NFL WEEK TEN

We start week 10 up 599 Obamas,  which is good but not great after losing two of three picks last week. 

The Dolphins are -9 at home. -9! The last time the Fins were favored by so many points we were doing polling for....well never mind about that for now, but -9 is quite a compliment to the revitalized Dolphins. And while every pre-season poll had the Seahawks running away with the division, who told you before one down was played that the Hawks were way overrated and were not going to make the playoffs? Ahemm...just you favourite footballin blogger, thats who. 

We think 9 points is too much. But as we will be sitting in our luxury suite cheering them on, lets put 50 Joe Bidens on the Fins just for the fun of it.  (update- nice game but I knew 9 was way too much the way the Fins play conservative on offense. -55 for this one.)

It's slim pickings this week but we like the OVER 43  in the Giants/Eagles game. +75 over 43. 

The Game of the week is Green Bay at the Vikings. The Vikes at home are -2 and that's enough for us to back the Pack. Green Bay +2 +150. (win +150 although the Pack lost by one. Tough loss. They played well enough to win.)

Is there any team  more disappointing than the Oakland Raiders?  They are at home today and that shouldn't make a difference as we roll with the Carolina Panthers -8.5 +175   (late news: Jamarcus Russell is out, so we increased out bet.) (WIN! although it took a late field goal. +175).

Just in case you want to think about work today, here is the NY Times article on PD offices across the nation stopping taking cases.  The Miami PDs office is highlighted.

The Seahawks have a QB named Senneca.

Sennca was the first frozen apple juice enriched with vitamin C I'll have you know.

Harvey Shenberg at the Fins game as a guest of Dan Lurvy. Looking better then when he went in-Harvey not Dan.

Rumpole:

Did you see how the Raiders trotted out Janokowski to attempt a 58 yard field goal with 13 seconds left down by 11? The kick was meaningless except to those of us who had money on the Panthers (bet against them next week, since Jake Delhomme looked worse than Rex Grossman ever looked in this game). It's almost like Al Davis had money on this game too. There really is no other explanation for this field goal other than an attempt to beat the gambling point spread. Luckily, the field goal hit the crossbar and harmlessly bounced back into the end zone, thus giving us gamblers an exciting finish to an otherwise lousy game.

Your old pal, Brad

hey RUMP..how do you explain your STEELER fiasco today? i know that you are their number one fan. i rely on your enthusiasm and never ending loyalty to your Steeler team when i wager - and i defer to you.

Maybe i should just stick to your british soccer picks???

Harvey wasn't my guest but he was sitting behind me and I did walk out with him. (Go fins!) True, he looks better then ever. Says hello to anyone who cares. Moving out of town to live out his days.
