Default Super Bowl Playoffs & Picks - or Who is the best football handicapper at TOTV ?

Rules:
- you have to pick the winners of all games for this week prior to Saturday noon,
you get 1 point for each correct pick.

- you get one point for each game this week:
1) Jacksonville at Pittsburgh
2) Washington at Seattle
3) Tennessee at San Diego
4) New York Giants at Tampa Bay

Next week on Monday,
I'll post the point total/standings of those who choose to enter and -
list the next weeks games. You'll have to post your choices again next week for those games, and so on through the playoffs.

Each game next week will be worth 2 points.
The conference championships will be worth 3 points each.
The Super Bowl is worth 4 points.

Max point total is:
4 points first week (4 games @ 1 point)
8 points 2nd week (4 games @ 2 points)
6 points 3rd week (2 games @ 3 points)
4 points for Super Bowl (1 game @ 4 points)
22 Total

Confused? Good, so am I. Good luck

My picks -
Jacksonville (and I do like Pittsburgh, just not their year)
Washington (just because of their spirit and difficulties this year)
San Diego (should handle the Titans readily)
Tampa Bay (sorry Giants, next year)

Well one of us will have very few points come Monday.

Pittsburg, Agree not their year but they will get this one
Seattle, The Cowboys didn't show up is the only reason the Redskins looked good.
San Diego, We agree ;D
New York, This could go either way, but Giant are playing well even against good teams.

Jax....playing better

Skins .... gotta be a homer here

Chargers .... home team

Giants .... if they played like they did vs NE, they should win

Yikes...only picked one home team....may pay the price for that.

I see a trend developing
Jaguars, Redskins, Chargers & Giants

(of course, then the Packers go all the way!)

Giants
Jaguars
Chargers
Seahawks

Not very good at this though. Not a huge sports' fan. Sport fan, but not so much a sports' fan.

Have a relative on the Seattle Seahawks staff-- John Idzik. Sort of influenced my pick there.

taltarzac,
being a sports fan likely is a negative in this LOLOL

My boy wants in on this, he won his fantasy football league superbowl two years running and thinks he knows football inside and out (he doesn't LOLOL). anyway, no harm in expanding this to those interested, since it's for prestige and honor and not $$$$$$$$$

here's his picks:

Hey Dad,

Pittsburgh, Washington, San Diego, Giants.

Girls???? Don't know about 07 but I put my dolls away in about the 4th grade (well, decapitated them then anyway). But I gotta admit, my heart just isn't in football this year -- I've been a dolfan since 68 ... hard to root for them ever since they hired Johnson.

College ball is the Bruins forever -- so, do I care that USC won the Rose Bowl and is probably #1 in reality. Nah, just hurts a lot.

But wait til next season (okay, 3 seasons from now -- gonna take awhile to build up the Phins).
