Really quickly, I forgot that yesterday was Thursday..so allow me to put up a shameful picks for week 8. First we must talk about last week and why I almost quit watching football. I took a gamble and paid off with the Eagles pick! The Vikings are not going undefeated. This was my second huge prediction, but then the rest of the day was blah, leading to the worse game in history…The bills lost to the dolphins, yet they can beat the Patriots? WTF Rex…Just screw you! Chargers keep the Falcons’ losing streak going, and Big Ben’s injury gives Steelers the loss. Now let us talk about the Seahawks game. Two-flipping-chances, two kickers, twenty yards and we end on a tie? Seriously…Two kickers missed twenty yard field goals….Just stop it…oh my god, it’s real! I know that kicking isn’t easy, but these guys are getting paid a crap load of money, but they can’t make a field goal the same distance as a PAT? Get out of here! My new record is 51-37-1……

Redskins @ Bengals

Winner- Bengals

Cardinals @ Panthers

Winner- Cardinals

Note:….This was hard to pick for, neither team is showing what they started last season, also Carson might be back. Other than that, I don’t think Panthers D is good this season.

Lions @ Texans

Winner- Lions

Note: I stood for the Osweiler signing. I didn’t understand the amount that they gave him, since he never played in their system but I was slightly happy and hopeful for him, I was wrong. He is struggling hardcore and he is the reason that they are losing. He has one of the best WR in the league, yet can’t get him the ball. I hope he gets better, but I see Geno Smith when he plays.

Seahawks @ Saints

Winner- Saints.

Chiefs @ Colts

Winner- Chiefs

Jets @ Browns

Winner- Browns

Note: Yes, the Browns get their first win, this week. Fitz is back and he is horrible, he will be the reason they lose.

Patriots @ Bills

Winner- Patriots

Raiders @ Bucs-

Winner- Raiders

Chargers @ Broncos

Winner- Chargers

Packers @ Falcons

Winner- Falcons

Eagles @ Cowboys

Winner- Everyone! But seriously, Cowboys.

Note: This is going to be an amazing game. There are four different things on Sunday night, but I want to keep tabs on this
game. It’s rookie vs. rookie. Which rookie will play better? Wentz or Dak? I have to stay with Dak. He is showing something rare, he looks like someone that has been in the league for years. Wentz has been playing amazing, also, but I say his defense will let him down. It’s going to be a race to the finish and whoever tires down quicker, losses. 

Vikings @ Bears

Winner- Vikings

We all have that one fantasy, or something that we would really like to do. I know in my lifetime I want to see the Chicago Cubs actually win the World Series. This being said, this season looks to be the best chance they have, well until they started this series with the L.A. Dodgers. They have dropped their last two games, making it 2-1 and sadly putting them in the position to lose this series, since the next two games are in L.A. Now, let me clarify; I am not a Chicago Cubs fan, nor will I ever jump off my Royals. I am just excited to see history being made, which is what would happen if they did win the World Series. I went as far as promising something crazy if they do win.

I know I am in no position to negotiate with God, nor was that my intention. I just thought it was a good idea at the time. I recently posted to Facebook after the Cubs got shut out for the second straight game. The status said “I will finish my youth pastor studies if the Cubs win, because then we will know that God does exist.” I am being very serious. If the Cubs win, I will study the bible like never before, I will get some kind of certificate (somewhere in the future,) and I will become the thing most want me to become; a youth pastor.

Now, don’t expect me to do this all at once. Clearly I want to get back into studying and going to church and such. But it will eventually happen. I could be Jenkins (Jinx) it, but I thought this would get the Heavens to help the struggling Cubs, also I might as well finish the education I started.

The Chicago Cubs are on their way to get eliminated, and it’s all because of their batting. Their defense is what kept this team alive, thus far. But now without their batting abilities, we could see the cubs out in the next two games. Their hottest hitters (Rizzo, Russell, Heyward, Fowler and Zobrist) have only hit 12 out of their last 109 appearances (Playoffs). If it weren’t for Montero hitting the late grand slam, off the bench in game one, we could be looking at a 0-3 deficit. The Cubs have the pitching, disregarding Arietta’s horrible outing to win this, but something has to come back alive; their bats. They will need to find some hope in their bats and turn them back on. You can’t expect to not hit well and beat the L.A. Dodgers. The Cubs need to get their five big hitters back on track, or they might as well pack up and go home.

We will have to see what the future brings but I think we could still see history being made, this season. It’s not a big deficit, but they have to get back on their game. This is where we will see if the Cubs are the real deal. They have the talent, they just need to find a way to put it together and go after it. Cleveland will be waiting for the winner, lets hope it’s Chicago.

Congrats to the Superbowl champions!

It started as a great season for both of the teams. Their defenses were carrying the teams throughout each of their opponents, but one team did something the other couldn’t, keep a healthy Quarterback. Peyton Manning got benched with a foot injury, giving Brock Osweiler the ball and the chance to take his team to the playoffs. Though Brock played spectacular, when Peyton Manning was ready to come back, Brock lost the starting job. Most called this a publicity stunt, but the Denver Broncos want to give the Veteran his one last shot. Will this be Peyton’s last game? The signs point to yes, through the season, one thing is evident, Peyton is worn out. Never have I seen Peyton throw so many short passes, his spiral is gone, and he isn’t reading the defenses the same way. But tonight he ended the game as the grand champion, that is what is important. 
Cam Newton is going to be a great Quarterback, he will perform at the levels of Drew Brees and Tom Brady. He is quick on his feet, but can also drop back and hit the deep bomb. The Panthers have a great squad that will be in the playoff picture for the next couple years. They have great targets on offense, such as: Olsen, Ginn Jr., and Steward, and an amazing defense that is young, which is what they have been building for years.
Though the Panthers lost tonight, their defense still played to win, Cam Newton couldn’t get it going, on the offensive side, though. They gave all they could and left everything on the field. The defenses worked all year for their moments, and they didn’t disappoint. Each defense caused crucial turnovers, that kept both teams in the game.  I knew that the defense that got tired last, would be the team to win. Congrats to the Denver Broncos on winning Superbowl 50! And to Peyton on his 200th game win, and his second ring! Best to your future!
