WTHWWT – Week 9 (Ray)

Well, it’s back to the grind of churning out a lot these posts. I got a lot wrong this week so I won’t waste anymore time with the anecdotes.

New York Jets 26 Buffalo 17

Buffalo. Buffalo. Buffalo. What happened? You had a chance to pull away a bit from the Jets but let them back in with your loss. You held Favre without a touchdown pass which is good but you just couldn’t get things done. Trent Edwards’ 2 INT did not help the cause either, nor did the pitiful offensive line performance. I really want to see Buffalo succeed but right now, they are acting as another of the many Jekyll and Hyde teams.

Baltimore 37 Cleveland 27

Allow me to issue a formal apology to Mr. Flacco. I do not know what I was thinking picking Cleveland. I am deeply sorry and my condolences go out to you. Ray Rice had 154 yards on the ground which is amazing. Not much else to say about this game. Good job Baltimore.

Tampa Bay 30 Kansas City 27

Come on Chiefs! What are you doing choking away the game! Tyler Thigpen even had a TD reception off a WR reverse pass! It was perfection. You deserve it. Go play the Lions and have 0 fans. Your effort disgusts me, much like Nathan does every time he wakes up in the morning. You allowed Jeff freaking Garcia to throw for 339 yards. Despicable. You’re dead to me Kansas City.

Tennessee 19 Green Bay 16

Congratulations to the Titans for being cemented as worst 8-0 team in NFL history. Man, this team is bad. They are nowhere near contenders. They will lose in the first round of the playoffs. You heard it here first. The Packers cannot play defense worth a lick. For some reason they released Kabeer Gbaja Biamila. That made no sense. Al Harris’ injury is still hurting the pass defense. Atari Bigby should go back to riding pine and let Aaron Rouse play more. This just makes me sick that a team such as the Titans is undefeated when they are clearly a 4-4 team at best. They will get what they deserve. I am sticking to my word — not picking the Titans until they lose.

Miami 26 Denver 17

Now here is a game that was truly disgusting. The Broncos, known for an amazing rushing attack year in and year out, put up a phenomenal 14 yards rushing! That meant the game was on Jay Cutler’s shoulders, but unfortunately those shoulders were able to throw 3 interceptions, one returned for a touchdown. There was so much promise in this team early on, and now they are going down the toilet. At least Eddie Royal got a touchdown today.

Atlanta 24 Oakland 0

Props to me for picking a team to score 0 points. I feel honored. The Raiders were able to put up 77 total yards during the game and only had the ball for 14:45. If anybody can find a more crappy performance, be my guest. It is time for the Raiders to fold and go away for good. Let’s play a little game of Russian Roulette with the Chiefs, Lions, and Raiders. Hopefully, the ball can split, via fission and land on all three teams. I’ve got no problem with deadweight loss.

WTHWWT – Week 7 (Ray)

Well, what do you know? I actually have a great week in picking! Sad thing is I almost changed my Dallas pick to St. Louis, but didn’t. Damn. The Pack crushed the Colts and didn’t allow Peyton to throw a TD. When is the last time that happened? Virginia Tech standout Aaron Rouse had a 99-yard pick-six too! Great stuff.

Chicago 48 Minnesota 41

I have pretty much ran out of stuff to say on the Bears and Vikings seeing as I write about one every week. Both teams need to figure out who they are and stop being inconsistent. The Vikes had more total yards, but Gus Frerotte threw 4 interceptions. That is not going to get anything done. Adrian Peterson ran well, but because of Gus’ stupidity, Minnesota goes down. As much as I don’t like the Bears, I like Kyle Orton, always have. I wonder if anybody remembers Rex?

St. Louis 34 Dallas 14

This is another one of the games I am thrilled to write about. The Cowboys got absolutely thrashed and I got to watch it. Brad Johnson, playing for the injured Romo, was probably the worst quarterback to replace him. He played dreadful and should just go ahead and retire. What is Drew Henson doing these days? Dallas is screwed if they keep getting injuries; the latest is safety Roy Williams who is done for the season. One thing I do want to mention is why ESPN is telling us Wade Phillips job is safe. Of course it is. Why would you even bring that up to Jerry Jones? It is not Wade’s problem that everyone is getting injured. Stop trying to make stupid drama when there doesn’t need to be. Seriously, leave the man alone.
