Washington @ Minnesota Thursday Night NFL

Washington Redskins @ Minnesota Vikings NFL Thursday Night

We’ve been over this before and it’s even more relevant this season. Betting lines don’t mean much at all.  Those that set those lines have little more clue than you do as to who’s going to win any game at any time.  Their main drive is to make money — off anyone who’s willing to place a bet.  That being said Washington is favoured by 1.5 points — AKA — it’s anyone’s game.  Minnesota’s Peterson seems ready to bust out and tear the field up.  RG111 is improving but he’s still not quite back to his explosive play saving running the ball and laser accuracy throws of his previous season and prior to injury self.  And as much as I think that if you’re getting paid that much to play, you should suck it up and play….  that shit had to hurt.  I’m taking the Vikings tonight.

NFL WEEK 2 BREAKDOWN

Hey, I might break down … but it’s not that bad is it?  Week 2 is still anybody’s game — no one team has come out as on top of anything, not defensively, not offensively, and not any one position …there’s been some outstanding plays and players but it’s too early to suggest that there’s any kind of consistency  at all.

STRAIGHT UP RECORD SO FAR — 9 WINS & 7 LOSSES

GOING IN TO WEEK 2

NEW ENGLAND OVER THE JETS — GOT THIS ONE — IT WAS THURSDAY’S GAME

PHILLY OVER SAN DIEGO — Philly kind of had it going on agains Washington and San Diego last Monday were there but that’s about it.

BALTIMORE OVER CLEVELAND — not sure Baltimore’s that good or that Cleveland is that bad

HOUSTON OVER TENNESSEE — I’d box this if I could but I’m taking Houston @ home

INDY OVER MIAMI — I think that the Colts have more to promise than the Dolphins do

BUFFALO OVER CAROLINA — this is Buffalo’s only chance not to freaking screw me over

ST LOUIS OVER ATLANTA — I may live to regret this one

GREEN BAY OVER WASHINGTON — Washington and RG111 will have to have done a shit load of work since last Monday

KANSAS OVER DALLAS — Is Romo hurt? Can he play?  Did Kansas kick the snot out of Jax last week or is Jax just that bad?

CHICAGO OVER MINNESOTA — when in doubt go home team … or something like that

NEW ORLEANS OVER TAMPA — hoping that Tampa will hand over this game just like the served it to the Jets in Week 1

DETROIT OVER ARIZONA — if Reggie and Megatron and Stafford can get their shit show together — they should win it

OAKLAND OVER JACKSONVILLE — taking the home team over the vile visitors (aka defensive and offensive missing)

DENVER OVER THE GIANTS — The Manning showdown — NYG were awful last week and the elder Manning’s experience should give Denver an edge

SEATTLE OVER SAN FRANCISCO — this pains me to take but the Seahawks are, or have been, hard to beat at home

CINCIE OVER PITTSBURGH — they’re favored to win and the Steelers did nothing last week to make me think they’ll win this week.

NFL WEEK ONE ROUND UP …. crapshoot confirmed

WEEK 1 ROUNDUP

NEW ENGLAND barely squeaked past BUFFALO by 2 points which is fucking stunning going into it as 9-10 point favorites.   My loathing of BUFFALO remains intact.

Maybe MIAMI is going to be better on the road this year?  That remains to be seen.

KANSAS kicked the crap out of JACKSONVILLE, which begs the question, is KANSAS that good or is JAX that bad – probably a combo of the two.

THE JETS did not win that game by 1 point – TAMPA BAY gave it to them on a personal foul (a doubly stupid one at that) so my opinion of these two knucklehead teams is held in reserve till I see what the JETS do against NEW ENGLAND this Thursday Week 2.  (I hate when they put shit games on for the night games.)

TENNESSEE 16-PITTSBURGH 6.  Seriously?  Big Ben?  WTF?

COLIN, I mean, SAN FRAN over GREEN BAY 34-28 – I like SAN FRANSISCO – have for years which wasn’t easy at times – Let’s see what they do against SEATTLE Sunday night Week 2.

DALLAS over THE GIANTS 36-31 – Were Eli and the rest of the team playing in the same game on the same field at the same time?  Offense, defense?  Begs the question though if THE GIANTS were that bad and DALLAS only beat them by 5… things that make you go hmmm….

PHILLY beat WASHINGTON but much of the game was focused on whether RG111 was going to keel over.  In protecting him pre-season did they do him a service or not?  VICK haters keep on hating…

HOUSTON over SAN DIEGO  2nd game Monday night – another yawner.
