Our playoff predictions: Morelli graded high in 2014



Football Zebras commentary

Part of our annual tradition is to predict which referees are assigned to the postseason and the Pro Bowl. Unfortunately, there are several outside obligations that have prevented us from doing a full rundown. So, without further elaboration, here are our selections:

Ben Austro Mark Schultz
Super Bowl   Pete Morelli   Pete Morelli
Conference Championship   Carl Cheffers   Clete Blakeman
  Bill Vinovich   Tony Corrente
Divisional Playoffs   Tony Corrente   Walt Anderson
  Bill Leavy   Ed Hochuli
  Pete Morelli      Pete Morelli
  John Parry (1)   Gene Steratore
Wild Card Playoffs   Walt Anderson   Jerome Boger
  Clete Blakeman   Bill Leavy
  Jerome Boger   Terry McAulay
  Ed Hochuli   John Parry (1)
Pro Bowl   Gene Steratore   Carl Cheffers
  27 27


We will score the predictions as follows: 5 points for a correctly slotted referee, 3 points for selections off by a round, 2 for two rounds, 1 for three rounds, and 1 point each for a Pro Bowl guess who works the playoffs and a playoff guess who works the Pro Bowl. (Ties broken by the number of correctly slotted referees, then by scores in each round in descending order.)
