Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....

Hey, anyone feel like telling me that there was a confidence point this year? I did the BEST at 12-3 in predicting but got 0 points.

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....

Um, there has always been confidence points in the one I was doing. At least for like the past 4-5 years.

I'm not playing this year, but yes we had confidence points in the past.

Edit: Deftones added them starting in 2014

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....

I definitely remember confidence rankings from before.

Doesn't the page tell you your picks are incomplete if you don't set those?

I'm going to assume that had Decker set confidence points, the 3 he missed would have had the three highest confidence points set, so I'd still be in first place.

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....

They did have confidence points a few years ago, but didn't the past two years.
It probably did say my picks were incomplete but they always say that because I never pick the tiebreaker score shit they ask for every week.

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....

Absolutely not. I honestly believe Philly is going to destroy the Cards. They are always terrible going to East to play, and the Cards shouldn't even be a .500 team this year.

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....

I was thinking of picking them anyway, but thanks for the reassurance. I guess I have a higher opinion of the Cards than I should.

Re: NFL Survivor and Pick 'Em leagues....

I tend to agree, though Raiders > Ravens is a strong 2nd choice for me.

Raiders are 0-2 when Carr hasn't started for them (last year) and EJ Manuel is 0-6 in his last 6 starts. I'd stay, far, far away from that game, imho.

As a Seahawks fan, I'm happy not to have won like that!

Thanks for the reassurance on that pick. I had a friend mocking me saying it was a guaranteed elimination for me while advising I pick the Rams. That made this Sunday extra fun for me.

Damn Denver.

Congrats lwhy?
They picked Houston all others picked Denver.
I had Atlanta at first but change to Denver at last minute.Does not really matter as both teams lost today.
