    The company I work for is having this contest thingy where you pick the football teams that will win this weekend. The person who picks the most correct teams wins. The prize is a stupid bottle of wine but still...I wanna win! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I would welcome any knowledgeable opinions on which team is better of EACH pair listed below that are playing each other. So far, I have been picking based on team name (hehe) or what teams that I've heard were "good" in the past.

    Atlanta at New Orleans
    Carolina at Detroit
    Cincinnati and Tennessee
    Cleveland at Baltimore
    Jacksonville at Pittsburg
    Miami at Tampa
    Minnesota at Chicago
    NY Giants at Dallas
    Washington at Kansas City
    New England at Denver
    NY Jets at Buffalo
    San Diego at Oakland
    Houston at Seattle

    I have made bold the teams *I* think might win...based totally on... ignorance. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] How off am I?

    OK, I have
    Atlanta at New Orleans
    Carolina at Detroit
    Cincinnati and Tennessee
    Cleveland at Baltimore
    Jacksonville at Pittsburg
    Miami at Tampa
    Minnesota at Chicago
    NY Giants at Dallas
    Washington at Kansas City
    New England at Denver
    NY Jets at Buffalo
    San Diego at Oakland
    Houston at Seattle

    So, we differ on a couple there. Really I would stay away from Oalkand and get on Cincinnati over Tennessee.

    Good luck!

    Here was my pick:

    Atlanta
    Carolina
    Cincinnati
    Baltimore
    Pittsburgh
    Tampa Bay
    Chicago
    Dallas*
    K.C.
    Denver
    Buffalo*
    Oakland*
    Seattle

    * Favorite teams / irrational picks

    When both teams are of comparable strength, it is usually good to go with the home team. Good luck!

    Suzanne, your pics sound like the logic employed by a couple of the gals at work. The very first week of the season, one gal actually won. But that logic was good for that week only!

    Well I USED to watch a LITTLE football when I was much younger so the teams I knew of who were "good" were Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers. I don't know if they are still good. Redskins used to be good. Are they still? I have no clue!

    This will be interesting. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Opinions sure can vary.

    Well this is hard. Nobody agrees! lol I have to fill this thing in today.

    Dave...I'm confused. Are the teams you think will win the ones in caps or the ones in the left-hand column??

    Well I've filled in my card. I'll let you know if I win. They don't tell you how many you got right...only if you win.

    Wish me luck! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    (I really want to win the grand prize which is a 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid but the odds are pretty slim for that since its a country-wide contest.)

    Dallas and Green Bay good at the same time? That could have been ~10 years ago or !966 / 1967. The very first football game I ever saw was the famous "Icebowl game", when the Packers got by the Cowboys 21-17. I felt sorry for the Cowboys and rooted for them ever since. When the Packers played the Raiders in Super Bowl 2, I felt sorry for the Raiders and became a Raider fan.
