Thoughts from insidej0b

I don’t even know for sure how I did last week, but I think I screwed it up on four games – including the Saints. Figures. Hey, on the bright side, if the Saints had won, I would have stayed my happy ass home for the rest of the evening and not bothered with going to see The Cure at Voodoo Fest, which turned out to be one of the best live shows I have ever seen. Ever. Never was a huge fan, but always respected what they did and the impact that they’ve had on an entire generation of songwriters that I really like. Seeing them live is up there with seeing Radiohead – as a show in its entirety – and right there with Pearl Jam in their stage presence and all around “oneness” while performing. Walked home from City Park feeling lighter than I ever have. Good stuff.

Let’s see if I can do better this week:

Redskins – Even though RGIII and Haslett are frauds, I think their fraudulence isn’t as much of an issue as the inconsistency of the Vikings entire team. If they can keep AP under 100 yards (which isn’t going to be easy with that Haslett run D) then they can win this game.

Seahawks – Man, the Falcons suck and all they have left is Tony Gonzales. Dude should have retired.
Lions – The Lions offense is better than the Bears D. Simple as that.

Colts – Biggest point spread of the week with the Colts at -11. I don’t see it being that big of a win, but a win nonetheless.

Eagles – Even though the Eagles sport one of the crappiest defenses in the league, this game would be like picking the Saints without Drew Brees. Just can’t do it.

Giants – I thought the Raiders had something resembling a good defense a few weeks ago. Just goes to show how quickly things change in this league.

Titans – Jaguars.

Steelers – Barely the favorite at home against the Bills with EJ Manuel returning at quarterback, I think the Steelers take this one. Possibly by two scores. Considering my past predictions about things that I just have a feeling about, the Bills will pull their starters midway through the third after breaking Roethlisberger’s jaw.

Ravens – Just because. The Bengals are so erratic.

49ers – The Panthers are playing some nasty football right now and are legitimately making things interesting in the NFC South. But nasty football is the 9ers specialty and I think they come out on top.

Cardinals – The Cardinals secondary will outmaneuver Case Keenum, who has looked great so far. Maybe the Texans pull it together with the Kubiak scare, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

Chargers – Laugh all you want. When the Chargers are good, they’re really good – and vice-versa. I’ll think they’ll be good this week with the Broncos coming to them.

Saints – Man, screw the Jets. But, even more, screw the Cowboys. Dez Bryant is a diva bitch cast in the Michael Irvin mold and will bring this team down. They are not taking the air out of the Dome in a prime time game.

Buccaneers – The Dolphins drama of late tops that of even the Bucs – which is a feat one would have considered nearly impossible. I’m picking the team with less baggage, and that’s the Bucs. This could be their only win of the season.
