NFL WEEK FIVE 2019

We are having (for us) a sub-par season picking the games. And today's menu is like being a vegan at a Brazilian steakhouse where they bring platters of meat to your table. But like a criminal court judge assigned to a civil forfeiture calendar, we bravely solider on. 

WIN ๐Ÿ˜‡Cheaters (-11) at Redskins. Longtime and careful readers of the blog know our disdain for the gang from Foxboro. But they have a really really good defense. They have a guy that can toss the rock. And the Redskins are in complete disarray. There are reports their coach has been consuming illegal substances on video, doesn't like the QB they drafted in the first round at 15, and that Colt McCoy will be under center to start the game. Pro tip- always bet against QB's named "Colt". The name is too good to be true. Cheaters -11. 

Two games on local TV are worth a look. The Ravens go to Pittsburgh  which is coming off an impressive win on MNF. Even if both these teams were 0-8, it would be a great game because of the rivalry. Ravens a bit overrated, Steelers are just slightly better than they seem. If the Steelers can run, they can win. They have JuJu and a rookie WR who has two TD catches in the last two games. Mason Rudolph is not Patrick Mahomes or Daniel Jones, but he doesn't need to be. The Steeler D is getting better with the addition of Miami FS Fitz. Lay the three and have an Iron City Beer while watching the game. 

LOSS  ๐Ÿ˜ž  Vikes at Gints. Now this is a game we are interested in. Danny-Boy Jones, the  Gints rookie QB has yet to lose in the NFL. He's had a good game and a bad game but he is 2-0. The Vikes QB stunk up the joint last week and then took the blame.  All things being equal, the Vikes should win. But all things aren't equal. Minny has a losing record on the road, outdoors, against teams with winning records. While the NY Football Giants at 2-2 do not have a winning record, they are 2-0 under new QB Jones. The Purple People players have not convinced us that they should be road favourites. Take the NY Jones's +5.5 

WINNER WINNER Chicken Dinner ๐Ÿ˜€
Bucs at Saints. Are we believers in Tampa Bay? Ummmm…..maybe. Before the season we thought coach Arians would turn around  QB Jameis Winston so we drafted him in our FF league. Then he stunk up the joint and we dropped him and then he caught fire. We like the Bucs, but are they the type of team that wins two hard road games back to back? While their win in LA was impressive, they return to the mean this week. Saints -3.5 in the big easy. Have a beignet at the end of the day and enjoy a good game. 

BTW, the Dolphins will NOT lose today. Guaranteed. 

We lose the loser bowl. ๐Ÿ˜ž
Loser Bowl. Arizona at Cinny. Neither team has a win. Something has to give. Bengals get off the schneid and win and cover -3. 

Survivor League. 
Lots of people picking Philly, Could be a problem. J...E...T....S have to win a game and Philly is the type of team that could underperform. 
Public Pretender sent an email saying they are withdrawing from the league based on "rule changes". Not sure what is bothering them. Not sure about any rule changes. They are invited to make a pick before the 4pm, 8pm, or MNF game. 




IMPEACHMENT
We try and avoid legal chat on Sundays. Unlike Mr. Markus's blog, this is not the place for an intellectual discussion on the common law roots of the hearsay exception or philiosphical dissertations on Rule 17C subpoenas. BUT... here is POTUS's tweet last night:

“I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats! #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY,”

See, here's the thing. President's aren't perfect. They do not know everything. But they should know politics. And if they are facing impeachment, they should know how it works. 
So, umm, Mr. President, we think you should know that ahh...senators aren't impeached. They are removed by a vote of the sentate. Just sayin....

Impeachment: Trump +39 in the house (Meaning right now Trump will be impeached with a 39 member difference for impeachment).  
Senate Trump -2. We think at least two Republicans will vote to remove the president- Senators Romney and Collins with senator Sasse on the fence. 
It's 10-1 against removal (you have to bet 10 dollars to win one if you're betting Trump is removed from office). These odds are subject to change.

This thing you once said disappeared from my head
In the time that it took to be amazed
And this thing you once did might have dazzled the kids
But the kids once grown up are gonna walk away
And your world is gonna change nothing
And our world is gonna change nothing

Please advise what team K Weisman picked this week? I think he is trying to make out that he didn’t lose last week - but needs to keep his mind busy by still playing. Give him a break. Let him back in the pool. Literally.

Making bank on Patriots and Saints parlay. Thanks Rump.

Weisman got beat. He's out. Loser with a lime green Maybach with yellow leather interior and shiny red rims.

It’s not “Lime Green”. It’s British Racing Greene”. Big difference loser.

Plus, it a “Tradizione Beige” interior. Much like a cognac for you jealous car dummies out there.

K-Wize has class. I’ve admired this guy ever since I was a young lawyer and saw him eating lunch at the “family table” at Joe’s with Moreno, Handsman and Postman.

This guy (Rumpole doesn't want names) tools around sobe in his sports car honking at six foot tall Russian models and bragging that he has a cabana at the shore club or reservations at Momofuku or Salt. Puhleeese. My GF is a bartender and she sees the antics of his posse of aging, balding henchmen. Just stop giving publicity to this embarrassment please.

Rumors that the REN (a venue) will have space at MIA are TRUE but not until 2021 which the earliest a lease runs out.
Meanwhile the REN in Kuwait City is killing it.

Don’t be a Dum-Dum.

Why do you think that Maybach Lawyer gets all those court appointed case from Senior Retired Judge Roy Gelber?
