Rick Wins 4th Pick 'Em Week!


CONGRATULATIONS to Rick for winning the Week 12 Pick ‘Em Blog Challenge and his 4th win.  This guy is a pick ‘em stud!  We’ve got to conk this guy on the noggin and pack him up to Vegas.  (Hey Rick, please pick my PowerBall picks this week!!!  PLLEEEEZZEEE!!!) 

Now, shall we talk about that freaking debacle in the Texans vs. Lions game?  What a crock of hot, moist, stinking cow shit that challenge rule is!  This is an example of the rules committee losing its mind.  Okay, well, when they implemented it, I guess it seemed to make sense…kinda like the MLB infield fly rule—it prevents one team from employing some trickeration.  But one man’s trick is another’s “strategy.”  So, what’s wrong with throwing the red flag to give yourself some time to think?  If you ask me, that mess about “spiking” the ball to stop the clock is a crock of turds—that should intentional grounding.  Either way, the Lions should have been given the benefit of the doubt by the automatic replay and the zebras should have called that BS touchdown back.  But dem’s the rulz, huh?

Man, 8 points back suddenly. Way to go, Rick. Excellent take on that rule too, G. I agree.
Give me the Saints for Thurs night.

Thanks everyone and especially Geo for the write up. I've been out all week and just saw this post. Didn't think I had a chance with the Packers stinking it up Sunday night. Yes, I played the Powerball, but my brother-in-law bought the quick pick tickets; and we know how that turned out.
