrison Ford used in Blade Runner:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkcU0gwZUdg

    I had to play with all four pictures for a while before I noticed the male cardinal atop the flagpole over the back of the horse on the right (more like a colt, I'd say) in the first picture.

    Here it is after zooming in on the coordinates:
