This was the surest I've felt of any week. I almost went another way after seeing 70% of the world was with me. Damn.

As a Skins fan, I've never been any happier to get knocked out because the Giants can't protect a lead. Good job Eli, thanks for putting us into sole possession of first in the East.

It's like Triple H's number came up in the Rumble and we were all the Zach Ryders hanging around to get tossed.

I'm really surprised to see so many people go with the Giants, considering how close they came to giving one away against Arizona last week.

But there was NOTHING to indicate that Seattle was any good especially without the "12th man'. Alas, it was fun. In my money King of the Hill league, everyone picked the Giants. So does that mean we all lose or win?

I believe it was either at the end of the Giants/Seahawks game or the post game show someone said "wow, I bet survival leagues are going to lose a lot of people this week!" How prophetic :)

I know Jim Nantz said it during the NE/NYJ game after they showed highlights of the Seahawks/Giants.

I had the Giants, but for some reason I just felt too uneasy about going with such a large majority of the folks this week. I was GOING to pick Houston until Al Davis died, and I couldn't pick against the Radiers. I felt like Minnesota couldn't blow a lead this week so I picked them almost by deault...even when it was 28-0, I wasn't feeling confident in that pick. The other pick I liked was San Francisco, but it ended up with me not feeling as comfortable picking against Tampa as I was against Arizona. (I find that I'm picking more against teams than I am for teams - I'm probably not alone in utilising that strategy.) Finally, I don't think I can pick against Cam Newton the rest of the year (even as the Panthers probably go 0-16).

The Seahawks have been historically crappy going to the east coast for early games even when they were respectable.

They're not going to take away Cam's one win for getting paid this year are they?

I'm one of the people who was out after the first week and I am an avowed Seahawks fan and homer, but I did call this win on Friday morning: The Steve Czaban Show on Yahoo! Sports Radio.

Sidney Rice has made a huge difference for Tarvaris Jackson's confidence and every time people jump on the Eli Bandwagon, he comes up short the next week. Hoping the 'Hawks get all the injuries they sustained in this game healed over the bye week and they do the same in Cleveland in a few weeks!

I lost with the Giants in my pool, too. Along with 97 other teams.

I wasn't that sure the Giants couldn't lose it, but there was no one I was any higher on. My brother runs our pool, and his preview for this week said for just about every game anyone picked "This game scares me."

I kind of figured the Raiders would have found a way to win after hearing about Al Davis passing away, but couldn't get to a computer to change my Houston pick. However, I probably would have ended picking the Giants anyway, so it's a moot point.

Good Me: Don't pick the Giants - that is your home team and you don't want to have too much invested in them this week.

Evil Me: Come on! It's the freakng Seahawks traveling across the country with freaking Tavaris Jackson at QB! It's a lock!

Good Me: This has trap game written all over it. Seriously. Take the Lions or the Vikings. You will thank me on Tuesday.

Evil Me: Have some balls and pick your team! Loser.

I hate Evil me. Nothing goes right when I listen to Evil Me.
