First off I need to know if T sent Clifford some roses. Keeping the baseball theme for a minute Free Agency officially begins today and it should be a slobberknocker. Expect the millions to be flying around. Funny thing bout that, economy is in the tank and beisbol players are getting paid more than ever. Expect 180MM for Carsten Charles. Manny thing will be interesting. Boras is so good at what he does it makes him a tremendous asshole. If he wrote a book I betcha it'd be a NY Times best seller week one. So lot's of baseball news going on today, let's beware, keep our eye on the prize and close some ass.
Games be good you.
I may be shammy'ing this a bit but that might be the 2nd or 3rd biggest win in Jet History. I mean to be up 24-6, they come back after you forget to come out of the locker room for the 3rd quarter, then to sustain that back breaking drive only to have Cassel come back to tie it, then win on the first possesion in OT...that was a damn good win and a helluva football game. Mayo is some linebacker. And it was nice to see Bruschi on the sideline for some defensive snaps. Your old and tired. Please die. Vrabel haolding call, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Fuck aitch.
Where I Stand:
Cash : $1157.50
OK State -17 over Colorado (Straight Bet $50)
I'm a man! I'm 40. Been dying to work that into a post. Feels good.
Jax +3 over Titans (Striaght Bet $150)
3rd time is a charm. I've said for two weeks now that the Titans will go down. And two weeks in a row they've found a way to win. The Green Bay game was closer but this week they play road favorites again. In Jacksonville, it seems like Jack Del Rio has had enough of everyone's shit and is really pissed off. He looks like a guy who, if he throws some shit around the office, it looks quite frightening. And mind you this a rarity for me, the ATS numbers involved in this match-up are heavily slanted towards Tennessee.
Bengals +9 over Philly (Straight Bet $150)
Big number for the Iggles who tend to play down to thier competition (cept week one). Bengals have improved, have been in a number of close games and almost beat the defending champs in thier own house. I know Palmer is out but Fitzpatrick is not Brad Johnson terrible so they got that going for them.
San Diego +5.5 over Pittsburgh (Straight Bet : Shits and Giggles, $25)
It's obvious SD won't be threatened or pushed to win that division. Unless the Broncos can wake up and play defense. That aside I feel like everytime I watch this team or highlights that they "Moss" it a couple of plays against the likes of Kansas City or Oakland. In this business we say all the time "they play down to thier competition", hell I even said that in an earlier nugget and the flip side of that is "they get up for big games". This is a huge game for San Diego. I believe it will be the 4:15 game nationally on CBS. Pittsburgh is banged up pretty bad, the Injury list they just put out is longer than Rev's saturday afternoon King Kullen run and SD have heard all year thus far what a "failure" they been so far. As if the season is only 9 weeks old. This is a show me game. SD shows up.
St Loo/San Fran over 44. Going against the trends again. No idea why. Just a hunch.
This, this is for Matilda.
