    I just finished this up last night and it appears to be working so I figured I'd get this out there since the first game is tonight. You can pick the entire schedule and after this week, I'll also have a leaderboard with everyone's record, etc. Additionally, I'm setting up an area for people to see current results for who everyone is favoring based on the selections. I'll try and have that part up tonight.

    But go ahead and give it a try and make your picks here (you need to be logged in to do so):

    PatsFans.com Weekly NFL Picks Contest

    Should be fun to see how this goes :)

    Also, if you need to change your pick, just reload the page and then you can change it and it will update to your new selection :)

    I thought it would be fun. I haven't historically had much luck with picking games, so it should be funny to see how this goes. :cool:

    And no matter how badly it goes, keep picking anyway because I'll also break it up by week. That way, for those who don't do well and have a good week, you'll at least have a week to brag a little :D

    @Ian - I assume these are straight up rather than vs. some spread?

    Done! Looks like fun. Thanks for adding this. Will Alamo still be doing his own game as well?

    Thanks for this - it's fun to show off how bad I am at picking games!

    Next Tuesday, I'll re-load it and get them all right!

    I'm sure since his is a "predict the score" but we'll have to check with him. I'm going to see if I can't come up with something to help him out with that as well to make his life a little easier, so I'll see what I can put together. But I probably won't have anything like that ready for him until at least next week.

    Yes, just straight selections. I'll probably expand on this down the road as we get going with it, but we'll start with just the games themselves for right now.

    His contribution in that regard, over the years, puts him in the Patsfans forum hall of fame. You should name whatever systems you come up with here for score predicting after him, playful naming off of "Alamo."

    It would absolutely be "Alamo's Predict the Score" contest - I wouldn't have it any other way :)

    Of course :) I mentioned this to him a few years ago but we never got around to it, so hopefully, I can help do that if he'd like me to. I've already reached out to him so we'll see how it goes. I know he's got a pretty good system in place already but if I can make his life a little easier, I'm obviously happy to do it :D

    Where do we look for this from week to week -- will it be a sticky? Thanks Ian.

    I'll post a thread each week, probably on Tuesday mornings after it updates to the next week's schedule.

    How about every week adding a crown to the winner's avatar.

    I was thinking about something like that. I was thinking about a creating a separate band like the "PatsFans.com Supporter" that would be for that, so that's a good suggestion :)
