1-0 for the moment
Any reason why our record is not being updated?
Because the games aren't over with yet (the Detroit game is still going on). I've already entered in all the ones that have ended, but I'll do it late tonight after this one (the Pats game) is over so that the results will be up by the morning.
Thanks Ian - it's current now. I didn't realize that you had to manually update the list! Thanks for doing this for us.
It's not current yet, I have to code in the tie and add that game, followed by the Patriots game when it's over. Leave it to the Lions to throw in this little bit of a curveball
I don't have to manually update the whole thing, I just have to manually update the schedule results and then run the script I wrote to tally everyone's records. Not too horrible
Thanks for putting together the picks function of the website. I was wondering if it would be possible to pin this thread or have picks app in the main menu on the top left?
8 and 3 so far, not bad
9-4 unfortunately - that Lions/Cardinals game killed a lot of us and actually stopped two guys from being perfect heading into tomorrow night
Yes, definitely. I'll come up with something this week.
Here are the standings through tonight:
PatsFans.com Weekly NFL Picks Contest Standings
For those who were late to the party and missed a few games, I'll come up with something based on the number of games people have participated in, although obviously moving forward, you'll need to each pick the whole week
But this is where we are heading into the Monday night games ... that stupid Lions/Cardinals game was brutal. Never guessed we'd have a tie in week 1 when I put this together
10-4 not bad I'll take it for week 1, thanks Ian... Just a suggestion for the results page, maybe a username lookup query instead of searching through the whole list?
Yes...I was thinking about that. I was thinking I'll probably add a button you can hit that will take you right to your respective block. I figured that would probably be the easiest thing since you're already logged in and it will be easy to code out. I'll work on that as well.
I'm also going to add the ability to view all your picks/results so you can see the games you picked correctly or which one you might have missed. This whole thing will probably be sort of a work in progress, but I'll keep adding to it and hopefully in a week or two it will be much better.
Ian I was stunned about the AB thing and forgot to change my pick on Tonight's game.
Too bad you can't make a tie be a "push", where it's neither a 'W' or an 'L'. It's not like we can pick 'T'. Ha ha ha.
I know...I was going to look into how some others handle it. But I still can't believe that happened ... figures
7-7 for me... I'm surprised I didn't do better... I did almost as much research as this renowned pundit...
Still two more to go and either way, next week is still a clean slate as far as the week-to-week picks go. Not to mention, it's a long season still for the overall season picks. Anything can happen
Plus, it's still going to be fun each week to see how these go. I've wanted to set something like this up for a while just to make each weekend's games a little more interesting and to have a little fun. I have a guy I work with who used to do this and lose money. This is way less stressful
