My picks were nearly perfect for the 2018 schedule. Also I think that's where my QB-quality rankings came from.

We should fill the offseason void by having an NFL Full Season Schedule Prediction contest.

Predict the dates/times of all 256 games! Matchups are already known.

2011,190,66,74.2%
2012,182,74,71.1%

2015,206,50,80.5%
2016,214,42,83.6%
2017,220,36,85.9%
2018,222,34,86.7%
2019,216,40,84.4%
ttl,2161,655,76.7%



Of note is 2013. That's the year where the intern mis-labled the home & away teams on the entry form. All players were allowed to resubmit their entries. Only Patience did. The Arbitrary considered doing so but did not since his original picks were based off of the supposedly correctly-labeled home & away teams. You can start reading about all the fubar fun here. They ended up the season with Patience in 2nd (163.5-92.5) & The Arbitrary tied for 7th (156.5-99.5), so their records were still pretty close even though their picks weren't.
