Good Covid19 Sunday Morning. The Virus numbers are up up up. US total cases rose from 50K to 65K. Florida has doubled from 2K to 4.5K and we are confident with our Governor's ability to tell people not to wear masks and go into crowded bars and restaurants that he can drive those numbers above ten thousand again. State court judges are pushing trials to begin, and only the SDFL Judges are ignoring the vox populi and siding with the science. Shame on them for doing the right thing. From Global Warming to Covid to international relations to emergency assistance, we rely on our leaders in 2020 to do it all wrong. As Jerry Seinfeld famously told George Costanza: "If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite must be right."
That being off our chest, we give you a few picks for week six, choosing among a host of games we do not like.
Our Fav is the J...E....T.....S Jets Jets Jets who have embraced the philosophy of our Governor and elected leaders by screwing up everything they touch. Sign perennial All Pro and NFL rushing leader Leveon Bell and unlike any defense in the NFL, they stop him cold. He was released this week, an utter mulit-million dollar failure. Draft QB Sam Darnald number one and they are winless and on pace to have the number one draft pick in 2021, creating rumors that Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence is considering staying at college for his senior year -ala Petyon Manning, rather than be drafted by the Jets number one. The Fins are a monster -8.5 in Miami today. Don't blink. Lay the points and take Miami. BIG WIN AND THERE WAS A TUA SIGHTING AS HE CAME IN AT THE END AND COMPLETED HIS FIRST TWO PASSES!
Green Bay Packers at the Tampa Bradys. Green Bay is getting 1.5 on the road in a year when home field advantage is mostly meaningless. The heat and humidity is not enough to stop Aaron Rodgers from besting a QB who is over the hill, overrated, and cheats when he can get away with it. Pack +1.5
We don't often make picks of certain teams because we do not have a good feel for the team. The Rams, the Steelers, the Falcons and the Panthers are a few of those teams. The over/under for the Steeler/ Browns game is 51. Both teams seem to have their offenses in high gear. Both teams also have top ranked defenses. But we like the over because the Steelers strength is in stopping the run and the Browns can throw and run. So if Cleveland tosses a few TDs, the Steelers have a fast offense that can compete with any team in the league. So take the over and pop and Iron City Light. (Loss)
Two more overs. Ravens over 47 against Eagles (WIN) and Over 46.5 Bengals/Colts. (WIN)
Survivor league: It is week six and we are down to six. Four players are rolling with Fitz and the Fins, while one has the Ravens and one has the Vikes. Just note that the Fins broke Judge De La O's heart and ended his season early last week by rolling the 49ers.
UPDATE: Clay Kaeiser take a loss on the Vikes. Five left.
