Cajun’s Week 4 Picks

NYG+3.5 AT WAS Both of these teams are 1-2 but there’s a huge disparity in how they’ve played through those first three games. WAS is averaging 27 points scored per game while NYG is averaging 19. Some of that can be chocked up to schedule strength but still, it’s evident that at this early point in the season, WAS is playing better football and even though they’re on their backup QB, they may still have the advantage over Eli Manning, who continues to be fairly dreadful. WAS to win, NYG+3.5 MIA-3.5 VS OAK (in London, UK) Fun travel fact, according to Google Earth, Oakland is 5,400 miles from London. My home of Anchorage, Alaska is only 4,500 miles from London. Now look, I get that NFL players aren’t stuck in the middle seat … Read entire article »

Cajun’s Week 3 Picks

SD+2.5 at BUF After last week’s performance, I’m riding the Chargers in this one.  I know Ryan Mathews is out and they’re not playing in 100-degree heat but this team looks to be much more improved than I gave them credit for and I’m not yet sold on BUF.  SD+2.5, SD to win DAL-2 at STL DAL has some significant holes and it doesn’t look like they’re winning anything this year but STL is down to their third string QB and DAL still has the ability to put points on the board.  DAL to win, DAL-2 WAS+4 at PHI This line could have been 7 and I’d still take PHI.  Their offense is rolling in a major way and I … Read entire article »

Cajun’s Week 2 Picks and Goodell Discussion

Let’s get the picks out of the way and talk about what needs to be talked about. I seem to like a lot of road dogs this week not only to cover, but to win. It’s so early in the season that it’s difficult to tell where everyone will end up. A lot of it is based off of gut feel from what one sees in Week 1 and I barely saw Week 1 so I’m still in the dark. PIT+2.5 at BAL PIT to win, PIT+2.5 DET+3 at CAR DET to win, DET+3 MIA-1 at BUF BUF to win, BUF+1 JAX+6 at WAS WAS to win, JAX+6 DAL+3.5 at TEN TEN to win, TEN-3.5 ARZ-2.5 at NYG ARZ to win, NYG+2.5 NE-3 at MIN NE to win, NE-3 NO-6.5 … Read entire article »

Cajun’s Week 1 Picks

Week 1!  The NFL is back and the signs are everywhere.  Not only are there games kicking off but there are other indicators that mark the return of professional pigskin to the American landscape.  Bill Simmons is going full court press with the kind of guilt that can only be brought about by a Catholic education.  Peter King is honing his skills at being the most socially non-self aware and uncompassionate prick sportswriter to ever sign up for twitter.  Gregg Easterbrook is showing a level of arrogance that can only be masked by forcing readers to wade through 15,000 words of pedantic and obtuse Webster’s-puking on a weekly basis.  Prisco is, well…Prisco is a dick … Read entire article »

2014 NFL Season Preview

Hey guys, anything good happening? Oh, football you say? Nice. I suppose I can get on board with that. Ok, look, I know I’ve been gone ALL summer long but what did you expect me to write about? Baseball? C’mon, man. I’m a Cubs fan. My life as it relates to the national pastime is one big exercise in avoidance and denial. But now the football season approaches and as is customary in these parts, a season preview is presented for your enjoyment, frustration, etc. Just remember, no matter what I say here, most of it will be wrong. Let’s go with a division-by-division approach on these, shall we?   AFC East: (New England Patriots, New York … Read entire article »
