Week 4 Picks

Well week 3 was fun.  I went 9-7 again, bringing my total for the year to 18-14.  EP had a stronger outing going 10-5, so now he's 17-13.  We'll make you money

only a couple unbelievables this week.

unbelievable that the raiders are 2-1, maybe they are for real?  maybe we don't get too excited by beating a shitty browns team

cardinals are just plain unbelievable

unbelievable that both teams who had huge lines (over 2tds) this last week both covered...doesn't happen often, but around here we call it the blood moon.

Jersey Mike's makes the best subs

On to the picks

Steelers +3.5 over Ravens
Home game on a short week.  Ravens got beat up by Cincy, now have to travel.  I get that the steelers won't have rapelisberger, but last time I checked they still have antonio brown, and leveon bell.  So give them the advantage here, plus they're home on a short week.  Ravens looked like a dumpster fire, but not the cool kind of dumpster fire, the crappy ones.  If they couldn't cover AJ Green, imagine what Antonio is going to do to them.  Steelers 21-17.

Dolphins +1 over JETS
IN LONDON??!!! (joey tribiani voice).  This london shit is for the birds.  If I was a phins season ticket holder i'd be pissed, what do you mean they only get to have 7 home games.. fuck you NFL.  That being said, the game will be over before I wake up.  Dolphins got beat down, and typically I think decent teams respond the next week after a beat down.  Jets got beat down too, but they suck, so i'm taking the dolphins here 21-17

 Jags +10 over Colts
Jaguars got annihilated last week, should play better this week.  Colts still look like garbage, and now Andrew Luck's arm might be hurt, or some crap.  10 points is too much to be giving up when your team smells of foul goat's testicles. Somebody picked up Blake Bortles off the waiver wire in my FNFL league...serious. Jaguars keep it close, probably still lose though, but they'll cover.  Colts 21-17

Bills -5.5 over Giants
Bills are the best team in New York, no doubt about it.  But then again, they've been the best team in NY for the last 20 years or so, since the Giants and Jets are really in Jersey.  Tyrod Taylor has shown up.  Making Rex look like a genius again.  Shady McCoy is probably out this week, but not a big deal, they have Karlos.  I think Sammy Watkins is hurt too though..I don't know, research is for interns.  Giants should be well rested, and the NFC east is a toss-up right now with Romo out.  Maybe this is the division that a 7-9 team wins it.  Still i'm taking the Rex's at home in a rocking stadium for the battle of New York.  Bills win this one 21-14

Panthers -3 over Bucs
Can't believe that the Panthers are going to be 4-0.  Very unlikely 4-0 team.  Road game, schmoad game, i'll take Cam over Jameis right now.  The Texans ran all over the bucs last week, and the Panthers are much better running team.  It's that simple.  Panthers 21-17

Skins +3 over Eagles
Eagles should not be road favorites against anyone.  except maybe the bears, but that's not who they are playing.  Skins ground and pound.  They've had extra time to prepare.  They won't be tired.  They have the better defense.  Sam Bradford has a vagina....etc.  Skins in a rout  21-17

Raiders -3 over Bears
That just happened.  Not only are the raiders a road favorite, but I actually think they'll win.  Don't think the Bears get shutout this week though.  I wonder if Jay Cutler sat at home smoking his cigarettes and fucking his model wife, smirking, the entire game.  Who am I kidding, he didn't even watch the game last week, and neither did I.  I did watch the raiders some, and their offense is starting to be a little bit more explosive.  I got them in this one, Raiders 21-17 (by the way, raise your hand if you thought the raiders would be 3-1 through the first 4 games of the season.  Put your hand down Tyler, you liar)

Falcons -7 over Texans
I like the moxy that the falcons are playing with.  Came back strong on the road in the 2nd half against the Cowboys.  I bet that Dan Quinn went in at half time and realized they were playing against Brandon Weeden.  Guess what, this week its Ryan Mallett...ahahahahaha.  4-0 never felt so easy.  If this game was in Houston, i'd give the texans a shot, but it's not, and I liked hard knocks.  Maybe they shouldn't have cut the guy with the cool socks.  Falcons win 21-13

Bungles -4 over Chefs
This is a game where I don't like either team.  Cincy has looked damn good so far though.  They were champions of September this year.  Crown their asses.  Chefs haven't figured out that they can throw the ball further than 5 yards downfield.  Yes, the rules allow it.  I almost went with the Chefs here because of the decent team responding after a bad week (or 2), but decided I'd rather be right, that stick to that rule.  Bungles 21-16

Browns +9 over Chargers
9 points is just too much for a team that gone blown out in Minnesota.  Chargers can't stop the run.  Browns can't run the ball...something's gotta give this week!!!  In what will be the least watched game of the weekend (except that London crap), the Chargers roll to the win, but they can't cover 9 points.  Chargers 21-17.

Packers -9.5 over 49ers
Maybe the 49ers are just better at home,  but i'm completely off the bandwagon that I was never really on.  Do you think that Aaron Rodgers remembers that the '9ers took Alex Smith instead of him.  Aaron could have stayed home in the city by the bay, and been a cult hero.  Instead he's gotta go bang hot chicks in Wisconsin.  Nobody likes cheese that much.  He's going to destroy this team, big vendetta against them.  Packers roll in this one 21-10.

Cardinals -7.5 over Rams
Carson Palmer is on fire and Stan Kroenke wants out of St. Louis so bad he set the turf on fire last week.  Todd Gurley maybe had the worst game of his life.  Rams looked so good in week 1, what the hell happened.  They still have a stout defensive line, but apparently the only teams they can beat are the seahawks.  In case you missed it, Carson Palmer is on fire, might be a Rodgers/Palmer duel in the NFC championship this year.  How is that for making overly grand hyperbolic statements after 3 weeks.  Cards roll 21-13

Vikings +7 over Broncos
not a reverse jinx here.  I still think the broncos win this game, but nothing other than the defense, makes me anywhere remotely comfortable with giving up 7 points. That being said, Bridgewater has looked like crapola.  AP leads the league in rushing again, but Denver's D is ranked #1 in the league and only giving up like 80 yards rushing per game, and no points.  Broncos have given up 49 points so far this year, and 14 of those are off of pick 6's from manning, so in total the defense has actually only given up 35 points in 3 games.  I think that's ok.  All that crap being said, the offense is horrible (ranked 30th in the league, right behind Minnesota).  It's good enough to win at Mile High, but won't cover.  Broncos 21-17

Saints (off) over Cowboys
I'm assuming that Drew Brees plays.  I'm assuming that Tony Romo does not.  Even so, I like the Verizon commercial guy better than weeden.  Saints are too good to go 0-4, so i'll take them here in the upset.  21-17

Lions +10 over Seahawks
Nothing about the Seahawks offense makes me think they'll beat anyone by double digits.  Lions aren't as bad as they've shown.  This will be another tough game for the Lions, brutal schedule to start the season.  Lions probably need to call plays the defense doesn't know...because knowing is half the battle.   I see a lot of fieldgoals in this game, and Golden Tate hates the seahawks now, and russel wilson who was always sleeping with Tate's wife.  Fucking Dangerusswilson.  What kind of a douche has that as his twitter name anyway.  why not just Russell_Wilson_NFL.  or seabiscuit or something.  Anyway, hawks win but don't cover 21-17

Jersey mikes bread sucks. All those places suck. They neglect the bread. The bread has to have some bite.

tem said...

Pats out ruins my auto fan duel winning team of gronk, Brady, Edelman plus shit.

tem said...

Jersey Mike's is ok enough. They know what they are. I like that about them.

tem said...

They aren't like subway with this worker is an artisan shit.

tem said...

I don't need sandwich tips from hike school kid. I was eating sandwiches before that kid was a gleam in his daddy's eye.

Blue said...

their bread is fine, it soaks up all the juices

Keef said...

Jersey Mike's makes the best subs

tem said...

Yeah we still have some WG Grinders

tem said...

Which Wich is the new thing.

They are good because they are new and trying to get people hooked.

Firehouse is ok too but too smokey inside.

tem said...

And they lean on this firehouse thing too much. They make it seem like all the profits go to firemen and their families....I guess technically true. The owners are formet firemen.

And they sell buckets for like a bazillion dollars and then like 1 cent goes to charity

Blue said...

why would you buy a bucket from the sandwich shop

Blue said...

i've had which which. it's ok...

Blue said...

i do like potbelly's though, i know they're growing like crazy

good stuff there, kind of an upperscale quiznos

Blue said...

"Yes, this. Just turn around and tell the clowns to chill"

exactly, turn around and say "hey, man, i'm with my kids here" and EP would have shut up

Keef said...

Which Wich is the new thing.

El Padrino said...

Blue is right. Steelers are the play tonight.

El Padrino said...

I dont recall. I remember almost fighting a Chinese dude for acting like a twat when hsilep dropped a little beer on his sneakers.

Keef said...

El Padrino said...

story?

guy dropped a beer on my leg as he was passing me into the aisle and i said, "Cmon bro" like in a tone that was not agressive at all, just like in a tone that was like "damn cant believe this shit"

and he was like i was gonna say sorry but now since you acting like a fag i wont, fag or something to that effect so a verbal argument ensued where I was calling him a tough guy, you know real tough guy and he was like whatta ya want to do the usual nonsense, dick measuring shit so i told him after the game we can go around the corner to 8 ave, no cops and we'll handle it, by the third period he was buying me a beer and apologizing

devil fan no less
