Nonsensical predictions for wk 14

Postby mad benjamin » Wed Dec 08, 2004 9:46 pm

Anyone want to take a stab at some oddball, unexpected, illogical prediction for the coming week? An example might be to predict that the Colts will be shut out by Houston. Or, maybe you think Maurice Hicks will run for 200 yds. Or, maybe Matt Stover will kick 9 field goals against the Giants. It might be kind of fun to see how close people come to having their off-the-wall guesses come true.

My wild pick for the week; the Saints shut down Julius and hold him to 70 yds rushing.

This may not be that off the wall, but for some reason I see San Francisco rolling to an easy W in Arizona this week (despite being 7 point underdogs). For some reason, I see San Fran winning this game by 2 touchdowns, 31-17. I also see Oakland possibly beating Atlanta.

Also, the Bengals will roll to an easy victory in New England, thereby keeping their playoff hopes alive. ;-D

As for fantasy wise, Lee Evans goes for 150 and 2 TDs against Cleveland this week.

The Colts beat the Over/Under of 57 alone by scoring at least 58 points.

I know, I know, you said off the wall but if it was any other team that would be impressive.

Starting QB: out
Starting RB: out
Top 2 CBs : out

All that aside, i agree with you dave and say niners win by at least 10 ;-D. Dorsey will throw for 250 yards and 2 tds. Hicks will have 80 yards but no tds.

Also, Pats lose to Bengals.

-Portis lights up the Eagles with at least 100 Rushing and a TD
-Jerry Rice continues to put up Monday Night-worthy numbers
-Arizona-SF goes into overtime, with Arizona pulling the win off with a field goal.
-With the rest of the team faltering, Shockey gets 30% of Eli's passes.
-Peyton throws 4 TD passes (not exactly nonsensical), and waits for the home game next week to break the record.
-Kasay knocks 6 more field goals.
-Vick rushes for 80+ and two TDs
-Joey puts up better numbers than both Mannings...combined :P

Here's a not-so-crazy crazy prediction: Navarre throws for his 1st pro TD (assuming he's still starting for the Cards) and Croom finds the endzone as well. Croom's my pick for reach-of-the-week start - especially for disgruntled Barlow owners.

i have no problem running with the Cincy upset thing... Cincy rolls over NE in a shootout/blowout- 45-27- with Houz-man-what's-his-name scoring 3 TDs and the Cincy D returning a fumble or pick for a TD to seal the game.

How about David Carr matches Peyton Manning throw for throw through 3 quarters, forcing Manning to play long enough to throw 7 TDs?

Or, Jerome Bettis ends the day with more TDs than Atlanta's entire team.

Niners beat Arizona by a TD at most, but it'll be a high-scoring game. Hicks has 100+ yards with 2 TD's. Eric Johnson has 100+ yards with a TD.

;-D
