I'm just taking wild guesses here except for the Saints :) I haven't  been able to watch much football. But I do check out the stats when I can. 

Thank you all for this thread. I've been following it all along. This is the first time I'm taking a guess though.

Welcome MiMi-G!

Welcome MiMi.  I guess all the time and sometimes I win sometimes I lose.  As far as the Bills losing.  Here is a bit of trivia.  Of the last 21 Primetime games that the Bills have had they have lost 20 times.  A movement is starting for no more Primetime games.  But they have been entertaining though.  Cynthia I too had S. Johnson on my fantasy team and after her scored me .1 points last week I decided to bench him this week, good thing I did.

I agree - no more prime time games for the Bills.   This has nothing to do with it, but I don't like having a game on every Thursday this year.  Number one, I don't think it gives teams enough of a break if they played Sunday.  Second, I have TWC and they refuse to show the NFL Network. 

Mimi, I'm so glad you are here.  Believe me, the way this season is going taking wild geusses is probably the best way to go!

Thank you all for the welcome. I don't usually watch a whole game of football. I get too riled up :) I do check periodically on the scores and will try to catch the last two minutes of the game. My health just can't take the stress most times. I too think they shouldn't have Thursday night football. I don't understand their reasoning behind it.

Ah,ha - a Saints fan, Mimi?  I'm glad one of our teams won then.  It would really have been pathetic to go 0-5.

Man, I thought poor old Peyton Manning was going to lose to Dallas yesterday!  What a wild game that was.  But, Tony Romo, being the generous soul that he is, decided to hand over the ball at the end.   I see that the late QB of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Josh Freeman, has signed a one year deal with Minnesota.  Wonder what that means for Christian Ponder?  Not good, I'm afraid. 

Well, on to baseball ~ Sox are ahead 2-0 in their series, can put it away in Tampa later on today.  (please, please, please.....)

Oh, good grief, can't believe all of our teams lost (except for Mimi - which I say Congratulations and welcome!).  Congratulations on your winning the picks week Alex!   So sorry about your rookie QB.  But hopefully he won't be out too long.

My Giants have become a big joke.  Can't believe how badly they are doing.  A nightmare.

Welcome to our group Mimi!  I am the same way with getting too riled up during the games.  My boys won't even sit in the same room with me when Giants are playing - they say I go too crazy with yelling and they can't enjoy the game.  lol.

Thank you all for the congratulations and welcome.

One of my older brothers went to school with Payton Manning. When his team plays against the Saints my brother will cheer his team on. I feel bad for Eli his team is having a rough year. 

In week 6 I'll be rooting against the Pats Joy, I really want the Saints to go all the way to the Superbowl this year. I'm sure you are all wanting the same for your teams. 

Shew Joy, I have enough problems trying to follow football. There is no way I could try with baseball too :)
