I was seriously torn about taking San Diego in my prediction league this week. Having backed them the entire season I thought I should play the percentages.......

This is why I will not win

Was probably higher when we were 10-2 up. Might have been higher had Ginn's TD return not been called back.

Anyone see Favre's last TD pass against the Vikings? In and out of a defender's hands and into the hands of a WR. I'd love that kind of luck just once this season.

Great win for the Cowboys at the Giants, proving that they are worthy contenders this season.

Interesting to see that the Colts couldn't counce back from their defeat to the Patriots by losing their 2nd on the spin against the Chargers. Great result for the Packers as well, holding the Vikings to a no score.

Very good article on Alex Smith and the general conservative play-calling in the NFL:

I haven't looked yet, but I'm sure on YouTube there's some footage of the Utah win in the Fiesta Bowl a few years ago. They were quite a team to watch in terms of a creative offense.

Just finished watching the Bills Fins game. Absolutely gutting despite knowing the result. One of the most emotional performances I've seen from the Fins. I've often accused american football as being quite an individual, selfish sport for the players, but I've never seen so much playing for the team as that game.

Just a fair rub of the green and they'll win a game soon, I'm sure.

On the plus side... O line looked awesome!

Strathclyde Eagle 15-11-2007 04:42 PM

Sounds positive at least. :)

Hopefully it's a trap game for Philly on Sunday. They like to blitz though, so Beck might wake up feeling a bit the worse for wear on Monday.

nookiebear 15-11-2007 06:39 PM

Fish have gotta win on Sunday as I don't hold out much hope for my Redskins winning in Dallas

Missed a fair bit of last weeks action as I was over in London but back on it this week... can't wait!

Also, trying to decide if I can afford to go to Foxboro for the Pats Thanksgiving game... hmmm :D

nookiebear 16-11-2007 02:37 PM

Hmm, someone in DC is offering me tix to the Redskins v Cowboys game at Fed Ex Fields on December 30th...

V tempted...

Strathclyde Eagle 16-11-2007 03:13 PM

If I were a Skins fan and could afford it I'd be there in a second. You're talking about one of the most historic rivalries in the game, they're good to watch even if you don't support either team.

nookiebear 16-11-2007 04:06 PM

Affording it is the snag...

And I'm meant to be going snowboarding...

But I'm desperate to go now :)

jazman 16-11-2007 04:33 PM

Cowboys at home to the Redskins this weekend, in what is said above to be one of the best rilvalries in the game. Not sure what the live games are this side of the pond.

Just watched the highlights of the last few weeks which was great viewing.

Can anyone tell me who this player is. His surname is either of Dutch or South African decent and he plays in the defensive line for the Titans I think. He is like a man posessed when going after the quarterback and so pumped up it was amazing to watch.

Strathclyde Eagle 16-11-2007 04:55 PM

Vanden Bosch?

jazman 16-11-2007 05:18 PM

That's the one ... he's a nutter!

nookiebear 16-11-2007 05:30 PM

Grim Reaper 18-11-2007 06:03 PM

Jesus, just got back to place a bet on the amount of sacks in the Detroit v NYG game.

Reckon it'll be Sack City today with those two teams but cannot find anyone offering the usual o/u 4 or 4.5 sacks bet. Bolox!

If anyone knows of any online bookie offering this then put it on here.

Otherwise I might just take up Sporting Index on their Osi Unemyiora index.....and then watch aghast as Strahan gets three sacks!!

elliott 18-11-2007 07:00 PM

Turnpike Vinny starting for Carolina.

Strathclyde Eagle 18-11-2007 08:16 PM

AJ Feeley in for the Eagles against the Dolphins. Thought Feeley wasn't given a particularly fair shot in Miami, so this could be interesting.
