    So I listen to NFL radio on my way to PT in the mornings. Last week Ross Tucker picked the eagles to beat the Falcons cuz he didn't think the Falcons were good enough to be 7-0.

    But this week he picks the Falcons over the cowboys?


    Well, I agree (sort of) with Tucker. I don't think the Falcons are good enough to be an 8-0 team, and I don't think the cowboys are bad enough to be 3-5.



    Cowboys 34
    Falcons 24

    Good enough to be 8-0
    Or bad enoug to be 3-5 has less than 0 impact on what will happen tomorrow night

    When you make a post that makes zero sense. Expect someone to let you know

    Except, his post does make sense. He is making a prediction based on a feeling. I wouldn't bet on his method of predicting the outcome of this game, but I get what he is trying to say, therefore it does make sense. What doesn't make sense is the description, "less than 0 impact!"

    I'll post the sarcasm sign for you next time.

    Having a feeling and making sense are two different things..I have a feeling on the game too.. My feelings also will not impact the outcome

    Are you sure your feelings won't have less than zero impact? If so, both of your feelings could actually offset the outcome of the game.

    Even if we feel the same way? How would that work?

    what Ross Tucker says should not matter one iota to anybody.

    Glad you asked.

    Less than zero, is negative. When you multiply two negatives, you get a positive. If both of your "feelings," regardless of what they are, have less than zero impact, they are both negative, meaning when multiplied that should yield positive results.

    I can understand this this....and here is a stat for you I seen on ESPN a few days ago. Maybe it's been posted elsewhere, but i been too busy this past week, and haven't been on here as much.

    3 times the Cowboys played teams that were 7-0 or better. # times the cowboys gave those teams their 1st loss of the season.
    most recently the Saints and the colts, and also the 1991 Redskins.

    all 3 of those teams that lost to Dallas, went on to win the SB that year....so if the Cowboys win....will the Falcons win the SB this year....

    The trend suggest yes. The reality suggest no.

    Well... crap.

    Though if we don't win the SB this year I wouldn't be upset if the falcons do.

    This has merit, but not for the reason I believe most think it does.

    BTW. I'd feel a little better about playing a 9-0 Atlanta team. Undefeated team's prospects for a loss seem to increase with each win. 7-0 is no big deal. You get to 9-0 and it suddenly becomes real.......the talk and pressure of an undefeated season becomes a factor.

    But forget 91, since most of these players were in diapers. But Romo and a few other key players were part of the 2006 and 2009 games. We might just have the right combo of confidence we can do this and desperation that we need to.
