    Re: Are they serious? ESPN Week 11 Picks

    If I had a choice of two fairly evenly matched teams I just didn't care about, and wanted to win.....I would pick the home team.

    Also have to add which I forgot to add in my orig post, it is 2 evenly matched teams with losing records. That is another reason to PICK the HOME TEAM.

    I smell an upset!!!! Skol Vikes!

    Re: Are they serious? ESPN Week 11 Picks

    Why is this even shocking?

    Green Bay has a much higher ranked Offense.
    Green Bay has a much higher ranked Defense.
    Green Bay is at home.
    Green Bay has been competative in every game they've played.

    Minnesota's Offense is anemic.
    Minnesota's Defense is gives up lots of points.
    Minnesota is playing on the road, on grass, in the cold.
    Minnesota has been completely blown out in every loss, except 1.
    Minnesota has squeeked by in every win, except 1.

    Based upon statistics, location, and performance, the obvious choice is Green Bay. If I weren't a Viking fan, I would pick Green Bay.

    Winning, for us, requires that we fullfil a number of Maddenesque "Duh-isms" (A "Duh-ism" is something so bloody obvious, simply saying it makes you appear stupider than Madden).

    Basically, we need to show up, and we need them NOT to. I'm hoping for it, but I'm not betting on it.

    Caine, the "realitycheck", your post is so accurate and to comment any further would be a true Duhism.

    OK, I have to throw one in there, can't resist.

    Re: Are they serious? ESPN Week 11 Picks

    i totally agree with Caine as well.. The odds are against us right now.. The Pack have just been falling short against some good teams.. They are fresh off of a win on the road against the Falcons.. And insert all of Caine's points here!

    Yeah, I can see why they would pick the Pack over us but how does Hoge have Texans over Chiefs, and how is the Cinci v. Indy game a toss up.

    How do you not favor the Colts when they are undefeated? just stupid.

    You have to pick a few upsets.

    I agree though.

    Colts win

    Chiefs/Texans, could go either way. Texans will win one more game, will it be this weekend? Probably not.

    Re: Are they serious? ESPN Week 11 Picks

    Well, it's an uphill battle for us, but beating the Packers isn't anywhere near as difficult a task as beating the Giants. Everyone thought the Pacqueers were the cat's @$$ after beating the Saints, too. Let's see what happens. My prediction in the style of Dr. Z (the "Z" is for "ztupid"):

    And, finally, in the Monday nighter, the Packers face off against the Vikings. The Packers are favored, at home, and outdoors, where the Vikings don't seem to play well (I'm going to ignore last week's game against the Giants, because EVERYONE knows that it was a fluke). On paper, it looks like I should favor my beloved Packers. However, Brett seemed to be a bit less energetic last night during our usual butt-love fest, and I take that to be a bad sign. I hate to do this, but I'm going with the Vikings. And if you're reading this, Brett, please come back! The whole Tom Brady fling was just a mistake! I still love you!!!!!!!
