So, are you ready for some football? Of course you are! And if you're not, then shame on you! Sol I've been authorized to release xtals to the winner of my contest, so, here is how it will work. If you're the FIRST person on my thread to 1. Correctly pick the winner if this weeks game 2. Provide the EXACT final score And 3. Provide me with a reason You'll win xtals! This week the xtal pot is at 10 xtals. If no one wins, the pit will roll over and next week we will play for 20 xtals, and so on and so on, until someone claims the prize. Any and all edited posts will be disqualified, so please don't do that. Also, please limit your self to 2 guesses Lee page. If you guess more than 2 times per page, I will not recognize any guesses beyond the second one that you post. Under normal circumstances I'd provide you with a professional analysis of the game, along with official odds from Vegas, but I simply didn't have the time today. Sorry. Anyhow, here is my moosey guess. (Feel free to steal it, as I am not allowed to win) The game Packers vs bears The venue Somewhere in Chicago Analysis: the Bears are terrible. Awful even, so I have given you an easy game to pick. Aaron Rogers is an elite QB who is still in his prime,make the pack is ready to kick some ass after their crushing play off loss. Plus, coach McCarthy has grown a manly beard for some reason. Anyhow, historically, the packers beat the Bears, both in Green Bay and Chicago, and I see no reason for that statistic to change this year. Look for a dominant packer presence, as their offense is good, and the Bears really are quite horrible on both sides of the ball. Winner: packers Final score: packers 28, Bears 17 Reason: historical trend for the last 20 years has been in green bays favor. Math doesn't lie. Anyhow, good luck on all your picks!
