RJ's NFL Picks: Week Fourteen
BC Magazine ^ | December 4, 2012 | RJ Elliott

Posted on 12/04/2012 8:00:43 PM PST by FL2012

Chicago (8-4) at Minnesota (6-6) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: Chicago by 3)

The Bears have lost three of their last four games. Their lone victory in that stretch came against Minnesota. The Vikings are 5-1 at home this year. Quarterback Christian Ponder has thrown for more than 200 yards just twice in his last six games, and for more than 150 yards just three times in his last six outings.

---RJ's Pick: Minnesota by 3

New York Jets (5-7) at Jacksonville (2-10) - 1:00 p.m. (Line: New York Jets by 2.5)

As of this writing, no one knows who will be starting under center for the Jets this week. It could be Mark Sanchez, who was benched last week after throwing three interceptions and completing just 48 percent of his passes for a QB rating of 21.4. It could be Greg McElroy, who replaced Sanchez and led the Jets to their only score of the game. Or it could even be Tim Tebow, who was not active last week due to some broken ribs. The Jaguars have the NFL's second worst point differential.

---RJ's Pick: New York Jets by 9

RJ? Who is RJ?
I’m in the top 20 of an online pool of over 5500 active players betting for PRIDE against the spread? What is RJ’s total record?
I have 112 victories.
NFL football betting is the WORST CHOICE of all betting endeavors.

No, I’m a huge baseball fan, and am also into basketball (although not as much of late), but I’ve never been a big football fan. When I watched the second half of the Notre Dame-USC game last weekend, it was the most football I had watched in a couple of years.

what i’se do no like about freeeper, is peeple are the same and your personalities meld into one conglomerate ... the freeper Godhead. I cannot distiquish betweens imppy billyboy goldwaterGOP and gopSterheadinMass. we need little pics on your post like those chat rooms. would help the elderly like me.

fieldmarshal has unique ideas so he is easy to distinquish from the crowd.

Rule 5 draft was interesting for the red sox.

AuH2ORepublican is very easy to distinguish in a crowd. He looks just like a young Ricardo Montalban and he comes in a soft Corinthian leather.

I wish I looked like a young Ricardo Montalban, back in his old "Baby, It's Cold Outside" days when he got all the ladies. I look more like a cross between Tim Pawlenty and Rick Santorum (who, coincidentally, were the two Republican presidential candidates I supported in 2011/2012).

This is me, only I'm much shorter and my sword is a switchblade.

You should not switch the blade on a guy in shades, which I wear, cause the sun hurts my eyes.

“Bears iz dead, phuk phootball. Phuking injuries.”

I cannot watch a game anymore; the amount of ads are mind numbing.

“When does spring training start?”

~2.5 months I think. No NHL sucks too.

NHL, thanks again UNIONS.

That piece of shite Fehr cancelled the World Series (Which would have been won by the White Sox over the Expos says I!) so I’m sure this is nothing to him.

End the lockout, impose a deal and void the contract of any player that doesn’t come to work is what I would do. I’m sure that’s illegal in this worker’s wunderland.

Fehr is complete garbage...just looking at him, you can see it.

I love your idea, Impy. Never happen, but still noteworthy.

Sportsradio here is saying some of the NHL owners are willing to cancel both this season AND next season. After beingthisclose to a deal and Fehr sh*tting in the punchbowl, they want to destroy him. I’d love to see the players fire his stank ass NOW.

There was some girl from Utah who plays football with the boys and she was sitting with Roger Goodell in the both. I am not sure why. There is a viral video of her on Youtube.

Thanks for the info.

Between the painty-waist that is Roger Goodell and the sheer amount of ads that they run before, during and after every game, I’m growing tired of the NFL.

If my team (SF) wasn’t a contender, I wouldn’t watch at all.

tiebreaker musings

Hous has h2h over DEN, giving them stronghold on bye
NE h2h and conf over DEN
BALT with a win over DEN this week gives them h2h over DEN & NE

cin/pt uncommon is 1=1
winner of h2h week 16 clinches tiebreaker.

NYJ has tb over CIN, not PT
BUFF & MI have tb over CIN/PT, still kickin.
SD still kickin.

SEA got nice tiebreakers
replying to FL2012 is futile because he is not real person.

yet, is this the team that lost to MIA? They got their hands full with BUFF-SF-STL

MN has clinched common games over CHI. Therefore has clinched tiebreaker over CHI. CHI cannot have better DIV rec if the 2 teams tie.

(head to head is split.)
but MN has much tougher schedule.
