    I get the odd feeling that if the dolphins were chosen to play to patriots in the afcc next week, he'd pick them to win too. :D

    Now if only we can get every other media member to pick the chargers, the patriots will win by about 50 points.

    At least he's consistent.
    Staring into my crystal ball, Mike Ditka and Shannon Sharpe will pick the Chargers too.

    we already played them and embarrassed them.
    it won't even be a contest.

    saying 'this is a different team' won't change that. that's just the media trying to keep interest. truth is, chargers are same bunch of clueless losers and are coached by an idiot, and now their three biggest 'stars' are all banged up.

    please.

    on to the superbowl after another beating.

    bring on lord favre.

    I heard him say the chargers should win the game, and then really put the man-love on cromartie. If you're sure, I must have misheard then. My bad.

    I was impressed by the tenacity they showed today, winning with backups and all. But the fundamental question is who will outscore the Patriots? The Jags were the second best offense in the second half of the season, and though Garrard played well overall on Saturday night, it was not enough. And this is taking into account that the best receiver in the league had one catch for 14 yards, so you can't tell me that taking him out of the equation is how you beat the Pats (newsflash to the rest of the NFL: Brady won three superbowls before he got here).

    I don't see Brady forcing passes that aren't there, so as long as everyone else keeps their hands on the ball it should negate the chargers biggest strength which is creating turnovers.

    And I say bring on Eli. Two weeks of Favre worship will be too much for any sane individual.

    Hoge may have confused you a bit but he picked the Pats.

    Does it really matter if he did or didn't pick the Pats to win?Its basically irrelevant at this point.I'd love for every single ESPN analyst to pick against us.

    Regardless, I stand by my statement - Hoge is a closet Homo. I will not waffle my position like he does.

    Shannon Sharpe and Marino already said there is no way the Chargers win (kiss of death from Shannon! haha!). Shannon said "I see a 41 point game". These guys are terrible at making predictions. They all unanimously picked the Colts over the Chargers big on the pre-game show and looked like fools.

    When the True/False question was asked will Cromartie get an interception on Manning they all said "false" as well. Why does anyone even ask their opinion?

    Everybody? Last I checked, the line for Sunday's game is Pats by 15.5. Maybe it's a little high, maybe it's not, but even many of the Chargers fans will admit that we're a long shot to win next week.

    I think it is common knowledge that the Chargers are the biggest bunch of classless whiners that ever played the game, so anybody could have posted it.

    Hoge is taking the Bolts? I must have missed that. I think that's pretty bold for a mediot.

    What's the line right now? 14.5? What was the SB 70 Jets v. Colts line? Like 16? What's the largest line ever in the post season?

    If the Pats go on to win the SB, in the postgame show on NFLN he'll be picking the Pats to lose the 2008 season opener against whoever they play :)

    Change the thread title to 'Merrill Hoge continues to successfully troll oblivious Patsfans.com posters.'

    Because that's all he's trying to do is drum up attention and hey, everyone who makes a big deal about his stupid predictions is playing right into it, congrats.

    Or maybe Hoge's on the Patriots payroll to help develop the "no respect" world in which you live...then again, it sounds like Hoge's taking the Patriots but still it somehow gets twisted as a "he's disrespecting us" whine.
