I partially pick with who I want to see win, too. If it was a competition like a pick'em league, I would go a little more straight forward with the picks. But here it's just for fun. I really don't think about the picks too much.
Bears if they had Robbie Gould as kicker he would had made it, bet they wished they did not get rid of him. But someone on the Eagles, Hester partially blocked the kick so it is not all of Cody Parkey's fault for the Bears. But really in a sense, Eagles coach Pederson jinx it with icing him, Parkey should not had made the "practice" kick there or he would had made it and won the game.
Dallas Coach Jason Garrett is being criticized. Former WR Terrell Owens states that Garrett is the problem. T O tweeted about Garrett's 2-8 playoff record.
On a different subject......As a fan, you sometimes have an intuition re your favorite team.
My intuition is that the Eagles will NOT be able to beat the Saints tonight.
I hope I'm wrong though.
Moments after I post about "off to a great start" the Eagles suffer 2 defensive lineman getting injured. I'm a jinx
Here I am using edit to come back to this post at 8:17pm.
My thought is: "Oh well. They gave the Saints a scare. New Orleans made some good adjustments in the 2nd half. It helped a bit that the Eagles experienced some defensive injuries. I'm surprised that the Birds could not put any points on the scoreboard in the 2nd half."
