Gator's-BaitDon't worry folks gators head is starting to swell. He thinks one week makes him the king. Tune next week as this article will "Correctly" be titled Crunkin' in my gator boots . bait
So far on the season Crunked is 7-7 against Gators and Gators is 12-2 against Crunked. Gators is 30-16 for the season in his predictions thread.
Sunday, Oct. 2
Gators- Buffalo has screwed me the past two weeks in my picks. New Orleans has been equally disappointing the last couple of weeks. At least they are semi-close to home this week. Buffalo lost their heart and soul of their D and the Saints will try to use their balanced offensive attack to capitalize on it. In a “Losman looks like Adam Sandler and plays like him too”
Saints 27 Bills 13
Bait- I wish gator would leave his sex life "Buffalo has screwed me the past two weeks" out of these football picks, but what are you going to do, a gator is all teeth with a little bitty brain. Buffalo is hurting right up the middle, but it wont matter the Saints don't run the middle, but Losman is on the rookie slip and slide so vulnerable D, vulnerable O, playing at home for the Saints, New Antonio-leans, Louisi-exas.Advantage Spur-aints!
Saints 13 Bills 6
Gators- Denver was very impressive against the Chiefs on Monday night. Jacksonville pulled off a close win against the Jets last week. Pryce had a monster game and the offense started to click. The only problem is they have to go up against arguably the best D-Line in the NFL. Last year the Final was 7-6. I’m looking for a little more offense this week. In a “Jimmy Smith has to take ballet classes to make that catch last week”
Jags 17 Broncos 14
Bait-Jacksonville will murd-alize these guys with muscle, that is my first reaction. Then I start to think about The Denver Browns and wonder if Shanny has all the holes in what was a sinking week one ship filled. I don't like to say it, but I think he has, chop blocks negate girth, speed erases size, unless of course you run smack dab into it, Jacksonville can be challenged deep so If Shanahan plays it right he should be able to keep them guessing, the unkown is will Jax give in to Freddy and Run, run, run? Nah....I think they will mix it up it will be a nail biter in Florida, advantage home team.
Jags 14 Denver 13
Gators- Tampa Bay has put spinners on their new Cadillac. They have been amazing so far. Detroit had a bye last week and the ineptitude of their division has propelled them into 1st place with a 1-1 record. Joey Harrington’s time is running out and a win this week would help his cause against an elite 3-0 team. “Keep that clock running Joey”
Bucs 20 Lions 9
Bait-The well rested versus the well played, this is the week boys and girls where Harrington finds himself in the fetal position in front of thousands of rowdy Buc fans. It will happen in the third quarter at or around his own twenty. The Vegas line has the best odds on inside the 10. In a Ridin' spinners special
Bucs 35 Lions 3
Gators- At the beginning of the year, the Texans circled this game as a potential win after opening up against the top 2 D’s from a year ago. Well this could very well be their toughest task so far. The Bengals are loaded on offense and their young D players have stepped up big time. In a “Texans got the #1 pick a year early”
Bengals 31 Texans 10
Bait-This one will be a laugher for Cincy, I can hear it now, "don't hit him we can't get the pick unless he throws it" This just in, Carr was sacked 3 times while I typed this preview. Get an offensive line, or hire the POPE as your O-coordinator, you need a man of the cloth for something that hol-ey.
Bengals 42 Houston 17
Gators- There is a rumor that Peyton Manning is appearing on milk cartons in the Indianapolis area. His brother Eli has 2 games that equal Peyton’s TOTAL for the season. Colts fans aren’t disappointed though because they are 3-0 because of their defense. The Titans were impressive last week against the Rams by almost pulling out a win against them. They will look to slow down Edge this week with their awesome run D. In a “I’m bound to get it right one week, Peyton will explode”
Colts 151 Titans 17(major over exaggeration, but Crunked will be happy for the first time in 4 weeks
Bait-17 points? no I would be honked off, what happened to my single digit defense? Anyway, this is a divisional game and those are always tough, its on the road against the former south heavyweight. In a we hate them more than they hate us upset on side kicking 3 rings circus complete with Wally the wonder weasel and painted dancing midgets special.
Titans 10 Colts 9
Gators- Both teams are coming off of emotional wins last week. I hear that Tomlinson has moved ahead of Phillip Rivers in the QB depth chart with his TD pass last week. Is there anything that this guy can’t do? New England will try to find what it is. They will desperately miss Rodney Harrison, who is out for the season with torn MCL, PCL, and ACL. In a “At least Harrison didn’t tear his BCL, CCL, or DCL”
Patriots 27 Chargers 20
Bait-Eeeeeeemmoooootttttiiiiiooon the Pats don't have time for no stinkin' emotion just win baby focus on one and move on to the next, right? Well come on give me an amen from the back row if the Patriots have too many injuries to overcome......(crickets sound effect) Ok, in a home team wins ugly whilst everyone is getting iced down to reduce the swelling special.
Patriots 24 Chargers 23
Gators- There are 2 shocking things going into this game. 1) The Skins are 2-0(trust me, I’m more shocked then you ) and 2)The Seahawks receivers are catching the ball. Seattle has the #2 offense in the league, while the Skins have the #4 D in the league. Someone is going to budge. It’s going to be interesting to see how Brunell comes out after his emotional comeback 2 weeks ago. In a “There’s no way the Skins can go 3-0 is there?”
Skins 17 Seahawks 13
Bait-Remember gator=lots of teeth, veeeeery little grey matter. He is homer pickin' here; Seattle in a yawner. Psst, gator good D, good O, good-bye 2-0 Hello, 2-1
Seahawks 24 Redskins 17
Gators- St Louis won a close game against the Titans last week, while Eli got rattled with booing. Well Eli is home this week and the Bulger is going to look to throw it 40+ times again. Plaxico needs to step up his game, I just got him in a fantasy trade last week. In a “Eli stays ahead of his brother”
Giants 35 Rams 24
Bait-Hello Mcfly? Martz will find a way to make sure this game close, but if he was a better coach this would be a blow out.....there I said it, now make it so...
Rams 35 Giants 27
Gators- The Jets took a big blow as they lost their QB Chad Pennington. The Ravens continue their struggles. This has the makings of a great QB duel between Brooks Bollinger and Anthony Wright! Please don’t ask me who either of them are, because I don’t know. “Who’s gonna win? If you said Wright, then you are right”
Ravens 3 Jets 0
Bait- Hold on I am still laughing at the score gator has there; and in a not to be out done by a reptile special I want to add both teams have a good defense so the spread couldn't possibly be that wide...somebody say, "SAFETY!"
Jets 3 Ravens 2
Gators- Dallas picked up a great come from behind win against the 49ers last week. They proved that the late game collapse against the Skins was a fluke. Oakland has had a very tough schedule and are 0-3, but that can’t last forever can it? Sebastian Janikowski is trying his hardest to keep the winless streak alive(damn Seminoles ) In a “Daunte 1 Moss 0, through 3 games”
Raiders 31 Cowboys 28
Bait-Weird, I agree with gator on this one, Janny doesnt cross the white line, and Oakland gets its first W.
Oakland 35 Dallas 24
Gators- Daunte was surprisingly the best QB last week. Whoever predicted that is a genius.(hold the applause). Too bad his glory will end here against DeAngelo Hall and the Falcons. Micheal Vick will play and quite frankly that’s all the Falcons need. In a “RUN RUN RUN RUN”
Falcons 38 Vikings 21
Bait-Sorry fans, I don't think either one of these teams are serious about winning; this one wont even be close, its just a matter of guessing who will win in a blow out, well Vick has a good arm for running and Minnesota has a good middle for outside rush. If that makes no sense to you then you see my point.
Vikings 31 Falcons 13
Gators- David Akers was the feel good story of the week as he kicked the game winner on an injured hamstring. Donovan McNabb was the week before, so who’s next TO? The Chiefs got completely embarrassed on national TV last Monday. They will want revenge. In a “Arrows shoot down Eagles”
Chiefs 45 Eagles 17
Bait-Donovan has a hernia Akers has a hammy Westbrook has a broken contract and T.O. has an attitude. On the otherside, KC has a black eye from their embarassing loss last week. In a why the AFC rules special.
Chiefs 31 Eagles (somehow) 24
Gators- Is anyone going to be watching this game? Last year the Niners beat the Cardinals for their only 2 wins of the season. The Niners already have 1 win, while the Cardinals are winless. This is the first regular season game in Mexico. In a “The Tides have turned, Cardinals are last years Niners”
Cardinals 23 49ers 21
Bait-My name is el conquistador. Vive le Mexico, a whole bunch of people get together to watch the worst America has to offer.....If you need me I will be at the Chalupa stand getting a Margarita on the rocks. Ok enough, making fun. Denny gets a W or a coronary, I vote W. now for that Margarita....
Cardinals 23 SF 21
Monday, Oct. 3VS.
Green Bay at Carolina 9:00 p.m.
Gators- Possibly a good matchup for Monday Night at the beginning of the season, but the underachieving Packers and Panthers match up with a combined 1 win in 6 chances. Brett Farve is really forcing things trying to end this streak. He just needs to let it flow. The Panthers beat the Patriots, but they have been a whole different team in their 2 losses. In a “Brett and 0-4 shouldn’t ever go together”
Panthers 31 Packers 10
Bait-Panthers in a redemption win for Crunked, according to me the Panthers are 2-1 winning their two losses and losing their lone victory, so I-AM-Their-KISS OF DEATH *smooch*
Panthers 21 Packers 20
BYE week'ersChicago-Admiring Cadillac and wondering what if they drafted him instead of Cedric Benson.
Bait-Calling tampa asking if their Cadillac came with spinners or if that was sold seperately
Cleveland- Admiring Kellen Winslow in a wheelchair.
Bait-Painting little triangles on their helmets so they look like pumpkins for next month, calling it a throwback look btw.
Miami- Admiring Cadillac and wondering what if they drafted him instead of Ronnie Brown.
Bait-Saban just benched the waterboy and activated his back up in a crack the whip week special
Pittsburgh-Admiring its Roethlisberger with Hines. (there won’t be a single week that I don’t add this joke to Pittsburgh )
Bait-Foo-fing injuries and boo-boo's from their Patriot slugfest so they will be ready to bring the pain next week.
