Howdy ho, all you fellow football connoisseurs. It’s time to lay down the rules and present the games for Week 1 of our S.I. Pigskin Picks Pool.

For those of you new to the pool and players needing a refresher (it has, after all, been a long summer), here’s the scoop on how we pull this together:

HOW WE PLAY

This will be a confidence pool – you simply need to pick the teams you feel confidently will win. If the team for each game you pick wins, you get a point; if the team you pick loses, you get nadda-nuttin’-zilch.

In the event of a tie between players in total games picked correctly for the week, the tie-breaker will be the Monday Night Football (MNF) game where you will need to guess the total of the final score. The tied player closest to the final MNF score without going over will be that week’s winner. In case of a tie within a tie with the MNF score, we’ll have one of MH and DS’s fur babies point to a user name onscreen to determine the ultimate winner. (Bribery doggie treats may be sent to the address via the “Donations” link).

There are two exceptions for the MNF games in terms of the tie-breaker: On Week 1, there are two MNF games being played, so the tie-breaking game will be the last game being played – San Diego at Arizona. MNF ends after Week 16, so on week 17, the tie-breaker for that game will be the last game played for the day (teams/times are TBA due to possible NFL flex scheduling).

The player with the most correct picks at the end of the regular season wins the illustrious title of “S.I. – Pigskin Picks Champion!” That’s it – just a title and accolades from your fellow players. No money, no autographed footballs, no Super Bowl tickets – just bragging rights. After the season, those players interested in continuing through the playoffs and onto the Super Bowl will be entered into another pool. Should you win that round, again, you win nothing – just another title. If you’re into titles, great. If you need cash, try your luck in the $1B March Madness Pool.

Updates with the winners and information on the next week's games will be posted each week on a new thread sometime on Tuesday (maybe Wednesday, depending on how happy or upset I am with how the Broncos have played).

PICK DEADLINES:

Your picks for the week will be due no later than Game Day at 11 a.m. CT. to include the Thursday night and Thanksgiving Day games. You may enter all your picks for the week then or just for the game being played on Thursday night or Turkey Day. Picks for the Sunday and MNF games will be due at 11 a.m. CT on Sunday morning. Don’t worry about remembering all of this as I’ll post pick deadlines each week. The season starts on Thursday, September 4th, when the Green Bay Packers take on the Seattle Seahawks (think end zone shenanigans.)

HOW TO POST PICKS:

Simply copy the games listed as below and then paste them into your reply thread. Then, it is INCREDIBLY helpful if you simply edit the information down to JUST the teams you are picking to win. I take the information you provide and copy/paste it into a mega-sized Excel spreadsheet which needs to have the order of the games match, so please refrain from using the bold or italic features as the less editing I have to do, the better. Next to the tie-breaker game (which will always be clearly noted), place your guess as to the total score of the game. To help you figure that out, research – *cough, cough*/earmuff the children/don’t Google this at work – the over/under for each game which can be freakishly accurate at times.

REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF – (BOLDED TO SHOW ITS IMPORTANCE):

In fairness to all players (and to help keep my sanity), it is each player’s responsibility to ensure that they have a team selected for each game and/or clearly indicate who their winning pick will be. If changes are made, they must be made by the deadline indicated for each week on your original posting OR THE PICK WILL NOT COUNT. The edited post time stamp will determine whether or not a pick is in on time. As I have in the past, I will do my best to “catch” picks that are not listed but in the end, it is up to each player to review the number of teams they have picked to ensure they match the total number of games being played in a given week.

Finally, we really want you to enjoy the next seventeen and change weeks, so sit back, have fun making your picks and let’s get ready for some genuine smack talking!

I think I had to be knocked upside the head several times before this sank in, so I just wanted to help reiterate on this go around.

As a born and raised Cowboy fan I'm predicting the worst season in 25 years.

Booger bear I thought you were a KC fan but with you having the Ravens winning two games simultaneously I guess you bleed purple!

I may have gotten some input from my resident Foosball expert ( ), but I made the ultimate decisions. Indianapolis and Denver was tricky... I might come back and change that. Also, I hate putting Seattle up for anything but I'm trying to win here.
