Can’t lie: Dave got the sniffles pretty good about halfway through and it’s not that easy to listen to. Wild Card Picks: Raiders & Lions to cover. Seattle & maybe Raiders for the win. Pittsburgh all day and strong lean towards Giants against the spread. Happy New Year, y’all!
Pod opens with a lament for the Chargers, who must have goat-mouthed themselves. A deep dive on the end of the Ryan (Rex & Rob) era in Buffalo, Chopper, and a concerted attempt to navigate the furious reverse line movement you only see at the end of the regular season. Happy New Year!
As the regular season wraps up, value reappears. The challenge: trying to figure out if any teams have already started to mail it in. Like, for example, the Jets. Or the Browns. On the other hand, lots of presents for the Bears and Texans, a little for the Vikings. Chopper’s still upset.
Pour one out for Jeff Fisher, whose blessed run of futility has ended. Seattle is up next, but who we really like is Kansas City and Tampa Bay. Rob has some good Santa stories. Dave hits the piano loop a few times.
A new podcasting system has Dave a little power mad. Chopper sees a MAJOR upset coming on MNF. Rob sees some dogs barking, and some big plays. This is the episode you’re going to tell your kids about.
