It was worth staying up for the 4th quarter but I really should be asleep. I'm supposed to be on a train in like 4 hours and I didn't manage a pregame nap.

Man what a great defensive performance by my Phins last night. Where has this team been the entire season. The offense is still shoddy, we're missing Parker & Fuller plus we got no running game because the OL is trash. But I'll take the win.

Good for Gruden! The NFL collected over 650K emails on their Washington investigation and somehow only Gruden's emails leaked, right in the middle of the season. That smells shady as hell. I bet if Goodell's emails leak or any big executive they would all be out of a job. I bet they have said worse things than Gruden.

They will probably settle out of court but I really hope Gruden brings down the entire house with him.

The discovery phase will be amazing. Gruden better not settle.

He's got a point. Maybe he was a total wanker but so is the commissioner apparently. Get em both!

Nobody here's mentioned Cam returning to the Panthers :p I think that's about right...

Here are my predictions for this week.

Baltimore over Dolphins: I'm such an idiot for failing to pick my Phins for the 2nd straight week and they won. I deserve nothing less than 1 star
Bills beat Jets: The Bills wake up from their sleepwalking and bury the Jets
Bucs beat Washington: Brady after a bye week against one of the worse defenses in the league, easy pick
Cowboys beat Atlanta: Dak has a strong game and the defense shows up. Atlanta is outmatched
🍕Titans beat Saints: Titans keep the train rolling, even without Henry. Edit.. I put a pizza there meaning the Saints could upset the Titans. That's my potential upset for the week
Colts beat Jacksonville: I like the Colts in this matchup, they can put up points and the Jaguars are too inconsistent
Steelers beat Lion: 0-17 for the Lions.... It could happen
Browns beat New England: I like and I want the Browns to steamroll Bellicheat. Don't let me down Cleveland
Chargers beat Vikings: I like the Chargers here, Minnesota is on a 3 game losing streak. Make it 4
Arizona beats Panthers: Not even Cam can right this sinking ship. Murray or Colt, this is a Cardinals win
Broncos beat Eagles: The Broncos keep the momentum going and beat the wildly inconsistent Eagles
Packers over Seahawks: Anti Vax but alpha male Rodgers beat the Vax but no sex until marriage Wilson
Chiefs beat Raiders: Who the hell knows with this matchup. Let's just hope the Chiefs figure it out
Rams over 49ers: San Francisco got destroyed last week by Colt fucking McCoy. Nuff said

I've had a brainflash homies, I'd like everyone to put a 🍕(pizza) next to one prediction each gameweek that they think could be an upset, and we'll add pizzas to our collections of symbols for those of us who guess right!

Edit:

Further guidelines.
I'm going to say you can double up, which it to say you can predict the upset and then also say this is your upset for the week, and you'd get a tally and a moon for it.

This week I'm gonna back the Pats and put a pizza on them to upset the Browns.

But it is okay to go against your own bet too, if you think it's a chance, it's not strictly hedging a bet because they're seperate point systems. Ne?

So for example last week a smart, smart man would have put pizza on the Jags.

Sorry to hear that brother, see you when the time's right
I appreciate it. It's not the level of the other week when I lost my grandfather. I don't need to fly across the country. It just threw me off and was unexpected. I need to take a bit tomorrow to deal with family. I won't have time for football.

Good luck to everyone else though.

Late start for me as I was watching that fantastic F1 race. Sky are showing saints/titans as the main game so it's gonna be red zone for me!

The game gets more entertaining the heavier the snow gets. Helps that I love watching snow fall so I could cheerfully watch just that for hours.

next week: "Is Mahomes still a favourite to get into the HOF?"
It's now generally accepted that Patrick Mahomes is past his best. What analysts around the league are working overtime on working out now however is whether or not Mahome's exploits to date are enough to justify inclusion into the Pro Football HOF.

"It's touch and go," says Dirk Dirkler, "he's certainly got the YPA and PTD and STD numbers up the wazoo to suggest that, if he'd just stayed on target, he might have broken all manner of records, and there's still a chance that he may throw, what, 20-odd TDs for the rest of his career? The problem is his hands now phase through the football and that's never a good sign for a QB."
