I hear you, Anthony. I'm so bummed with that loss. I can't even blame those two bad calls (no pass interference!? really!). Eli Manning really screwed the team over with those 3 interceptions and the Pick 6. Giants D, for the most part, was pretty solid.

When he's good, Eli can be great. When he's off his game, the whole team suffers for it. A little consistency would be appreciated!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
I know right. I tell you Eli has earned the right to write his own ticket. But dang it can he can be frustrating. I sure hope that the Giants work on the offensive line next year. When Eli isn't rushed he does fine. I was really angry about those two bad calls. The roughing the passer amounted to nothing. But the pass interference affected the outcome of the game.

I was also bothered by the play calling. It was so unbalanced. They were doing a good job of running the ball. Why the heck did they get away from it.

Andy Meyers!  Took the Jags!  Who won BIG!  Against a Titans team that was a bit hot the last few weeks and was contending for the division lead.  So it took until week 15, but we finally have an I TOLD YOU SO.

Congratulations you magnificent bastard!

Mike Tomlin stresses conditioning in his Steelers, and I think it showed in the fourth quarter.  The Ravens got put on their heels after manhandling Pittsburgh all day.  Suddenly everything was working.

Kevin,
Thank you so much for the award (it made my season)! My picks this year have been lousy but being a part of this group has been the best part of the NFL season. It's great to read everyone's comments and be a part of awesome group even if I'm an Eagles fan (ha-ha).

Rich,
Kid is better. Thanks for your kindness. I was going to post a pick of him in an Eagles shirt but it's too soon. I am counting on the Giants to take the Cowboys out in the playoffs. Go Blue!

My week 16 :
  • Giants at Eagles : D could keep this one close W Eli did it ;)

  • Dolphins at Bills : No Tannehill = no win (Am I really writing this ?) L Bills D laid their O down

  • Buccaneers at Saints : An Era is about to end L but in fireworks !!!! Brees "Mr 5.000 yards"

  • Jets at Patriots : please don't rest your starters Bill, you lost homefield and SB shot 2 years ago W what a D...back like in '01&'03&'04...how many times did this team changed itself ? 

  • Titans at Jaguars : Come on, this is their chance, at last, to take the division L klonck...and Mariotta out...great fun year anyway, maybe next year, as Houston & Indianapolis are weak.

  • Vikings at Packers : divisionnal, upset special W (curious typo mistake, I keep my W !) Rodgers is...unbelievable

  • Chargers at Browns : no...L of course, I had to miss this one like some FG ;)

  • Redskins at Bears : I like Kirk & Co W

  • Falcons at Panthers : Atlanta know how to lose these kind of games L not this year :)

  • Colts at Raiders : Great QB showdown W but Carr off is a terrible hit to the Raiders Nations playoffs hopes

  • Cardinals at Seahawks : classic Div W !!! Incredible game

  • 49ers at Rams : They can make it against this anemic offense W

  • Bengals at Texans : Better QB L but worse kicker. Once again Houston will be the weak 1 and done division winner every 6 seeded will be pleased to take on !

  • Ravens at Steelers : always fierce, and Flacco can match a shootout with Ben L great game...and Brown's arm extension was epic !

  • Broncos at Chiefs : 3-0 ? I still don't buy KC and Denver will need this one, badly L no SB teams in playoffs...How time changes between Manning O Fireworks failing in the SB, Inoffensive Manning winning last year's thanks to this D (and terrible decisions by Bellichick in Conference final) and this year's D so alone...

Lions at Cowboys : Lions D is solid, Matthew can play with this secondary L Great Show on Earth

Week 16 results (I'm back on time !) :


Anthony Lombardi is white hot with his 4th victory in 5 weeks and 5th 10+ week in a row. 12-4 for him

Andy Meyers is 11-4, Rick Senger & Brad Brickley (their 6th 10+ week in a row, yearly record) & Kevin Hagerman 11-5

Doug Centers, cruises smoothly towards the title with 10-6, alongside
Brian Floyd, with 10-6

Kevin Brown & Allan Somerhall score 9-7

Matt Reed 8-8 but THE first (and only ?) I told you so of the season

Rich Marzullo and I are 7-9


Overall ranking :

Doug Centers at 159-78 

Rick Senger 155-82, 4 with 1 to go ? Will he go all-in to steal the deal ? and lose his second place to

Anthony Lombardi at 154-83...who might take his chances too !

Kevin Brown, holder, 151-86

Brad Brickley, riding his white hot streak, jumps two players at 148-89

Rich Marzullo now follows with 147-90

with Kevin Hagerman in the rearview at 146-91

Brian Floyd at 141-96

Matt Reed at 139-99

I follow at 136-99

Allan Somerhall has got me in the visor at 135-101

Andy Meyers at 120-105



What's at stakes for Week 17 as far as rivalries are concerned ?

Longtime Kevin Hagerman / Matt Reed competition seems over with KH up 7

Rich Marzullo overpowers Andy Meyers by 27...it is over.

I bow to my master Rick, 19 behind/below him, but will be back next year.

(No Prize) Awards :
Andy Meyers scored the sole I told you so...will he be the only one ?

Brian Floyd and Allan Somerhall own 2 "I called it", Doug, Rick, Brad, Rich , Matt and I one...

Good luck to all and a late merry christmas, fellow JB&NFL fans !

Math for me looks good but assuming my wk 15 tally is correct, I have a 156-81 record heading into the reg. season finale (see that thread for details... I'm too dizzy to summarize again!)  Yeah, I know the diff between 3 and 4 games behind Doug isn't much, but I'm going to need every little bit I've got to make this interesting!

You led me for the first part of the year... it was only when you fell behind and went for broke with some riskier picks that the spread widened.  I fully respect the Pinoli sports prognostication machine, which can only make reasonable predictions but can't get on the field and play.  Onward to the playoffs, and a new season!
