Hi all~

Just a heads up:  Starting next week, the first games of the week will be played on Thursday.  So get those picks in early! They will of course be played on NFL Network, which not everyone (including me) has access to.  The good news is that none of those games have either Buffalo, Chicago, NY Giants or the Patriots playing.  Phew!

 

Byes: Carolina, Detroit, Jacksonville, Minnesota

Sunday, Nov. 4

Monday, Nov. 7

Hopefully Bettyjean and I will be talking to each other after the Giants/Patriots game this week.  :)    Good luck everyone!

lol. It's ok, Joy & Cyn - I don't think I've heard one sports analyst pick Giants in this one either...  but I gotta go with the heart here.

  • Chicago@Philadelphia - Philly - Cyn - Picking Philly kills me -  I really, really want Chicago to win this one.  But I think Eagles are getting on a roll.

No hard feelings about picking Philly Bettyjean. Yeah I know they're on a roll right now and with being in Philly its gonna be a tough but good game I think. I'll be wearing my halloween socks. I know that day is passed but when I starting wearing my socks they started winning. Guess I'm superstitious that way. Yeah I would like to see Cruz's salsa too:) Think Indy is in a battle with Miami to see who will go winless. Didn't realize Manning made that much of an impact????

ETA: Cruz salsa I just had to see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8j1jkYAmIs4

Happy Belated Birthday Cynthia!  And I won't laugh because I too believe in lucky socks & shirts... I did the same thing (wore same old ripped sweatshirt) the year the Giants won the Superbowl!  

p.s. thanks for that link Cynthia - brought a smile to my face.

Thanks for the bday wishes Bettyjean:) Guess I need to wear my Bears sweatshirt if that means we'll get in and win the superbowl. LOL:) You're welcome for the link. I just had to look it up to see what u were talking about. I had heard about it but hadn't seen it. Guess I need to watch more of that ESP (N) like Joy:) Hee-hee.

Let me be the first to congratulate you, Bettyjean, on your Giants win over the Patriots yesterday.  (smiling but gritting teeth -  just a little)  Your guys obviously played better, but it would have been nice if the win didn't turn out quite so much as the Giants win over us in the Super Bowl a few years ago.

Alex, I'm so sorry the Bills didn't win.  It's always good to have the Jets beaten at any time, but especially when they play your team.  Patriots head to the Meadowlands next Sunday night.    :(   At least we are all still in first place.

Good luck, Cynthia, and I hope they win, cause my correct picks are going south faster than the poor Indianapolis Colts!

Thank you all for your condolences.  I am still miserable from losing to the Jets.  What makes it worse was that the game was not even competative.   Hopefully we can bounce back and beat Dallas.  Everyone is entitled to an off day which I hope was this past weekend.

Goodness Cyn!  Those socks are potent.  Even though I picked Eagles, I was cheering for your Bears.  I don't think I've watched a Bear game this year(maybe not in my zone) and they are looking pretty good.  Cutler got to stand in the pocket forever and I had to laugh at his crazy acrobatic 1-legged spin- lateral-throw. But it worked!  And any team that beats the Eagles are friends of mine. lol.

Alex - sorry about Buffalo.  Don't worry, I think they will rebound against the Cowboys too - Romo goes up & down like a yo-yo & he just pulled off a win.  Unless you're Green Bay, they all had games like that - games they should win, but the wind blows wrong or something.  I still can't believe we lost to both Washington AND Seahawks!  

Joy - Thanks for being a good sport.  I actually didn't see the final seconds live .. I was so sure we were gonna lose, I covered my face with my hands & just listened.  I don't think my heart can take many games like that one.  And even after we scored, I still thought Tom was gonna do his Tom thing and manage to pull off that win.  He's done it so many times before.

Ur welcome Alex. I'm sure ur Bills will beat Oh No Romo:)

Bettyjean I swear I wash the socks. LOL. Yeah I'm gonna look pretty stupid wearing halloween socks in December. They'll think I've totally lost it. Ha-ha:) Glad u were entertained by the Bears game. I should've had Cutler in on my fantasy league. Doh!

Joy thanks for the uplifting cheer for next weeks picks:) I'll need it for sure! And u tied for 1st w/Bettyjean.
