FOOTBALL WEEK THREE

UPDATE: FINS WIN!!-  The Dolphins put to rest today any comparison between their undefeated team the the cheaters, when the evil genius  proved he cannot win without his precious Quarterback. A few numbers, actually one number jumps out: 21. The Cheaters had won 21 straight regular season games; the Fins were 1-21 in their last 22 regular season games. And number 21 for the 72 Fins? Jim Kiick, as the Dolphins KIICKED the Patriots today but good. 


We're up $507.50 for the year, and now things are tough. 
Some nice games this weekend, including Cowpokes at Green Bay and Steelers at Eagles. 

The Monday night game is the J..E...T...S  at San Diego. Lots of things to worry about in this game, including the health of LT. The over is 43, and Brett Favre on Monday night lights it up. Over +50. 


The Steelers drive down the Pike to Philly, and it won't be many times this year the men in Black and Gold are underdogs. The Eagles are coming off a short week, and a barn burner on Monday night. Can keep up the high level of play? Maybe. But take a flyer on the Steelers for +3.5 and +75.

The Bungles play the Gints in NJ. We blew it last week on the under as the high flying Giant Offense surprised us. No more. The Bengals have a few weapons, the Giants have a lot. Over 43  +100. 

Dallas goes to Green Bay with an awesome performance Monday night. They are a road team on a short week. The Pack loses their starting safety, and that's not good when you have to cover TO. However, we said Dallas is not as good as everyone thought they were, and the Pack would be better.  Home Dogs have bought many a bettor a mansion. The Pack +3 +50. 


Suicide Pool:
David Over Markus: The Bills. 
Rick Freedman: Giants
Steel Curtain: Patriots
Rumpole: Bills- Sunday morning change.
Feiler: Denver
Surph- Seattle (late pick but got it in.)



Stat of the week: For the two weeks after the Republican Convention, Dem VP Candidate Joe Biden gave 54 interviews or press conferences. Sarah Palin in the same time gave....ZERO. What are the Republicans afraid of? Thanks to the New Yorker Magazine for that stat. 

Obama had his first good week since the Republican Convention and he appears to be back on message.  The Good News for McCain is that the Rasmussen poll has McCain taking a slight lead (48-46) in Colorado this week. Colorado has become a battle ground state and both campaigns are spending time and money in the state. A week ago is was Obama 49-47. 

But Colorado aside, right now we have Obama at 263 with the close states Virginia and Michigan in his camp. We have McCain at  246 with Colorado and Florida and Pennsylvania in his camp, and Nevada and Minnesota about to be placed in his column. Ohio is still too close to call but we are watching some polls this weekend which may trend well towards Obama as his message on the economy has gained steam this week. Only 27% of Americans polled agreed with the statement that "John McCain was correct when he said the economy was fundamentally sound." 

If this was a football game this would be the start of the third quarter with McCain kicking off to Obama who is leading 7-3. McCain needs to hold and then score when he gets the ball to get back in the game.  One of this guys is going to have a "Dolphins" week soon, and that won't be pretty.

Rumpole, can you recommend a place to buy suits without breaking the bank?

McCain may have nailed behind the lines, an unacknowledged safety, while insuring his political career. The Nation reports http://www.nationinstitute.org/p/schanberg09182008pt1 that
McCain has spent years covering what happened to the other POWs in Vietnam that he left behind. Now, the closer he gets to President, the more people are starting to ask about the coverup.

2:49. Great point. A real coward that McCain. Who wouldn't be able to deal with the pain and terror he went through? C'mon, we've all been through far worse. Why, I had a paper cut just this morning. Let's judge him. Let's talk about how he didn't suffer enough to test a real man. Obama's done far more for the country. Let's review:

1. Uh, ........he once gave 2 speeches in one day.

Name an industry other than the financial one--investments, credit, real estate--where there's massive upheaval and we're watching the industry leaders fail after sitting on top of the heap for 100 years or more.

I'll do it for you. It can't be done because there aren't any.

The only place where there is crisis is in the banking/financial industry because financial institutions/banks made loans to people who couldn't afford to pay them back at ridiculous rates. The people taking the loans were dumb and the people giving the loans were dumb.

If we don't "rescue the economy" several banks will fail; a lot of people will lose their jobs, houses or both; and a bunch of poorly run businesses will no longer be in operation. THAT IS ALL THAT WILL HAPPEN.

If we do "rescue the economy" a bunch of poorly run businesses will continue to operate and do so in even riskier fashion then the are now because they will think, "We can't fail. The federal government will just rescue us."

This is an interesting blog because I get to see what lawyers think about subjects that non-lawyers rarely discuss, but you guys need to stick the law. I don't try to tell my cardiologist how to practice medicine. You guys have no business telling the rest of us how to run our businesses.

I don't hate the Dolphins, but guys, come on. Patriots hate is really getting out of control. You're forgetting that the cheating was on the FIRST game of last season. Well? EXPLAIN THE OTHER FIFTEEN GAMES. Do you think they'd be THAT stupid to just keep doing it after that point?

And forget last season, Cassel won against Favre of all people people losing to the Dolphins. FAVRE. People have off days. It was his third game and Miami's always been something of a stumbling block for NE. Jeez, give teams a freaking break.
