Remember its only a game, or NFL week 8
Remember it’s only a game, or NFL week 8
Every once in a while things go your way, and then something happens to remind you what’s important. I got some bad news about a very good friend I;ve known almost 30 years. Most likely he won’t be around to see the week 9 posting. Late in the summer he scored a ticket to an Eagles pre season game. He’d never been to the “Linc” and was looking forward to a typical Eagles experience. We ate beforehand at Chicky and Pete’s, did the crab fries. We found ourselves in great seats. It was just a great night. Its not so much the games themselves as it is the people we hang with while watching the games tha make the experience worthwhile. Just keep it in mind this weekend while you’re trying to beat your bud to the last pizza slice.
Not a bad week last week, again pretty sweet going 4-1 against the spread. Our season record is looking good at 18-15-2. We’re starting to move into the black. Tony Romo has his problems. It may be the end of the Cowboy’s season, and most likely the end of Wade Phillips tenure as head coach. Hey, those guys make millions for a reasons. Let’s jump into the games. Remember any loses incurred by relying on the following information is not the responsibility of me, The Mountain, Entercom Communications, Entercom Northeast, it properties or its subsidiaries.
Chiefs (-7) over Bills. Sure, some while argue Ryan Fitzpatrick has the second highest Quarterback ranking in the league. That’s not hard to do when you are playing from behind every game. I’m not impressed. We’re at the halfway point of the season and the Bills have cut their opening day starting QB and traded their star tailback. Those moves never work out. The Chiefs meanwhile are a cover machine going 7-1 ATS over their last 8 games, and 8-1 ATS their last nine games in week 8. Take the Chiefs.
Jaguars (+ 7 ½) over Cowboys. John Kitna is not the answer in Dallas. This looks to be a low scoring snooze run feast. If it’s close, I’ll take the points. Jaguars
Jets (-6) over Packers. If it weren’t for the Steelers the Jets would be the class of the conference. The Packers on the other hand look like a team that should be great but can’t figure out how. J-E-T-S, JETS!
Patriots (-5) over Vikings. Brett Favre looks old and cold, and now has a busted ankle. He just doesn’t have that big play magic anymore. At least he doesn’t need his feet to text. Patriots in a romp
Steelers (pick) over Saints. The Saints are champs who almost never cover. The Steelers are a machine! This one should be fun. Sttelers!
That’s how I see it. Enjoy the Games!
