The HFBoards NFL Predictions Contest

I figured that we could have a bit of a competition to see who can best correctly predict overall how the season will go this year.

What you must include the following predictions:
-Each of the 8 division winners, as well as the 4 wild card teams
-The Coach of the Year
-The Offensive MVP
-The Defensive MVP
-The Rookie of the Year
-The result of the NFC and AFC championships
-The Super Bowl championship

How this will be scored:

-Two points will be given for correctly predicting a division winner. If a team you predicted to win the divison gets a wild card spot, you recieve ONE point for that.
-Two points will be given for correctly predicting a wild card team. If a team you predicted to get a wild card spot wins their division, you recieve ONE point for that.

-Three points for having the Coach of the Year
-Three points for having the Offensive MVP
-Three points for having the Defensive MVP
-Three points for having the Rookie of the Year

-Two points for correctly predicting a team to be in their conference championship
-Two additional points for correctly predicting a team to win their conference
-Four additional points for correctly predicting the Super Bowl champion

So, the maximum amount of points one can recieve is 52 points.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The deadline to post your predictions is September 8th. The standings will be updated immediately once the NFL awards for the season are given out, as well as at the end of the regular season, and then updated once more after the postseason ends.

Quick forewarning: If anyones predictions posts are edited at any point after the deadline, you will be automatically disqualified. No excuses whatsoever.

With all that said, here are my predictions, which you can use as an example:

Yep, I didn't intend it to be linked to this. We could start it up on Monday or something, and take predictions for week 1 up until the New England-Indy game on Thursday.

Nice idea, I'll get my entry in soon. I'll edit this post to do so.

You guys want to make picks on each game every week? We'll take what the point spread is and make our predictions, and see who has the best record at the end of the year.

We should, but no point spread.

Bumping this for the first time to allow people to see how their predictions are going with the playoff picture starting to slowly come into focus.

Big props to Chris_Dub for predicting the Steelers to win their division, and um....everyone can point and laugh at DanMcGillis03 for predicting the Cowboys to win the NFC East and the Eagles not making the playoffs.

AFC
EAST: Pats- looking good
NORTH: Ravens- ouch, probable wildcard
SOUTH: Colts- probably will happen
WEST: Chiefs- ouch
WILD CARDS: Jags-possible, Jets-probable

NFC
EAST: Eagles- looking good
NORTH: Vikings- i think the packers are gunna pull it out
SOUTH: Panthers- ouch
WEST: Seahawks- possible
WILD CARDS: Cowboys, Saints... double disaster

AFC Championship: Colts over Cheifs
NFC Championship: Eagles over Vikings
Super Bowl Champion: Colts

COACH: Jack Del Rio- possible
OFFENSIVE MVP: Peyton Manning- nailed it
DEFENSIVE MVP: Ray Lewis
ROOKIE: Roy Williams

Oh well, I've got the individual game predicitions to brag about :)

Not gunna make new predicitons, but I see Green Bay getting to the NFC championship, and BEATING the Eagles.

Green Bay to represent NFC in the bowl.

Here are the standings so far, taking into account just division and wild-card predictions....which make up a little less than half of the total points.

1. 19bruins19: 15 points
Steadfast/Zednik: 15
MontrealCruiser_83: 15
chris_dub: 15
5. Tuggy: 14
Alexander the Great: 14
walknucklers: 14
8. JCD: 13
OneSpeedOnly: 13
Hercules Rockefeller: 13

11. ObeySteve: 12
eSabre: 12
loveshack2: 12
monster_bertuzzi: 12
PredsFan77: 12
16. Fire Sather: 11
ChubarovRocks: 11
Dan McGillis 03: 11
19. s3por2d: 10


MontrealCruiser_83 and ATG put up the most points for one conference with an amazing 10 points for the NFC.

Recap of the scoring system for this part:

-Two points will be given for correctly predicting a division winner. If a team you predicted to win the divison gets a wild card spot, you recieve ONE point for that.
-Two points will be given for correctly predicting a wild card team. If a team you predicted to get a wild card spot wins their division, you recieve ONE point for that.

Yuck, I have Holmgren as coach of the year and Seattle winning the Super Bowl. Making more of a bold prediction like that was stupid. :lol

ObeySteve
01-03-2005, 05:09 PM
I think Chris_Dub has the best chance of winning at this exact point in time. He's tied for the lead for the standings, has the Offensive MVP right and has a decent shot of getting both Super Bowl teams right.

This thing is still wide open, though.
