NFL PICKS WEEK THREE 2016

I was 8-8 last week and John was 6-10 bringing our season long records to 17-15 and 15-17 respectively.

We both foolishly picked the Texans on Thursday, but who could've predicted Bill O'Brien to coach scared. Belichick can smell fear and O'Brien's conservative offense was right out of the 70's. What a pussy. The Texans will always be pretenders.

Here are this weeks' picks:

1.) Cincinnati Bengals (1-1)   at home  (-3.5)   vs.  Denver Broncos (2-0)

Huh?

PICK: BRONCOS

2.) Oakland Raiders (1-1)   (-1)   at   Tennessee Titans  (1-1)

The Raiders were upset at home last week and the Titans defense is stout, but the Titans offense does not have the weapons the Falcons utilized against the Raiders last week. A must win for the Raiders if they are to be taken seriously.

PICK: RAIDERS     

3.) Arizona Cardinals (1-1)   (-4)   at Buffalo Bills  (0-2)

The Grim Reaper is prepping to take Rex Ryan.

PICK: CARDINALS

4.) Baltimore Ravens  (2-0)   (-1)   at Jacksonville Jaguars  (0-2)

The Jaguars also need this win. It looks like they swallowed their own hype. If they are to be taken seriously they have to man up and win. If not, Gus Bradley is toast.

PICK: JAGUARS

5.) Miami Dolphins  (0-2)  at home  (-9.5)   vs.  Cleveland Browns  (0-2)

The Browns are on their third QB and we're only in week three. Rookie QB Cody Kessler starts today. I hate taking the Dolphins, but even Core Coleman is out for the Browns.

PICK: DOLPHINS 

6.) New York Giants  (2-0)  at home  (-3)   vs.  Washington Redskins  (0-2)  

The Redskins have plenty of targets and Kirk Cousins can't shoot straight.

PICK: GIANTS

7.) Green Bay Packers  (1-1)   at  home   (-7)  vs. Detroit Lions  (1-1)

I don't like the points or the Lions on the road, but the Packers haven't been lighting it up, and Stafford has been spreading the ball around effectively. The Packers defense does not inspire.

PICK: LION TO COVER

8.) Carolina Panthers  (1-1)   at home  (-7)     vs.  Minnesota Vikings  (2-0)

Sam Bradford should be praised for his performance last Sunday night and Mike Zimmer can dial up a defense, but so can Ron Riviera. Cam is obviously the difference.

PICK: PANTHERS

10.)  Seattle Seahawks  (1-1)    at home  (-9.5)   vs.  San Francisco  49ers  (1-1)

Ugh. The Seahawks have been been awful, but I can't take the points. You BETTER show up Russell Wilson.

PICK: SEAHAWKS (reluctantly)

11.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers  (1-1)   at home  (-4)  vs. Los Angeles Rams  (1-1)

The Rams haven't scored a TD and the Bucs have too many weapons.

PICK: BUCCANEERS

12.) Pittsburgh Steelers  (2-0)   (-3.5)   at  Philadelphia  Eagles  (2-0)

If the Eagles win this game Wentzmania will reach a fever pitch. However, the Steelers have far too many weapons and are the better team. 

PICK: STEELERS

13.) Kansas City Chiefs  (1-1)   at home   (-3)   vs.   New York Jets  (1-1)

Great matchup. Too many points.

PICK: JETS TO COVER

14.) Indianapolis Colts  (0-2)  at  home  (-1.5)   vs.  San Diego Chargers  (1-1)

No Keenan Allen or Danny Woodhead vs. No Colts defense, no balanced offense and a porous offensive line that can't protect Andrew Luck.

PICK: CHARGERS

15.)  Dallas Cowboys  (1-1)  At  home  (-6.5)  vs.  Chicago Bears  (0-2)

ROFL.

PICK: COWBOYS

16.) New Orleans  Saints  (0-2)  at home  (-2.5)  vs. Atlanta Falcons  (1-1)

Whose defense is worse?

PICK: SAINTS

NFL PICKS WEEK TWO 2016

We were both 9-7 last week against the points and had the JETS on Thursday.

Here are this weeks' picks:

1.) Detroit Lions  (1-0)   at home   (-6)   vs. Tennessee Titans  (0-1)

Matt Stafford looks like a different QB and the Titans don't have enough yet.

PICK: LIONS

2.) Houston Texans  (1-0)  at home  (-1.5)   vs.  Kansas City Chiefs   (1-0)

The best match up of the week and the most intriguing. The Chiefs are building on something special and I don't trust Osweiller.

PICK: CHIEFS

3.) New England Patriots   (1-0)   at home  (-6.5)  vs.  Miami Dolphins  (0-1)

Until I see otherwise I'm not motivated to pick against the PATS.

PICK: PATRIOTS 

4.) Baltimore Ravens  (1-0)   (-5.5)  at  Cleveland Browns   (0-1)

I'm tempted to take the points and with Josh McCown at QB this may be the upset of the week, but I have to see more from the Browns before I roll the dice.

PICK: RAVENS

5.) Pittsburgh Steelers  (1-0)   at home   (-3)   vs.  Cincinnati Bengals  (1-0) 

 The Bengals have fewer weapons and the Steelers step up for this game.

PICK: STEELERS

6.)  Washington Redskins  (0-1)   at home   (-3)   vs.  Dallas Cowboys   (0-1)

Too many points in this rivalry.

PICK: COWBOYS

7.)  New York Giants   (1-0)   at  home   (-4)  vs.  New Orleans Saints  (0-1)

Start Eli in your Fantasy Fantasy League.

PICK: GIANTS

8.) Carolina Panthers  (0-1)   at home  (-13.5)  vs.  San Francisco  49ers  (0-1)

The Panthers are not the Ram and after a big Monday Night win, the Niners traveling across country is just a bad combination, no matter the points.

PICK: PANTHERS        

9.) Arizona Cardinals  (0-1)  at home  (-7)  vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers  (1-0)

The Bucs are for real and too many points.

PICK: BUCS TO COVER

10.) Seattle Seahawks  (1-0)   (-6)   at  Los Angeles  Rams  (0-1)

The Seahawks are off to a slow start and the Rams play them tough.

PICK: RAMS TO COVER

11.) Denver Broncos  (1-0)   at home  (-6.5)  vs.  Indianapolis Colts  (0-1)    

I expect CJ Anderson will run wild and I hate the points with Luck in the dog position, but for now I take the champs.

PICK: BRONCOS

12.) Oakland  Raiders  (1-0)   at home  (-4)   vs.  Atlanta Falcons  (0-1)

Falcons are toast.

PICK: RAIDERS

13.) San Diego Chargers  (0-1)  at home  (-3)  vs.  Jacksonville Jaguars  (0-1)

The Bolts are snake bit.

PICK: JAGUARS

14.) Green Bay Packers  (1-0)  (-2)  at  Minnesota Vikings  (1-0)

Sam Bradford vs. Aaron Rodgers. Do the math.

PICK: Packers

15.) Chicago Bears  (0-1) at home  (-3)  vs. Philadelphia Eagles  (1-0)

Jay Cutler vs. Carson Wentz. Forget the math. Cutler sucks.

PICK: EAGLES

NFL PICKS WEEK ONE 2016

Well, finally Football is Back! It seemed to sneak up on me. One more season of picks with dinner on the line. The week one picks are: 

1.)  Atlanta Falcons    at home   (-2.5)   vs.  the  Tampa Bay Buccaneers   
  
 The Falcons don't seem to have improved in the off season and this young Bucs squad is just one year older but better. Devonta Freeman is a legit star in the running to balance Julio Jones in the passing game. However, their offensive line is sub par. Expect Mike Evans to have a big day and look for new starting TE, Cameron Brate in the red zone.

PREDICTION: BUCCANEERS

2.) Minnesota Vikings   (-2.5)  at  Tennessee Titans

Everybody is excited about the Titans fielding a better team on both sides. They have a young, physical OL, a stacked backfield and a Head Coach who knows how to coach up Mariota. However, I expect the Vikings will rally in the wake of Bridgewater's injury.

 PREDICTION: VIKINGS

3.) Philadelphia Eagles   at home   (-3.5)   vs.   Cleveland Browns

Is it a good idea to start Carson Wentz? We're going to find out and they better be right. The Browns look like they are headed in the right direction, but it's a long road ahead.

PREDICTION: EAGLES

4.) Cincinnati Bengals   (-2.5)   at   New York Jets

Both teams need a win to start the season, but a strong home dog in week one? NAH.

PREDICTION: JETS

5.) New Orleans Saints  at  home   (-1.5)  vs  Oakland Raiders

The Saints will score a lot of points but they will give up a lot more.

PREDICTION: RAIDERS    

6.) Kansas City Chiefs   at home   (-6.5)   vs.  San Diego Chargers  

The Chiefs are stacked and ready to roll.

PREDICTION:  CHIEFS

7.) Baltimore Ravens   at  home  (-3)   vs.  Buffalo Bills

Neither of these teams impresses me, so I'll go with my gut.

PREDICTION: BILLS

8.)  Houston Texans   at  home  (-8)   vs.  Chicago Bears

I'm not big on the Texans but the Bears are atrocious.

PREDICTION: TEXANS

9.) Green Bay Packers   (-5.5)   at  Jacksonville Jaguars   

Both teams neeed to shoe me something. The Jags need to demonstrate they really are a team to be reckoned with. Winning at home against a perennial contender like the Packers would be a good first start. Oh, and the points are too high.

PREDICTION: JAGUARS TO COVER

10.) Seattle Seahawks  at home  (-10.5)  vs.  Miami Dolphins

Dolphins suck.

PREDICTION: SEAHAWKS

11.) Dallas Cowboys   at home  (PK)   vs.  New York Giants

Eli Manning versus Dak Prescott? Ill take Eli.

PREDICTION: GIANTS

12.)  Indianapolis Colts   at home  (-3)   vs. Detroit Lions

The Lions never fail to disappoint.

PREDICTION:  COLTS

13.)  Arizona Cardinals  at  home   (-7)   vs.  New England Patriots

No Brady. No Gronk. Do the math.

PREDICTION: CARDINALS

14.) Pittsburgh Steelers   (-3)  at  Washigton Redskins  

Flip a coin.

PREDICTION: STEELERS

15.)  Los Angeles Rams  (-2.5)  at San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers are the worst team in football and Chip Kelly can have them.

PREDICTION: RAMS.

Kim Davis and the "Rule of Law"

So, Kim Davis, an employee of the State of Kentucky refused to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. Just like employees of Hobby Lobby cannot compel it to provide services it finds objectionable so too a government employee cannot alter the terms of their employment and refuse to perform their duties as required by law.

 If the terms of employment as expanded by the SCOTUS regarding same sex marriage so profoundly offends her values then she ought to do the honourable thing and resign. Like Hobby Lobby employees, her employment is not a right. Kim Davis objections may be sound in reaction to a decision that invented a right out of thin air. That is to say that marriage is not a RIGHT for ANYONE. However, a decision has been made and she was correctly held in contempt of court. It is not as Mike Huckabee demagogically declared a "war on Christianity".

 My objection is directed towards those who cite the "rule of Law" and its needing to be enforced. For those who recite this I must ask whether you would support the DEA shutting down dispensers of pot in California and Colorado? It's still illegal under federal law which has supremacy over state law. Will you now demand they arrest the proprietors? If not, why not?

 How about sanctuary cities and the rule of law?

So, as Kim Davis rots in jail go right ahead and light up a joint with an illegal immigrant and celebrate the "rule of law". After all we only care about the law when it's in line with our politics.
