Just want to do a little prediction contest for the playoffs picking against the spread. I’ll keep track of everyone’s records here. I’ll get the line off of yahoo. Anyways just post your picks in the comments section or send them to me via e-mail or IM. Pass this link off to others.
The lines are as follows:
Falcons are a 1.5 point favorite over the Cardinals Colts vs Chargers is a pick’em game Ravens are a 3.5 point favorite over the Dolphins Eagles are a 3 point favorite over the Vikings
My picks are Falcons -1.5, Colts, Ravens -3.5 and Vikings +3
For those of you who aren’t posting your predictions as a reply to this post but sending it to me by IM or e-mail I’ll post your name here to acknowledge your pick. If you don’t see your name let me know.
So how many people here had the Giants in the NFC Championship game? Yeah, I didn’t think so. How many people thought Eli would go deeper into the playoffs then Peyton? What a strange year it has been indeed. I am not a Giants fan but hopefully the moaning and groaning from Giant’ fans stops now about Eli.
So if you live anywhere near the NYC area all you hear on sports radio day in and day out is how Eli is not the right QB for the team. Two solid performances in a row for him hopefully will make things easier on him in the coming weeks. Give the man a break. Yes, he was drafted first overall and the Giants gave up a lot to get him….but seriously how many QBs in the league would you rather have over him? He hasn’t practiced with his #1 WR all season long so of course the flow of the offense won’t always be there but the coaching staff hasn’t helped him much with the play calling. This team lost its #1 RB heading into this year ( a blessing in disguise) yet it didn’t miss a beat. Eli and Coughlin have been on the hot seat all year so hopefully they now get the credit they deserve leading this team to the playoffs 3 years in a row and now advancing into the 2nd round.
Went 3 for 4 this weekend with my predictions and here are my early predictions for next week…..that I might change later in the week depending on the circumstances.
Now I’m listening to Mike and the Mad Dog this afternoon and they were tossing around possible particiapants in next year’s Super Bowl and that ofcourse led me to ponder my picks. Now ofcourse there are several teams on the rise like the Redskins, Bills, Bengals, Lions, Texans, etc and pretty much everyone is gonna have major personnel changes between now and opening weekend but….here’s my early picks for next season.
AFC East Jets Patriots* Bills Dolphins
North Steelers Bengals Ravens Browns
South Colts Jaguars* Texans Titans
West Chiefs Chargers Broncos Raiders
NFC East Giants Eagles* Redskins Cowboys
North Lions Vikings* Packers Bears
South Falcons Panthers Buccaneers Saints
West Seahawks Cardinals 49ers Rams
Wildcard Round Jets over Jaguars Patriots over Chiefs
Eagles over Lions Giants over Vikings
Divisional Round Colts over Patriots Jets over Steelers
Falcons over Giants Seahawks over Vikings
Conference Championship Colts over Jets Falcons over Seahawks
