Welcome back to the Webisphere's best Pick'Em Competition, where you have the opportunity to live in internet infamy with just 10 correct picks!
The game is simple enough; look over the NFL schedule of games for the week. Find 10 games, including the mandatory Cowboys contest, and select a winner. Make sure you're entry is in the proper format and hit submit. That's it. Simple, right? Not so fast my friend!
We saw an explosion of participation in last year's contest that I'm sure will carryover into 2013.
The contest is two-fold. Every week you attempt to reach perfection with 10 correct picks. Part two is that your scores from each week add up for the season-long contest, which was won by CowboyBaby last season, and JebediahFlibberbrush and BishopWest the first two years of the contest.
We're resetting the scorecards but most importantly, we're reviving the 10 For 10 Hall of Fame for those of you in the past that have successfully pulled off perfection. Speaking of which...

We had a great year in 2012 and look forward to even more participants in 2013. last year was so great, the Hall of Fame now requires at least 2 career 10-for-10's to enter the door! All of the one-time winners will be listed at the bottom of the post. That brings me the opportunity to throw out my thanks in advance to BTB member, Hookerhome, who will be assisting in managing all of the entries for the second straight season. As the contest has grown by leaps and bounds, we'd be lost without him and his weekly results wrap-up FanPost.
For you newcomers, don't worry... we start from scratch each year and you'll have every opportunity to etch your name into the Hall of Fame.
1 - YOU MUST PREDICT A WINNER OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS GAME IN YOUR TEN PICKS. If you leave off the Cowboys game, then only nine other games get counted, and the Cowboys game is scored as "wrong", no matter who wins.
2 - You must pick ONLY 10 games. If you pick more than 10, I will score the first nine plus the Cowboys game. If you pick fewer than 10, then you need more fingers to count on; all non-picks will be scored as wrong.
3 - You must make your entry as a comment, not as a reply to another comment. I will only go down the left margin when scoring. Anything indented will get no love here, playa.
4 - 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 all the matchups from the post, then highlight your pick for each game and hit the B button. Oh, please do me and hookerhome a favor - leave the games in the same order, and delete the extra games that you are not picking (leave just the ten that you want scored). It makes tabulation much easier.
5 - Hit the preview button, because once it's submitted, that's it - there's no turning back.
6 - Picks must be in before the early games of Sunday kickoff in order to try to score 10-for-10. Here are two exceptions:
- If you're including THURSDAY night's game in your picks but not ready to pick Sunday's games, post 'THURSDAY GAME ONLY' in your subject line.
- If you miss the early games kickoff deadline with your picks, you can still submit picks for games that have not kicked off (as long as the Cowboys haven't kicked off). You won't be able to score 10-for-10 without the early games, but that might help you in the overall season-long race.
- Don't forget to look for the "10 For 10" hub on the new front page! You'll always be able to find the latest article or Fan Post there for easy access to get your picks in!
