This is the place for the annual SI NFL Football picks. All are welcome to join. This is purely in fun and each season we have a great time, so we hope to see you here come September!

NFL Schedule-
nfl.com
sports.espn.go.com

For point spreads-

footballlocks.com

Since the Oregon Lottery quit point spreads, what we are using has some whole numbers. Add .5 to the number so we don't have to worry about ties.

Here are the rules:


1. Picks will include the Thursday games, 2 weekend games, Sunday night game, and Monday night game.

2. For the Thursday game only, the default is the HOME team if you fail to pick.

2. Picks must be in one (1) hour before game time.

3. Eliminate the prohibition against picking the same team 2 weeks in a row. HOWEVER, if the same team gets picked 3 games in a row, this rule will be reevaluated. We realize this may have to go out the window as we near season's end.

4. If you cannot be here to make your picks, please enlist a buddy to make the picks for you. The suggestion to create an U/F/H/A is too complicated. Personal responsibility, everyone!


5. Rudi and I make the rules. No arguments.

6. No political discussions are allowed. There are other threads for that.

7. Break the rules and you will be banned for the season.

8. BE NICE TO EACH OTHER!

9. We normally pick a game from each conference. In cross-conference games, the home team determines the conference.


You don't get your pick in you don't get credit for a win. It's a game, sports fans. No money involved.

SI The new NFL Complete Winners Circle

After years of procrastination , I've finally completed a SI The new NFL past winners board. Going back to 2002 I think the inception of the yearly NFL picking contest. I've included hyperlinks to the wining post. Wins were for the regular season. If I made some mistakes drop me a PM. I'm submitting this to Carolyn for insertion into the header. If anybody else want to be ambitious and add anything pertinent. Such as including best winning % . By all means, do so.and resubmit to Carolyn.
