NFL 2013 WEEK SIX

We went a very average (for us) 5-1 in our picks last week. Ho hum. 
And then there were ten: In the Survivor Pool the NY Jets (they of the much better defense then anyone gave them credit for)  upset of the Falcons took out a large chunk of the playing field, while the rest of us rode the Rams over the hapless Jags. This week, the picks are more varied, with many players already having picked the Broncos who play the Jags at home. You may note that Messrs. Lurvey and Weisman like to play it close and email their picks at the last moment. Do not doubt that we ensure their picks are in before the game begins. This week Sautter and Vargo hopped on the Bears in the early game and have a ten day rest until they're up again. Nice pick. 




Our Picks: 

Over 41 Steelers at Jets looks juicy;  Give the 6 and take Cincy at Buffalo; Give the 5 and take the Cowboys at home over the Redskins; Over 41 San Fran/Arizona. 

And now the line everyone wants to know about: Broncos/Jaguars, which opened at 28 and is anywhere from 26 to 28. Fact: the last four teams who were plus 20 have won or covered.  And it's tempting to take the points here, but, having Peyton and Welker on our fantasy team (3-2, win last week) we've watched the Broncos closely, and they are a very, very good football team. They have weaknesses, but they are few, mostly because they have the best football player in the last twenty years to put on a uniform. Manning takes over a game. He sniffs out the opposing team's plans, exploits the weakness, and puts them away. It's easy to envision the Broncos going up quickly, say 14-0, then 17-3 at half. A quick TD in the 3rd quarter makes it 24-3, and then it's a ball game. The Denver Defense has a lot to answer for for last week's performance in Dallas. Jacksonville is just what the doctor ordered. Take the Broncos, lay the points, Oh Doctor!

See You In Court Tuesday.

Need some help or advice. My partner is cooking the books. Or to put it another way, is stealing. I had my suspicions (2 yr old partnership) so I hired an old friend/PI and sent him in as a subject of a federal investigation with $3,500 cash and a $5,000.00 check.

The jerk kept the cash, somehow cashed the check and got a $2,500.00 bank check which he gave to the office manager as a retainer against a quoted feee of 10K for pre-indictment work.

Of course I can break up the partnership, but how do I find how much more has been stolen before we part ways? Not sure we can afford a big forensic accounting. I'm thinking of confronting him with the evidence and asking him for 25K to go away quietly. I am sure the figure is more.

Speaking of churlish crooks.... Florida Overlord Rick Scott didn't bother to contact the three 3d DCA JNC nominees who didn't make the final cut - 2 of which are sitting Circuit Judges - to advise them of same.
His staff called the 3 that actually made the cut and didn't have the courtesy to contact the others to give them the bad news. Instead one of them found out from a friend that the decision had been made almost one week ago.
Rick Scott is like school in the summer time: NO CLASS!

Not for nothing,but it's 14-3 Denver, 2nd Quarter.

It's a gift in a way.

Who made the cut for the 3rd DCA and who did not?

Sanchez who? Not the idiot Migna? If she is selected Scott will have to select some one to replace Emas. Emas will have a cerebral aneurism the first time he is on a panel with that dimwit

The Migna stuff is boring. Move on.
