Evil NFL Week 12

Panthers2014 Season: Week 12

For those of you thinking, “Hey he didn’t post for weeks 10 and 11!” please get a life, you deserve better than to wonder what I’m thinking about football. Bottom line is weeks 9 through 11 sucked. There was one good bet flagged, that the New England Indianapolis game would go under. It didn’t. Apparently hospitals are bad luck for football.

But for this week there is another good bet. Unless you’re a Green Bay fan… Minnesota will cover the spread by actually beating Green Bay.

My take: Continue reading

Springs’s 2014 NFL Week 9

redskins22014 Season: Week 8

Well it was an interesting week. I like winning more than I lost too. I finished the week with a 60% win ratio and that raised my season win ratio to 56%. Yeah me.

There were a few games I’m honestly glad I lost.

I like Green Bay, they’re a good team with a great history. How can you not like the team who represents the blue-collar workers of America? But to be honest, I much prefer New Orleans. The years and years of being the underdogs, the fight and fortitude to find success when Naw’leans needed the most. I love that heart. So even though I picked the Packers last week to win. I’m so glad they didn’t!

Then there’s my Skins! Woohoo. Before I expanded my favorites, the only team who had my backing were, and are, Washington. Well I take that back. I always had 2 favorites; the Skins and whoever played against Dallas! So when Monday night came and my Skins were playing in Dallas, I mean really..who thought they were going win? I say we bench RGIII and keep Colt!

So here’s how my week turned out. Continue reading

Evil NFL Week 8

Panthers2014 Season: Week 8

Week 7 was great! Got 11 picks and no true failures.

Oddly the only game I nailed was the game in Indianapolis, mostly thanks to Cincinnati not bothering to be there.

There are, of course, no good bets this week, however. Though there are a few games that I’m looking forward to seeing.

My take: Continue reading

Springs’s 2014 NFL Week 8

Eagles2014 Season: Week 8

Thursday’s game between San Diego and Denver is already into the 1st quarter, so there’s not a lot of time for analysis. But I think Peyton has this game. There are a couple of games I’m seriously taking a guess with. Baltimore and Cincinnati being one of those. Going with the Bengals there.

Miami and Jacksonville; the battle for Florida. I dunno, the way the Dolphins have been playing this season. I think they’re going to take Tampa Bay.

And I have to admit I’m picking the Eagles out of loyalty to the man-child. He’s a Philly fan so go Eagles!

Here’s the rest of my picks this week. Continue reading

NFL Week 7

Panthers2014 Season: Week 7

Week 6 blew chunks, except for the good bet I missed. I really have to start paying attention to the numbers, the under bet in Cleveland was a good one and I called it right.

I nailed the Cleveland game and the Oakland game.

For True Failures, you should get some popcorn, there was the Houston game, the Tampa game, Minnesota, Miami, and finally Seattle. Seattle losing to Dallas in Seattle should lead the Comeon! Man! segment…

There are, of course, no good bets this week. I checked twice this time.

My take: Continue reading

Springs’s 2014 NFL Week 7

Titans2014 Season: Week 6

What a great week! I made it through with 12 wins. Ok one of those is a Tie; so Cincinnati didn’t lose and I’m counting it as a win. San Diego is on top of their division, so I’m not really surprised I lost that pick. But come on; Oakland did turn it into a pretty good game.

The two surprises of the week for me, Atlanta lost to Chicago at home. Now I know the Bears aren’t a push over, but the Falcons playing at home?! How did they not show up for that game?!

Of my 3 losses, the most surprising was Dallas beating Seattle. Again, at home for the Seahawks? Say what? How did that happen? The way Romo has been playing all year, he suddenly decided to show up and play? Well that’s just not right.

Regardless I had a good week and the result was an 80% win ratio for the week and 54% for the season. Better than last week. So here’s my Week 6 results. Continue reading

NFL Week 6

Panthers2014 Season: Week 6

Week 5 was awesome, I called 13 games right.

I nailed the Giants, San Fran and the San Diego game. Of all those it appears the worst I did was figure on the Jets scoring at least some points.

For True Failures the Tennessee game comes in. I wasn’t off much, just enough to be wrong about the pick, bet and over under. Then Buffalo. Never bet on a B team.

There are, of course, no good bets this week. Where is Carville when you need him. It’s the economy stupid!

ISIL says they aren’t going to let their children study math. So I know how to beat them, become arms dealers. Sell them a ten pack of Nerf darts and tell them it’s 500,000 rounds. Yep… Just can’t muster up any fear of these whack jobs.

Spring’s 2014 NFL Week 6

redskins22014 Season: Week 6 Picks

We continue football in the twilight zone and the full moon, though it’s waning, is still impacting the tides. So I’m going to forgo my usual analysis and pick from the gut. We’ll see how this works. I’m not giving this a lot of credence with the stressing week, month, how about year! we’ve had.

So here we go.
I think I’m ok with tonight’s pick. Sunday? I dunno; it’s the twilight zone in football! Continue reading
