Default 2012 NFL Full Season Pick'em Contest

This game was started in 2009 and we now head into the 4th season of it.

2009: Won by The Arbitrary, with a record of 178-77-1, good for a .6973 winning percentage
2010: Won by trondogss, with a record of 158-98, good for a .6172 winning percentage
2011: Won by sam10gle, with a record of 167-89, good for a .6523 winning percentage

Now it's time to start it up again for the 2012 season.

The basic concept is to have a pick'em contest, where all the picks have to be made before the start of the season, as opposed to a regular week-by-week pick'em league. All of the bets would be straight up wins and losses, nothing involving the spread or any of that. There's so much parity in the NFL and teams go from being bad to good pretty easily, so I'm curious how much harder it will be to predict the games later on in the season.

The second post of this thread will have the entire 2012 NFL schedule in it, week-by-week. All you need to do to enter is quote that post let me know who you think will win each of the 256 games in the season. You can either bold all of the winners in each matchup, or delete the teams you think will lose from each matchup... Or if you want, you can completely remove all the games where you want the home team, and leave behind all the games where you want the road team. Whoever has the best predictions at the end of the season wins. After each week's games are over, I'll make a post showing everyone's weekly and year-to-date results. In case of a tie at the end of the year's standings, I'll ask that you also provide a guess at your winning percentage, much like what is used in rekrap's weekly baseball contest.

In addition, there will be rewards for the weekly winners. Whichever player (or players) compile the best record in a given week will be given a chance to improve their standing in the game. The standard reward is the ability to change one of your picks for any upcoming game remaining on the season, as long as you decide how to use the reward within the first 2 weeks after you got it. So if you have the best record in week 1, you can change your prediction for any future game, so long as you do it before the week 3 games begin. Be careful in using your rewards though, it could come back to bite you if you pick the wrong game!

That would be the standard reward for most weeks, but there are a few special rewards given out during the season. Here's a full explanation of those rewards...

Inheritance: If you win this reward, it can only be used on any one of the next 3 weeks of the games. What it will do is throw your own picks out the window and allow you to inherit the picks of a fellow competitor in the game. The catch however, is that your record for the week will be capped a 2-game improvement over what your own picks would have been. The risk involved with using this reward is that there is no limit to how much worse your record could be compared to having left your picks intact.

Single Team Reversal: If you win this reward, it is an enhanced version of the regular weekly reward. It allows you to change your predictions for one single team for all games in a block of 3 consecutive weeks. This will be awarded once during the bye weeks and once afterwards. I'll be curious to see if that changes the strategy behind using it. If used, the decision to use it must be made within 2 weeks of winning it. As with the other rewards, there is the inherent risk of choosing the wrong team to use it on and having it come back to bite you.

Home Field Advantage: They say that home field is worth roughly 3 points in determining the gambling lines. Winning this reward allows you (and only you) to add 3 points to the scores of all the road teams for a given week. As a result, it could change some losses to ties or even wins for you. For those players who went extra heavy on the home teams, I will allow this reward to be used to add 1 point to the scores of all the home teams instead (possibly changing a tie to a win, or a loss to a tie). The only real risk in using this reward is deciding whether to apply the extra points to the home teams or road teams for the week you choose to use it.


This is my plan on how to give the weekly awards:

Week 1: Change 1 future pick
Week 2: Home Field Advantage
Week 3: Change 1 future pick
Week 4: Change 1 future pick
Week 5: Single Team Reversal
Week 6: Change 1 future pick
Week 7: Inheritance
Week 8: Change 1 future pick
Week 9: Home Field Advantage
Week 10: Change 1 future pick
Week 11: Inheritance
Week 12: Change 1 future pick
Week 13: Single Team Reversal
Week 14: Change 1 future pick
Week 15: Change 1 future pick
Week 16: Change 1 future pick
Week 17: None

The season starts with Cowboys @ Giants on Wednesday, September 5th, so I'll need all entries in by then. That gives you almost a month to submit your predictions. However, if you need even more time, I'll allow entries up until the start of the Sunday games on Sept 9th, but you'd be given a loss for the Cowboys @ Giants season-opening game.

Let me know if you have any questions...

I will post the newly updated reward list after each week is over as a new post, but will also maintain a copy of it here so that it is easy to find...

Code:
Week    Reward                  Winner              Used                                                Result

Ginormous76 once put together a file where if you entered your winners in Column C, it spit out the year-end records for each team. It doesn't automatically sort the standings within each division or rank the playoff seeds, but you can figure that much out. I went ahead and updated his file for the 2012 season so you can use it if you want.

Thanks for the entries from MountainHawk and Hojo... I still need an overall predicted winning percentage from each of you (only needed in case we need to break a tie at the top of the standings at year-end)

As for the rest of you, get to signing yourselves up!
