Actually, I would have picked NE to lose. Too many injuries on offense and perfect weather for I Won as a Team. The receivers for the Pats are just not that good--as evidenc'd today. The loss of Gronk to injury and Hernandez to . . . ImagePersonal IssuesImage could not be compensated.

Cannot complain, no one picked them to go far in the Playoffs--including the Pats writers. It might have been a different game in Foxborough but, to be frank, I do not see them beating either the 49rs or Seamenhawks unless it snows all through the game which causes both teams to shit their pants. Seriously, after the Red Sox comeback including comebacks in the playoffs--I met a Detroit fan who still has nightmares about pitching to Big Papi--fanboys cannot complain.

Go Sea9ers!!111!

I chose SF to lose at Carolina last week. I chose poorly.

So this week, once I realized that I already owned Denver and I really did not want to root against St Bill et al, I looked at the NFC game. Seattle is so tough at home. So I chose SF again.

In my head only, it would appear. I can find no posting stating that pick, though I do offer these weak evidences:


swellman wrote:SD is red next to my name in the latest score update.

Retract that immediately! :HoppingMad:

As to predictions for Sunday - who the hell knows?! :dunno:

Go Hawks!


This clearly PROVES that I wanted Seattle to win. It also proves that I'm getting forgetful and did not post my unambiguous pick and therefore cannot receive points for my brilliant but unstated SF pick.

My only defense is that I misremembered posting SF (obviously from the previous week).

Thus endeth my self-serving post showing my picking prowess and a gentlemanly respect for the rules of our contest. Complete with facts and shit.

Not that it matters as I'm almost certainly mathematically eliminated but for the record I should have NO rather than SD.

Also: Some people get 24 for SF, but others like me only get 14?

All together that would give me 128 I think.

Pyrrho has SF listed twice.

What do you know . . . Pyrrho picked a team he already had. Technically his only option was NE Image Normally, I will make "default" picks, but I did not this time since so many people had options.

If there is no objection, he should get what he could only pick?
