NFL Conference Championship Playoff Round Prediction Games Results



Thanks for remaining patient as I've delayed getting the results published.  The good news is I still have my job.  More good news, I still have my second job.  Maybe I might be able to keep this job.  Now that the good news is squared away lets look at the bad news or maybe it's great news.  Sneaking a peak at the results it was feast or famine Championship playoff weekend so you probably already know if you are moving on ... so lets get to it.

Playoff Pool Contest

Only the top 4 from the Championship Playoff Round move on to play for the Predication Game Championship in the Super Bowl.

Going to play for the Super Bowl

illini49er - He hammered it home for top spot of the week and a bid to the Super Bowl. Also learned that illini49er is actually a nice guy, not one of those silent creepy ones. He shows sympathy for both Alex Smith and Nate Davis had his wife teaches special need kids. Maybe nice guys do finish first.

49erLou - He shot up the power rankings the final weeks to secure a playoff spot and he's kept on rolling in the playoffs. He's sorta on a Green Bay Packer run. Who knows why his picks were injured and under-performing early? It doesn't matter now, next week he plays for the title.

leaping_larry - I guess one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse had to make the final final ... it makes sense right? I write mean things about Larry all the time but don't recall an actual thing I know about him other than he's good, damn good. Super Bowl finalist good.

wjackalope - Saddam Hussein ... oh wait this pisses chikmagnet off. You know who doesn't care? wjackalope doesn't care, he's on the cusp of a title! He doesn't give rats [site decorum] what we say about him right now. I warned you early in the season he was evil. Awwwhhh he's about to conquer the Predication Contest realm.

Eliminations - Round III

sf49ers123 - I'd like to say you were close but the results this week were not close. The good news is you came this far. You and Rex can remissness about the mighty 2010-2011 seasons. Same expectations next season, Jets going to win the title.

Ninerfromacrossthepond - The Yankees got your number this week. You had people convinced you were going to sneak in for the title but your run has come to the end. It's hard winning one championship (1812) let alone two. Time to watch the Super Bowl on the couch with the rest of us.

Rabbit T - Luck finally run out. It's tough eliminating you Rabbit but the numbers don't lie. The Ball Doesn't Lie is a horrible blog on Yahoo. I know the best I got is a non-sequitur to comfort you. Hey look a butterfly ... [pop! tear drops as I put rabbit to rest].

DuikeBuike - At least you didn't take a bye this week. Bad news is you scored the same amount of points. Oh well, I'll give you the Jay Culter award anyways considering I have to hand one out. Let the record show DuikeBuike didn't quit, he just had a terrible week.

See the final four next week as you will square off for the title in an battle royal of epic proportions.

BIT Contest

We let the Playoff Pool contestants into the BIT Contest and they have expectantly crushed us. There are a chosen few left who can smite the gods: jtoj, groug, grantmp and SpurredOn. Than again someone like 49erLou could win both next week pulling off the rare and prestigious Double Rainbow Predication title. The rest of us will be playing for pride. I've been playing for pride since Week 5.

Scoring Explained

Your prediction has these same three components as the actual game score.

1) If you predict the correct winner for an individual game, we will score your prediction against the actual game. If you predict the incorrect winner for an individual game, your prediction will not be scored.

2) Ideally, you will predict the exact point differential of the actual game. Say, for example, this is 45. If you predict a score with a PD of 45, the difference between your predicted PD and the actual PD is 0 (45 - 45 = 0). The worse your prediction, the greater that difference becomes. Therefore, the closer the difference is to zero, the better.

3) Ideally, you will predict the exact point total of the actual game. Say, for example, this is 65. If you predict a score with a PT of 65, the difference between your predicted PT and the actual PT is 0 (65 - 65 = 0). The worse your prediction, the greater that difference becomes. Therefore, the closer the difference is to zero, the better.

So, assuming that you predict the correct winner of the individual game, we simply add the difference between your predicted and the actual PD to the difference between your predicted and the actual PT. The closer this total is to zero, the better your prediction is. A zero exactly will always be a perfect prediction.

pPD = Predicted Point Differential
aPD = Actual Point Differential
pPT = Predicted Point Total
aPT = Actual Point Total
x = Subscore

|pPD - aPD| + |pPT - aPT| = x

That total becomes your subscore for each individual game. These subscores are then ranked, and the five best (including ALL ties) are awarded points. Perfect predictions are awarded 10 points. If the highest subscore for a particular game is not a perfect prediction, it is awarded 5 points. Points then follow in descending order, so that all of the second best predictions get 4 points, the third best all get 3 points, and so on.
