So on a car forum that I frequent, there is a general purpose NFL thread, where a bunch of fans are going back and forth and having a discussion. As can be guessed, the level of discourse isn't very high. It seems that most of these fans don't really know the game very well, they just know their team and thats about it. This one Baltimore fan is predicting a major BAL blowout next weekend, and everyone is taking him for a savant because he correctly predicted all four games this weekend. even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then I guess. As for me, sure the Pats might lost this game, but no way in heck is it a 25pt blowout by the Ravens. I'm predicting Pats 31-24. If the Pats lose, they lose in a close game by a FG or last minute TD. No real point to this thread, just how frustrating it is to try to have intelligent football talk with people that really don't know the game, but think they do (like some of the trolls around here ).
