NFL WEEK 7
Perhaps it‚Äôs my lot to go 4-4, as that seems to be the weekly result these days.¬† Another 4-4 week raises the total to 17-22 on the year.¬† Things should tighten up a bit from this week on as far as on field play goes.¬† Bye weeks and in season practice will hopefully¬† make the worst tackling in reason memory get better.¬† Let‚Äôs take a look at this week‚Äôs slate.¬† As always any losses incurred by relying on said information is not the responsibility of me, The Mountain, Entercom communications, Entercom Northeast, its properties or its subsidiaries.
JETS (-1) over Chargers.¬† Two teams that are evenly matched an in a position to turn the corner into legit contenders.¬† The line I think is a fair line.¬† Earlier in the season it was brought up to the players that they only had one 1pm east coast start this season.¬† The players all said it was such a huge disadvantage to be a west coast team and play that early.¬† Apparently in camp players only need 3-4 hours sleep so they can play video games all night, but during the season they need beddy-bye time.¬† Such is life I suppose.¬† Still any disadvantage on a close line is a huge hoop to jump through.¬† Factor in that the Jets have won 6 of the last 7 tilts against the ‚Äúbolts‚ÄĚ by at least a field goal, well that adds up to a trend.¬† As Fireman Ed goes, so do I: J-E-T-S! JETS! JETS! JETS!
LIONS (-4 ¬Ĺ) over Falcons.¬† The this week is in Detroit.¬† Those Lions need red meat.¬† Just when you think there‚Äôs a turnaround in the motor city, the Lions become a cover machine.¬† LIONS
STEELERS (-4) over Cardinals.¬† Andy Reid is the greatest coach ever!¬† He gets hack QBs to play and trades them for big picks, only to have them exposed as frauds on their new teams (Kevin Kolb, A.J. Feeley).¬† STEELERS
RAIDERS (-3 ¬Ĺ) over Chiefs.¬† ¬†Those Raiders have covered 8 in a row against divisional foes.¬† No reason ¬†to stop now.¬† Just cover baby!¬† Raiders.
PACKERS (-10) over Vikings.¬† Donnie Mac‚Äôs numbers this year weren‚Äôt that bad.¬† At least not so bad he should take a benching playing with these hacks.¬† After Adrian Peterson who else on offense can play?¬† Chris Ponder is not the magic bullet.¬† Meanwhile Aaron Rdgers is quietly putting together one of the all time great seasons any QB has ever had.¬† Packers
RAMS (-10) over Cowboys.¬† The Rams have won 6 of the last 10 against the pokes.¬† Spread wise the Pokes have only beaten 2 of their last 10 by more than a touchdown.¬† I had the Rams going 6-10 on the season, which makes them a perfect pain-in-the-Cowboys-neck team to be. ¬†RAMS
SAINTS (-14) over Colts.¬† I have never seen one team so dependent on one player as the Colts are with Payton Manning.¬† The Colts may go 0-16 this year.¬† The Saints on the other hand are really pretty good.¬† Saints here
RAVENS (-9) over Jaguars.¬† If not for the Colts, the Jags would be the worst team in the NFL.¬† And it‚Äôs almost Halloween.¬† Cover the Ravens ever more.¬† RAVENS
That's how i see it.¬† Enjoy the games!
