Chicago Bears Group Shower Shot…what?

Well Kudos to the team for actually putting this pic up on the Official Chicago Bears Site …

Chicago Bears in the Shower before Cleveland game

….pre-game in the shower in Cleveland

They don’t look happy or fierce. They look like a bunch of men who don’t wan’t to be holding hands in a shower.  I understand the whole rah rah geek up the team before the game thing … or the group prayer… but was there no where else to do this?  There’s a series of getting ready to beat Cleveland pics on their site and more than a few where they’re getting helped into their gear like Mom did dressing the kids for a snow day.  They’re the best. … Moms, Snow Days, and the pics. 🙂

NFL … Is this Week 5?

It’s Week 5 here.

There was some upsets last week – they upset me – we’re not going to discuss them.

Going in Week 5 @ 37-26 (Mommy’s not happy with this)

Anytime spreads are 3 and under it basically means that the “experts” don’t have a clue who’s going to win – This weeks there’s 6 games in that range including a PK – might as well toss up a coin.

That being said:

New England over Cinci – it’s like a tradition.  New England isn’t immune to getting their clock cleaned but neither is Cinci liable to beat them.

Detroit over Green Bay – yes – it’s in Green Bay but I’m taking them anyway.

Indy over Seattle – Seattle and Russell Wilson are pretty hot right now just winning their 4th in a row to start a season, something that hasn’t been achieved in 400 years or something like that.  They’ve beat some crap teams to do so.

Miami over Baltimore – Miami at home.

New Orleans over Chicago – Chicago does have a good defensive line but New Orleans’ is better.

New York Giants over Philly – Between these 2 teams and the 8 games they’ve played between them – there’s been 1 win and that went to Philly.  The Giants can have this one … if they want it bad enough

Tennessee over Kansas – 2 not so good teams – as above – someone’s gonna have to win … or they could tie I suppose.

St. Louis over Jacksonville – Odds makers have give St. Louis a big spread on this one but I wouldn’t pay too much attention to it.  All things considered, they should win.

Arizona over Carolina – Just giving it to them on a home field advantage – sometimes you can’t overthink these things.

Denver over Dallas – need I explain this?

San Francisco over Houston – every week Kaepernick has more to prove – he’s kind of doing it but he needs to do it in a bigger way … on the field.

San Diego over Oakland – San Diego scores and lets points in – working in their favor is a low scoring Oakland team.

New York Jets over Atlanta – in Atlanta – sometimes you just have to live dangerously.

NFL WEEK 3 Round up

It’s a little round up because a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do.  Like laundry and reading the sports page…

Confirmation that I should continue to despise Buffalo — not picking them status returns

Eli — Good Lord Man — get it done out there.

Total wins = 9 for Week 3 so I’m 30-18 going in to Week 4

WEEK 3 NFL ….LET’S GO HARD

I don’t mean me of course – I mean the teams – Let’s go harder…as in throw it, catch it, score with it.

Taking:

NY Giants over Carolina – both are 0-3 and someone’s gotta win.

Tennessee over San Diego – San Diego burned me last week by having the audacity to beat Philly.  As a true Woman, I tend not to forget these things.

Minnesota over Cleveland – Home team – rocking the purple and gold.

New England over Tampa – NE is 2-0, Tampa is 0-2. Doubtful that NE is going to give it up to the Buccaneers in their own backyard.

Houston over Baltimore – Home team advantage and nothing more.

Dallas over St. Louis – Come on Tony Romo, I’m giving you one more chance at home. Please don’t fuck it up.

New Orleans over Arizona – New Orleans is marginally better at home than away.  Arizona is better at home.  Simple math.

Washington over Detroit – Hoping hoping hoping that RG111 and his team are gonna get their act together.  Washington’s one of my old time all time fave teams and I want it to stay that way. If I have to dump you it’s gonna be like dumping that guy that’s really good in bed … but he’s still gotta go.

Cincinnati over Green Bay – Green Bay scores a lot but they give up a lot of points.  Cinci’s ability to stop people holding the brown oblong ball appears to be fairly solid.Time will tell.

Miami over Atlanta – You ask me, why?  I ask you, why not?

San Fran over Indy – San Fran is heavily favored and they are good at home.  Can they cover?  Maybe, maybe not, but they sure as shit can win.

Seattle over Jacksonville – Honestly – your family dog could pick this one.

Buffalo over the Jets – I don’t like this game – I don’t like it at all.

Chicago over Pittsburgh – Pittsburgh is at home and days gone by it’d be a sure bet to take them.  This season, not so much.

Denver over Oakland – Peyton doesn’t like to lose – it seems to take him a quarter or two to get going but when he does… Oakland should just get out of the way.

I’ll be cooking burgers on the grill in that waffly time frame between the early and late games.  Dress them yourselves and get your own liquid refreshments, I haven’t the time. Fortunately the Sunday Night Game is not one that’s grabbing me because you don’t watch every season of Dexter to miss or delay the Final Show of all time ever.  It better be good.

Katy Perry’s “Roar” not loud enough for the Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals’ new anthem lasted one week. The Bengals are dumping Katy Perry‘s “Roar” after unveiling the song as the team’s pregame, in-game and postgame song, according to The Wall Street Journal. The change comes after fans complained about the new anthem. “I think some fans proved that there’s an expectation that when the team takes the field, there should be more of a hard-rock, classic-rock song and I know that’s what we’re going to do this game,” the Bengals’ director of sales and public affairs, Jeff Berding, said. “Katy Perry is not going to be the last song you hear before the team takes the field.”

It’s a little soft for the NFL …

Jets @ New England and an eyebrow distraction

Thursday Thursday Thursday — please give me something to watch.  Jets @ New England — New England  between -11/-12 points — Straight up I’m going with New England  because … well just because.  Hoping they’ll be extra pissed with their dismal (but winning) show against Buffalo in Week 1.

Not that interested in this game?  Then take a look at these two  below — weird isn’t it?

Eyebrow to Eyebrow

Eyebrow to Eyebrow

The loser of Sunday’s game originally supposed to shave off an eyebrow — now word is that it’s a joke done only for the Madden Football Game …. game.

I think they should do it — people shave their whole heads for cancer — this is just an eyebrow — joke or not.

 

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.
