Editor's Note--Welp. A "meaningless" hail mary by Detroit stopped another perfect weekend for the Big Man. But he is still bristling with FLAMES. Again. How about those neeeeeeeeeeeeed teams that didnt show up??!! Again....How about we got NFL playoffs. Wild Card Weekend! Hello Again Indeed, Big D. Helloooooooooooooooo!--R.B.
As Al Michaels said when that pass was completed with 0:00 on the clock on Sunday night, "That was OVERwhelming". Nice one Al. Right to the gut for us. HOWEVER, that was after 2 winners during the day. So if we are scoring at home, which we always do, that's 5 out of our last 6 with the loss being that aforementioned infamnia. You wanna wager against us? Do so at your own risk. Here we go.....
Are the Steelers the 1970s Steelers this year? Hardly. Then how on earth are they laying 10.5 points to MIAMI? MIAMI with the strong running game and good defense? And MIAMI a bit warm in the covering department (Including our LOCK OF THE YEAR a few weeks ago in "chilly" Buffalo). Richie B tells me there is a VERY confident bunch getting ready in South Florida. And they are aghast-- aghast we say--that this Pitt team would lay double digits when they got to play 6 games versus Baltimore, Cincy, and Cleveland this year. Take the YUUUUGE points pal. We're all DOLPHIN fans on Sunday, baby.
And we dont do this often, make 2 plays in one game, but these teams go OVER more than you think. Big Ben seems to play WAAAAAY better at home than he does on the road. Yes it will be cold. Yes it is winter. But we smell points, handsomes. Plenty O' Points. OVER in Steel Town.
Finally, you know what's happened the last 2 times the GMEN had to go into Green Bay for the playoffs? Yep. They won that game, and ALL the others friend. Yep. Super Bowl Champs both times. This GIANT defense is playing out of its head the last few weeks. Did you see what they did to Washington last week, when the Skins neeeeeeeeeeeeded it? Smashed em. Yes, we are aware the Pack is as hot as anyone. But that 4.5 points looks so sneaky. Smashmouth, old time football, goes to NY in this one. Takey. Take.
So the happy again recap: MIAMI+10.5 @ Pitt, OVER 46.5 Pitt/Mia, NY GIANTS+4.5 @ Green Bay.
And here's New York's own legend. Say Hello Again to your bookie. Good luck and god bless.
