The FanIQ Sunday Pregame Show
So we're going to start doing a collaborative style of NFL Sunday open threads, and I thought some of you might be interested in participating.

NFL Network, ESPN, Fox, and CBS all have their pre-game shows where the blowhards make their game picks and give an explanation of why they think each of their picks will win. 

What I would like to do is a pre-game FanIQ style kind of like this. Each week we'll pick one of you to do the pregame with. I'll have you send me your picks for the week with reasons for each pick so I can post it in the blog. On Sunday morning I will post the thread that will contain our "pregame" of sorts and we will use that for our open game thread. (Of course, I will need to have the participant's picks on or before Saturday - preferably Friday nights when Seahawks play at home.)

Please let me know below if you want to do this - and you're more than welcome to volunteer for more than just one week!

I'll be editing the format of any of the replies as needed to fit Featured Article criteria since the Sunday threads are pretty popular and show up on the front page, and are promoted through Facebook and Twitter as well.

I'm agreeing to do this, but still unclear as to how it works. Idk if I'm required to be on here on Sundays before the games and I wouldn't want to be on here any time my team is playing. I'll see how this works and most likely it will not be a problem..

Nope, I would just have you send me your picks (and blurb explanation) by Saturday - preferably Friday nights when the Seahawks are at home since those are busy weekends in Seattle for me - and they'll show up in the blog introducing the thread basically. The thread itself is for whoever shows up during Sunday's games to chit chat about them, you wouldn't need to be here (I won't be there half the time).

Actually the Seahawks have the MNF game so I'll be here this weekend - I have Monday and Tuesday off.

Also - we'll notify the participant for that week probably Tuesday/Wednesday-ish. I think we already have the first couple of weeks in order, so I'll shoot you a message when it's your turn cheeky

lol it won't be any different than the game threads now as far as that's concerned. This is just going to be a little different way of doing the actual blog that we use to open up the threads (which would be cool to get a little more participation in too, btw...)
