first 1-5051-100101-106 next last
Went 9-5 last week, making me 39-23 for the season but my Week Six Picks are so dead on... well, look below:

Thursday Night Feetball has De Giants playing Da Bears- Can you say, "O and six."

"We called this news conference to say we are highly offended... that sportswriters across the nation keep calling the New York Giants "Not worth a five pound bag of Chickensh*t!"

TCU North will feed its Tigers some Buffalope, hopefully while not stepping in any buffalo doo

Another Battle of the Great Lakes breaks out in Cleveland and the Brownstains beat the Bankrupt Bozs

Silly girl, Seven, no way your Waiders beat my Old Dallas Texans... and my new hero, Big Chief Andy!

Cam puts his shaft into overdrive as he keeps the Jags in the no win column

Geno's Jets think they are Real Jersey Wiseguys and sPittburgh keeps them thinking so

Tampa Bay grows a pair and gets a win over the Iggles

Sorry, big, no Luck as your Packerwackers step knee deep in Crab crap in Baltimore

Allegra's Texicans get back to winning when the Yews come to town

Jacksonville at Denver? WHAT-- you have to ask?

Gad, I hate saying the Seahags will win, but they do this week over Allegra's Old Earlers

The 69er strutted their stuff last week over Allegra's Texicans, but this week the Red Byrds get them back to earth

Gadzooks, big! Neither of your teams win this week as the Saints hold down Tom Brady and give him a noogie to remember

Monday Night find Rivers and his Bolts having no Luck at all

And stop guess who is coming out of the bye and gay closet this week, it is Vick's Old Black Byrds and the Doll-Phins--

Okay, okay, enough with two weeks without a win! Sunday Night my Boys treat RG3... like a redheaded stepchild with a limp!

And finally, those of you too young to recall when the NFL was a real man's league, I offer the following:

And that was... way before Johnny Carson--

--went hunting for Frank... with a .38 on his hip--

Steelers go 0-5. Fans burn the city and demand Tomlins head. Big Ben Dons a dress and leaves for parts unknown.

Yup the hit that put him out of football.

Bednarik played both ways on that Eagle team. He said on the next play after watching the GI ants in the huddle whom all had their eyes fixed on him, as soon as the hike, he began running for the sidelines because he feared mass retaliation.

Those were the real days of football.

Tomlin should stay, but Ben has to go.

If there is one bright spot, a lousy season will put the Steelers in a good position for the next draft. The shopping list is a long one.

try telling that to the fans here. Big Ben can do no wrong and its all Tomlin fault.
This is a old team. and you are right, if they have a lousy season they have to start chopping deadwood.

I predict Tom Coughlin will be house hunting in Southern California next week. Beyond that, a bunch of "meh" games on Sunday except for the Aints and the Pats.

My upset of the week call : The Lambs go squeaking and meekly mewing past the OVERATED team from Houston 11-3 ( Somebody please get rid of Booger Bulger )

Meh...but I do like the visual of Ben in a dress.

Tomlin is t going anywhere (Rooney rule)...and Todd Haley SHOULD be shown the door.

I think the crux of the Steelers demise this year is the bad juju, karma, mojo of the OBOTRY of Dan “Old White Man Guilt” Rooney. Did Yinz know that the PUBLICLY funded HEINZ Field will be hosting Sebelius and “rolling out” ObamaCare in PA. For this shameless pandering to Dear Leader te steeler brand deserves to EPIC FAIL. Art Rooney needed to reign his old man in when he got back from his gig in Ireland. He obviously didn’t. I hope they go 0-16.

There is seismic activity over at Allegheny Cemetary. Art Rooney, Sr must be spinning in his grave.

Rooney will not fire Tomlin. That should be a given.
And Dan Rooney shameless sucking up to Obama is enough to make a grown man puke.

Right. I don't get why Rooney would be an Obama worshiper. Doesn't he get that Obama is out to destroy wealth?

The elder Mr. Rooney was an old fashioned guy. I have my doubts that he would be an Obama fan. And Mr. Rooney knew how to build and manage a great football team.

By the way, as you know, LC Greenwood passed away a few days ago. I was just thinking that the formidable Steeler defense of the 1970s of which Greenwood was a member, was called the Steel Curtain. Today's Steeler defense is more like a shower curtain.

All those old players were men. Unlike the criminals who play the game now.
Whats sad is that Chuck Noll pretty much vanished from the scene.

Just speculation on my part, but...I think Noll left when he did because the game was changing. Instead of men, he was getting has beens, never wases, and primadonnas. The younger generation didn’t want to play because they enjoyed playing. They just wanted to make big bucks. And once they started making big money, they would slack off. They didn’t respond to Noll’s style of coaching. He also couldn’t count on support from the owner anymore. The owners invested big money in these layabouts. They weren’t about to cut them loose, at least not right away. So as coach, Noll would be saddled with a bunch of losers. Eventually, blame for sorry won-lost records would be placed on Noll, not the lousy players. If I were him, I would have left too. He left before his reputation was sullied.

Old Rooney held a little rally for Uhbama himself and gave him a 00 Steeler jersey, BEFORE he was president-elect. It was disgusting.

Good point. Noll had class.
When the steelers replaced him with the highly over rated Bill Cowher, I groaned.
The last season Cowher was coach he pretty much phoned it in.

Cowher wasn't the best, but I also think that anyone coming in after Noll would have been a disappointment. It's hard to replace a coach with such a stellar reputation.

And to some extent, Cowher left with an ok reputation, possibly undeserved. Tomlin has had to live up to that impossible standard. Even more so, whether we wish it didn't exist, there was more than a bit of racism greeting Tomlin when he took over. Many “fans” thought surely, he would fail because he is an *N-word*. In my view, Tomlin has done rather well with the losing team he is saddled with.

K- neck is a disgrace to the fine men who have played QB for the Niners - he's ghetto wannabe trash. Bradford might be talented enough for Canadian ball.

Okay here we go... Missed the Thursaday night game but as for the rest:

SUN, OCT 13
Cincinnati beats Buffalo. Last I checked, you still need a QB, and unless Lewis is the new Kurt Warner, it's no-go gor the Bills.

Detroit beats the Browns. Same situation as above.

KC remains unbeaten...

AP has a game for the ages and inconsistent Carolina loses.

Geno Smith continues to pull victories out of his a** and the Men of Steel fold like aluminin foil...

Philly gets it done against TB, quarter backed by whom?

Green Bay Packers beat my Ravens in B'more...

Texans rebound against St Louis. Everyone else does!

Jacksonville at Denver . C'mon, really?!

Seahawks at home? Unbeatable!

Niners over Cards.

Saints remain unbeaten, NEExposed as weak last week.

Tony Romo and the 'Boys repeat last week's performance and win handily since the Deadskins have no 'O'.

MON, OCT 14
Philip Rivers and the Bolts shock everyone, come back to life, and don't blow a 4th quarter lead, and beat the Colts. Bye: Atlanta, Miami

Re: Let's... kick it off!

Whoa, big. First let us consider... some Breaking News:

New York Daily News headline "Michael Douglas reveals he had tongue cancer instead of throat cancer"

Well, big, I was so happy to hear... Mike earlier this year defend smoking and boozing as 'not a cause' of his throat cancer when asked if that cause it:

"No, because without wanting to get too specific, this particular cancer is caused by HPV... which actually comes about from cunnilingus. I did worry if the stress caused by my son's incarceration didn't help trigger it. But yeah, it's a sexually transmitted disease that causes cancer. And if you have it, cunnilingus is also the best cure for it."

Now, before you get all teary-eyed, Mike now say he lied... he really had tongue cancer--

"Yeap, had tongue cancer, not throat. And, about the cause of my diarrhea... I can only blame Matt Damon."

Hey, Mike-- It is called... method acting!

And continuing with this New York Theme... I understand the Jersy Jints have already started designing their rings for this season--

And Eli has firmed up his wishes for the engraving... inside his ring.
