After the last two weeks... can you blame me?
Betting lines: NO!!!
I’m going to go with the tunas over beefaloes...rest of the picks later
How bad must the Jets be that my beloved browns are thought to even have a chance of beating them?
Thursday Evening Feetball is over, so you have plenty of time, big.
Take it as easy as you want to, buddy. Just know that Jerra Jones didn’t look too happy when he choppered away from att stadium, Sunday evening.
If I had a fantasy team, I’d start Kirk Cousins as my QB.
Playoffs: SF has been humiliated the last couple times they’ve played in SEA; not beating them there this year in the playoffs.
Could KC, SD and BAL be sleepers in the AFC? I HATE BAL, so hopefully not. ABB - Anyone But Baltimore for me.
New stadium in MN/”I say good riddance Metrodome.”: Right, only way to legally steal public money is to pretend the money will be recouped via trade shows and other things in addition to NFL games. If the current weather patterns hold up, the next SB in NJ will be a frigid disaster, thus ending the “outside cold weather SB” experiment stupidity. IIRC, the last “outdoor cold weather SB” was in MN ironically.
“SB will be SEA versus DEN in a snowstorm. Mannings legacy is on the line. If he finishes with 1 SB (over Rex Grossman) and Rory Culkin finishes with 2 over the Pats, ouch.”
Rory Culkin - OUCH!!!
“CAR is the competition for SEA.”
“Candlestick park is also going bye bye.”
Khent was with me and the g/f when we went to SF a few years ago; he wanted to rub his bare irma on the same field where Joe “THE GREATEST QB EVER” Montana ran, sweat, rolled around and spit. Alas, a visit there was vetoed by the g/f on the grounds that we went to see the Red Sox in OAK on said trip and she had no interest in going to Candlestick Park, especially for lewd activities. Gadzooks.
“Levis Stadium (tagline The Field of Jeans, fail) in Santa Clara will be the new home of the niners.”
Bring back "The Met".
But...but...the chardonnay would be served too cold...
I believe it was Muhammad Ali who once said “If you even dream of beating me, you better wake up and apologize”!
So we must be to a few Saturday games, last two weekends of the year, usually works that way.
I AM WRONG, looks like NO SATURDAY GAMES
What do you mean 'IF' you had a fantasy team? You really don't have one? What are you, a communist or somethin'?
(Note that I did not say anything about Washington actually beating anyone. If the Redskins are ahead at the end of the game, it will only be due to a gift offered up by Tony Choke-mo and the Dallas coaching staff.)
Yes, because only the Cowboys’ coaches could stop handing the ball off to a guy who had 100 yards rushing at halftime, with a 23-point lead.
I mean, really?? How stupid is that?
Cassius Clay certainly had a way with words!
Gaseous Cassius, as he was known at the time.
Somehow, the Steelers are still mathematically alive. That loss to Miami a couple of weeks ago really looms large now, as I really don’t want to think of the Rube Goldbergian mechanism that’d have to fall into place for them to vault over BAL, MIA, and SD.
In any event I have to echo the upthread sentiment of “anyone but Baltimore” for that #6 AFC spot.
What?? Not Toni Romo?
Not so much a reflection on Romo,as it is the Cowboys’ defense(less).
I taking raiders over Chargers
49ers over Dirty birds
Thank you for enlightening me on this topic!
And where did this guy come from?
Flippers over the Buffarillas
Bengays over the Bi-queens
Cigar Guys over the Dolts
Lambs over Buginears
Hershey Trails over the Contrails
Cowbots over the the Dreadskins (here we go again?)
Gay German Tanks over the East Houston Devils
Stoned Ponies over the West New Orleans Texicans.
Lyers over the Midgets
Seachickens over the Redhats
Fudgepackers over the Stealers
Zappers over the Gayders
Crows over the Cheatriots
Beagles over the Koalas
Phonywhiners over the Edsels
Well, dude, as I recall, we were playing spin... the pizza--
I took a hit off that new Tesla... E-Cigarette--
Then I was giving Zoidberg... a shocking back rub!
I looked around and I was on... TV!
I seem to be co-starring in "Orange... the New Black" on Netflix--
I started feeling split... down the middle!
I ran to the bathroom to barf, but it was... occupied!
I then felt very, very tiny... and alone!
Then-- Then NOT... ALONE--
NOT ALONE... AT ALL!
After a flash of white, big and I were crashing... a funeral.
My head then seem to balloon up... in size!
Someone handed me a cigarette but it made me fell even more... strange and very hot--
I asked the tattooed guy to get me some ice... from that weird ice bucket--
Then a very comely trashcan... started coming on to me--
Then someone pushed my button... and it all went to... black!
So, to wrap up, I don't care who this kid... is--
I want to know who the hell is this... kid's father?
If the shoe fits!!
R2!! How could you? You told me there was no one else!
|NFC SEED #3 & #4||PHIL||DAL||DET||CHI|
|NFC WILDCARD, ETC||CAR||SAN FRAN||ARIZ|
Beepity boop bop whiss... zingity sop sop clank!
Well, you heard it, C3... right from the horse's mouth.
Only two games left in the regular season. Lot of games with playoff repercussions this weekend. So here we go!
Miami beats Buffalo to keep the Fish’ hopes alive.
Vikings continue their surprising play and top the Bungles.
KC throttles the fading Colts.
TB beats the Lambs.
Browns over the woeful Jets.
The Cowboys can’t possibly lose to the ‘Skins. Can they? Cowboys.
Carolina wins the rematch against the Saints.
Titans over the Jags.
Broncos over the Titans.
Lions rebound against Eli and the Jints.
Seattle unbeatable at home, as the Cards discover.
Green Bay over Big Ben.
How could San Diego beat the Broncos in Denver and then lose to Oakland at home? They can’t. Bolts!
Ravens - Pats. This will go down to the last play. I give the Ravens the edge because they are at home.
Reborn Bears keep winning.
Seven-Squareds beat the hapless Falcons.
Jason Garrett should be fired for losing that game, plain and simple.

The Bangels walk like an Egyptian for a win over the Vikingos
Los Caciques (Chiefs) of Kansas City
Packers (Pacadores I think)
Osos de Chicago
When it snows ain't it thrilling? Though your nose gets a chilling We'll frolic and play the Eskimo way Walking in the winter wonderland
Amen to that.
Sure 'nuff, none of these teams are bringing up the rear regarding cheerleaders
|AFC WILDCARD||MIAMI||JETS||BALT||PITT||CINCY||SAN DIEGO|
PITT .8-8...... NYJ 8-8...... SD 8-8
BALT 8-8.... MIA 8-8
PITT HAS tie over BAL and NYJ has tie over MIA.
PITT gets the 3-way tie PITT-NYJ-SD. (or the 2-way vs NYJ)
BALT HAS common over INDY (if they win DIV)
MIA has h2h and conf over INDY (if they win DIV)
both can still get a bye #2 seed.
playoff odds for each team, in one man’s opinion.
“Eagles coach Chip Kelly may be able to rest key players like QB Nick Foles on Sunday night if the Cowboys win earlier in the day.
Nobody ever has accused the NFL of failing to make a profit.
But you can’t help wonder if the league finally has gone too far and maximized television exposure over competitive integrity. The decision to flex the Bears-Eagles game to NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” comes with unintended consequences that could include the Lions’ chances of making the playoffs.
If the Cowboys beat the host Redskins earlier in the day, the Eagles gain nothing with a victory over the Bears. Is there a scenario in which they could treat the game as a sort of golden off week and rest key players for the season finale against the Cowboys that will determine the NFC East division winner?
If that were to happen, the Lions conceivably could beat the visiting Giants, but effectively be eliminated from the playoffs if the Packers beat the visiting Steelers and the Bears are handed a victory in Philadelphia.”
ME: IF detroit loses, and GB wins ... the game means almost nothing to CHI. Well, this article does not consider seeding for #3 and #4 seeds.
