Escapism- My NFL Picks Go Down in Flames

Well, it won’t be the Cowboys and the Chargers in the Super Bowl. Did I forget to tell you that to have any chance of winning, you’re supposed to take my picks, then do exactly the opposite?

Well, I got the Colts right, predicted the Jets/Chargers game would be close and I did say the Jets were dangerous because of their defense and their running game. But I also thought the Chargers would prevail. I mean, their kicker, Nate Kaeding, hits his last 20 field goals in a row and then can’t hit the broadside of a barn, missing THREE times??? Sheesh.

As for the NFC, I completely underestimated the home field advantage in the domes of New Orleans and Minneapolis. The 12th man really is a factor. Live and learn.

As for the Cowboys/Vikings- Minnesota did to Dallas exactly what I thought Dallas would to do Minnesota. They harrassed Tony Romo all game long and never really pressured Bret Favre all that much. And how about that kicker, Shaun Suisham, huh? Genius personnel move there by the Cowboys to pick up the Redkins choking specialist. The two 1st half field goals he missed were like a dagger in the heart of all Dallas fans. Your Washington bretheren know just how you feel. He’s a really great kicker as long as it’s not a meaningful game.

The Vikings defense apparently comes to life at the Metrodome. Wish I had known that. They finished 9-0 there for the season. But their next venue is the Lousiana Superdome.

The Saints rose to the moment after losing their last three regular season games in a row. They were terrific in their total demolition of the Cardinals.  Looks like the 13-0 Saints are back and the 0-3 Saints were just a mirage.

Picks for Next Sunday

So given my warning in the lead paragraph of this story about my great prognisticating skills, I offer the following as a public service:

I’m going for the Saints and their insane and loud fans to offer a big assist in getting New Orleans past Minnesota next Sunday. You know what that means: Go for the Vikes.

I think the AFC championship game will be close and I give the edge to the Colts. New York Jets fans rejoice!

Colts beat the Saints in the Superbowl.  Should be a great game between the Jets and the Vikings.
