Favre's pick was inexcuseable. Fucking stupid, to be exact. And, it cost me my Vikings 5:1 SB bet.
Still did OK as I took Indy (-8) and Vikes (+4). For whatever reason tho, at the last second, the O/U (54.5) looked juicy in the NO/Minn game so I tossed a little on that too. Still came out ahead, just not as much as I woulda been.
Still deciding about the big game. Indy (+5) seems a little high. NO and Brees might get overwhelmed though whereas #18 has been in more big games than pretty much the entire Saints roster. Have to see how it goes this week.
Back to Favre's INT in regulation for a second, what killed me about the end of that series was the...*surprise*...playcalling. Right after they got on the NO side of the field they went too conservative too soon. Taylor has that nice run for a first to the 33 yard line. At that point, you're still staring at a 50 yarder. Way too tough (even in a dome) FTW. Ya gotta get another 7 to 10 yards to make it a much more reasonable attempt, right? So, what does Minny call? Run, run, pass...INT. Why not go PAP on 1st for a quick strike? Run a FB dive or somethin' on 2nd to setup a nice straight on FG attempt from 43 yards? Didn't make any sense to me at all.
Then, factor in Brett's bonehead throw when he coulda easily run for a nice chunk of yardage in the flat. He probably gets to the 30 without anyone getting within 5 yards of him...easily.
Might be one of the biggest, if not THEE biggest fuckup plays in postseason history.
