El Picks

Randomness

Soup is stupid.

There are about 26 professions/things/jobs (I can list them good idea for a future post) that I know I can do and do well. That leaves about what 40,000 that I can't do? Let's discuss.

Why don't they just call the Redskins the Pigskins so everyone can keep saying "The Skins".


BILLS +7.5 over Bengals
How the fuck am I supposed to pick this game. Fucking Thad Lewis. All I know is the Bengals have sucked on the road and I'm just going with points here. Reminds me of baseball games where a kid is called up from the minors and throws up zeros because the batters need more than 7.2 innings to figure that sumbitch out. Hopefully Thad keeps us close. Who the fuck names their kid Thad anyway.

Lions -2.5 over BROWNS
Weeden is awful. If Calvin Johnson isn't playing I want my money back.

Raiders +9 over CHEIFS
In Pryor we trust. Seems like Arrowhead is buying a few points for the Chiefs here. Raiders are coming off a pretty impressive win given the fact that the Chargers are better than alot of people thought initially. Pryor clearly was the right choise* over Flynn.

VIKES -2.5 over Carolina
Remember when I said how could Houston go so long without re-stocking their WR's like why didn't they draft a guy that could have added another dimension to thier offense, someone who could be paired with Andre Johnson? That comment applies here except times it by 10 since instead of Andre Johnson they had a seemingly never aging Steve Angry Elf Smith. Cam completing a Marck Sanchez like 57% of his passes, drops to 48% on third down. Yikes.

Steelers +2 over JETS
Did any of us ever think we'd be alive to see the JETS laying points when they faced the Steelers? Here's to thinking Dicky LeBeau has some shit up his sleeve for Geno.

Philly -1 over TAMPA
I can't touch Tampa no matter who they play with all that turmoil. They have termites.

Green Bay -2 over BALTIMORE
Rodgers has all his weapons healthy. He will be deadly this week.

HOUSTON -7.5 over Rams
Schaub nonsense aside the Texans defense has shown flashes of brillance and I think they turn a gem here. Not hard to do vs. literally the worse offensive coordinator I've ever seen.

DENVER -27.5 over Jax
Do I have to break this one down? Jacksonville's only hope is inclement weather or a Manning assisination.

Titans +13.5 over SEAHAWKS
That's a big number vs. a respectable defense. That Seattle O has not been impressive so far. Other than Lynch. they've shown us nothing.

Saints +2 over NEW ENGLAND
Brady just doesn't have the weapons to survive a shoot out. Unless the wiazrd can work his magic on the defensive side I can see the Saints pulling away late in this one. Also. Jimmy Graham.

SAN FRAN -11 over Zona
Think SF is in the midst of a nice little 6-1 stretch here. They got that swagger back.

Skins +5.5 over DALLAS
Washington always plays NFC east foes tight. I'll take the points. Feels like a FG with time expiring game. This whole REDSKINS name change thing is quite retarded. Can we just change it to Indians?

Colts -1 over CHARGERS
Colts are the better.

some really wierd lines this week:

Raiders +9 over CHEIFS

this should be raiders + 4.5

Philly -1 over TAMPA

this should be Philly - 6.5. philly is going to destroy Tampa.

Titans +13.5 over SEAHAWKS

this should be Titans +5.5. why is seattle giving that many?

Saints +2 over NEW ENGLAND

sorry H, this one should be Saints -2.5. Saints should be favored here.

Who Dey said...

no apology needed. sproles and brees are gonna go buck wild on Sunday.

tem said...

maybe it will snow or something and slow them down.

BLUE said...

"this should be Titans +5.5. why is seattle giving that many? "

because Seattle is at home and that's worth at least 8pts.

tem said...

"because Seattle is at home and that's worth at least 8pts."

maybe against jacksonville it is.

BLUE said...

against fitzmagic?

tem said...

titans D is solid enough.

what would the spread be at TN? would SEA be -5.5 at TN? I doubt.

BLUE said...

I think they'd be -5.5 in TN

BLUE said...

they'd be -5.5 on a neutral field

they'd be -2.5 in TN

BLUE said...

I think Vegas got that one right, and who are we to judge vegas

tem said...

directv subcribers?

tem said...

we get gems, so that enables us to judge vegas?

Who Dey said...

I think the Raiders line is ok. The Chiefs D has been stout.

BLUE said...

chefs are awful

tem said...

you think wrong.

Who Dey said...

"chefs are awful"

Raiders are worst*

Who Dey said...

"you think wrong."

I think you're face is wrong.

tem said...

thank you.

tem said...

that means it is right because you think wrong.

tem said...

also wrong you're, but as. will be by shortly to point that out.

fucking wifes

El Padrino said...

it's wives

El Padrino said...

you people have horrible grammar

El Padrino said...

we've known the Panthers have needed to upgrade the receiving corps. Smith is tough as nails, but he's 34 and likely stretched as a starting wideout. He wasn't supposed to be the no. 1 guy by a significant margin at this point. The receivers around him have been players who didn't make it off special teams elsewhere in the league, guys like Legedu Naanee, Louis Murphy, and Ted Ginn. LaFell has settled in as the starter next to Ginn, but he's a raw player who has failed to exhibit many signs of refinement, even after starting 24 games as a pro.



fucking Simmons still reading our shit

Keef said...

Simmons didn't write that

El Padrino said...

he approved

Spaceman Spiff said...

"AP's 2 year old son in critical condition after his baby mama's boyfriend beat him... awful"

a "secret" child he had with some chick in south dakota, kid is not expected to live. he also attacked the chick with a metal bar

the guy that did it is allegedly a scumbag that has beaten women and chidren multiple times. he was adopted into a rich family and victims always get paid off, not this time, plus gonna be a murder charge.

supposedly he is out on 750000 bond

Keef said...

the guy that did it is allegedly a scumbag




Allegedly

Spaceman Spiff said...

you're right, my bad

the guy that allegedly did it is allegedly a scumbag

tem said...

is AP playing on Sunday?

tem said...

insensitive question, but i don't care, we are in the trust tree here.

Keef said...

Is it bad that as I read this shit, all I can think of is this better not fuck up my fantasy matchup. #fantasyreasons

Keef said...

Kind of a double dragon

tem said...

kind of indeed

Spaceman Spiff said...

she still makes pick em picks from beyond the grave.

or whoever was pretending to be her in the 1st place makes them.

we were all teo'ed by the beth fake person.

Keef said...

Props to AP, though. Getting a chick knocked up in South Dakota is smart. Noone ever checks up on SD.

El Padrino said...

secret child

is hilarity

how many secret kids shawn kemp got

Spaceman Spiff said...

even more insensitive question incoming









is AP free of child support payments for this kid now

El Padrino said...

if he dies yes

Keef said...

If he dies, he dies

Keef said...

Adrian Peterson just addressed the media ... and thanked everyone for their support in the wake of the terrible tragedy involving his 2-year-old son.
Adrian told reporters he's dealing with the situation privately ... but insisted he WILL be playing with the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Keef said...

Save $25 for me

tem said...

"Props to AP, though. Getting a chick knocked up in South Dakota is smart. Noone ever checks up on SD."

1) i didn't know black people lived in south dakota.

2) that kid was guaranteed to be the best high school football player ever in south dakota.

tem said...

"putting 1000 on vikes"

what just happened?

china men will own Brooklyn soon

$80 worth of inhalers have been delivered to me today.

$80. 3 inhalers. Health insurance is such a scam.

"had to fire someone today.... not fun, but necessary. sonofabitch was stealing"

"How does one steal at your office?"


we have field crews and work trucks. this person took a company gas card out of one of the trucks and spent $400 in a 3 week period. I got the video of him pumping gas in his own car once a saw the after hours purchases on our gas bill. the guy is a dumb ass

Keef said...

Asthma is a scam

BLUE said...

you know what's a scam, nut allergies.

this shit didn't exist when I was a kid, how come everything has to be all "nut free" now

BLUE said...

i'm going to start calling Katie Holmes, kate

she's not young and cute enough anymore to be a Katie.

Keef said...

Do you talk to her a lot

BLUE said...

yeah, not as much as before Tomkat but still some

Keef said...

It happens. People grow apart

BLUE said...

haven't seen suri in a minute

Spaceman Spiff said...

"putting 1000 on vikes"

I know it was his blood, but don't think he knew the kid at all

Spaceman Spiff said...

supposedly just found out about the kid "recently"

Spaceman Spiff said...

kid is dead

BLUE said...

I saw AP in the Houston airport once, chick he was with was smoking hot

Spaceman Spiff said...

was it gina gibiatti

Spaceman Spiff said...

watched that episode at work today and when the AD part came on, was a little weird after seeing the news

tem said...

Undercover boss was kind of cool but why are all the employees they are meeting telling the new trainee all this personal stuff within hours of meeting the undercover boss? The show seemed to be about as staged as Friends was.... you know 100%.

tem said...

It's like yeah that's how you work the cash register now lets talk about the time my mom got shot in a drive by and I used coke for years but now I am doing better and working at the animal shelter but some dog bit my miniscus and I need knee surgery I can't afford. Lets learn how to mop now.

The Meiz said...

I watched that. The show has definitely changed, and seriously, they need to change the gimmick.

tem said...

Watched the donatos one tonight. They gave the employees a bumch of money because life is hard. Everyone she met but 1 guy had a huge sad story behind their life that they told this stranger within 30 minutes of meeting them.

The Meiz said...

It's a generation of sharers. If they're comfortable with it, I don't mind.

The Meiz said...

BUT, they can't have the "life is hard, give me something" attitude.

Black lady at work is like that. I try to help her with her asthma management, and she sees it as me attacking her. She illegally obtains medications because she doesn't use it properly and doesn't give a shit. No priorities.

tem said...

It's too staged. Nobody tells a stranger this stuff within hours of meeting

tem said...

in other news someone just offered me:


alton jeffrey
cj spiller
fred jackson

for

doug martin
jermichael finley



then they retracted the offer 40 minutes later.

tem said...

martin and finley are on my team right now.

The Meiz said...

Moving the Muscle Hamster might not be a bad idea though.

The Meiz said...

Here's a trade that happened in my league yesterday.

Jordy Nelson
Demaryius Thomas

for

Julian Edelman
James Jones
Calvin Johnson

tem said...

i wanted to accept it, but when i did espn said he had pulled the offer and it wasn't valid anymore.

tem said...

i didn't like that jeffrey was in the trade since he just played thursday but whatever. i'm high on jackson for this season going forward. have been since week 2.

tem said...

is megatron hurt more than i know? not sure you need to go 3 for 2 with megatron on the 3 side....

tem said...

james jones is coming on strong too right?

seems like the 2 best guys might be coming from one side there.

tem said...

i think i'll set the trade up again but do the shit most people do in my league and make it totally ridiculous.


like i'll put d. jackson in instead of jeffrey and replace martin with chris johnson.

The Meiz said...

"is megatron hurt more than i know? not sure you need to go 3 for 2 with megatron on the 3 side...."


Guy trading Calvin is last year's champ & wants to be rid of having to worry about him. He only has 1 win, but his team doesn't suck.

The Meiz said...

My philosophy is if somebody is dumb enough t make a shitty trade, that's their fault. It only requires 4 votes to veto a trade.

tem said...

i'd only veto it if i thought there was collusion. like last place team stacking the first place guy.

i wouldn't veto if one guy was just a moron.

tem said...

if there is a moron in your league and you don't take advantage of him before someone else does then that's your fault.

tem said...

but if i thought they were stacking a team and going to split the winnings then i'd veto.

tem said...

i don't like how most of the non Chase cars in NASCAR stop trying the last 10 races. what the fuck is the point of having them out there if they don't try?

The Meiz said...

"if there is a moron in your league and you don't take advantage of him before someone else does then that's your fault."

We have a couple morons. Two of them are cousins. 1 is another guy's brother, the other is other guy's cousin. They're both way younger, and basically get swindled into trades. I don't have a problem with it yet.

Who Dey said...

"if there is a moron in your league and you don't take advantage of him before someone else does then that's your fault."

Listen, here's the thing. If you can't spot the sucker in the first half hour at the table, then you are the sucker.

Who Dey said...

"i don't like how most of the non Chase cars in NASCAR stop trying the last 10 races."

not remotely true.

"what the fuck is the point of having them out there if they don't try?"

Prize money still gets paid out the same for each race whether they're in the chase. Also, some drivers are trying to hold on to their jobs or put themselves in position for a better one next season.

tem said...

Do you watch the races? Why are Chase guys taking 70% of the top ten when during the season those guys would be under 50%? It's because anytime a non chase guy gets near a chase guy he lets the chase guy go because he is terrified of wrecking him.

Who Dey said...

They give them a wider berth when they're getting lapped, sure. but you see non-chase guys in the top 10. There's also a reason why the chase drivers are in that position, because they have been consistently good all year.

tem said...

They give them a wide berth even when racing for position.
