Nurse the Hate: Hate the NFL Week 2

I would like to offer my usual disclaimer before you decide to use this information. I don't know what the hell I am talking about when I offer up sage advice on the NFL. Then again, no one does, so this info is as good as anything else out there. Betting on the NFL is a fool's errand. It is not for the weak of heart, and is sure to end in complete financial disaster by even stepping into the shallow waters of "a little action". Then again, if you don't have any action going, it's pretty hard to watch a Chiefs game.

Starting with the Browns game... It is hard to convey to an outsider just how bad the Browns have been and will continue to be in the foreseeable future. While the local press keeps their focus on the alleged "quarterback controversy", no one is paying attention to the fact that there are maybe three of four people on the team that can tackle anyone. Adrian Peterson ran through the Browns defense like they weren't even of the same species. The defensive backfield looked like little kids trying to make a play. This week the Browns travel to Denver where they face a pretty crappy Broncos team. The Broncos kinda suck, but the question is do they suck bad enough to lose to the even suckier Browns? The Broncos will attack the Browns with an injured Kyle Orton at QB, a pissed off Brandon Marshall, and that hot shot rookie RB from Georgia. Not exactly the 78 Steelers, but let's keep focused on who they have to beat. The Broncos are at home, and Mile High is a motherfucker of a place to try and get a win. Broncos -3.

Donovan McNabb is "questionable" this week with a cracked rib. If I had a broken rib, I would be "questionable" to get up and go to the bathroom. I would be focused on laying in my own filth and crying, not throwing a 40 yard pass. I find it hard to believe that McNabb will be running around and getting hit by 300 lb gorillas with that broken rib. That leaves Kolb the starter to try and score enough points to stay with the Saints. That's not going to be easy. New Orleans dropped 6 TDs on the Lions last week without even breaking a sweat. Sure, it was the Lions, but 6 TDs in the NFL is 6 TDs. I think the Saints are legit this year, and they catch the Eagles at the right time to get a win in Philly. Take New Orleans +1.

Everybody and his brother are on Tennessee this week over Houston. As we have seen time and time again, it is always a good idea to bet against the public. The same people that think Tennessee will cover that spread are excited about things like American Idol coming back, Transformers 2, Hinder, and stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut. (BTW... Why did Jim Bruer do that Pizza Hut "jackpot" ad? I sure hope he got a shitload of money, cause he looks like a fucking tool.) Take Houston +6.5 for no particular reason.
