Week 17- Giants v. Cowboys for Princess

Last week’s game between the NY Giants and the NY Jets was a must win for both teams in order to keep their playoff hopes alive (more so for the Giants). In all reality, the game was sloppily played by both but should have been won by the Jets if they would have stuck by their game plan to run the ball more and not pass it over 60 times. In the end however, a win is a win and Princess the Camel picked the winner when the Giants shutdown the Jets last Saturday and silencing the mouth of Head Coach Rex Ryan.

“…Jets coach Ryan said he didn’t come to New York to be anybody’s little brother and he was going to prove that last Saturday. I guess that didn’t work out for him!…” commented Princess

This week it all comes down to the last game of the season for both the Giants and the Dallas Cowboys, the winner of this game takes the NFC East Division crown and marches(more likes limps) into the playoffs, while the loser goes home and watches the playoffs from their easy chairs.

From her sanctuary at Popcorn Park Zoo, in Lacy Township NJ, Princess the Camel has made her final NFL game prediction of the regular season and has chosen the Giants to beat the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night at MetLife Stadium.

“…The Giants and Cowboys, you never know with both of them, good one week bad another, with the Giants it’s bad one quarter and good the next…if the Giants can play a whole game of defense like they did in the 2nd half last week they should be okay.”, Princess said about the game.

I happen to agree but it won’t be easy. It’s tough to beat an NFL team twice in one season, especially a division rival that you played only a couple of weeks earlier.
Like any other game, this one will come down to who makes the fewest mistakes and which QB, Manning or Romo, rallies their team more successfully.

Princess Picks Week 14 – Giants v. Cowboys

Week 14 of the NFL season is upon us and Princess the Camel of Lacy Township’s Popcorn Park Zoo, is coming off a big win.

Last week she picked the NY Jets to beat the Washington Redskins down at FedEx Field. That pick was in jeopardy going to the 4th quarter, the Jets were down 19-13 to the Skin when all of a sudden, the Redskins imploded by giving up 21 unanswered points in the span of 7 minutes.


For this week’s pick, Princess is taking the NY Giants(6-6) over the Dallas Cowboys (7-5), in Dallas on Sunday night.

So what did Princess have to say about her pick?

“… the Cowboys haven’t won a game in December since I don’t know when and then take into account the Giants 2nd half of the season collapses the last couple of years. Well, one of them is going to win by accident.”, “…But they did play a good game last week even though they lost. Eli will out gun Romo.”

I agree with Princess on this weeks pick, this should be a good game for the Giants. They are the better team and need to beat the Cowboys to keep their playoff hopes alive.
A win Sunday night will give the Giants a slight lead over the Cowboys in the NFC East, but to ensure a playoff spot they will have to win the rest of their games and beat the Cowboys a second time on New Years Day to guarantee it. It wont be easy but I think they will be up to the challenge.
Let’s hope that Princess continues her winning ways this week.

Princess the Camel Picks The Giants Over the Eagles This Weekend


This is welcomed news if you are a Giants fan, the prognosticating camel of Popcorn Park Zoo, Princess, has chosen the NY Giants over the Philadelphia Eagle in this weekends NFL playoff matchup of  NFC East Division rivals according to the Asbury Park Press.  

Princess’s record in predicting the out come of NFL games this year stands at 15-3.  John Bergmann, the general manager of the Popcorn Park Refuge has been quoted as saying “This is Princess’ third year of picking teams. She’s always had an edge, but this year is unbelievable, no human can predict, no computer can calculate winners with such accuracy.”
As a big Giants fan myself, I love this prediction and will take good news anywhere I can get it. If memory serves me correctly, I believe that Princess also picked the Giants over the Patriots in the Superbowl last year.  
To be fair to Eagle fans, I must mention that Princess split this years games between the two teams this year, her pick of the Giants over the Eagle in week 14 was wrong, the Eagles won that game 20-14. So I suppose the Eagles still have a small chance at victory.
