Re: Don's Crystal Ball Week 2 picks

The more I think about the loss in NY and ahead to tomorrow's game the more convinced I become about Zorn and the offense going no huddle w/ set plays until they start to move the ball. And... if drives stall out again once Zorn takes over the play calling the offense should immediately go back to a predetermined set of plays. I think the strategy makes sense because it 1) allows the offense to practice the set plays to perfection and execution has been a major problem 2) it adds randomness to the offense which immediately helps us - otherwise superior coaching minds opposite our sideline are predicting Zorn's next move based on what just happened and Zorn doesn't look anywhere near ready to match tactic for tactic 3) the no huddle option usually puts defenses back on their heals and we need as much of that as possible.

I hope to see it tomorrow but who knows what Zorn has in mind.

Re: Don's Crystal Ball Week 2 picks

I'm not saying the Skins need to win tomorrow or the season's done, but I need to see some offense, especially against a banged up Saints D. Campbell needs to start getting the ball out quicker and we need to hit some plays downfield. With the injuries to the Saints secondary and our past history of success against them (for whatever that's worth), I think the time is right for the offense to start to break out. And I think our D will be better than D'Boyz thinks (hell, we were missing Springs last week, had Rocky and Carlos in there first real game in a year, and Landry hadn't played basically all pre-season). They'll give up some points to Drew B (Shockey and Bush scare me a bit against our LB's), but they'll make enough plays to win. By the way D'Boyz, you talk a lot about the Giants early success in the game, but what about their complete lack of success in the 2nd half....? I pick the Skins in this one, 24-20....

I'll be keeping a close eye on it. 68% is very strong, much better than any handicapping service.

I said that because our defense will play well, It was top ten last year and we got Rocky and Carlos back and added J. Tayor

Re: Don's Crystal Ball Week 2 picks

I must say, only a pu$$y picks a team to win, but goes against them with the spread. Stop hedging, if you are going to pick the favorite, pick the favorite with the spread, too. Typical candy-a$$ fairy Cowb!tch fan.

What That's not a Burn!!! that's stupid and not knowing how to play the spread like last week game between NE and KC everybody could say that NE will win the game but it's stupid to thing with a banged up brady and every thing else that they would win by almost 17 points that's not knowing hot to play the game.

Re: Don's Crystal Ball Week 2 picks

Man I got the bad end of the stick on the Was vs NO game but it was a greeeeeeaaat game and Was finally showed the explosivness of the offense we were looking for great game guys I was at the edge of my sit the whole time and you can't ask for more.

Finally we saw Moss of old I haven't seen him play like that in 2 years and Portis maaan what a game.

I was doing ok in most of the morning games but in a few second they went sour. NO was winning with 3 minutes and lost, Min lost a game that they should had won but Ind made them take FG all day they lost that game and Det after losing they came back i nthe fourth and were up by 1 25-24 and then decided to play like the same old Lions.

But still with all that I won 280 bucks in the morning games I was going to take almost 500 if N.O hadn't lost it but great morning. This were my tickets.

Ticket 1 made 175 bucks
NY -9
Buf +4
Ten +1

Ticket 2 made me 68 bucks
NY -9
KC under 36
Ten +1

Ticket 3 made me 37 bucks
NY-9
Car -3 (even)
KC Under

so can't complain

peter I bet only 120 per week and I do 3 team parlays like the one's you saw and it pays 6 to 1 if you get it right so I make like 6 bet's of 20 bucks each (not like this but you get the idea) and if I get 1 right of the 6 I make 20 bucks (the 20 they give me back and 120 I won it less but agian an example).

This way I get more chances to make money and if I get 2 tickets right that's were the money is.

Re: Don's Crystal Ball Week 2 picks

I told you about that D. J. Taylor was in Brees face all day, And if Horton plays like this all season lookout. I mean they really only gave up 10 pts, 14 if you strech it and thats pretty nice against a high-powered offense, Even without Colston
