WEEK 14 Picks: Leave Tom Coughlin Alone!

Posted: December 11, 2011 by Keith Stone in 2011 NFL Picks, football, Giants, NFL, Tom Coughlin

I’m so sick of all this Giants’ second half collapse bullshit. This team has been hit by so many injuries, the fact that they’re 6-6 right now is an accomplishment. I don’t know why but for the past three seasons, their schedule has been signifianctly harder at the end of the season. It’s not like the falling leaves make Eli Manning wistful for the South while Tom Coughlin suffers from seasonal affective disorder. If anyone needs to be fired, it’s the guy who makes the schedule. We could play a good team in the first half of the season every once in a while. The Giants have had some indefensible no shows over the years but I’m tired of the jokes and calls for bloodshed. Four years ago, they had they greatest run to end the season of ALL-TIME!!! Tom Coughlin is a World Champion coach. He can leave when he wants, not because his shorthanded team lost to the last two Super Bowl Champs. I think the Giants are better than the Cowboys. Now that the team is finally get a little healthy, they can finally start shutting up all the naysayers tonight. Onto the picks!

COLTS AT RAVENS (-16.5)
Stone: Colts

Slumdeezy: Ravens

Rory: Ravens
BASKETBALL IS BACK!

DP Animal: Colts

Phanatic: Colts
I actually kind of sort of think maybe slash want it to be their week this week.  Or if not I hope they at least beat the spread.

TEXANS AT BENGALS (-2.5)
Stone: Texans
The Bengals haven’t had a good game in four weeks.

Slumdeezy: Texans

Rory: Bengals

DP Animal: Bengals

Phanatic: Bengals

CHIEFS AT JETS (-10.5)
Stone: Chiefs

Slumdeezy: Jets

Rory: Jets
If the Nets do acquire Dwight Howard, here’s how I’ll predict it will go down:
2011-12 – Minor tweaking, building chemistry
2012-2013 – Another minor tweaking year, as the Nets have no draft picks and will use their cap space to resign both Dwight and Deron

Summer 2013 – Here is where the Nets can make the leap from the 2nd/3rd round team they would be after the Dwight trade, as they will have all their draft picks and Hedo will be an expiring contract.

DP Animal: Jets

Phanatic: Jets
Can you say ugly game?

VIKINGS AT LIONS (-9.5)
Stone: Vikings
Depends on whether Adrian Peterson plays.

Slumdeezy: Lions

Rory: Vikings
All in all, Prokhorov promised a championship in five years.  I think the Nets could be on pace for it.

DP Animal: Vikings

Phanatic: Lions

SAINTS (-3.5) AT TITANS
Stone: Saints
The Titans just aren’t good.

Slumdeezy: Saints

Rory: Saints

DP Animal: Saints

DREAM TEAM AT DOLPHINS (-2.5)
Stone: Dolphins
Good thing Michael Vick is coming back this week.

Slumdeezy: Dolphins

Rory: Dolphins
I think the Knicks did fine in picking up Chandler, but will he make a difference in a D’Antoni offense?

DP Animal: Dolphins

Phanatic: Dream Team
I thought this would be the game that they botched and knocked them out of playoff contention.  But they were able to do that already so now they’ll win.

PATRIOTS (-7.5) AT REDSKINS
Stone: Patriots
I have Tom Brady, Wes Welker, and Aaron Hernandez on my fantasy team so they better light it up.

Slumdeezy: Patriots

Rory: Patriots

DP Animal: Patriots

Phanatic: Patriots

FALCONS (-2.5) AT PANTHERS
Stone: Falcons
The Falcons are mediocre but the Panthers play less defense than Eddy Curry.

Slumdeezy: Falcons

Rory: Panthers

DP Animal: Panthers

Phanatic: Panthers

BUCCANEERS (-1.5) AT JAGUARS
Stone: Buccaneers
I just hope this game gets blacked out.
