Sunday Football Open Thread

Dallas travels to the Iggles tonight. Philly is a 3 point fav. I like the Birds (-3).

The Giants have lost 3 straight and looked awful in each game. They host the Chargers today. I like the Giants (-5) to snap out of it.

The Bears host Arizona. Both of these have been impossible to fathom. I'll take the Bears (-2.5) at home. More . . .

The Colts host Houston. The line seems high to me. I like the Texans (+8.5).

Pittsburgh travels to Denver Monday Night. I still do not respect the Broncos. Neither do the oddsmakers, who have the Broncos as 3 point dogs at home. I like the Steelers (-3).

This is an Open Thread.

    Not ready to shift my attention (5.00 / 1) (#2)

    from Stupak to NFL, not that I ever cared about NFL.  

    Nor do I care more (5.00 / 1) (#6)

    about a camel's nose than about covering more people who live here, with or without approval of the Department of Homeland Security, as well as more body parts of the majority of the people.

    Instead, I am to be lulled again by looking at the teevee and the body parts that are covered (but are actually accentuated) by those cute tight football pants as well as by Congress.


    Yeah, but the REAL BCS crime (5.00 / 1) (#5)

    is the shutting out of Boise State. Apparently Boise offered to play ANY BCS team and there are no takers. Meanwhile mediocre BCS teams play non-conference patsies and coast.

    Some talking heads on ESPN (none / 0) (#8)

    were talking about this Saturday - how most SEC teams, especially Florida never travel outside the Southeast.  So tell me again why the SEC is supposedly so good, when they are too scared to venture out of their own backyard but would rather play Coastal Carolina to run up their stats and keep the #1 ranking?

    House Bill Doesn't Exclude Illegal Immigrants (none / 0) (#1)

    This was posted in a previous comment.

    "Currently, there is no prohibition in the House bill against illegal immigrants buying insurance in the exchange, but the White House backs such a ban and one exists in the Senate bill."

    Not a fan of Armpit-Ball but may have to watch ... (none / 0) (#3)

    ... just to see a football not yanked away but actually get kicked.

    Pats beat Miami (none / 0) (#9)
    by CST on Mon Nov 09, 2009 at 08:39:45 AM EST
    Which shouldn't be that big a deal, except Miami has a history of beating the Pats, even when the Pats are winning like crazy and Miami is losing like crazy.

    Bring on the Colts.  Always one of the most exciting games of the regular season.  Ready to see that undefeated streak come to an end.
