    I would be afraid of the retaliation.
    LOL!

    I already have a stalker that likes to critique my posts to a fault, don't need any more.

    I predicted 16-0. It was close. I just made an error in which team I was discussing.

    I think that was the longest article I've ever seen.
    Granted only the first section pertained directly to NFL predictions.
    Funny how wrong they can be, yet sound so confident and repeat themselves the following year.
    Peter King really got ripped...always nice to see somebody called out like that.
    ;D

    Yes! I love it when they do this. There was a good Bang! Cartoon a few years ago where they tore Salisbury a new one on his predictions....it was hilarious.

    That article does show how bad Peter King sucks at life though.

    Re: Time to look back on some horrible predictions

    I predicted that miami would beat the patsies. Mostly just wishful thinking. I will now seriously predict that the 'Vikes sign Antwan Odom (DE) from the Titans and that that young TE (Mills?) will be the 'Vikes go to guy for the pass. That is if the team does not sign a vet FA. I'm serious. You heard it here first. Especially Odom. The 'Vikes WILL sign the guy.
    Tuco the world.....
