What's up, guys? Blew from unwrap sports here, um, coming to you on a beautiful Wednesday morning, uh, before the NFL is behind us.
And a lot of stuff when I went down this week.
What unexpected stuff.
At least I believe that we can turn out his I thought it would.
Ah, lot of teams didn't perform to the little I thought they should, um, went to into my picks last week back to back, each attuned to hopefully getting that up this week.
But just a recap.
A couple of things from week for.
Um, Just gonna get this out of the way because I got to get it off my chest.
Get it through Vontaze Burfict.
I don't ever want to see that do play another down in the NFL period.
I won't put it any nicer than that.
He has just come.
He's not a winner.
He's not a champion.
He doesn't bring that to a team.
Uh, and he just wants to hurt people.
It's very clear and obvious.
From the A B hit to the Anthony Sherman hit to the head on Cam Newton to the hit on Jack Doyle.
He just wants to hurt people, and that's that's no.
There's no place for that in the NFL.
There's really not.
You want to hurt somebody? Go bare knuckle box.
That's the way it is.
If you go, main objective is to hurt someone and end their career.
Just go bare knuckle box.
Uh, and anybody who's saying all he led with his hands, he lived with his hands.
Not just the helmet.
Yeah, Okay, dude, come on.
Jack Doyle was down.
And what? His head.
He knew exactly exactly what he was doing, and he smiled after there's no place for that.
I would rather a dude like Antonio Brown who's at least a scum off the field.
I'd rather him get a shot.
Then a guy generally wants to hurt people at at the sport that they love.
You know what I mean? You're not just talking about taking away someone's livelihood, like on the A B hit on the Anthony Sherman head, Um, on the Jackal.
He could have severely hurt.
You're talking about the neck in the head.
You say nothing to joke around.
About what? Why you laughing you know what I mean? And just the fact that you showed no remorse for any of it, and he's been caught juicing.
Um, come on, Dude doesn't deserve another shot.
It is what it is.
I don't want to see him play another down.
He doesn't deserve it.
He's done nothing to deserve it.
And I honestly question John Gruner like that man was a captain on that team.
How is that your captain? How? I don't understand it.
There must be something really wrong in that locker room.
If that man is your captain, please, I'm done with that.
Next thing that disappointed with this week was Matt Ryan and the Falcons.
Wow, Home first, the Titans.
The times you have been extremely inconsistent.
Even marry old is played while I've given him.
Give him crap over the week, e ease proved me prove me wrong last couple weeks that they might not need a replacement there.
I'm not completely sold, but to the point of two before he's proved me wrong.
Um, and I know the Falcons old line is bad, but Matt Ryan has been just as bad.
And I feel like if you're a M V P caliber player the same way I rip Cam Newton.
Um, he had He doesn't have a great online Maybe not has the greatest weapons, but you're still gonna perform.
You're an M V B callable play you wanted M V P.
You've been to a Super Bowl.
How can you not beat the Titans at home and Sam doing not be thes poorest teams at home means overrated and last eight games, and Matt Ryan has just look terrible this season.
Even the game burst my Colts just missing easy passes over the middle, taking stupid chances, just unnecessary risks on Dhe.
He's just not utilizing his weapons.
He has Julio Seenu, Ridley Freeman.
This guy's surrounded with talent, even Austin Opa, who's had some good weeks.
Um, what more does Matt Ryan need? I know the defense's ungrateful.
What more does he need till win games? I don't I don't get it.
I don't know what what else he needs around him to be.
The Atlanta Falcons that we saw in 2015.
I don't get it. Looks like he's in his own head.
It looks like he's almost he always try viewable.
Golf is right now, but at least coughs so much younger.
And we haven't no one really bought into golf like that is a M V P caliber player.
At least I did it.
But when you're talking about a guy who's been to a Super Bowl has been in the playoffs multiple times.
Who's an M V? P like to just can not even show up against, um against the Titans at home and put up 400 yards and empty stats.
Come on, me, that That's just not Matt Ryan that we've seen and honestly eat.
He just needs to figure it out because there's no way with a talented offense like that that they can be losing these games and not putting up puts its one thing.
You feel losing like the Rams 40 to 50.
But that's not the case.
That's not That's not what's happening.
It's struggling to school.
He's not capitalizing on the red zone.
He's not moving the chains, and we'll see.
I mean, at Atlanta's got a good young core.
I mean, maybe they move off.
If he keeps playing like this, I know I would, especially for all that money, but we'll see.
Maybe I parabolic.
But from this point that Ryan has been a shell of himself, and I don't see any signs pointing towards him reverting back to the old Matt Ryan on the next thing.
I want to talk about Kirk Cousins, um, toggled a waste of $28 million.
I like our cousins, but to not be able to be a Bears team that was banged up I know is I know it's a division game.
I know it's on the road, but to just roll so many Chak Down's not look downfield.
And when you do look downfield.
Got hesitant to pull the trigger and you're hesitant to even get the ball.
Town of demon downfield and appeal is probably best flop possession receiver in the game.
You know what I mean it and you're having trouble finding him, and you can't hit him deep.
What? He's open and then you got stuff on dates and then you've got Rudolph and then you have to be the best running back in the game right now with Dalvin Cook and the old lines been better.
I mean, at least they've been better on on the run.
I mean, I don't through seasons the most of any player.
You're getting $28 million on a team that was in the NFC championship without you.
You got to step it up.
I mean, now, demons calling him out like he should.
Um But I just don't know where they go from here.
Where is her cousin? Ceiling? Have we seen it? Is this it? Is he Is he just gonna be a nine and seven guys at the max he can d'oh! And? And you think after he he did some good things with Washington, that he'd be able to come to the Vikings and raise the bar? You know what I mean? And played better than you don't mean that he's ever played before with so much talent around him, But he just isn't that guy.
I did get us clear to see it's 20 because there's so many teams right now.
It's funny, cause I remember when I was younger, it was Peyton Manning's Drew Brees, um, Tom Brady carrying that teams and I was the homes and it was luck keeping their teams afloat.
But Now it's There's so many teams that are good, but they're quarterback is holding them back instead of keeping them afloat.
You know what I mean? It's just it's so weird to see that that complete flip, you know, um, like when the Ravens lose Lama, Jackson always has an interception.
Every time they lose, he has a pick.
It's like when he plays bad, the team plays bed.
I get that, but then you have it where it's like they're a team to adjust.
They play great.
Let that might. Minnesota defense was great on Sunday.
They look like 16 points and you're telling me Kirk Cousins can't show up and put up that much.
How many points? I don't believe it.
It's kind of crazy to see um, and to think the same thing with, like, the Saints like it.
Like I was talking about a second ago with quarterbacks, carried the teams.
It's no longer like that.
Outside of a couple of teams, it's the Saints are so good that they don't even need Drew Brees. They really don't.
I don't want to hear anybody vicinity desperately need him.
They're winning without him on the road and at home, they beaten two good teams back to back weeks.
Um, yeah, I don't know what I mean.
It's horrible of the overall team, but that's why I came to City in the past, so ahead of the rest of the league.
They have a great two great quarterbacks who carried the team even through the struggles.
Um ah, and then their offense is just so dynamic.
I mean, all the paths of strong.
We'll talk about that in a sec.
You know, it's weird to see how it's completely changed.
We had at least four great quarterbacks who would just carry bad teams, and now it just seems like it's such the opposite.
It's great teams carrying bad quarterbacks, and it's a sin to see it really is, um, into the past.
I pat the Pats Game versus Bills is the only game.
Last week I really called just a vote to it tea.
I thought, if the Bills have that man eternal, but they wouldn't even have a shot in the game and they still did so I was wrong about that.
But I said it wasn't gonna be a high scoring game.
It would have been over 40 combined points and it wasn't even close.
Um, I knew that the Pats offense was troubling that the defense would have to carry them.
But, man, they could not get any receivers open.
Edelmann was hurt.
Josh Gordon's route running the show.
He's He's so talented that he's so streaky on his routes and his hands were a little iffy.
They had no Devlin.
The running game has been okay.
They kind of force feed Sony.
Michelle, when the game really came down to Brady making that one that one play that James White early in the game.
Um and that was it.
You know what I mean? That was the whole separated The Bills just couldn't score.
They look good Matt Barkley in there, but the Pats red Zone defense was unbelievable.
In a day, they made a lot of a lot of mistakes in a lot of penalties for a pass defense, and they still pulled it out.
So, you know, man, it's I don't People are really down on the Pats offense right now, and everyone have them write.
People have the right number two in the lead to win the league, but I don't know, man.
If they get one more piece, which I think they should, I wouldn't rule out a manual.
Sanders, Stefan digs even Larry Fitz.
I think if if it's just got the reception record in Arizona, there's nothing really left for him there.
He's gonna be a Hall of Famer and Arizona Ring of Honor guy.
So I mean, I just would like to see him.
I don't want to.
I want to see the pass when I don't want to see that.
But I feel like it's only right.
Larry Fitz goes to a team like that that could use him.
He's so reliable, and I feel like human.
Tom Brady would be extremely.
It's an extremely good fit because of how experienced Fitz is.
Um, well, see what Nicky Larry comes back and they have.
Ah, I think they have a tight and coming back this week, he'll be more of a blocking tight on a pretty short handed.
But Watson, who's older than my grandfather, so you know what I mean.
It's it's Ah, it'll be weird to see.
I mean, they should have an easy week with the Redskins.
That leads me to my first pick of the week, Pats minus 15.
They're gonna come out with the vengeance.
They're hearing everything in the media that did the second best team in the NFC second best team in the NFL.
I looked sluggish.
They don't have as many weapons.
They can't do it unless they get somebody.
Like I just said, Yeah, I think they come out and smoke the Redskins, especially if Haskins plays I.
If I was them, I would keep asking is off the field.
If the Giants were ableto make him look silly for three picks, imagine what Bella Tech's gonna do.
It's gonna be a gross game.
The Redskins defense is, is bad.
Not a complete garbage.
So I think maybe the Paths will have a couple three notes to stop the game.
It will be slow, but again, I think the past just take over and their defense is just They might shut off the Redskins, hold him, hold him under under 10 points.
I fully believe that in my next trick is that the Eagles, minus 13 this week, the Eagles are getting hot.
That was a huge win verse Green Bay.
I know that their secondary banged up, but they're playing the Jets.
They're at home, and I just feel like this is that.
They see the moment now.
Dallas just lost is a little bit of a *** in their armor.
The Giants have a little momentum, but they're not really worried about the Giants.
I think the Eagles really gonna seize the moment.
And I think they have to.
That old line has to step up their receivers have to catch the goddamn ball Casal wants.
Can't do it all by himself.
Um, but he tries.
He cried his heart out.
Well, I think that's an easy one.
I can see the man handling the Jets.
Donald? Um, yeah, they're at home, so they're gonna be very, very comfortable.
The offense is gonna be clockwork and running Game's gonna be very good.
Expect Mile Sanders to get a lot of touches in the middle of the field.
I know Jordan, How is the red zone guy? But I think Miles Sanders will have at least 70 to 90 yachts in this game.
That's my second pick and then third just one If we just talked about.
Even though I'm down on the Vikings, I love them verse.
I don't care if it's at New York, um, another team.
That's kind of being doubted right now.
I think that fuels a team like that on.
I think the defense is incredible, but I think the Giants have really benefited in the last two weeks of playing bad defense is.
So I think this is Daniel Jones.
First time versus experience.
Very, very solid defense on all three levels.
Um, and I think it's gonna be a rough day for the Giants.
I only the Minnesota's only minus five.
I think the wind by a touchdown.
Um and yeah, I just think if they hadn't played so bad verse the best that this line would be way bigger.
But I wouldn't doubt it goes up during the week if anything changes.
Yeah, I see Minnesota just cleaning out the Giants and they're bouncing back.
I think they realize that the divisions too good, and they've already lost two division game this year.
Two, uh, to have a slow startinto lose games.
Two teams that they should be on this is a game that they should win.
They're often should be back on all cylinders.
Dalvin, cook and have a good game feeling to be back to the usual.
You know, me, 10 touches a game that we've seen him.
He's he's just gonna tear it up crooked until look a little better.
But, I mean, I'm not expecting him to throw for 400 yards.
I just think the offense will work because the Giants on great and the Vikings of just the better team.
It is what it is.
I mean, in my last pick, Um, it was tough to pick 1/4 game this week, but the Bills Clough three at Tennessee.
I know Tennessee home.
The defense's look good and Mario does look good, but I think the Bills defense is better.
I think I trust I don't know why.
I just trust the Bills Is a team more than the Titans? The Titans have been much more inconsistent.
Um, and the Bills defense have travelled.
It's traveled, Uh, and I think it Josh Alan does play or whether he does, it doesn't play.
I think Mac Matt Barkley's experienced enough who come in and win them a game on the road, especially versus Team that I'm not sold on.
Um, you know, I think the bill's getting points First, a team that is very shaky.
And I know we've seen the Titans.
They played well, Verse first, good teams.
And they're bad first of its first birthday that you know what I mean.
I like the bills.
I'm riding on the train.
I think there are wild card team and I definitely don't see, uh, more than three or four.
Defense is only better than theirs for shore at all levels that you have my picks for the weak bills plus three, Minnesota minus five, the Paths minus 15 and the Eagles by the star team That wraps it up.
Guys, go check on on rafts. Bullets.
We're the best in the game
