Looking forward to the late game, Ben?


Sorry this reply is so late. I wasn't no, I thought the Giants would find 1 or 2 ways to completely cock it up but I'm so glad to say I was wrong. Victor Cruz has been a revelation this season. Not looking forward to the Atlanta game though, Julio Jones and Roddy White should take the Giants secondary apart. :?:


Cruz was on fire. i couldn't quite believe how the Giants were destroying Dallas at the beginning. I thought they were throwing it all away at one point but they managed to buck their ideas up and see it out at the end.

Not sure how the Giants will do against Falcons, but I'm looking forward to seeing how St Tebow of Godshire fares against the Steelers. I'm hoping the Broncos get pounded out of site. Nobody in our division deserved to be allowed through this year :lol:

:lol:

I don't care much for the Steelers but I'm so sick of Jesus Tebow that I want the Steelers to pound them into horse apples! The problem is, Roelthisberger is still hurt and so is one of their other top players. (can't remember who because I don't really give a rat's ass about the Steelers)

Rashard Mendenhall, who is their feature back. It's a huge loss, which is why I'm picking Denver at home to upset the reigning AFC champs.

My other picks:

New York over Atlanta
Cincinatti over Houston
New Orleans over Detroit

If the Broncos are unable to get their rushing game going which will be very difficult against the Steelers D, I expect St Tebow to get his arse handed to him. Steelers by at least 14 points if that happens. My picks :-

Steelers over Broncos
Texans over Bengals
Giants over Falcons
(I've got to keep the faith) :lol:
Saints over Lions. But I hope I'm wrong on this one.

Wild Card Weekend Picks

Steelers over Tebows (injuries and all, the Chosen One is going down)
Falcons over Giants (sorry Benny)
Texans over Bengals (only because the Texans are the anti-Cowboys so I have to like them)
Saints over Lions (I liked the Lions a lot better when they were losers)

I think Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Houston, New Orleans.

Mind, the way the season's gone there should be a shock somewhere amongst them.

I was 2-2 for the Wild Card weekend.

Next week divisional games:

Ravens over Texans (the Ravens have the coolest uniforms in the NFL so they must win)
Saints over Niners (this one is really a toss up for me and I'm only picking the Saints because I like them better)
Patriots over Jesus Tebows (the Pats have no excuses if they lose)
Packers over Giants (this game could be scary though)

What the hell happened there :lol: Surely the Pats can't throw this away now. Bet they can't believe their luck.

Good win for your lot, Ben. Sounds like the Falcons imploded. I didn't see the game and was following the plays online - so what the hell were they doing not taking the field goal at only 10-2 down with 5 left in the 3rd?

I might plump for New Orleans, but do you think being out of their dome could hand it to SF?

The Niners have a really good defense and that might cause a problem with Brees playing outdoors. Especially at The Stick which is a horrible place to play in no matter what the situation. It's always windy there and often cold and damp.

I have no idea what Mike Smith was thinking and what makes it worse is that they did it TWICE without their first choice Running Back in the line-up and didn't convert the 4th down on either occasion. One of the analysts in the Sky studio said that he should be sacked because of those decisions and the one that cost them the game against the Saints in the regular season.

:) As soon as the ball hit the upright and bounced back and landed right on the 20 yard line from Matt Prater's first kick-off I just knew that Saint Timmy of Tebow and his Broncos would win that game.

Next week divisional games:

Ravens over Texans
Saints over 49ers (I really, really hope I'm wrong, you could say the 49ers are my 3rd favourite team)
Patriots over Broncos
Packers over Giants (This is going to be a good one :D But I just don't think our secondary is good enough to stop Aaron Rodgers, Nelson and friends)

Twice in that one game is unforgivable. I'd be surprised if the the fans aren't wanting his head on a stick for those calls :lol:

Saw the highlights from the game. Pittsburgh look like an old team now. Should still have had too much for that game, though.

For the next games i'll go:

Baltimore over Houston
San Francisco over New Orleans
New England over Denver
Green Bay over New York

2-0 for me so far.

The NO/SF game was as close as expected. Went to bed at 14-0 to NE against Denver, and expected to turn on and see 50 points this morning. 45 was close enough. Tebow finishing with his usual 9/26 for 136 was never going to be enough against the Patriots. What a contrast to Brady. The guy needs to get out of the limelight and knuckle down to some training.

I was 1-1 yesterday but I knew that Saints/Niners game was going to be close so I don't feel to badly about being wrong on that one.

GO PACK!

Bit of a shocker there. Surprised Ben isn't in doing a victory dance :lol: Can't believe it's the same Giants from six weeks ago.

My punt's on a New England vs San Francisco final, but i wouldn't bet the house on it.

I want a Niners/Ravens Super Bowl because I think it would be awesome to have brothers coaching off against one another.

I'd probably prefer that as i've never really been a Patriots fan - and that sibling thing would make for good media spin. I'd expect everybody outside of New England and New York fans would take that head to head.

:lol: :lol: Woo-hoo! With Swansea beating Arsenal as well, I was so happy but so nervous last night I couldn't sleep for ages, my arms and hands wouldn't stop shaking. Of course I would love the Giants to get to the Super Bowl but honestly I'd take a Harbaugh Brothers Bowl too. NYG Vs Baltimore would be great too. Anyone but the Pats.

Nope! It does not! :lol:

Stupid Packers played their worst game of the entire season last week when it really mattered! Stupid Raven kicker misses a chip shot field goal. Stupid Niner punt returner fumbles the ball. I'm stuck with a stupid Super Bowl with two stupid teams I hate! :x
