With all due apologies to Rikki-Tikki-Deady and Al Davis’ Re-Animated Corpse….
….for that post title. Mostly because I don’t want either showing up here uninvited.
And also my apologies for my opinion below of how this game tonight is apt to go.
Please don’t cannibalize me in my sleep tonight.
That goes for you too, Al.
Oakland @ Miami (+3.0, o/u 44.5)
OK, so neither of these teams is particularly inspiring any feelings of fear in their opponents recently, so something’s gotta give.
I’m not even going to discuss the Raiders’ D. Yikes. And offensively, they are a team with a battered and probably still in pain QB who has been humbled a bit recently, and three very mediocre backs. How do I know they’re all mediocre (at best)? Because they’ve all been on my freaking FF roster over the past two weeks. Like seriously, all of them. One of them twice (no shit lol).
I finally pulled the trigger and cut Lynch after his stupidity of pushing the official and picked up Washington. Mostly because I thought he had the higher ceiling and that someone with higher waiver priority than me would likely snap up Richard ahead of me anyway. They didn’t. So then I had second thoughts and dropped Washington for Richard. Then that didn’t work out so well (lol) so I dropped him and picked Washington back up. He’s starting for me tonight, in fact. smgdh.
tl:dr : Fuck you Oakland backfield!!!!!
Miami ain’t so hot neither, though. I know, that’s not news. But they’re probably still solid enough on D to pretty much contain the stable of mediocrity thrown at them tonight. And offensively, they do have the potential to at least put some points on the board now, especially if Cutler can find his way back to being even moderately effective. The bar isn’t terribly high, Jay. You can do it. Even without Ajayi. Especially against this Oakland D, I suspect.
So, what’s it all mean?
Well, if King Hippo has any money left in his bank accounts before this one kicks off, I’d advise him take the points and the ‘Phins in this one, if only because of home field and the Raiders have literally been on the road for two weeks. Also, probably take the under (lol).
Then again, I’m wrong a lot.
WHERE: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami, FL
Alright, let’s get this one snapped alr…..
Shit. Gimme a mulligan on that one, would ya?
