• Week 12 Runnin' and Gunnin': Pick the High Score of the Week



    In the last two weeks, Tampa Bay have gone from being winless and having their pick of the incoming college QBs, to ceding the #1 draft pick and setting the freakin’ high score of the week. Tampa Bay!

    For the first time we had three teams tie for the high score: Tampa, Seattle and the Bengals.

    That led to multiple winners in our little contest as well. Pruitt (2), Biggie (3), Rich Gapinski — oh wait, he changed his pick! — and jfkaspar (1) all notch a win. Congratulations, boys!

    The team on the end of Tampa’s beating was increasingly forlorn Atlanta, which has but four days to prepare for New Orleans and has been benching players left and right, including a center, a tackle, a guard, a linebacker and a cornerback. I think they could be on the end of consecutive high scores. I pick New Orleans.

      G-men.

      The Cowboys D sucks, and so does the Giants. A shootout will ensue.

      No point over thinking this - Saints.

      Yes, Saints. The Falcons suck. The end.

      The Saints will expose the Falcons as being a little bit needy on the defensive side of the ball.

      You must have missed me last week wax. I picked the hawks, and that's 3 wins for me.

      Thursdays are always super sloppy, with a huge advantage to the better team.

      The saints are way better, and primed for a break out.

      The falcons have been slaughtered on a regular basis, they SUCK.

      I'M taking the saints here. They definitely throw up a 40+ plus burger.

      The falcons just allowed the bucs to hang a 40 burger on them. THE TAMPA BAY freaking bucs hung a 40 burger. With a short prep period vs a much better team, they're about to get NUKED!!!

      Only way nola doesnt win this is sitting brees in the 4th...

      You sure did. Thanks for the heads up, sorry I missed your post. I'll update the winners list when I get to my other computer.

      I had a very strong urge this evening to switch from the Saints to the Pats. I'm trying to train myself to not second-guess my picks, but it can be hard!
