Well, I have the Giants game available to pick. They better not burn me like they did two years ago when they were a huge favorite and everyone was sooo confident. My other games suck though so I think I have to take the G-Men.
Are you reading this asking yourself..."Has he really carried that grudge for two years?" Yes. Yes, I have. I wanted that Sweet 16 icon dammit.
Back in those days you had to only survive past a certain week and you would get the icon. I think it was make it through week 10. Well my week 10 pick was the Giants over Minnesota that year and they were 9 point favorites or something. They ended up giving up an INT for a TD, allowing a punt return for a TD and a kickoff return for a TD en route to one friggen ugly loss at home, thus ending my bid for the Sweet Sixteen icon 1 game short. That hurt.
After that day I vowed to never entrust my life in Col.Coughlin's hands again regardless of matchup. Minnesota that day was going with Brad hasbeen Johnson because Culpepper was lost to huge knee injury a few weeks earlier and at that point Minnesota was left to the scrap heap. Well, they ended up beating the Giants that day and almost made the playoffs if I remember correctly.
Giants should win this week easily but there are a few intangibles that could effect the game. It's in another country first of all, who the heck knows how that might impact anything, will Eli suffer from jet lag and throw 4 picks? Miami's defense is underrated and could create a couple huge plays at any time. Whatever, I know if Miami wins this week half the matchup meltdown field will be screwed which would be nice for those of us who weren't able to choose between that ripe game.
