14th Annual Guess the Bengals First Pick Contest!!! Now closed for guesses.

Recommended Posts

Ok, here it is, the contest thread. Here are the rules:

1. Guess the player you think the Bengals will take with their first pick. It does not matter when that pick is, whether at 21, 1 or 37. So don't tell me they trade the pick.

2. This year there will not be a limit to how many times a player may be guessed.

3. The tie breaker will be the pick number where Jerome Baker is taken. Do not give me a team and a round, I want a number. In the event there is still a tie, there will be a second tie breaker between the 2 contestants. It will be another player to be determined at that time.

4. No "bookending" of tie breaker guesses. If consecutive tie breaker guesses have been made, the next closest guess must be at least 10 away.  For example if someone guesses 100, and someone else guesses 101, the next closest guess can be no closer than 90 or 111. Of course, this only applies for guesses of the same player.  If you bookend yourself it's your problem.  

5. Your Guess MUST be in the format of:

Board name - Guess - tie breaker, for example

Jason - Mike McGlinchey - 89

and the Guess must be the full first and last name, but don't worry, spelling doesn't count as long as it's close enough that I know who it is. 

Your guess will not be entered until it is in that format, and your tie breaker guess will not be official, so someone else can take it, and it will not be protected from bookending!

6. Once you have made your guess, you will have time to change your mind, but once your Guess appears below in this post, your choice is locked in, no changes, no exceptions.  

7. To be eligible you must be a member prior to the start of this thread, and a Bengals fan. Fans of other teams are not eligible. Members with multiple board names, please make guesses with only one of them.

8. The prize will be any ONE ITEM from the Bengals store at Bengals.com valued up to $50, and I will pay taxes and standard shipping. Based on the cost of shipping, arrangements may need to be made for winners who are not residents of the continental United States.

Guessing ENDS at 9pm EDT on April 22nd

Let the picking now begin!

It is the difference between AFC Championship games and Wild Card losses at best.  He is the next Russell Wilson.  BTW, when is the cutoff date for my pick?

I am closing the thread to guesses at 9pm on April 22.  If you are asking when your guess will be entered as an official guess, probably around 9pm tonight.

I stand by the next Rookie of the Year pick for a few more hours.

 

EDIT:  Of course with my Mod Powers, I can change my pick when I want.  That said, I will have my final pick in by 23:59 on this Friday.  

 

PS:  I hate to admit this but I would love it if they picked him.  Watched him play quite a few games in college.  Kid is electric as they come. Don't know how long he could last doing what he did in college but I will take it over what has gone on here the last 15 under boring ole Marvin.   I know Vick was not the greatest QB but when he was healthy in Atlanta it was awesome to watch.   In 2004 he was insane to watch.

I don't think I understand the tiebreaker.  Says must be 10 from the nearest pick but you have a 92 and 99 listed.  I'm going to say 85 but with a guess at 77 and 92 that would wipe out any number in between.

 

TDub - Courtland Sutton - 85

That only applies to people who guess the same player.  For a few years every time Oldschooler would guess in the contest 2 people would guess the same player with a number right above and right below, thus "bookending" him.

That's my final offer. That should help us get to a wild card game, and lose.

In case there was any confusion I will stand on my guess of Courtland Sutton. Not because I want them to draft him by any means, but more as a consolation prize if they do throw another first round pick in the shitter.  If there is a faster WR with some kind of lingering injury &/or legal/character issues, I encourage others to take that guess.  If they don't get all Redeem-y in the first round you can celebrate the player they did choose, but if they do you win fabulous prizes.  Either way your draft isn't a total shit sandwich.

Bob Barker won the Heisman? Who'd he beat out, Jim Thorpe?
