PIGSKIN 2017: Week Eight

Week Eight


Week Seven Record:  8-3-1
Overall Record:  35-54-2
Schmear of the Week:  4-3
Bagels in the Basket:  -18

1st and Ten:
  • Bill Parcells would say, you are what your record says you are.  For the moment, that would make the Philadelphia Eagles the best team in football.
  • There's a case to be made the Rams are better.  Just saying ...
2nd and Long:
  • The king of the second chances is at it again; Ndamukong Suh is in trouble again, this time for choking someone on the Ravens.
  • Had to do a double-take on this one ... the second place Buffalo Bills traded DT Marcell Dareus to Jacksonville.  What a second rate move!
No Gain:
  • The San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Indians have yet to win a game.  They're not likely to win this week either.
  • Aaron Rogers says he'll be back in six weeks.  C'mon, man.
  • What the hell is Cam Newton's problem?
  • Bob McNair, owner of the Texans said, "..we can't have the inmates running the prison."  That obviously went over like passing gas in a space suit.  C'mon, man.
  • There's no doubt that was a dirty hit Miami's Kiko Alonso laid on a sliding Joe Flacco.

Week Eight
Friday Line ~ NYDN

Vikings -9 (Browns) *London
There's a slim chance the Browns can .... no there isn't.
WIN  33-16 Vikings

Falcons -4 1/2 (JETS)
If McCown can stay mistake free, the Jets can keep this close.  That's why I'm taking the Falcons.
WIN  25-20 Falcons

SAINTS -9 (Bears)
The Saints won't cough this up like the Panthers did.  The Bears just aren't that good.
Loss  20-12 Saints

BUCS -2 (Panthers)
I'm throwing the home team a bone here.  Cam Newton is becoming too bipolar for me.
Loss  17-3 Panthers

EAGLES -13 (49ers)
The only thing that can prevent the Eagles from covering this is the Eagles.
WIN  33-10 Eagles

Raiders -3 (BILLS)
Time to jump back on the Raiders bandwagon.
Loss  34-14 Bills

BENGALS -10 (Colts)
The Colts have more problems than a math book.
Loss  24-23 Bengals

PATRIOTS -7 1/2 (Chargers)
Get the impression New England finally got their crap together?
WIN  21-13 Patriots

SEAHAWKS -6 (Texans)
I'm not buying the Texans.  Like the Patriots, the Seahawks are just getting started.
Loss  41-38 Seahawks

Cowboys -2 (D.C. HOGS)
As long as Ezekiel Elliott plays, I'll be sticking with the Cowboys.
WIN  33-19 Cowboys

Steelers -3 (LIONS)
S'up with the Lions, man?
WIN  20-15 Steelers

Schmear of the Week:

Guten Appetit
Early > usual salsa/guac/bruschetta; shrimp tacos!
Late > Beautiful flank steak with chimichurri sauce; yellow rice; avocado; carrots; homemade onion rings; salad. 

Good luck, and have a great Football Sunday, everybody!

Week Eight Record:  6-5
Overall Record:  41-59-2
Schmear of the Week:  4-4
Bagels in the Basket:  -20
