A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Big Big NFL Weekend!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on January 16, 2021

I honestly wouldn’t bet a dime on any of this weekend’s football spreads (besides the $20 I’m throwing at the NFLBBB). I could see any of these teams covering. Please also note that the KC and NO line never moved or wavered from 10/3. I feel vindicated by not bowing to the public pressure to add a fake hook on those lines.

also, if you’re interested in what the sharpies are up to:

I know I said the deadline for entries in KO first game but I’m going to be busy then so I will be cutting the contest entry time to some time this morning (PST). You’ll know when that is when I upload all the entries into this thread. I think we have 8 playing right now.

________________________________________

Ok, just as I did last week, here is the email I sent to my daughter with the time stamp on it confirming that I was the first to get their picks in without seeing any other entries first:

here are the rest…….

Mr. Sports Dude: 193 GB, Balt, KC, TB

San Diggity Dog: 194 GB, Balt, KC, NO

Current reigning champion Mac Dog: 216 GB, Balt, KC, TB

Unca Chuck: 228 Rams, Buffalo, KC, TB

That Fucking Clown: 199 GB, Balt, Clev, NO

GiantHead: 209 GB, Balt, KC, Saints

ChiPower: 206 Rams, Balt, KC, NO

8 contestants playing for $160…..

    Dog and me both going high numbers again.

    Dude and I damn near an exact match.

    Fyi Dude I have a 2:20 at Westchester (right by LAX) with my son and his buddy today. Our 4th dropped out. Text me if you want in. (Longshot, I know)

    • Flavor said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:01 am

      oh man bombing some drives with you today would be awesome! At least until that 3rd beer kicked in, right? lqtm

      • sandog said, on January 16, 2021 at 9:04 am

        I was flashing back to that fateful day yesterday! We have Santa Ana conditions down here and it was 90 degrees on the course. (School was cancelled due to high winds)
        I was definitely telling myself to stay away from the Bud Light!

    Happy Birthday to Murph. Sixty some odd years with the Giants, dat dude deserves a big ass statue.

    • Flavor said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:22 am

      you guys finish off the rest of those oysters?

      • Bozo said, on January 16, 2021 at 9:02 am

        This afternoon for apps before the ribeyes. That sauce you mentioned the other day is just butter and garlic, throw that on them let em flame up a bit, toss a mix of Parmesan and Pecorino Romano cheeses, add some more butter and then you eat them. Even if you aren’t an oyster fan I bet you’d go for these bad boys.

    • xoot said, on January 16, 2021 at 10:22 am

      Didn’t they fire him last year?

  5. willedav said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:28 am

    idk Giants offseason disappointing, in that they didn’t do much to improve pitching or offense. Petty dispute with Solano over $600K is bad biz. So was not offering Gausman good enough deal for 2-3 years to keep him beyond this year. Right now he is best they have.
    Giants issue is the prospects aren’t ready yet and won’t be for 2022 either. So in order to get closer to even a WC spot they will have to find multiple players, starting with SPs (biggest area of need) CF and SS. The $$ isn’t the issue, it’s finding better players for most of rotation and half the lineup including most of IF on open market.

    Kapler did OK with what he had, getting them to near .500 Seems like taller issue this season especially given lack of vet presence in pen, handling of whom isn’t his strong suit. Better player or 2/3 would have made him seem lot smarter, like it does for all mgrs.

    • Flavor said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:43 am

      the only thing I have a strong feeling about is that our pitching staff will be decimated by injuries this year. Most of those arms look ready to pop

      • James said, on January 16, 2021 at 2:01 pm

        Very good chance of that, but if 3 of the 5 can each somehow get to 150 innings, I’d bet they’ll also be performing pretty well.

  6. unca_chuck said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:47 am

    I’m the only one who took Buffalo?

    • Flavor said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:54 am

      That’s wild

    • Bozo said, on January 16, 2021 at 9:05 am

      And, I’m the only one who doesn’t think KC will cover the spread.

  7. Macdog said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:54 am

    Flav, I sent an email with my picks to you yesterday, can I still get in?

    • Flavor said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:55 am

      You’re in man you’re listed up above

      • Macdog said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:56 am

        Nice, I like that.

    • Macdog said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:55 am

      Oh, oops, I missed “Current reigning champion,” never mind.

      • willedav said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:59 am

        Yes, just like Loo’s Chiefs, defending champion til someone knocks you off. Last week went down to wire in wild Browns Steelers game. Exciting to sort out though game outcome meaningless.

    • Flavor said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:55 am

      “current reigning champ” precede your name

  8. Macdog said, on January 16, 2021 at 9:02 am

    Only 4-4 split is Saints-Bucs. The rest: Packers-Rams 6-2, Ravens-Bills 7-1, Chiefs-Browns 6-2.

  9. Bozo said, on January 16, 2021 at 9:06 am

    No picks from Loo?

  10. alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 11:05 am

    I don’t see how the NFC teams can ever compete against the AFC teams in many future Super Bowls. All the talented young QB’s are all in the AFC..Mahomes,Allen,Jackson,Herbert ( yes he will be a stud) Burrows,Mayfield? Then u bring in Lawrence another AFC QB the young studs are all in the AFC.
    What’s the NFC have? And I’m not talking the relics,Rodgers,Brady,Brees,Stafford who are almost done.
    I guess just Wilson&Murray,Watson and Prescott if he bounces back ok, anyone else?

  11. alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 12:33 pm

    Cooper Kupp inactive today for the Rams ( knee)
    Huge loss due to being Goff’s safety valve all season.
    Doesn’t matter no way Rodgers is going to lose to Goff in cold weather, he’s the best cold/snow QB alltime!(Honorable mention to Brady I guess)
    To combat Aaron Donald I can see Rodgers doing no huddle, hurry up, to keep the Rams from substituting and wear them down.Adams/Ramsey should be a great matchup but I’m going with Adams to win the battle..

  12. Bozo said, on January 16, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    Not snowing in GB, damn.

    • alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 2:40 pm

      Snow no Snow Doesn’t matter how Hot Rodgers has been..

  13. Macdog said, on January 16, 2021 at 3:13 pm

    Rams having trouble vs. Aaron, and not just Rodgers.

  14. xoot said, on January 16, 2021 at 4:02 pm

    Wait. Wait a minute. Sorry to break in. but I just realized that ibm is using mike singletary as an embodiment of intelligence in its football game tv ads. Wtf?

    • alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 4:18 pm

      Only if he can coach Winners!
      Yeah Singletary has hit rock bottom, cant even get a NFL assistant gig anymore..

      • xoot said, on January 16, 2021 at 7:59 pm

        Wtf?

  15. Flavor said, on January 16, 2021 at 4:21 pm

    Chuck and Chi take an early seat at the back of the bus with this GB cover.

  16. alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 4:21 pm

    Lezard makes up for his dropped TD earlier with that 58 yard beauty to wrap it up as happy feet Goff just takes the 4th down sack.

    • Flavor said, on January 16, 2021 at 4:31 pm

      surprised Rodgers have him a second chance. Usually he shuns you for the rest of the game if you drop a ball that bad.

    • Winder said, on January 16, 2021 at 4:35 pm

      kat- Lol, you should be an announcer. that was beautiful.

  17. Macdog said, on January 16, 2021 at 4:32 pm

    Pack cover. After one game, on pace for 200.

    • Flavor said, on January 16, 2021 at 4:36 pm

      thank God. I was waiting for this, thank you!!!!!

  18. Flavor said, on January 16, 2021 at 4:38 pm

    Chuck needs Buffalo something fierce here…..

    • alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 6:19 pm

      Yep a win ties him up with everyone else, a loss and he’s cooked..

  19. Flavor said, on January 16, 2021 at 5:17 pm

    oh boy, someone made him mad!

  20. Macdog said, on January 16, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    Bills kicker wide right.

  21. alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 6:13 pm

    While the best FG kicker ever percentage wise misses 2 straight,go figure..

    • Macdog said, on January 16, 2021 at 6:17 pm

      Double doink!

  22. alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 6:42 pm

    No way this Baltimore/Buffalo game hits the 49.5 over score..

  23. Bozo said, on January 16, 2021 at 7:09 pm

    Damn.

  24. unca_chuck said, on January 16, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    Fuck. No Kupp no glory for LA. They neutralized Donald. I thought he would bring much more than nothing.

    This game? ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz……. My points are fucked as well. Giving money away.

  25. unca_chuck said, on January 16, 2021 at 7:23 pm

    Yeah, baby!!!!! Game got a little better.

  26. Bozo said, on January 16, 2021 at 7:23 pm

    Fucking hell.

  27. alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 7:25 pm

    Wow a 14 point turnaround on a 101 pick 6!
    Chuck’s feeling pretty good about now 😂..

  28. unca_chuck said, on January 16, 2021 at 7:26 pm

    Balt is not really a come-from-behind team. But I ain’t jinxing anything.

  29. alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 7:30 pm

    Chuck I can’t believe u would of picked Rams anyway? Donald was hurt coming in, Goff is Goff who sucks and has broken thumb with 3 pins in it and playing in cold weather where most west coast teams suck at, throw in Kupp out and no chance..

    • unca_chuck said, on January 16, 2021 at 7:35 pm

      I figured they’d keep it close enough with their defense. At 25 – 18 and LA had the ball in the 4th I felt pretty good.

  30. alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 7:32 pm

    They look done now, especially if Jackson is out..

  31. unca_chuck said, on January 16, 2021 at 7:35 pm

    Wow. Having problems at the center spot.

  32. unca_chuck said, on January 16, 2021 at 7:51 pm

    Damn. I needed those points. Maybe the Bucs/ saints is a 55-49 affair.

  33. unca_chuck said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    Shit. Balt scores here, the Bills don’t run at all, so they will be hard-pressed toi run the clock out.

    Bills letting the Ravens back in the game by laying off the backup.

  34. alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    But they don’t and it’s over for the Ravens as Chuck crawls back into the hunt!

  35. unca_chuck said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    Grand total of 70 points so far. Fuck me.

    Dude is looking pretty solid with the lowest total. Dawg missed by 1!!

  36. Macdog said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    We’re halfway there. Bills cover. Total points . . . 70, on pace for 140.

  37. Macdog said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    With Unca the lone Bills winner, no one will go 4-0.

  38. alleykat69 said, on January 16, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    Yeah Chuck you can move up to the middle of the bus 🚌 now but your going to need some arena football scores tomorrow…
