Well that sucked. Hard.
Luckily we still have the home playoff game in our back pocket, but that game sure reminded me of seasons past. Moreso than any game this year.
Anyhow, before the season, 62 of us picked how each game would turn out, and since before the season the Colts looked a lot more fearsome, many (58%) thought we'd lose that game. Well, we did. But going into the game, I bet the results would be much different. If we go to the Super Bowl, we'll have to figure out how to do something we've never done: win a football game in Indianapolis.
Matt Phillips was the leader going into that game, and would have nearly locked it up if we could have kept our former backup QB from going 80 yards with 1:52 and no timeouts against our top ranked defense.
With that loss, Matt moved into a tie with six other pickers who boldly predicted that our division champs would lose to the lowly Colts on Thursday night football. And since all seven of them have us beating the living meth out of the BE-SFs on Sunday, the final results are in. Well, just about. Only four pickers picked us to lose this last game, and one of them, Mikus318, is one game out. So if we win, the winners of the BRB Pickem are:
and if we
fall rest our starters, they get lucky, and the refs help out the visitors in crucial moments, add Mikus318 to the list of big winners.
Now how to figure out a tie-breaker? The most shocking decision turned out to be the last Indy game, but 6/7 of the winners called it correctly.
So let me know how to break the tie and award the champion with free tickets to my playoff party. Its gonna be a blow out.
