Looks like we're on to the Rams. The good thing is, the Rams will basically have no home-field advantage over Dallas, in fact, I suspect there will be more Dallas fans in attendance at the game than Rams.

Cowboys can win this easily if they let Dak run the ball. I don't think the Rams have the defense to stop the Dak/Zeke runs.

MTZehvor's predictions for wild card weekend:

HOU by 7
SEA by 3
LAC by 7
CHI by 7

I didn't get any picks from BlowoverKing.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Saying Cowboys win against "Weak Giants" without Zeke and three pro bowl lineman isn't impressive is an insult on their hard work and never giving up. 

...are Cowboys fans usually this sensitive, to the point where they get upset if someone doesn't acknowledge the "hard work" of the players?

This is the NFL, dude. You don't get any props for hard work. Everyone in the league works incredibly hard to get to where they are. You get props if you play well enough to make yourself seem head and shoulders above most of the other teams in the league. Dallas had several impressive games this season. Beating the fourth worst team in the NFL by one point is not one of them.

Not to mention that this is the NFL thread. Every team in the league gets mocked or insulted here, including my own Patriots, often by myself. If you don't want to hear negative things said about Dallas, go back to watching Skip Bayless or something.

 

Anyway, Wild Card Weekend results. Winners are bolded

# Username Record/PDT vs. Record/PDT Username # HFA
12 NobleTeam360  2-2 (∞) vs.  2-2 (30) RolStoppable 5 32
11 BlowoverKing  0-4 (∞) vs.  1-3 (34) MTZehvor 6 26
10 Carl  0-4 (60) vs.  0-4 (∞) Chris Hu 7 15
9 Farsala  3-1 (29) vs.  2-2 (20) XD84 8 5


The fickleness of the bracket strikes again, as BlowoverKing and Chris Hu's absences allow both me and Carl to (probably undeservedly) move on. NobleTeam360 was unfortunately brought down by not making the first pick (or perhaps more accurately the VGC messenger not sending things through properly for whatever reason). Farsala in particular got hosed after posting the second best performance of the week and not making it through due to PDT differential. Help me I'm bad at reading

This brings us to the quarterfinals.

As with last week, you are invited to either PM or email me your picks (ogvernment@gmail.com). Rol will be taking cycycychris and my picks. Note that if you PM me, I will always PM you back to confirm I got your picks, so if you don't hear back...chances are it didn't go through. You can also check the "sent" folder to ensure that the website processed your message.

And with that out of the way...here's the schedule for this week:

Colts @ Chiefs

Cowboys @ Rams

Chargers @ Patriots

Eagles @ Saints

Saved by VGC's suckiness. Next round I will go through because burninmylight will forget that this is still on.

Imagine going 0-4 and still making it through.

Dang, what were XD84's predictions? I wonder if he had similar predictions to me.

Mine:

Ind by 3, DAL by 7, LA by 10, CHI by 7

God almighty thank you for posting this. For some reason when I was recording his picks my mind just defaulted to Chicago winning. He actually went 2-2, picking IND (by 10), SEA (by 4), LAC (by 7), and CHI (by 10). Did an insanely good job with PDT though.

So major screw up on my part. You're through to the next round. I'll update the post respectively.

I'll post the picks for the only other round that had competition. Don't believe anything's wrong here but someone can let me know if there is.

Rol: IND by 3, SEA by 4, LAC by 3, CHI by 10 (2-2)

Noble: Nothing submitted for IND/HOU, DAL by 7, BAL by 4, PHI by 10

The 4th worse team? Hell no, Giants were on an upswing son and I hate the Giants. However, it now makes sense. You hate the Giants because they beat your Patriots twice in the super bowl.



I just saw the results and wondered how I made 3-1. Glad that Farsala challenge the ref ball from MTZehor
