WILDLY INACCURATE Week 4 NFL Picks

In an effort to streamline the process of writing my picks, I have decided to break this thing into two separate pieces.  The first part, this here part, I will toss all the crap, all the talk, the rhetoric, the smack talk that I toss at teams and games and players.  The second half, the bottom half will be my actual picks.   Why am I doing this?

Picks for the weeks shouldn’t take 1,500 words worth of space and take 3 hours to put together.  That’s a bunch of shit.

ON WITH THE INACCURACY.

___________________________

Did anyone see the bizarro world QB play last week?   Brady threw 4 INT’s and lost, and Eli Manning didn’t throw any, and he beat the Eagles in Philly!  It was friggin unbelievable! And great for everyone… except for my wife, the Pats fan.

I didn’t gloat, I’m a good husband.  :)

The Panthers are a decent team.  Ain’t that nice. Decent teams don’t do great things, and beating the bears would be a great thing for the Panthers.  It isn’t happening.

The Bengals were all sorts of pathetic last week, and they are going to come out hell bent to not play that bad two weeks in a row, but that doesn’t mean they have a chance of winning.  The Bills are if not the best team in the AFC they are one of the best. No way the Bengals have a chance here, even if the Bills suffer a letdown, they’re better than the Bengals.

The Lions have had a very good defense most of the year, except the first half of last weeks game against the Vikes.  I expect them to continue the strong defensive play, but the Cowboys will play well enough to score a few TD’s on them.  Won’t be enough to beat’em though.

Is anyone else not impressed with the Bucs this year?  2-1 by the grace of J.R. “Bob” Dobbs and the amazing mediocrity of the teams they’ve played so far.  Their QB Freeman has been less than great, and the Bucs run game has not lived up to expectations.

The Colts are not as bad you’d think… if you don’t think about football much.  If you do, then they suck.  The O has gotten  somewhat better, going from absolutely fucking miserable to merely sub par over the last few weeks.  The D played better last week, but that’s no guarantee they’ve turned it around.

The Jets are a better team than the one that played the Raiders last week.  But not by much. The Raiders played a great game, and beat a better team.

How do the Eagles get to be 8½ point favorites over anyone?  Explain that to me.

Are the Jaguars a professional football team?  Their offense is weaker than some division 3 college teams.  29 points in 3 games.  Poor fellas.
