Pigskin Challenge: Week 15

It was a blood bath last weekend. Well... at least for Rell and Nikki. I on the other hand didn't do all that bad, and that is all that matters. It is coming down to the wire. We'll have a playoff prediction post next week. Anyway, get your picks in folks. I'm taking some chances this week with picking 4 underdogs. We'll see what happens.

Update: It was a good weekend of football. The Colts loss a game. Now, on to the Bears. Lovie pulled Orton in the second half and the Bears went from a one tune band to an orchestra with Grossman at the helm. They actually had a scoring drive longer than 30 yards. I think the Bears have just made themselves the most dangerous team in the NFC behind Seattle.

Atlanta can forget the playoffs but I think Washington just might have a chance to slip in.

Houston actually won a game - I should have picked them for the upset but oh well. They won't win another one until this time next year.

I think San Diego will be the biggest surprise in the playoffs. They gave away four games in the final two minutes of the game. Their only problem is that Denver and the Colts will have home field advantage. But I'd bet money on them to make it to the AFC championship game if they don't have to go through Indy to get there.

Now on to the standings:

James: 11-4 (not bad kid)
Rell: 11-4
Dell: 11-4
Dan E: 10-5

    must... beat... nikki
  6. nikki Says:
    you'll win this week rell, but only cuz i forgot to make my picks. DANG. blame it on the pain medication.
  7. nikki Says:
    yeah, yeah, yeah...my falcons bit it and bit it good. they're out. frankly, i think they need to be out. hopefully this will force coach to reevaluate the offense and revamp that damn defense. good enough ain't good enough when it's only good enough in the regular season.

    their secondary has been their weakest link all friggin year and coach has yet to really address it. i'm not sure if it's cuz he simply doesn't have the personnel to handle it or if he thinks folk will come into their own eventually. either way, they'll have all winter to think about it.

    meanwhile, grossman looked really damn good last night. he instantly provided chicago with the deep ball threat, which loosened up the defensive line making it easier for jones to get through the seams. they've already got the receiver in mohammed, so i can see chicago making it the nfc championship cuz that defense is still pretty good (although they'll have to do better against a balanced offensive attack, ala seattle).

    oh, and i'm gonna rebound on my pick'em next week. believe dat.

    how are the falcons out?

    There are two playoff spots left, Dallas will probably lose to Carolina and the Vikings will probably lose to the bears.

    If the falcons can beat Tampa they have just a good shot as anyone...

    I was sad for the Colts, but it had to happen sometime. Better now than in the playoffs or the super bowl. :)
  10. nikki Says:
    rell, the falcons are out. i'd be shocked if they found a way to beat both carolina AND tampa.
