Three Amigos

  • NFL quarterbacks have continued to rewrite the record books in recent years, perhaps none as spectacularly as Green Bay’s [Aaron] Rodgers and New Orleans’ [Drew] Brees. Rodgers’ career passer rating (104.9) is nearly 10 points higher than No. 2 [Steve] Young (96.8), No. 3 [Tom] Brady (96.6) and No. 4 [Peyton] Manning (95.7). Rodgers also boasts the lowest INT rate (1.7%) and best TD-INT ratio (3.7 to 1) in history.”
  • Richard Dawkins gets weird as motherfucking shit right here (wait for the payoff 5 minutes in, it’s worth it).
  • This is creepy and annoying, re: the Obamacare rollout: “‘If I’m uninsured and it’s October, I won’t be able to go anywhere without escaping a message,’ John Gilbert, who leads Enroll America’s field operations, told supporters in a Thursday night presentation. ‘I turn on my TV and there’s an ad. I go on the Internet and there’s another ad. Someone shows up at my door to talk about it. I go to church and my pastor is talking about it.'” —————- Hey! Go fuck yourself, Gilbert.

The Saints-Vikings matchup is in the history books already, and although I predicted the correct outcome on Twitter, my expectations for a high-scoring affair were way off. Ah well.

Anyway, here’s the rest of my Week 1 picks.

Philadelphia 29, Green Bay 27 — The Pack is 0-9 in Philadelphia since 1962. Some trends are nigh-permanent.

Buffalo 15, Miami 9– The Bills, though awful, are 5-1 in their last six home games vs. the Dolphins.

Tennessee 19, Oakland 17 — Tennessee is 7-1 in its last eight home games vs. the Raiders.

New England 28, Cincinnati 26 — The Bengals have gone 1-6 in their last seven games vs. the Patriots.

Chicago 27, Detroit 25 — The Lions haven’t won a game on grass in their last 10 tries.

Carolina 25, New York Giants 19 — Here’s a juicy nugget: the Giants are 2-4 in their last six home games. Yikes.

Pittsburgh 28, Atlanta 25 — Pittsburgh is 12-2 in its last 14 home games and Atlanta has a putrid 8-17 record in its last 25 road games.

Cleveland 25, Tampa Bay 15 — Tampa Bay’s record in its last 20 games? 3-17. ’nuff said.

Jacksonville 29, Denver 24 — The Jags have won five of their last seven home games and are 4-1 in their last five games against Denver. I smell a Jacksonville “W.”

Houston 36, Indianapolis 21 — The Texans are a surprising 14-6 in their last 20 home games.

Arizona 16, St. Louis 9 — No stats or trends necessary. St Louis is simply horrible.

San Francisco 39, Seattle 25 — Don’t be shocked if the Seahawks squeak out a win here. They are 10-4 in their last 14 games vs. the 49ers.

Dallas 45, Washington 23 — The Redskins are 2-8 in their last 10 divisional games.

Baltimore 28, New York Jets 19 — Baltimore has beaten the Jets five straight times. That total will extend to six.

San Diego 36, Kansas City 18 — San Diego is undefeated in its last five road games. And the Chiefs are about to become roadkill.

Ballin’ With the Best

Anyone interested in joining the Fantasy Football League I commission?

I request that only serious fantasy ballers throw their hat in the ring. We’ve got a veteran bunch of peckerwoods who can write florid poetry about Josh Cribbs, if necessary. It’s that bad-ass.

Please leave a comment stating your qualifications, or e-mail me.

We typically request a $25 entry fee, which can be sent via PayPal or snail mail.
