NFL 2014 Week 14 Picks & Analysis – FootballSunday, December 7, 2014 9:25
Picks and analysis for Week 14 of the 2014 season.
NFL WEEK 14
The Second American Civil War Continues…
Another depressing week in America.
Another copper goes free after murdering a guy who may have been selling cigarettes and not paying or collecting the appropriate taxes.
I feel safer. How ‘bout you?
Another cop with a track record for excessive force “test-a-lies” to a grand jury, without cross-examination as if he were the victim.
Then, pouring vinegar on the open wound, Pat Lynch, the Policemen’s Benevolent Association president holds a presser on national television hailing the murderer as a “model officer” and “literally, literally, an Eagle Scout”—then accusing New York mayor, Robert De Blasio of throwing the cops “under the bus.”
Well, we know if the bus transports murderous badge toting thugs like Darren Wilson, Daniel Pantaleo and 60+ cops who fired 137 rounds into the windshield of a Cleveland couple who were speeding—we know the bus must be a very short one.
These psychopaths—and others who anonymously murder civilians every year are crazy with power, pickled in steroids, and/or mentally unstable. They have convinced themselves they put their lives on the line every day. They demand the public afford them a level of respect because of that daily sacrifice.
Yo, assholes—you serve us, remember? If that mandate doesn’t supersede your obsessive fear for your life, get the hell off the job—you’re a disgrace to the badge.
Watch Mr. Lynch’s press conference. It is a chilling answer as to why cops feel justified murdering citizens—especially if they’re black or brown.
You might notice Mr. Lynch’s repeatedly says he simply wants everyone to consider only the facts—without emotion, or politics, just the facts ma’am…
Fact: The approximately 800,000 American cops on the job volunteer to perform a relatively well paying, too often thankless, yet mostly very safe job. 27 were killed in 2013 if you believe the FBI. 27 too many? Certainly…But, depending on your Google results being a cop barely cracks the top ten most dangerous jobs in America behind Fishermen, Farmers, Airline Pilots, Construction workers, Miners, etc…
Fact: Many sources conclude America can typically expect only between 300-400 incidents of law enforcement officers firing their weapons at persons annually. Since most jurisdictions do not report stats to the FBI database, most reasonable people placed the number at three or four times that accepted rate…Uniform reporting to the FBI might be a good first step to gauge the true extent of the danger irresponsible cops pose to America.
Fact: In America, less than 10-15 percent of police officers will ever draw and fire their weapons at another person — in the entire course of their career…
This rant, this anger, is not aimed at police officers who hold themselves to the highest standards, it is meant to insult, offend, and anger every punk cop who believes murdering people is the first, best option—and the two-bit jerk-offs who defend those murderers.
And make no mistake folks, just like rape isn’t about sex, gangsters with badges like Darren Wilson and Daniel Pantaleo have nothing to do with positive community policing or being effective, respected, careful PEACE officers.
Unlike 99.8% of their brethren who do strive to serve the communities they police, thugs like the Cleveland cop who murdered a 12 year-old playing with a BB gun care only about protecting the power we give them…and justifying it after they commit murder.
In an earlier column, I alluded to the first shot of the Second American Civil War being fired in Dealy Plaza …The battles of the ‘60s in Chicago, Kent State, and throughout the terrorist South took the lives of great leaders named King and Kennedy. Soldiers remembered only as innocent children in churches with plantation names like Evers or Jackson, were lynched, or blown to pieces.
Their murderers never answered for their crimes.
Unless Daniel Pantaleo and Darren Wilson are put in jail by the USDOJ, they will never answer for their crimes.
The Wall Street thugs who nearly destroyed the world economy, the 60 Badge Gangsters who executed that couple—137 rounds through the windshield—for speeding in Cleveland, Wilson, and Pantaleo, all have several traits in common…
- They are white…
- They all enjoy elite societal status due to wealth or position…
- They have all escaped justice for terrible crimes…the most common offense, by far, the murder of young Black men and the mentally ill.
Listen to NYPBA prexy, Mr. Lynch throughout his presser…He perpetuates an imagined “Fear Culture” that drives some of his unstable brethren to murder people with darker skin, those with less identifiable problems, (the mentally ill), or those who pray to “lesser” Gods—and justify doing so as “part of the job.”
These Elite, White, Terrorists like Lynch and the murderers he defends fear justice from a society every demographer sees as becoming darker.
That society will some day hold these American Terrorists accountable for their crimes. Ultimately, what they fear most is coming—their take down—like Pantaleo’s “take down” of Eric Garner as described by NYPBA President during his presser.
Go to the 14:50 mark of Lynch’s press conference held after the Staten Island grand jury’s decision. I was watching TV that evening-and it wasn’t The Daily Show. As Lynch was explaining—flat out lying is a much more accurate term—about the “seat belt maneuver” Pantaleo took Garner down with, the video of the actual murder was playing under Lynch’s lie. Stevie Wonder could see Pantaleo’s arm DIRECTLY around Garner’s neck…
America you are at war with delusional fanatics.
Arm yourselves—they won’t surrender peaceably.

GAME OF THE WEEK 6 – 7
LOCK OF THE WEEK 5 – 9

PREMEIRE PARLAY 2 – 1 CUMULATIVE O/Us 33– 24
OVER/UNDER OF THE WEEK
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS @ PHILADELPHIA EAGLES – 1 49 [U]
Vegas is so good picking figuring out the spread, I did a little experiment last week. I predicted what I thought would be the final scores in my four Specials before the gangsters set the Numbers. I wasn’t trying to guess what I thought the Totals would be, only a well-reasoned prediction of what each games final score might be.
I was close on three of the games.
For example, the ‘Hawks invade Philly in what I thought would be a “pick-em” game and a must win affair if either team wants a division title and any hope at a first round bye.
Chip Kelley seeks to control the pace of the game, but not necessarily limit the other teams time of possession. In fact his team ranks a mere 48 seconds from dead last in TOP, yet the 2014 Eagles have run 32 more plays than their nearest competitor.
Philadelphia dictates a lot more than just pace:
- The Eagles field the best conditioned team in the league—on both sides of the ball–immunizing them from the “no-huddle” chaos other teams struggle with on defense.
- The Bald Birds rank in the bottom five in percentage of possession time through three quarters—in the fourth quarter they have the ball for less time than only four teams.
- When it matters most, Kelley’s teams are fresher and run more offensive plays in less time than most of their opponents—who are running on empty by the fourth quarter…
How much does all that matter when you’re playing against the NFL Champs? Kelley’s control of the game’s flow can hide the sizable warts of an inconsistent defense and the eternally unproven Mark Sanchez.
We believe Sanchez was smart to get out of New York, never possessing offensive weapons he could count on when he was a Jet. He has weapons now and protects the ball better than he did in the Big Apple.
The Eagles have chopped 30 yards off their average rushing yards given up in their last three games. Russell Wilson will have to pick it up to exploit a pass defense giving up 280 YPG—and an against an Eagles defensive line averaging 3.5 sacks a game.
We’ll gladly give the point and take the home team…
Eagles 27 Seahawks 21
UPSET SPEC IAL
BALTIMORE RAVENS @ MIAMI DOLPHINS – 3 45 [O]
The only Total of any of our Week 14 Special that was a bit off the mark was this baby. Even though the Dolphins have the look of a team getting hot at the right time, they have averaged giving up 177 yards on the ground in their last three games.
They don’t get star points for beating the Jets via a late field goal.
Justin Forsett is licking his chops—along with Joe Flacco and Steve Smith Junior.
Ryan Tannehill is the X-Factor . If Miami is going to take their game to the next level, they have to win home games against, well-coached, battle-hardened teams like the Ravens.
The Fish could pull this one out on a late field goal, but Baltimore will cover the points—Haloti Ngata’s absence makes the Over a juicy play here.
Ravens 30 Dolphins 20
GAME OF THE WEEK
PITTSBURGH STEELERS @ CINCINNATI BENGALS – 3.5 47 [O]
Depending on which quarterbacks show up at Paul Brown Stadium this game will showcase two improving, good teams who have both overcome a bevy of injuries, too many penalties, spotty defense, and perhaps, too high expectations…
…Two underachieving teams with iffy coaching, lacking discipline and leadership…
Big Ben has broken records this year. He has also broken Steelers fan’s hearts.
I heard several experts on Sirius NFL radio tout the Bengals as the “better team on paper.” What paper have they been reading? Cincy is 18th in yards gained per game and 21st in yards given up. The Steelers have risen to 12th on defense and have a top three offense.
Cincinnati has a superior return game, and the Bengals, relatively speaking, can afford a loss because they lead the division and get a rematch in week 17.
More importantly, the teams the Bengals faced who they figured they should beat—they did beat. The Steelers have lost to the Bucs, Jets, and looked overmatched against a seven-loss Saints squad. Just like the Dolphins need to prove they can handle a big time opponent, the Bengals have to get on a roll and show the league—and themselves—they are capable of winning a playoff level game.
On Sunday, the Striped Cats get yet another chance to kick start that process.
Big Ben won’t let that happen. His poor play last week gave the Saints the game before a too little, too late come back attempt from Pittsburgh. Ben will make up for it this week—and the Steelers will continue to confound their fans and the experts
Steelers 27 Bengals 21
LOCK OF THE WEEK
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS @ SAN DIEGO CHARGERS +3.5 51.5 [O]
These are the games Bill Belichick wins; his Pats are 36-3 coming off a loss.
These are the games which justify some of the accolades he gets. From a tough loss in Lambeau Field, the Pats chartered straight to SoCal. The warm weather and hot women probably made Green Bay a lot easier to forget—and 3-4 focused, intense practices easier to pull off.
The Chargers and Phillip Rivers belong in the same inconsistent category as Pittsburgh, Cincy, and about eighteen other teams.
This game is the Chargers’ Super Bowl. The Patriots will be called failures unless they win the actual Super Bowl.
Of course, the outcome of that game is up in the air. This Week 14 match-up?
A near blow-out win for the visitors, way over the Total.
Patriots 33 Chargers 24
