Week 14 yo

Serial podcast started again today.  Interesting story.  would be interesting to hear if Jug were to listen if it would change his mind on the Bowe Bergdahl story, but only after the whole thing has come out. Anyhoo....

baseball trades and FA signings...maybe the rockies can get Jose Fernandez

Basketball, warriors are 23-0, I guess that makes them the best

Henry will probably win the heisman, but i'm not sure he deserves it more than McCaffery.  But then again, maybe people are making a big deal about McCaffery because he's from denver and a white runningback, so they aren't held to as high of standard/expectation..which seems racist.

Last week's picks....i went 9-7, respectable, and EP went 6-9...loser.  Bringing our season totals to 92-79-4 (.538) for me and 83-74-4 (.528) for him.  I'm gonna finish strong, and EP is going to fade in the last 2 minutes like the Giants.

Vikings +10 vs Cardinals
This is a big line.  I get that the seahawks just destroyed the vikings in Minnesota. It's almost like they didn't know that they playoffs started last week.  I get that if you stop AP then you stop the vikings.  But how often has he been shut down two weeks in a row?   Short week, and Zimmer is pissed because he only got one cheeseburger.   I like the vikes to keep it close enough, cards still win 31-24.

Bills (pick'em) vs Eagles
Shady McCoy is gonna run hard, and you know Rex is going to give him every opportunity to stick it to his old team.  Needs about 150 rushing and 2 TDs #fantasyreasons  Overall, the bills are the better team.  And people are jumping back on the eagles bandwagon, but they aren't going to get 3 return TDs every week.  If they do, they will win, but they won't so they won't.  Throw in the distraction of all the Demarco Murray crap, and this eagles team is going to the shitter.   Bills win 24-17

Browns (pick'em) vs 49ers
Johnny Football.  i don't know, this is the worst game of the season.  it'll have a viewership less than the friends re-runs on nick at nite.  In a situation like this, i'll take the home team.   Maybe the browns can move to LA, browns win 13-10.

Lions (pick'em) vs Rams
Lions have been playing way better the last few weeks.  I blame Jim Bob Cooter.  It will be interesting to see how they react after having their hearts ripped out by Rodgers to Rogers.  But the rams are quitting on jeff fisher.  They don't have a QB, and are so one dimensional on offense it's ridiculous.  I'll take the lions 24-20.

My hands smell like garlic and onions right now

Bucs -3.5 vs Saints
Bucs are riding at tidal wave of emotion right now.  They need to throw it to ASJ like 50 times this weekend #fantasyreasons.  Saints are ok, lost their best player though to IR though.  So now it's just Brees.  they played their supberbowl last week, and lost, so the playoffs ended for them, but are just beginning for the bucs.  The bucs may just be able to slip into the playoffs by winning out. I was completely wrong about winston, kid can play, and as long as he's not raping anyone, he's a good QB.  Sorry Tem.  Bucs win the game 31-18

Jets -7.5 vs Titans
I think that may be too many points, but the one thing the JETS do is blitz.  and the one thing that mariota has trouble with is pressure.  So bad combination of the two.  Marshall should catch a lot of passes and at least 2 TDs #fantasyreasons, Jets win 31-20

Bengals -2.5 vs Steelers
I'm probably rooting for the steelers here.  which means the bengals will win.  Interesting dynamic in the AFC, there are 3 really good teams, and everyone else, so there's a big fight for the first round bye.  Bengals control their own destiny, which is an oxymoron because if it's destiny it's already pre-determined, but semantics.  Bengals score a lot of points, steelers score a lot of points, that won't change, AJ Green needs to have 2 TDs at least #fantasyreasons, Bengals win 41-38

Colts (off) vs Jags
I'm assuming there isn't a line because they aren't sure if Luck is going to play.  I think if he plays they lose.  Jags are a stunner, and need to score a lot of passing TDs #fantasyreasons  but i don't think Luck will play so i'll take the hasselbeck's and the colts win to stay in the playoffs 31-28.

Chargers +11.5 vs Chiefs
This line is stupid.  Chiefs are playing great right now, but also against shitty shitty teams.  The chargers are still as shitty team, and I look forward to the chiefs destroying either the Colts or the Texans in the playoffs, but until then, i'm not laying that many points in a division game.  Chiefs win, 31-28.

Bears -3 vs Redskins
Skins are awful on the road.  Bears are awful at home (1-5? seriously), something's gotta give, and I think getting embarrassed by the 49ers is a bigger deal than losing to matt cassell because your best player decides to run backwards 20 yards and fumble.  Skins still have something to play for because the NFC lEast sucks so bad.  is this the year a team makes the playoffs at 6-10?  I think so.  Bears win 28-17

Panthers -8.5 vs Falcons
Panthers are undefeated at home this year.  Falcons can't get out of their own way in any aspect of the game.  I might think the falcons keep it close, but I might also think that doing crack is a good idea, but then I think...."better not".  I like the panthers in a rout to end any chance of the falcons making the playoffs 31-10.

Seahawks (off) vs Ravens
No idea why this doesn't have a line.  No question the seahawks are going to win.  The better question is will they get a pick six.  I think no, Matt Schaub will not throw a pick 6 this week, going out on a limb.  'Hawks win 35-10.

Raiders +8.5 vs Broncos
The Brock train rolls on, but the broncos don't blow anyone out. The only game that they blew somebody out was the packers on the night they put Mr. B into the ring of fame.  Other than that, it's been mostly a one score game.  Broncos D is stout, and tough and fast and whatever else you want to call it.  I think the broncos still win, but don't cover by 8.5, so they win 24-20.

Packers -7.5 vs Cowboys
I don't know, maybe that's too many points.  There are still a ton of flaws with this Green Bay team, but jesus the cowboys are awful.  You don't just go into Lambeau and win unless you're the lions (or the bears i guess), and the cowboys are no lions (or bears).  McFadden should have a great game though #fantasyreasons.  Pack win 31-17

Patriots -3 vs Texans
This is a more realistic line for the Pats.  I don't think the pats bad luck will continue.  Texans need this win to keep pace with the Colts, but that's not going to happen.  Pats D is really tough, texans O is floppy cock.  So i'm going with the pats.  28-24

Dolphins (pick'em) vs Giants
The "who cares bowl".  giants at least have something to play for, but will lose because they can't hold onto a lead in the last 2 minutes.  (you know they'd be like 10-2 if games were only 58 minutes long, but they're not, so they've got that going for them).  Who cares, dolphins win again 15-13.

I've always thought Winston on the field was good but off the field a disaster. He's doing better on the field than I expected, me might be ROY, and off field he is doing about a million times better than expected.

I am SAS he has not been suspended for something.

tem said...

Shaub plays for the Ravens? I missed that . Never knew who took over for Flacco.

Keef said...

He's injured now, it might be Claussen time

Kev, why are the Reds so hellbent on moving Aroldis?

El Padrino said...

Vikes

"Kev, why are the Reds so hellbent on moving Aroldis?"

Last year of his contract. They move him now, they can get a bit more, because the team that trades for him would at least get compensatory picks if he walks next off-season. If they wait until the deadline, they won't get as much in return.

Meiz said...

Ah, I thought they might have extended him last year for some ridiculous money.

Keef said...

Why the Dodgers want him I have no idear

Blue said...

With 21 Ks, new Rockies slugger Mark Reynolds will pass Barry Bonds with 1540 whiffs. Bonds needed 12,606 PAs to do it. Reynolds has 4,812.
