Before we get to the Super Bowl picks, let's take a quick look at how our contestants have fared over in the playoffs so far. Predictably for a Cowboys blog, our participant number went into freefall once the Cowboys were eliminated in the divisional round. We had 275 participants in the Wild card round and  259 in the Divisonal round, but only 119 BTB could muster enough energy to submit two picks for the Conference Championships.

Our Pick 'Em contest asked you to pick the straight up winners for the ten playoff games so far. And to spice things up, we used a Confidence Points scoring system where you had to give each game you picked a specific point value based on how strongly you felt about the accuracy of your selection.

If you had correctly picked every single one of the ten winners so far, you'd have gotten 104 points, which is the exact points total BTB-member Realist Larry has amassed by correctly picking all ten playoff winners so far this year. That's pretty impressive.

A few other participants came close, but nobody outside of Realist Larry is batting 1.000 in the playoffs. Here's a short summary of the leaderboard in our Pick 'Em contest, you'll find the full results of all participants at the end of this post.

Super Bowl Pick

This is about as easy as it gets: Click on the link below and select either the Seahawks or the Patriots for the win.

The link above should auto-fill your BTB user name into the entry form (in most cases). In some cases, the link hasn't worked properly, so here's an alternative link that works without the auto-fill - just remember to spell your username correctly.

Alternative Pick 'Em Entry Form

If you prefer not to use your BTB user name, or are not a BTB member, go ahead and enter a name of your choosing, but try to stick with that name throughout the playoffs.
