We're down to three weeks left in the regular season for 2011, which means scores of folks are running out of time to climb the 10 for 10 leaderboards. With five entrants within three points of each other at the top, we could easily see a first-place tie at the season's end. Do any of the guys at the top have the guts to make some crazy picks in an effort to outsmart the competition? Our 2010 season champion tried that technique to make up some ground in Week 14.
Week 15 brings us four days of football, as the Thursday night contest is augmented on NFL Network by Saturday's visit to Tampa Bay by our Dallas Cowboys. If you don't have the network, you might want to think about following me on the BTB account, @BloggingTheBoys, as I'll be live-tweeting the game. The Thursday game should be interesting, at least for a while, as we will all be rooting for Jacksonville to knock off their second-consecutive NFC South opponent, the Atlanta Falcons. I doubt, however, that Jacksonville will make their way into many of our 10 For 10's.
No one was able to join the Hall of Fame last week, as 10 entrants were a perfect 9-for-9, but picked the Cowboys to defeat the Giants and we all know what happened there. For more insight into last week's results and trends, check out hookerhome's FanPost here. It's quality reading.
Here's a look at said Hall Of Fame. Do you have what it takes to join the elite?

1 - You must only pick 10 games. If you pick more than 10, I will score the first 10. If you pick less than 10, then you need more fingers to count on; all non-picks will be scored as wrong.
ii) You must make your entry as a reply to the post, not another comment. I will only go down the left margin when scoring. Anything indented will get no love here, playa.
B: You must include the entire matchup in your entry. Simply BOLD the team in the matchup you are picking to win. No lists of only the winners you pick. If you want me to take the time to score your entry, take the time to format it correctly. It's easy, just copy and paste the matchups from the post, then highlight your pick and hit the B button.
3. YOU MUST PREDICT A WINNER OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS GAME IN YOUR TEN PICKS. New rule for 2011 and front page status.
D - Hit the preview button, because once it's submitted, that's it- there's no turning back.
D v2.0 - Picks must be in before the early games of Sunday kickoff. No exceptions. If you're including Thursday night's game in your picks but not ready to pick Sunday's game, post 'THURSDAY GAME ONLY' in your subject line.
