Crazy week with Thanksgiving. I would suggest that we get our picks for all of the games in early. You are more than welcome to CHANGE a pick in the Thursday games prior to the kickoff of that day's games and to CHANGE any of the weekend or Monday games prior to the kickoff of the 1st Sunday game.

That would really help me since last minute nagging could be futile. Thanks.

Week #12 games:

Green Bay @ Detroit
Oakland @ Dallas
NY Giants @ Denver
Sunday, Nov 29th, "Early" games:
Tampa Bay @ Atlanta

Cleveland @ Cincinnati
Carolina @ NY Jets
Seattle @ St Louis
Washington @ Phil
Indianapolis @ Houston
"Late" games:

Jacksonville @ San Francisco
Chicago @ Minnesota

Monday, November 30th:
New England @ New Orleans (plus final score)

16 games + 1 final score.
Here are your options: Pick the 3 Thursday games and come back by kickoff of the 1st game on Sunday with the rest of your choices;
OR pick all the way through in one fell swoop (or one swell foop) knowing that you can come back on Sunday and CHANGE picks as long as that is done by the kickoff of the 1st game.

@ehBeth,
go for philly, they are in deep panic mode and will play like they did last sunday.

I was telling spendi a while back that one can pick these games out of a sock and do well. I see that this has not been overturned as a ayastem.

Who was picking the games by the restaurants in the opposing cities?

@farmerman,
I went by famous sandwiches one week. Philly was selected of course - and won that week.

@farmerman,
If you pick them out of a sock there's a very high probability that after, say, 250 games you will score .500. The leaders in the standings are .700+.

@realjohnboy,
Week 12, Thursday

Green Bay
Dallas
NY Giants



I'm logging in @ my gf's in No. Va. Luckily for me she's a sports fan but it actually wasn't a pre-req. She's orig. from CT but 'cause she's been living here in Wash-DC-area, she's a sports fan of the local teams. I'm a big Red Sawx fan and she is NOT a Yankees fan so we're good there. She's a George Mason Patriots college b-ball fan as well as a Wash Nationals MLB fan.

In fact, we celebrated our relationship (as well as my birthday) in late Sept. at Camden Yard, where they've one of the best and most fun stadiums, as well as packing in 85% Red Sawx fans. Gotta love a place that appreciates your nown team to such an extent.

@Ragman,
Camden Yard is a major outpost of Red Sox Nation.
It must really piss off the locals.

@realjohnboy,
Week #12, the rest of the picks

Falcons
Dolphins
Giants

Sunday early games
Falcons
Dolphins
Bengals
Seahawks - Rams have nothing to gain plus no motivation.
Jets - Rex Ryan gets much more involved w/ Offense, but both teams play sloppily.
Eagles
Colts
Chargers
49-ers
Titans
Vikings
Ravens - Big Ben still hears the bells ringing in his tower.

Mon night
NE Pats best matchup in the season as Pats get back their meanness and prove their intent to play at a championship-level.
Pats 34 - 24

@George,
oops...my error...My thursday night first two picks should be

Cowboys
Green Bay Packers


If the local fans are pissed, they sure don't show their loyalty by showing up. I asked around and it seems Red Sawx fans can't buy ANY tickets at sold-out Fenway. They appreciate their team enough to travel 350 miles and see that gorgeous stadium at Camden Yard and toast their team at the Inner Harbor pubs.
