What do you know, I was there too in the nosebleed seats. The one home game I go to every year, and at least they finished strong, but I kinda pictured this game was for Home-Field Advantage in the AFC about 6 months eariler.

I'm sorry that I ever doubted them. That game was beautiful. Simpson is a beast.

Yeah, I feel kinda stupid for not picking them. At least now, we don't have to worry about Carson Palmer's job status anymore.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

I really hope more bowl games are like that. :)

I watched it and it was pretty exciting. Though I was surprised at the lack of skill the FIU quarterback often showed.

And now to place our bets for todays bowl games:

West Virginia vs North Carolina State

Missouri vs Iowa

- I am taking Missouri and West Virginia for today.

I choose Kitna over Garrard figuring he would do more against Ari (until he broke his hip), Thomas sucked last week so I wasn't about to start him, I figured the Jets Bears game was going to be a low scoring one so I scratched Knox, and I thought Rogers would be a little off cue after his concussion. A perfect storm of mistakes and misjudgments. :/

Also, 29 fucking points for a fucking kicker? Where was this earlier in the season, Seabass!?

Whatever, it's been a great season and it was pretty fun. I might have to do it again next year.

I have them picked as well. NC State was alright this season, but can't handle WVA. Iowa is overrated and I think the Tigers will run all over them.

I have also had a great deal of fun with this

Unfortunately for me Victory is still not assured and I have to hope Akers helps but me far enough out in front that I can officially call this season a success.

I'm surprised that Shaun O'Hara made it.

I mean he was out for some time and yet he somehow made the Pro Bowl roster. Snee and Tuck deserved it though.

I tell you what, It seems like every team I picked so far has lost, {except for 1.} Is it me, or is most of the BG losers seem to forget that they are in a bowl game now? At the very least, they could've have should some damn effort out there and tried to make the game close, if not win them, with the exceptions of the Independance and the Pizza bowl games, where they were actually close games. Being outmatched is one thing, but for some, it's almost like they don't want to be there for some reason.

And a big WTF? to Missouri right now. Why aren't these guys blowing out an overrated, talent-stripped team in Iowa that couldn't stop Pryor on a 4th and 10 to win the game, is way beyond me. I don't know how they beat Michigan in Ann Arbor, and then turn around and tank the rest of the season the way they did, and now finally show up to play tonight.

Missouri should really be playing better than this right now. It just doesn't even seem like the effort is there and they really could be putting the smackdown on FUCKING Iowa right about now. Oh dear, what is going through their heads.

SEC teams better not lose a fucking game... or else...

You had Boise State and Air Force picks correct. TheSongSalad is kicking everyone's ass with 8-2 picks at the moment. I'll post an update in a couple of days.

As for the bowl games, I'll think they will start picking up when we reach the larger schools (except for the miserable Champs Sports Bowl :/). Out of tomorrow's games, I'm interested in the Alamo Bowl between the OK State and Arizona. Hopefully it'll be high scoring shootout.

You said it. Iowa is just being more physical than Mizzou at the moment. Hopefully they'll put a drive or two together.

I think both of us will remember that sometimes, even in Fantasy, the difference between winning and losing is 1 yard

I know I won't forget that excruciating .08 point loss

Of course I'm going to remember that matchup for a long time. I remember it ended up being .08 due to one of my QBs started kneel down at the end of the game. I remember shouting at the TV for him not to go backwards so much, heh.

You know if you had won that game you might end up in the the bottom bracket away from illuminate and then could have beaten him this week.

Oh yeah, Mizzou is up by four now.

Yeah i would say this was one of my best fantasy football teams i've had though i won my league now 3 years in a row just the fact of having the 2 MVP QBs in Brady & Vick then 3 of the top 5 leading rushers in Foster,Jones-Drew & Turner along with the best reciever in the game in Andre Johnson and reciver that led the league in TDs in Bowe then 2 of the best defenses in the league with the Steelers & Jets,overall just a perfect team. ^_^

Next year i hope to get a 12 team league going. :)

Philadelphia played flat last night against the Vikings, which could be a bad sign because they have to play 2 more games within 13 days. Vick also had a game which he'll probably want to forget, throwing some Int's and some near Int's to a crappy Minnesota secondary, along with getting sacked a lot as well.

With Philly's loss, Chicago has clinched the 2nd seed and a bye in the playoffs, which is a scary thing for the rest of the NFC, considering last time they had a bye in the playoffs {'06}, they were in the Super Bowl. {I know that doesn't mean much at all, but still.} The offense has certainly changed over the years, but the core of that defense is still intact from 2006, and the rest of the NFC better watch out.

As for the Insight Bowl, I can't believe that Missouri, the #12 ranked team in the nation, the same team that took down Oklahoma, fell apart to an overrated Iowa team that was in total free fall after their defensive gaff against Ohio State, and have nearly half of their team suspended as well. I guess we were too quick to give Missouri national respect, especially when they couldn't handle a 4th quarter lead against a crappy Iowa team.

Maryland vs East Carolina

Illinois vs Baylor

Oklahoma State vs Arizona

Those are the three bowl games for today. Why don't we just announce our picks and talk about the games up in here? On a side note, I can't wait for the SEC teams to start playing. Tennessee has a game tomorrow and I will for sure root for them.

I guess I will even root for *sigh* Alabama (the motherfuckers).

Picking up Vick was the difference maker. If he wasn't the top fantasy points earner this season, he was close to it.

There are no Bills players on the roster as well. No surprise as well, though I'm glad to see Suh made it.

All my bowl picks are here and most of the other peeps are after mine as well. The Alamo Bowl is the only one worth watching; maybe the Texas Bowl as well just to see Baylor play in a bowl game, which they haven't done in sixteen years.

I'm just going to cram everything into this post. Updated through the Armed Forces Bowl which was pretty good. I thought SMU would pull off the comeback but they just came up short. The Alamo Bowl last night on the other hand wasn't too pretty.

The Pinstripe Bowl isn't too shabby halfway through, however the field at Yankee Stadium looks bad. Also a SEC finally plays tonight in the Music City Bowl with Tennessee and anything that isn't a total blowout is a victory for Washington in the Holiday Bowl.

I throw a pretty accurate and strong ball anywhere from 0 to 40 yards out. Even though I only threw the ball a minimum amount of times as a running back and linebacker in both high school and semi-pro I would have made a great quarterback if it's what the team needed me to do.

So speak for yourself. :P

I was probably too short though at 5 foot 11 inches. I had the body of a running back for sure.

Ha! Like I said before, I know little about college football. I just went down and picked a team on really know background knowledge of how good they were. Luck will only get me so far.

I thought UNC totally blew it with their horrible clock management at the end of regulation. Lucky they got that one second back and tied it up. Man it was a good game.

And what is this? Washington is up on Nebraska.

Damn, it seems like Tennessee lost and brought shame upon the SEC tsk tsk tsk. Also, Washington is indeed up on Nebraska. I have little doubt that the Cornhuskers will come back though.

But, who knows... all my picks are wrong.

MIA @ NE

Even though Tom Brady is going to sit early, I'm still going with New England on this one.

TB @ NO

Going with the Saints at home.

CAR @ ATL

Atlanta bounces back at home against a worthless Carolina team that has already packed it in.

MIN @ DET

The Lions make it 3 wins in a row at home.

OAK @ KC

I've got the Raiders winning, it's been quite a while since the Raiders went 6-0 in their own division.

BUF @ NYJ

After trashing the Bills for most of this season, I'll throw them a bone and say that they win against the Jets.

CIN @ BAL

I'm not going to doubt Cincinnati this week, they'll win against the Ravens.

PIT @ CLE

Going with the Steelers

JAC @ HOU

I'm going with Houston on this one, Garrard and Jones-Drew are too way to banged up to play.

DAL @ PHI

Philadelphia bounces back at home, I think they got hosed last week with the whole Tuesday night fiasco.

NYG @ WAS

I've got the G-men on this one {Giants}

SD @ DEN

I've got San Diego, I still don't trust Tim Tebow yet.

ARI @ SF

Why did they fire Mike Singletary with 1 game left, I'll never know, I have the 49ers easily against a worthless Arizona team.

CHI @ GB

Da Bears, no question. Green Bay digged themselves too big of a hole to get out of right now.

TEN @ IND

Peyton Manning+Home game+Crappy Titans team= Indy wins, and clinch the AFC South.

STL @ SEA

Going with Sam Bradford and the Rams, IMO you got to have a .500 record at the very least, if you want to make the playoffs.

What about that Music City Bowl? I wouldn't expect that 2 joke football programs have such an exciting matchup like this, this is certainly the best bowl game so far. Too bad that Tennessee lost, {considering I did pick them to win.} although I kinda expected that to happen, considering that Derek Dooley is an idiot, and the team does stupid shit on both sides of the ball.

Myself, I can't wait for the Gator Bowl. A lot of people seem to be picking Miss St. for some reason, but I really believe that they are really underestamating Michigan, and how good their offense is.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

I admit it the end result wasn't to shabby, and it was raining pretty bad for a while, but some of his throws had about as much power behind them as someone like you or I could get.
I throw a pretty accurate and strong ball anywhere from 0 to 40 yards out. Even though I only threw the ball a minimum amount of times as a running back and linebacker in both high school and semi-pro I would have made a great quarterback if it's what the team needed me to do.

So speak for yourself. :P

I was probably too short though at 5 foot 11 inches. I had the body of a running back for sure.

I wasn't trying to insinuate that you or I couldn't throw the ball, don't worry lol. I was just saying that some of his throws had a lot more arc on them then I'd seen a pro QB do before. I don't throw a bad ball either, but I just don't have the arm strength to make the intermediate to long throws without putting enough arc on them to get them picked off.

I guess last week showed me though. I'm not ready to say he'll be great yet, but I'm starting to think there's something to that never pick against Tebow stuff.

And I don't know if anyone's taking the bowl game picks seriously or anything, but I thought I'd share a tip I used in making my picks:

When two teams are pretty even, and one has a freshmen QB, I usually pick that team. It's common for freshmen QBs make more progress in the practices before a bowl game than almost any other point in their careers. Jake Heaps etc. had their best games of the year in the bowl games. Other than that, I try to get inside a team's head. If they're in a situation where they're naturally motivated to do well, the often will beat out a more talented team that is disappointed with what bowl they ended up in.

Also, did anyone see the end of the K-State game? How was a salute excessive celebration? That was on of the strangest calls I've ever seen.
