Thoughts from insidej0b
8-7 last week. Got Flacdcoed – again. (Remember all the “Is Glacco elite talk last year? Anyone heard any of that lately? Why do I ever pick the Ravens when I think their QB sucks as bad as he does? Without his pick six…never mind. Screw you, Joe Flacco, you don’t even belong under center, much less in the discussion of “elite” quarterbacks. Straight garbage.
Coin flips don’t work, analyzing trends and comparing statistics doesn’t either. This week, I’m just picking whoever. Let’s see how it goes.
Saints – Short week and all, Greer done for the year, you know they’ve got to be ready for this garbgage Atlanta team that has pretty much quit already. Willing to bet this is a close game for much of it, probably the best effort the Falcons put out for the rest of the season. They’re still going to lose and I think it will end up being by double-digits.
Steelers – Why not? The Bengals hung 40 on the Browns and The Steelers looked like they remembered how to play football in beating the Lions.
Lions – Not much faith in a team that can put up 27 points in one-quarter and be shut out for the other three, but I am looking at the Bucs as a slump-buster for the Lions this week.
Vikings – I just don’t think whoever that guy is at QB for Green Bay is any good and the Crykings did manage to put up 20 against the Seahawks, while Green Bay only managed a meager 13 points against the dreadful Giants defense.
Texans – Gary Kubiak should be fired for pulling Keenum. What a moron. Keenum is the starter again and they are playing the Jags, so there’s that.
Chiefs – I don’t believe in “trap games” but I’m not as confident in the Chiefs this week as I have in the past. (Purely based on the emotional nature of playing Denver last week.) What I think is in their favor is the ridiculous defensive game plan used against Manning will be scrapped and they will return to snot-bubbling quarterbacks.
Panthers – I really wish this team sucked again.
Bears – Bears weather isn’t Bears weather anymore with Marc Trestman’s offense, and after last week, they will be very happy to play in that turd of a dome in St. Louis.
Ravens – Screw you, Joe Flacco. Screw you.
Colts – There are some definite flaws showing with this Colts team of late and think the Cards can do this, but Carson Palmer will become Carson Palmer again this week and pretty much just shit the bed because it’s what he does.
Raiders – I have no faith in either of these teams to do anything consistently, so I’ll take the Raiders at home.
Giants – The Cowboys defense sucks donkey balls and the Giants seem to have something going right now. I’m most likely completely wrong about this and will be making my own Manning-face after this game ends.
Broncos – Sorry, New England, but the only way you’re winning this game is if you get the same bullshit calls you did when the Saints played in your house. (I would not be surprised in the least to see this indeed happen.)
49ers – Jim Haslett and RGIII are frauds.
