GB I am out of the loop. Haven't followed it. Not even the superbowl.

My grandson is playing Jr High ball which lets me go to games.
Our ancestors gave us this. They fought to make it what it is. All we have to do is defend it.

Without seeing more and judging from last year every pick you have could be good. I think NE will win and maybe Denver....There will probably be a couple upsets.

In addition Vikings are favored by 6.5 pts vs 49ers... I say my VIKES won't cover; they could even lose... :cry2:
VIKINGS 23
49ers 21

$100 on 49ers +6.5 pts.... pays back 195 or $95 profit
risk 100 to win 95

I hate Thursday night games even more than Monday night games. Games should all be played on Sunday, either 1:00 or 4:00.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

What are the odds on all the players standing for the national anthem? Let me know when that happens and maybe I will watch NFL once again. In the mean time it is college ball or the local high school kids.

The NFL Dave is down another 13%, to start out the season, they have chose to cut their own throat, watch Nike follow the same road.

Nike will be fine, they know what they're doing, 79% of their customers are liberals under 35 years old.
The people that are upset don't buy 'em to start and they are getting a ton of free advertising.
Nike did plenty of market surveying before making their decision, stock dropped $3 but rebounded.

But it's massively up for the past 12 months. I think they'll be OK.

$100 loss
Vikings 24
SF 49ers 16
favored by 6.5 won by 8 pts

Spent $100 to guarantee a Vikings victory, Spielman should put me on their payroll to insure team wins. ;-)
The Vikings under Coach Zimmer are 32-4 when they score 21+ points.

rb Dalvin Cook is a great pass catcher out of the backfield, but only averaged 2.5 yds on the ground.
Halfway through the 3 quarter and up 24-13 they should have brought in the big back Latavius Murray to control time
of possession and close out the game and to rest Cook... 16 games... they're going to want him fresh all season.
