So, as was the case with past two seasons, order of finish will determine selection order for the playoff rounds of this game.

 

In each round of the NFL playoffs, all teams playing games that week will be part of a selection pool.

The HIGHEST ranked player will select their winning team for that week first, then the next highest ranked player, and so on until all players have a unique team picked. For the purposes of the NFL playoffs, players will NOT be allowed to select the SAME team as anyone else. This is why our 'regular season' mattered. It set up the picking order for the playoffs.

After that week's playoff games are done, those who picked winning teams will get to pick teams the following week. All those who pick losing teams will, as in the real NFL playoffs, be eliminated from further playoff action. The game will continue either until there remains one single winning player or the end of the Super Bowl, depending on who 'survives' each playoff round. It is also possible with this system that, under a certain set of circumstances, that no players will remain.

Each week of the Playoffs is basically a 'new game' with the changing 'Selection Pool' so players are free to choose different teams for each proceeding round.

 

For this First Round, due to the number of potential players (7), the player who is 'up' will be on a 24 hour clock to post their selection.  IF after 24 hours the player who is 'on the clock' hasn't made their pick, then the NEXT player in line is free to make their selection.  The previous player can still pick, but risks not being able to select the team the new player 'on the clock' can select.  

 

The First Playoff Round post will be up after the end of the Packers/Lions game.  Watch for it, and watch this thread for quick updates, especially during this First Playoff Round!

At Midnight EST, Monday, January 2, the Elimination Game Playoff Round begins!

 

Here's the games and the teams:

 

AFC  Wild Card Games

 

6. Miami @ 3. Pittsburgh

5. Oakland @ 4. Houston

 

NFC Wild Card Games

 

6. Detroit @ 3. Seattle

5. New York G  @  4. Green Bay

 

 

Eight teams in the pool (Alphabetical Order)

 

Detroit

Green Bay

Houston

Miami

New York G

Oakland

Pittsburgh

Seattle

 

So, I (Mojo), as the First Place finisher in the regular season, gets to select from the pool first.

 

I would be allowed 24 hours to pick, but I don't need the time.

 

I will choose.. the Pittsburgh Steelers

 

This mean that now, the Second Place finisher for the season, Gerrard, is 'On The Clock.'

 

@Gerrard You have a maximum of 24 hours to make your selection.  If you select within the time allotted, the NEXT player to choose will be Riverhippo, the Third Place finisher.

 

Gerrard, you can pick any team except for the Steelers.

 

Good Luck!

Just had lunch, then checked the net and saw we have another selection! 

 

Fantastic!

 

To quote Pinkie Pie:  "Okey, Dokey, Lokey!"  Tacobob has just picked Miami!

 

@brianblackberry you are now on the clock!   You have 24 hours to make your selection and you cannot pick the Steelers, Packers, Texans or Dolphins!  After you select, then it's SteelEagle's turn!

 

If Brian doesn't select in the allotted time, then Steel will be able to pick.  Brian could still pick, but will be at a disadvantage if Steel picks ahead of him.   At that point, it'll be 'first come, first serve' for team selections.

 

Good Luck!

And since more that 24 hours have gone by with no pick from Brianblackberry, we now open up the floor for Steel:

 

@SteelEagle you are now 'on the clock'!  You have 24 hours from now to select a playoff winning team from the pool, but you cannot choose the Steelers, Packers, Texans and Dolphins. 

 
Brian can still pick, but from now on, selections will be 'first come, first serve,' between Brian and Steel.
 
Icestorm will be 'on the clock' next, after either Steel picks his team, or his 24 hours run out.
 
Good luck!

 

Quick Summary (teams chosen so far):

 

Steelers:  Mojo

Packers:  Gerrard

Texans:   Riverhippo

Dolphins:  Tacobob

 

Who's available at this moment:

 

Raiders

Giants

Lions

Seahawks

And now, to no one's surprise, SteelEagle has selected the Seattle Seahawks!  So, now the next player in line has the opportunity to make their pick for this week's Playoff Round:

 

@IceStorm you are now 'on the clock.'  You and Brianblackberry are now free to chose any of the three unclaimed teams for this week's Playoff Round:

 
Raiders, Giants or Lions
 
First post, first served from now on between Ice and Brian. 
 
All remaining players have until the kickoff of the first Wild Card Playoff game (Oak/Hou at 4:35pm EST, Saturday, Jan 7) to make their selections to participate in this week's game.
 
Keep in mind, ONLY those players with WINNING teams will advance to next week's NFL Elimination Divisional Playoff Round.  In other words, if you don't play THIS week, you don't get to pick NEXT week.
 
Such is the way our Playoff Rounds have operated these past three years.
 
Good luck to all!

Looks like the results of the NFL Wild Card games are in:

 

First result is, Brianblackberry is no longer eligible to play due to not selecting a team this weekend.

 

Next, Houston's win over Oakland puts Riverhippo into the next round.

 

Seattle's victory over Detroit sends SteelEagle to the next round as well.

 

Pittsburgh's win over Miami sends me (Mojo) on to the next round while, sadly, eliminated Tacobob from the playoffs

 

Green Bay's victory over New York put Gerrard into the next round while, alas, eliminates IceStorm from the playoffs.

 

 

 

Next week's Divisional Playoff games will be as follows:

 

Houston Texans at New England Patriots

 

Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs

 

Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta Falcons

 

Green Bay Packers at Dallas Cowboys

 

 

We will be selecting in the same order as the regular season finish:

 

1. Mojo

2. Gerrard

3. Riverhippo

4. SteelEagle

 

Selection will begin when the GB/NYG game officially ends
