2013 Prediction Contest Smack Talk Thread

Recommended Posts

OK everyone, last year we had a dedicated thread for comments, smack talk (within reason and Forum rules), etc for the pick'em contest Andy runs on the boards. We had a lot of fun with this last year, so if one of the mods could pin this right under Andy's prediction post, it would be appreciated.

 

So I guess I'll start it out be saying good luck to all playing, and trying to take my title from me...you're gonna need it... :D

I don't think anyone chose the Jets to win. That team often messes up my weekly picks because I never know when they're going to win. Which side of the Jets is going to show up each week?

 

I did pick Dallas to win. I figured that it was about time they beat the Giants at home.

I've been away from the forums the past few days, so I was surprised to see that I am leading in Coltman51's group.  :thmup:  :applause:  :banana:  

 

Anyhow, I'm here to brag while I can because I'm sure it's only a matter of time before that sly, cunning CF4L bumps me off my throne. :drama:

Now you've done it shecolt..done make me fell guilty about winning last year, and now trailing behind and saying that its a matter of time until I surpass such a beautiful lady, inside and out, as you. Even though its true, it still makes me feel guilty to beat you, susieQ, and Gramz...I mean, in any other area, how can I beat such beauty, grace, and style as you 3...but...

 

*sings* I'm gonna win...nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah.... :yay:

 

Glad to have you back..we missed you.. :)

I'm out in my survival league.. hahahaha

I did exactly the same thing - picked against the Jets and then forgot to pick altogether. This five days after neglecting to pick 5 games in Coltman's pool. What an :cuss:

 

I was looking forward to the survival pool as well. Some people I worked with used to do it every year and it sounded cool, but I didn't feel like putting up the money. So here I get a chance to play for fun, and I shoot myself in the foot. :tvhammer: :Gaah:

Alas that ship has sailed. Look at my post again. And Allyouneedisluck did EXACTLY the same thing - picked Tampa like me and then forgot to pick this week. It's that dang Thursday cutoff.

 

Actually the survival pools appear to have the option of a Sunday cutoff - which in my opinion makes more sense. Why punish someone for missing a start time? They didn't derive a benefit by waiting, they just missed the chance to pick those teams. The "five minutes before game time" cutoff in the pickem pool makes the most sense (unless you are used to a 1pm cutoff like me, which is why I was in for a surprise last week when I tried locking in my picks at 12:56).

 

It's OK. The nice thing about Yahoo is it's freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. I made a new pool just for my own amusement - three strikes and a Sunday cutoff starting this week. Frankly the things about survival pools that have had me intrigued have little to do with competition - it's a puzzle that I want to try and solve, so I'll still get a kick out of it.

Sorry, i did mis-read it...I have never gotten past week 6...never for money..but it just seems like i have the worst luck when it comes to things like that...picking only one game..that's why I don't bet anymore..except for like loser buys lunch or a soda or something like that...

 

hope you do better in your new league..

Watch, I'll forget to enter this one too. : haha: By the way, Yahoo has those convenient email reminders, but I didn't want to give them my real address so the messages were sent to the new Yahoo address. For some reason I couldn't get my email program to recognize it, so the only way to retrieve them is to log in to Yahoo.

 

If I remember to login to Yahoo, I've probably also remembered to enter the pool - rendering the reminders considerably less than useless.

Isn't that nuts! :banana: I was comfortable with my upset picks, but all those comebacks and tight games falling exactly right was just ridiculous. Perhaps I should retire from the pool, because there's only one way to go. :P

 

Buying a Powerball ticket today :) and looking both ways very carefully before crossing the street . Lady Luck can be even less predictable than a football pool.

I hate the fact that I picked the Eagles tonight. I figured they would have the edge at home (in prime time) with their new offense this early in the season, but that means rooting for Vick. :barf: Why I did that to myself I have no idea.

 

I'm glad the Chiefs are up at the half, and look forward to getting this game completely wrong.

I had originally picked the Eagles for the same reason that they might have the edge being at home, then changed my pick at the last minute tonight.   So what I'm saying is....  don't give up hope that you got this pick wrong..  haha  I never get them right  :lol:

But if you never get them right, then I will, but that would be wrong. :scratch: 

 

I almost changed it at the last minute as well. One could say that I can't lose with this pick - either I get it right in the pool or I get the satisfaction of Vick losing. :gym:  I'm more inclined to think that I lose either way. Either the  :sick:  Eagles win, or the Chiefs keep the lead in the NFC West. :Gaah:

Already started with a loss...I think the Coltman put a hex on me with one of those voodoo dolls he picked up in New Orleans by some witch doctor lady..I can't seem to get anything right this year...

I do football picks on yahoo and at first picked the Eagles because they played at home. Changed my pick at the last minute to Kansas City. I like that team and hope they continue to do well. I don't much care for the Eagles. Now I'm glad that I changed over. Got it correct.

Tough picking this week. I went all home teams with the Colts & Patriots being the exceptions. My picks are far different from everyone else's. I'm either going to come back down to earth or solidify my stronghold on 1st place. Good luck all!

One more thing, to make up for being a Patriots fan trespassing in enemy territory, I'm going to pick the Colts to win every week. It actually helped me last week. :thanks:

Hey Coltman...starting to get interesting my friend....Since I believe I think we are tied again..(didn't really look that hard at the totals)..its time we can start our little "family feud" again...Now..its time to catch that shecolt...I really do I hope I win it all, but my main focus is on you my friend..the two old men battling it out for bragging rights, and another year of "HA HA" told ya so's..LOL..Maybe its time I send you another crying towel a bit prematurely :Wooo:

 

Now its getting fun again..WOOHOOO

 

Now Brent is hanging close as well....But he needs to make his picks, then go against every pick he makes, because of his perennial jinx on teams he roots or bets for..

 

Good luck this upcoming week..though I'm sure its going to be another good one...some pretty tough picks this week..

I'm making a rule, which helps some of you guys that forget.

 

If you missed the 1PM deadline, you will have until 2:15 to make your picks, but will have a 3 correct pick deduction. 

 

How does that sound?

    • Geez, I try to say "brass Titans", but it won't let me.  "brass Titans"???  What's that?  Edit.  Nope.  Edit again.  Nope.  fine.  Brass Titans, it is! Titans t. a. c. k. s.  there, take that.
    • Out of curiosity, did the judge tell you to stay 300 or 500 yards away from Mahomes at all times?
    • The Colts no longer have an edge over their division rivals.  For years the xfactor that set the Colts apart was their franchise QB.  That’s no longer the  case.  The Texans are now a more marquee team because they have Deshaun Watson.  I expect they will continue to own the division for awhile.   In fact, the Colts don’t really have that star value any more.  When an offensive lineman is your most talented player that isn’t exactly billboard material.  Darius Leonard is good but this league is full of good defensive players.    The Colts lack of a marquee caliber QB has them in danger of becoming boring. The Titans are boring too.  They have Derrick Henry whose stock is rising.  You can win games with boring but seldom does boring win championships in a league whose primary emphasis is entertainment. 
    • Id be for signing Henry weaken Titans Tannehill too if they are stupid enough to letting him go.
    • Given some of the things we've been seeing, news, quarterbacks moving their homes, etc., here is my way Way WAAAAY too early prediction of how the 2020 draft will shape out, leading up the Colts pick at 13.   Pick 1 - Bengals - Joe Burrow, QB, LSU - Nobody is surprised by this.  The Bengals want to start new.  Burrow is the flavor of the month.  I think this pick is already set in stone three months before the draft.   Pick 2 - Redskins - Chase Young, DE, Ohio St. - The Redskins don't need a quarterback.  At least, not yet!  They'll hear a lot of offers from teams wishing to trade up to get ahead of the Dolphins.  But they will be very glad to select the true best player in the draft, thank you very much.   TRADE ALERT!!!  The Raiders trade their 12th and 19th pick, along with a variety of others, to the Lions, in order to move ahead of the Dolphins.   Pick 3 - Raiders - Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama - Tua may be coming off of a dangerous and complicated injury, but the Raiders believe he will be a much more exciting QB than Herbert.  And since they're moving to Vegas, excitement is on the menu.   Pick 4 - Giants - A.J. Espenesa, DE, Iowa - Yes, they're hearing the trade offers, too.  The Chargers are banging their door down.  But they missed out on Young, and still want to get an elite pass rusher.  They'll stay put, and take their guy.   Pick 5 - Dolphins - Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon - The Dolphins were taking a quarterback.  Everybody knew it.  Unless two teams trade in front of them, they are definitely going quarterback.  Herbert may not be as good as Burrow nor as exciting as Tua, but he knows what he's doing.   Pick 6 - Chargers - Jacob Eason, QB, Washington - Phillip Rivers' change of address was a huge tell.  They need a quarterback.  Now.  And they are willing to reach to get him.  There is no way that Eason is worth the 6th overall pick.  Doesn't matter.  At least, not to the Chargers.   Pick 7 - Panthers - Jeffrey Okukah, CB, Ohio St. - It was a pipe dream to believe that an elite quarterback would fall to them at 7.  They don't truly need to replace Cam Newton just yet.  They can still roll with him for a year or two.  Take the BPA, who only happens to be an elite player anyway.   Pick 8 - Cardinals - Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama - Although it seemed like a jerk move to replace Josh Rosen with Kyler Murray, it turned out to be the right move.  They now need to give Murray weapons.  It could have been his former Oklahoma teammate, but they'll go with Jeudy.   Pick 9 - Jaguars - Isaiah Simmons, LB, Clemson - Within the once vaunted Jags defense, the linebacker play was not up to snuff.  Not anymore.  Simmons showed that he deserved to be picked in the top 10.  Jags still need a QB, but they should still be able to take one at pick 20.   Pick 10 - Browns - Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia - Last year, the Browns tried to buy their way to a championship through expensive free agent skill position players.  Now, they need to get back to brass Titans, and solidify their core.   Pick 11 - Jets - CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma - The Jets are getting their act together, but one thing they need is true weapons for Sam Darnold to work with.  They were drafting WR with this pick, whether it was Jeudy, Lamb, Higgins, or Shenault.   Pick 12 - Lions - Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn - The Lions traded back, picked up an extra 1st rounder, and still got the best DT in the bunch.  Ndomukong Suh without the rage issues.   Pick 13 - Colts - Jevon Kinlaw, DT, South Carolina - Best pick available also happens to be a need position.  Yes, they could go Higgins or Shenault.  Or reach for one of the 2nd tier QB's.  But they won't.   And that's how I see it shaping up, leading up to our pick.  How right will I bet?  Ha!  I always get surprised on draft day.
