IDYFT NFL Pick 'Em: Coming Out Party

The first annual IDYFT NFL Pick 'em is a late-bloomer. But after her Debut it looks like the South could rise again. Like a cat on a hot tin roof.

The big boof was by Adw, whose "Shoe-In" pick of Seattle over the 49ers was like stepping in size 14 dog poo. Both Lbutler26 and Miwacar both called this upset correctly and will now be eligible to participate in nationally televised debates.

The Standings
1. Big Blue Monkey = 14 (he nailed everything except the upset)
2. Lbutler36 = 6
3. Karah, MMMan = 4
4. Miwacar, Adw = 0
5. Jess = -4

As you can see, the frolic is accessible even if you missed the Debut. Jump in: you can win a To The Last Drop t-shirt in your size.

This Week's Picks
1. Your Shoe-In?
2. Weekly Underdog List
Dolphins, Raiders, Bengals, Rams
3. Your Favorite/Disliked Team?
4. Clash of the Titans: Cowboys at Packers

A point of clarity: you are welcome to pick the same team several times. It's not my business if you want to put all your eggs in one basket.

I was going to ask if there would be a booby prize for the worst showing and then proceed to try to rack up as many negative points as possible.

Clearly, just thinking that sent me down the wrong path.

Booby prize or not, I'm going to see how far into the hole I can get myself. I suck at the foosball picking this season.

I've always thought that a booby was the prize, so there is reason to throw the game.

You may have had a poor showing to start but the Pick 'Em has been scientifically designed to keep it close. Consider that a picker stands to gain or lose 24 points every weekend -- that's a potential swing of 48 points. So being down negative four really isn't far from the leader spot.

Here's a tip: don't bet on the Vikings, Lions or Female Republicans to win.

Checking out the ticker, I am going to amend my shoe-in and pick the NY Giants instead.
