Charity Football Pool – Week #4 Update

Charity Football Image REV 9.2

Week #4 saw some close games, great comebacks, and wild finishes. The biggest upset of the week, again involving the St. Louis Rams, who went on the road to defeat their division rival Arizona Cardinals, actually had no bearing on our pool at all, as none of our players had a pick on that game.

A fumble 6 inches from the goal line and a subsequent blown officiating call kept the Detroit Lions from upsetting the defending NFC Champion Seahawks on Monday night, which WOULD HAVE had a major effect on the pool, with 3 of our remaining players having picked Seattle.

But in the end only 1 player was eliminated when the Washington Redskins scored a late TD to upset the Philadelphia Eagles 23-20.

Week #4 by the numbers:

6 players began Week #4
1 eliminated (lost on Philadelphia)
5 advance to Week #5

Charity Football Pool – Week #3 Update

Charity Football Image REV 9.2

After a crazy week #2 that saw 7 underdogs win straight up, dwindling the pool down to single digits, things returned to normal in week #3 as the majority of favorites were winners. Only 1 player, who picked the underdog Buccaneers, was eliminated in week #3. 3 winners advanced picking the Arizona Cardinals, and 1 each advanced by picking New England, Pittsburgh, and Seattle.

Week #3 by the numbers:

7 players began Week #3
1 eliminated (lost on Tampa Bay)
6 advance to Week #4

Note: The NFL has an abnormal schedule for this week with the Jets/Dolphins game at 9:30am Eastern on Sunday (to be played in London). We will be treating this game as an early game (similar to Thursday). Players have up until the scheduled kickoff to pick this game, but may still submit picks for the remainder of the games up until the normal pick deadline at 1pm Eastern on Sunday.

Charity Football Pool – Week #2 Update

Charity Football Image REV 9.2

The moniker “Black Sunday” (and Monday Night) doesn’t even begin to describe the absolute annihilation of our pool, as 7 of the top 8 most picked teams all came up losers in Week #2.

The Saints took their usual place at the top of the “pool killer” list by losing their home opener to the Buccaneers. But the thrashing didn’t end there. Upset losses by the Ravens, Dolphins, Colts, and Rams all contributed to the carnage.

Week #2 by the numbers:

34 players began Week #2
27 eliminated
7 advance to Week #3

IMPORTANT: Please remember that the web site (www.runyourpool.com) locks picks precisely at 1:00 PM ET on SUNDAY for ALL GAMES played on Sunday and Monday Night.(This includes ALL kickoff times for Sunday and Monday). You will be locked out from making picks at that time. For games played on Thursday or Saturday picks must be submitted before kickoff of the FIRST game played that day.

Charity Football Pool – Week #1 Update

Charity Football Image REV 9.2

This was one of the most interesting opening weeks in recent memory. There were very few obvious favorites this week, and that was reflected by the fact that among our 60 players, at least 1 pick was made on 20 of the 32 teams.

The most significant upset of the day, eliminating 9 players, saw the Rams, with their new QB Nick Foles, take down the defending NFC champion Seahawks in a crazy game in St.Louis.

Week #1 by the numbers:

60 entries
26 eliminated (9-Seattle, 5-Indianapolis, 4-No Pick, 3-Philadelphia, 1-each Detroit, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay)
34 advance to Week #2

IMPORTANT: Please remember that the web site (www.runyourpool.com) locks picks precisely at 1:00 PM ET on SUNDAY for ALL GAMES played on Sunday and Monday Night.(This includes ALL kickoff times for Sunday and Monday). You will be locked out from making picks at that time. For games played on Thursday or Saturday picks must be submitted before kickoff of the FIRST game played that day.
