If anyone is interested I created a Pick'em group for this year's season. It's a non-spread pick group. Sort of like an office pool.
Best of all its FREE and there's prizes. PRIZES (http://games.espn.go.com/pigskin/story?pageName=pigskin\prizes)

Lets make this the largest Steelers group over there. :tt02::tt02::tt02:

http://games.espn.go.com/pigskin/group?entryID=27059&groupID=3477

If that doesn't work or you can't find it try this link. Search, private then type in Steelers Fever. You may have to create an entry first, after that find the group and hit join this group on the group page.

http://games.espn.go.com/pigskin/groupfind?entryID=27059

The group name is "Steelers Fever"
Password " fever "

xfl2001fan
08-23-2008, 12:03 PM
I'll check again, but when I went to join this morning, it said it was locked.

************ADDITION***********

I'm in now as Frambaugh...but it did give the status as locked (under the "Locking Rules" heading).

MACH1
08-23-2008, 12:17 PM
Locked means that during the season if you have more than one entry in other groups. That if your sucking on picks you can't switch out entry's with the better one. I just thought it would help keep it honest, unlike a certain team we know*.

But I guess I should ask if we want it locked or unlocked before the season starts.

I vote locked.

xfl2001fan
08-23-2008, 12:19 PM
Right on...I'm not involved in any other Pick'Em (at least on ESPN I'm not.) We have an office Pick'Em that I placed second in last season (picked 67% correct though).


I could care less whether it's locked or now...your show, I'll play by your rules.

Ok, I made my picks. Almost forgot to do it in time for the thurday game. I struggled with the Rat Birds vs the Bungles and ther Bucs vs the Saints games. I think I changed them both at least twice.

Nearly forgot to make my picks too. Tried to make them at work...but that's a negative.

In your entry settings theres an option to have an e-mail sent every week for a reminder.

Is anyone else having trouble editing picks? I try to go to the correct page and it won't let me. :mad:

Hopefully it works before gametime on Thursday....

09-03-2008, 06:49 PM
I don't know, I rarely second guess myself. Over the last two years, I've tracked what I would have gotten had I allowed a change...and the record isn't nearly as good as my initial impression.

:doh: No, nothing like that. :flap: Some people wait for NFL Matchup to come on TV. Some people wait for Vegas lines to get through some last second updates. I go to other websites. I just hadn't checked them out before I made my picks. Figured it was best to get them in early, as this contest is about total wins, not win %.

GutterflowerSteel
09-13-2008, 08:54 AM
I don't make my picks until after the injury reports come out :helmet:
I also make picks on the www.Sirius.com/nfl site.

09-13-2008, 11:18 AM
Alright, Last call to make picks. HTG that means YOU. :laughing:

Check them again before the games. When they moved the Texans game to monday they may have unchecked your pick for that game.

I picked SF to beat the Seahawks and they did....

Then I realized that it said I didn't pick ANYONE when I looked.

09-15-2008, 06:03 AM
Damn, I got 9 right so far, but the 4 I changed after looking over all the stats and such gave me losses. If I had changed nothing, I think I would have lost 1 that I changed and won 4 of them.

And yes, I picked Cleveland to win. This was before I had another reminder of how crappy Crennel is at time management.

Aussie_steeler
09-15-2008, 07:14 AM
Interesting question time - One team is definitely going to go 4-12 at best.

So who are you going to refuse to pick to win a game this year so that you can get your guaranteed 12 wins?

Mine - St Louis

At least I am consistent. Ten wins each week (so far). The bad news is that to get my 11th win this week, I have to have the "Cowpies" win. :doh: This is why I hate gambling.:wink02:

I pick my games on gut feeling, and don't make adjustments. I also don't check back until the games are all complete...but I KNOW I ain't sittin' at 96% after this week!

This keeps getting tougher. I make my picks by Thursday usually and don't change them unless something big comes out. I think too much info is counter productive.

On a whim I am picking the Browns to beat the Ravens. No reason just a feeling.

I messed around and didnt get my picks made in week 2 until right before the monday night game, but I have came back with a 10 with tonights game coming up. But its all good if the Chargers can pull one out for me that gives me 11 on the week... not too bad..

That sucks the entries aren't saving. There should be a way to make sure your picks are saved. As for the game itself, I'm doing better than I usually do in these things. It is good that there are 10 posters within three points of the top so it is anybodies game as the saying goes. I starting to feel some upsets this week (not a good sign for me because that usually means I start losing y sences :laughing: ).

Who has 98%? I really want to know...

I see there are actually a few people in the whole ESPN thing that are 100%. But only a few...I can pretty much guarantee it's a few chicks somewhere who pick solely on the teams colors or whether or not they like the mascots names. Dumb luck.

But it makes me mad that people are that accurate...it CAN'T be based on football knowledge because there have already been 10 major unpredictable upsets...

MACH1
10-16-2008, 07:15 PM
Its certainly not me in the 98% range.

I've screwed the pooch the last two weeks.

I have an ex-gf that had stupid luck when it came to picking games. Since she referred to them like, horse shoe heads, donkey heads, ect.

GutterflowerSteel
10-16-2008, 07:16 PM
Well, I'm a chick who picks based on how the teams are playing, injuries, etc. and I've been stuck in 2nd place for the last 2 weeks at 97.5 :wink02: I picked a few upsets though - Miami over Chargers AND Pats, Washington over Dallas, and Buffalo over Jags :tt03:

I'm stuck, too :wink02: There are so many variables to consider: Trent Edwards' return, with possible lingering effects from his concussion (I think he'll be ready to rock), the Chargers traveling across 3 time zones and the Bills coming off their bye - LT vs a banged up secondary - Marshawn Lynch always averages 90 yards at home, and the Chargers' D misses Merriman ...I'm kinda leaning towards the Bills, too ... but I haven't made my final picks yet.

I decided to go with the Bills. My only concern was Trent Edward's concussion effects...if he hadn't had one, I wouldn't have even thought about it. The Chargers have a very overrated secondary, and the nod on defense goes to the Bills.

All the "experts" seem to be picking San Diego though.

I was actually rooting for the Broncos and not for my pick.:wink02:

I picked the Pats because I thought they would beat the more pathetic Broncos at home. As much as I want the Pats to lose, even without Brady, they are at the wildcard team level, imo.

I didn't even look at next weeks yet. I usually make them on Thursday's. That way I don't over think them- which makes my head hurt.:doh:

But, now we're tied....this week is the tiebreaker... :popcorn:

May the best man win! (or maybe both lose #1 :chuckle: )

Mach, for your impertinance you will go over and sit in the corner and repeat "why, why, why, did I pick the turds" one hundred times as your punishment. If you do that ever again, I will have the principle speak to your father. You may begin.... Class, please turn to page.....

I took the Pittsburgh West. Although I have a feeling, I am not changing my pick.

This is turning into a NASCAR Race. While we battle for first place, the people behind us are outscoring us and closing fast. :toofunny:

No, I didn't forget. The phone lines to the neighborhood were accidentally cut by a construction crew at 6:00 PM yesterday, right before I was gonna log on and make my picks. :dang:

So all I had left was to hope against hope that your pick would be wrong. :chuckle:


Three-way tie between me, you and Aussie.... could be a big shakeup at the top. :popcorn:

Don't worry those of us who have been leading are falling back quickly.:doh:

You could be winning in a few weeks.

So now begs the question...what happens in case of a tie? Does everyone get it right or wrong?

Wonder if ESPN was prepared for this. :popcorn:

Not a great week with 11, but not a bad one either. This is going down to the wire where someone could have a great last week, like NCSteeler did this week, and win it at the end.

BTW, congrats NCSteeler 13 is pretty impressive given that we all lost on the Eagles/bungles game.

Congratz NC and OFTT. The Bills lost, so I'm not in the tie for first anymore.

Slipped into third...shouldn't I be in second? :noidea: :chuckle:


I'm preparing for a bounce-back slaughter next week in which Steelman will be the sole owner of first place. :cool:

Wanted to thank everyone for the contest. Nobody is more surprised I won than me. You can probably chalk the victory up to my conservative approach. I took very few upsets over the season and was lucky enough to win on the few I did. Well, thanks again and hopefully we can do it again next year.

We'll all have to do this again next year.

The last couple weeks I dropped like a stone, I was trying to pick some upsets and make up a few games. Didn't work out to well. :chuckle:
