NFL WEEK 11 2013

The Final Five: The survivor pool has come down to the final five: 

Hailing from parts unknown, the ineffable and mysterious Lucy Lew; the gourmand of hip: Kenny Weisman, the man, the myth, the legend: Dan Lurvey,  bringing a little civility to an unruly group of criminal lawyers, Alan  Kaiser, and your faithful blogger, seeking his second survivor pool title, Rumpole. 

Lucy Lew picks Cincy, as do we, Lurvey growls with the Bears, while Kaiser doesn't believe the Jags are for real and takes the Cardinals, while Weisman, bringing up the rear and glancing at Colby over his shoulder, also goes with the Redbirds over the Jags. Technically speaking, Lurvey has put himself in line to win it all. He's the second player to be in that position this year. The first was...well,  like Paulie who sold out the old man, "won't see him no more."

Here's our picks for Sunday:

The Bengals are finally home after a tough two week road trip. The last time they were home the Bengals lit up the Jets for over 40 points. Cincy -6 over the Browns.

San Diego charges into town to take on our struggling Dolphins. Are the Fins in disarray? Yes. Did they perform horribly on Monday night losing to the Buccaneers? Yup.  Does Rumpole's revert to the mean theory mean that the Dolphins bounce back at home? Absolutely. The bankruptcy courts are full of bettors who went against home dogs. Take the Fins at home +1.5.

Cheaters at Carolina: Fancy pants Brady and his no-name offense come up against a legitimate and surging Carolina defense. Couple the strong Carolina D with some bad weather and we like the under 47. 

The same goes for the Jets at Buffalo. The Bills are a different team at home, and they have a very good defense. The Jets know that their key to winning is keeping Geno Smith out of difficult third and long situations where he tends to put the ball up for grabs. A resurgent Jets running game, a very stingy Bills defense, and some bad weather all lead to an under 41. 

Monday: Happy Anniversary to Us, and a mystery judge settles in as an anonymous juror in the posh REGJB jury pool digs.

In case you're following our FF league, we've made the ballsy-ist move of the year: sitting an ailing Peyton Manning at home against a tough Chief's defense and playing Andy Dalton who last time he was at home lit up the Jets for 41 points. Sitting the top scorer in FF while fighting for a playoff spot in a division game is a tough call- and we get pad for making the tough calls. Will it payoff? We'll let you know.

Rump. Nothing on ur blog about a certain judge that was in the front row for a lap dance in court last week during a trial. Can you give us some of the salacious details.

Mort: please advise me of status of emergency injunction against the blog suicide pool. 1- the continuation of the pool without me, the rightful winner. Causes irreparable harm to me. 2- the remedy is to order the immediate suspension of the contest until I am reinstated.
3- please bill my super pac: retired judges of america.
Go get em pitbull.

The dolphins need to give the chargers the ol'shumie-doo.

Third District Court of Appeal: said...

BREAKING NEWS:

The 3d DCA issued an injunction halting the Justice Building Suicide Pool from going forward. The court took Former Judge Colby's Motion seriously whereby he stated that he already had won the pool with his past pick of the Packers. Under Palsgraf v. Long Island Railroad Co., 248 N.Y. 339, 162 N.E. 99 (N.Y. 1928), the Court holds that Colby automatically wins as it was "completely unforeseeable that quarterback Aaron Rogers would have been injured during the game and unable to actually win against the crippled Bears." Hence, the picks this week are void ab initio. Inter alia, Colby wins. Sorry to Kenny W., the purveyor of all things fine ....

Lurvey squeaks by as Bears win in overtime in very long weather delayed game. Nobody out in pool and five march on to week 12.
