Great stats RJ. And, trends and history or tradition really is

a huge part of picking a winner. Houston is a much better team

than Detroit, Dallas is a little better team than Washington, and

New England is a lot better than the jets. I think Houston comes

into Detroit ready to play. Last week they didn't practice much

and thought they would crush the jags anyway. They partied big

time on their bye week. I don't think you will see sloppy bone

headed plays from Houston tomorrow. They showed me something

when they beat the bears in that cold rainstorm. They are tough

and they don't like to lose. I think Detroit could give a rip. That

team is a team of free agents looking for more money and any

great effort you see is individual. Houston will Play their A game

In Detroit on turkey day. Watch for the trxans to jump on them

early and whip settings ass. Dallas and Washington will be a real

close game. RG3 nay win this game in the end. And, the Patriots

Ride over to new jersey. How can you fade new England with

Brady against Tebow,Sanchez and the gang. The pats have

plenty of great receivers. New England -6 or 7 is stealing.

Brady will pick them apart and they can run and play defense

too. Dallas will be the only dog that may lose. Houston and

New England will win. The spread will not matter. My opinion

from watching these teams play, and obvious to me who cares

more about winning than anything. That's why Houston and

new England are leading their divisions. Strength of schedule

doesn't really mean much in the NFL. It's the attitude of the

players. They are all good players or they wouldnt be there.

Houston and new England win Thursday. Dallas and Washington

Will be a 2 or 3 point game. Road dog may leave Arlington with

a W. While Detroit and new jersey guys ain't real hungry thursday

night, because they weren't hungrir than their opponents

Thursday morning and evening. Detroit won't beat Houston.

And the jets won't beat the pats. And bama will kill Notre Dame

And it's time. Coach Bryant never beat the Irish. I promise

you if they play for the championship. Bama blows em out.

Problem is. I think USC whips Notre dames ass Saturday.

The Irish is feeling the pressure like a rookie golfer standing over

a 5 ft put for birdie to win the u s open. Take care, roll tide

I meant Dallas may be the only favorite that loses to a dog.

Of course if Dallas does Lose, Jerry may be ready to throw em to

the dogs. I agree with Scott spritzer on LSU. And, Vandy opened

-6 against wak forest. I think that spread is now Vandy -12 or

12 1/2. I still like vanderbilt in that game. I think ga tech is getting

too many points against Georgia. And, it looks like bama will

play brogue forthe SEC. Bama will close Georgia if tech doesn't

do it first. Best game on Saturday as far as a dog fight is the egg

Bowl. Take Ms St +1 over Ole Miss. My best bet of the week.

Anyway, thought I would correct myself regarding the dog and

the favorites take Kentucky +13 against Tennessee, Rutgers + 21/2

against Pitt. I like Stanford to dominate UCLA in a very low scoring

game. The under 52 1/2 is a great bet. Anyway, the Steelers

are hangin tough. Right now, I don't think the 5 or 6 teams rated

betterthan they are want to play em. And, the 49ers are warriors.

They got a great team. Good luck guys and Roll Tide. I haven't

researched this but I think 32 1/2 points is the highest point

spread ever between Akabama and Auburn sinc the beginning

of the rivalry. Maybe the eagles will hire Chizik. Roll tide!
