Horrible line play, dubious calls, never-ending lawsuits: football felt more like a courtroom drama than sport. So we took a step back. But then we remembered how much we like gambling on the NFL and here we are, regressing once more towards the mean. Picks for all games except Colts / Titans because why bother.
After solving all US political problems offline, Rob and Dave try to geek themselves up for Super Bowl 51. Heads and Vissers are with the Patriots; Dave’s going with his heart (and his girlfriend’s pick) for the Atlanta Falcons. We laugh at the Raiders, because the more things change . . .
** PS- for reasons unknown, terrible, horrible echo kicks in on Dave’s take after the Chopper comes in. It’s the audio equivalent of watching a Jeff Fisher offense for 16 weeks. Please be assured we have taken this error to heart and will have a really sparkly post-Super Bowl pod for y’all. **
After 19 weeks, we’re down to two potential Super Bowl matchups. Green Bay and New England seem to be on a collision course, but Atlanta does have some fans, and the line is a bit of a head scratcher. Chopper checks in with his take of the year. See you on Snapface!
Nobody believes in the Texans. Us either. We like the remaining three games to be close, being eternal optimists, but like both home teams to win on Sunday. While we both like Seattle to cover, Dave still likes Atlanta to win. Still can’t tell if he’s being honest or goat mouthing the Falcons. Plus: Chopper, and the Chargers give San Diego the final kiss off.
