Cajun’s Week 7 Picks

I’m on vacation with my wife and she doesn’t want me on the computer for hours on end (like usual) so the picks this week will be pretty short and sweet. CIN+3 AT IND IND is a way better team than I’ve given them credit for and CIN might have been a little overrated. IND to win, IND-3 TEN+6 AT WAS I’m taking my wife to this game tomorrow. As I said on twitter, it wasn’t until after I’d purchased the tickets that I realized I’m taking an American Indian (my wife) to a Washington Redskins game. I felt kind of bad about it so I asked her, “Honey, does the nickname ‘Redskins’ bother you?” She looked at me quizzically and said, “It’s just a fucking football team, right?” That story probably tells you more … Read entire article »

Cajun’s Week 6 Picks

Week 6. GO! IND-3 AT HOU This is a battle for the top of the AFC South and it should be a good one. I’m leaning IND on this one. Since starting 0-2 with losses at DEN and vs. PHI by a TD or less, IND has gone on to three straight wins in mostly convincing fashion. Granted, the teams they beat were JAX, TEN, and BAL but they beat them by margins of 27, 24, and 7. Not too shabby. They’re also throwing the ball well, averaging 323 yards per game. In my opinion, HOU’s resume isn’t as impressive even though they’re sporting the same record. However, with Arian Foster back, I expect HOU to try … Read entire article »

State Flags and Stuff

We find ourselves at an interesting point in the season.  After this weekend, the season will by over one-quarter finished.  It’s far enough in to draw some early conclusions, but not so far in that anything is set in stone.  There seems to be one question on every Saints fan’s mind. So what now? As others have astutely pointed out, the Saints have an equal chance at a top-3 pick as they do to be in a conference championship game.  The season is far from over although it admittedly doesn’t look great right now.  The good news is the Saints have seven of their final twelve games at home and the majority of their remaining schedule is … Read entire article »

A Crucial Cash

(Note: The picks are at the end of this post because there’s a topic I really want to discuss.) I’m sure what I’m about to say will piss someone off. Talking about any social issue from any angle will do that these days. I honestly don’t mean to do that but it’s time we had an open discussion about a subject which everyone tiptoes around every October. My position, so we’re absolutely clear, is that NFL players shouldn’t wear pink for a month every year. At face value, it’s not that crazy a notion, right? But beneath that there are a lot of moving parts so allow me to lay out why I’ve decided to take … Read entire article »

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 … 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 »
