The NFL on SoberRecovery 2018/19



Hey Sober Pickers,

Well it's that time again, we ended last season with Nick Foles having a night to never forget at Super Bowl 52, and the new Regular Season is now upon us.

Thursday kicks off the race for those most coveted SR Staplers, and as always an enjoyable way to watch sport in a Sober way, with some healthy competitiveness, some great conversation and a few laughs, along the way.

So a run down of how it works for any Newcomers, please feel free to jump right in, each week the match ups are posted and it's all about picking the most winners per week, post your winning picks and at the end of the "football week" . . . the winner will be announced and awarded their stapler!!

Everyone is most welcome!!


Week 1

Thursday/Friday
Eagles at Falcons

Sunday
Bills at Ravens
Bengals at Colts
Texans at Patriots
Jaguars at Giants
Steelers at Browns
San Francisco at Minnesota
Buccaneers at Saints
Titans at Dolphins
Chiefs at Chargers
Dallas at Carolina
Seahawks at Broncos
Redskins at Cardinals

Sunday/Monday
Bears at Packers

Monday/Tuesday
Jets at Lions
Rams at Raiders

Well it's getting closer, I had my Fantasy draft the other night, and let's just say it could have been worse . . . the injury gods I'm sure will see me through when all the top ranked backs are laid out on stretchers . . . it always happens eventually . . . I like to play the long game!!

So I forgot to mention a tie breaker, I always forget this part (how long have I been doing this?) . . . basically we go with the last game of the week and the closest total points, without going over, wins that week, just incase we have a tie for the number of winners picked . . . so this week is:

Rams at Raiders - Total Points - ??

Also at this point I'd like to introduce our average per week competition, basically over the whole Regular Season, I get handy with a calculator and a few spreadsheets, working out on average who's ahead of the pack in terms of consistency, and yes there are a few more Staplers up for grabs . . . however this year we're gonna go for a 12 week minimum to be in the running, that's just short of 3 quarters of the season, very easy if you're in most weeks!!

A lesson in optimism below:
