This week’s select picks …
Eagles laying 6.5 to the Colts. Wentz is back. Luck is back. The media’s dream matchup for big white QBs. A neck-bearded, Rainman-like character and a mouthbreather with his eyes 14 inches apart going head to head. The Eagles aren’t starting the season 1-2. Bounce back game.
Dolphins laying 3 points to the Raiders. Lay the points. Why did Jon Gruden return? Did he watch his younger brother coach for several years and decide … you think you can be more of an overrated, blowhard buffoon of a coach than I can? I’ll show you!
And he showed him this week. Trumped his bro’. After seeing his defense get shredded repeatedly over the past few weeks, QBs standing back in the pocket like they are drug dealers on the corner – this after trading away the NFL’s best defensive player and his only pass rusher, he has the gall to come to a press conference and say “we gotta do something to get more pressure.” He then said “great pass rushers are hard to find. It’s hard to find a good one.”
