Belated NFL Picks!!! Week 4!!!

(2-1-0) Jets 27  Okay, I’m off to a late start on this, again.  But, I don’t feel all that bad about picking the Jets to go ahead and win the game.  My Dolphins are horrible this year.  They seem to have neither an offense, nor a defense.  But, other than that …….

 (1-2-0) Dolphins 14

 

 

 (1-2-0) Jaguars

 (1-2-0) Colts  Well, I’m a bit scared of this pick.  The Colts haven’t looked very good this year, and Luck’s not playing this game. (which may or may not be good for the Colts).  Still, the Jags only win has come over the hapless Dolphins.

 

 (1-2-0) Giants

 (2-1-0) Bills  In a battle of New York, I think the smart money is on the Bills.  But, it might be a closer game than what people may think.  McCoy and Watkins are out for this game.

 

 (3-0-0) Panthers  The Panthers are undefeated, and I think with their stingy rush defense, they’ll remain so against the Buccs.  That said, I don’t believe the Panthers will make any sort of run at staying undefeated deep into the season. 

 (1-2-0) Buccaneers

 

 (1-2-0) Eagles  Well, I really don’t know how to pick this one.  Both teams have looked pretty awful this year.  The loser of this game will be in serious trouble going forward. 

 (1-2-0) Redskins

 

 (2-1-0) Raiders  I can’t believe I’m actually picking the Raiders to win a game!   While denying that they’ve already given up on the season, the Bears have just traded Jared Allen and Bostock.  And, it seems they’re making Forte available for trade.  On the Raider side, Carr is looking like a very adequate QB, while L. Murray is running very well. 

 (0-3-0) Bears

 

 (1-2-0) Texans

 (3-0-0) Falcons Well, the season isn’t going to get any easier for the Texans this week.  The Falcons have shown they’re a force this year.  Julio Jones is having yet another fantastic year, and their running game is coming along.  Meanwhile, the Texans simply haven’t shown much. 

 

 (1-2-0) Chiefs

 (3-0-0) Bengals  Well, I believe the Chiefs will be 1-3 after today.  Dalton and the Bengals have been unstoppable so far, and the Chiefs still can’t seem to get it together.  I never did believe Reid was a good fit for KC and the personnel the Chiefs have.  I think the Chiefs can be a very good team this year, but, Reid has to give up on the hope that the Chiefs are his Eagles reincarnated.  They’re not! 

 

(1-2-0) Browns

(1-2-0) Chargers  Today, the Chargers get to show that they’re still serious about playing football, this year.  Look for Rivers to have a good day.

 

 

(3-0-0) Packers  My has the tide turned on the 49ers.  A couple of years ago this would have been an easy pick.  SF at home?  They would win even against a good Pack team.  But, that was a couple of years ago.  Today?  Unless Rogers breaks his throwing arm, look for it to be a long day for the 49ers. 

(1-2-0) 49ers

 

(1-2-0) Rams

(3-0-0) Cardinals  Tough break for the Rams to have to go to Arizona, right now.  While I don’t believe the Rams are as bad as their 1-2 record, I don’t believe they’re as good as the 3-0 Cardinals.  As long as Palmer can remain healthy the Cards are going to be the team to beat in the NFC, along with the Pack

 

(2-1-0) Vikings

(3-0-0) Broncos  This is going to be an interesting game.  I would almost pick the Vikings with Adrian Peterson looking to be back in old form.  But, they’re playing at Mile High …… I look for the Broncs to win another ugly one. 

 

(2-1-0) Cowboys  Can the Cowboys win without Romo?  Well, today will tell the tale.  If they can’t beat the lowly Saints, then it wouldn’t bode well for the Cowboys.  I’m picking the Boys, but, we’ll see.

(0-3-0) Saints

 

(0-3-0) Lions

(1-2-0) Seahawks  The Lions appear to be in just a bit more disarray than the Seahawks.  Lynch looks doubtful for the Monday night game, but, I think playing in Seattle will be the difference maker.  The Lions haven’t shown a running game this year, so the ‘Hawks can look to tee off on Stafford

 

 (1-3-0) Ravens 23  The Ravens finally won a game.  It looks like this division will be another hotly contested one. 

 (2-2-0) Steelers 20

 

Well, those are my picks.  What do you think?

  1. I. Lou Minotti says:

    Jeffrey Lurie’s PC Eagles have refused to use the name “Redskins” in their media releases leading up to this game. At least Dan Snyder (the Redskin’s owner) refuses to change the name.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/09/30/eagles-apparently-are-avoiding-the-washington-team-name/

    The way my Iggles have been playing over the first four weeks of the season, I think THEY should change their name to the Beagles! But then again, that would be a politically incorrect slur against some of our finest canine friends.

    • Lars P. says:

      “that would be a politically incorrect slur against some of our finest canine friends.”
      Then maybe PC doves?

      • I. Lou Minotti says:

        Now that’s funny! I was thinking more along the lines of Oregon putting out an amber alert for a missing Duck, and the Iggle’s owner saying “I found your village idiot–you can have him back.”

  2. I. Lou Minotti says:

    Ha! Dan Snyder is now saying to Jeffrey Lurie the limp-wristed, “Instead of ignoring our moniker, why not change your’s to the Philadelphia Beagles? Kick-ass manhood team 23, Beagles 20. Dogs always lay down when they know they can’t win.

    I suspect the Beagles will soon be sniffing about for a new quarterback and head coach. Too bad the owner doesn’t have the nads to pull the trigger and bring back Buddy Ryan’s coaching clone.

    Perhaps the Philadelphia Beagles need a revisit from the head pedophile of Rome for a Satanic blessing if they want to start winning, like they had last week when they finally beat the Jits.

  3. If the Redskins must change name, the NY yankees must change thiers also.
    Yankee is native American meaning ‘whiteskins’.

    • I. Lou Minotti says:

      Ouch!

    • Jim Masterson says:

      The Seahawks put in a poor showing last Monday. Last year’s Seahawks would have trounced on the Lions leaving no doubt as to the winner. This year’s Seahawks couldn’t even sack Stafford. And we have another questionable, pro-Seahawk ruling by the officials that would have changed the outcome of the game.

      A three-peat by the Seahawks of the Super Bowl seems very unlikely. From the current crop of teams, it looks like Green Bay and New England will be in the Super Bowl this time–but it’s early and things could change.

      Jim
