Philly really needs to stop fucking guaranteeing wins over Dallas lol.

Hello everyone,,

It's shocking how much more prepared the Saints were for this NFL season than almost every other team. Making Teddy Bridgewater the highest paid backup and Michael Thomas the highest paid receiver look like acts of genius. And they still have Drew Brees to come back, who even though the media like to pretend it never happened, was rated the best QB in the top 100 coming into this season.mobdro lucky patcher kodi

On the Raiders v Packers game, I feel like we got as good a picture as we're ever gonna get on Derek Carr. Neither team's defense was really stepping up to stop anything, and the game turned into a straight-up QB duel with Rodgers looking a clear class above Carr by every metric, and he didn't even have to scramble or perform magic out of the pocket to do it. Meanwhile Carr blew several promising drives with innacurate throws or moments of stupidity.
Seems like a good guy, but just not a franchise QB in my eyes. Not unless you're gonna have a Bears level defense for several seasons.

Yet again wrong on a TNF pick. It sucks to start the week with an incorrect pick more often than not.

I conclude that the whole AFC sucks.

I can only guess you aren't watching many of those division teams playing that much because yeah, it's been transparent that this division sucks. I will say that the Ravens have improved in their game ever since the Browns beat their ass. And the Steelers are absolutely lucky they won 4 straight games. I work with a Steelers fan here in Dubai and he claims that Steelers will play dirty as revenge when my Browns play them again in 2 weeks. THAT is a must watch game because people are gonna get hurt on both sides.

Don't underestimate rivalries. Yeah the browns have been terrible for the last few decades but that doesn't change the fact that this rivalry is fueled by hatred.

I've hardly watched more than Packers games for over a year now, so I really don't know how good most teams actually are. On that note, I'll probably be better off by not visiting NFL.com on gameday because the information I get from there is worse than the gut feeling I have when making my picks. Foles returning for the Jaguars while the Colts were still without Hilton mattered as little as the Redskins playing at home with a rookie QB that shows promise according to some writer; both of those games weren't even remotely close affairs and it turned an otherwise great week into an okayish one for my predictions.

The AFC North may be bad overall (I thought the Steelers were decent, but I guess not), but the Ravens look like the best team in the entire AFC right now. I'll probably pick the Steelers again when they play against the Browns because it's football law that the Browns disappoint as soon as someone begins to have faith in them.



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

There aren’t any dominant teams in either conference but the NFC is slightly more loaded than the AFC. Just slightly.

Packers, Vikings, Seahawks, Saints, 49ers. All good but flawed teams. Pats, Ravens, Chiefs, maybe Bills. All good but flawed teams. Houston isn’t there yet. Dallas is not consistent enough. Rams either.

AFC is certainly worse thanks to having the two shittiest teams in the NFL, Bengals and Dolphins. Also most disappointing, Browns.

The Bengals are the worst team in the NFL but the Redskins are the second worst.  As for the most disappointing team its the Falcons they should have played like they did the last two weeks the entire season and they would be 7-3 right now instead of being 3-7.

The Redskins have been terrible all season they got extremely lucky by winning by one point against a very bad Dolphins team they are not going to win another game the rest of the season.  They will only be a fraction better then the Bengals since they will go 0-16 both teams are extremely bad and should have been 0-16.

Most disappointing team is the Chargers because they have a Super Bowl roster and are somehow 2 games under 500 (possibly 3 soon after writing this). Browns have more talent but were also very young with elements we'd never seen play together and a rookie head coach, so they were always unpredictable. There's no real excuses for the Chargers though. Have too much experience, talent and good coaching to have blown the games they have.



Week 12 Picks

Really hoping the Chargers could pull this off, but...Phillip Rivers of all people let them down. Damn. Maybe I just haven't been paying close enough attention to them this year, but I thought Rivers was like the one constant in this mess.

Oh well. Fuck Dean Spanos.



Packers better win this weekend. I need the damn 49ers out of first place in our division

This will be my turn to give you condolences for a Packers loss.

I'd feel better about the Packers' chances if the game were in Green Bay, especially after how the last trip to the west coast turned out against the Chargers. In any case, this is a playoff preview game and will serve as a good test for both teams how ready they are. The 49ers are in better shape because the Packers still have to figure out how to get more out of their defense; in its current state it's very dependent on generating turnovers because they have a hard time forcing punts.

Looks like Rivers is on his way out. Four interceptions...  He might as well join Eli, Luck, and probably Ben on the way out.

Give Brady a few more badass receivers, decent offensive line and he can play for next decade.
