#2:   Entered by alex (135) on 1/15/2007  »  Reference URL
Date Made:1/12/2007 [Outcome will be known by 1/14/2007]
Prediction:The New Orleans Saints (-5) will beat the Philadelphia Eagles and cover the spread in the second round of the 2007 NFL Playoffs (2006-2007 season).
Prediction Description:Bill says "The Pick: New Orleans 34, Philly 16." He also says "I loved the Saints in this one even before Lito Sheppard got hurt. Blitzing Drew Brees is like trying to trap Nash and the Suns -- just a bad idea all the way around. So how can Philly possibly stop them with a tired, banged-up defense and just six days to prepare? You got me. That means the Eagles need to turn this game into a shootout ... which would be fine if they didn't have Jeff Garcia leading the offense in the deafening Superdome. I keep seeing McNabb staring out to the field with one of those "I'm bummed out we're getting crushed, but on the other hand, thank God I don't have to spend the spring and summer listening to local radio shows bitching that they should trade me" looks on his face."
Outcome:Wrong

Date Made:1/12/2007 [Outcome will be known by 1/14/2007]
Prediction:The Chicago Bears (-8.5) will beat the Seattle Seahawks and cover the spread in the second round of the 2007 NFL Playoffs (2006-2007 season).
Prediction Description:Bill says, "The Pick: Chicago 33, Seattle 8." Bill also says "I know this flies in the face of my "No NFC team should be favored by more than three points over any other NFC team" proclamation last week. I just can't stomach the thought of backing a bad playoff team on the road. Alexander looks as though he's playing at 50 percent. Hasselbeck has turned into the new Jake Delhomme -- someone who's been stinking up the joint for a solid year and everyone refuses to admit it. The defense looks terrible, and so does the special-teams play. This isn't a team built to win a road game in January in crappy weather. Couldn't the Bears blow Seattle out without getting anything from their QBs? I say yes. Besides, I haven't seen anyone take Chicago this week. And you know what that means."
Outcome:Wrong
