    was a blast playing pickems this year and watching as many games possible, but it was regular season only. ive already got this one ready to go, but am unsure if we should drop the worst week or not (theres only 4 weeks!) so drop a vote if your considering joining. this ones going to be short and sweet. its the first time they do playoffs so this going to be an expirement as well.

    so if you missed out the first round and would like to join bm me your email and i will add you to the yahoo nfl pickem group, be sure to vote.

    the boxes will be the same size, and the number of boxes will be dependent on the turnout, if theres enough interest top 3 players will receive. window to ship is mid february.

    losers send 44oz of good local beer, not a huge buy in, but a nice payoff to the winners.

    thoughts and remarks appreciated.

    Got 6 folks in so far. Looks like everything counts this time around.

    Let's get more folks in on this, 2 bombers ain't difficult to get together. Come on guys let's get it going. This is a good opportunity for new traders to participate, and get a bif/lif under their belt

    This will close a day before the playoffs start

    Just signed up, thanks for running this again. I vote for making every pick count. Also I know this mentions just the playoffs, but is the probowl included as one of the weeks?

    Thanks for the invite. Looking forward to getting my feet wet in one of these things. (And since I'm guaranteed to lose, because I know me and my game picking ability, it'll help me build rep for shipping on time. haha)

    each person picks the teams they think will one, the people with the highest correct picks win boxes.

    this is going to close tonight.

    this ones going to be freaking nuts. no more entries unless you got a request to enter from me. we are at 19-22 depending if everyone signs up. wow this one is going to be good, and extremely close. looks like tie breakers are really gonna count here!

    probably should have capped it a bit sooner but we can manage i think.

    thanks for everyone who signed up!
