NFL Picks - Week 9

This week's picks dedicated to the one-and-only Randy Moss...

Why's he actin' so RAAAAAANDY?!?!?!

As for my picks I'll keep it simple and straight-forward this week...

Tampa Bay over Atlanta: Ok ok, let me explain. I don't believe that Tampa is as good as their record. BUT, they play tough (solid defense and ball-control offense) and this is a divisional game so they'll be motivated. Besides, I'm in 11th place out of 13 in my pick'em league and I need to start picking some upsets.

Buffalo over Chicago: Another upset pick this week (see last sentence from previous pick). Buffalo's been trying hard for a win this season and Chicago is not that good. Solid defensively, but just like Brett Favruh, Jay Cutler is one bad interception away from losing any game. I'm gonna take a chance on the Bills getting their first win this week at home.

New England over Cleveland: No way I'm taking Mangini over Belicheck.

Jets over Detroit: The Jets offense better put up some points this week and I think they will but I do not think this will be an easy win. Detroit has a lot of talent on offense and after their win against my Skins last week they may very well have all that talent working together now. When-and-if they do get it together, that offense will be pretty scary.

Minnesota over Arizona: With or without Mr. Dyck-Pic, the Vikings win.

Saints over Carolina: After a nice win over one of the better teams in the NFL, I may be back on the Saints bandwagon.

Miami over Baltimore: This is a dumb pick I admit. I knew that when I picked it. But again, I've gotta pick some upsets. Miami's GREAT on the road and the Ravens tend to play down to their competition from time-to-time (ie - the Bills). So this just might be an UPSET SPECIAL!

Charger over Houston: It's time for San Diego to surge. It'll be worth nothing in January when they're at home after a play-off loss but still, it's time for a Charger surge. And I think it started last week.

Giants over Seattle: The ONLY reason I'm picking the Giants is because they had a bye week to prepare. Otherwise, I'd take Seattle because they're at home (I don't think it's easy to go to Seattle and win).

Oakland over Chiefs: Oakland is surging. Laugh if you want, but they are playing well. If they're dumb enough to bench Campbell for Gradkowski right now then they deserve to lose this game.

Indy over Philly: This is going to come down to the last possession. But who better to win a game on the last possession than Peyton? And even though I'm taking Indy, I hope Vick plays well.

Packers over Dallas: I won't say anything bad about Dallas other than they're gonna lose, again.

Steelers over Bengals: This will be a prime opportunity for the Steelers to rebound from their loss in N'awlins. I say it every week, Carson Palmer is washed up. I still believe this and I'm sure by now Ocho Cinco and T-Hoe are aware as well. I'm just surprised they haven't said anything publicly yet. This is a divisional game so I expect them to play well but I can't believe that after coming off a loss the Steelers will lose a game against an obviously weak team.

For a different perspective, check out my homie Lance's picks for this week.

Anger about Messerlee. Understandable.
They need to understand this man was pushed into the offense. Cops have been getting away with killings like this for a long time. Blacks in the South know this all too well. Each time they were all confident the Blue Shield would protect them, and it did. The difference is in many IF NOT MOST of these cases they were rogue cops who the Gods tempted. They did it intentionally thinking they were "earning", knowing they would get away with it. They were the ones whom the Gods disliked, while the Messerlees of the world who get caught are being punished, feedback reserved for those the Gods have interest in keeping.
There are those in the ghetto whom are singled out, targets of the community whom everybody hates. The rogue cops in the South who are guilty of these kind of killings have been reincarnated into roles like this. It's just one of the clues the Gods offer to the community. Lucky for those preditors the ghetto has been an ignorant community, but I think that might be changing.

Of course there could be anoher possibility:::::Due to the history and resulting legacy of hatred for the Gods, since I am guarenteed a spot on the next Planet Earth I will be the original "bad seed":::The Lucifer-figure of the next reality. Unlike Christian dogma, he may just represent the solitary target of the God's ire early, a disgruntled asshole who pissed the Gods off, representing the only target of the God's ire early, the proverbial "apple" of the next reality, beginning the process which leads planets to where we are today. A crucial figure in any planet's history, he represents the "beginning of the end".

People, especially liberals give W a very hard time.
Don't forget what I say:::Everything today is both good and evil. The Gods have positioed it as such as we have become increasingly disfavored, confusing the enviornment.
Republicans and conservatives as well, only they fall more on the good side while their adversaries fall more on the evil side, quite contrary to the God's positioning.
Yes, W's evil is illustrated in the United State's efforts in Iraq, and the "Red State"r's who believe we were "earning" are among the worst of them.
If conservatives fall on the side of good, Fox News falls on the side of evil. They pander to the type of trash my brother is, the kind of trash who thinks their war mongering efforts "earn" for them and all others who think like them.
Anyways, it is positioned that W trashed the economy before he left office. Selfish it didn't happen while he was in office, granted, but economic turmoil is a motivator. It's not cancer, mind you, but many have begun praying hard because of their experinces in this event, and it says something about those affected as opposed to those sheltered from affect.
One day just as they will allow vaccines to diseases, especially AIDS, encouraging deviacy the likes which hasn't been seen since the 70s, they will allow cures for cancer, MS, COPD, alcoholism, etc.
Women's diseases will be last. Just as research into women's diseases receive the least amount of funding so is it justified their cures come last, and both for the same reason:::They have the most favor, and the Gods use their diseases as a motivator to pray and find the path. As such they get God's benefit as long as they are willing to offer it.
