2014 NFL Season – Week 1

I haven’t done this since 2012, so this could get interesting.  I watched football in 2013, but I didn’t have time to make predictions.  If I was to predict with my heart, I would have been saddened from all the times I would have picked the Redskins to win.  This has nothing to do with running for President of the United States except to show that I am more like you than any of the major candidates who will run in 2016.

2012 NFL Season – Super Bowl LXVII

Conference Championship record: 0-2  Postseason Record – 4-6

Har-Bowl!  Super Baugh!  Oh Brother!  Enough of the hype of the Harbaugh brothers and other pointless hype that always comes from the Super Bowl. (The game doesn’t even count in the standings).   It’s time to get down to football.

San Francisco 49ers vs. Baltimore Ravens (Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, LA)  Kickoff 5:20 Local time

Date & Time Favorite Spread Underdog
2/3 6:30 ET San Francisco -4 Baltimore

They say that San Francisco 49ers’ Quarterback Colin Kaepernick runs like a gazelle.  The Ravens’ defense runs after quarterbacks like hunters starving for gazelle meat.  Here.

Joe Flacco is an underrated quarterback who can throw the ball far and with accuracy.  The 49ers’ defense is equally underrated and want to make some noise on the big stage.

It will all go down to special teams.  The San Francisco 49ers have placekicker David Akers.  Edge: Ravens.  Take the Ravens and the Points.  It will be a Harbaugh-ible game!  (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

2012 NFL Season – Division Round

Last Week: 2-2 (.500)  Playoffs: 2-2 (.500)

You win some, you lose some.  The ones I lost (Minnesota and Baltimore) came close to covering the point spread.  But close only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, and with impatient people who just want to go home.  Once again I will give insight into the games.  Please don’t laugh.

1/12 4:30 ET Baltimore (+9.5) at Denver
Thirty years ago, John Elway had an opportunity to play for Baltimore (Colts). He demanded to be traded and was traded to the Denver Broncos. There was what seemed to be an annual tradition of the Broncos playing the Browns for the AFC Championship. The Broncos won all those games and the-then Browns soon after moved to Baltimore and became the Ravens. None of this has anything to do with Saturday’s game, except that John Elway is now the Executive Vice President of Football Operations for the Broncos and Art Modell (former owner of the Browns/Ravens) recently passed away and the current Ravens have a “Art” patch on their uniforms in his honor.  The Broncos will continue to be a pain to Art Modell post-mortem.  Take the Broncos and give the points.

1/12 8:00 ET Green Bay (+3) at San Francisco

This would have been the rematch of last year’s NFC Championship game, except that the Packers somehow lost to the eventual Super Bowl Champion New York Giants.  While the stats would suggest to take the 49ers and give the points, I have a feeling that Aaron Rodgers and the Packers find a way to win this one.  Or maybe not.  Take the 49ers and give the points.

1/13 1:00 ET Seattle (+2.5) at Atlanta

I’ll keep my logic simple.  This will be a hard fought defensive battle.  In battles like these, the team with the better running game usually wins.  Few things are harder than tackling Marshawn Lynch.  Here is a video of him in the 2010 Wild Card game against the New Orleans Saints:

Take the Seahawks and the points.

1/13 4:30 ET Houston (+9.5) at New England 

Once upon a time, this game would have been a close game and it would have been in Houston because they had the best record in the NFL for most of the season.  But football is a 16-game season and the Texans fell apart after their twelfth game.  The Patriots have been on a roll aside from a hiccup against the 49ers a few weeks ago.  Take the Patriots and give the points.

2012 NFL Season – Wild Card Round

Week 17: 11-5 (.656) Best Bets: 2-1 (.688)
Season to Date: 123-130-3 (.486) Best Bets: 26-24-1 (.520)

The hot last two weeks was not quite enough to bring me ro the ,500 mark.  There’s always next year.  But this year is the playoffs and a new chance to show my smarts (or lack thereof).   For the playoffs I will give insight as to how each game is going to go.  This is a chance to see how a real life presidential candidate thinks.

Date & Time     Favorite          Spread          Underdog

1/5 4:30 ET         At Houston          -4.5                Cincinnati

The Texans are reeling, having lost three out of the last four games.  The Bengals look impressive against the Browns and Chiefs, but not as impressive against playoff-caliber teams.  Houston survives this game only to get slapped around next week.  Take the Texans and give the points.

1/5 8:00 ET        At Green Bay       -7.5               Minnesota

The temperature in Minnesota will be around 20 degrees Fahrenheit at kickoff.  This would be good news if Minnesota played outdoors and was at home.  It will be about the same temperature in Green Bay, where they do play outdoors.  The Packers should win, but Adrian Petersen should keep it close.  Take the Vikings and the points.

1/6 1:00 ET       At Baltimore         -7                   Indianapolis

Once upon a time, the city of Baltimore would love nothing more than to see the Colts win a playoff game.  The city will be bumming after the Colts win in Baltimore this Sunday.  Mainly because the Colts are Indianapolis’s team while Baltimore has the original Browns team (now called the Ravens).  Take the Colts (Indianapolis) and the points.

1/6 4:30 ET       Seattle                     -3                 At Washington

Seattle fans see “Seattle at Washington” and wish this game was being played in the state of Washington and not the District of Columbia.   Unfortunately, this is the end of the road for my Washington Redskins.  😦  The Seahawks will run and throw all over the ‘Skins and win easily.  Take the Seahawks and give the points.

2012 NFL Season – Week 17

Last Week:10-5-1(.656) Best Bets: 2-1 (.667)
Season to Date: 112-125-3 (.473) Best Bets: 24-23-1 (.510)

We’re down to the last week of the regular season with the final game of the season pitting our beloved Redskins against the dirty Dallas Cowboys.  Speaking of dirty, I need a miracle to get to .500.  To further complicate matters, three of this weeks games are off the board.  This means that there is no point spread.  (Though I think it means there is not enough people interested in those games to make a prediction)

Happy New Year!

Season to Date: 95-111-2 (.462) Best Bets: 22-19-1 (.536)

If you believe the Mayans, then this is the last week of football ever.  I would have to pick every game correctly this week to get back to .500.

Non-football note:  The first five people who send me their address in a PM on my Facebook account will get a snail-mail Christmas card mailed to their houses.  (You don’t have to be my Facebook friend to do this, though feel free to send a request.) Click the “Message” button on the page.  They will be mailed out Saturday morning.

Now back to football!
