In the divisional world, li-ving in a divisional world DIVISIONAL, AL

New Orleans -3.5 over SAN FRAN

San Fran beat two good teams this year. The Giants, early in the year and the Steelers. They split with Arizona and beat the RAMS and Seahawks twice. Out of conference wins include the Browns and Redskins. They have had a great year. No doubt the defense is scary. No doubt. But, they haven't seen a team as good as New Orleans yet. So there is an unknown here. The QB they are facing is on a different planet and can even make excellent defenses look silly. They've been on cruise control since mid December. There only hope is a slow track. And the weather looks to be crisp and sunny so that probably won't be the case. Defense wins championships. I mean did you see the Alabama game Monday night. But this is a different league right now, complimentary defenses that compliment high porwered offenses have been winning in January. We'll put this model to the test at 4:30 Saturday.
Saints 27, Niners 17

Denver +14 over NEW ENGLAND
I mean you have to be just insane not to take the points here. INSANE. Have you been alive the past 10 weeks of the NFL? 14 points to the man who has sparked a god damn national controversy. I mean Merrill Hodge can't even sleep at night he's gonna end up like Percy the Green Mile Gaurd staring out the window of a mental ward in a straight jacket wearing fuzz slippers. I get it. Brady has weapons. They can score. Blah blah. The Patriots defense blows. Belichick won't be a dumbass and leave the secondary naked back there but the Broncos will still gain a bunch of yards. The game comes down to red zone scoring. Pats will score, no doubt because that's what they do, you can't cover Gronkowski/Hernandez AND Welker all at once. Will the Broncos score enough to win?
Pats 31, Broncos 29

Houston +7.5 over Baltimore
Fucking Flacco is perplexed he doesn't get talked about in the same breath as Rodgers or Brees. What a clueless fuck. Anyway Houston has a top ranked D so they hang around. Baltimore can play some D too. Suggs went to Ball So Hard University. That shit cray.
Baltimore 17, Houston 13

You know the deal, especially after they won. No chance I'm handicapping the Giant game. Handicap your face. But it already is. SNAP.

Tell you what though, if i'm right. Giants have no shot at beating the Saints in that fucking dome. None. Lock it up.

it's funny hear. all week the local radio guys have been all cautiously optimistic...riding the tebow wave.

now they're getting put on the spot by the boston media in interviews broadcast here, and they're all like...wellll, we don't really think Denver will win.

it's pretty funny

I think Denver has no shot

Blue said...

new england has seen this offense, they won't be surprised by anything, they know where the weaknesses in the defense are.

if the broncos had Dawkins back, i'd give them a better shot.

yes, but the rams already have a QB, and will have the 2nd pick in the draft...which could be more picks

plus they have a decent enough defense.


i'd still have taken the Miami job though

Yes, a QB who's 8-18 and can't stay on the field.

El Padrino said...

yeah im not sold st louis is the better team here down the road despite the #2 pick and cap space

Muschamped said...

At least Miami knows they have a bad QB and can address it. StL thinks they have someone to build around. The only thing they should build around Bradtard is a hospital

Muschamped said...

And I can get money taken out pre-tax for a dependent day care account. But if I do that, can I still claim day care on our taxes?

Muschamped said...

This is where the resident accounting nerds jump in

Blue said...

you can claim daycare on your taxes above and beyond the amount you have reserved for dependent care flex.

Muschamped said...

you can claim daycare on your taxes above and beyond the amount you have reserved for dependent care flex.


Perfect. Thank you

Blue said...

I don't remember off hand though, I think day care you have to be over a certain % of AGI. So your dependant care expenses above the flex, has to be enough to hit that limit.

Muschamped said...

OIC. So no flex acct for me

Why no flex? You want pre tax dollars paying for daycare, right?

tem said...

Post tax dollars spent are deductible but subject to having spend over a percent of AGI .if you use pre tax dollars that's not an issue....I think. Kinda drunk.

tem said...

I don't think the flex spending plan will hurt your refund, it should help. If you have an expense that you know you have to pay for, like daycare, I think its is always better use pretax money to pay for that expense.

Prob with a flex plan is that you set aside X dollars and if you don't use it you lose it. So you gotta make sure you use it.

tem said...

Comptroller blue might know some stuff about this

Pass the Lysol said...

"I dunno. I like getting money back at the end of the year as opposed to saving a little more during the year"


but you're not taxed on the flex plan dollars, right? You really should use that all up first each year then (and if it's like med flex plans, you gotta use it or lose it each year).

By using money outside of your flex for daycare expenses, you just end up paying additional money in taxes: You can calculate about how much, it will roughly be your marginal tax rate X day care dollars expended - savings from using as deduction: that's what you would be paying extra to have the gov hold your money until the end of the year (you can also include the lost time value of money to that equation, but I doubt it's all that significant).

Even without knowing any of the three variables above, hard to see how that would be a wise move.


I also don't know the particulars of the daycare deduction, but it must cap out, and if it caps like the out of pocket medical expenses deduction, it's basically worthless.

Pass the Lysol said...

I didn't like that our office switched to an HSA at first and required employee contributions every pay period, but actually paying med expenses from untaxed income really is saving me a lot of money in the long run.


of course our deductible jumping 14X what it had been before still sucks, a LOT.

Lil Brother said...

Same here

Muschamped said...

I understand all that. But I'm not a "set aside money" person. So it's not like I'm missing out on interest, because the money would just go to bills right away. That's why I was saying I like getting a bigger return at the end of the year as opposed to getting taxed less during the year

Muschamped said...

Prob with a flex plan is that you set aside X dollars and if you don't use it you lose it. So you gotta make sure you use it.


This is a flex plan. It caps at $5250 a year. Our daycare expenses will be between $8-10K. The money has to be used by Jan 31st for the previous year, I think

Muschamped said...

So using it won't be a problem

Trying to find a hotel for Vegas in April for csil's bday. Was looking at sweets* because there will be 6 of us. They are a lot more than I thought they'd be

Blue said...

I think the flex might still be the smarter move. Because you'll get the full pretax benefit for the first $5k

If you dont you'll more than likely only get about 3k worth of benefit as a deduction (I think that's the max). I don't know enough though because I don't have that credit because of my stupid stay at home wife

Blue said...

We should get a sweet for summit 3

I too like getting the IRS bonus at the end of the year

"i still think paying with anything with pretax dollars is better than paying with post tax dollars."

agreed, while the government is shady, typically the flex stuff usually benefits the taxpayer as long as you use it all
