Let's finish this prior to COB Thursday. GL


I will be your Huckleberry.

In the interest of full disclosure, there is just 1 game on Thursday....buddy.

The usual Sunday games are on Saturday, except for the Sunday Night game and MNF. Bold will be my changes. Not a whole lot of changes visible, but I will take a loss in this TD and predict a couple of upsets. Took the Panthers last week.

Miami over the Patriots.

Seahawks over the 49ers.

Leaving in 24 hours for the Holidays!!! Happy Holidays, FN!!!

Rapid Fiyah, boi!!!!


Okay Huck!

Let's do this!

1st, realized I left Saturday out of the mix, Typo. Sue me!

Dolphins over the Patriots??????

Brady and crew want to make sure they have 1st rnd bye and home field throughout the playoffs. They are not going to take their foot off the pedal and let the Dolphins beat them in Foxboro. NO WAY! Be too easy to let Baltimore slip into the #1 seed slot if they did. Pats win.

2nd. Seahawks over the 49rs???? If the 49rs defense did nothing to impress Monday night then something is wrong with your eyes. Go today to the doctor and get your eyes checked. While you are there, check and see how Big Ben's foot is doing?

Not sure exactly how the 2nd bye in the NFC plays out here, but I still see New Orleans and San Fran with the same record at this point. However, with the records the same, San Fran currently holds a 1 game edge in conference play and I think that is a tie breaker for playoff seeding. That being the case, they DO have something besides rivalry to play for against the Seahawks.

Bottom Line , Niners Win .

Bottom Line, Patriots beat Dolphins.

Come on FN should not be that hard to see this one.

Bring it!


Reggie Bush ran 25 times for 203 yards last week and is averaging 5.0ypc (9th best in the NFL) this season with the Dolphins. Seems like he just needed a change of scenery to be the RB people thought he would be when he came to the NFL from USC.

Miami has won 5 of their last 7 games. They are not the same team NE beat to open the regular season. Miami only allows 19.2ppg, 5th best in the NFL.

The 49ers have a very short week after playing on Monday Night Football and playing on Saturday. The Seahawks have won 5 of their last 6 games and are playing well right now.

Seattle's defense is playing better as of late. They are allowing just 19.5ppg (6th best) and they play better at home. They are 4-3, including a huge win over the Ravens during their winning streak. And the 49ers have slipped up on the road lately with their loss to the Cardinals.

Marshawn Lynch is a bruising RB that wears down a defense and probably the most physical runner the SF will face this season.

Bottom line, this season has proved the old adage, "Any given Sunday another team can beat another team."

I am taking a couple upsets.


I don't need to know what Bush has done lately, or what the Dolphins current trend is to know that the Patriots are still WAY Better than Miami and this game means way too much to NE to let the Dolphins come into their home and steal a very important game.

I also don't see Seattle returning to the playoffs this year, EVEN IF they win out. They would still need help with either Detroit or Atlanta losing their last two games. All this is not impossible but highly unlikely. Seattle would also have to beat SF and AZ, whom are both on winning streaks to finish the season. Not totally impossible but HIGHLY unlikely for all the pieces to fall in place for it to occur.

And again, let's not forget here SF has a say in all this. They are NOT going to lay down for the Hawks and let them cruise into the playoffs on their coat tails. Again, this game means a lot for the Niners for seeding in the playoffs. That first round bye would go a long way toward getting some of their key guys healed and back into action going into their first playoff game. IF the Niners beat the Hawks this week the last game of the season might be a non factor IF the Falcons win this week.

Merry Christmas FN!


"I don't need to know what Bush has done lately, or what the Dolphins current trend is to know that the Patriots are still WAY Better than Miami"

Pretty sure the Saints are way better than the Rams.

The Ravens are way better than the Seahawks.

The Packers are way better than the Chiefs.

Getting the point? Upsets happen, its a way of life the NFL.

Bush has had 3 straight 100 yard games, capped by his huge game against the Bills. He seems to be finally settling in as an every down back. He is also a very good receiver out of the backfield for Matt Moore to throw the ball to.

The bottom line is the 49ers have an even shorter week with this game since games are being played on Saturday and they just played on Monday.

Seattle's defense has been getting better. They have allowed just 14.7ppg the last 6 games, including stopping Philly's potent running game. As well as shutting down Steven Jackson.

The Seahawks should be able to contain Frank Gore, putting a lot of pressure on Alex Smith to make plays without the benefit of a running game. I like Seattle to win.

Agreed. Also think Zona and the Jets win. But I'm too lazy to take this.

I don't feel like arguing NFL predictions.

Changes would have been...

Jets over Giants
Chiefs over Raiders
Falcons over Saints

Falcons over Saints? Are you high?

The Falcons and Saints always play very close games. The Falcons took the Saints to OT, and had a good chance of winning the first go around if they would have converted on 4th and inches. In recent years, more often than not, the Falcons and Saints split their season series.

I believe it's 5 games in a row decided by 3 pts or less. But I'm beginning to suspect that the Saints have gotten into the dirty birds heads. Couldn't understand why they tried the run up the middle instead short out to Gonzales that had been working all day.

As much as I hate to say it, if SD plays as good as they have been DET might be in trouble.

Miami over NE? In NE? Not a chance.

I like KC over Oak as well. Oakland is done.

Seattle over SF isn't that far-fetched. Seattle is hot right now and is awfully tough to beat in Seattle and they have a solid defense themselves.

SF does have a lot to play for as if they win out they will be the #2 seed as they have the tie breaker over NO due to Conference record. But Seattle is playing for their playoff lives and if they win out they have a decent shot of making the playoffs as well. Ask the Ravens about how a great defense plays on the road vs home. A great defense guarantees nothing if your offense isn't consistent (like SF's loss at Arizona a couple weeks ago).
