Picks

Amazing how Black Friday as evolved.  From an innocent way to categorize an especially profitable day in retail to running ridiculous sales a full week before Thanksgiving.  America is the best and the worst at the same time.


Singles Day in China is bigger by the way.


Fucking China


Are there any players in the NFL you miss?   I was thinking with Peyton on his way out, I'm going to miss watching him.  Started to think of other players I miss.  Steve McNair.  Tough dude.  I miss Warren Moon going back to my adolescent days watching with my Dad and Pop Pop.  Randal Cunningham even when he was killing my gmen.  Miss Mike Alstott because he was a wrecking ball.  Miss Easy Ed McCaffery.  Joy watching his son running in Stanford.  Miss Barry.  You know there was only one Barry.  Speaking of the Lions miss the Wayne Fontes firing clock, will they pull it out on Turkey day and save his job?  Enjoyed Willie Roaf Beef!  I can go on and on.


Big boxing match this weekend.


Props to Frank Beamer coaching his last game in Blacksburg this weekend.  Great leader.


I think Brian Windhorst smells like cold cuts.


Oak even over DET
We'll see if the Raiders are for real.  If they can't go on the road and beat the Lions then they are mediocre and not a playoff contender.


Colts +5 over ATL
If Atlanta had a pass rush I'd take them but I think because they don't it doesn't matter how old and not mobile Hassy is.  They keep it close.


Jets -3 over HOU
The Jets have matchups all over the place.  They should beat Houston pretty good.  That d line should be able to dominate up front and I'm sure Bowles will make it rain blitzes.


PHILLY -5.5 over Bucs
I thin Sanchez runs that offense better than Bradtard.


Denver even over BEARS
Cutty has been lights out.  No Ware but I think the Broncos have enough defense to really give that offensive line problems.  And I like Osweiller.  Think he'll be fine and I think they'll be able to open up the playbook a bit and call a more aggressive game.  There are throws Peyton just can't make anymore.


St Loo +2 over RAVENS
Baltimore got robbed but put themselves in that position with what I've been saying all year.  Horrendous secondary.  Once the Rams get their playmakers going the Flacco's won't be able to keep up.


Dallas even over MIAMI
Romo makes all the difference in the world.  Boys get off the schneid.


Skins +8.5 over CAR
The later it gets, the tougher it gets.  Margins become less and less.  Give me those points.  If Kirk Cousins scores and does that Cam dance, the internet will fall apart.


SD +3 over Chiefs
I'm zagging because everyone else is zigging.  Apparentely KC is bout to go on a run straight to a division playoff game because they have an easy schedule and they have been playing well as of late.  One more tidbit, retiring of Tomlinson's jersey at halftime. 


MIN even over Green Bay
Game of the week.  The Packers are really struggling, getting nothing from the RB position leaving it all on Rodgers.  WR's can't seem to get open consistently and the defense is on the field way too long.  Meanwhile Peterson is hitting his stride and that defense is big and nasty.  Changing of the guard.  I believe in purple.  Hope Kodiac130 is watching.


San Fran +13.5 over SEATTLE
It's like the handicappers WANT Seattle to be the Seattle of old at home.  They have been putrid at home.  Wildly inconsistent on defense and even more inconsistent on offense.  That offensive line is a problem.  I don't know how the Niners are going to score points but I think the spread is too high.  Would lay 8-10. 


ARI -4.5 over Bengals
The first flex of the season!  Remember when Carson Palmer quit on the Bengals?  That was fun.  I think the Cardinals secondary might be the best in football.  NS. The Red BB gun is going to struggle.


Buf 8.5 over NE
You think Amendola is a little pissed EVERYONE including Brady is all like well you can't replace a Julian Edelman.  He basically runs the same routes as Edelman.  If you didn't give them a name or number they would look like the same WR.  Maybe Edelman is quicker.  Anyway Rex has one less thing to worry about so he can maybe try and for real cover Gronk.  See what happens from there.  Problem is the Bills need to find out a way to score points.

Explaining

Aitch said...

Do I over explain? I thought my thing was woe and attention whoring?

Aitch said...

I don't get the knock on Amendola either, LP. I mean, he used to put up numbers when he was in St. Louis. He just couldn't stay healthy.

Aitch said...

And even that's a bit misleading. He had a broken collarbone and and a torn triceps. It's not like he was tweaking his hamstring or suffering from migraines.

El Padrino said...

Amendola has at least 6 yaaa huge catches this season. Big first Downs big grabs late.

tem said...

"Over exposing is an LP staple"

this is accurate too probably

tem said...

couldn't stay healthy means just that. severity ain't got nothing to do with it. guy can't stay on the field.

tem said...

also, Pats offense is gold for him.

crossing routes 90% of the time.

tem said...

finally has a QB that doesn't throw it to him midfield though. brady gets you to the hashes so you clear the LBs.

ToddPacker said...

fake heart attack watch in Columbus tonight

Meiz said...

My sister keeps letting her boyfriend name her kids. That pisses me off royally.

Meiz said...

"Do I over explain? I thought my thing was woe and attention whoring?"

Asking for unnecessary explanations is also one of your things.

tem said...

Tressel was calling the plays tonight.

Save that RB for next week. Didn't need to give him the ball today.

Keef said...

Congrats on beating FAU, to

Aitch said...

"couldn't stay healthy means just that. severity ain't got nothing to do with it. guy can't stay on the field."

I disagree. There's a difference between a guy who is always knocked up with muscle strains, sprains, etc vs. a guy who just had a couple of "tough luck" injuries.

Meiz said...

I'm going to stop coming to work soon.

The new people have been hired on starting at more than my wage.

tem said...

You should ask for a raise

tem said...

Or get a new job somewhere else. Sometimes the only way to get a raise is to get a new job

Meiz said...

Right. I'm not going to be hasty.

Aitch said...

The play where Flacco got injured (I assume) looked so innocuous.

El Padrino said...

Innocuous. Nigga please

ToddPacker said...

"Congrats on beating FAU, to"

I would argue that FAU won. next two games will be beatings, FSU then Bama (outside chance it's ole miss). hopefully Florida plays an FAU type team in their bowl game

Aitch said...

"Innocuous. Nigga please"

You had to look it up, huh?

Keef said...

mize, 50% off clearance from Lids today

Meiz said...

Good looking out.

Meiz said...

Keef said...

Yeah I boat* the Reds AS game hat with Mr Red on the front.

ToddPacker said...

"FU vs OSU in the Citrus Bowl"

Urb is gonna find a way to still make the playoff. PSU beats MSU and tOSU beats UM and Iowa and they're in

Blue said...

Except they won't beat Michigan this weekend

Keef said...

And no way MSU loses to PSU

El Padrino said...

Tp is goat rev jinxer

Meiz said...

"Yeah I boat* the Reds AS game hat with Mr Red on the front."

I dig it. If it weren't for the Reds being in the NL Central, there are a couple of Mr Red hats I'd want.

El Padrino said...

Yuck ravens browns next week

El Padrino said...

Get a Mr. MET hat

Lol

El Padrino said...

Big day

Meiz said...

Indeed.

Keef said...

I'm getting ready to pay a guy $302k for a Ferrari he totaled 2 days after he got it.

ToddPacker said...

Ferrari guy sounds like a bad driver

Keef said...

Other person was at fault, turnt* in front of my guy. Sucks for him too, his insurance only covers 100k

tem said...

So are you paying him 302 or 100?

Meiz said...

Was thinking. Just once, I want to have the LP Seven Fishes Christmas dinner.

Keef said...

So are you paying him 302 or 100?


$302k. Then we go after the other guy and usaa for reimbursement

tem said...

Oh the other guys insurance only covers 100.

Didn't read it so good 1st time

Meiz said...

"$302k. Then we go after the other guy and usaa for reimbursement"

Oh, so an entitled Vet?

Aitch said...

"Just once, I want to have the LP Seven Fishes Christmas dinner"

I can only imagine the hilarity that would ensue from you and LP sharing a holiday meal.

Aitch said...

"Oh, so an entitled Vet?"

I read that as the guy at fault is covered by USAA, not the Ferrari guy.

Aitch said...

Also, I'd love you define "entitled vet," please.

Aitch said...

*for you to define

El Padrino said...

Scrap together some plane fare meiz

Keef said...

Yeah I work for the part of Nationwide that insures the affluent market. It's great. I've had some claims with some actors and ath-a-letes, but most of them are real estate people or attorneys

Keef said...

He's cool. Fucking guy is younger than me and has a new Ferrari, a couple of Benzes, and like a $2 million house.

El Padrino said...

Real estate people or attorney's
