Rules/Instructions:

Wildcard round picks are worth 1 point each.
Divisional round picks are worth 1 point each.
Conference Championship picks are worth 2 points each.
Super Bowl pick is worth 4 points.
Pro Bowl is worth 0.5 points.

* Twist: In each of the first two rounds you are allowed one “lock” pick. If a game is selected as a "lock" you get 2 points if you are correct, but -1 point if you are wrong. This is optional. In the conference championships you can pick one game as a "lock", and if you win you get 3 points (instead of the normal 2), but if you lose you lose 2 points. For the Super Bowl, you can make a "lock" pick that is worth 6 points, but if you are wrong you lose 4 points. You can also pick a lock on the Pro Bowl where if you win you get 1 point, but if you are wrong you lose 10 points.

picks must be in before kick-off for each game.

you don't have to, but it would make tallying points easier.

Should be one way or the other way.

Theres no reason to select for more then 1 week, if you dont have to.
Your picks would be more risky, and your matchups messed up.

oh, no. pick only one week at a time.

I thought you meant pick 1 game now, a game in a few days, etc. it doesn't all need to be in one post, but definitely only pick one week at a time.
