Last week: 9-7
Overall: 125-65-2

Jags @ Titans. Jags rebounded off their horrible slide with a win on Sunday over those pesky Colts, but on the road and a short week I'll take the Jackyl & Hyde Titans team at home where they have some pretty good wins so far this season....Patriots, Eagles with the Cowboys on the road.

I'll get the rest of the week in later on

I think this is the first week all season that I have taken the Giants. Call me crazy, but I'm just not sold on Sanchise.

SO the Big Cat's House (NOT the CATHOUSE) is decorated for Christmas, the gifts are all wrapped,there is Christmas music playing on the TV ...and so I thought I would start early with the Christmas picks.
And WY NOT? The Stores have been doing it since August! And YES I am going to say "Super Bowl Re-match!"

So to start ♪ ♫
You better not laugh You better not smile
You better not Grin I'm telling you why
Roger Goodell's Coming to town

He takes all of the fun out
Of what was once a game
And sends our guys to London
To try to play and makes the league so LAME
Better not laugh You better not smile
You better be sad I'm telling you why
Goodell's taken fun out of the game.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++

Jags at TITANS
Twas Thursday night and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring and we do not have a mouse
The children were nestled all snug in their beds
While visions of Playoff Teams danced in their heads
And my old lady in her Victoria Secret PJs and I in my Dolphin Sleep pants had gone to bed early
Because we get tired on Thursdays
When what to my wandering ears did appear but my son waking me up saying

SO down the stairs I came and said OH NO
Kid REALLY? These teams both Suck! This is the bad game of the century
Well maybe not THAT bad It could be worse
The Raiders and Jets could be on like a curse......
SO back to bed I went
and Turned off the TV
And dreamed sweet dreams of Sunday TV


FALCONS at Susan's Packers
Oh yeah I am just beginning
Phil Philbin.....really? He already got chased out of Miami......That is pretty bad And the team is falling apart? Guy Lombard HAS TO BE rolling over in his grave at all this

♪♫ The White snow of Winter Fall gently on Lambeau Field
The Birds from Atlanta wait for a game to be sealed
the great Guy Lombardo is turning over
In his snowy grave
But Here in green bay I think we can say Philbin---iii--in
Is going to yield


SAINTS at Buccaneers We were Going to go. That is We WERE Going until my redneck dog brother decided not to come in to town giving us no reason to go short of entertaining a guest and Saints fan.
SO There being few places I can tame him out in public, one being a football game Instead


GIANTS at Redskins While we are Referencing Piracy,Redskins now have 2 quarterbacks needing peg legs for the time SO Dirty Mark Sanchez will be the QB which means a win for Eli Eli NO!!!!!!
Panthers at BROWNS Hang in there good people of Cleveland.....Santa will bring you a winning team next year when baseball season starts.
Eagles at COWBOYS
Twas the Night before Christmas where in the trailer house
The roaches were scampering and running from a mouse
The Stockings were hung by the back door with care
In hope that they'd smell less if they got some fresh air
Jerry Jones was nestled all snug in his bed;Dreaming of winning in side of his head
When all of the sudden there arose such a clatter
It sounded like fireworks or gunshots for that matter
When suddenly Santa CLaus burst in
Saying I have " Jerry Jones' Medicine
For his bad skin
And pills for his ego, he thinks he's so great
And his memory loss is getting worse of late
But the Cowboys are winning and that's a bad thing
Hope the eagles can fly and end this whole thing."


STEELERS at Raiders Bring back the SINGING men of STEEL No this is not a joke There used to be a group of steelworkers who formed a choir, actually held concerts and recorded a few songs. Pretty good too


================================================== ==========

Detroit Rock City Lions at Colt's PESKY RED BIRDS Matt Stafford should do the right thing and give some of his $913 Million salary back at Christmas. He has not earned it.

Ravens at CHIEFS This is a must win situation for the Birds, as the Steel Curtain is falling and a chance exists for the Ravens to move into first place.

As for the Chief's former running back Kareen Hunt, who is out of a job and onto the NAUGHTY LIST
♫ 1, 2, 3, 4!
You're gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
'Cause You ain't been nothin' but bad

I Kicked my old lady in the head
Somebody snitched on me
I slapped her around in bed
I stole Coach Reids slice of Bread

Here is one We are hearing a lot this year in Miami
"O Tannehill O Tannehill, your passes disappoint us.
O Tannehill O Tannehill You make us want to Cu-uss
You hit the ground when you run
And throw away just like a bum
O Tannehill O Tannehill Your game really Dis-Gusts."
How about a little Country Music for the good folks in Texas?

Houston..... Houston means that I'm one step closer to you
Where are the Oilers?....
What is this team in The red and Blue? ♫

OK seriously The Texicans are riding a 9 game winning streak and I do not see Good , Goode , and luck ending it on the road this week.


Jets at BILL's BUFFALOES Battle of the Rookies to see who gets to lead their team out of the cellar and into eventual AFC East domination after the Evil Patriots are gone
Bengals at CHARGERS
sung to the tune of Little Drummer Boy
Come they told me dumb dumb dumb dumb
We're moving to L. A Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb.....
They do not want us in San Diego...All 4 or 5 fans say we're Bum Bum Bum Bums
Bum Bum Bum Bums Bum Bum Bum Bums
SO to them we bite our thumbs
Dumb Dumb Dumb

We have no fans it seems dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb
We are a poor team too Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb
We play on a soccer field where
Nobody Comes
Nobody Comes
Nobody Comes......
SO let's play our game for Crum Crum Crum Crumbs
And see what becomes.

BRONCOS at 49ers
I remember enjoying this one when I was a younger cat. Of course, I always loved seeing the Broncos get smashed in the Super Bowl. Final Score was 49ers 55 Broncos 10 The Broncos will avenge the loss today.
RAMS at Bears

I had a chance to chat with coach Sean McVay in line at the grocery store and he said
♫ All I want for Christmas is a Super Bowl Ring
A Super Bowl Ring
A Super Bowl Ring♫

Well, Santa is listening
================================================== ====
Vikings at SEAHAWKS When I pick them they lose When I don't they win
You know IF You put a beard and the right clothes on Pete Carroll, he would still be Cool Enough to be

♪ Santa, Santa
Surfin' Santa
Santa, Santa
Surfin' Santa

He wears bright red baggies, with a sloppy shirt to match
A snow black beard and a candy stripe hat
He rides on his surf sleigh that's red and green
It's pulled by his reindeer, Jan and Dean ♫

Jags at Titans-I think the Titans will win this, so I'll go with the opposite of my gut feeling since it's a TNF game. My picking record for TNF games has been historically bad. Of course my overall record this season has been terrible. Yes, I remember the Titans beat the Jags earlier this season, but I think the Jags could eke this out since they have Fournette back.

Falcons at Packers-Now that McCarthy is gone let's hope the Pack knock it off and start returning to the business of winning football games. Falcons have a matador defense that's just begging to be carved up. Hopefully Rodgers does so with surgical precision. He's getting paid $134 million to do so.

Saints at Buccaneers-Saints will avenge a week 1 loss as Drew Brees smokes a Winston!

Giants at Redskins-It is still possible to win the NFC Least with an 8-8 record, so the Giants need to win out. They are a hot team winning 3 of their last 4 and starting to play like I thought they would at the beginning of the year. And I gotta pick them here going against the walking butt fumbler. Losing Alex Smith really did put a dagger in the Skins season.

Panthers at Browns-I keep picking the Panthers and they keep burning me, so maybe I'll give the Browns a chance. They're a much better team in front of the dog pound.

Eagles at Cowboys-This isn't likely given how Jerry's boys have been playing. It's just a wishful thinking pick since I get physically ill if I pick the Cowboys. The motivation is there since the Eagles can join the Cowboys atop the NFC Least with a win. Fly Eagles Fly!

Steelers at Raiders-After losing 2 in a row, the Steelers start another winning streak to close out the season against the Gruden Grinder and his tanking JV Squad.

Lions at Cardinals-I can't believe I'm picking the Cards here, but they earned my pick by winning at Lambeau last week. I just don't trust Matt Stafford, Jim Bob Cooter, or the portly Matt Patricia anymore.

Ravens at Chiefs-One of the most explosive offenses goes against one of the best defenses and I think the offense will prevail at Arrowhead. I don't think Lamar Jackson can hang with Patrick Mahomes when it comes to putting points up on the scoreboard.

Patriots at Dolphins-Obviously I'll take the dark side here. They're not gonna lose again until homefield advantage is clinched.

Colts at Texans-It's hard to believe the Texans started out 0-3 given that they've rattled off 9 wins in a row. This should continue against the Colts who couldn't score a single point last week.

Jets at Bills-I'm not picking the landed Jets the rest of the season. They've lost in 6 in a row. I'll take Buffalo at the Ralph in an ugly squeaker.

Bengals at Chargers-Homeless Chargers may not have homes, but they sure do get a lot of handouts. Bengals will give them another easy win with Andy Dalton, A.J. Green, and Hue Jackson on the sidelines.

Broncos at 49ers-As of right now my Niners are on track to get the number 1 pick in the 2019 draft, so hopefully they don't start winning. Broncos will continue to cruise with an easy victory in Santa Clara as they play themselves into the playoffs.

Rams at Bears-It looks like Trubisky will be returning for this and that increases Da Bears chances for winning exponentially. I think Chicago will play with a chip on its shoulder. They don't get the same respect that the Rams, Chiefs, Patriots, and Saints get I believe this will be a statement game for the modern Monsters of the Midway who might be able to slow the Rams down enough in a cold-weather game at Soldier Field.

Vikings at Seahawks-I haven't been right about much this season, but I did nail Kirk Cousins not bringing the Vikings anything but mediocrity. They're destined for 9-6-1 and on the bubble for the 2nd wild card. They're clearly not a Super Bowl team. This has to be Pete Carroll's best coaching effort yet. I didn't expect the Seahawks to be in the playoff hunt this year, but they're sitting pretty right now.

Going with Tennessee for the win

They should win but my gut thinks other wise........dam Jags always seem to win when they are the underdog by a large margin.

Will catch-up with the rest of my picks later.

Good luck everyone

The NFL needs to stop the Thursday night games before more players get injured. Otherwise they need to give each team a bye before they play them and that is easier said than done.

Aside from that I would not be surprised if Week 17 games are only played in the afternoon (1:00 and 4:25 PM slot) and no Sunday night game for that week like they did so last year
