Around the Hawk: The Debut of NFL Picks

Hello everyone, and welcome to our all new NFL Picks, hosted by me, Jerhawk. During the course of this 2008/2009 NFL season, we see many games on the schedule where you think to yourself, "Oh, that's an easy win" or "Oh, that'll be a good game"! Well, now is your chance to join me and others on the XBLN staff in our NFL Pick contest. So, starting Week 1 through the Super Bowl, we will see which one of us really knows the NFL from top to bottom, and which one of us should easily take the job of those idiots on ESPN and other "experts" who pick the games. We are the true experts! Here are the rules, and they are rather simple:

-Each week you will either leave a comment, send me a message on Xbox Live!, or send me an e-mail of your picks/winners for the games for that week.

-Each correct pick will earn you 1 (one) point during the regular season.

-If you manage to pick every game correctly, you will receive 10 bonus points

-If you are dumb enough to get every pick wrong for that week, you will be eliminated from competition.

-Your picks must be in by midnight on Wednesday night (Pacific time) for them to be eligible. Picks after that won't count. The reason I make them Wednesday is because of those weird Thursday night games which mess everything up.

-The pressure will heat up for the Playoffs, so if you can't handle the heat, get out of the oven! People will be eliminated during the Playoffs, games will become worth more, and so on. I will give you those rules when the Playoffs come.

So, that's about it in a nutshell. Do you have what it takes to be crowned TheXBLN.com NFL Pick expert, or are you just an average fan?

If you'd like to join the competition, just post a comment on this post, send me a message on Xbox Live, or send me an e-mail and you will be signed up and ready to go! A week before the start of the regular season the sign-up process will end and the picking frenzy will begin! Your contribution would be of great importance, so please don't hesitate to sign up. Good luck, and thank you for choosing TheXBLN.com!
