NFL open thread.

I’m just chilling with Michaelyn today watching football.

I pick the Pats to beat Baltimore by 3.  Mostly I just can’t stand Ray Lewis and I’m being optimistic.

I also pick the 49ers to beat the Falcons.  Falcons just don’t have the staying power (and, frankly, shouldn’t even be in this game), and San Francisco is hot.

Talk about it, all you heathens!

    Sorry the Pats gotta go down today. End of the line. Mostly I just can’t stand living in Boston at a time like this more than you can’t stand Ray Lewis. If they win today, they lose in 2 weeks and I don’t feel like dealing with the chaos even though it’s fun when everyone’s heart breaks again and again. Last year was awesome but I don’t have a strong feeling about any team, since I didn’t follow the season and the Giants are out. I didn’t pick one winner last weekend. :(

    If I had to say, being a lazy non-fanatic, a bird vs. bird Super Bowl would be cool, and then everyone can eat wings and think about that.

    Ilive about 1/2 and hour from the razer and its windy as hell here today. Its going to be tough to through the ball more than 10 or 20 yards in the air. Baltimore scores most of its points by long passes so there going to have some trouble today. Pats by 10.

    Frisco is really good. If they can stay away from turnovers they’ll probably win.

    It looked like the Falcons were going to run away with the game after the first quarter. The 49ers couldn’t do anything and couldn’t stop anything. They pulled it together pretty well, though.

    Niners Superbowl, baby! He are halfway to a Harbowl!
    Now go Ravens! I am so sick of Brady and Belichick.

    Am I imagining things or have I seen more than one player praying during the National Anthem? That’s just tacky.
