SportsFilter NFL Playoff Pick 'Em Champion: Jagsnumberone: The chads are no longer hanging. The scores have been tallied and the winner of the SportsFilter NFL Playoff Pick 'Em is Jagsnumberone in a tiebreaker over Bender. The coveted Costanza goes to Rumple, who heroically dug out from a -20 score after wild card weekend. Jagsnumberone, you must now end our community's NFL pick 'em season with the choosing of the pants.

Congrats, bender !!

Congrats Bender. Wear those fancy pants with pride!

Thanks rcade.

w00t! Tennessee me, please; XL! [Fitting, since my homer picks coupled with their upsets definitely made this happen.] This achievement is going up among my all time sporting achievements right next to my two 3rd place finishes in the ScandinavianFest Wife-Carrying Contest! Thanks for the fun times rcade and everyone.

I hate to do this, but there was one more chad left to fall. Jagsnumberone's pick of Fuller to intercept a pass was not counted, giving him 106 to tie Bender. He wins on a tiebreaker.

So Jags is the winner, but SportsFilter is going to buy pants of consolation for Bender as well.

Well, shit. Congrats Jags, and we still love you Bender. I assume the algorithm for the fan shop at NFL.com is going to be confused as hell when an order for both Titans AND Jags merch comes in on the same day.

The Russians, bored with US politics, have infiltrated Spofi.

Congrats to both top point / pant getters and thanks again rcade!

If necessary, it can be explained as a combined tribute to the place Brady might land and the place Ron Rivera should have landed.

First, thanks rcade for running this and, also, fixing the tally. This is like my 5th win in a pick em type of competition, but the first that included a "prize". I'm so excited. Now, if the Jags could just win something meaningful/lol. Anyway, my size would be 2x for those fine looking pants (and, of course, the team would be the Jags). Thanks again. P.S. Nice job Bender, as well.

Congrats Jag.

I just don't know what to believe any more.

Congrats, jags!

... jerk.

Sorry bender. Since you're a Titans fan, I so much want to talk some smack, but, alas, you would probably only run Henry down my throat and have him steal my lunch money. Why do I, sort of, feel like the 72 USSR Olympic basketball team?

posted by jagsnumberone at 12:26 AM on February 25, 2020

Bender's pants are in the air.

Jagsnumberone must wait, because all sizes of Jaguars Zubaz pants are out of stock.

I feel like that says something about the city of Jacksonville and I like it.

Hi Kids!

Here's a fun schoolnight brain teaser:

Look at the following picture and decide if it shows

1) People whose pants are in the air, or

2) People who have been told they must wait

My first Costanza!

Thanks for all you do, rcade
