I would like to thank the mods at SteelerNation, PlanetSteelers, and TheSteelersForum for kindly letting me bring over the pick contests from the Trib forum.

Here are the links to Week 15

Well, to all those that have played throughout the season at the trib, we have had to move this contest to new places. On Wednesday,December 3rd, the trib pulled the rug out from under us and shut down their forum. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to collect everyone's picks for week 14 before they pulled the plug. So, I had to scramble, and I placed links on some of the other forums where people might visit. In turn, 31 people from the original contest found their way back, but many have gone missing… I also dropped the San Diego - Oakland game from counting from counting in the tally's from week 14, since there wasn't enough time for posters to replace their picks and make It in time for that game. So, posters had 4 days to rediscover these threads in the new forums, and then place their picks.

So,after a bodycount the following posters are reported missing.

A+M=O, BigBenRocks, BigEyedFish, BrownSteel, danilope28, denobrien, dy, exNCite, Farfan, Fordy, GA Steeler, goat27, gsanche2, I,Claudius, jaj, MCHammer, oldmancurt, Raleighmike, rickt011, SaccMann, Sackdatrat92, SinCitySteeler, steelcurtain44, Steelrman, surcalifero, The Keystoner, ticheel, tim082669, toddjammin, Vermont Steeler, Vintage_Steel_Jack58

These posters have until the end of this week to find their way back to one of these forums. If they do, then I will give them a pass on week 14, and allow them to use their weekly average that they had for the first 13 weeks on week 14. So, if a poster had a .600 winning percentage at the start of week 14, they will then be given a 9 win pass for week 14 to make it fair. A .700 or higher (which only applies to Ticheel) would be a 11 week win, and so on, and so forth. However, in order for this to happen, you have to chime back in by the end of this week in one of the three forums on one of the threads. If someone out there knows any of the missing posters, and knows how to reach them, then point them back to these threads.

Also, the rules have changed.

Now, only the top 12 of the original Trib posters make the playoffs. We have 12 new posters in this contest from the new forums, and I have also opened this contest to any new posters that may wish to place their picks until the end of the regular season. The top 4 new posters from these last few weeks, will then make it into the playoffs as seeds 13, 14, 15, & 16.

Thanks to the 63 posters that participated in the Week 14 Pick-em contest that was played in the following places:

--------------------------

Once again, in order to make this a quick and painless process, so that I can tally these countless amount of picks, I would like everyone to post their picks in the same standardized form.

So, please just provide a list of the names of the winning cities in the EXACT ORDER that is listed in the schedule below..

In order to save me the painful task of editing everyones picks, if you can just copy (ctrl + c) and paste (ctrl + v) the schedule below, and delete the team that you think is going to lose, along with the "at", this will help me tally these in the most efficient way possible.

So, please don't abbreviate, or reorder the picks! Just list the names of the cities in the order below…

Now on to week 14!

Just a reminder that there Is a game on Thursday this week, with New Orleans at Chicago. If you don’t get your picks in by the Thursday games, that is ok, just get your picks in by Sunday.. If you want to change your picks for Sunday’s game, after the Thursday game is complete, please post them in a new post.

New Orleans at Chicago
Pittsburgh at Baltimore
Tampa Bay at Atlanta
Washington at Cincinnati
Detroit at Indianapolis
San Diego at Kansas City
Denver at Carolina
