Well, if I include the fact that they must have picked the winner with their guess, it would be fsfwannabe (30 to 17). However, both beardoggx (27 to 24) and sauce1977 (25 to 22) are only 7 points off.

Football Pickem: Overall Season Results

Here are the overall season results. I decided not to go with the plan to take out the bottom 3 scores for everyone because it wasn't really helping anyone. However, I am going to show you what would have happened if the top 24 players played every week using the average score(excluding missed weeks) in weeks that were missed.

Football Pickem: Current Draft Status

First, I want to apologize for the confusing poll for the playoff draft picks. Most of you got one of the teams you picked. I should have opened the poll to where you could see everyone's picks. Did you really think the top 4 teams in the playoffs would have made it that far down in the draft? For those who 3 picks didn't make the cut, I gave you the next best available team according to NFL.com.

11 of the top 12 have made picks. If sauce1977 doesn't submit any picks in time, then he will be skipped in the draft and we pick up our first alternate for the 12th draft pick, which will be ascillady.

Here are your draft picks:
1)taybar19           New England Patriots
2)arasnaem           Green Bay Packers
3)tranced_one        Indianapolis Colts
4)njlorelei          Dallas Cowboys
5)movieeditor        San Diego Chargers
6)gadaev             New York Giants
7)fsfwannabe         Seattle Seahawks
sauce1977	     NO PICK
8)bandcqulsj	     Jacksonville Jaguars
9)georgiarepublic    Pittsburgh Steelers
10)odinokivolk	     Tampa Bay Bucs
