Things got started early today in London. The Ratbirds missed their wake up call, however. Yeeeeesh.
But we’re at the day’s halfway point finally. What’s on tap this late afternoon?
Seattle at Tennessee (4:05pmEDT, FOX)
I like the Titans and Mariota in this one. Take Tennessee and give the 2 points. Plus, as usual, Pete Carroll is on drugs….
“I think we’ll continue to grow,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said after last week’s victory over the 49ers. “We’re going to get better. I think we can see us making the improvement that’s going to be important for us.”
Cincinnati at Green Bay (4:25pmEDT, CBS)
The Bungles can’t score. The Cheesedicks can’t stop anybody from scoring. It’s the classic “Resistible Force meets the Movable Object” scenario. That being said, the Packers probably have the better chance at the bounce back win. Duh. Take the Packers, give the 6.5. Also, Marvin Lewis is doing his best Pete Carroll impression soooo….
“We have to have a direction of execution and things have to fit together and we’ve got to provide opportunity to attack the defense,” Lewis said. “We’ve got to do a great job attacking what is our perceived weakness of the defense and get the ball to our guys who can make plays.”
“Perceived” weaknesses. LOL.
Kansas City at Nawt San Diego (4:25pmEDT, CBS)
First, Andy Reid has apparently accumulated too much cholesterol in his cerebral arteries….
“I’m from there so I’m an L.A. guy,” Reid said. “I’m glad pro football is back. It’s a big city and it can handle two teams.”
…but I get it. Coachspeak. AKA…bullshit. If either team is still there in 10 years, I’ll shoot myself. If both teams are still there, I’ll shoot you.
KC is the no brainer in this one, -3. But honestly, I wouldn’t bet this game. Alex Smith has overachieved and is due to fall. Philip Rivers hasn’t exactly underachieved necessarily, but he has had a difficult time getting the motor running consistently, mostly due to lack of complimentary parts. I think that changes today, even if it does occur only temporarily and in the wrong town. Bolts get their first LA win by a FG late.
Also, CBSSports.com still has this game listed as being played in Qualcomm Stadium. Way to go, CBS. I mean it’s not like the Bolts moving from San Diego to LA was a big story or anything. I understand how you might have missed it. You’re doing fine.
OK folks. Go, watch, drink, comment.
Make me proud.
But pace yourselves…we’ve still got the late late SNF game yet to go…
