12/18 - The final two games of NFL Week #15 were quite a contrast. Sunday nightís 41-31 win by the 49ers in Foxboro was one of the most watchable games of the season. And then there was the Monday night game Ė about which the most favorable thing you can say is, ďIt was close.Ē

About 55% of Football Pickoff slates produced positive scores this weekend. The top score of +587 was by KDogHall, with 14 correct picks. He celebrated by going out and closing on his first house. I know this because he also happens to be my son.

The top two seeds in the RIFC both lost this weekend, setting up a championship game between the #5 and #6 seeds. The AA league has the same #5 vs #6 matchup. But in each of the AAA leagues, the top seed is still alive, with #1 vs #3 and #1 vs #7 matchups pending. Good luck to all.

12/11 - Fantasy football leagues typically finish with a single-elimination playoff bracket, and the RIFC leagues are no exception. Itís not a particularly fair way to reward full-season excellence, but itís traditional, and some say that itís part of the appeal of fantasy football, because if you can get into the playoffs, anything can happen.

This year, the four #1 seeds in the four RIFC leagues all survived (barring any Thursday morning stat changes). Two of the #2 seeds lost, two of the #3 seeds lost, and three of the #4 seeds are now gone. I think itís somewhat unusual to have all of the #1 seeds survive round one. I know that in each of the past two seasons, the #1 seed in the RIFC lost its first round playoff game. And this year, it was a very close call (decided by less than 3 points.) Itís maddening to steamroll though 13 weeks only to have it all go up in smoke in one weekend. So to those of you who met an untimely demise this weekend, my condolences.

Football Pickoff is no such animal, as it rewards consistent performance over the entire season. No single week assumes elevated relevance. Less than 40% of slates posted positive scores in week #14, headed by last yearís champion, blondiescookies2, who scored +481 points on 13 correct picks. But most of the full-season leaders fell back a bit this weekend.

12/5 - Just under 40% of Football Pickoff results were positive this week, but that didnít stop Balrog from getting 14 correct picks for the weekís top score of 564. More importantly, it propelled him to the top spot in the YTD standings, as second place wk managed to get a zero the hard way.
