Hognostications NFL Week 5

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

Any other mistake should have to stand, and I don't care how viable the excuse is. But correcting a mistake in picking against the Skins is something that I would have no problem with.

Even if it had been entirely deliberate, I would vote to allow the man to repent.

I made one pick against the Skins last year, and the feeling of self loathing is one that I would never wish on a brother from THN. It won't be happening again, UNLESS I find myself in the same unfortunate position as Irn-Bru. In that case, I'd be begging to have the pick changed. My 2 cents

No way

You -should- know that you are creating more work for the big man here. But if -he- is willing to help a Staff member in times of dire need, who am I to object?

But something else comes to mind: If you rush like that to make those picks and -still- have a better score than I do, What does that say about my picks? Depressing ... :cry:

Any body seen Jake lately??? Just wondering ... ;furious;

I sincerely hope that SkinsChic does NOT visit this thread this week. Otherwise, somebody might sleep in the dog house for the rest of the NFL week. Yes, the week includes the Monday Night game. :evil:

By the way, if all of you want to know how I start my picks, I DO take the Redskins first. I only worry about the rest of the schedule. 8)

I say Boss should change his pick only after FFA says 10 Hail To The Redskins. :wink:

Well, it is time to recapitulate the WHO IS WHO on this board:

Seven TRAITORS inducted in the Week 2 HALL OF SHAME

ATV
Countertrey
Dmkskins86
JPM36
Justice HOG
riggins85
Scottish Hog

:puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke: :puke:

One TRAITOR and lowly Blogger inducted in the Week 4 HALL OF SHAME

CHADDUKES
:puke:

Two TRAITORS and one STAFF member inducted in the Week 5 HALL OF SHAME

Jake
JPM36

:puke: :puke:

JPM36 gets the distinct privilege to be a double TRAITOR . In other words, he is the only poster on this site and until now presumably a fan that feels that his score might be more important than the loyalty to his team two weeks during the first quarter of the season. Well done. I hope you enjoy your defeat in the Hognostications competition with a very sour taste in your mouth.

To the other one, the "staff member" who did not have even the stones to come to this thread and explain WHY he supported the Giants to win, I ask one question:

Q. How would you Jake Russell explain to Chris Samuels the fact that you do not have faith and loyalty to him and the rest of his teammates to go and win in NY???

Oh, let me help ya young fella. How about something from the bottom of your heart like ...

Oh Chris, I am such a BIG FAN of you. I stand by your side, I am a REAL fan of yours and the Skins as far back as I remember. I even write Exclusive Articles for THN, you know. I am a leading example of what a young fan should be ...

... but I do not trust you. I think Lavar Arrington is going to play rings around you guys and the Giants offense with Tiki, Shockey, Plaxico and Eli are going to RUN and PASS all over you guys. :cry:


Oh, did I forget to mention that ...
Oh Chris, I am such a BIG FAN of you. I stand by your side, I am a REAL fan of yours and the Skins as far back as BLAH, BLAH, BLAH ...


And PLEASE Jake, when you speak to Chris, could you please NOT mention THN? PLEASE???

I am disappointed about your bad judgment as a fan. Enjoy your bitter pick.

Well, I've confessed, received pennance, repented, and am in good standing.

That was a trial by fire, but thanks to RiC for having the sense to slap me around (as well as my fellow staff members). Now that I'm back from the other side I'll have to incorporate a new strategy in my picks:

1. Select "All Home"
2. PICK THE SKINS
3. Make the rest of my pick changes.
4. CHECK TO MAKE SURE THE SKINS ARE PICKED
5. Write "Hail to the Redskins" in the comment section (been doing this since week 1, including this week, despite my mistake. . .)


Now, let us never speak of this again. . .

Why not? Let us have some catharsis while we are at it.

Hey Jake, how about another hint:

Oh, Mr. Gibbs, I am Jake from THN. I bleed Burgundy and Gold ...

... well, -ALMOST- all the time. I don't when you go to NY and play in Meadowlands. I bleed blue and red but only that Sunday. Other than that, I -RRRREALLYYYYY- bleed Burgundy and Gold.


I would be ASHAMED if I was YOU. Scratch that ... You should be ashamed PERIOD! Disgraceful.

How long will it take before this thread ends up linked in a NY, Dallas or Philthy board? Pitiful. :evil:

Whatever... do you really think I'm rooting for the giants just because i picked them?

And yes, the guy who wears Redskins jerseys and flies his Redskins car flag everyday is a part time fan. :roll:

You take Hognistications way too seriously. It's just picks.

And I honestly don't care what you call me. I know what I am. You can't judge me based off of ONE pick.
