1/14 - No Football Pickoff slate had all four games picked correctly. The top score of the week was +228 from HooeyPoo, who doubled Baltimore over Denver, but then didnít know when to quit when he picked Houston over the Patriots. Only one slate had all four games picked incorrectly, however.

Heading into Conference Championship week, Balrog is hanging on to a slight lead, now 34 points. Just two weeks ago, that lead was 375, which had to feel pretty secure. Now heís just hoping to channel his inner Falcon and eke out a late win. And since neither of the top two contenders can afford to coast at this point, the third and fourth place teams also come into the picture. It reminds me of Final Jeopardy in those situations when the top two contestants are close in score, thereby creating an opportunity for the third place contestant to vault ahead if both of the top two falter.

By the way, the midseason contest is really close, with only 9 points separating the top two, and only 101 points separating the top five.

1/7 - The Wildcard playoff round went very normally, with three of the four home teams winning. Twenty-five slates in Football Pickoff had all four favorites correctly picked. Only six slates missed all four games. Curiously, one of the latter was full season leader Balrog, whose apparently comfortable lead narrowed to only 163 points. With seven games remaining to be picked (three which can be doubled), itís still a contest.

1/4 - Wow! More than two weeks have elapsed since my last blurb. Iíve really become a slacker. Hopefully my boss wonít notice.

As we head into the 16th year of RotoGuru.com, I need to set the stage for coming attractions:

  • Remember that Football Pickoff continues throughout the NFL playoffs. The weekly deadline for making picks is now the time of the first kickoff of the weekend. So that means that all four of this weekendís games will be locked in at 4:30pm ET Saturday. You cannot wait until Sunday to pick the Sunday games. Plan accordingly.
  • The left menu on this page has been resequenced to move hoops to the top, and football to the bottom. Regular weekly stats production for the NFL ceased at the end of the regular season.
  • GuruGolf will be returning in 2013. I donít yet know exactly when the season will start, but it has traditionally launched around the beginning of February. Stay tuned for details.
  • Several people have already asked about the availability of a spreadsheet for the 2013 MBL schedule. I will try to have this posted by the end of January.
Congrats to the winner of the 2012 RIFC Championship playoffs, Holt, who steamrolled from the #5 seed to claim the title, posting the highest score in each of the three playoff weeks, including a dominating 206.5 score in the final game. A RIFC Final Recap thread has been started for a retrospective on all four RIFC leagues.
