Picks


Oh my god. OH MY GOD!
MURPH!!!
If he homers off of Arrieta he will homer off of the three Cy Young candidates this year 

I'll never get the whole shift thing.  Why a pro hitter can't slap one the other way, in a crucial at bat, is mind bottling*.  Even when you get pitched inside it can be done.

Greinke was 19-0 in LA when given the lead.

Kershaw and Greinke 4 out of 5 games man.  And they got beat.  That's called beating the best.  It won't be tougher vs. Chicago.  The Cubs have a potent lineup, different challenge.  Rabid RABID crowd.  Will be a great series for America.  America wins.  MLB wins.  This is a lot of fun.

David Wright better get his shit together.

Keith Hernandez was giddy on the post-game show.  Wish those guys got to call these games (at least Darling does).  That must suck.  You are with the team all year long, calling all the games, sitting through the stinkers, the extra innings and then post-season comes and the corporations have their own guys.

Sorry Chicago, I know you haven't won shit in 100+ years but not on the Mets watch.   Thanks for shoving the Cardinals down a flight of stairs.

Obviously wasn't watching the Falcons game and didn't watch any highlights.  How did the Saints trash them?  Turnovers?  Those Thurs. night games are kooky.

Let's get to the picks I don't have all day. 

Blue tells me my record is good. I believe him.

JETS -7 over Skins
The defense should harass Cousins into turnovers.  Because I don't see them getting a change to establish the run on a rested defense who get back all-pro tackle Sheldon Richardson.  He who of fame from driving 120 mph with a kid in the car high as a kite.  But whatever you can do what you want when you can toss lineman around in football.

Az -3.5 over STEELERS
Just let Bell run the Wildcat half the game.  And Arians returns to the scene of the crime.

MIN -4 over Kc
KC was having a tough time winning games with Charles.  Now they have to try without him?  Andy Reid's play calling repertoire will be expanded this week.  Which is not a good thing for the Chiefs and Alex Smith.  Reid : "Let's throw a reverse bootleg with three down lineman as eligible receivers then reverse back and throw a screen to D'Anthony Thomas and have him lateral to Chandandrick West on three, ON THREE!"  Smith:  '**blank stare**

Bengals -3.5 over BUFFALO
I don't like the smell of EJ Manuel coming into this game when T-Mobile limps off halfway through the second quarter.  The Bills are awesome at home but only at full health.  Every important player is hurt.  The whole damn offense is questionable.  No thanks.  This would be ok if the Browns were in town not the Bengals and the red rifle.

DETROIT -3 over Bears
I like how Meiz projects on us that he is some sort of Lions insider.  You got a night job at the DFREEP?  Lions get off the schneid here.  This is their first break on the schedule.  If they go 0-16 I'll change my name to Andy and move to Wisconsin.

Broncos -4 over BROWNS
I thought the Raiders were winning that game.  Defense keeps bailing out Peyton and the offense.  What's going to happen when the weather starts to turn?  They need to get that running game going.  The Browns have been playing pretty well but not sure they have seen a defense this good since the Week 1 game vs. the Jets.  Even if Ware sits I like the Broncos.  Defense travels well.

JAX -1 over Texans
If Red Zone shows me one second of this game I'm going to be pissed.

Miami +2 over TITANS
Interim coaches, especially intimidating intense ones, always win the first game they coach.  Always.  Look it up.  Interim coaches are like 87-0 when coaching the first game.  The Dolphins will be flying all over the place and the oc will commit to the run early with Miller to set up the Tannyhill's.

Carolina +8 over SEAHAWKS
Pretty high line for a team with a lot of problems.  Leaky offensive line.  Cary Williams is getting abused opposite Sherman.  Jimmy Graham is an innocent bystander on offense.  Carolina has been a bit of a surprise although I'm not sure they really played a GOOD team yet.  So this is a nice test here on the road.  Off a bye, Cam got a chance to rest his body, I'll take him and 8 points to bank.

San Diego +11.5 over GREEN BAY
Good grief this is a high line.  I know I said last week I'll lay the points every week with the Packers but 11.5 to a pretty good team is a little much for me to risk. 

SF +1 over Ravens
This was a tough decision because both teams suck right now.  Question is who will suck worse on Sunday?  If  Flacco had any playmakers on offense I would take them but the pantry is bare.

PATS -10.5 over Colts
Well that line changed huh.  Was 8 yesterday.  Whatever like Blue said, which is an LP line, this line couldn't be high enough.  Remember this is Brady IDGAF campaign #2.  The last one was pretty damn impressive. 

Giants +4 over EAGLES
Could we talk about Eli's throw last week for a minute.  Not the boneheaded pick in the end zone wiseass.  The game winner.  That was a playoff throw.  His clutch throws never surprise me.  The dime to Manningham is probably the best throw I've ever seen and will ever see.  The Rothlisberger/Santonio Super Bowl throw is a close second.  Anyway who are the Eagles to give points?  Whether OBJ plays or not I think the Giants are in this one.

Hey JFreak. Good luck.

airshow today...Thunderbirds flying this afternoon.

F-18 flying out there now...its got to be pretty cool to do that for a living.

until it crashes

Keef said...

Beisbol needs to do like the NBA and have the playoff teams seeded by record, regardless of if you won your division or not.

Blue said...

beat kershaw and greinke each once, but in those games, Dodgers scored 1 run and 2 runs...so yeah, the mets pitching staff held their own.

The one game the dodgers lost and scored 7 runs, was the one those guys didn't start. Maybe more strategic to stagger them so they're going against the Mets #2 & #3 guys, but whatever


cubs will destroy mets..sorry mess fans

Blue said...

"Beisbol needs to do like the NBA and have the playoff teams seeded by record, regardless of if you won your division or not."

except there is such a crazy unbalanced schedule. you play like 18 games against each team in your division

Keef said...

except there is such a crazy unbalanced schedule. you play like 18 games against each team in your division


Yeah, but there are only 3 other teams in the division, and with a 162 game schedule, that's only 1/3 of your games in your division. And in NL Central this year, the 3 best records in baseball were in that division, so it's not like they were beating up on all of the weakest teams all year.

Keef said...

Goddman puppy has a UTI. Splains why he pisses everywhere

El Padrino said...

Destroy is a strong word.

Blue said...

yes, i'm all about making strong statements

Blue said...

i'm no flip-floppers

pick a side and commit

Blue said...

i'm like trump

i'm no hilary

Blue said...

doesn't mean i'd vote for trump...just means i like making strong bold statements and sticking to them...even when i look like a fool (which is often)

Blue said...

that's a bold statement cotton

Meiz said...

The Bears are beating the Lions

Keef said...

XM is so easy to negotiate with. Cmk's subscription is ending 11/7. I called to cancel, they offered 12 months for $99, I said no. They offered 6 months for $45, I said no. They offered 5 months for $25, I said yes.

Blue said...

you know you can listen to the radio for free

Keef said...

I do

Keef said...

Did you know that playing cards with Kenny Rogers gets old pretty fast?

Meiz said...

So pleased with playing golf tomorrow with regular friends instead of golf friends. Let me be awful and not have to care about it.

Blue said...

now that song is stuck in my head

Blue said...

why do you care what golf friends think?

if you're awful, then be awful

Keef said...

We are going to Flagstaff tomorrow. It's sposed* to rain. Boooo

Blue said...

you guys sure go to flagstaff a lot

Blue said...

i'm thinking that eventually tom brady runs out of gas

Blue said...

unless he's electric like a tesla

Keef said...

you guys sure go to flagstaff a lot


I wouldn't say a lot. This is the 2nd time this year. Probably more than you, though.

Keef said...

Cmk wanted to take the kids to a pumpkin patch where it is < 95° now. Apparently it doesn't feel like fall here.

Blue said...

women.

and pumpkin patches

Keef said...

inorite

Meiz said...

TOM BRADY IS IMMORTAL

Meiz said...

"why do you care what golf friends think?"

Because that the point of golf friends. We're supposed to push each other.

Blue said...

i thought the point of golf friends was someone to go play golf (golfing) with

Keef said...

We're supposed to push each other.


Like rough touch?

Keef said...

I thought golfing was a non contact sport

Blue said...

that's just when you are golfing with your non-golf friends

Keef said...

apparently

Meiz said...

You don't have golf friends? I kinda envy that.

tem said...

Meiz and keef are my golfing friends.

tem said...

Wow Michigan

Keef said...

Harvey is dealing. Looks like it's his night

Keef said...

Wow Michigan


Just saw that. Unreal

tem said...

That punter is not getting laid tonight

El Padrino said...

Fucking punters

El Padrino said...

Murphy! Is this real life?

El Padrino said...

These Lincoln commercials with Rust Chole are dogshit

Blue said...

rust wouldn't be caught dead in a lincoln

Blue said...

that fake punt the colts ran last night was awesome, best trick play ever

Blue said...

i'm sick of peyton manning. hope this is his last year

so tired of him acting like somebody else is to fault when he throws a bad pass, or a stupid interception. He just flat out misses passes all the time now, it's awful to watch

Blue said...

those were the things i hated about him when he was in Indy, and he hadn't really done that the last couple of years.

well, the shitty peyton is back

Keef said...

whatta gotta Brock Osweiler?

Blue said...

yeah, option B isn't much better

it's like Eli and Peyton switched bodies this year

Keef said...

So you think Brock is a better option at this point?

Blue said...

i mean, they're 6-0, so whatever

but i think the gap between PM and Osweiler is a lot smaller than it used to be, so there wouldn't be nearly the drop-off if manning got hurt

Blue said...

they won't beat the packers, patriots, or bengals if he's throwing 3 picks in a game

or the steelers

or the chargers

ok, maybe the chargers

Keef said...

i mean, they're 6-0, so whatever

but i think the gap between PM and Osweiler is a lot smaller than it used to be, so there wouldn't be nearly the drop-off if manning got hurt



So, no. Got it.

Blue said...

no

Blue said...

i'm not there yet

when they're 6-4 and have lost 4 in a row

then i'll be ready from the wizard of Os

Blue said...

*for

Meiz said...

Hi guys. I'm shockingly not hammered right now. Fucking back to work tomorrow.

Meiz said...

I think most NFL QBs are wildly overvalued.

Keef said...

How about Greinke opting out of 3 years and $71 million. Is someone gonna give him $200 million?

Keef said...

I think most professional ath-a-letes are wildly overvalued.


*fized

Blue said...

yes, somebody will pay him (see dodgers, yankees, redsox, cubs)

Meiz said...

"How about Greinke opting out of 3 years and $71 million. Is someone gonna give him $200 million?"

He's coming back to Milwaukee.

Meiz said...

"I think most professional ath-a-letes are wildly overvalued."

No, the market determines their value. I think the QB market is due for a price adjustment.

Blue said...

teams realize that it gets really difficult to win superbowls with a QB making 20m...but the cap is supposed to go way up next year, so who knows.

tem said...

peyton hit the wall.

he has to be done after this season.

El Padrino said...

Peytons been done for at least a year. There shot was the ravens year. Incredible loss. Then shellacked by Seattle. That started the downfall. Last 7 games of last year he was pitiful.

El Padrino said...

But he is still better than half the other teams qb. Id rather his dead carcass than Ryan mallet or Kirk cousins or Ryan Fitzpatrick or caperdick or mcnown

Keef said...

No, the market determines their value.



Right. And the market overvalues most athletes.

Blue said...

cade mcnown hasn't been in the league for a while

Blue said...

giants not letting their kicker score yesterday won my week in FNFL.

good work giants

Blue said...

back in playoff contention, even without jamaal charles and his shitty knees

Keef said...

I'm 5-1 and have the 2nd most points. This week I'm playing the 6-0 team that's killing everyone. And I'm gonna be missing James Jones, Emmanuel Sanders, Bengals D, Broncos K. Woe. Rams D is available, hopefully can pick them up with my #3 waiver spot.

El Padrino said...

:)

Keef said...

Congrats LP and TP

El Padrino said...

Don't you dare

Blue said...

i guess i'm a royals fan now

Keef said...

I'll be rooting for the Mess

Aitch said...

I really wanted to see the Cubs finally win.

ToddPacker said...

"Congrats LP and TP"

thanks, and congrats to you on tOSU winning back to back NC this year

Blue said...

maybe the cubs need one of those '04 redsox rallies to finally break the curse.
