Interestingly, the two most popular picks this week (representing almost 80% of the pool) are 1-3. If the Jags and Jets come through, things get VERY interesting. But what are the odds THAT'LL happen?
(Note that due to playoff baseball, the Chargers/Raiders game has been moved to 8:35 PDT Sunday on NFL Network. Pity those poor east coasters who will stay up until 2am to feed their terrible football watching addiction)
Originally posted by WpobDublDownDrew's Pick - kudos to you for going off the beaten path and taking an 0-4 team that can't score or move the ball. As a Giants fan I hope you are right.
It was worth a shot. I figured they could get it done at home. I think I lasted longer this year than most so there's that . . .

This is what I get for over thinking it and looking down the road. I figured this would be a gimme game for Atlanta and the easiest win on their schedule. I should have gone with my gut and went SF. Stupid. I should have remembered Atlanta has no D.
So it became a variation on Super Bowl XXV after all:
The Super Bowl is played in a warm, waterside community (Tampa/New Orleans) at a time of war (Gulf War/War On Terrorism) and is suffused in patriotic gestures.
