As a fan of both San Fran Niners and Giants and Bdesh, I always thought they always had lot in common. Not many star players, always the underdogs, never the talk of the hour in the media. Now I can add one more thing to the list. Blackout..
The Niners game was a gimme...I knew I should have put some money on it, but chickened out.
Saints and Brees away from SuperDome production falls quite a bit + The Niners D loves turnovers, and Brees has been known to throw some from time to time. It was the upset I picked, but didn't believe in strongly enough, or else I could have made some of the money I lost from the Broncos vs Steelers game.
Despite his dodgy ankle, I thought Big Ben and the Steelers would be too good for God Boy.
Gimme? Then why did you chicken out? Everyone picked the Saints over the 9ers. No one gave them a real chance. Brees killed the Lions from down 17. And before that they were scoring 40+ points per game.
Our D did great to create all those turnovers, and stop Brees from making those shotgun plays. And it was getting scary when the offense kept coming of the field and not cashing in, 1-11 on first downs!! But WOW things turned around at the right time!

In the first line I was talking about 49ers. From what I remember they went 6-10 last season.

I get the feeling Giants will take this one home. I hope I'm wrong. I hate the manning brothers.
You can't hate the Manning bros more than Tom Queen Brady.
I'm in a huge dilemma. I want the Pats to lose, because I hate them. But now I don't want the Giants to lose because they beat us. Well, we beat ourselves. Kayle aka Kayes
But it's a rematch. And rematch always goes the other way in my weird theory (reason why I wanted to face the Saints and Packers instead of Lions and Giants, and my theory proved yet again), so Giants will lose this one.
I think I've said this before in MLB thread. When I watch the Giants and the Niners, I see many similarities between them and Bangladesh.
Kyle Williams was trending on twitter for 2 days. And he received many death threats and abuse on Facebook and twitter. At most, I'd want him to get fired, but some of these comments are way too extreme.
