DaBlog Picks Contest Finale and an Explanation of the “Fantasy” Playoffs

| December 30th, 2011

This week is the final battle in Da Bears Blog’s picks contest as Ufficio will try to hold off the surging TracDaddy. What’s at stake? A birdhouse. A photograph. A pile of Rice Crispie treats. Who will win? Who knows…

The Rules for the Finale:

  • Both Ufficio and TracDaddy must select THREE (3) DAY games against the spread.
  • Tiebreaker #1: Tony Romo’s QB rating against the Giants Sunday night.
  • Tiebreaker #2: Total yards receiving for Giants WR Victor Cruz Sunday night.
  • Closest wins. We are not playing Price is Right rules.

Lines this week: 

FALCONS -11 Bucs / 49ers -10.5 RAMS / VIKINGS -1 Bears / Lions -3.5 PACKERS / GIANTS -3 Cowboys / SAINTS -8.5 Panthers / Titans -3 TEXANS / Ravens -2.5 BENGALS / JAGUARS -3.5 Colts / DOLPHINS -2.5 Jets / PATRIOTS -11 Bills / RAIDERS -3 Chargers / BRONCOS -3.5 Chiefs / CARDINALS -3 Seahawks

Next Week is the Fantasy Playoffs…

…and after some prodding it seems we have significant interest in participating. The prize, once again, is delivery of six frozen Lou Malnati’s pizzas to your house or the location of your choosing courtesy of DaBearsBlog. It is my way of thanking you for a great season here on the site.

The rules are simple. Round one will be open to all who wish to participate. You select an offense, defense and special teams unit participating in the wild card round. For every point your offense and special teams score, you get a point. For every point your defense and special teams allow, you lose a point. It is a fantasy league that rewards your knowledge of the game – not the luck of a particular player running in a one-yard touchdown.

Once a unit is used, it is no longer available to you for the remainder of the postseason. Picks will be registered in the comments section of the Weekend Show’s return – next Friday.
