2008 NFL Week Four: Free Winning Picks and Chicks

Greetings folks. A decent, but not good, Week Three brought us back a little closer to respectability. However, we know we have a ton of work to do to right the ship. Our NFL season records are as follows: RPJ $yndicate is 3-7, Flash is 2-1 and Runny is 5-7. Still pretty bad, but we ain’t stopping!!!!

Well in keeping with tradition, when we blow we show more picks of hot chicks:

I have a spare hand if you need a replacement!

I have a spare hand if you need a replacement!

I just saw Transformers and I want to transform her panties into my face!

I just saw Transformers and I want to transform her panties into my face!

Here is what we like this week:

RPJ $yndicate Picks

Cardinals @ Jets (-1): The Cards looked awful last week against a Skins team that we think is pretty overrated. The Jets were just as bad against a hungry Chargers team on Monday night. What will give? The key to his game is the Cards and their road woes. They are terrible on the road. They have studs on offense and a decent D. There is no reason they should be Dogs in this game (or their last). Also, look at these facts: Jets are 11-1 ATS as home favorites vs. opponents that are .600 or better and 12-2 ATS off of Monday Night games. Nuff said. Take the Jets -1.

Falcons @ Panthers (-6.5): Don’t be fooled by the Falcons. Although they are 2-1, their two wins were against terrible teams (Lions and Chiefs). Their sole loss was a beatdown against the Bucs. The Panthers are more like the Bucs than the Lions and Chiefs. They will win, and when they win at home they are 44-8 ATS. Also, never take rookie QBs on the road. Take the Panthers -6.5.

Runny Picks

Chargers @ Raiders (+7.5): This pick pains me because I like Lane Kiffin and I think the Raiders are better than they get credit for being. I just don’t think they have enough this week, despite the fact that the Chargers are traveling off of Monday Night (if you are a reader of our blog, you’ll understand the reference and stat). Facts: Raiders are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 at home against the Chargers. This is a lot of points, but Rivers is the best QB in the league right now. Take the Chargers -7.5.

49ers @ Saints (-4): The Niners are off of a dominating win last week at home. They are young and their D seems to be on the right track. However, I am not sold on J.T. O’Sullivan. Plus, they re going on the road against a Saints team that can do some damage on offense. Facts: Niners are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 against the Saints and under Nolan, the Niners are 2-13 SU and 4-11 ATS away against non-division teams. I love the Saints in this. Take the Saints -4.

Bills @ Rams (+8): The Rams are lost and Linehan has lost this team. Players are openly stating that they don’t want to play for him and Trent Green is getting the start this week. Terrible. The Bills are loaded and are playing well. Facts: Rams are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 against the Bills and 0-12 SU and 2-10 ATS against inning teams under Linehan. This will be bloody. Take the Bills -8.

Flash Flash Picks

I should be 3-0 and I am not bitter about it or anything. I love the backdoor but I hate backdoor covers.

Only one pick for me this week and that is Redskins (+11) at Dallas. This is too many points and I live the ATS numbers.

Redskins are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. win.
Redskins are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win.
Redskins are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall.
Redskins are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. NFC.
Redskins are 21-8-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
Cowboys are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall.
Cowboys are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
Cowboys are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. NFC.
Cowboys are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC East.

Head-to-Head
Redskins are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
Underdog is 17-4 ATS in their last 21 meetings.

I do not think the Skins will win but I think they are playing better and can keep this within ten points. Take the Skins with the points!

As always, good luck with your picks.

Runny & Flash

Bill Belicheater and the Pats – A Dynasty tainted!!!

The report that Roger Goodell believes the Patriots were violating the rules following the confiscation of a camera that was allegedly used to spy on the Jets Defensive coaches during this past weekend’s game might bring down the Patriots success and dynasty image. You need to take into consideration what is being revealed here and one big dirty word…CHEATING. Cheating is cheating and has no place in sports. Cheating is anything that threatens to disrupt the integrity of the game. Cheating is people taking steroids, look at the public perception of Barry Bonds. How about Mark McGwire? he should have been a first ballot hall of famer and he was not. Do you think Raffy Palmeiro will get in any time soon? Cheating is Pete Rose betting on baseball because he single handedly had the ability to change the outcome of games through his play and coaching efforts for the purpose of winning or losing gambling bets.

Now we have Bill Belichick and the Patriots. Matt Estrella, the Pats video assistant was in possession of the video camera and he was the same guy removed from a Patriots/Packers game last year, a game the Pats were up 35-0 at the half. He also did not want to hand over the video camera and was clearly agitated at the thought of doing so. Just look at the quote:

“From what I can remember, he had quite a fit when we took him out,” Packers president Bob Harlan said.

Then you have the following report from the NY Daily news:

“New details came to light yesterday. The cameraman, wearing a team polo shirt under the league-mandated sideline photographer’s vest, was stopped by security as he tried to enter the New England locker room before halftime, sources said. An animated discussion ensued, involving league security, Jets security and Patriots security. The dispute, which occurred in the bowels of the stadium, lasted more than an hour, virtually the entire second half. At one point, it became so heated that New Jersey state troopers were summoned as a precaution, a source said. The Jets apparently were trying to confiscate the videotape, which wound up in the possession of NFL security. The tape was placed in a box, sealed and forwarded to the league.
“He looked scared to death,” one source said of Estrella.

Here is the NFL rule and Roger Goodell stressed adherance to this rule in the offseason: “No video recording devices of any kind are permitted to be in use in the coaches’ booth, on the field or in the locker room during the game. Videotaping of an opponent’s offensive or defensive signals on the sidelines is prohibited.”

In addition, the following memo was sent by the NFL’s head of football operations, Ray Anderson, to head coaches and general managers last September reiterating the policy and stating that “video taping of any type, including but not limited to taping of an opponent’s offensive or defensive signals, is prohibited on the sidelines, in the coaches’ booth, in the locker room, or at any other locations accessible to club staff members during the game.”

This is repeated problematic rules violations. Hey Estrella, if you were not doing anything wrong than hand it over. Now word is that Eric Mangini, Jets coach, was the real reason this went down. Mangini was familiar with Belichick’s video tactics and was livid about seeing the camera on his own guys. Why do you think Belichick has so much hostility towards Mangini; it is because Mangini knows about all of Belichick’s cheating ways.

These are serious allegations and Roger Goodell has shown that he is willing to come down hard on rules violators. because this is America, the Pats have the right to present their case to Goodell and sources think this will happen by the end of the week. Actually, I just received word that Belichick spoke to Goodell this morning and just had a press conference at 11AM this morning. He apologized to players, owners and fans and then said it was in the hand of the NFL and he had no more comments on it.

I am not sure what the appropriate penalty should be but I think it should be harsh. Extremely harsh. Cheaters should be punished and the Pats and Belichick are no different. If these allegations prove true than I am going to discount everything the Pats have accomplished under Belichick. Just think about what you think of Bonds and McGwire’s homers…should they have an asterix? Well the Pats wins in the regular season and Super Bowl are soured if these allegations prove true that the Pats and Belichick’s staff were cheating. Plain and simple, this is not up for debate. If Belichick is a cheater than the Pat wins and Super Bowl wins came under the direction of a proven cheater and their results need to be discounted and maybe even erased. I also think some type of serious fine and the loss of draft picks should be thrown in as well. I think Goodell will respond quickly and harshly and I can not wait to hear what he has to say.

More Vick Stuff: 7-1 He Stays Out of Jail

Vick is in serious trouble. There are two glaring things about this that should make Vick want to dig-up Johnny Cochrane immediately:

1). As Flash noted, these are Federals charges. I’m assuming the Feds are involved because of the interstate nature of the facts. I would think this would be something that the state of VA would and could handle on their own. Which does shine a light a little bit on discriminatory treatment. However, the 84 counts are insane. I’ve not read the indictment. I’m relying on what I read and hear in the press. But, 84 is A LOT and I believe they have over 5 corroborating witnesses as well as video. If true, that is nuts! No way the feds bring that type of indictment out if ther wasn’t a high degree of truth to it. That is a tough hill for any legal team to climb. However, I believe his indicment is conspiracy only, so maybe the witnesses and video are circumstantial. I have to believe that if they have 5 people that can put Vick at the scene of even one of the dog fights, the idictment would have consisted of more than conspriacy charges. I have to look into this more. If the witnesses can only give circumastanital evidence, Vick’s team has a much better chance.

2). The venue. The venue is known as a “rocket docket” and the judge is known to be a hardass. Fair, but a hardass who pushes cases through quickly. I think Vick’s celebrity can only hurt him in this case. It should be over fast.

That said, until I read more, I predict Vick gets off with a very strict probation.  I think the NFL will fold in the pressure of having to suspend one of their stars, and Goodell has already screwed this up. Cudos to the sponsors that are running far, far away from Vick. However, they are not doing enough. Nike’s suspension of his new shoe release is a joke.

Vick could lose over $300 mil by this indictment, regardless of the outcome. He could be the dumbest person on the planet. Seriously. The dumbest person on the planet. My feelings have nothing to do with his innocence or guilt. I’m actually presuming he is innocent and that his legal team will keep his dumbass from going to jail. However, I’m not dumb and anyone who gets an 84 count federal indictment had to be involved somehow. Vick is dumb because he put himself even remotely close to that situation. Completely dumb. Even worse than Pacman going near a strip club (especially with $81 large in cake on him) or any athlete/celebrity not hiring someone to drive their drunkasses around after a night on the town.

I betcha the Falcons and Arthur Blank are cursing the day they decided to trade Matt Schaub. They should have known better than to give up on a kid from northwest Indiana.

I start the line that Vick stays out of jail at 7-1.
