    This season has been pretty unpredictable I believe. What a way to go out.

    Ties will go like this: 9 left so say 5 guys take Titans this week and Jags win and the other 4 guys picks keep them alive. The 4 alive go on to play for 1st place to 4 th place. The other five are out but still technically alive for the 5th place winner. So the 5 that went out would have to beermail there pick by 1pm Sunday and I will post those picks here by 1:05ish. Cool everyone.

    Thanks

    All that went out this week will keep going. You will beermail your pick by Sunday 1pm, then I will post the picks here. I will double check to make sure anyone picks a team they chose already. So please if you took Seattle don't tell me Seattle next weekend.

    Same rules above apply to BA2 league. It looks like if New Orleans wins tonight Fats Belvadere will get 1st place but 2nd and 3rd we will have to have everyone beer mail next week since everyone had either Tennessee or Indianapolis.

    I need to yell at a coworker today. He told me to take the saints, but wasn't convincing enough.

    NYG was my backup. I called my buddy and asked him about if I should take NYG instead but he just said, there's no way TENN will lose. And I agreed with him.

    Nice! Good luck everyone.

    As far as the box allotment, should we start that or wait until the end? For example, 20 people could ship 5 each to the top 4? Just a thought. If it's too much to manage, disregard :)
