    Last question for this year Ryan! Survivor pick… Chargers, Titans, Giants, and Redskins.. Where would you rank them? and why?

    And your reasons and analysis for picking the Giants over the Eagles with Vick back and Gmen playing like crap? and Panthers over an upstart Saints team? Thanks much! Thanks for all the great advice throughout the year!

    Lance – I like the Titans. Without Shorts I think the Jags just fall short on playmakers. Can’t really trust SD. G-Men are up and down. Dallas and Wash can go either way.

    It’s a gut thing with G-Men. I just have a weird feeling they will somehow find their way in. Watch Detroit top Chicago, GB and Wash knock off MN and Dal and suddenly GMen are in. Maybe it’s just my paranoia as a Pats fan. As for Carolina, I’m just buying into Cam.

    Lester, I am a big fan of you, I do agree with the Giants winning big tommorrow, I don’t see the Saints losing considering Carolina beat them in the begginning of the season and the saints play tough at home and I also think Drew Brees is going to light it up tomm for his fans for everything that his team has gone through and it’s his last game at home. As for the Chargers, they are playing against Pryor it will be his first NFL start and Norv Turners last game so I see them taking that one easily.

    A lot of these games can go either way. It’s like a preseason game almost. If I did bet, I wouldn’t bet this week.
