I chose one of my favorite locales in the city as the game thread photo. And I don’t care what you say about it. (By the way, I’ll be at Rossi’s tonight for the Detroit Lions v. New Orleans Saints game if you’re in Chicago and want to come by for a hello. I’ll be the one in a worn orange cap, drinking Old Style bottles, playing Warren Zevon tracks on the jukebox and screaming “Who Dat!”)
Other scoreboard watching to be done:
- It’d be nice to see Houston’s terrific rush attack destroy Atlanta’s rush defense (one of the worst in the league). I just don’t know that the Texans will be able to hide Yates for four quarters.
- It sucks, I know, but root for the Packers to put the Giants to sleep for two reasons: (1) it’ll knock another team out of the mix and (2) we need the Packers playing for something Week 17.
- Root for Tony Romo to throw the game away and lose to Arizona.
- I’m also going to start rooting against San Francisco every week. I want New Orleans to slide into the two slot, giving the Bears a trip to either San Fran or Dallas/NY for first round of playoffs (should they make it).
