Need help from realists.

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

[/quote]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

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...

[/quote]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?

I'm one of the biggest cynics on this board and I think the Panthers can win this game. Two teams both likely losing their head coaches, but going in different directions.

Panthers have a lot more younger, marginal players who are trying to add to their resumes for the next GM. Time to get some time on film.
