Look at those Redskins go :) 2&0 and a 20-12 win in Philly

Giants at home next, I fancy the Skins to go 3&0

Strathclyde

Seeing as it's just down to me and you on the Survival game there's two ways we can do it.

a) both continue to pick sensible picks until one of us get shafted by something like San Diego -17 losing at home to Kansas

OR

b) I pick the Jets this week and you pick the Dolphins and we'll have a winner nice and quick PLUS the addded bonus of whoever the winner is, gets to smirk at the fact THEIR team won it for them.

Are you up for option b) ????

I've made a very sensible pick thus far but am happy to pick the Jets if you do Miami

Strathclyde Eagle 20-09-2007 08:47 PM

I'm loyal, not stupid. ;)

I've picked New England this week.

BTW apparently the Jets are only given 3 or 3.5 points by Vegas this week (can't remember which). Can't believe that if I'm truly honest.

Think you might like Bill Simmons' new weekly podcast where he and a friend try to guess the weekly lines. Strangely addictive and easy to join in with in the car.

Grim Reaper 21-09-2007 10:17 PM

Well that kind of makes it dull as I went for New England as well.

Surpised you're so down on Miami's chances.

Granted Jets did the double last year but both games were by 3 points. Miami with 3.5 might come in.......which I'll be happy with as long as Jets win.

Strathclyde Eagle 21-09-2007 10:43 PM

The Fins won't be coming in. Zach Thomas is out with a concussion now (announced earlier this evening).

Grim Reaper 21-09-2007 11:28 PM

Good job - he put in some big hits on NY players on Xmas Day last year IIRC!

Grim Reaper 23-09-2007 06:41 PM

No sign of Strathclyde????

Maybe he'll appear when Miami level things up in a minute

Grim Reaper 23-09-2007 06:47 PM

98 YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARDS!!!!

The Official Jets 'Offensive Play of The Year' for 2006 was Leon v Miami.

Reckon Leon v Miami might win that award again. :-)

Grim Reaper 23-09-2007 06:49 PM

Miami flying downfield again now

Are we on for another legendary Week 3 game???

Grim Reaper 23-09-2007 06:57 PM

Philly's Kevin Curtis 144 receiving yards in 16 mins!!!

On target for a 500+ yard game!!!!!!

Grim Reaper 23-09-2007 08:30 PM

Love it. It's taken 24 years but I've actually cheered a Dolphins point against the Jets, or, more specifically TWO points.

The 2 pointer brings in the o17.5 2nd half points bet.

Nice fake from Trent Green to set that up. :-)

Mega comeback from Miami and Tony not around.

Grim Nostradamus gets it spot on yet again.

Fins. Season. Over. :(

LLCOOLSTEVE 24-09-2007 01:15 AM

Loved the old Statue of Liberty 2 point conversion

Green Bay are surprising a few people by the sounds of it.

Given how last weekend worked out I decided to have a sport-free weekend. Feels extremely odd in all honesty, although a great deal more relaxing.

We got 424 total yards against you. :eek: How bad is your defence?

(Not as bad as our special teams coverage, obviously.)

Grim Reaper 24-09-2007 11:44 AM

The Jets had a wonderful ability to be ranked 20th or lower in just about everything last year yet still win 10 games and make the play offs.

Ronnie Brown best player on the pitch (as he was in the same fixture last year) yet ends up on the losing side.

All part of the magic of ERIC MANGINIUS!

Funny you should ditch sport for a weekend - just had my best sporting weekend since god knows when with Jets, Giants, Hull (rugby) Palace and Bayern all winning. Hell I even had a guest give me a winning horse tip at 9/1!!

So, come on Tony, join in. J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!!

All part of the magic of Penaltius Maximus, more like. (Latin for 'Cam Cameron', in case you were wondering.)
