NFL WEEK ELEVEN

UPDATE: HEADING INTO SUNDAY NIGHT'S GAME we're going to be down 120, so like any good gambler we're going to try and get ahead on the next game. Colts +2.5 200 against the Chargers. 

Monday morning: Thank you Indy/Thank you Adam Vinateri.  We finish the week +80 and +659 for the year. 

45 years ago yesterday Camelot ended with the successful conspiracy to assassinate President Kennedy.  The Commissioner of the NFL, Alvin Pete Rozelle called JFK Press Secretary Pierre Salinger who was on his was to Tokyo. Salinger told Rozelle he was sure Kennedy would not want the NFL games canceled. The games were played and Rozelle later said it was the biggest mistake he made as commissioner of the NFL. 

As to the conspiracy, beyond the findings of  the 1979 House Select Committee on Assassinations that Oswald did not act alone, there is the issue of the single bullet (magic bullet) theory. 

Warren Commission exhibit 399 is an almost pristine bullet. To believe Oswald acted alone, you have to believe only three shots were fired (for reasons having to do with the operation of Oswald's rifle, he only had time to fire three shots.). If only three shots were fired then CE 399 killed the president. However, this pristine bullet, which was coincidently found on a stretcher at Parkland Hospital, and for which there is no legal chain of custody,  is responsible for the following: 

CE399 passed through President Kennedy’s neck and Governor Connally’s chest and wrist and embedded itself in the Governor’s thigh. In doing so,  this bullet traversed 15 layers of clothing, 7 layers of skin, and approximately 15 inches of tissue, struck a necktie knot, removed 4 inches of rib, and shattered a radius bone. And barely had a mark on it when it was found.  
To use a technical legal term: No Way Jose. 

Anyway enough with the history lesson, and on with the games:

We limp in to the 10th week up 579 Penningtons, battered, bruised, but unbowed. 

The Bills go to KC giving the Chief's three points. The Bills are streaky, a bunch o wins, followed by a bunch o losses. Regression to the mean. The Bills bounce back -3 +100. 

Carolina Panthers go the Atlanta to play the surprising Falcons. The Falcons are the other Dolphins this year, posting a 6-4 record after a horrible previous season. But let's not forget the Falcons still have a rookie QB, and the Panthers have a good defense. We like Carolina at even for 200. 

The Dolphins are favored by 2 over The Patriots. Last year in November, did you ever think a year later the Dolphins and the Patriots would have the same record? Did you ever imagine that a year later the Fins would be playing in late November for a chance at a playoff spot?  Well done Bill (Big Tuna) Parcells. Well done indeed.  If there is any play here it is the under 42, but we're staying away. 

By the way folks, in this scenario- the Dolphins win and the J..E...T...S... lose to the undefeated Titans, your Miami Dolphins will have gone from WORST TO FIRST.!!! Not bad, not bad  at all. 

Go Fins.

Dudes...Rumpole is like so wrong in so many ways. First of all, Kennedy was killed, he has a brain tumor and is like sick and all.

Second, the Patriots haven't like lost a game since like Vince Lombardi was the quarterback of the California 49'ers like in the 90's or some weird stuff like that. No way the Dolphins are tied with them.

We love Rump and all, but sometimes he's embarassing.

Fake Migna: Can the happy crap Stan, Miami loves me and that translates into Leban's Courtroom and Chambers on 4.

Fake Fernandez: back the F up jack. I'm about to be chief judge and if Blake doesn't want to find himself starting the homestead circuit branch court, I get Leban's courtroom.
