Ravens 13 @ Titans 10

jeremy.jpg
Jeremy
Both of these teams are good, and yet I wouldn't trust either of them for some reason. I'll take the Vet and the home team.
matt.jpg
Matt
I have no idea what to think about either of these two teams.
sarah.jpg
Sarah
All home teams, all the time.
jon.jpg
Jon
I think I'm falling into the trap of watching a team one week and being impressed and then disregarding a team that is clearly really good. I just want to pick Baltimore.

Cardinals 33 @ Panthers 13

jeremy.jpg
Jeremy
Cardinals should lose this game big, which means you shouldn't be surprised if this is the only game with any amount of drama near the end at all.
matt.jpg
Matt
Again, I'm picking against them, but I think I'll be pulling for the Cardinals to win.
sarah.jpg
Sarah
Frankly, the Cardinals shocked me last week by winning. That doesn't mean I'll try picking them this week.
jon.jpg
Jon
Easiest pick right? Like Indianapolis last week!

Eagles 23 @ Giants 11

jeremy.jpg
Jeremy
The Eagles may have won against the Vikings, but it was hardly impressive. Save for one busted play they really didn't do a whole lot. Once again though, would anyone really be that shocked by Eagles 30 Giants 10? How about Eagles 3 Giants 30?
matt.jpg
Matt
I'll take the Giants.
sarah.jpg
Sarah
Is anyone else already tired of all those Turbo Tax/H&R Block commercials? I am, they're driving me crazy!
jon.jpg
Jon
I just like New York better. The team, that is.

Chargers 24 @ Steelers 35

jeremy.jpg
Jeremy
Phillip "F-Bomb" Rivers' team seems to be pretty hot right now, and I'm not so sure the Steelers are all that great. Still, the Steelers seem to find ways to win, and the Chargers' mediocre record wasn't the complete aberration people are making it out to be. They layed more than their share of eggs this year.
matt.jpg
Matt
I feel like the Chargers can pull the upset here. Plus, I am kind of sick of the Steelers.
sarah.jpg
Sarah
Maybe the Chargers will get in because they were only 8-8 this year instead of their usual 14-2 or whatever it is that they usually are. I may change this pick depending on the status of Big Ben.

Darren Sproles is the greatest thing since Darren Sproles!

You know what I'm getting a little sick of? (besides being sick) People need to stop with the whole "so-and-so finished 2nd in MVP voting" when the "election" was a complete landslide. It's factually accurate that Brett Favre "finished second" last year, and Chad Pennington "finished second" this year, but there's also an implied closeness by making that statement that is intellectually dishonest. In Favre's case he was the lone dissenting (completely preposterous) vote, in Pennington's there were more votes cast for non-winners, but it was still a landslide, and he didn't even get second outright.

Maybe this is just me nitpicking again, but I feel like a lot of the time the writers are almost intentionally trying to deceive the readers who might not know the actual results. If you just want to get across that Pennington must have had a good year, because he received a handful of MVP votes, then just say that. If you want to use as an example Favre must have done something right last year because he was the lone Non-Brady vote, then just say that.

Also, the feed we've been using for live scoring went away for the playoffs, in case anyone noticed that hasn't been working. Maybe I'll look into another feed, but I don't know how much work I want to put into the code I'm going to have thrown away by next season.

I noticed that the live scoring didn't. I just assumed that Clint Howard stopped working for free and we weren't willing to pay him.

speaking of which, did anyone realize that Chad Pennington won the NFL comeback player of the year for the 2nd time, and the previous time was just two years ago. Does that really qualify as "being away"? And, how many chances do we give people these days? (Kerry Collins and Jake Delhomme came in 2nd and 3rd respectively, so they clearly are the 2nd and 3rd best players were categorically sucked last year or in previous years).

edit: Also, does a player have to have been good in the past to win comeback player of the year? What if Gus Ferrotte becomes starter for the Vikings next year and has a great year. Does he qualify for comeback player? I mean, honestly, can you "go away" if you were never "here" to begin with?

Edit2: Collins and Delhomme received the same number of votes.

Yeah, that's weird. First of all, is it something to be proud of, or is it a backhanded complement in trophy form? He probably deserves it seeing as he was thrown under the bus, left for dead, and picked up by a 1-15 team, who he then took to the playoffs. Still, seems like you should have to be good for a while, then suck for a while, then comeback, and having 2 of them can't be a great thing.

There are no hard-and-fast rules, I assume, but would Tom Brady be "eligible" for this next season?

In general I would say yes, you have to be good at some point. Let's say someone with high expectations who sucked, like McFadden, has a good season next year. I don't think he should be in the running, since he's not "coming back" from anything. However, if you were a perpetual slightly above-average journey man like Gus, and you had a sudden Renaissance of sorts, I think you could be in the mix.

As for Brady being a candidate, if Pennington can get it with just one year off, I think Brady will probably be considered.

Yeah, but Brady didn't struggle this season, he just didn't play because he got hurt.

Hold up! You've been ranting all season about how much the loss of Favre made the Packers suck this year, but you don't think an MVP vote for him last year was fair? The Pats went 11-5 without Brady (5 less wins), the Packers went 6-10 without Favre (7 less wins). If anything, they should retroactively give him the award for 2007. emoticon

Well, for one thing I'm not a huge fan of the notion that you have to be the lynch pin of the team, or even on a good team, to be eligible. It should be a nod to the person who had the statistically best season. How good/bad your team would be without you should be a tie breaker, if anything at all. Secondly, it was ridiculous at the time, and we didn't know the Packers were going to go on to be stupid.

Well, ok, if that's your criteria I'll let you off the hook. I guess I'd personally vote for the most important lynch pin, as subjective as that is. Offensive Player of the Year is for straight stats, which is why Brees won this year.

I do not make my picks with some sort of strategy for beating other NutCanners

With that said, there could potentially be a shift of powers at the top of the Picks leaderboard. Jeremy and Scott are 1 win behind Matt, but Scott and Jeremy have 2 picks that differ from Matt. Let the games begin!
