    Must be a bad day defensively for us to lose that one.
    remember that Colts game?
    Yeah, I remember the D holding them to 18 points and an offense unable to put the ball in the endzone. Either by scores you mean FGs, or what you predict is nothing like the Colts game.

    Either way, I'm just joking, as you are.

    Predicting a loss to the Pack? Not a fan.
    pulling the not a fan card i see?
    Real fans don't question the fanness
    ?? of others.

    fans can predict a loss, but as long as they're pulling for a win, who cares.

    E-Sarcasm.

    Did anyone else think the crowd was extremely week coming into the second half? The entire energy of the building was mute and seemed to translate to the players as we allowed a score on the first drive, much like the Detriot game. They got much better though as things got closer in terms of the score.
    Were you at the game? I thought it was loud.

    The stadium always seems to be emptier at that time. Too many people wait til the last minute to enter the stadium & the entrances are all bottle-necked by people outside trying to get in.

    Predicting a loss does not mean a fan wants his team to lose.
    It simply means that fan is looking at reality & is not blinded by wearing Purple shades.

    Com'on V, you know better than that. Do you predict a 19-0 season for the Vikings every year?

    We all know that is not the case.

    Actually, when playing pick'em, I never choose the Vikings to lose. Seeing as I'm currently third in the pp.o pool. I think that's a good call!

    That's primarily because of your other picks.

    With the Vikings at 4-4, you'd still be in 3rd if you had picked them to lose all 8.

    Correct?

    I have picked the Vikes to go 8-0 and am in third.
    Picking them to go 0-8 I would still be in third.

    So, by being optimistic, I get to feel good about my confidence in my team, and still not lose any ground in pick'em. The alternative is to be a negative Nancy. Sure I would still be in third, but nobody likes that fan who boos during the bad and doesn't cheer during the good. That's the type of fan that picks their team to go 8-0.

    If I had accurately picked all 8 games, 4-4, I would have moved a total of one spot, up to second. I'd rather be an optimistic 3rd rather than a marginally pessimistic second. It's just my personality.

    Another way to look at it: I'm so damn good at pick'em that I can afford to pick my team to win every week and still beat out the majority of you yutz's. Badass.
