    At least from my perspective:cry:

    I'm in one of those pools you just need to pick the winner, no spread involved. I was in 2nd place before yesterday.

    Going into MNF I'm +5 & -10 this week:cry: With a Packer win, I could pick 6 correct for the week.:wink2:

    Only have 2 money games picked this week. At least the Pats (+2.5) covered. Barely!

    Now I need Green Bay (-3) to win tonight.

    Am I the only one that thought the Ravens' game winning field goal was good?

    I think the fake zebras thought so too. Or else they needed to get home to watch Sportscenter.

    Remember they also tended to see nonexistent pass interference too. :Þ:Þ:Þ

    i think straight up picks are often tougher than the spread. it's almost impossible to pick a team like Min over SF straight up, but maybe with the points, it would have been a good value. so straight up it's hard to pick most of the underdogs, so on a week like this you get crushed.

    it didn't look good to me, but it was kind of hit or miss. I think that if we had regular officiating, it wouldn't have been as controversial.

    I hit on the Bills yesterday, but evened out on the Lions losing straight-up.

    I am surprised I am in the minority with the Ravens' fg.

    The referees has the best view.

    They were underneath the goal posts. I find it hard to believe they could blow that call.

    that's not really a valid argument. they blink, they're not paying that close attention because they think it's a chipshot, they have poor vision, they are idiots, etc, etc. there's 1000 ways they can blow any call even the ones that seem unblowable.

    Nobody said it was easy to make picks. Though the last couple of weeks have seen some teams appearing to be locks lose.

    Who would think the Patriots would be 1-2 and the Cardinals 3-0.

    I did think the Vikings may have been 2-1, but not including a win over the 49ers. Heck with a Packer loss tonight it would be Bears and Vikings in first place.

    Well crap, Packers down 7 at half and really looking bad on O.

    Loved Wilson as the UW quarterback last year, but he's killing my team tonight.:cry:

    Really, really ugly week!

    8 sacks in first half for the Seahawks.

    4 by Clemons.

    How about that ending?!?! There are some brutal calls being made, particularly that last defense pass interference call. Looked like jennings had that last ball too.

    Unbelievable call!:nono:

    What's also troubling is the lack of scoring from this high powered offense.:confused2:

    Would agree with you and both. What happened to the Green Bay offense, I would never have thought this game would have come down to the last play. Maybe a bad Saints defense is the cure. The only issue is the Saints can still score a few points.

    I was up by 21 points in fantasy league and my playes were done Sunday evening. My opponent had Rodgers - I gave up by the end of Sunday. Still am shocked he didn't score more. That Jennings catch/review/third down/review/ first down/rushing td sequence was intense to watch from my fantasy team standpoint.

    The thing not said was that it looked like Jennings had the first down anyway.
