Upon Reading the game treads on BBV the last two weeks and seeing the misery that the Giants performance on the field has caused my football fan brothers to the north, I decided to come up with a little betting game that can distract you when the Giants' performance is not up to par or to keep you interested while they are blowing out one of the NFL's weak sisters.
How it works is I will set an over/under number for how many times a certain subject matter or phrase is posted in the game thread and you guys can either pick against me or just count them up to see how close I come to the real number.
Over/Unders for the Washington game thread 1/2/2011
Posts with "Fire Tom Coughlin" in it
This one really depends on how the team is doing. I'm going to say it will be a close game with the Giants winning in the end
The Pick 54
Posts that complain about Tuck or Osi being in coverage
Depends on how badly the player is burnt or how anemic the pass rush is during these plays.
The Pick 19
Posts that tell us it's not Eli's Fault
Since Eli averages a little over two turnovers a game and he has a nice group of people here that have his back, I'll go a little high.
The Pick 32
Posts that have the phrases "Fire Quinn" or "Our special teams suck" in them
Now we're getting into some of the high number picks.
The Pick 140
Posts that complain about holding calls that the refs miss
This one is huge
The Pick 296
Posts where one Giants fan calls another a troll for making a negative comment
This one is getting more and more frequent
The Pick 23
Posts that begin "With all the talent on this team" but end with a negative comment
Starting to see this one here almost as often as on the Cowboys site.
The Pick 48
Good Luck picking. If you enjoyed this game and the Giants somehow make it into the playoffs I would be happy to post some Over/Unders for that game.
