I'm taking Tampa Bay straight up to win on the field. The Saints have been showing up late for the past four weeks and they have the big game against the Patriots next week. I think they are gonna take their eye off the prize and the Bucs are gonna pull off the shocker.
I can't say I TOTALLY disagree with you, especially since Josh Freeman is playing pretty well, but I'm not buying.
I could definately see them faltering in the first half and having to climb back to take the game. In that sense, I do see them losing to the Pats in the next week...
On another note, Brees has let me down tremendously in my fantasy league over the past few weeks, I'm thinking of trading him for some good RB's...hmmmm.
Im with you Eye. Saints were sloppy last week against the Rams and I am hoping that Josh sticks it to them but good!
Freeman had a bad first half last week, but overall he has played pretty well for a new guy. I think the Bucs are playing just good enough that they could take advantage of the Saints being overconfident and looking past them.
*clears throat*, ahem!
yea, so I understood where you were coming from and even thought it could be pulled off after TB drew even with the Saints at 7 when Josh Freeman threw for their first TD.
Only problem was, it was their ONLY TD. lol.
That's the risk you take picking a big upset. I coulda waited another week and picked the Patsies to beat the Saints. But playing it safe is boring and I'm not even so sure that is an upset at this point. Sometimes you just gotta take the hard road and stir things up a little.
They hung in there for most of the first half before they fell apart. Once the Saints went up by ten, I knew it was too much pressure on Freeman.
Saints will kill all of the pirates in 1st half because unlike last few weeks were Brees is still sleeping in the first half this week will be different.
I think they are going to sleep right into the third quarter and it's gonna be a bit too late by the time they finally drag themselves out of bed this time.
I think the bucs will win a close game. After getting no calls against the dolphins last week and having a call be blown badly thry'll be ready to play! We always play the teams in our divison hard, so hopefully our secondary does well and freeman is on point against a top 5 deffence!!!
The Saints have a lot of injuries on defense. The Bucsare playing like they have been given a second chance at life. Unfortunately, the Saints offense will find it's stride again and if they do this week, the Bucs will need to put up at least 40 or more points to win. I think I will have to go with the Saints on this one.....(as much as I would like to see the Bucs win)
I will take the Saints double digit this week. The team that is prime for an upset is Indy. I like the Colts, but...Baltimore is desperate for a win now if they want to make playoffs. Teams have been able to run some on the Colts and Baltimore has an awesome power running game.
Ray Lewis and the defense I believe will come to play this week. I am making Baltimore over Indianapolis my upset pick.
You know Terrel Suggs and Todd heap are out right?
I know about Heap, but I didn't about Suggs.
I want Indianapolis to win. This is going to be a tough game. I just see this one as the game where Indy may slip up. I hope I miss this upset pick. Hey, look at my upset picks lately, lol haven't been that great.
Suggs got his knee messed up by a block from Brady Quinn Monday. He's out for a few weeks.
That will hurt Baltimore. If Indy can win this week against Balt. and at houston next week...they could easily go undefeated. Their remaining schedule gets a lot easier.
The scary game is the Titans. They are starting to look like the Titans.
I just read that Drew Brees's Mother's death was ruled a suicide. Could be a distraction, although they didn't seem to have much of a relationship.
The Saints still have New England, Atlanta, Dallas and I think one more game at Carolina left. Will be hard for them to go undefeated in regular season.
I could see the potential for a trap game, but Indy has been a machine all season. The Saints should have blown every one of those last four teams off the field by halftime, except maybe Atlanta. They're believin' the hype.
Now lets talk about you guys letting the Cowboys off the hook...
I thought so too. WRONG again. This is way I'm not a gambler.
I am not a good gambler either, steelers lost, that was close and then the cowboys won, hah
Saints have the luxury of a weak schedule and favorable match ups at home. They have a good chance to go undefeated but I don't see them going far in the playoffs.
I see them going to the Super Bowl and possibly winning it. There's maybe one team in the NFC that could compete with them and they haven't exactly had a crushing schedule either. I'm not so sure how they might stand up against the top teams in the AFC, but we'll find out next week.
He wants you to call him when you get into his neighborhood. He's gonna put a tux on and help you move your furniture.

Its week 9 and The Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints are the only 2 teams that remain undefeated. Based on their match ups for this weekend it seems that they will remain that way for one more week. Any thoughts?As for the rest of the NFL . . .Can the Titans upset the 49ers? Will the...

Upset no. 1: Indianapolis Colts (11-0)vs Tennessee Titans (5-6)Since Vince Young's resurgence, the Tennessee Titans have won 5 straight games after opening the season at a dismal 0-6 start. Running back Chris Johnson has become more effective in the running game now since the passing game has...

This is a matchup that's a classic argument. Offense vs Defense.The Ravens clearly have a better defense. Multiple turnovers against the Texans, key turnovers. They seem to have been in the right place all game long last week. They sacrifice their well being for the next...

This week I have to catch the NY Giants against the New Orleans Saints. I think Eli is the most underrated quarterback in the NFL.And in college, I'm really looking forward to USC winning big over Notre Dame. I think Oklahoma will beat Texas as well.Those are a couple of great college...

Texans over Cowboys. .. Cant decide on this one as the Texans have been playing great on offense, while Dallas is struggling. However, this could go either way as both defenses have not played well.Giants over Titans - I am hoping for a Giant win as these GMen need a win to to get back on track...
