Cowboys @ Eagles - Kills me having to pick against my team, especially against Dallas, but I still am not convinced by my team. And we've lost 5 straight home games.

Dolphins @ Giants - Giants are home and off a bye. This could be their last win for a couple weeks, as their schedule gets brutal after Sunday.

Vikings @ Panthers - Ponder should help make this game more fun to watch if he can build on last week, but I like Carolina with Newton more at home.

Saints @ Rams - Rams just can't catch a break in their schedule.

Cardinals @ Ravens - The 2nd round pick we got in the Kolb deal is looking better by the week. Of course, with our poor drafting, we'll likely screw it up, but at least we won't have to wait as long to do so.

Jaguars @ Texans - Tough playing on the road after a MNF game, and Houston is the better team.

Colts @ Titans - I don't expect a blowout like the Saints game, but the end result should be the same.

Redskins @ Bills - Skins are getting more and more beat up by the minute. Bils rebound at home.

Lions @ Broncos - Hard to say which team is going to show up, so I go with the home team.

Browns @ 49ers - No reason the Niners shouldn't continue their strong season through this week at home after a bye.

Bengals @ Seahawks - Dalton is having a surprise season. Hard picking against Seattle at home. Taking a chance here.

Patriots @ Steelers - I hope the Pats win, but I think the Steelers take one over NE at home.

Chargers @ Chiefs - Both teams play the opposite of how they did last week.

Indy fans picking Tennesse to win the game. You guys are laughable at best.

Being realistic about our situation is "laughable"? Do you honestly think you have to exert blind faith just to call yourself a fan? Personally I think we're going to finally win one against Tennessee, however its pretty simple to understand why many fans would predict a loss, considering we haven't had a win since last December.

yes, picking against your own team is laughable. That's the end of that.

mate, I do not agree with this mentality ok?

If a fan is picking against his own team, that is beyond discussion. I am not allowed to call out or question fans anymore, but that is definitely laughable.

NUMBER28 I couldn't disagree more. IMO what makes a great fan is being realistic (ie expecting them to lose) while still cheering your butt off for them to win.

I understand that you don't agree but you are allowed to debate and "question" other fans. Thats well within the rules, just do so without making personal remarks and insulting peoples intelligence and you'll be fine.

Pick predictions aren't about fan loyalty, its about showcasing football smarts. I picked against the Colts in NO, and I was right (and 98% of everyone else too). So does that make me a bad fan?

Unless you're just flat out saying people that don't think their team can win a certain game aren't fans?

Calling out fans in order to denigrate them or respond to their opinion in a way that denigrates them is clearly against the rules here, discussing opinions is not. Questioning opinions is not against the rules, it's all about how you do it. You can do better than simply calling someone, or their opinion laughable.

Oh, and BTW, just for the record, the expression "you guys are laughable at best" is directed at individual posters, not their opinions, which means that you insulted one or more people. Saying that the idea of Indy fans picking Tennessee to win is laughable, is not insulting to people, it merely questions the idea that fans of a team would pick against it.

Really, this isn't that hard, you just have to learn to pick your target with more care than you are using. Now, I know that this whole discussion of calling someone laughable, is laughable at best itself. But I also know that like a large oak tree grows from a small acorn, this kind of exchange can develop over time into something else.

So, please try to be more respectful of the people here, OK?

just because i choose against the colts doesnt make me any less of a fan then you. this isnt about pride for your team its how your team is doing and right now we're in shambles and a win would be very surprising. i bet not a single ram fan truly believes there team can beat the saints because its unthinkable it doesnt mean they dont have faith in there team.

Then go give away your life savings and bet the Colts by 30. Oh wait you're 17, so go give away the 3 bottle caps and the match box car and the Twinkies wrapper you have in your pocket.

Saying Tennessee wins isn't going against fandom, or the team or anything like that. Some have a realistic grasp of the situation and some think Caldwell is a good coach.

Yeah, it seems I have one game a week that my gut tells me to go against the grain. I just felt that the Steelers D would be just a little better against the Pats O, than the Pats D against the Steelers O. I only got to see bits and pieces of the game while walking around waiting for our game to start. Just wish I had more faith in my team, otherwise, I could have been 9-3.

I got 8-4....MNF pending. SD isn't helping me here. I picked ARZ to beat BAL, but that got screwed up very late in the game.

It's looking like your Eagles are finding their wings. I expect them to play strong from here on out. I expected them to struggle at first because of the adjustments that ran across the board for them. All those new FA players, new coaches (Mudd)/coaching positions. Y'all better hope Vick stays upright though.

ON THE PICK'EM, I'm 9-3 with the MNF left. Predicted the Titans-Colts game on the money, and got the 49ers game close (said 23-10, actually 20-10) and predicted that the Saints would win 31-21, but the Rams actually won 31-21. Predicted that the Steelers would win, and the Jags-Texans game was close (said 21-13, when it was actually 24-14). I think I've earned my scooby snack!

If Reid can keep the run game going like he has the last two games, that'd go a long way in helping Vick. Shady has become one of the top backs in the league. Great player to gameplan around.

    • another project lower round draft pick with a lot of dropped passes, was in the low rounds for a reason, fast but couldnt catch the ball
    • It took me a while getting used to foreign slang, sarcasm, and other stuff, but it is fun.    I still watch a lot of UK, Irish, and other TV programming. I prefer their dramas and noirs to most of US standard programming. 
    • It's a risk benefit decision. Do you want a QB that raises the level of your WRs and removes stress form your D, or a QB that lowers the level of your WRs and adds stress to your OL (time to throw) and requires your D to play perfect.....  
    • If we win next week and Houston loses, we would once again be in the lead in the South, as crazy as that sounds. Hypothetically, let’s say we win and the cows lose In order of tiebreakers: 1. Record- 7-5 v 7-5, next tiebreaker 2. Head to Head- 1-1 v 1-1, next tiebreaker 3. Division Record- 4-1 (I) v 3-1 (H) Well hot damn, somehow we may escape this impending doom. There’s my glimmer of hope for this season I’ve been searching for    
    • Expecting JB to perform like Luck is just plain silly.  There is a huge difference talent wise between the two.  2017s team was garbage.  2018 team developed nicely and Luck took advantage with TY, Inman a veteran who was signed off the street, and Ebron who had a great year.  This year it's TY and that's it and he's missed three games and played hurt last night.  Everyone else is nothing special due to the injuries.  No real weapons for JB.  Plain and simple.
