G:TB's Week 16 NFL Picks

Look at Dennis getting us started...now, does anyone else plan to pick a game?

I like Miami -4 at Kansas City and Philly -5 at Washington. I also like long walks on the beach, being tickled just right, and potpourri. I'm Dennis, and that's one to grow on.

Everybody's favorite random drunk, Greg, is back in my neck of the woods for a week or so. And in between pissing in the lobby of the local Sheraton and telling girls he was a minor league hockey player last night, well, we talked a little football. Greg says the Bucs (-3) are locks to beat San Diego today and keep their playoff hopes alive. I say Greg is a no good drunk who may or may not make out with his brother when they're reunited over the holidays. I also watched enough Brian Griese last week to know that the Bucs don't have Frosty's chance in hell (The (snow) man did some unspeakable shit with that corn cob pipe) with him under center. Fortunately, it looks like Garcia will get the start today. So, I'll go against my better judgement and take the Bucs (-3) at home.

I haven't picked two games in some time but I doubt TJ's going to pick any games since he's likely too busy texting Rob about W&M basketball. And Rob's not going to pick any games because he's playing Littlest Pet Shop with his girls (the size of the toys finally makes him feel like a grown up). And Whitney, well, who the fuck knows what that guy is doing. Other than getting drunk on some obscure micro-brew and listening to Springsteen bootlegs whilst masturbating to tapes from this, of course. Admittedly, thats a pretty full day for the old guy so we'll cut him some slack. However you slice it, it means I have to pick another game. Hey, the Texans have been hot lately...and the Raiders have been a pile of hot shit all season long. Looks good to me. Houston (-7.5) over the Silver & Black.

Wait, I'm giving the points, aren't I? Whatever the terminology, we're taking the Pats to manhandle the Cards.

TJ said...

Mark you dumbass...where did my pick and prose go?

Mark said...

It wasn't in the draft when I constructed my picks. Don't blame me because you don't know how to use your email machine properly.

TJ said...

I took the Pats the minute I saw the weather in NE. So Pats (-8) for us.

Mark said...

This Bucs pick isn't working out very well. And I blame Antonio Bryant...and Greg.

TJ said...

The snow in NE really did have the effect expected.

TJ said...

Mark, if you and Greg have the NFL package, catch some of this Chiefs/Fins game.

rob said...

kansas city not cooperating, howevah.

Mark said...

I do have the package. Unfortunately for Greg, he's not here and the cable just went out at his parent's house. Haha...asshole.

zoltan said...

According to the local sports radio schmoes, the Cardinals are 2-19 in their last 21 games in the eastern time zone. I guess they're really sensitive to jetlag? The Pats didn't need the snow to beat the Cards, they had longitude on their side.

rob said...

andy reid is a great big fat person.

rob said...

hey, a jason taylor sighting!

rob said...

jason taylor, devin thomas, fred davis - welcome to bust week on the fox sports.

TJ said...

So much snow in Seattle...

rob said...

sean suisham blows. and jim zorn may be right about being the worst coach in america. brutal decision in a scoreless game.

TJ said...

Fuck you Brett Favre

rob said...

shaun suisham also blows. all the suishams, really.

Mark said...

Right after TJ left his last comment, he heard a knock at his door. It was Tony Kornheiser and Skip Bayless. We won't be hearing from Teej for awhile.

TJ said...

This Jets game is going to kill me before it's over.

zoltan said...

Steve Tasker is apoplectic about Mangina's decision to punt after the delay of game penalty. It sounds like Tasker is so fired up he might swallow his tongue.

TJ said...

This is a clusterfuck of epic proportions.

Jerry said...

Hi TJ!

TJ said...

OK that's creepy.

Jerry said...

Do you want another beer?

TJ said...

Yes. Get you ass off the couch.

TJ said...

OK Zoltan, I need your Bills to beat the Pats next week. Go take Jauron's headset and get it done.

rob said...

i'm stunned the skins didn't find a way to blow that.

Geoff said...

That Skins win really was "one to grow on"...oh wait, no it fucking wasn't...

Geoff said...

According to my crazy gorilla math, that win represents the Skins' largest point margin victory of the season. Chew on that...

rob said...

whoa. and on elimination sunday. how sadly fitting.

TJ said...

SD/Denver next week is gonna be fun.

rob said...

the chargers are that proverbial 'team nobody wants to play'. or would be, if they had a head coach.

TJ said...

We went 2-3 for the week. Now I need to go figure out what we did last week. It's all coming down to Week 17 in this epic battle no one cares about.

Whitney said...

I ask one favor of the New York Giants D all season. One measly time I am rooting for them to shut down a opponent's RB. So far they're giving me a huge middle finger and saying "We're sucking to screw you, Whitney. Take that."

Screw you, Giants. For this, I curse you to an embarrassing playoff loss in your first game.

Whitney said...

Unreal. I now wish for someone else on the Giants to shoot themselves in the ass. And for the entire defensive squad to be caught using PED's so their 2007 title is tainted. And for two of them to get caught in the shower room buggering each other.

At the very least the embarrassing playoff loss looks like more of a reality.

Screw you, Giants.

TJ said...

The standings entering Week 15 looked like this:
Wheelhouse: 37-32-1
Gheorghe: 39-31

House Week 15
3-1-1
GTB Week 15
2-2-1

House Week 16
2-1 (Sunday and Monday night games pending)
GTB Week 16
2-3

Well, here's where that leaves us...
Wheelhouse
42-34-2
Gheorghe
43-36-1

zoltan said...

Nice use of "buggering." No one refers to it as buggery any more.

TJ said...

Whit, guess who scored again...

TJ said...

Quite a ballgame we have on our hands...

zoltan said...

I could really use a Steve Smith (CAR) TD here.

TJ said...

50 yarder in the Meadowlands wind? Does he have a shot?

TJ said...

Overtime here we come...

TJ said...

Stupid fucking Panthers couldn't lose on an OT field goal and cover...nope, had to completely fold and allow a TD. Bums.

TJ said...

Work Jerry just emailed me to say Buffalo got 4 feet of snow yesterday.

And there's more coming today.

rob said...

is work jerry already home for the holidays?

TJ said...

He is indeed...got there Saturday just in time for some epic lake effect snow.

Dennis said...

I can't believe "I" picked against the Skins this week. Damn myself for all eternity...

TJ said...

Yep, it really would be nice if the Skins fan who likes to pick against his team would sack up and put his own name on his picks. It would be awfully big of him.

rob said...

i thought it was nice to see a softer side of dennis.

rob said...

jmu's trying to blow an 18-point halftime lead to seton hall.

meanwhile, tubby smith and john beilein have their teams in the top 25. the big 10's got some seriously underrated coaching talent.
