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.)
