NFL Pool Standings Week 11

Before I say anything else be reminded that Week 12 (this week) includes two Thursday Thanksgiving games so be sure to pick early.

No one had a perfect week this week again. The field did better than last week but was still middlin. Abbey, TedT and Paul all had 5-1 weeks. There was finally some significant aggregate movement due to Cowboy and Niner blowouts.

I will post the familiar and basic standings below and GGirl will follow up with her usual additional stats.

Paul 40-22 (1) +291
Hometown 40-22 (1) +205
TedT 36-26 +129
Grover 35-27 (1) +169
Tony 35-27 (1) +83

I did waaaay better this week once I stopped thinking. Maybe the rest of the world could learn a lesson from my success. :grinning: :+1:

Man. If the broncos could have only remembered to cover Davante Adams my pick of a tie might actually have happened!

I forgot that you picked a tie. First time anyone did and that got me to thinking that we need a rule for that. They are very rare, like 2-3 a year I’m guessing.

I propose that if anyone picks a tie correctly that they be rewarded with extra points. I’m thinking probably 3 wins instead of one. Maybe even 5? The pick would be a loser 95% of the time at least.

What do others think? I wouldn’t want to make a rule mid season without some consensus. If there is approval we can implement the tie option after this week.

I personally Don’t have an opinion either way.

I was using a magic eight ball.

If somebody picks a tie correctly, 2 points is sufficient. It's like getting two wins though of course 98% or more of the time it will be merely an incorrect pick.

I am out of the top five.

Aww man, :joy::sweat_smile:

I like that idea. Late in the season you can desperately try to make up points by calling a bunch of ties.

My magic eight ball is still in the shop getting fixed. I got it on sale a few years back at the Magic Store during a scratch and dent sale.

I wouldn't reward ties because no one in their right mind would ever pick one (sorry to whoever did already pick a tie, lol).

Hey, to be fair the game (Denver vs Las Vegas) went to OT! :joy: I just didn’t want to pick a winner but I also didn’t want to waste a pick, so Tie it was. :rofl:

You know, after 11 weeks I never noticed there results stats! Hard to believe, I know. But, kudos to GiG!! They're great!

And this is precisely why not to make a correct guess worth anything more than 2 points.

We have had one tie this season already, and in recent seasons they are more common because overtime is only 10 minutes not 15 like years ago and much of our lives, but they are rare.

thank you. i didn’t start posting any stats or week only results until week 6 i think after built my spreadsheet app that does all the calcs and generates the tables. basically i just input everyones’ picks and the game scores and it outputs the results and stats. :slightly_smiling_face:
