NFL WEEK 4

ERRATA:  Mark Vargo is still alive as he picked the Saints over the Vikings last week. 

Difficult pickings this week, as the lines look to be about right in each game. So we are reverting to a tried and true method, revert to the mean- which means that teams are neither as good or as bad as they appeared the week before (Jaguars notwithstanding). 

Packers +2 at the Bears. 
Panthers +3 at the Ravens.
Over 54 Saints/Cowboys. 
Over 44 Lions at Jets.
49'ers -4.5 at home over the Eagles. 

UPDATED SURVIVOR POOL WITH ALL THE LAST MINUTE CHANGES . THE POOL IS NOW LOCKED AND CLOSED. 


Until then....

"I'll find em for three, but I'll catch em and kill em for 10."






What Rumpole is reading:
"This Is Where I Leave You" by Jonathan Tropper. 
Funny, poignant and sad, often in the same paragraph. A writer of great depth and strength. 

"Our Mathematical Universe: My Quest For The Ultimate Nature Of Reality" By Max Tegmark. 
This is probably not for you.

"Keep that chum line going chief, we got five good miles on it. One time I caught a sixteen footer off a Montaulk. Had to stick two barrels in it. Two to wear it down, and bring it up. Now adays these kids bring out everything, radar sonar.... best drop another chum marker chief."

Damn it Martin, that's compressed air. You screw around with these things and they're going to blow up.

Quint: Yeah, that's some real fine equipment you got there. Don't know what that shark's gonna do with it, Seen one eat a rocking chair once......

49'ers Friday Press conference.

Coach, one more question. Have you heard about that lawyer in Miami who's been despondent ever since he picked you guys in week two in his survivor pool and you lost?

Harbaugh: Yes, as a matter of fact I have and let me say this about that. We as a team really appreciate his support and we regret letting him down. Except for the 72 Dolphins, even the best teams will lose a game, and we want him to know that we will work hard to regain his confidence. We are in the process of getting his address and wil be sending him some complimentary 49'er gear, towels and hats and some footballs and stuff.

Nothing rivals this line:
"We're gonna need a bigger boat."

But, the tale of what happened to the USS Indianapolis is seared in my memory because of this movie. RIP sailors.

And of course the best for last....

"You're gonna need a bigger boat."

Kenny has pride. He doesn't want to be saved. But I'm sure he wouldn't mind some prayers.

Rumpole … I had changed my pick from the 49ers to the Chargers. Check your email. It is 1:08pm Pacific time. I sent the email changing my pick a few days ago?

Max "Shapiro" Tegmark's Level IV multiverse is a figment of his wild imagination.
