2014 POTTEDPLANT MEMORIAL NFL POOL

Recommended Posts

I think if there was a game where the Raiders might sneak up on someone, it may be tonight--or it could be the game with the Bills (I know Rick probably doesn't want to hear that)....

With the Bills it may depend on where they are when it comes. If they beat the Jets and Cleveland they would non doubt still be in the conversation. We split with Miami and only because the refs did us in on that safety and pass interference. In my mind we are better than Miami, in the trench's and on D for sure. The QB position is debatable. We still may finish ahead of your team. That last game should have been ours. We will bury the Raiders if we are still alive. Raiders are not as bad as their record I am sure. They may win tonight. Not as good as KC but its the nature of the beast. The NFL is so unpredictable, just look at last week's scores. The Rams are a team on the rise. I would have picked them to win that division had Bradford not been injured before the season. Now they are starting to show that they are Ram tough

Kansas City tonite

Grow some balls and pick the Raida's. I like your boys alot this year. I am cheering for them to go all the way to the Super Bowl and win it as long as by some miracle Buffalo is not on the other side. Go Lions.

With New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo saying it would be "impractical" for the Buffalo Bills to host the New York Jets as scheduled on Sunday, given the heavy snow that has hit the area, the NFL is apparently considering moving the game to another city.

The three sites under consideration are Detroit, Washington D.C. and Pittsburgh, according to the New York Post. In that scenario, the game would be played on Monday.

If this happens, it doesn't look like home field advantage incentive. Could change the odds of the outcome. Isn't home field like 3 points on the odds?

Thanks. I know I am the only one that picked the Raiders. Have watched this game since the 60's and know that Murphy's law always applies. Strider, what the hell? Your team bro. I stand alone.

Buffalo and Jets is off the board in Vegas. Wonder if the Bills will still be 4 pt favorites? Doubt it. Could not practice for one thing. I do not have a clue if they have flown to Detroit yet? Likely today

Missed the game as well as missing the pick haha. Actually KB, I was kind of hoping for 0-16 season for the Raiders. Something historically bad that would force a total overhaul. I'm not sold on Reggie McKenzie as GM and definitely not sold on Tony Soprano as head coach.

Yep...me and Abe Vigoda, ;)

What surprises are in store for us this week?

Thursday Nov. 20

Kansas City...and it's the wrong one boyo. Raiders blew their chance at history.

Sunday Nov. 23

Atlanta

Philadelphia

New England

Green Bay

Indianapolis

Houston...it really doesn't matter who I pick in this game...whichever team I pick, the opposite will happen.

Buffalo...more weirdness. I'm giving Buffalo another shot...only because the Jets truly stink.

Chicago

Seattle...Seattle's season is on the line...the next two games are must-wins.

San Diego...I came close to picking the Rams against Denver last week but didn't have the guts to pull the trigger like Rick did. Still not sold on them out of their dome.

Denver...I don't think Miami can exploit Denver's defense like the Rams did.

San Francisco

Dallas...this pick scares me, but like the Jets, the Giants are stinking up New York/New Jersey.

Monday Nov. 24

New Orleans...come on Saints, win one for Bret!

We are heading into the home-stretch of the season, folks. Time is running out for making up serious ground on the leaders. It is going to call for some gutsy picking...going against the grain of conventional wisdom.

2) THREE GAMES ON THANKSGIVING DAY!!!!

Thursday Nov. 27 (Happy Thanksgiving Football Day!)

Chicago @ Detroit

Philadelphia @ Dallas

Seattle @ San Francisco

Sunday Nov. 30

Washington @ Indianapolis

Tennessee @ Houston

Cleveland @ Buffalo

San Diego @ Baltimore

Cincinnati @ Tampa Bay

Oakland @ St. Louis

New Orleans @ Pittsburgh

Carolina @ Minnesota

Arizona @ Atlanta

New England @ Green Bay

It feels good to join the winner's circle. Hopefully I have another good week in me...

Detroit

Dallas (A big game, to say the least. Are the Boys truly ready for big game pressure situations?)

San Francisco

Indianapolis

Houston

Buffalo (Here I go, picking the Bills again :rolleyes: )

Baltimore

New York Giants (What a game *gag*)

Cincinnati

St. Louis

Pittsburgh (As up and down the Steelers have been, this is one they probably lose)

Carolina (Another contest between 2 mutts)

Arizona

Green Bay (Is Aaron Rodgers better than Tom Brady?)

Denver

Miami (The Jets certainly seem to get a lot of these primetime games. I'm with you Sean--it baffles me too)
