Need help from realists.

31 posts in this topic

Ok I've been doing my weekly football pool at work for the past 3 years and no matter what have always picked the Panthers every week. However I've been on fire this season and have won 3 weeks out of the past 14. Now I find myself in first place by ONE POINT with 3 weeks left. If I maintain first place I win $1200. So I'm torn on this week. I just feel like the Chargers have our number. Please everyone for a second take the homer glasses off and give me a realistic prediction for tomorrow's game.

The chargers have our number? I think we have won 3 of 4 games against the Chargers all time.

Well find a way to screw us out of a #1 pick in the draft one way or another.

My prediction: We win out and it screws us out of a player we need... Go with the Panthers

Yeah, because that's relevant.

When someone says "they have our number" it is usually in regards to a recent ability to beat us. It usually refers to the history of the match-up. If you were attempting to convey something else I apologize.

I guess you were saying "the Chargers have our number" on paper? theoretically in your head? When you run simulations on Madden? I have no clue what your point was

Rivera, Chud, Turner all from San Diego. Rivera has lost both games to the Bears. I just feel like he gets rattled when going up against teams he has history with. Also we will be without key starters again.

Well, it sounds like you have this all figured out then. Great post.....

Probably the biggest 'realist' here. Personally, I think we will win this one but it will be close. But I lost $500 on the first Falcon game so not sure what that says. Could have had a couple thousand :(.

Your in first place betting for the Panthers? I need to get in on this pool...

All three weeks I won were Panther victories. Every week you pick who you think will win each game and then you add up the totals week by week.

I wasted my entire years betting allowance week one when we lost to the Bucs. Who would have thought right?

    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles. Then Big Al had 42 in 2013. Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.
