El Padrino's Weekly Picks, 50% of the time I'm right every time

Disappointing 7-7 last week, not what you guys expect out of me.  Overall 13-17 but I will do better still getting my bearings adjusted.

St. Louis +7 over DA BEARS
Jay Cutler has been sacked more than 6 times in a game 5 times since being traded for.  They've never really addressed the offensive line and I cannot imagine why that is.  Gregg Williams son is on this Fisher staff and I am certain they will kick up a defensive game plan that will center around pressure.  I see the Rams hanging around but ultimately lose.  Taking the TD.

BROWNS +3 over Bills
Haven't really figured out a few teams yet.  Both of these teams are two of them.  The Bills could be one of those classic home/road splits teams this betting season while the Browns cannot be trusted to show up every week.  Trent Richardson looked very good, ran with authority and blocked well when he needed to.  Weeden played much better.  Fitzpatrick and the Bills on the road  have been 1-6-1 ATS so I'm going to take the home dog here.

Tampa +7 over DALLAS
Vegas will figure out shortly that this Buccaneers team will cover TD spreads.  Keep em coming Vegas.  Schiano is like Tony Soprano right now to his crew.  They will run through a wall for this guy.  And it looks like the old QB coach for the Giants is having some early success as offensive coordinator there.  Home opener for the boys.  Good test for the young bucs.

Lions -3.5 over TITANS
Tennessee looking like they might have the #1 pick in next April's draft.  They look pretty awful in all 3 phases.  And CJK2 looks done which I cannot even believe.  It's either that or his offensive line is seriously fucking damaged.  Barry Sanders ran behind terrible o-lines for years though so maybe he is done.  Or just no interested.  I don't know.  I'm not a pshychiatrist.

COLTS -3 over Jax
Give me the Colts at home against division foes all day.  Luck is undefeated at home you guys.  Media talk.
AJA Luck was better than Gabbert last year while in Stanford.  Speaking of Stanford this David Shaw can coach.

Jets -3 over MIAMI
Rex Ryan is a complete buffoon but god damn he can coach him some defense.  Going to be a long day for the rookie.  I don't even think they should play Revis, they don't even need him.  The shittiest receiving corp in the NFL.  Cromo and the Boise St. kid can cover them just fine.  You don't want to risk Revis getting another concussion at this point because his next one requires him to be out a month I think.

Niners -7 over VIKES
I tried to think of a number I wouldn't take the Niners with and I couldn't come up with one that I felt comfortable with.  I am deathly afraid of this team.  I cringe a bit when they go for a hit, it's like I feel it or something.

Cheifs +9 over SAINTS
I think the Saints will win but not sure they will win easily.  They've been quite a mess the past few games and I thought at the least the defense would be improved but that hasn't clicked yet.  Spag's '07 Giants d-squad gave up a ton of points in the first three games also then leveled off and starting shutting niggas down so maybe he needs a few weeks of live action to work with.

SKINS -3.5 over Bengals
Still don't know what to make of the Bengals or RGIII.  Still a very conservative game plan from the Shanny's and I'm not 100% sure the Bengals will suck this year.  I think they will just not 100% sure just yet.  Either way for this one I gotta ride the home opener for Bob Griffin.

ARIZONA +4 over Philly
I don't get it either but I need to ride it.  Eagles have been pretty lucky to escape their first two games with a win.  Whatever going on in the desert is either an early season fluke or the real thing.  Even if it's an early season fluke the season is still early enough to take some home dog points.

CHARGERS +3 over Falcons
Thought the Falcons played pretty shitty Monday night despite getting the win.  Chargers so far have avoided the mistakes they've made almost every year out of the gate.  They are running the ball pretty well too, even with no names.  I feel like it will collapse at some point but I'm not seeing it yet.  If the Falcons played a complete game like they did in week one I'd probably be on them for this one.

Houston -2 over DENVER
Remember when Peyton was coming off that knee injury or surgery a few years ago and the Colts stumbled a bit out of the gate.  And he struggled, up until about week 6?  Wanna say they went like 10-6 that year but started like 2-3 or something like that.  Completely different injury but similar type circumstances.  And yes he's lost zip and floats TD's now instead of spiraling them.  But I don't buy in to the fact that he is done, as in not going to improve.  I think he'll be fine.  I think he'll own the second half of this year and be the story of the NFL again.  For now though him and his team will lose to the better teams.  I know Manning is like 16-2 against the Texans but that was with the Colts.  This is a different team, year, game.  Texans are arguably the top team in the AFC.  In the discussion for top three at the very least. 

Steelers -4 over OAKLAND
Whenever these two teams play I think of the 70's even though I wasn't around then it just reminds me of that era of football.  Noll.  Davis.  Franco.  Stabler.  Now since the Raiders have been pretty much been a non-factor in the AFC since the Gruden Super Bowl year it doesn't remind me of anything quite that special.  Looks like the Raiders will suck pretty hard this year, again, despite having a damn good running back.

RAVENS -3 over New England
Pats have always had trouble with this team.  Brady in paticular.  Baltimore wants this game pretty badly maybe it will give them some type of closure from the AFC championship game.  For the life of me I can't figure out why Ray Rice didn't get more touches in that Philly game.  I have a feeling he'll have a big time game Sunday night. 

SEATTLE +3.5 over Green Bay
I ain't fucking with Seattle at home on Monday night.  Not me.  Not this guy.  Remember the Hasselback playoff game vs. Green Bay when he said after winning the toss..... We want the ball and we will score.  That was funny.  Anyway Seattle is 5-0 in their last 5 home Monday Nighters.  I wonder why.

Mize said...

I hate the Bengals this year because just when I feel like trusting them, they're going to put it in my butt.

Stranger danger.

Jugdish said...

took the Bengals last week, but trusted the browns losing more than the Bengals winning

El Padrino said...

"I hate the Bengals this year because just when I feel like trusting them, they're going to put it in my butt."

pretty spot on

El Padrino said...

i like how the whole nfl network panel picked Carolina last night

Mize said...

I hope the breer's go after Dempster in the offseason.

Yo
Dempster
Marco The Strikeout God
Teh Fiers
Narv Dog/Peralta/Rogers/Thornburg

I like that rotation.

Mize said...

Mize said...

"is this real? i almost congratulated el pad on having very few errors."


Yes.

Mize said...

I didn't do any punctuation or grammar.

Mize said...

"zone read run my left nut"


Tuck was hip to that game. Mama didn't raise no fool.

tem said...

zone read worked 3 times. after that a good nfl defense will figure it out.

tem said...

why did the next QB go in? was cam hurt or benched?

Mize said...

I started Batmaning at halftime.

Mize said...

You missed pshychiatrist

tem said...

"pshychiatrist"

Mize said...

"You missed pshychiatrist"

paris hilton said nothing wrong

so retarded

El Padrino said...

not like i care if she fell off a cliff but just sayin

Keef said...

Asked if a share of the blame falls on him, he said: "I wouldn't sit here and say I'm to blame. I wouldn't think so, but I'm not the guy to sit here and be the guy that points fingers and things like that. It's just a situation where I'm going to be only as good as my line's going to be. So we've got to work together and get better together."


CJ.01K is grate. I'm not gonna point fingers, but my line needs to get better. Awesome

Keef said...

paris hilton said nothing wrong

Mize said...

"CJ.01K is grate. I'm not gonna point fingers, but my line needs to get better. Awesome"

One of my favorites. "Now, I'm not sayin'... But I'm just sayin'"

Mize said...

"im gonna corn a brisket one day"

Yuck

Mize said...

I think office chick acknowledged my fatness today. She brought in a tray of fudge this morning and comes in by me with it & says "You're not a health nut, have some fudge".


Sadderday
:(((((

Keef said...


"You're not a health nut, have some fudge".




oooof

Mize said...

I don't feel good about it. I ate that fuckin' fudge though. Shit was delicious.

El Padrino said...

fudgepacker

kod said...

Ryan Matthews


just in time to pull both fantasy squads out of an 0-2 hole


or so I hope; at least Gints D came through for me and Newton didn't exactly light it up

kod said...

fudge is awful; hate the texture

*cue easy joke here


Keef said...

I will be rooting against Ryan Matthews this weekend

El Padrino said...

El Padrino said...

eva longoria ass is like whoa

I miss Him said...

yeah, that pic is nice

El Padrino said...

now im in the mood for mexican

Mize said...

Kod's still alive, hey?

tem said...

position changes don't work online. i'll have to do them at home.

Keef said...

I turnt* 2 of my 6'2-6'3 ath-a-letes into CBs.

Keef said...

I'mma start a lot of frosh this season

tem said...

actually with some dicking around and if i do it enough they work.

tem said...

nope, athaletes don't work.

i'll do it at home.

tem said...

i don't foresee a NC in my future this year. my qb is not good enough.

tem said...

keith and meiz and blue i think had better classes than me too. i have a bunch of 3 and 4 star guys, no 5 stars.

El Padrino said...

romney released his 2011 taxes to the public

paid about 14% on income

Keef said...

who cares

El Padrino said...

LMFAO is breaking up

El Padrino said...

"who cares"

a shitton of people

Keef said...

I guess my statement should of* been why does anyone care

El Padrino said...

oh that's easy

gives dems a reason to yell he pays such a low rate compared to middle class citizens

the whole theme that mitt is out of touch with true americans

El Padrino said...

ceelo being the guy for nfl networks broadcast of thursday night football is strange and i think it sucks

Keef said...

I want tOSU to play either Boise or wava this season. Can you make that happen, mize?

El Padrino said...

was that a ghost? the fuck

tem said...

meiz can make anything happen

Keef said...

People I work with at HD say that there are ghosts in the store. When people work overnight there, they say that they'll hear forklifts driving around when noone is on them, and they'll hear the key machine running when noone is in that dept.

I miss Him said...

"I want tOSU to play either Boise or wava this season. Can you make that happen, mize?"

I think we should all have to play each other in the non-conference games

Mize said...

"I want tOSU to play either Boise or wava this season. Can you make that happen, mize?"

Sure. I think you might be able to do that yourself before the season.

El Padrino said...

they must be sleepy

Mize said...

"I think we should all have to play each other in the non-conference games"


Kev & I are in the same conference.

kod said...

Kod's still alive, hey?



yeah, hanging in there; just been completely buried under an avalanche of work








kod said...

"the whole theme that mitt is out of touch with true americans"



this has been my hands-down favorite election cycle of all time, not only for the RNC missing what should have been a complete slam dunk, but also watching how ridiculously out of touch Mitt is.


In many ways, it's the complete opposite of 2004....much better to be on this side of things. I just get to sit back and enjoy the trainwreck that is Mitt Romney






Keef said...

suite, political banter

s

kod said...

nothing to banter, dummy


just enjoying the show

Keef said...

dummy

tem said...

if we all play each other in non conference games the season will take months.

timing up head to head match ups is a bitch.

tem said...

the show is grate.

tem said...

fucking brick commercial still pisses me off.

Keef said...

if we all play each other in non conference games the season will take months.

timing up head to head match ups is a bitch.



If we just play one person in a non conference game, it will hold it up maybe a couple days at the most. Don't be negatem

tem said...

i'm total pro give free money to welfare crackheads now because of that commercial.

Keef said...

It can't be any slower than this fucking offseason stuff has been

tem said...

i'm ok playing one of you. but if i have to play all 3 it will make the league take a long time.

tem said...

offseason shit is the worse. i told you that earliers.

tem said...

offseason shit will be hilarity when one of us gets fired and has to find a new team to coach.

Keef said...

Probably noone will get fired

Keef said...

Unless LP joins.


0%

tem said...

eventually we all will get fired.

tem said...

i just signed a new contract for 3 years. if i don't win the title in that timeframe i will probably get fired.

the game is harsh.

Keef said...

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams because of an ankle injury, coach Lovie Smith said.



Walter Payton!

Keef said...

if i don't win the title in that timeframe i will probably get fired.



Stop it

tem said...

actually with you and meiz being in the same side of the big 10 one of you will get fired soon for not winning the big 10 title enough.

tem said...

on heisman level keeping your job is not easy.

Keef said...

are we on heisman level?

Keef said...

I thoat* it was all-american

tem said...

good question. i thought it was heisman.

if it is all-american then it will be easier to keep your job.

I miss Him said...

good thing we're playing varsity

Keef said...

I think it's higher than varsity. Varsity is fairly easy

El Padrino said...

"In addition to being a fifth-year N.F.L. player who left Dallas to join the Giants in March, he is involved in a project to develop a new social network (“It’s like Facebook but better”);"

oh facebook but better

fucking hilarious you are martellus

Mize said...

All American

I miss Him said...

"oh facebook but better"

so twitter

tem said...

it is higher than varsity. if it were varsity i would score at least 60 a game.

tem said...

so would you guys.

varsity is easy.

tem said...

lp would still lose though.

tem said...

"In addition to being a fifth-year N.F.L. player who left Dallas to join the Giants in March, he is involved in a project to develop a new social network (“It’s like Facebook but better”);"

sounds like step 1 to becoming the next broke former NFLer

Keef said...

lp would still lose though.


tem knows

I miss Him said...

yeah this position change shit isn't working.

plus it doesn't look like my recruits are on there

El Padrino said...

sounds like a pain in the ass

El Padrino said...

can you let the computer handle this shit

tem said...

no, it is highly specialized and only we can do it.

tem said...

you also have to do it from your house. doing it somewhere else is not possible.

El Padrino said...

yup pain in the ass

Mize said...

El Pad is a curmudgeon.

tem said...

no it is just specialized and localized. it is great stuff if you can get it.

tem said...

smooth as silk and best stuff ever, just specialized and localized. i doubt you can relate.

Keef said...

everything is a pain in the ass to LP

El Padrino said...

you guys are the ones bitching about it

Keef said...

who is bitching?

I miss Him said...

it's impossible for anyone else to do it outside of their house

even if I took my xbox to my friends house, it wouldn't let me.

I miss Him said...

or say, to Foley, Alabama

El Padrino said...

looks like bitching to me:

"yeah this position change shit isn't working.

plus it doesn't look like my recruits are on there

offseason shit is the worse. i told you that earliers.

timing up head to head match ups is a bitch."

I miss Him said...

that's templaining

tem said...

its not bitching, it is facts.

Keef said...

LP, what is a bigger pain in the ass? NCAA 2013 or your kids?

El Padrino said...

your face

Keef said...

wrong. That was not one of the options

El Padrino said...

write in

El Padrino said...

HCSILEP is a pain in the ass

El Padrino said...

she got a new apartment so we all have to stop what we are doing to assist her in fixing it up/painting it and so on

if you say no a tantrum follows because you know, the world revolves around her

tem said...

it can't revolve around her and csilok at the same time can it?

tem said...

they must fight to the death to determine who the world revolves around.

kod said...

"Schlangen, 54, said he was prepared for the decision to go either way “just because the system doesn’t let the jury realize they have the power to disregard a stupid law.”"


wow, you don't hear US justice system secret #1 get reported very often


secret #2 is too horrifying to even mention, but some wacko will eventually figure it out, and it will be bad

Mize said...

"she got a new apartment so we all have to stop what we are doing to assist her in fixing it up/painting it and so on"


FUCK NO

I did position changes.

Mize said...

I'm rooting for the goddamn Cubs and the Reds. Ugh.

Keef said...

Breer's are just going to brake* your ♥

Mize said...

I'm not all that invested in it. My expectations are low. Just hoping for the best.

Mize said...

I'm done with position chages, but my green light didn't go on. Again.

tem said...

I don't think it goes on for the commish all the time. It expects you to know if you're done.

Mize said...

It needs to know I'm a damn rookie

Mize said...

It goes on during the season though

tem said...

It is wired times it doesn't go on.

tem said...

Espn just scrolled that blaine gabbert (buttocks) will play Sunday.

I miss Him said...

I'm done with position changes, I said that on the wrong post before

Mize said...

Do you guys get that Windows Media screen every time you tun on your xbox or is it just me?

Mize said...

Feel free to torch my d-backs this season. Yuck.

Mize said...

Feel free to check out your player progressions. The Luckeyes are scary good.

Other than the 1st quarter against Jax, the Vikes have looked pretty decent at home.

Kyle Rudolph doing a nice Chris Carter impression today, one of the better TE receptions you'll see

kod said...

fox keeps saying the 49rs have 3 timeouts, even though they took one early in the 3rd quarter. Even the announcers are noting it wrong.

I hope this isn't like the Seahawks game earlier this year and frisco gets 4 TOs

kod said...

nope, the refs had it right at least

kod said...

HA! Now frisco tried to challenge the amount of timeouts they have


they got fooled by fox, keep track of your own TOs, Harb

kod said...

now the refs gave them 4 TOs after all, also allowed them a challege they shouldn't have been allowed to make (which they won)



damn

kod said...

INT


won't matter anyway

kod said...

announcers

"and now san fransisco is being allowed a second challenge they don't have, may as well since you're giving them 4 timeouts"
