Seattle by 7 Vikes by 3 (so , I lost that one already) San Diego by 14 Indianapolis by 21... But like I said, if you are smart forget the Vikings...

Seattle by 3 Green Bay by 6 Jets by 1 in OT Indianapolis by 21 (and now I'll fill in my brother's Broncos rant: "They do this every year, they sleep their way into the playoffs and then they fall apart like wet cardboard! Broncos, you steenk!!!")

lbb...you can't win by 1 in OT! Goddammit! I've got a fever! Jets by 3 in OT, happy now?

St Louis by 3 (the Shaun Alexander thing will do just enough to cause this loss) Green Bay by 10 (#4 has the gas for this win and no more) Jets by 3 (My Mom is a big NYJ fan and she rules... plus I will be watching this with her as we're meeting them in Palm Desert for the weekend) Indianapolis by 10 (I would give a bigger margin but have some respect left for Shanahan)

Rams over the Seahawks by 6. Seattle is just limping home now. Green Bay over whoever wins the auction by 10. Randy Moss will make one circus catch, but it'll be in the first quarter when it doesn't mean anything. Chargers by a field goal. LT's longest run of the night will come with under 2 minutes to go to get them into field goal position. and Indy by, oh, 21. They won't win it all, but they will romp here. Payton throws for 5 TDs and Plummer crumbles.

NoMich, you can remove all the new lines in your table to avoid the extra spaces.

posted by danostuporstar at 07:23 PM on January 08

NM - when you've done the table, run it through this. Is teh fluff.

posted by Mr Bismarck at 07:59 PM on January 08

My first prediction, foiled by the Seattle receivers who have hands of solid granite.

posted by lil_brown_bat at 08:32 PM on January 08

My first two are going into the toilet, thanks to Nate Kaeding making like he's Ray Finkle...now he can go around saying "laces out" too... should have done opposite picks.

posted by chris2sy at 11:20 PM on January 08

Well, that late game was the sloppiest game I've seen in a long damn time. I'm a Jets fan, but they are going to get stomped next week, no matter where they play.

posted by chicobangs at 11:22 PM on January 08

Damn, that late game was goat v. goat. Oh, and thanks for the table posting tips up there.

posted by NoMich at 11:30 PM on January 08

l_b_b, your second prediction made it all back. Couldn't help but notice.

posted by chicobangs at 01:10 AM on January 09

lbb even called overtime. She should win a special hat.

posted by Mr Bismarck at 04:58 AM on January 09

I don't get the hat because I couldn't stay awake for it. I just couldn't watch any more. "You take it!" "No, you take it!" I don't know why, but I had this feeling they'd both be falling around like flies before the thing was over. Talk about two teams determined to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Who wins the Goat of the Game award: Eric Barton, for that utterly stupid headsmack on Drew Brees that turned a great goal-line stand into a waste of time; or Nate Kaeding, for blowing that field goal?

posted by lil_brown_bat at 07:09 AM on January 09

I fixed the table formatting. And I'm bracing for another soul-crushing Vikings loss. Clearly I am not smart.

posted by kirkaracha at 08:48 AM on January 09

D'oh! This is what I get for not visiting often enough! I didn't get my picks in. Though to be honest, for my work pool I had San Diego by 3 and Seattle by 7, so it's probably a good thing I didn't get my picks in on time for this one... But if you are taking any Sunday picks still, here are mine: Green Bay by 6 Indianapolis by 3

Duly noted, grum.

posted by NoMich at 12:20 PM on January 09

Well, it's all over. I got four points, goddammit Brett Favre four interceptions?!??!? How'd the rest of y'all do?

posted by lil_brown_bat at 06:57 PM on January 09

Four points for picking the right teams but I stink at guessing spreads. I am surprised, though, at how many of you picked the Packers to win.

posted by jasonspaceman at 07:14 PM on January 09

Well, that weekend sucked.

This table has some wrong data for my picks...
