View Full Version : So This is How I did picking games this year...

12-29-2003, 04:26 AM
Yeah, I'm taking a look at how I picked NFL games on a weekly basis. On this weekly basis, this is how I predicted teams to do, so it's not like I predicted how they would do overall in one guess (In parenthesis is how the team actually finished):

Arizona Cardinals: 2-14 (4-12)
Atlanta Falcons: 5-11 (5-11) (HELL YEAH, kinda surprised I only picked them to win 5 games this year, them being one of my teams and all. Well Vick had something to do with that.)
BaltimoreRavens: 12-4 (10-6)
Buffalo Bills: 7-9 (6-10)
Carolina Panthers: 8-8 (11-5) (Ouch)
ChicagoBears: 6-10 (7-9)
Cincinnati Bengals: 5-11 (8-8) (Ouch Again)
Cleveland Browns: 4-12 (5-11)
Dallas Cowboys: 6-10 (10-6) (I guess I didn't have too much faith in Dallas, needless to say)
Denver Broncos: 8-8 (10-6) (Hmm)
Detroit Lions: 4-12 (5-11)
Green Bay Packers: 10-6 (10-6) (Phuckin' A!)
Houston Texans: 1-15 (5-11) (Yeah, I never put a whole lot of faith in new teams)
Indianapolis Colts: 11-5 (12-4)
Jacksonville Jaguars: 5-11 (5-11) (As Quagmeyer from Family Guy would say, "OH RIGHT!")
Kansas City Chiefs: 14-2 (13-3)
Miami Dolphins: 9-7 (10-6)
Minnesota Vikings: 8-8 (9-7)
New England Patriots: 10-6 (14-2) (I kinda figured to predict a worse record for these guys than they would really have since I'm not fond of the Pats, but they have my grudging respect, at least this year)
New Orleans Saints: 10-6 (8-8) (I had them winning their first 4 games, including that game against the Colts. Yeah, I was way too high on these guys in the beginning of the season.)
New YorkGiants: 7-9 (4-12) (I called this team the most overrated team in the league, and ironically, I gave them 3 more wins than they really got)
New York Jets: 10-6 (6-10) (I kept on waiting for Herm Edwards to work his late-season magic, and it never came this year. I screwed up big time with the New York teams. For a guy who hates the Giants and Jets, I gave them WAY too much credit.)
Oakland Raiders: 11-5 (4-12) (Kinda expected since they're my other favorite team. But DAMN, I was REALLY picking with my heart on the Raiders' games.)
Philadelphia Eagles: 12-4 (12-4) (Right On)
Pittsburgh Steelers: 8-8 (6-10)
San Diego Chargers: 2-14 (4-12) (I have no respect for San Diego whatsoever, didn't even respect them when they made the Super Bowl. It cost me two games this season.)
San Francisco 49ers: 6-10 (7-9) (I'm surprised I only picked them to win 6 games, hmmm. I'm glad they aren't in the playoffs this year :) )
Seattle Seahawks: 8-8 (10-6) (Yeah, I never have faith in the Seahawks. Ever. Unless they're playing some shitty team. Bad choice on my part.)
St. Louis Rams: 14-2 (12-4) (Too much faith in the Rams.)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 13-3 (7-9) (Too much faith in the defending champs. I kept on waiting for them to turn it on, and they never did...)
TennesseeTitans: 12-4 (12-4) (Yeah, baby)
Washington Redskins: 7-9 (5-11) (I picked like their first 6 games of the season correctly, and I fell off from there.)

So yeah. Looking at it like that, I'd have to say I f</>ucked up. However, picking the individual games, I got like 163 out of 256. That's not too bad, I guess. Good enough for 2nd in the TPWW pick 'em league. Here would be the playoff teams under my predictions:

St. Louis Rams
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Philadelphia Eagles
New Orleans Saints
Green Bay Packers
Minnesota Vikings (They'll get the tiebreaker over Seattle and Carolina because I picked them to beat Seattle in Week 14, which they did, and I like the Vikings more than the Panthers).

Kansas City Chiefs
Tennessee Titans
Oakland Raiders
Indianapolis Colts
Baltimore Ravens
New England Patriots (Pats get the nod over the Jets because of having a better record in reality than New York)

Looking at the playoff picture, I got 8 of the 12 playoff teams right. I guess that's decent...

Well there it is. Enjoy. I'm sure many of you would have done much better than this...

why did you use all that font? i bet it took a lot of effort and it makes me not want to read it

12-29-2003, 04:33 AM
I was in a colorful mood, but I'll change it if it is less sore for the eyes.

12-29-2003, 04:44 AM
Yeah, that must have took a lot of work.

I didn't expect the Chiefs to do so damn well, but then again I never actually check up on a team's chances of succeeding.

12-29-2003, 04:46 AM
Ok, does that look easier to read now?

12-29-2003, 04:48 AM
Yeah, that's alright. If you have time, unbold either the team name or the results.

Good job, but your numbers don't add up.

I would have added up the wins and losses, but I was hella tired when I made the list (it was past midnight), so that idea didn't even come to me.
