EL PICKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! VEGAS EDITION - Vegas baby!

I wonder what it feels like to be inside Alexis Texas.

On to the picks.  Your welcome.

GGGGMMMMEEENNN -4 over BENGALS
Giants keep hearing all week that hear comes the November swoon.  Their record under Coughlin in November is below .500 but they are on the road and somehow I think they are treating this week like some sort of playoff game or statement.  Like that 49er thrashing a few weeks ago.

Titans +6 over MIAMI
Man the Titans ran into one last week huh.  Dolphins are playing well and are probably talking themselves into a playoff spot.  I don't think they can cover a TD this weekend.  Baby steps Dolphins.

Lions -2 over VIKINGS
If they had Harvin I would take the Vikes here.  He is such a game-changer for them.  Got a feeling the Lions reel off a few here then crash in December.  Just a hunch.  Cowboy style.

Buffalo +11 over PATS
I just think they'll backdoor cover here.  VEGAS ALERT - Take the OVER.  OVER.  OVER.  You are welcome.

BUCS -3 over San Diego
Norv.  Cross country trip.  1pm (10am) start.  Bucs got a horse in the backfield and Josh Freeman has been playing very well.  Over 2000 yards, 12 TD's - 5 INT's.

NEW ORLEANS +2.5 over Falcons
When was the last time the Saints were getting points in the Superdome.  You'd have to go back to 2008 for that.  I think the Falcons winning streak has been running on fumes.  Average margin of victory in past 5 games is 6 points.  Only the Philly game was a convincing win (13 points) but they suck ass.

Denver -4 over CAROLINA
They are rolling here.  Elway hit the lottery.  He paid alot for the ticket but it was worth it.  Paired with the John Fox defense this team could be going places.

BALTIMORE -7.5 over Raiders
Ravens are a different team at home.  Check the home/road splits.  Another west coast team playing at 1pm.  Why don't they fly in a few days earlier I don't get it.

Jets +6 over SEAHAWKS
You heard the man.  Jets are making the playoffs.  I think they unleash TEBOW this week and he'll keep it close.  Hawks win because in the end the Jets don't have the playmakers and Russ Wilson is a gem at home.

Dallas -1.5 over PHILLY
Still no Demarco Murray but Dallas is great in November and the Eagles are finished.  Not sure the Eagles owner will fire mid-season but Reid is toast.  He'll be the next coach in Cleveland.  WRITE IT DOWN.

St. Louis +11.5 over NINERS
Don't like this spread.  Think the Rams and Fisher will have something up the old sleeve.  Fisher has experience dealing with a juggernaut in his own division.  I think the team will be super prepared and actually give the fighting Harbaughs a scare.

DA BEARS -1 over Houston
Bum's son will take away Brandon Marshall you better believe it.  It's a Forte game because the Bears will take away Foster as good as he is.

STEELERS -12.5 over Cheifs
This line could be 30 and I'd take it.  Pittsburgh has it's mo back and are protecting Big Ben better than ever. 

Be safe guys have a good trip.  Call me!

I don't think Reid coaches the browns next year.

I bet there is a lot of room in Texas.

Thought for future summits. If the summit ends up being somewhere that 1 person doesn't have to travel at all, that person has to treat everyone to at least a decent dinner

El Padrino said...

no problem

El Padrino said...

although i have a feeling with all the baby stuff that this is the last summit

tem said...

negative. if keith can make it to 2 summits whilst having a kid then we all can.

"I don't give a (expletive) how it was interpreted," Bryant said. "It doesn't really matter to me. I'm too old to deal with that stuff. I really am. I've been (Brown's) biggest supporter. So, I'm really too old to be dealing with childish things."

Bryant admitted he felt anger and frustration with the Lakers off to a 1-4 start for the first time in his 17-year career, but that people shouldn't read too much into the viral video.

Next year summit in Scottsdale

El Padrino said...

it's like they bitch about it

then do nothing about it

tem said...

is a decent meal OG?

BLUE said...

I think they not trust the guys, the extra night on the road creates too much danger

El Padrino said...

i'd say no

El Padrino said...

dug a little deeper

Raiders are 0-7 on the Eastrern seaboard with a 1pm start.

I have a feeling Lane Kiffin is gonna get into some serious shit with this whole football deflating story

4 More Years!!! said...

NFW some 19 y/o ball boy is doing that on his own

tem said...

Lane Kiffin is teflon. None of this shit sticks to him.

Meiz said...

Holy shit, I just had a moment. I thought my flight got fucked up. MKE doesn't have it on their website as a departure.

El Padrino said...

why would deflated balls help

you can throw them further?

4 More Years!!! said...

man, mize is anxiety ridden

Meiz said...

Lane Kiffin's the best. He's a miracle that we should all appreciate.

4 More Years!!! said...

you can throw them further?


apparently their* easier to throw & catch

Meiz said...

"why would deflated balls help"

Easy to hold onto & catch.

Meiz said...

"man, mize is anxiety ridden"

Very. I've already taken 2 nervous shits within a 20 minute window.

4 More Years!!! said...

i just printed my boarding pass

tem said...

"Easy to hold onto & catch."


THAT.


just try it. it is an obvious difference when catching and holding.

i'm not a QB though, so i don't know if it is easier to throw.

4 More Years!!! said...

I'll ask our ball boy to deflate our rough touch footyballs

/LP

Meiz said...

"just try it. it is an obvious difference when catching and holding."

And it barely needs deflated to make a ya-HUGE difference.

tem said...

kickers always liked kicking old banged up balls that weren't really full of air too.

i have no idea what the science behind that is.

El Padrino said...

get that sports science douche to run through a deflated ball experiement

tem said...

the deflated ball gives and is easier to hold. science.

extreme example. pick up a squishy stress ball and then pick up a baseball. squishy stress ball is much easier to keep ahold of.

tem said...

"get that sports science douche to run through a deflated ball experiement"

this will probably happen within 4 weeks. he needs things to do.

Probably feels better off the foot than a hard ball that is fully inflated

STILL LAUGHING AT THE FAT DUDE ON TOP CHEF TRYING TO BUTCHER A DUCK WITH A PARING KNIFE

Meiz said...

"Probably feels better off the foot than a hard ball that is fully inflated"

Probably easier to draw & fade, too, since they compress more.

Tyler said...

This is all that is on sports radio in L.A. right now. And yeah, no way some student manager just did that without someone telling him to do it. This morning they listed all of the bushleague stuff Kiffin has done since he's been at USC and it's all just dumb stuff.

Meiz said...

The jersey switching was brilliant though

Tyler said...

Like he tells the media that he didn't vote USC #1 that week in the coaches poll and then then USA Today releases his vote and says that he did vote them #1. What is the point of that?

Meiz said...

I'm benching the shit out of Maclin this week.

Tyler said...

He's a giant 'bag.

this all day

Tyler said...

So on Wednesday, my realtor sends us a bunch of short-sales (because there's NOTHING right now) and there's one in an area that we really want and it's going for about $70k less than the house next door did a couple of months ago, so I tell him we want to see it, but he says he's busy. So we try and see it last night and the listing agent won't call him back and cmTyler checks and it's already pending.

Blue, I need to fly you out here to fire him.

tem said...

"Need 2. Right now I've got Lloyd/Washington"


Whoever you play the other 2 will do betters*.

Meiz said...

I gotta hopefully get some distilled water from the drug store tonight.

tem said...

searching for a house sucks.

4 More Years!!! said...

Whoever you play the other 2 will do betters

for sure

tem said...

then moving sucks worse

oh

you do that shit daily?

tem said...

"Iran said it took "decisive" action after a U.S. drone entered Iranian airspace in the Persian Gulf last week, a commander said.
.....The Pentagon said two Iranian jets fired on an unmanned U.S. Air Force drone last week. But the United States said the firing happened over international waters.....The drone was not hit, and it returned under its own power to its base, he said."


decisive action is firing at an unmanned drone and missing?

Jugdish said...

safe travels, guys. wish I was going too


^^^^^^^^

Tyler said...

"searching for a house sucks.

then moving sucks worse"

You forgot about escrow, that sucks just as bad.

4 More Years!!! said...

"you do that shit daily?"

For now, I do.

Meiz said...

And because our wifes* & parents let us out of the house

Meiz said...

That hurts, Kevin.

El Padrino said...

vegas is suite but you going does not leave me with a harsh acrid taste in my mouth

Meiz said...

"Is it good for you to do it that much? NS
My nose doc said to do that like once a week"

It probably isn't, but I'm going to cut back next week.

El Padrino said...

"And because our wifes* let us out of the house."

yeah i guess your wife is better then mine or circumstances are completely different

one or the other

tem said...

acrid is an A- word. good work.

4 More Years!!! said...

LP is so easy

tem said...

"yeah i guess your wife is better then mine or circumstances are completely different

one or the other"

it could be both.

i've never really met your wives though.

i said hi to cmk once, but that doesn't count really.

on FB both seem to be nice.

4 More Years!!! said...

Yeah, and she was kind of pissy at the time

Yeah, could be this. I forgot that the 2nd child is a game changer

El Padrino said...

disposable income is an oxymoron.

Phil's choppin' trees somewhere in the wilderness of Montana

El Padrino said...

smokin mad weed

4 More Years!!! said...

home time

Tyler said...

"jerry sloan"

Yeah, because he didn't basically quit because he's frustrated with the modern NBA athlete. Sloan's never coaching again.

I would be shocked if Phil comes back because after he left, Jim Buss was almost trying to eradicate his Laker existence.

I like Nate McMillian.

But seriously it's just gonna be Coach Kobe.

Meiz said...

"I like Nate McMillian."

NBA coaching carousel move. I hate how the league does that shit.

Meiz said...

NFL, too

Aitch said...

I'm here and in a room.

Aitch said...

"kickers always liked kicking old banged up balls that weren't really full of air too.

i have no idea what the science behind that is."

I would think it would give a spring like effect. More give on the contact surface and a little more push back against the foot. Just my theory.

tem said...

lots of articles saying Dantonio once he recovers from knee replacement surgery.

tem said...

"I'm here and in a room."

cool. did they make you swipe a card? i couldn't talk them out of that action.

tem said...

i hope Larry Bird takes the Lakers job.

the article from El Tardo would be legendary.

take a nap aitch

It was good, but yeah, too much. Definitely need to go lighter on the sauce

tem said...

Score 1 for aitch.

Jugdish said...

aitch, get an 18 pack of beer and sit in the lobby and drink it whilst you wait for everyone to arrive. Hotels like that.

El Padrino said...

in vegas they won't even do a double take

Tyler said...

DUDES:

I hate to do this, but I can't go. Just got the worst news possible about the pregnancy and my wife is really, really upset.

Literally just found out like 10 minutes ago.

Tyler said...

I was trying to work something out like I come back Sunday, but she is super upset right now.

Tyler said...

Tem, I will pay you for the hotel. Seriously, let me know how much it is and I'll get you the funds.

Jugdish said...

I hate to do this, but I can't go. Just got the worst news possible about the pregnancy and my wife is really, really upset.


sorry to hear that, man. thoughts and prayers to the both of you!

Tyler said...

Thanks Jug.

We were hoping it was something else but it ended up being a miscarriage.

El Padrino said...

sorry T, sorry man

El Padrino said...

"Phil Jackson just cancelled a speaking engagement where he was the keynote speaker for 3,000 people."

Aitch said...

Sorry Tyler. That sucks, man.

Tyler said...

Thanks EP.

She's physically fine, it's just emotionally she's a wreck. So leaving her right now is probably not the best idear.

Tyler said...

Thanks Aitch.

I was looking forward to this weekend, so sorry to miss it.

El Padrino said...

"She's physically fine, it's just emotionally she's a wreck. So leaving her right now is probably not the best idear."

good idea

Aitch said...

" I was looking forward to this weekend, so sorry to miss it."

Yea but you're doing the right thing, man.

Tyler said...

Thanks man. I'm actually more emotional about it than I thought I would be.

You guys have fun.

Aitch said...

T, just remember this is not an uncommon thing. It is scary and emotional and depressing as fuck, but it does happen. You guys will get through it.

4 More Years!!! said...

Man, sorry T

Jugdish said...

Yea but you're doing the right thing, man.

Tyler said...

Yeah, I know, we're not the only people who have been through this. I think I'll be fine, but it's just hitting me pretty hard right now.

Thanks Keith.

Tyler said...

Yeah, she was telling me to go to Vegas on the phone, but then I talked with her on Google Chat and she's more upset than she let on. And her niece's 1-year birthday party is Sunday, so she wants me to go with her. I imagine she'll be very emotional for that.

tem said...

Definitely stay.....so sorry to hear about it. Cmtems sister had one last year, it was rough but they are having a kid this december, so its common.

Take some time and try again.

No worries on the hotel room.
