After review I cannot put my faithful Subscribers through a quick rough cut.
I had NO PICKS/Selections for the Turkey Games, but I DID have three(3)LEANS:
1. *BEARS - 2.5 ONLY if Dalton is the QB.
Otherwise I LEAN Lions;
2. Raiders + 7.5.
LEAN Raiders because *Cowboys' O seems broken, not the D. COWBOYS do have some injuries piling up and a ticked off Raiders team might show up.
3. The toughest matchup imo.
Bills woke from a nightmare and found themselves set adrift in the Atlantic Ocean. Nothing in sight. Finally a rescue ship arrives....PATRIOT flag is hoisted on the chaffe...ships get closer for boarding, and Captain Bligh Belichick tells them that they have been relegated to the Brig, 2nd deck below equates 2nd place.
Bills Captain McDermott pleads with Belichick and to no avail.
- Belichick says that they must swordfight twice in the next three weeks. Or else get off his boat and save yourselves....
Every ounce of experience WANTS me to think that Saint's HC Payton can outcoach McDermott, but the Saints are without the gunnery on the Aft Deck....no two left Guards, no RB Kamara, no DBs, their injury list is almost as bad as the Packers and Browns.
I changed my knee jerk LEAN to the Bills.
Yes, Saints lost 3 in a row, and QB Simien is too slow a starter against a determined Bills team picked my MOST pundits to represent the AFC in the SUPE.
Video out sometime tomorrow covering the Sunday/Monday games.
Happy Thanksgiving day to all, this life we live in modern society is great. Much to be grateful for. Just 200 years ago our fellow countrymen had NO leisure time, and eating 3 square meals per day was unheard of except the .05 of the 1 percent Elites. If we wanted to travel just 30 miles it was likely by foot, thus an all day event, inclement weather it was 2 days.
No processed foods and winters were harsh. Crime was rampant back in the day; many "highway robbers" were lurking everywhere.
Reading and writing? Surely you jest. Only that Elite was educated.
Money? 95% of people alive in 1821 never saw a coin or paper note. They bartered or traded bales of hay, eggs, or whatever they grew on their agrarian lands/farms.
Handwashing was a no-no. Only sissies and women cleaned themselves somewhat. Teeth? They all rotted away if you were lucky to live to 40 years of age.
Baths? Ha! Waste that water? Not happening.
Beds? ONE bed slept most of the families. Use your imagination for the rest.
Cold? Get your sorry butt up and chop a cord of wood and light that fireplace, pansie!
Toilet? Sure, you had one about 300 feet at the edge of the woods don't let that black snake bite your cheeks.
3 feet of snow? Stop complaining and crap in the outhouse!
Out of food? Get Pops musket with three bullets and make two bullets count. Aim for small game like a rabbit or squirrel.
Okay I gotta go.
You get the message.
We have it so good. I personally am grateful for all the good things we seem to take for granted.
Enjoy Thanksgiving Day and enjoy the NFL!
