Happy Thanksgiving from Saints Nation! I hope you guys have a fun day filled with family, food and watching football. Three NFL games today on the docket so I know what I'll be doing. The winner of last week's Saints Nation Guru is Ellmanov, who picked 3 correct answers out of 4. Ellmanov is now at the top of the standings with AllisonSmith, SaintsNation (me), JamesMorse and swebbmann. Nice job!
This week we're making predictions for the 49ers game. As usual, the person that has the most correct pick wins and gets his profile picture pimped on a blog post... and the overall season winner at the end of the year will get a special prize. I'm thinking a $50 gift card to the Saints' online store. Does that excite everyone? My incentive to win is that I get to keep $50, haha! Make your picks for the 49ers game based on the questions below by putting your answers in the comment section. Good luck!
1. Which player will register the Saints' first sack (you can also pick no one)?
2. How many times will the 49ers sack Drew Brees?
3. Who of the Saints' four backs will lead the Saints in touches (Sproles, Ingram, Ivory and PT)?
4. Which player will score the Saints' first touchdown?
BONUS FOR TIEBREAKER: How many receiving yards will Vernon Davis have on the Saints this time?
...I should've won. Seriously! Lol! How the fack' could the coaches game plan NOT have included Pierre Thomas?! Fack' me sideways while running backwards!!!
So we do not all lose, just because the other contestents for the 6th spot also lost. Next week Falcons is a must win imo though. The answers: 1: nobody, which nobody had correct coincidetally. 2: 5... Ugh. Nobody had that either. 3: Ingram with 10, elinanov andme had that. 4: Dave Thomas.. no correct answers either. ... So it has cone to this... thefirst time the bonus question decides who will be the guru for this week.... Well I had Davis in my fantasy team. I knew he was crap. 34 is closest to 0 since Elimanov had 90. So Saints loose, and I join every other guy at the #1 spot with 1 weekly guru title.
Wow! I'm with the best! It seems like here in Russia we know some football too! ;)
1. Cam Jordan
4. Lance Moore
Bonus: 90 yrds
...B.t.w., I always make sure not to look @ other member's answers before I post mine; honest. So, MarijnPessers, it really IS just a coincidence that I picked Vernon Davis to have a hundred more receiving yards. Lol!
@JamesMorse I had Davis in my fantasy team. He sucks to have there. He does either go over 100 or he is a non factor. I think this is really something the 49ers do. Use Davis, then let him blcok a couple of games, then throw to him more then there are chinese people. So Since Saints expect him to play a lot since he burned them last time... I bet they will use him as a blocker most of the times.
Also,, I do not look at others before posting either.
