This is the last week of the Choose Your Own Adventure award
Ach! I would’ve won this week if I hadn’t switched awards...

Ah, what might have been. On the bright side, I had typed out a post to use a COFP to switch the Chargers to the Packers and had a last minute change of heart in the milliseconds before I hit “submit”. Then I considered switching the Ravens to the Patriots, so at least I got those two games right.

Congratulations to silentassassin for winning the Week 9 award, Choose Your Own Adventure Award -- You get to choose one award from a selection of two non-negative awards and a higher-variance, possibly-negative award:
  • Jables' Home Field Advantage
  • Random Poster's Lucky 7
  • The Arbitrary Award: If you use this award you may flip your pick for all non-Divisional games for one team for the rest of the season.
The default option will be JHFA applied to silentassassin's week 17 picks. He may reject this choice and make his own before TNF's kickoff.

Additionally, he and bluecup129 have 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, twig93, Ultimate Anyone?, & rekrap. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Cardinals pick to the 49ers. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Way to go, Kid Rock. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Giants pick to the Cowboys. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Salt in Your Wounds™ award:
Way to go, Funemployed. You bungled your two COFP awards by using them to change your Chargers pick to the Packers and your Chiefs pick to the Vikings. You picked up two extra losses! Nice job!

Not Looking Too Good So Far™ award:
Way to go, twig93. You chose to use the The Arbitrary Award on the Steelers...changing your Steelers pick to the Colts this week. You picked up an extra loss! We'll see how it all shakes out, but, in the meantime, Nice job!

Time for another look at PAM (the Predictive Analytics Machine):

jesusislord and Funemployed (GB=1) differ in the following games this week:
Chargers, Raiders
Cardinals, Buccaneers
Vikings, Cowboys

KS6392 (GB=3) can leap into the lead if the Bengals defeat the Ravens, the Titans defeat the Chiefs, the Buccaneers defeat the Cardinals, and the Steelers defeat the Rams.

rekrap (GB=4) can tie for first place but still be behind Funemployed & jesusislord via tiebreaker if the Buccaneers defeat the Cardinals, the Steelers defeat the Rams, the Cowboys defeat the Vikings, & the Seahawks defeat the 49ers.

Woohoo!

I'll start by using my newly minted COFP on the Ravens instead of Bengals for week 10.

Going to research my picks a bit more to see if the Arbitrary Award will be worth it. I'll post for sure by TNF kick off.
