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)

Whatever gave you THAT idea? Just because I've always hated being called a girl (what a sissy word was my attitude when I was one). Now that I'm an adult, I figure I worked hard to get there so, yes, I still hate being called a GIRL! :dontknow:

But have no fear John -- I'll get my revenge: You can buy my drinks when TOTV gets together (and I'm not a cheap drunk!).

Unless the Steelers have a heck of a 4th quarter, it looks like Tal and Jim are the best prognosticators so far.

I think there's something wrong with my computer. I'm sure I typed in "Seattle" in my picks Friday but somehow or another the computer translated it as "Washington". Obviously I cannot be held responsible for a hardware error. 024 ::

I want the Bucs to win even though it looks like it will be the Giants. I did pick the Giants to win this game. Lived in the Tampa Bay area from 1996 through 2005.

Bucs are down by 10 at the 2 minute warning right now.
