Just got the sheet for the NFL picks (for entertainment purposes only, of course :p ), and I can't decide who to pick in the third column. :think

I have to pick 3 of the following:
  • Carolina
  • Dallas
  • Cincinnati
  • Seattle
  • Arizona
  • San Diego
  • Atlanta
  • Kansas City
  • Cleveland
  • Chicago
  • San Francisco
  • Jacksonville
  • New England
Anybody got any ideas? :confused:

As always-Pulling for my Chiefs! But this is a total rebuild year so it would be tough to say. Didn't Flutie go to San Diego? That might be interesting. Jacksonville and Carolina will be contenders.
So, here are the teams I would NOT pick:
  • Dallas
  • Cincinnati
  • Cleveland
  • Seattle
  • Arizona
  • Atlanta
  • Chicago
My "Who knows what the heck they will do" list:
  • KC
  • San Fransisco
  • New England

Pick for what? Loser or Winner

Winning record: Seattle, S.F, it's a toss up between San Diego and Jacksonville.

Losers: Dallas, Cincinnati, Arizona :(

We need to pick who we think will have the best records at the end of the year.

I'm kind of die-hard for Seattle (they'll keep killin' me!), but I'm not sure yet.

Seattle,
San Diego,
Kansas City.

FWIW-I think San Fransisco and Jackcsonville will have winning records. I also think the Chargers may be a sleeper. Last year although they were 1-15 they were in all their games but they had no quarterback or running game. they solved that this year with Flutie and Tomilson also they added Turner as offensive coordinator.

From what i have seen of NFL, you guys arent playing a full contact sport here. Whats with those pads and helemts!! For sure you need them sometimes when you see people jumping at them for no reason, but come on guys, have ANY of you seen the great game that is Rugby League?? or seen Rugby?? The soft ones wear protection on that, but even then it aint NOTHING like what they were in the NFL and then theres the changing of the teams after a play!! Can these players not last the distance?? Well thats how i see the game, oh and one more thing, it takes WAY too long for a game to be played.

I've watched Rugby before. It's a totally different game than Football though. Comparing Rugby to Football is like comparing Ice Hockey to LaCrosse.

Without helmets and pads NFL football hitting and tackling would kill the players most likely. There are no pile on tackles in Rugby, the players have to stay on thier feet and wait for a hand off or shovel pass. can players that do not have the ball get hit in Rugby? Are there 350+ lb. Rugby players?

Different game - not better or worse or tougher or weaker, just different.

This will turn into an American- Euro debate to no end if we try to compare :)

Hey, American football, rugby, lacrosse, ice hockey, synchronized swimming, it's all good. VARIETY fellas. Otherwise we'd all ride the same bike, play the same games, race the same races, eat the same food, etc. Variety is what makes the world go 'round!:)

Well of course people in the NFL would die with no helmets, they're taught to lead with their face for crying out loud!

For your picks:

Kansas City
Seattle (call me crazy but I got a hunch...)
San Diego

also, I think that Chicago will do well and Cinncinati could be either pretty good, or horrible (again). Akili Smith is going to be playing for his career, so I think he'll finally come around...

yzguy15- How can you pick KC, Seattle, and San Diego? They are all in the same division. They can't all break .500 unless you think Denver and Oakland are really going to stink. I don't think Denvers that good but I think Oakland will do alright and that pains me to say because I HATE the Raiders.
