IDYFT Pick'em: Conference Round

It's a question of character. The NY Jets have it. Nerfneck Turner does not, and his team reflects it. Kick another challenge flag, boners! That was awesome.

Here we are at the conference championships. There are only two games left. Consider this: in just a few weeks, we will once again be without football for seven months. So suck every drop of pleasure from these three upcoming games.

No, I am not including the Pro Bowl. Lost in the debate about when to have it is the fact: no one gives a crap about the Pro Bowl. Not the fans, not the players. Do the owners really make enough money to subject us to this? They should still select the teams, maybe donate some $ in their name to some charity. But drop the game already. Have them play a Madden football tournament instead.

But I digress.

1. Adw: 13 pts (this week +8)
2. Jess: 7 pts (this week +7)
3. MWC: 5 pts (this week +5)
4. MMan: 2 pts (this week +2)
5. Pakmstr: 1 pt (this week +1)
Big BM: 1 pt (this week +1)

Hmm..Interesting.... I don't see any picks by A.W. in last weeks comments, and somehow A.W. gets an unverifiable +8 to jump into the lead? Shanahanagins I say!

Hey a little tid-bit: If the saints make the superbowl that would make the Detroit Lions the only non-expansion team (Texans, Jags, Browns) never to play in the big game. I count the browns as an expansion team because the original brown team did win the SB as the ravens.
