I can't decide if I should go for the unlikely win or try to rack up as many delegates (err, points) as possible in hopes of cashing them in for political capital which I can use to fundamentally change the locker room.

Well, between this contest and my pick'em at the office, I haven't picked a Giants game correctly since week 13 against the Packers and it's been longer than that vs. the spread. The Giants also knocked me out of a survivor pool early in the year against the Seahawks, a game in which they were favored by two touchdowns. I have no idea how to pick this team.

I'm not sure I've ever been so disappointed about nailing a spread.

There was a little part of me that said "Giants by 4" but then I was all like "don't be dumb, this ain't the CFL."

Should've listened to that same voice when you picked the over.

Woo hoo! #14! wait, is that good?

I think that's some sort of a daily double with my CFL Regular Season Costanza. Woo hoo indeed!

Congrats owlhouse!

And, congrats of course to owlhouse.

You've awarded me 5 points this round, although I think I should have had 0. Might have been 1--I don't remember who received the 2nd half kick. Not that it would have affected the winnings, but I think that my respectable 5t finish should actually be a much less impressive 13t or 15t.

Congratulations to almost everyone else for defeating me and to owlhouse for bringing home the prize!

Better than good. As far as I can tell, you're in some rarified company. Thanks for running the show, apoch. I always cherish an opportunity to display my ignorance.

Clearly my NFL knowledge is far superior to everyone else's on this site.

/Didn't watch a minute of the season. Hey, it's usually on at 8 am on a workday here, even if ESPN Asia deigns to show it.

//Thanks, apoch.
