NFL Week 4- Princess Takes the Giants

Princess the Camel is on an impressive roll prognosticating NFL winners and losers this young season. After predicting the Oakland Raiders to upset the heavily favored NY Jets last Sunday, Princess has start off the season with 3 winners.

This week Princess has decided that the NY Giants are about ready to start on a roll of their own, she has chosen them to beat the Arizona Cardinals out in Pheonix this Sunday.

“I think the Giants finally got things straightened out John. The defense got it done last week and Eli only threw the balls to his own teammates, not the other team. So he might be on a roll.” Princess said after revealing her choice to her handler John.

Being a Giants fan myself, I love Princess pick this week. I hope her 3 week winning streak as well as the Giants 2 game winning streak is extend Sunday.
The Giants certainly put a lot of critics to rest last week with their win over the Philadelphia Eagles it would be a real shame if they lost this game to the Cardinals and let all the naysayers and doubters return.

>Remembering John Adler

>I admit I’m a little late in wishing my condolences to the family of the Congressman John Adler who past away yesterday. There has been many fine pieces written about Adler since his passing and I don’t really have much to add.

I met him once by chance, a couple of years ago when he was running for congress. I was spending the a spectacular day down in South Jersey with the family when I ran into him pressing palms and working the crowd at the Chatsworth Cranberry Festival. I didn’t know him from Adam and told him I was Middletown. That didn’t seem to matter to him, he was polite, cordial and a pleasure to speak to. Only afterwards when I got home and googled his name, did I realize he was a rather prominent and highly thought of member of the NJ State Senate.
When he went on to win his congressional seat later that November, I thought it was pretty cool bumping into him the way I had because I seriously didn’t think he could win his district. The seat was held by a string of Republicans for as long as anyone could remember and was considered by many, to be a very close toss-up between him and his opponent.
Sadly he lost his bid for reelection last year to former Philadelphia Eagle football player John Runyan in a another very close race. It’s even sadder to know that he lost his life a few short months later.

NFL Championship Sunday Predictions

Here are my predictions for the NFL’s NFC and AFC Championship games, the winners of which will meet in the Super Bowl on February 1st.

Eagles vs. Cardinals

As stated last week after the game against the Giants, I feel that the Eagles will move onto the Super Bowl with a 24 – 19 victory over the Cardinals in Arizona. However, if Kurt Warner has great game and does not turn the ball over, I can see the results being reversed.

Steelers vs. Ravens

Jersey Joe Flacco’s story book year is over after this game. The Steelers have beaten the Ravens handliy twice already this season and I see no reason to think otherwise here. Big Ben will do just enough to NOT lose the game and let the Pittsburgh defense control the game.

Steelers 23 Ravens 13

It should be an all Pennsylvania Super Bowl this year.
