Rick, "junior" says Denver over Jacksonville is your best choice.  Just to let you know....

Thanks to you and Strider and Paul.  I guess I am going with the majority even though I say the Steelers will bury the Giants as the G men have been fortunate with the schedule and are due for a loss.  I cannot see them leaving Pittsburgh with a win.  As for Denver, their inability to stop KC at crunch time worries. me. If Hurns is out, then they are a strong pick  If Jacksonville has all their receivers, its dangerous.  Denver going to Florida, vs an opponent they no doubt will take lightly.  Either way I am forced to stick my neck out.  As are the rest.

Denver can't afford to take Jax lightly. With the Raiders winning and KC beating Denver, the heat is on Kubiak and Denver to keep pace with their AFC West rivals. They cannot afford any more bad losses like last Sunday night, so I am sure Kubiak will have them focused for Jacksonville.

I read today that Denver's starting quarterback is having ankle issues and might not play.  Keep your ears open, I'll let you know what I'm hearing.  Good luck!

Ok. It's your funeral. :P

Pittsburgh by double-digits? Really? I realize Denver's qb injury has you concerned and the Giants being on the road at Pittsburgh is a lot different than the Giants playing at home.

But still...the Jags are 2-9 and the Giants are 8-3. The Jags have a history of futility. The Giants have a history of rising up and biting people on the ass when everyone doubts them. They have won two Super Bowls in the last 8 years by people underestimating them.

But if you are willing to put money and trust on Pittsburgh to handle the G-Men at home, more power to you.

P.S. I hear Watkins might be a scratch for the Raider game?

Dallas. Thought about taking Minnehaha but they are coming off three days rest while Dallas had a week to digest their turkey.

Of course Sean, she is a Zeke and Adam girl!  Zeke went to high school just down the road from where she grew up and she could never stand Romo and thinks Dak is the second coming of Aikman/Staubach.  I agree, but I've always stayed by my teams side.  Perfect harmony here, except for.... Well you know.

My news is better.  I am in the Buffalo Market.  He will play!!!!!  He has a broken bone in his foot so they are going easy on him.  But he can play.  As for the Steelers they are far better at home and the Giants are way over due to lose and only getting Cleveland on that dick schedule they have has prevented that.  The Steelers will hand them their ass's at home.  Denver is too risky because the QB is a game time decision and Jacksonville even though their record is brutal has played far better than their record suggests.  They are more dangerous of a bottom feeder than a team like Cleveland.  I was all set to take the Eagles over the Bengals until last weeks debacle.  The Eagles looked terrible.   I believe Pittsburgh is the safest play to at least win the game.

How many broken bones can he have before his career is in jeopardy?  I have him in multiple fantasy leagues, so I wish him the best.  But this is like some NBA careers right now, Rick.

I am not a Dr and do not know what bone it is but for them to allow him to play I am sure its something that can be dealt with in the off season/?  Or else he would be on the DL and they would be pursuing someone on the market because of Woods being down.   It sounds like Clay has gotten on Rex Ryan's bad side?  They ave using another Tight End this week and the guy is a former QB!!!!!!!  Try and figure that shit out?  Unreal.

I see Detroit up 3 pts in the first qtr. I'll take N.O. but they must win by 10. Will that work?

That game is such a toss up, jabe!  Strider makes the call, but I have no objections - straight up.

Obliged for your input, Walter. Detroit adds a TD. Long day ahead for the Saints it would appear.

Sorry I was too busy to get on the forum yesterday. You would have been good if NO had won, no matter the spread.

It is between Walter and Bong-Man tonight to decide the week's winner. If the Colts win, it's Walter for the win. If the Jets win, then Walter and Bong-Man tie for the week.
