Welcome to the 2015-2016 Pick'em! If you are rejoining us from last year, then you know the drill. For the rest of you, hi. Welcome to our annual football pool. All you do here is pick winners and losers, and guess at a couple of scores each week. Spreads are for suckers. Winners and losers, just like life.

If you take first place for the season, you'll win something. What it is yet, I dunno. Lemme dig around my closet of old sports stuff. Last year's prize package contained a William 'Fridge' Perry GI Joe action figure and an electronic Mattel Football II handheld game, won by Cuando Lo Veas in a brilliant repeat victory! Can he threepeat? Can you stop him? Updated prize details will be posted downthread as they occur.

Anyway, the league doesn't kick off until the first game of the regular season, so you have all of pre-season to truck on over to Yahoo Fantasy Sports and sign up. We're private group id # 3424, and the password is v3. It's totally simple, free, and open to all. Join us in our annual ritual of sports prediction.

That is, of course, unless you're yella. And now, the fine print:

1. Prizes will be awarded to the single player with the highest accumulated points for the complete regular season + all post-season games after each player's two lowest scoring weeks have been dropped, as determined by Yahoo's scoring system.
2. In the event of a tie, and the tied players are located in Phoenix, players will meet for an elbow coin-catching contest. If tied players are not all located in Phoenix, each player must submit a photo of themselves in the Heisman pose, holding a live animal of their choice instead of the ball. The commissioner's judgement will be swift, just, and final. Should the commissioner himself be one of the tied parties he will withdraw from the competition so he can judge impartially.
3. If the winner is located in Phoenix, the prizes will be hand-delivered by the commissioner. If the winner is outside of Phoenix, the prizes will be mailed with alacrity at the league commissioner's expense.

I have been so disappointing in recent years. I want to be a comeback kid or something like that.

I hate that I typically get off to a fast start and then blow it. You'd think I was a Cowboys fan by that kind of record, but I'm not. Screw the Cowpukes.

Prize package announced!

Included in this year's prize pool will be this pair of 10" Pro-bot action figures of Eli and Peyton Manning, circa 2009!


Throw a switch on their back, and their helmets flip on!


Here they are depicted kicking the crap out of Commissioner Roger Goodell (portrayed by Clark Gregg,
not included in prize package).


Also included in the prize package is this authentic Super Bowl XXXV necktie! SB35 was notable because it
was the Giants' first Super Bowl loss, to the Ravens, 34-7.

Week one goes to Buster Hymen with 11 wins, who leads the 6-way tie for first by virtue of tiebreaker picks! Congrats!

Week two goes to Bayou Gris Gris, who managed to pull 9 points out of this amazing crapfest of a week! Congrats and welcome to sole possession of first place for the league... for now!

Redskins at Giants coming up Thursday!

THAT'S MORE LIKE IT! This week's win goes to adamwdraper, who broke the 5-way tie for first by virtue of tiebreaker picks with an impressive 14 points! As the 2 weeks of drop points have kicked in, this also gives Adam sole possession of first place overall, but the season is young and there are many weeks to go! Overalls will become more much representative of your long game as the total weeks add up.

Ravens at Steelers coming up Thursday!

DEUCE! This week's winner is once again adamwdraper, whose mighty back-to-back weekly wins lead me to believe that he's holding a grudge against reigning champion Cuando Lo Veas who edged Adam out a couple years back in the paper football tiebreaking event. There's plenty of season to go though, it's still anyone's ballgame!

Colts at Texans coming up Thursday!

Big ups to Penzini who took the week by virtue of tie-breaking picks, edging out Sunny who also pulled 11 wins out of a week that most of us are dropping, thanks to an exciting last-play win by the Steelers last night.

Falcons at Saints division rivalry game coming up Thursday!

Congrats to Cuando Lo Veas who took top honors this week, breaking the 3-way tie of 10 games from Sunny and adamwdraper. While his score and tiebreaking picks were enough to give him this weekly victory, it's still one of his two lowest weeks of the season to date and is considered a drop!

Seahawks at Niners coming up Thursday!

Week 7 goes to Spam_Vigilante, who masterfully pulled 12 wins out of an ugly week where only one other person even picked in the double digits. This also gives Spam sole possession of first place in the overalls for the moment. Well done!

Dolphins at Patriots coming up Thursday!

Sorry about the missed update last week, there was a surprising lack of internet access on the ocean around Haiti.

Week 8 was won handily by elizabeth de arcos, who only missed 2 games out of the entire week's schedule. Week 9 was far more brutal, and Bears took it with 9 wins. Nice pickin', both of you!

Bills at Jets coming up Thursday!
MAKE YOUR PICKS!

Week 10 was such an unbelievable stinker that EVERY SINGLE PLAYER including the week's winner A Big Floppy Hat dropped the week's score as one of their two throwaways. Games are supposed to get easier to call later in the season, what the hell's going on??

Titans at Jaguars coming up Thursday!
MAKE YOUR PICKS!

Congrats once again to Cuando Lo Veas who took top honors this week by breaking the tie at 11 with Penzini. While still a brutal week for most of us, this one went considerably better than last!

THREE games coming up this Thursday: PHI/DET, CAR/DAL, and CHI/GB!

High five to LoS gAnSiToS, who took the week's first place from me by virtue of better tiebreaking picks. Well done, but you're off the Christmas list!

Packers at Lions coming up Thursday!

Gratz once again to LoS gAnSiTos, who once again took the week's top spot with the tiebreaker, this time from elizabeth de arcos. The season's winding down and the margins are narrow - it's still anyone's ballgame going into the playoffs as far as the PickEm is concerned!

Vikes at Cards coming up Thursday!

Congrats to Flippin Coins who managed to take sole possession of first place for the week by pulling 13 wins out of a difficult set of matchups! Nicely played!

Big ups to Bears who only missed 2 games this week and finished with a very respectable 14 picks! Well done!

Bears is only 1 point out of first place overall, it's a big ole battle as we head for the end of the regular season with no less than FIVE players vying for the lead, all separated by that mere 1 point! Playoffs count too, though, so we ain't done yet! BUCKLE UP FOR THE RIDE!

Chargers at Raiders coming up Thursday!
MAKE YOUR PICKS!

LoS gAnSiToS does it again, taking week 16 with a respectable 11 wins. One more week of the regular season to go, then we move into the post-season, which all counts toward selecting our grand-prize-receiving 2015-2016 champion! DOWN TO THE WIRE, FOLKS!

All games are on Sunday this week!
MAKE YOUR PICKS!

Well, the regular season is done and we're on to playoffs! FuhrerGoodell took the final week with 11 points. It's an incredibly close contest at this point, with adamwdraper in first overall, 4 people tied for second a mere 1 game behind him, and a total of 8 players all within four points of the lead - there are fewer points to be won each week of the playoffs, but this puppy is by no means complete!

Two games on Saturday, two on Sunday!
MAKE YOUR PICKS!

Being mathematically eliminated today wasn't fun.
Playing this season was.
Good luck to all.

I feel ya, but then I was mathematically eliminated around week 5. It's been a fun - and fast - season and it's exciting watching it come down to the wire with so many so close in the playoffs!
