I Am Not A Man, I Am Dynamite – Plus Playoff Picks

Again, really, just the playoff picks.
If it weren’t for the inability of Blair Walsh to connect on a field goal from the nine-yard line, I’d have gone a perfect 4-0 for the weekend. And I even made a little time to watch a few chunks of the game, due to an unexpected storm.
Thanks, Blair. That’s what you get for your stupid girl’s name.
Also, LACES OUT, MARINO!
That such still needs to be said in this age of EAS supplements and every person on the sideline tapping away on a Microsoft Surface Pro 2 during the game, you’d think they’d have that basic element nailed down.
But you’d be wrong.
Anyway, for the coming slate of games, again, I don’t expect to watch much of it at all. Maybe a little bit of the Saturday afternoon game, but probably even then not really. It’s a busy stretch of weeks coming up and that makes the weekends all the more valuable. This weekend, all the home teams are favorites, and I expect that to factor in to a point. The biggest question mark on my board is Broncos/Steelers. If Rothlisberger and Brown play most of the game, I think they win and cover. If it’s Landry Jones I think the Steelers are out but still cover. If Brown is also for sure out, maybe it’s Denver for the win and cover.
Everything else I expect to go according to Hoyle.
In completely unrelated news, because it will never have anything to do with the NFL playoffs, the Rams are back in Los Angeles, and better still, the Raiders stay in their dumpster fire in Oakland, the Chargers stay in their gravel pit on the outskirts of San Diego, and the only losers are Dean Spanos, Al Davis’ soul, and 11 St. Louis Rams fans.
I can live with all of that.
Now sure, there’s a chance (a good chance) that the Chargers also end up in Los Angeles, and essentially become the Clippers of the NFL. And not the decent Clippers of the past two or three years – I’m talking about the decades-long joke of an afterthought that they were from the 70s until Our Simple Affirmative Action President’s re-election campaign.
That’ll be the Chargers future in Los Angeles, having to cajole attendance with free tickets given out for blood donations.
At any rate, this is what it is.
