Week 14 - The End of the Moustache?

I realize Dave Wannstedts was coaching college football... but it was announced Dave Wannstedt had resigned after 6 years of typical Wannstedt football (not quite delivering on the promises that were made, but lots of awesome moustache jokes and fun for the fans).

It's strange, but what started out of hatred for the Moustache has transformed into love. I love the Moustache. It makes me laugh. But really, I laugh at Wannstedt because I think he's incompetent. I think Pitt made me really enjoy the Moustache's antics. I still will never forget how happy he was when Pitt shocked the world and beat West Virginia and prevented W. Va. from going to the National Championship game. I hope the Moustache finds a new gig... just not with one of the teams I'm rooting for!

On to the games.... there are lot of bad ones

Manwich Matchup of the Week --
New England @ Chicago- Normally, the bounce-back theory would choose New England. However, I have no respect for Chicago.
Pick: New England

Upset of the Week #1 and
Opening Round Playoff Game #14
Teams that have been eliminated: Cleveland, St. Louis, Oakland, Detroit, Buffalo, Kansas City, San Fran, Denver, Arizona, Carolina, Tennessee, Washington, Indy! (lost to Dallas)
Oak @ Jack- I can't believe these two overachievers get to play each other at this point! I'm going with Oakland... only because I respect them more than Jacksonville I think.
Pick: Oakland

Upset of the Week #2 -
Denver @ Arizona- Very slim pickings this week. I feel like these are two of the most dysfunctional teams from this year...
Pick: Arizona

Other games...
Indy @ Tenn - Pick: Indy
Cincy @ Pitt - Pick: pitt
Cleve @ Buff - Pick: Buff
Giants @ Minny- Pick: Giants
GB @ Detroit - Pick: GB
ATL @ CAR - Pick: ATL
Tampa @ Wash- Pick: Tampa
St. Louis @ New Orleans- Pick: New Orleans
Seattle @ SF- Pick: Seattle
Miami @ Jets- Pick: Jets
KC @ SD - Pick: SD (please start winning!)
Philly @ Dallas- Pick: Philly
Balt @ Houston- Pick: Baltimore

Last Week: 11-5
Season: 115-74
Manwich: 11-3 (Pitt beat Baltimore for revenge; the Pats beat the Jets for revenge! That's a double-manwich patty!)
Upset of the Week: 9-12 (Tampa fell short against ATL; Buffalo didn't even come close against Minnesota)

I'm taking JAX over OAK, CLE over BUF, MIN over NYG and the Cowbitches over PHI.

Not sure how Arizona/Denver is an "upset", unless the majority of America thinks that both crappy teams will somehow lose. But I'm taking Denver, so sure, call your Redbirds pick an upset.

I'm also bucking you with Jacksonville, Dallas, San Francisco, and Washington.

Oh, and you can blow your Bears-hatred out of your ass.

I too am going with the Clev. I'll also pick SF and Jack.

I am picking both denver and arizona to lose

I also have no idea why denver is favored over arizona. they are both awful!

I also just think the bears have been very lucky. I just would rather have the other NFC teams make it to the playoffs. Please don't hurt me.
