Comments on: Holy Schnikes/Seahawks Chicago Bears History Blog by Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:25:11 +0000 hourly 1 By: jdm Mon, 10 Jan 2011 16:50:38 +0000 I, as well, went 3-4 this weekend with the Colts being my one loss. I play against the spread in my confidence pool. There was no way I was riding NO with 11 points. I figured the Packers would beat a banged up Michael Vick, and I saw the Ravens winning easily. Even if the Jets had not pulled out the last second FG, I still would’ve lost since the Colts wouldn’t had covered.

Since you asked… I’m pretty sure I’m the only person in my Playoffs Pick-Em pool who scored 3-of-4 with that particular set. (I was wrong about the Colts.) I figured that homefield in Seattle was going to be the deciding stat (which bodes well for next week), and thought the Eagles were as phony as you did.

I suspect we take on the Packers in the championship game — they’re riding charmed right now, and the Falcons seem like they might be running that Schottenheimer-style “play not to lose” thing like they did against the Saints in week 16. They’re an all-around solid team, but not spectacular, and I bet they whiff when it counts. And I’d certainly rather play the Pack at home — it’d be a lot more fun, and I think they’re eminently beatable (especially with that sloppy coaching). No game’s a gimme in the playoffs, but I like our shot to carry the conference.
