We have arrived. The last week of the regular season, with half of the playoff spots in the Idiots Pool still to be decided. Once the Monday night game is done, I will either comment on or update this post with the playoff possibilities.

Picks can be made at the Google Form. Please, please, I beg of you, since it will get insanely busy this week, get your picks in early. Deadline is still Friday and 3pm Eastern but please try to get them in before Christmas. I won't be doing my usual level of browbeating later in the week because of family events, but I (and I alone) feel you owe it to me after this. I hate you anyway. Love you.

Here are the matchups in the pool:
