    This is the 12th Annual NFL Pick'em hosted on GameWinners.

    Rules:
    1) Each week, every week, pick winners for every game for that week. Get one right, you get a point. Get one wrong, you don't get a point. If the game ties, you get a point regardless.
    2) Certain games will be marked as "Pigskin Picks", or "Pigskin Licks" if both teams are really bad. Pick these games correctly to improve your tiebreaker score, which will be important when it comes to making the playoffs. There will be anywhere from 0-4 Pigskin Picks each week.
    3) Picks for games must be in before gametime (usually Thursday night for a single game, then 1PM EST for the bulk of the rest). Any later than that and picks for games that have started will not count. If you miss the initial deadline for a set of games, you can still make picks for any games that have not started.

    NOTICE: There will be at least one game on the preceding Thursday night for every week except the final week. If you must, get a pick in for that Thursday game in by itself and then pick for the rest later. Do not forget, the first 16 weeks all have at least one early game!

    4) Everyone gets a 'bye' week. If you miss a week, your bye will be used and that week will not count against you. If you pick for all 17 weeks, the bye week will remove your worst week, thus improving your win percentage.
    5) If you miss a second week, you will have no bye week to save your ass this time and you'll receive 0 pts for that week.
    6) IF YOU MISS A THIRD WEEK, YOU WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE GAME. NO EXCEPTIONS. BE ABSOLUTELY SURE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO COME IN AND TAKE 15-30 MINUTES A WEEK FOR EVERY WEEK TO PICK GAMES BEFORE SIGNING UP

    Notice: If you know you're going to be unavailabe to pick for an extended period of time, say, a month or so, you are more than welcome to PM me picks for every week you'll be unavailable which I will relay at the appropriate time.

    7) I will remind those who have not made picks for games within 24 hours of gametime, either by sending messages/PMs/whatever they are called now, or instead using a feature similar to this: @Rick52
    8) Do not edit your picks. If you want to change your picks, just post your changes. This is to make life slightly easier for myself. Furthermore, don't edit or change your picks after gametime, or else all your picks for all games that have begun will be voided.
    9) You will be removed from the game if any of the following occur:
    -You miss a total of three weeks
    -You edit picks after gametime on two seperate occasions
    -You request to be removed
    -You break GW rules twice in the thread
    -Your account is banned or otherwise incapacitated during the game
    10) After the regular season, those with the highest winning percentages (after bye weeks are applied) will move on to picking playoff games (if turnout is low, this may just be everyone). I will give you a starting score based on your after-bye-applied win percentage, and then you'll be given weighted points for getting a game correct and then bonus points for getting a close score. More info on this at playoff time.
    11) The postseason winner will receive a little postbit football icon. I still have to fix that for these new boards, I know.

    I feel like I've done this enough times that I don't need to read the first post. Let me know if I'm wrong :p

    Is it weird that I read the entire post even though I've been participating in this since the dawn of time?

    That looks a lot more aggressive than I was anticipating. I'm in anyway.

    I wanna be the very best,
    Like no one ever was.
    To pick them is my real test,
    And nail the bloody scores.

    I will travel across the league,
    Searching far and wide.
    Teach this thread to understand,
    The fortune that's inside.

    Gotta pick 'em all! It's you and me,
    I know it's my destiny,
    Pick 'em all! Oh Pats are my best friend,
    With a Brady we must defend.
    Pick 'em all! A fluke so true.
    Blind picking will pull us through,
    You pick me and I'll pick you,
    Pick 'em all! Gotta fluke 'em all.

    Seeing the words Los Angeles in this looks funny. It's going to take a while for me to realize its the Rams without having to think about it for a few seconds.

    that's because there are no new games in the chrono series. I was surprised when I saw your name as one of the most recent posters

    First game is easy... Denver has no QB. They're going to run the ball all the time and we all know that CJ Anderson doesn't play well until the second half.

    Carolina (at) Denver (Thursday) [Pigskin Pick]

    This Denver team is going to look a lot like the Denver team that had Tim Tebow as their starter... only their QB isn't a "holier-than-thou" type of guy that is going to run the ball down the gut with his TE frame.

    Am I the only one that was hoping Mark Sanchez would win the starting job so I could scream "BUTT FUMBLE!" all the time?

    True or just game discussions in general. Most of the game forums are dead nowadays.

    Updated to here.

    I'm going to send out PMs to the people who played last year but have not made picks yet for this year (and Andy because he said he was playing) (edit: when the database errors stop happening, anyway)

    PS: I haven't started up a Survivor/Unsurvivor game nor do I plan to, so if anyone else wants to start up those games, feel free.
