    For the first time ever, I'm joining a Super Bowl contest with my co-workers because someone was smack-talking the Cowboys (been a fan since I was a little girl).

    So, to put my money where my mouth is.... I'm joining...

    However, I do NOT follow football! You know, I'm one of those superbowl fans that yells and screams and makes steaks... so long as the Eagles are not playing (I HATE the Eagles on a personal level that franchise just get me.....)

    But I digress...

    I know nothing about stats - so do any of you have some tips on how the hookey to figure out my picks? I'm already picking Cowboys this weekend... and I think the Packers in the NFC side, but on the AFC I'm totally lost....

    Halp?

    As much as I hate to admit it, I believe the best team this year is the San Diego Chargers.

    This weekend my money is on:
    New England and Cincinniati (very hesitantly) on the AFC side.
    Dallas and Grean Bay (very hesitantly) on the NFC side.

    That being said, the footbal pool I was in the year had 196 people in it. I came in 68th. Soooo.... obviously I wasn't very good at picking the winners this year ;)

    What makes it worse is, my Brother won it this year and my nephew won it last year. Oh well, that makes next year my turn ;)

    I did hear about how badly the Bengals lost to the Jets... a few of the guys here lost some serious money on that game. Also, looking historically, Cincinnati has always choked on big games. I really don't see the bengals moving forward...


    I turned in my picks...

    AFC
    Jets & Pats but they will both lose to the Colts & Chargers who will duke it out for the bowl... with the chargers winning

    NFC
    Cowboys & Packers, then on to Saints and Cowboys with the Cowboys playing in the bowl.

    Yeah, the Vikings are a good team, but the Cowboys have the hutzpah to take it all the way.


    Now.. in the bowl... Chargers & Cowboys..... hmmm.....

    Here, I will follow my heart and say Cowboys. ^.^


    So that's what I turned in... COWBOYS FTW!!!

    I hate the Cowboys on a personal level...... They are notorious for choking in big games the past 10 years and Tony Romo.....I hate him for having had sex with Jessica Simpson AND Carrie Underwood! He pisses me off....

    I know nothing about sports either Kirthag. So I got no advise for you but I will say this about the Superbowl-They'd do better not to put Britney Spears in another commercial this year. Otherwise my head might explode.

    Britney spears says: "No beer before noon while you're pregnant", "If potty training is too hard, just put your baby in a dress and let him go wherever", "If you give baby some of mommies pills, make sure you cut those pills in HALF", "There are gonna be times you forget things, your keys, your mexican gardners name, your babies...but make sure that when you forget you take a picture or some other sob will, better not be Perez darlin', better not be Perez." - Paperlillies

    I really think the Saints & Cowboys game will be good, and close. But really now... them Texans got a knack and yes, I see them sending the saints marching back to 'nawlins!

    what will also be a really good game will be the Colts & Chargers. Altho one of my friends is laying his money on the Pats & Colts...


    but... I turned my picks in... and will bust out my Cowboys regalia and cheer them as if I were one of their famous cheerleaders!


    but hands down... the CBs will wipe the eagles off the map. muwaahaahaa!

    This sounds like a statement from someone in S&M. And if she is Kelek keep your head up she'll give in eventually and if not then i can point you in the direction of a good imitation :thumbup:

    Kirthag the Saints are gonna "Brees" through the playoffs and the memory of the Cowboys beating the Eagles are gonna seem like something from a history book; which reminds me thats what the cowboys franchise is lost in history.

  16. Bengals looked horrible. Cowboys are putting the smack down on the eagles. Eagles looked so bad in first half I thought the boys were playing a Div 2 college team.

    Cowgirls got their hands full this weekend and the Saints are gonna clip the wings of the Cardinals :)
     
  19. Apparently someone's a cowboy hater...

    I'm pulling for the Saints - so much so that if it comes down to a Cowboys/Saints Championship, I'll root against the Cowboys. Oh, and Brees got hosed for MVP this year. What Manning did with those rookie recievers was impressive, but Brees has brought legitimacy to the Saints organization.

    Five o clock you must be lost in Margaretiville if you think the cowboys could get a pass through the Superdome a 2nd time.......even no one in Vegas would be stuborn enough to to beleive they will. Notice Richard Pryor agrees with me. Not even George Carlin argued with him.

    Vikes are going to be awfully hard to beat in a playoff game in the dome for sure!
     
  23. "Notice Richard Pryor agrees with me. Not even George Carlin argued with him."

    I don't know if I agree with you. I'm just saying I'll be rooting for the Saints. New Orleans needs a win.
