NFL WEEK 9

How about dem....Dolphins!!! Three games have ended on a safety in the history of the NFL. Can you name them? 
We didn't pick the Fins, but their victory makes perfect sense in our regression to the mean theory of NFL betting: the Fins came in with a 4 game losing streak and the Bengals, on the road, had a 4 game winning streak, three of those games by last second field goals. The Bengals were due for a loss, the Fins due for a win. 


SURVIVOR POOL:  Is this week we get a winner? Everyone has picked the Cowboys over the visiting Vikes except Colby who likes the Pack (and can please stop thanking us in every email for running the pool). Colby has put himself into a position to win this week. 






PICKS:
It's a difficult week, but we will try our best:

Colts -2.5 over struggling Texans. Colts have recently played this game well on the road and they are the better team. 

Ravens -2.5 at struggling Browns. It's time for the Ravens to begin to make their playoff run. It's time for the Browns to get serious about landing the number one pick next year. 

Bills +4.5 at home over the Chiefs. The Bills are playing tough, even with a third string QB. Their Defense is keeping them in games and they are a good home dog. Also take the under 43. 

If you're playing the J..E...T...S cycle, one week up, one week down, this is their up week. So take them at home +6.5 over the Saints.

Who was the lawyer who TO like, pulled out a sharpie and autographed the juror badges for them after a verdict?

Rump. You asked. Three games have ended on a safety in the history of the NFL. Can you name them?

Of course you meant to say three games have gone into overtime and ended on a safety. The Fins game was one of those three.

I guess the best thing about that final series was the Fins inability to make a first down on third and one. By still needing a couple of feet to go on fourth down, Philbin, much to the amazement of the fans in the stadium, did not go for it, but elected to punt. Hindsight being 20-20 it was a great decision.

Rump, I'd like to run my acceptance speech by you, which I'd like to give Monday night, after the game, assuming we can get network time:

"I'd like to thank my agent, Sol Moscowtiz and all the people at Creative Artists Agency, my attorney, Irving Blumberg, and Nick the Greek and all the people at his diner who told me to pick the Rams in week five, and Edgar my driver, and of course the entire Eisenhower administration for getting pissed off at Castro and freezing Cuban assets otherwise I'd still be assessing $167 in costs and 4 hours of traffic school. And of course Rumpole, who took a shot on an unknown kid from out west who nobody thought had it in him. Hey everyone! I did it!"

Does that work Rumpolium?

What's the deal with this Game Break on Fox with Kurt Minafee? The game's not broken, and Minafee is the biggest wackadoo since fake Risivy.

Muther fisnsnflfw01k21 Vikings defense can't stop babies crawling for their mommas on a marble floor. This is a FIX. I was the winner. I want a recount. Where is al gore and the Florida supreme court? I should be the winner darn it. Drat to all heck and back.

Fake Colby said...

OK Officially I am changing my pick from the Bears to the Dolphins, which I wanted to pick Thursday night and actually did pick, which means that like everyone else I am alive this week, OK? Because otherwise, I have this bad karma feeling about my pick now that the Vikings folded like a cheap justice building criminal defense lawyer that sees a jury panel in the hallways.

Fake you know who said...

I wish I was more taciturn.

Dinner at the Palm in LA, on me. A cup of coffee with Vince Vaughn. Laker seats. Just help em fix it for this nudge.

REAL FAKE JUDGE JONATHAN COLBY said...

I don't believe that I could be the only suicide pool loser this week with those Cowboys winning at the last minute .... and I am now stuck to watch Monday Night Football all by myself at 5pm California time -- hoping my "fishtunkina" (Yiddish term) Packers win .... or I am out of the NFL pool this year -- after thanking Rumpole every week!

Oy vey. "Tell my Judicial Assistant to get me my lawyer Sol Moscowitz on the phone me. I don't care if it is Sunday!"

The Chiefs may be the weakest 9-0 team in history. They have beaten one team with a winning record. And that was the Cowboys who they beat by one point.

Today they won without an offensive TD. They got into the red zone one time and settled for a field goal.

They were outgained 470 yards to 210 yards by Buffalo who managed to hand the Chiefs two defensive TDs.

Don't be surprised if they lose at least four of their final seven games.

Agree Rump ???

I have no worries tonight, having changed my pick to the Dolphins, and because they won, I am busy studying next weeks games. You haven't heard the last of me! I am relevant! I will be heard!
