It doesn't count in the official statistics, but this COFP turned the Seahawks into a Sure Thing™ Pick. Sorry, Seattle.

The Secretary of the Interior called an emergency meeting this weekend where, in addition to agreeing to replace the carpeting and kitchen cabinets, the Week 17 award was discussed and altered to better capture the essence of the FSP contest.

Further, the application of the week 17 award towards the Perfect Weekly Record was liberalized.

Perfect Weekly Record: If you should manage a perfect weekly record, you will receive DOUBLE the scheduled weekly award (this wouldn't apply to the non-negative award of week 16 nor to week 17) and you'll get that week named after you in perpetuity.
Additionally, we have upgraded the concession stand and gift shop and are also offering 10% of your zappos purchase.

Congratulations to 3rookie for winning the Week 16 award, AStudent's GroupThink: No thinking necessary - if you win this award, your record for Week 17 will be the better of Your Picks or that of the (preseason) Consensus.

Additionally, he has won the "Change One Future Pick" award. The use of this award may be declared at anytime before the kickoff of the game it affects. It expires at kickoff of the final game of the season.

Finally, an additional award or two:

Pat on the Back™ award:
Way to go, A695814. You wisely chose to use your COFP awards to change your Browns pick to the Ravens & your Rams pick to the 49ers. You picked up two extra wins! Nice job!

Way to go, twig93. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Browns pick to the Ravens. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Way to go, 3rookie. You wisely chose to use your COFP awards to change your Browns pick to the Ravens & your Bears pick to the Chiefs. You picked up two extra wins! Nice job!

Way to go, Ultimate Anyone?. You wisely chose to use your COFP awards to change your Browns pick to the Ravens & your Rams pick to the 49ers. You picked up two extra wins! Nice job!

Way to go, Funemployed. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Browns pick to the Ravens. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Salvage™ award: Whattayaknow, twig93. You're guaranteed to have bungled the The Arbitrary Award by changing your Steelers picks, but this week earned you an extra win. At least it hasn't been a complete disaster.

Salt in Your Wounds™ award:
Way to go, MayanActuary. You bungled your COFP award by using it to change your Cardinals pick to the Seahawks. You picked up an extra loss! Nice job!

Way to go, twig93. You bungled your The Arbitrary Award by changing your Steelers picks. You ended up with two extra wins but three extra losses! Nice job!

pH7 award™:

The pH7 award™ award goes to silentassassin. He used his Mob Insurance award on his Week 16 picks. None of his losses had an End of 3rd Quarter lead of 7+ points. Just like a solution with a pH of 7, it's neutral. Also, this award kind of sucks. The competition committee will look into enhancing it this off-season.

Here are the week 16 standings:

Here's one last look at PAM®

Funemployed and Jahiegel (2.5 GB) differ in four games this week:
Buccaneers vs Falcons
Giants vs Eagles
Panthers vs Saints
Bengals vs Browns

Funemployed and rekrap (4.5 GB) differ in seven games this week:
Bills vs Jets
Buccaneers vs Falcons
Giants vs Eagles
Panthers vs Saints
Bengals vs Browns
Jaguars vs Colts
Vikings vs Bears

The rest of you are playing for pride and momentum going into the off-season.

As always, note that this analysis does not take into account the effect of any awards declared or yet-to-be-declared.

The intern is away on diversity training but hopes to note this change before final results are released.
