Hognostications NFL Week 5

Postby Redskin in Canada » Mon Oct 02, 2006 9:15 am

The dust has not settled after a tumultuous win against the Jags and here I am starting the thread for NFL Week 5. I am posting the schedule now so that you can start -thinking- about your picks with enough time in advance.

You know the drill. I do not need to remind you how critical just a couple of picks can be EVERY week among this VERY TOUGH crowd. Some posters have a tremendous pace and others recovered A LOT of ground from the bottom of the standings to a level of traditional respectability. Others had a tough week and their updated overall standings reflect this fact. Incredible, how a few games change things in a tight race.

Enjoy.

Rams at Packers 1:00 PM
Bills at Bears 1:00 PM

Two games that jump right out at me as being great games to watch:

Redskins-Giants (not just because I'm a homer)

Cowboys-Eagles (fans getting their batteries ready for T.O.)

I was in Vegas for most of last week and noticed that the giants were favored by 6.5 on Friday :shock: I would expect a small change in those odds the next few days!

The Redskins will be 3-2 next week :D
The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

Now we understand!!! :shock:

It was too good to be true. 12 - 1 before Monday night? So, trips are always useful, eh? :lol:

By the way, the line is today: NYG -4.0 -110 :shock:

Those of you who come to these threads in search of news and discussions about our Hognostications really should remember that we have a Main Hognostications Page and the links there will give you A LOT of information that was unavailable last season.

In addition to the Picks form that you fill-in every week, you have:

- Weekly Pool Standings

- Season Pool Standings

- Pool Consensus

- Pool History

and last but not least, ALL the player STATPACKS:

- Player Statpacks

I have the impression that VERY FEW of you have pressed these links lately, the last one in particular. Go ahead. Visit the main page regularly and keep youselves informed.

Okay, after reviewing this week's games, I am predicting two upsets. No, I'm not picking them in my Hognostication picks (because I'm lame), but I really think these two teams have a chance and upsetting the favored pick:

1. The Bills beat the Bears.

and

2. The Jets beat the Jaguars.

Tune in next week and see how I did.

You mean tune in next week and see how many more games you can butter both sides of the bread on? :lowblow:

If you were REALLY predicting two upsets... then your picks would reflect that, wouldn't they?

If you don't actually pick the Bills and the Jets, then aren't you really just voicing the two games you were least confident in your selections?
Sean Taylor was one of a kind, may he rest in peace.

Yep.

There are just two games that I have a "hunch" about. My "hunch" isn't enough to pursuade me to actually pick them, however.

Now, if my "gut was telling me", that would be a different story!

Who says a lesson in anatomy is not useful to prepare our Hignostications! :lol:

By the way guys, I already submitted my Counterpoint and picks for the Hognosticationssection of the board. They willbe posted soon, usually by Thursday sometime. Good luck and let's get that PRFECT score.
