NFL Week 9 Giants Vs. Patriots – Princess Picks’em

Last week as most of you all know, Princess the prognosticating Camel of Lacy Township’s Popcorn Park Zoo, picked the Giants to beat the hapless and winless Miami Dolphins. Thanks to the Giants playing down to their competion, as was the worry last week, the Giants nearly lost the game and continued Princess 3 game losing streak. Thankfully for Princess fans (and the Giants), her losing streak was broken and she returned to her winning ways and raised her pick record to 5-3 for the season.

This week the game that Princess will be covering is the Giants Vs. Patriots. It’s a tough game to pick, the Giants are entering the game as 9 point underdogs but that doesn’t deter Princess, who went with her heart instead of her head and picked the Giants to upset the Patriots this week.

After fretting over her choice this week and questioning her decision to take the Giants over the Pats, Princess’s handler John tried to console her doubts about the pick, “Hey girl, it’s okay to pick with your heart instead of your head and who knows, anything can happen. It’s not like they haven’t done it…”

Will the Giants comeout on top this week and extend both their and Princess’s winning streak or will the Patriots prevail, disappointing both Giants and Princess fans? We’ll find out Sunday afteroon.

Week 8 NFL Pick: Princess Says Take Giants Over the Dolphins

Princess the Camel has had a pretty rough time of it the past few weeks. After starting the NFL season of with a perfect 4-0 record of predicting NFL game winner, she has fallen on some tough times. After choosing the San Diego Chargers to beat the NY Jets last week, Princess has found herself in the mist of a 3 game losing streak and a record after 7 weeks of picking games of 4-3.

Princess’s fortunes should change this week with her no-brains pick of the NY Giants over the Miami Dolphins, I mean if the Giants can’t win this game they have no right fielding a team for the rest of the year. Although as Princess states, “… on paper this appears to be an easy one, but you never know. The Giants are known for playing down to the competition…”

That’s a point that should be heeded for sure, the Giants do have a history of playing down to their competition but this week the Giants will show up.

It just may not be pretty.

Football Friday: Princess Picks The Jets Over The Dolphins

It’s week 5 in the NFL and Princess the Camel is on a 3 game win streak with her picks, her record stands at 3-1 so far this season.
Last week Princess picked the Saints to beat of the Jets.
This week Princess reverses course and has predicted that rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez will turn it around by defeating the Miami Dolphins, in Miami, Monday night.
When Princess was asked why she had a change of heart after last weeks dismal game by the Jets and their quarterback Mark Sanchez she had this to say:

“…He’s a rookie, John, and entitled to some miscues, I think he’ll do much better this week. I don’t think he’s going to have to do a whole lot anyway. That Jet defense will stop Miami’s “Wildcat offense” in it’s tracks. The Jets will turn those Wildcats into pussycats…”

Well here’s hoping that Princess continues her winning ways and the Jets come out of Monday night’s game winners.
