Hello and welcome back to the ORIGINAL, the STILL RUNNING, the.....oh who cares, most of you are vets anyway, so on with the contest!

The Rules:
You will choose the straight-up winner of NFL games for the week. Records will be tallied. Top 12 make the playoffs. Picks can be entered anytime before the kickoff time for that game. After kickoff of that game, picks are locked. If you want to make your picks for Week 17 now, go nuts.

Now we get to the wrinkle of a tiebreaker: I will select an NFL Game Of The Week - it could be a barnburner, it could be a Sominex special. You in turn will not only pick the winner, but also the posted point spread for said game. Example:

If the GOTW is Chiefs at Patriots, you will select which team you think will win (I'll pick the Chiefs, just to annoy acr). If the Chiefs are favored (work with me here) by 10 points, and you think they'll win by 10, then you will put the points in your pick (Chiefs, -10). If you think the Chiefs will allow garbage Tom Brady to score late and the Chiefs will win by less than 10 points, you will show that (Chiefs, +10). If you think the Pats will win, you'll automatically take the underdog points (Pats, +10). If you want a better explanation as to how point spreads work, check out Clipper's Bakay game breakdown (just don't include the money).

I'm going to collect thoughts on this way as opposed to the old way (winner, points, total offensive yards), so opinions welcome. Well maybe not welcome so much as tolerated, but still.

Questions? Now's the time to ask.

Did you know Stuart Scott almost made the Scripps National Spelling Bee as a child? Then the judges asked for skiing, but he only had one I. - acr
