NFL 2017 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

Hello football fans and hello SE!

For the sixth consecutive year, and fifth straight under my watch, the season-long PEEHS game has returned!

As we all know, you can't know where you're going, until you know where you've been. Here's a look back at the previous five games:

Jeremy517/nath era
The 2012 game (20 entrants) won by gusmahler

KrazyKris era
The 2013 game (51 entrants) co-won by alwarde4 and DrunkIrish05

The 2014 game (70 entrants) won by chim17

The 2015 game (86 entrants) won by chuckleslovakian

The 2016 game (97 entrants) won by pokergrader

There will be 25 total questions; 1 per week for the first 16 weeks, and then 9 for the end of the season. Also, once again there will be 13 questions about teams, and 12 about individual players.

RESEARCH IS ALLOWED, AND ENCOURAGED. Do as much reading as you want before submitting. Beware though, if your entry includes [redacted former NFL city] or [redacted recently retired WR] or [redacted former 2nd-round draft bust kicker], you can bet you'll be greeted with.....



THE CLUB IS RETURNING FOR 2017! DON'T YOU DARE JOIN IT!

SCORING
This is PEEHS. The winner(s) will have the lowest total score after all 25 questions have been scored and revealed. PEEHS rewards those of you that submit a correct answer that is guessed by as few entrants as possible.

*** BEGINNING THIS YEAR, A QUESTION'S OVERALL SHEEP WILL BE USED TO DETERMINE INCORRECT SCORES. IT DOES NOT MATTER ANY MORE IF THE SHEEP IS CORRECT OR INCORRECT ***

Incorrects will be scored as (SHEEP score for that question) + (# of different correct answers submitted for that question).

ENTRIES
Anyone can play; all I need is a PM with your entry. Please single-space your entry, but I'll accept both numbered and non-numbered submissions.

Entries close on Thursday September 7th, once the Chiefs and Patriots kickoff from Foxboro. As usual, I'm sure many of you will wait until the last minute to enter, so once again here is my procedure as the season-opener nears:

1) No new entries will be accepted once the Chiefs and Pats kickoff, but you can make as many revisions to existing entries as you need.

2) If you submit close to (but before) the season-opener, and I respond after the game kicks off (to tell you that you need to edit your entry), then you still have time to edit and resubmit (but you can no longer edit answers to include Chiefs- or Patriots-related answers).

All entries will be locked and stand as submitted once the early games kickoff on Sunday September 10th.

KRAZYKRIS
For the fourth straight year, I am playing. This year, JMurder3 has agreed to be my verifier. I met JM3 last summer in Vegas, as we had lunch in the food court at the MGM Grand. He's a great guy (if you can ignore that whole lawyer thing hahaha), and is looking forward to confirming my answers in the weekly reveals (I hope). I have emailed my answers to JM3, who has agreed to open the email after he submits.

And for one final time, thanks to SirRawrsALot/Rawlz517, who was my verifier for the previous three seasons. Cheers!

Please ask away in the thread, or send me a PM, if you have any questions. Good luck to each and every one of you!

I want to see 100 entrants! I really think this is the year!

Confirming that I am happy to verify Kris's answers, & Kris is also a very nice guy irl (& has a nice family), & doesn't even have the downside of being an attorney.

Alright so all I have to do is not get last and I'll call that a successful title defense.

Re: NFL 2017 SEASON-LONG PEEHS

For Question 6, if my team has the lead at the start of the 4th, they lose the lead in the 4th, and then go on to win, does that count?

Or do they have to be tied/behind at the start of the 4th?

Won't open Kris's answers until the season starts, though.

I'm always after continuous improvement, so we'll try this for at least 2017 and see what happens. It was time for a change - there were too many incorrect SHEEPs last year.

Thanks! My only exposure to the law though is Suits. If that was my profession, I'm sure I'd end up fired like Harold.

Tied/behind only. However, if your team trails entering the 4th/then takes the lead/then falls behind again/then wins, that is a correct answer.

Yeah, I often struggle to come up with 25 'good' questions, 1 or 2 of them end up being more about 'luck' than 'skill'. We'll see what happens.
