    Hello kind folks and welcome to a new NFL game for this year. Short notice, no mod approval, but let’s see if we can get a week of colors for the winner.

    Step 1.
    Pick your Super Bowl champion now. 15pts if correct

    Step 2.
    Pick your Wild Card Winners now. 3pts for each correct

    Step 3.
    Assign your confidence for each game now. Rank 1-4, do not duplicate numbers. Divisional round will be 1-4 as well, Conf Champs will be 7 or 5. Super Bowl will get you 15pts.

    Here are my picks as a guide.

    Super Bowl: Saints

    Seahawks over Cowboys, confidence 2
    Texans over Colts, confidence 1
    Bears over Eagles, confidence 4
    Chargers over Ravens, confidence 3

    I guess I should have mentioned you confidence assign gets added to your 3pt win. So a 4 pt confidence win will net you 7pts.

    When we get to the Super Bowl your pick will net you 3 +15 for a total of 18pts. If you also swami picked them that will get you another 15 for 33pt total. So you’re never really dead in this game until after the Super Bowl.

    (This is how many confidence points you want assigned to each game, right? Not a ranking of how confident you are in each pick?)

    What I meant was, it's not like "Confidence Ranking #1, Eagles over Bears. Confidence Ranking #2, Colts over Texans..." but it's the number of points you want assigned to it, right? If you think it's the other way, you'll end up listing them exactly backwards.

    I understand your question now. Yes, 4 would be your most confident and 1 least.

    Thanks for putting this together at the last second. I was wondering if we were going to have anything like this. (Yeah, now I'm in a good mood about it because I'm winning after one game. How cool am I?) Yeah, the overall winner will get colors as the NFL Playoff Pick 'Em Winner, but I also think I should be given colors at the same time as the "NFL Playoff Pick 'Em Leader After Game One."
