I feel it's fully functional now so we'll call it BETA for a couple weeks until all the bugs are worked out.

How to submit a pick using NFL Picks?
Click on the team you predict to win. You'll see your selection under "Pick" column confirming your selection has been stored. To change your selection, click the other team.


If you see something incorrect or fishy, please post it here.

If you have suggestions for making this a more efficient/pleasant experience, please post it here.


Things To Come??

  1. Click on member name on weekly leader board to view their picks.

This is an awesome idea, I've been doing this on another forum for 5 years now. The only difference is, we've had to manually keep score the whole time, automating it on this site is awesome. We have since moved on to using this site: http://saseliminator.com/ to keep track for us.

By the way, I made picks but when I go back to look at them nothing is there. I tried to figure out if that is still supposed to happen and the last thing I read makes me think I should be able to see them, is this correct?

I'm really pleased with how this project has turned out. Unfortunately I had to remove everyone's picks after week 3. I didn't have the games sorted properly. Example, Sunday nights game was game 5 which is silly considering it's the 2nd to last game of the week so it should be game 15. Yeah, not a big deal, but it annoyed me ... it should be thursday game, noon games, late afternoon games, sunday game and monday night. Which is how it's laid out now for all weeks.

It's a work in progress, but again, I'm pleased with it.


Go ahead, make some more picks. Currently wpr is leading the way with 9 correct!

One Suggestion that I might request.. the ability to view others picks after the games are through.. or even before them, but that might induce a certain degree of influence and maybe a touch of treachery in ones picks.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

An option to view other members picks is an excellent addition. However, I would oppose being able to see who has picked who in future weeks. If Member A has a two game lead on Member B, they could simply match their picks making it impossible for Member B to win.

Edit, I've moved some posts to an archive thread.

I think Sunday I deleted all picks from week 4 and after. I didn't have the games sorted properly. The friggin Sunday night game was listed as game 5 or game 11 in some cases rather than game (second to last) 15. I know most probably don't care but I had to fix it before Shawn took advantage of my OCD!

The good news is you can check your picks so ...

There was a little loop where you could cheat, but that's been taken care of. No one took advantage of it, luckily. :)

Another thing, even if you missed the first week (week 4), don't worry about jumping in late. We're going to have a Week by Week winner too. Once I find time to figure out how to code it in. :)

Week by Week totals is completed and active on the beta site. When comfortable with it, I'll push it to the live site.

Viewing previous member picks is proving to be rather unpleasant.

This is awesome! We have about 15 participants. Very cool! I hope more folks join in on this! The more data I get this season, the more statistical analysis I can have prepared for next season!

I think a leader board by correct percentage would be cool as well with partial participants.

% = Correct picks / Total Picks by member.

People will miss weeks.. this would give some comparison aspect in picks made.

One potential problem, some people might cherry pick games that they feel confident in. So maybe a protection that they have to pick full weeks to participate?
