PIGSKIN 2014: Football Sunday ~ Week Seven


Football Sunday
Week Seven


Week 6:  8-4-1
Overall Record:  38-26-2
Schmear of the Week:  2-3
BAGELS in the Basket:  +7

Coin Toss:
  • Has anyone watched the FXFL yet?  The Brooklyn Bolts hosted the first pro football game in the Borough since the Brooklyn Dodgers/Brooklyn Tigers last played in the NFL 70 years ago at Ebbets Field.
1st and 10:
  • All eyes on the Cowboys.
2nd and Short:
  • How shameless was Daniel Snyder for hosting the president of Navajo Nation in his owner's suite?  Brilliant!
No Gain:
  • There is something very suspicious about the Jets acquisition of Percy Harvin from Seattle.  Why the hell would the Seahawks make this trade in mid-season?  Answer?  Pick a source - he became a clubhouse cancer.  New GM - same old Jets though.
  • Read this USA Today article: NFL Refs ruining games with absurd penalties.

Week Seven:
(Friday Line ~ NYDN)

COWBOYS -6 1/2 (Giants)
The Giants did nothing against the Eagles that gives me confidence this week.  And after all, the Boys went into Seattle last week and won.  What's fair is fair.
WIN; 31-21 Cowboys

COLTS -3 (Bengals)
Last week's O.T. tie was the big let down I thought the Bengals were thus far avoiding.  They'll play another close game in Indy, but run into bad LUCK at the end.
WIN; 27-0 Colts

Titans +5 1/2 (D.C. HOGS)
I'll take my chances with the inconsistent team on the road against the really bad team at home.
WIN; 19-17 Hogs

Dolphins +3 1/2 (BEARS)
If a Bear can go to Georgia (WK 6 vs. Falcons) and win, then a Dolphin can go to Chicago and win too.
WIN; 27-14 Dolphins

Browns -5 1/2 (JAGUARS)
The crowd in Jacksonville will be the opposing quarterback.
Loss; 24-6 Jaguars

Seahawks -7 (RAMS)
The Seahawks players will rally and win for their GM as a - thank you - for getting rid of Percy Harvin.
Loss; 28-26 Rams

Panthers +7 (PACKERS)
Cam Newton is healthier these days.  I'm merely looking for the Panthers to cover in a high scoring game.
Loss; 38-17 Packers

RAVENS -7 (Falcons)
Sure Flacco is doing well, but the Ravens are getting it done with defense.....again.  For the Falcons, defense is just a theory.
WIN; 29-7 Ravens

BILLS -5 (Vikings)
Because it's the Vikings.  Motivation?  The Bills better win if they wanna keep up with the Pats.
Loss; 17-16 Bills

LIONS -3 (Saints)
Lions are merely getting the respect for being the home team.  They have the NFC's top defense, but they won't hold Drew Brees to 3-points like they did to Minnesota.  But of course, the Saints can't function on the road.
Loss; 24-23 Lions

CHARGERS -4 (Chiefs)
A low scoring game.  The Bolts by 5?
Loss; 23-20 Chiefs

Cardinals -3 1/2 (RAIDERS)
Cards know the Niners are in Denver.  Mr. Spock would say lay the points.
WIN; 24-13 Cardinals

49ers +6 1/2 (BRONCOS)
I'm definitely looking for the Niners to cover.  Outcome more uncertain.
Loss; 42-17 Broncos

Schmear of the Week: (2-3)
Cards -3 1/2

Short ribs, loaded potatoes, and BBQ corn on the cob...  What's on your football menu?

Good luck and have a Happy Football Sunday!
