He has $100 mil reasons ($59 mil guar) to be happy

It’s back ladies & gents! The 1st of 17 Sundays are here. Every guy loves these moments. That’s when they get their moment to spend their Sundays glued to the tube & some wives hate it because it kills into their quality time & some wives love it because some may follow the sport as well. A lot of things have changed since the Seahawks won the Super Bowl and lot of legal power moves recently by Roger Goodell before the regular season started w/ Josh Gordon’s suspension upheld, Aldon Smith getting hit w/ 8 game suspension & today w/ Jim Irsay suspended for 6 games for his DUI. Forget bout the offseason troubles, let’s talk some action which starts on Thursday.

Thursday

Green Bay vs Seattle- The champs get to open up the season & celebrate their title w/ the 12th Man against a great opposition in the Packers. Things were going up for the champs after the Super Bowl w/ Richard Sherman getting paid w/ a contract extension & being the 1st cornerback to make the cover of Madden along w/ his ESPY’s Hell, even Russell Wilson got drafted by the Texas Rangers in the MLB draft & played a lil spring training. For the Packers, nice draft w/ them selecting Clinton- Dix, however losing Raji for the yr is going hurt them in run stopping. They still have Aaron Rodgers & I wonder if Eddie Lacy’s going have a sophomore slump. It’s going be an intense battle & the Packers almost beat them in the Link couple yrs ago hadn’t the replacement refs screwed them on that Hail Mary play. To this day, I still think Golden Tate pushed off. The champs are 6 pt home faces. I like the champs to open w/ a win & take the points

New Orleans vs Atlanta- A great divisional rivalry here. The Falcons missed the postseason last yr while the Saints made it to the divisional round before losing to the Seahawks. For the Falcons, life after Tony Gonzalez since he retired & they’re looking to improve after that yr. Everything went down hill when Julio Jones got hurt & it made Roddy White’s job harder & tougher for Matt Ryan. The Saints are most experts pick to win the NFC South because they think the Panthers are going to drop off this yr. Brees got his money last yr & now Jimmy Graham got his this yr. BTW Jimmy, remember that you can’t dunk the ball over the goal post & they hit your pockets this preseason. It’s gonna be a close game. Saints are fg road faces. I like the Falcons to defend their house & win by a fg. Matty Ice never loses at home

Cincinnati vs Baltimore- AFC North battle. The Bengals are the defending champs in the division, but lost in the wild card game. That made it 2 yrs in a row for Andy Dalton & A.J. Green. They gave Dalton a contract extension, but he hasn’t won a playoff game yet. Very Romo like. For the Ravens, rough off-seaon w/ 8 players getting arrested in the offseason, including Ray Rice for domestic abuse on his then fiancé/ now wife. If you think that was stupid, Goodell gave him a slap on the wrist w/ a 2 game suspension. So expect Bernard Pierce to get a lot of carries & Joe ‘CM Punk” Flacco to carry that team. Close game here. Ravens are 1.5 home faces. I like the Bengals by a fg.

Buffalo vs Chicago- The Bills get open on the road vs a determined Bears team who are still pissed bout blowing that opportunity to win the NFC North on the final game of the season. For the Bills, the sophomore yr of EJ Manuel & will he stay healthy? They drafted Sammy Watkins & had to say good-bye to Stevie Johnson. The defense is still intact, except for losing Byrd & Petitine taking the Browns head coaching job. For the Bears, year 2 of the Marc Trestman era. They are neck to neck w/ the Packers for the division. Brandon Marshall (who is on my fantasy team) is so high on Cutler expectations that he predicts a MVP season for him. He has a great sidekick in Alston Jeffery & the offense will be ready. Bears are a td home have. I like the Bears & the points.

Washington vs Houston- We saw the Texans making moves recently by acquiring Ryan Mallet in a trade w/ the Pats. They better hope that solves their qb issues & makes Andre Johnson a happy player. He’s been frustrated lately & I probable feel bad for Arian Foster because they lost Ben Tate to free agency, which means a lot of carries for him. Expect their defense to run roughshod w/ Jadevon Clowney & JJ “100 million dollar man” Watt. For the Redskins, it depends on RG III & can he stay healthy this yr. New coach for the Skins & the off-season stories for the Skins were the acquistion of DeSean Jackson & the league begging Snyder to change the team’s name, which he’ll never do. It’s a toss-up here. Texans are 2.5 home faves. I like the Skins by a fg.

Tennessee vs Kansas City- Yr 2 of the Andy Reid era kicks off for the Chiefs at Arrowhead. They won’t have Dwayne Bowe for the opener since he got busted for marijuana arrest in the offseason last yr, but they still have Jamal Charles & Alex Smith will be relieved after getting a 4 yr contract extension. For the Titans, it’ll be different for them since they won’t have Chris Johnson in the backfield. They better protect Jake Locklear in yr 3 of his career. Chiefs are 3.5 home faves. i like the Chiefs by a td.

New England vs Miami- AFC East battle here. Gronk has been given the green light to play & that makes me happy because I have both him & Tom Brady on my fantasy squad. They are coming off losing to the Broncos in the conference title game. They improved on defense & they will always own the AFC East until someone knocks them off their horse. The Dolphins are nice. I like Tannerhill & I respect Kameron Wake & his prowness. Game’s in South Beach, so expect the Dolphins crowd to be fired up. Pats are 5 pt road faces. I like the Pats & the points.

Oakland vs N.Y. Jets- The Raiders open up on the road vs a Jets team who will have some problems in the secondary. The Jets were lucky to finish 8-8 last yr despite Geno Smith throwing 12 tds & 21 ints in his rookie yr. They picked up Eric Decker in the offseason, but the secondary took a hit w/ injuries to Dee Milliner (high ankle sprain), Dexter McDougle & they cut Dmintri Patterson after he went AWOL in the preseason. For the Raiders, a lot of people expecting good things from them this yr. I like the fact they’re starting Derek Carr over Matt Schaub because Schaub underperformed in the preseason. They acquired Justin Tuck & Maurice Jones Drew, plus they took a chance to resign McFadden for a 1 yr deal . It could be a dull game & it could be a great game. Jets are 5.5 home faves. For some reason, I like the Raiders to steal this game at Met Life by a Sea Bass fg.

Jacksonville vs Philadelphia- The defending NFC East champs get to open yr 2 of the Chip Kelly era vs a young Jags squad. For the Eagles, they hope that Nick Foles doesn’t have that sophmore slump & they better hope the departure of DeSean Jackson doesn’t affect the receiving corps. i know Macklin’s returning & getting Darren Sproles takes the pressure of LeSean McCoy, but Jackson was their home run hitter. For the Jags, I don’t know why they are going to wait to start Blake Bortles later in the season. It’s about rebuilding for them. Why watch this game? Eagles are 10.5 home faces. I like the Eagles & the over.

Cleveland vs Pittsburgh- My childhood rivalry opens up in Heinz Field this week. For my Browns, Hoyer’s the guy by default because they think Manziel’s not ready. However, no Josh Gordon kills us. He made the Pro Bowl last yr, but in the words of Stephen A Smith, he couldn’t lay off the weed. I like the Ben Tate pick-up as well as Karlos Dansby, but the front office screwed up by not drafting a receiver when you knew they might not have Gordon available. I still respect Justin Gilbert, but still mad that you passed up on Sammy Watkins. For the Steelers, they missed out on the playoffs last yr & Ben Roethesberger has taking a beating the last couple of yrs. I wonder which rb (Levon Bell or LeGarrette Blount) is going miss this game after their arrests. It’s a rivalry game here, so it will be hard hitting. The Steelers are a td home fave. You already know who I’m picking. Browns by a fg. #THELAND

Minnesota vs St Louis- This will be an interesting game here. For the Vikings, new coach, Norv Turner as offensive coordinator & Matt Cassell starting at quarterback, beating out Pounder. I wonder how Adrian Peterson feels bout this. He likes Turner as coordinator because it means he’ll be catching passes out the flats & if Cassell fails, here comes Teddy Bridgewater. I think Bridgewater will be starting by week 8. For the Rams, tough off-season & preseason. First, making history by drafting Michael Sam, the 1st gay player in the NFL. The preseason saw them losing both Sam Bradford (torn ACL) & Isaiah Pead to season ending injuries. To top it off, they cut Sam. He played good in the preseason, but it was a football decision. In my opinion, they didn’t want the distraction. It was bad enough he got cut, but not invite to the practice squad was ridiculous. At least the Cowboys are gong show him love. Expect a hard nose grind out game. The Rams are 3.5 home faves. I like the Vikings by a fg. I trust Matt Cassell over Shaun Hill.

San Francisco vs Dallas- Fox’s game of the week. The 49ers have been in either in the conference title or Super Bowl the last 3 yrs since Jim Harbaugh has took over as coach. Off season saw Kaep getting crazy paid, Vernon Davis & Alex Boone holding out on OTA’s & now Aldon Smith getting hit for a 8 game suspension add along to Ray McDonald’s arrest for domestic violence. He’ll miss some time. For the Cowboys, Sean Lee tearing his ACL in mini-camp was a big blow to a defense that was last in the league last yr. Jerry Jones still crying that his son passed up on drafting Manziel, knowing they still have to pay Romo, who’s coming off back surgery. Last couple of yrs, they have been mediocre, finishing 8-8, coming down to the final game of the season & piss the division title away. If they finish 8-8 again & no playoffs, expect Jason Garrett to lose his job. Expect some ratings for this game. 49ers are 4.5 road faves. I like the 49ers to win & take the over. For my buddy Leticia Robinson, it’s that time of yr again when it’s Cowboys bashing. I know your uncle is a 49ers fan, so the bashing will be coming from both directions (family & friends)

Carolina vs Tampa Bay- The Panthers will be looking to be the 1st team in a long time to repeat as NFC South champs. They will be facing a Bucs team who will have nothing to lose this yr. The Panthers lost not only to the Niners in the divisional round, but Steve Smith as well to the Ravens. Cam Newton has no receivers returning from last yr. He better use his feet to avoid pressure this yr. At least the defense is still in tact. For the Bucs, Lovie Smith’s the new guy in town & it’s like a homecoming for him. He was a defensive coordinator for them before he started to coach the Bears. He’s the inventor of the Tampa 2 defense. It will be a hard nose game. Tampa’s a 2 pt home fave. I like the Panthers by a fg. I trust Killa Cam before I trust Chad Henne.

Randy:

Indianapolis vs Denver- The defending AFC Champs will try to forget what happened to them in the Super Bowl when they host the Colts in the Sunday Night contest. Both teams got hit today w/ suspensions. For the Colts, Jim Irsay gets a 6 game suspension plus $500,000 fine for violating league’s personal conduct policy while the Broncos won’t have Wes Welker for 4 games after he tested positive for amphetamines. The Welker one was crazy because he was coming off a concussion he suffered in the preseason. i was teasing that Peyton Manning was gonna get Welker killed w/ a pass in the middle of the field. Speaking of Peyton, coming off 51 tds last yr, but he couldn’t get anything going vs the Legion of Boom in the big game. Decker’s gone to the Jets, so expect the Thomas bros to expand their games & great pick-up w/ the TJ Ward signing. For the Colts, yr 3 of the Andrew Luck era. Reggie Wayne’s back from the ACL tear, but the running game is suspect. Will they get anything from Trent Richardson? Browns fans thinking they made the right move by trading him. Old gun vs young gun. A lot of yards here. The Broncos are 7.5 home faves. I like the Broncos & take the points.

Monday

N.Y. Giants vs Detroit- The Lions & G-Men open up the Monday night schedule in week 1. Both teams missed the postseason. For the G-Men, Eli’s coming off ankle surgery, Hakeem Nicks gone, Andre Brown’s sudden retirement & them learning the West Coast offense will make it a long season for them. For the Lions, they are being looked over in their own division even though they have a great defense w/ Suh & Farley & as long as Calvin Johnson’s on the field, he’ll catch anything Stafford would throw to him. Lions are 5.5 home faves. I like the Lions & the points

Randy:

San Diego vs Arizona- The Chargers & Cards end the week w/ this contest. for the Cards, I love their defense & always respected Larry Fitzgerald. My problem for them is which Carson Palmer is going to show up. The one who goes for over 400 yards & 3 tds or the one who’s turnover crazy. For the Chargers, they finished 9-7 last yr. Phillip Rivers will give you numbers, but the defense is the key. Will they show up. Cards are 3.5 home faves. I like the Chargers & the pts.
