We all know the drill by now. If anybody needs a recap of the rules or is a new person who wants to join in (lol) speak up and we'll do a run down.

Don't forget to include a tiebreaker - total points scored in the super bowl. Second tiebreaker is order of entry (earlier submission wins), as always.

Thaaaaaaank you!!!!! This is my favorite thing, mainly because I won the first time I participated. I've been chasing that high again for over a decade. (Of course, that also means the Pack won the SB that year, and will need to do so in order for me to ever win the Pick'em again).

I assume you just rank the playoff pool 1-14 with the highest numbers going to the teams you are most confident in?
 
The bye must factor into the math somehow but I can't conceptualize it right at this moment.

The bye teams can only win a max of 3 games whereas other teams can possibly win 4, but you have to balance that with the fact that the bye teams are the top teams in the conferences.

it's definitely a lot easier to rank the teams now that there's only 2 bye teams instead of 4, because you're no longer guaranteed to have at least 2 bye teams losing at some point.

In all seriousness, if anyone wants to know what lies ahead in the crystal ball, I’m gonna run that tonight.

I won’t post it like last year but I’m asking Mr. C for permission to triple embed spoiler tags for each request ?
