Margaret Talks Cowboys, Makes Week 16 Picks

The upcoming weekend will either be merry or maylay for some NFL teams.
One East Texan will be tuned in. Our favorite NFL analyst, 92-year-old Margaret Wood.
She sat down with us to talk football, playoffs and of course the Cowboys.
"I thought it was terrible. I thought it was pathetic," Margaret said referring to Sunday's Cowboys matchup withWashington.
"They were lackadaisical," she said. "That was my opinion of it. They just didn't seem with it. They're not consistent. One game they're playing good, the next game they're way down."
Margaret said she saw a Dallas squad that did not resemble a playoff contender. So, her pick for Saturday's big game with Carolina was no shocker.
"Oh, definitely the Panthers," she said.
The Oakland versus Denver game is her lock-in pick. "Denver has a stronger team and it's in Denver. Home field always means a lot."
The upset of the week she believes will be in the Pittsburgh versus Cleveland game. Her pick, "the Browns."
Margaret feels the Seahawks-Colts game could be a Super Bowl preview.
"It's going to be a rough one," she said. "Of course I picked the Colts for sure."
On the subject of the Super Bowl, Margaret has restored faith in her beloved Patriots chances of "threepeating."
As much as she thinks the Colts will roll, her heart is with Tom Brady and his crew if they should meet in the AFC Championship again.
"If it does come to the Patriots and the Colts, I still think it would be the Patriots over the Colts. I pick experience over youth."
