In honor of the NY Times putting an editorial on gun violence on the front page- the Times hasn't put an editorial on the front page since 1920- we present our NFL picks in firearm fashion, noting that there are more guns than people in the US. Indeed the second amendment states "There must be more guns than people in the country."
And lets not forget the famous statement of George Washington as he crossed the Potomac river on Christmas Eve to save the Capital from marauding Muslims hordes: "They'll get my gun when they pry it from my cold, dead hands."
And of course the bible, which states "And thou shall go forth and multiply and all the lands and all the seas shall belong to your people so long as they shall each keep a firearm in their homes for the days of their lives, for on this day I say unto you 'guns don't kill people, people who don't believe in the lord kill people.' And you shall go forth and shoot all your enemies dead. Thus sayeth the lord."
This is a sport that employs the Shotgun and Pistol formations. Star quarterbacks are said to "have a rifle" for an arm, and they "gun the ball" to their receivers. The key player on special teams who runs down the field to make the tackle is the "gunner". High scoring games are a "shootout" and mistakes are characterized as "shooting himself in the foot."
With the biblical and constitutional foundation for firearms firmly in place, we make our picks:
Ravens at Fins. No shootout here, but the Fins bounce back. Miami -3.5.
Cowpokes at Skins. In the 1970's Coach Landry revitalized the long gone "shotgun" formation with Roger Staubach. For a while, they were the only team using the formation. We also remember the "Flex" defense which was brilliant and should be revived. But the current pokes can't hold a candle to those Cowboys. They have a pop-gun offense. Skins -3.5.
Broncos at Chargers. Dangerous game for Denver. Bolts will keep it close. But we like the over 43.5.
