A big congrats to JamesMorse for winning this week by picking correctly on the winner (Broncos, which makes me sick), and three of the four categories correctly. JamesMorse now joins AllisonSmith atop the leaderboard with one victory for the season. Nice work James, you're the Saints Nation Guru this week.
This week the Saints take on the Eagles on Monday Night. Here's how it works: I give you four questions and a bonus score prediction for tie breaking purposes. Use the comments section to give me yours predictions on upcoming game, and each week I will crown a "Saints Nation Guru". With that, below are the questions for the Saints @ Eagles. Good luck!
1. How many times will the Saints sack Michael Vick?
2. Which player will lead the Saints in receptions?
3. How many touchdown passes Drew Brees throw?
4. How many turnovers will Michael Vick have?
5. Give me your final score prediction.
@JamesMorse with Brees we always have a chance against anyone
The answers were:
7 Sacks (Fair to say, NOBODY was even close)
Gramham lead in receptions (with 8, Colston is 2nd with 4)
2 Touchdowns for Brees
1 Turnover by Vick, 2 turnovers in total, but the 2nd was a Fumble by Celek.Score
Final score: 13-28
Congrats Andrew! It appears you indeed do have some knowledge of football! You had 2 right, though your score was way off. No let me correct that. It was WAY off! But that only counts as a tiebreaker. So I didn't look towards that.
Btw, tell me one thing: How does that tiebreaker count? If you predict a W and it is a W that is first. But what is both predict a W? Will you see who was closest to the actual score (point difference?)
@MarijnPessers yeah exactly. The final score only factors in to break a tie. In that case, if the tied people both picked the correct winner, then whoever has the closest score (both margin and point total) wins.
1. Saints sack Vick just 1 time
2. Jimmy Graham
5. Eagles 38 Saints 24. Hope I'm wrong!
1: 3 times
2: Marques Colston
3: 3 Touchdowns
4: 2 Turnovers (both fumbles btw, Saints will not intercept him)
5: Eagles 31 - Saints 35
@MarijnPessers Vick won't be running for his life that much to fumble twice - you're to generous about our D..
@SaintsNation @JamesMorse Even in the offseason Drew is hanging out with Elmo: http://1079ishot.com/new-orleans-saints-qb-drew-brees-kicks-it-with-elmo-on-sesame-street-video/
