What's up nerds? Only a few more weeks left in the NFL season and we have an update that should put things into perspective coming down the stretch.
The BCS Championship game was last Monday and that led to some points for some people.
Eplin picked Alabama, giving him the pick'em bonus for the season. Congrats bud. Eplin receives 25 points for the bonus as well as 10 points for the pick'em game.
The 10 points were also won by Colin, Joe, Shawn, Gary, Jim, and Rob.
Additionally, Munez, Jim, and I also had Alabama winning the National Championship this year. so that's 30 points for each of us.
In the NFL we are down to 4 teams; New England, Denver, Carolina and Arizona.
Unbelievably, the only place where anyone can win points is like this.
If NE loses the AFC championship then 15 points can be won by me and Joe.
If DEN loses 15 points for Colin, Folden, and Gary
If Denver makes the Superbowl 20 points for Geiss and Munez
Other than that, the only awards up for grabs still are the Coach of the Year, Defensive & Offensive rookie of the year, and the League MVP.
In the pick'em. The games the last two weeks were worth 2 points a piece. So, here's where we stand point wise with a couple weeks left to play.
So, what's this mean?
This means Jim's basically going to win the whole thing. It's going to take a mighty comeback, and I think I'm the only one that can mathematically catch him still.
What's most likely is that Jim's going to come away the big winner, but let's not say it yet. Not until it's for sure.
12 points differentiate Colin and Me, which keeps 2nd place very much in play. If NE loses this weekend, that should give me the gap to beat Colin.
For Folden he's basically going to need to win a couple of individual awards to have a shot. If Mike Zimmer and Amari Cooper can win their awards, Folden could make it interesting for 2nd and 3rd place.
I'll be back with a small update next week, just to update the scores.
