  • NFL Pick'em with a Twist

    Just cause I'm bored and interested to see how this turns out I'm going to make picks this week based on who would win in a fight 1v1 between the team's names/mascots/basically what they represent.

    For example OSU Buckeyes vs LSU Tigers
    A Buckeye is a big tree
    A Tiger is a big cat that hurts

    My logic is I don't know how a big cat is going to knock down and defeat a tree I think a tree might have a better chance of falling on a tiger first, therefore OSU wins the National Title.

    Anyway here are my week 14 picks usuing this logic

    Chicago Bears (5-7) at Washington Redskins (5-7) - Skins
    Carolina Panthers (5-7) at Jacksonville Jaguars (8-4) - Panther
    Dallas Cowboys (11-1) at Detroit Lions (6-6) - Cowboys
    Miami Dolphins (0-12) at Buffalo Bills (6-6) - Bills
    New York Giants (8-4) at Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) - Giants
    Oakland Raiders (4-8) at Green Bay Packers (11-1) - Raiders
    Pittsburgh Steelers (9-3) at New England Patriots (11-0) - Patriots
    San Diego Chargers (7-5) at Tennessee Titans (7-5) - Chargers
    St. Louis Rams (3-9) at Cincinnati Bengals (4-8) - Bengals
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-4) at Houston Texans (5-7) - Buccaneers
    Arizona Cardinals (6-6) at Seattle Seahawks (8-4) - Seahawks
    Minnesota Vikings (6-6) at San Francisco 49ers (3-9) - Vikings
    Cleveland Browns (7-5) at New York Jets (3-9) - Jets
    Kansas City Chiefs (4-8) at Denver Broncos (5-7) - Chiefs
    Indianapolis Colts (10-2) at Baltimore Ravens (4-7) - Colts
    New Orleans Saints (5-7) at Atlanta Falcons (3-9) - Falcons

    -Redskin would kill the Bear with arrows before the Bear gets to him
    -Panthers are generally a little bigger than Jaguars both vicious
    -Cowboy shots the Lion easy accomplishment
    -Depends where the fight takes place in the water(Miami) a dolphin beats a Bill, but on land(Buffalo) a Bill easily wins
    -Giant catches an Eagle and crushes it in his hands
    -Not really suck what a Packer is, my guess is a person who packs food or items (like a meat packer). A Raider in that case would destroy a packer
    -Patriot shoots a steel mill worker
    -Titans would be hard to beat but the Greek Gods beat them before with Zeus' Lightning Bolts, Chargers win
    -A Bengal would kill a ram
    -When I think Texan I think normal person in Texas, a buccaneer is a pirate and would slit a texan's throat if ever given the opportunity
    -Cards are wimpy birds a Hawk could kill one if it wanted to
    -A viking would kill a goldminner who in my mind only has a pick ax as a weapon
    -What the f is a Brown? I'm thinking Mr. Hankey vs a Jet. A Jets burns mr hankey to death
    -Indian kills a wild horse
    -Horse vs Bird horse wins
    -This one was tough. I perceive a Saint like Mother Theresa, or another matyr as not doing much fighting and I think a Falcon could peck one into submittion if provoked unless some holy divinty is used. Doubt it though

    This is for fun and I'm curious how these picks will turn out by the end of the week. I could see me getting more than some experts just like when you go to the track and there is always women who know nothing about racing and just pick based on the horses name they like, and somehow win more than you, even though you know more about horse racing. Well at least I hope that's how its gonna work.

    If I go 12 for 16 or better I think I deserve mention in Walter's week 14 wrap-up section on the site.

    FYI, a Buckeye is a nut and it does come from a buckeye tree. There for the Buckeye's are know as the nut part and not the tree part, so sadly the tiger I think would eat the buckeye and win. Unless it was a possioned and then it would kill the tiger and the buckeyes win (ya ya), LOL.

    Good job that was fun.

      LOL nice.

      I think the rule goes

      Human beats Animal.
      Nature beats Human. (i.e. Hurricanes in college)
      Technology beats Nature (i.e. Jets)
      Supernatural beats Technology (i.e. Giants, Titans)
      Animal beats Supernatural (animal eats remains of giants, titans once they are dead)

        NFL Network had David Koechner on for their celebrity picks one time and he did the same thing.

        He said the Dolphins would win in the water and when Rich Eisen tried to correct him saying the game is played on land, Koechner stated he didn't think that was right.

        On his last pick he took the Colts and when Eisen said "Let me guess... a Colt would stomp on a Ram (or whoever they played that week" Koechner quickly responded "Uhh no Rich, actually I've been very impressed with Peyton Manning's ability to throw off play action this year. Not to mention the defense has taken their game to a new level... ect."

        It was damn funny haha.

          Using Walter's logic it would go something like:

          Chicago Bears (5-7) at Washington Redskins (5-7) - Skins
          Carolina Panthers (5-7) at Jacksonville Jaguars (8-4) - Pick'em
          Dallas Cowboys (11-1) at Detroit Lions (6-6) - Boys
          Miami Dolphins (0-12) at Buffalo Bills (6-6) - Pick'em
          New York Giants (8-4) at Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) - Eagles
          Oakland Raiders (4-8) at Green Bay Packers (11-1) - Pick'em
          Pittsburgh Steelers (9-3) at New England Patriots (11-0) - Pick'em
          San Diego Chargers (7-5) at Tennessee Titans (7-5) - Titans
          St. Louis Rams (3-9) at Cincinnati Bengals (4-8) - Pick'em
          Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-4) at Houston Texans (5-7) - Pick'em
          Arizona Cardinals (6-6) at Seattle Seahawks (8-4) - Pick'em
          Minnesota Vikings (6-6) at San Francisco 49ers (3-9) - Pick'em
          Cleveland Browns (7-5) at New York Jets (3-9) - Jets (still not sure what a brown is)
          Kansas City Chiefs (4-8) at Denver Broncos (5-7) - Chiefs
          Indianapolis Colts (10-2) at Baltimore Ravens (4-7) - Pick'em
          New Orleans Saints (5-7) at Atlanta Falcons (3-9) - Saints

          To many PKs for me.

            i'm pretty sure a typical texan would annihilate a pirate. Pirates typically have what, a sword, a knife, maybe a single shot pistol. A texan has anti aircraft rocket launchers, all sorts of automatics, and the impatience to use them right away. I can't help thinking of the pirate character from dodgebal.

              Well I think when you have animal vs. animal or human vs. human, you have to decide... Like a Viking would pwn a 49er by burning down his village and stealing his Snickers bars

                Well i would say a Bear should win in a fight against an India (Reskin) But it looks like the Indian had great bow skills and killed the Bear

                    the packer would probably be too drunk to fight against a raider anyway, and they would end up just going to the bars and getting sloshed together.
