First game of the NFL season and Commissioner Roger Goodell was a no-show. Punk. When the going gets tough, Goodell goes into hiding. They should fire him.
During the Patriots-Steelers game, Al Michaels was continuously talking in the last minute about the gambling line When the Steelers scored that late TD., literally $100 million changed hands. So why is everyone whining about Michaels bringing it up? EVERYONE knows the NFL thrives on gambling, and the hypocritical “outrage” makes me chuckle. Fantasy football is gambling and the NFL network has a million leagues. Come on.
The NFL claims it cares about player safety. Then, in week 1, Adam Jones rips the helmet off receiver Amari Cooper. Then he grabs Cooper by both ears and slams his head onto his helmet. The league doesn’t suspend Jones. What?
This week’s select picks:
Pats 24, Bills 17. Bills Coach Rex Ryan is infatuated with “talking” about the Patriots. The Patriots are infatuated with winning.
Panthers 19, Texans 13. Panther QB Cam Newton is a dumbass for signing that contract extension. His GM can’t seem to find talent to surround him with. Meanwhile, the Texans are yet another team in the midst of a QB controversy with no decent QB. Texan Coach Bill O’Brien is trying to keep his QB selection a “secret” this week. Translation: IF you are keeping your QB selection a secret it’s because you don’t have a decent QB, and it won’t help you one bit to hide it.
Titans 23 Browns 17. The Browns defense doesn’t look as good as people expected. Meanwhile, Johnny Jackass is expected to start for them – which means they’ll lose.
Vikings 24, Lions 20. Viking QB Tedy Bridgewater looked horrible. HORRIBLE last week, but I expect him to bounce back. RB Adrian Peterson needs another helping of humble pie, ‘cause the last piece wasn’t big enough.
Saints 38, Bucs 20. Saint WR Brandin Cooks. will look like the rising star he is.
Falcons 27 Giants 23. If there is a QB who is overrated it is Matty Puddle. I don’t see what people love about him. oh yeah, he is 6’4” and … white. Giants falling apart already under Tom Coughlin. They completely choked that Cowboys game away last week with befuddled clock management and a veteran QB who doesn’t understand anything about in-game strategy. He literally told his RB NOT to score last week, which would have made it a two-possession game. What was he afraid of, the time-tested and always successful score, onside kick and score strategy in the final two minutes?
Steelers 23, Niners 22. When you look at the Niners coach on the sidelines he DOESN’T LOOK LIKE AN NFL COACH. He looks like a manager at Golden Corral or something. Like a double for the actor in Paul Blart Mall Cop.
Ravens 23 Raiders 12. I saw people drafting Raider WR Amari Cooper in their fantasy leagues and to me, drafting a WR on a team with no QB is like watching the Price is Right without sticking around for the showcase showdown … what is the point?
By the way, the best Raider player is no longer their kicker Janikowski, but their punter King.
Eagles 27, Cowboys 20. Can we stop dogging Dallas QB Tony Romo? \If he gets to a Super Bowl with his stats the experts will completely change their tune. Loss of WR Dez Bryant to injury will HURT big time. Eagles pull off win at home while Cowboys adjust to life without Dez.
Packers 31, Seahawks 26. ‘Hawks start off 0-2. LOVE IT. Come on Aaron Rodgers. Finish this game off, unlike last year’s playoff game. I keep asking people how the ‘Hawks defense is supposed to be better this year (like I hear people saying) when they keep losing more depth all the time? Showed last week.
