Thoughts from insidej0b
Hey, guys, did you know that the Saints are playing Sunday? In the Dome? Doesn’t it feel like it’s been a really, really long time? The Saints are going to embarrass Doug Marrone and the Bills Sunday. I’ll tell you a little bit more about it and what I think is going to happen in the games that those other teams play below.
Panthers – If the Panthers beat the Bucs like the 6 points they’re being given on the road says they should, Schiano should be fired immediately following the game.
Lions – Tough one to pick. Two great passing offenses and two crappy pass defenses. I’ll take the home team and Stafford/Megatron over Romo/Bryant.
49ers – Beating the Jaguars has become so commonplace that there must be a phrase coined for it to describe “sucking at life.” I will think of something.
Chiefs – Best defense in football. I’ll think about picking their opponents once they give me a reason to. Like I said a few weeks ago, the Chiefs have a better chance of winning that division than the anointed ones in Denver.
Saints – The Bills should be both pleased and disappointed that the Saints are coming off a bye. Pleased, because they aren’t as pissed from that bullshit that went down in Foxborough as they would have been had this game been played last weekend. Disappointed, because they’re still plenty pissed but also have gotten a chance to heal up. May God have mercy on their souls.
Patriots – LET’S GO DOLPHINS!!! What happened to the team that got trounced in “The Battle of the Unbeatens” on Monday Night Football? They sucked then, and they still suck now. Hope they beat the Patriots, but that just ain’t happening in Foxborough.
Eagles – The New York Football Giants (anyone who still says that crap should be smacked) got their first win of the season. Against Minnesota. What a pathetic excuse for a football team this Giants club is. They should just mail it in for the remainder of the year and make something happen in the draft.
Bengals – The Bengals should beat the Jets handily at home, but I also said that about the Falcons beating the Jets a few weeks ago. Picking NFL games will make you crazy if you try to use a formula or trends or apply anything other than your gut feeling to your decision. My gut says the Bengals will win.
Raiders – Not sure how they’re 2.5 point dogs at home against a team as bad as the Steelers (who, admittedly, are starting to play much better football) is kinda shocking. I know the Raiders stink too, but typically the home team on the West coast would get the nod in odds making when both teams suck. Whatever.
Cardinals – Arizona will win this, or should I say Atlanta will lose this, on the last play of the game. That’s just how Mike Smith rolls.
Broncos – RGIII and Haslett are frauds. The Broncos are not.
Packers – Even though they literally have nobody to throw the ball to anymore, they’ll still beat the hapless Vikings.
Seahawks – Right when Sam Bradford starts to put together something resembling a good season, dude gets knocked out for the year. It’s not that Bradford would have given the Rams a chance in this game, but he could have kept it closer than whoever (NOT RYAN GRIFFIN) suits up in his place will. Or maybe his replacement will have one of those “y’all ain’t got no film on me and I’m gonna go off on you,” kind of games. Who knows? And, honestly, who cares?
