The countdown is on! This is one of my favorite things of the year and I always get so happy when I see this thread resurrected from its springtime dormancy. Thanks KK for the literally hundreds of hours you devote to running this game every year.

Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

For those of you who want to get your PEEHS fix in before then, entries for English Premier League Peehs are due by Friday @ 2:45 eastern time.

Should be fun, even if you don't know anything about EPL. The research is easy, & there are even links as to where you might want to go to research in the OP. Similar concept to the NFL PEEHS, with reveals every other week during the season & season ending questions. 30 questions, 30 people in so far.

There is also an optional £10 side bet people could partake in.

Going to try to get all the EPL Peehs people to partake in NFL Peehs when the time comes.

QUESTION 7 RECAP

Quote:
Originally Posted by KrazyKris View Post

ENTRANTS
This was the 3rd-hardest question, with 30 correct entrants, and 67 incorrects.
The average entrant score was 11.87, which was 2nd-lowest.

INCORRECT ANSWERS
J Houston (1), D Levy (3), J Watt (2), C Matthews (1), F Cox (1), J Laurinaitis (1), M Wilkerson (1), R Shazier (1), K Misi (1), A Donald (1), J Clowney (1), D Hightower (1), C Mosley (3), D Trevathan (2), C Graham (1), D Perryman (1), T Davis (1), K Mack (1), J Hicks (1), N Suh (1), L David (11), M Smith (7), N Bowman (7), J Collins (1), D Johnson (4), T Smith (5), D Jackson (1), L Timmons (2), R Jones (3)

CORRECT ANSWERS
L Kuechly (7), P Posluszny (7), S Lee (4), D Bucannon (3), A Ogletree (3), B Wagner (3), P Brown (2), J Freeman (1)

UNPLAYED ACES
K Alexander, K Alonso, Z Brown, J Casillas, L Collins, W Compton, T Jefferson, C Kirksey, B McKinney, Z Orr, C Robertson, T Whitehead, A Williamson, K Wright

THOUGHTS ON THE QUESTION
This question will not return in 2017. I try to have one individual defense-related question every year; I will think of a new one for our next game.

The 67 incorrects took 29 different players. Lavonte David was the (incorrect) SHEEP with 11 entrants, while other notable incorrects included Malcolm Smith and NaVorro Bowman.

We had a pair of 7-point SHEEPs, as 8 of the 22 possible correct answers were chosen. And 72off played this question's only ace, taking former SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDER and noted PED enthusiast Jerrell Freeman.

ENTRANT COMMENTS
We have wesrwood, who went with the RETURN OF THE MACK:

And because I know we all want to see it one last time, legend42's play-by-play sweat of the Seattle/Arizona tie game:

Quote:
Originally Posted by legend42 View Post

Bucannon backers not only needed 13+ tackles from him to break the top 20, but because there was only one spot, we also needed K.J. Wright to get 3+ *fewer* tackles than Bucannon *and* Cards SS Tony Jefferson to record 9+ (NINE TIMES) fewer tackles than Bucannon in the game (or for Bobby Wagner to get <8 tackles, but he had 9 by halftime, so no dice).

At the end of the 3rd quarter (when ARI time on defense was practically nil because of endless 3-and-outs) it was:

Bucannon: 8 tackles! (holy ****!!)
Wright: 10 tackles (oh wtf!)
Jefferson: 2 tackles

Impossible without Buc getting 14, right? Everyone is bemoaning how boring this game is, and I'm sweating every play on both sides. They all get shut out in the 4th quarter! (despite obv a huge amount of plays when they were around the ball). No chance, ever. But we get overtime, might as well watch.

In OT, Cards kick FG, Wright zero tackles! SEA drive, Bucannon FOUR tackles (one for Jefferson also) and OMG tying FG, I need one more SEA possession! But ughugh DJ runs it in for TD or stupid chipshot FG game over, bleh. DOIIIIIINNNKKK!!!!!!

Hawks drive, DEEEOOONNNEEEEEEE! Chases Baldwin oob!

And just for good measure Jefferson got a tackle, but only one. So basically perfect-perfect-perfect. Anyone want to posit on EV after 3 quarters. Had to be less than 1%. Woooohoooo. But you guys keep saying you'd rather scroll through posts until you remember your answer
KRAZYKRIS' PICK
Malcolm Smith (incorrect - 15 points)

Myself and 6 others took the MVP of SB XLVIII. He ranked 9th in combined tackles in 2015, but an injury derailed his shot at being right for this question. He got injured in Week 4, during Oakland's game at Baltimore. The next week, Oakland hosted San Diego, and Smith suited up but did not see the field. He missed being correct by 17 tackles.

KRAZYKRIS' AFTER-THE-FACT PICK
K.J. Wright

Quote:

I went through the 14 unplayed aces, and the only one I had heard of prior to 2016 was Wright. And that's only because he illegally batted the ball out the back of the end zone during that Monday nighter against the Lions. But the Seahawks never break the rules, right?

Wright qualified on the number with 52 tackles at the time of the reveal, and finished 2016 ranked 13th, with 126 tackles. Alongside Wagner, Sherman, Thomas, Chancellor, and Avril, he is part of one of the top defenses in the NFL. And K.J. Wright is the right pick here, looking back on things.

Spoiler:


My actual score after Week 7 was 96 points. My after-the-fact score after Week 7 is 8 points.

QUESTION 8 RECAP

Quote:

ENTRANTS
This was the 11th-hardest question, with 46 right entrants, and 51 wrong ones.
The average entrant score was 20.61, which was 4th-highest.

INCORRECT ANSWERS
D Baldwin (1), D Hall (1), M Jones (1), D Moncrief (7), J Thomas (3), S Vereen (1), D Allen (2), A Luck (1), C Ivory (5), M Lee (1), T Yeldon (1), O Beckham Jr (7), S Shepard (1), T Gurley (12), T Higbee (1), D Jackson (1), A Green (5)

CORRECT ANSWERS
A Robinson (20), T Hilton (6), R Jennings (6), F Gore (5), J Hill (4), A Hurns (2), A Dalton (1), T Eifert (1), J Reed (1)

UNPLAYED ACES
T Austin, G Bernard, B Bortles, L Collins, J Crowder, P Dorsett, R Kelley

THOUGHTS ON THE QUESTION
This question will return in 2017, but I might change the week (and the question) to include the Mexico City game.

Just over half the field got this one wrong. Todd Gurley was the most popular incorrect, as his poor season continued, and we will note xander biscuits' pick of Doug Baldwin one final time. Seattle was not scheduled to play in London in 2016. Oops.

Allen Robinson was the massive SHEEP, as he scored the first London TD of 2016. 9 of the 16 potential correct answers were chosen, and there were three aces (two Bengals and a Redskin).

ENTRANT COMMENTS
We have the extension of the final imperfect game:

And we have Cornboy, showing how much research is needed to succeed at the game:

KRAZYKRIS' PICK
Allen Robinson (correct - 20 points)

I did little research here and I was punished accordingly. I looked at the schedule, saw the first London game (Colts-Jags) and picked the played most likely to score from that game. But if Robinson was good enough for Priptonite, then he's good enough for me.

KRAZYKRIS' AFTER-THE-FACT PICK
Giovani Bernard

Quote:

We saw the gains made here by DrOldSchool2 and GusJohnsonGOAT. 20 entrants took Jacksonville's WR1, but only 2 people chose the WR2. There was some value in taking a less-than-obvious player.

With that in mind, the Bengals' RB2 might have been worth a look prior to the year, given that only 4 people thought to take Cincy's RB1. As it turned out, Bernard scored on an 8-yard run in the first quarter of the 27-27 tie, while Jeremy Hill notched a 1-yard TD in the fourth quarter against Washington.

My actual score after Week 8 was 116 points. My after-the-fact score after Week 8 is 9 points.

QUESTION 9 RECAP

Quote:
Originally Posted by KrazyKris View Post

ENTRANTS
This was the 8th-hardest question, with 41 correct entrants, and 56 incorrects.
The average entrant score was 14.57, which was 13th-lowest.

INCORRECT ANSWERS
Jacksonville (1), NY Giants (6), Seattle (3), Cincinnati (2), NY Jets (5), Arizona (6), Pittsburgh (14), Kansas City (1), Washington (4), Green Bay (9), Carolina (2), Detroit (3)

CORRECT ANSWERS
Indianapolis (12), New Orleans (7), Oakland (6), Atlanta (5), San Diego (5), New England (3), Buffalo (2), Dallas (1)

UNPLAYED ACES
Denver and Tennessee

THOUGHTS ON THE QUESTION
This question will return in 2017, and I will leave it around the middle of the season (so that bye weeks and strategy come into play for this Q).

The 56 incorrects took 12 different teams. Question 9 was pokergrader's first incorrect (Washington), while Detroit was correct up until the fourth quarter of Week 9's Sunday nighter.

In terms of the corrects, Priptonite extended the last perfect game with New Orleans, and Rawlz517 recorded his first correct by choosing Oakland. And the question's lone ace (Dallas) was played by 1urker.

ENTRANT COMMENTS
We have that_pope, who took Cincy (along with chuckles):

And lastly, the real real reason behind 1urker's ace.

Quote:

I took them before the injury but held on to faith in their OL (and because I'm too lazy to PM KK to change).
KRAZYKRIS' PICK
The San Diego Chargers (correct - 5 points)

Quote:
Originally Posted by KrazyKris View Post

San Diego was one of 10 teams that played 9 games through Week 9. They scored 38 against Jacksonville in Week 2, and 43 against Tennessee in Week 9. That was the high point though, as they finished 2016 with 5 straight losses. Then they departed for CARSON CALIFORNIA. GO CHARGERS GO.

KRAZYKRIS' AFTER-THE-FACT PICK
The Tennessee Titans

As I've explained earlier, I would not have taken Denver for this question. So by default, Tennessee is my hindsight pick here. The Titans played 9 games through Week 9, averaging 24 points/game. They scored at least 30 in 3 different games, and right after this reveal, they hung 47 on the Green Bay Packers.

If only they knew how to beat the Colts.....

My actual score after Week 9 was 121 points. My after-the-fact score after Week 9 is 10 points.

Re: NFL 2016 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

KK, these recaps are awesome. Is this year's contest going to be posted soon? We have about 3 weeks until the season starts.

I have to get my answers in and subsequent resubmission in, too.

QUESTION 10

Quote:

ENTRANTS
This tied for easiest question, with 81 right entrants, and 16 wrong entrants.
The average entrant score was 12.40, which was 5th-lowest.

INCORRECT ANSWERS
R Gould (1), A Franks (1), R Aguayo (1), D Carpenter (1), M Crosby (6), J Lambo (4), N Folk (1), C Boswell (1)

CORRECT ANSWERS
B McManus (17), S Hauschka (9), J Tucker (8), S Janikowski (7), B Walsh (7), D Bailey (6), M Prater (5), C Santos (5), S Gostkowski (4), C Catanzaro (3), M Bryant (2), J Myers (2), G Zuerlein (2), G Gano (1), W Lutz (1), C Sturgis (1), A Vinatieri (1)

UNPLAYED ACES
C Barth, P Dawson, D Hopkins, N Novak, C Parkey, R Succop

THOUGHTS ON THE QUESTION
This question will return in 2017; I might move the week though.

This was one of the two easiest questions, with only 16 incorrects. Mason Crosby was the most popular incorrect, and Biesterfield's answer of Robbie Gould was the worst answer of the game relative to field average.

17 entrants SHEEPed with Brandon McManus, as 17 of the 23 possible answers were chosen. There were four aces this question, including TheNoodleMan's selection of 5-time qualifier Adam Vinatieri.

ENTRANT COMMENTS
First, we have that_pope, with what we all thought of TNM's choice:

legend42 skated around the deadline and ended up with a Lutz:

Quote:

I passed Mr. Sheep!
And lastly, True North echoed the sentiments of all the McManus pickers:

2016 marked the second straight year both 64 and I took Gost for this question. Gostkowski is an 11-year vet that's led the NFL in scoring 5 times. And he kicks for one of the highest-scoring offenses year after year, so you know he's going to get his FG chances. He became a correct answer after the Pats' Week 1 win at Arizona.

KRAZYKRIS' AFTER-THE-FACT PICK
Nick Novak

Novak kicked for his hometown Chargers up until just before the 2015 season, when they replaced him with Josh Lambo. 2016 marked his second season in Houston, and he qualified twice for this question. He is best known (I think) for his OT FG back in Week 16 of the 2014 season (at San Fran), which led to this exchange (which I still chuckle at to this day):

**** YOU BOBBY FLAY

My actual score after Week 10 was 125 points. My after-the-fact score after Week 10 is 11 points.
