NFL Week 8: Sportsyack Needs A Mental Evaluation

Jags at (Dallas -6.5)
Jerry Jones spent the week getting plastic surgery on his asshole. Yeah, that's right. Reports surfaced that he had his personal plastic surgeon tighten it up just a tad, to prevent Jones from shitting all over himself in the owner's suite, every time his team shit themselves on the field.

Jags are on the back end of a back-to-back roadie, and they've only covered 1 of their last 6 on the road. John Kitna will be solid following a full week of practice. No worries this week for the guy on Jones' payroll who follows Jones around carrying butt wipes; 27-10 Cowboys.


(Miami+1) at Cincy
Ochocinco and TO have a show on Versus that is a total disaster. These two simpletons sit on a set dressed up like doctors, as they comment on everything from the NFL to Kim Kardashian's attraction to black guys. This week they even dropped the "once you go black, you don't go back" line, when discussing rumors of her dating, errrrr, fucking the shit out of, white guy singer John Mayer.

James Gandolfini and the Dolphins are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games on the road. Carson Palmer, the before mentioned Wideouts, and Marvin Lewis-all pretenders. 17-16 Fish.



Pittsburgh at (New Orleans-1)
Big Hair, Big Ass, and Big Truck Nation is in prime time this week. Woooooooo-hooooooo, baby, get some! Random thought: I wonder how many Steeler fans lost their virginity to one of their cousins, while wearing a Steeler jersey.

"Yeah, I remember it like it was yesterday, giggity-giggity. Me and Betty Sue done snuck off while the rest of the kin was singing 'Happy Birthday' to Uncle Billy. We broke into Aunt Thelma's trailer, and I done fucked her right there on the family room floor, where dem dogs used to rub their asses when they done got them worms. Yepper, I was wearing my Jack Lambert jersey, and when we finished, we used cousin Tommy's Terrible Towel to clean off Betty Sue's ass. It was great!"

Enough nonsense, people. Pittsburgh is due to lose, period (should've lost to Miami). On top of the fact that they're in the middle of a brutal 3 game road trip, with this less important, out of conference game squeezed in between at Miami (last week) and at Cincinnati (next Monday Night). Look for the defending Super Bowl champs to rebound from last week's home drubbing they took from our beloved Browns. Saints are 12-3 ATS the week after a SU loss. 20-16, Who Dat?



Finally, we're passing on (Tennessee+3.5) this week, simply because we're jinxed by this team. We love Jeff Fisher and crew, but whether we bet them, don't bet them, or bet against them, we somehow end up screwing ourselves. However...

For starters, a coaching contest between Jeff Fisher and Norv Turner is laughable. We are HUGE Fisher fans, and we've always thought, dating back to his regime in Washington, that Norv is an AWFUL head football coach. Secondly, this game features two unbelievable trends, polar opposites of each other, that pertain to this game's circumstance, both pointing to the Titans:

*Titans are 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games as an underdog of 3.5-10 points.

*Chargers are 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite.

We Suck, Dallas Sucks, Donovan Doesn't Suck, and Charlie Sheen is Cool

Pimpin' ain't easy, and apparently neither is picking winners. After firing out of the gate at 9-2, we've had a 3 week run that flat out sucks donkey dicks.

3-8 ATS during that span, our pride is now on the same level as a former NY Governor who gets caught fucking some hot prostitute, who then has to hold a press conference to resign his governorship while standing next to his miserable wife, but whom eventually lands on his feet, scoring a show that nobody is watching, on Ted Turner's once successful network, in which he sits on a panel with a snarky, smarter than everyone in the room, bitch journalist. Did you follow that analogy?

Suggested name change for that awful, train wreck of a show: Asshole and Shit For Brains.



Dallas is horrible. And so was that pre-game promotional spot Jerry Jones did. Is this the NFL, or was Jerry Jones prepping me for the sequel of some movie I was getting ready to watch? I actually think he might be a bigger douche than Dan Snyder. I realize he was successful early on in his regime, but the last 15 years in Dallas has been a disaster- no different than what we've had in Washington. Except for now, Cowboy fan, you're 1-5 and Redskin fan is 4-3.



Donovan McNabb took entirely too much flack for a game in which his team won. So continues the attitude of a fan base, which in my estimation- besides being made up primarily of "win now" elitists, also shows signs of mild retardation.

Radio hosts, radio show callers, straight up haters- shut the fuck up, already! What do you want, Redskin Fan? Your team has already matched its win total from last year, you're "in contention" approaching the midway point of the season, and Donovan McNabb has won you games Jason Campbell would not have.

Sunday night and Monday morning, all I heard was how bad of a game McNabb played. The focus was on a line of scrimmage pick 6, which if not for a guy named DeAngelo Hall, would've been the best defensive play of the game, and a pick 6 that didn't even count. Which by the way, the clock was at double zero and the ref had blown the whistle. Are we sure Donovan McNabb hadn't given up on the play(throw) already? I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt, and saying he probably had.

Donovan McNabb is the man in Washington right now. In fact, he and Shanahan are the men who have incorporated real change in Washington, unlike that big eared nerd who throws a baseball like a girl, who also happens to live in the White House.

The Redskins could be 5-3 going into their bye week, people. Things are looking much brighter than they have in recent years. Take a chill pill, get the fuck off Donovan and Shanny's backs, and let's go kick Detroit's ass.



Charlie Sheen is cool. The dude gets paid an astronomical amount of money ($1.8 mil/per episode, allegedly) to play a millionaire gigolo, who goes through life throwing back cocktails and crushing ass. Which essentially, it seems, is what Charlie Sheen gets to do in his real life.

"Two and A Half Men" is one of the greatest shows in the history of comedy television. Please enjoy one of the Sportsyack's all time favorite scenes from that show.

NFL Week 7: Helmet to Helmet Winners

We'll Bitch First, Then Give Winners.
What a weird weekend of football. Not only did it provide a weekend for knee jerk reactors, who will also be the first ones bitching next Monday morning, when some zebra fucks up their 2 team parlay with one of them "new flags", but it also featured two gambling snafus, one that helped us, and one that didn't.

The first one involved the Cleveland/Pittsburgh game. With just 1:25 left in the game, the Steelers had the ball inside the red zone with an 11 point lead. The Sportsyack was on the Brownies +13.5. Rather than run the ball and force Cleveland's time out hand, Mike Tomlin opted to throw it to the end zone. Touchdown Steelers, Sportsyack loses. #FML

We realize that even a field goal would've uncovered us, but honestly, why are they passing the ball in that situation? Do you think it was just to FUCK yours truly? We think so.....

Secondly, in what ended up being a more positive result, I was on the Raiders for what I thought was +7. Our "man", who I happened to be in the same company with watching the late afternoon football, informed me late in the contest that the line actually closed at Raiders +9. Ok. That worked for us, as Oakland ended up losing by 8.

In any case, we ended up 2-2, based on the lines we posted Friday, and we did hit the Rams, WHICH WE DID ADVISE to bet the moneyline on. The Rams, getting 9, was an easy straight up winner, versus a not very good Charger team.



And Away We Go....

(Jax +9.5)
at Kansas City
Jacksonville is a hard team to figure. They got destroyed on national TV, and looked inept. They spot Buffalo a 10 point lead, then come back and put 36 up and win. They beat the Colts in OT, yet got kicked around by both Philly and San Diego, but they beat what appears to be a descent Bronco team.

The Chiefs are not who we think they are. Some folk in the "know" want to label these guys as AFC contenders, but not so fast, Arpoc. This team was 4-12 last year, and all of a sudden they're laying almost double digits?!?

Quite frankly, they haven't beaten anybody who is worth a shit. In fact, the combined record of the teams they've beaten (San Diego, Cleveland, and Frisco) is 4-14. Not impressive.

The Chiefs have lost two straight. The Jags will rebound from that embarrassment on Monday night. Jacksonville has covered 7 out of their last 10 versus the AFC West, and is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 as a double digit dog. A low scoring affair, we like the Jags.



St.Louis at (Tampa Bay-2.5)
This is not a sexy game. However, when we find a team (Rams) who have lost 15 of their last 18 road games dating back to the start of the 2008 campaign, and they're on the road getting less than a field goal, we're probably going to bet on their opponent.

We like Tampa to rebound from the thumping they took last week to NOrleans, and we expect a let down from the Rams, who are riding the high of winning a game in which they were almost double digit dogs. Bet against the rookie quarterback on the road, whose playing a team who is tied (with your Washington Redskins) for 3rd in the league in the +/- category for turnovers (+5).

If the straight up wager isn't good enough for your degenerate blood, consider a Bucs/Under parlay or teaser. The Bucs have played 8 straight unders versus NFC opponents.



San Fran at (Carolina +2)
Last week we asked how an 0-5 team (San Fran) was laying a touchdown(which actually ended up being 9 points). This week we stumbled across this head scratcher, as a now(1-5) Frisco team, makes the dreaded west coast to east coast trip, to play a 1pm eastern starting time game, AND they're laying points.

We realize Carolina is no great shakes at (0-5), but we like them in this spot. Coming off their bye, John Fox and the Panthers have won 4 out of their last 5. Also, Frisco has been awful vs Carolina, covering just 3 times in the last 16 games these two have played. Not to sound like an oxymoron, but rarely will we say, "we love" a team who is (0-5), but we love the Panthers.




NYGiants at (Dallas-3)
The Giants are 4-1 SU and ATS their last 5 versus Dallas. The last time these two teams hooked up in the Jerry Dome, the Giants won a 33-31 shootout, and Peyton's younger brother vandalized the visiting team's locker room.

We like Dallas this week, for the same reasons we gave in our last post; the NFC East is a very average division, and the division winner probably won't eclipse the double digit win total. Also, Dallas is too damn good (statistically), to be a 1-5 team (if they were to lose).

Dallas' offense is 3rd in the entire league in yards gained. Their defense is 4th in the entire league in yards allowed. And seriously, if this team didn't commit one penalty after another (spare us the "if" argument, yeah we know) they'd be 3-2, possibly 4-1.

"Hillbilly Jim" Phillips has his feet to the fire big time. This is a national TV game, versus a divisional opponent who they despise, whose Quarterback went "magic marker" on Jerry's walls last year, similarly to how a plastic surgeon goes "magic marker" on Jerry's face, prior to making those youthful incisions.

Dallas will boat race the Giants Monday night, road dogs Eagles and Redskins will probably lose, and the NFC East will officially become a 'crap'shoot.

Dear NFL,

What's it gonna be? Are you going to continue to be the rough and tough sometimes brutal game that America fell in love with, or are you going to allow yourself to be molded and sculpted into something less "violent" by the suits, most of whom never played? I'm not condoning cheap shots or guys that are intentionally looking to hurt someone, and I don't think anybody is. But you need to take a deep breath and use some common sense, before you ruin a great game.

Football is a violent game, especially on the professional level. It involves men that are bigger, faster, and stronger than you can even imagine. The physicality of the game takes a toll on the body that no non-player can ever imagine.

Have you ever seen Conrad Dobler's knees? It's not pretty. Nine knee replacement surgeries later, and the area where his knees used to be now looks like my underwear in July, right after I've played 36 holes and then paid a visit to the El Taco in Sterling Park.

It's not as if we don't know the risks and dangers, both short term and long term, that the game presents. More importantly, the players are aware of them. There isn't one single player in the NFL that is being forced to play on Sundays against their will. They know that when they step out on that football field, there is a chance that they might not be able to walk off it.

They play because they love the game and they get paid a lot of money to play it. If any single player feels that it's too violent, then he should walk away. There will be no one begging them to stay, and there will be a guy to fill his spot before he finishes cleaning his locker out.

As a fan, I never want to see any player get seriously hurt. However, I also don't want to see the game changed dramatically in kneejerk type fashion to fit more comfortably in our PC world. When people like Peter King and Mike Greenberg are talking about football adopting the "man down" rule system, where teams have to play with 10 defenders in the event of an ejection for a hit that is deemed too violent, I don't know whether to just shake my head in disgust or phone my doctor to schedule my sex change operation.

Defenders already have to put on kid gloves prior to hitting the quarterbacks, and pretty soon they aren't going to be able to hit the receivers either.

Think about it. The NFL is about to have a set of rules where it is illegal if you hit a quarterback too low, and it is illegal if you hit a receiver too high. Pretty soon offensive players will have to wear color-coded jerseys to let defenders know where and how they are allowed to be tackled.

Like I said before, I'm all for protecting the players and cleaning up dirty play, but the suits are teetering on implementing rules that will change the basic fundamentals of football. And with the avalanche of media coverage, and everyone getting their two cents in via blogs, twitter, etc, the overkill will inevitably lead to a player getting ejected for a hit that doesn't warrant such punishment.

You will see numerous flags thrown for hits that are deemed to be helmet to helmet when they are not. You will see more and more game changing calls made by officials that will have you screaming at your TV in frustration.

Goddell, the owners, and the NFLPA need to take pause. They've become the most popular sports league in America, because of the violence their game brings into our homes on a weekly basis.

So if we could ask one favor of the powers that be, pertaining to the game that we love so much.... on your way to the bank, implementing your concern for player safety in the form of an 18 game schedule, could you leave the rules alone, as they pertain to a player attempting to separate another player from the ball?

Thanks so much. Football fan.

The NFC Least and Quit Killing Mike

Dallas haters need to chill-ax. As much fun as it is to watch this team self implode and make a mockery of themselves week after week, they are very much alive in the NFC East. With Washington and Philly both being road dogs, and Dallas hosting the Giants on Monday Night, the likely scenario has all 4 teams separated by just 1.5 games by weekend's end.



Remarkably, the 1-4 Cowboys have both a Top 5 offense and defense. They've only played 1 divisional game, and if they can get their excessive celebration heads out of their asses, they do control their own destiny, even with a dumbass at the helm. We have a hard time believing the Redskins are going to be able to keep up, with a 32nd ranked defense giving up as much yardage as it is week to week, and we've never thought the Eagles had the personnel to compete within.

The long and short of it; the Cowboys and the Giants will be there in the end, and the team who gets to 9-7, wins the division. And as average as the NFC appears to be this year, I wouldn't expect more than one team from the 'Least', to represent come post season.



"Dreams of Grandeur" Redskin fan needs to point their negative energy and hate somewhere other than in the direction of Mike Shanahan. On the heels of two years of bitching and moaning about the carte blanche atmosphere at Redskin Park, the Sportsyack suggests you applaud Shanahan for his "cleaning house" approach, and his lack of tolerance for players who are not 'all in'.

Newsflash, Kool Aid drinker(s): the Redskins are not going to win the Super Bowl this year. And since that's the case, I couldn't care less if Albert Haynesworth sees the field or not. He's not a team guy, and he's a total locker room distraction, to include players, coaches, AND the media.

Same goes for Devin Thomas, and all of you who are boo-fucking-hooing his dismissal. The guy couldn't get onto the field for the 3 years he was here, and he showed up to camp this year with a hamstring that probably could've used a little bit more off season training, and a lot less pretending to be Fantasia's boyfriend. And I won't even mention the alleged falling asleep during meetings incident (whoops), but if that did happen, it shows a real lack of commitment and total disrespect to his team, coaches, and the fans.

As a Redskin fan, I'm glad Shanahan is a 'buck stops here' guy, ala Bill Parcells. And in what can only be described as 360 degree hypocrisy, that same Redskin fan who called for Zorn's head, is the same Redskin fan who Monday morning quarterbacks Jerry Jones, on when and why he should be firing the very flippant Wade Phillips, yet in the same breath questions Shanahan's hard line approach.

You can't have it both ways, people. You can't criticize Zorn for two years, demand everyone get fired and that people at Redskin Park be accountable, and then bitch and moan when a proven winner comes in, and installs the "I'm not taking any shit" sign at the door.

Hopefully Shanahan's plan is to not dine and dash and take Snyder's money after just a couple years, but to put his stamp on a team full of players who want to win. We're going to give him and his ways more than 6 weeks to do so, before we pass judgement.

NFL Week 6: Dusting Ourselves Off Like Chilean Miners

(Cleveland +13.5) at Pittsburgh
Big Hair, Big Ass, and Big Truck Nation is feeling pretty good about themselves. Not only is their team 3-1, just a half game behind the black birds from Baltimore, but this is the week their hard headed, oblivious to "No" quarterback gets back into the swing of things.

I'm sure you're sick and tired of us preaching Cleveland, as their 1-4 record is as impressive as a cold sore, but they've been in EVERY FREAKING game they've played thus far, and we really do we like them in this spot. Having beat the Steelers straight up the last time these two teams met, and covered both contests last year, the Brownies would've covered 4 of the last 5 between these two, had the line been (13.5) each time.

The Browns are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 versus the AFC, and thru 5 games this year, are only yielding 16 points per. Some country bumpkin from Miami(Oh), isn't going to take the first month and change off from game reps, and then hop back into the thick of it, and cover two touchdowns against a divisional opponent. It ain't happening. BROWNS




Indianapolis/Washington (OVER 44)
Redskin fan knows they've had a habit of playing down to or up to their opponent. This year alone, they've struggled to score, and have squeaked out wins against Dallas, Philly, and the Pack, but lost in a shootout to the Texans, in a game in which they scored 27.

The Colts are still the Colts, Peyton Manning is still their quarterback, and although they're well under the radar, we still think they'll win their division. The Colts lowest point total thru 5 games is 19 (last week vs. the #2 ranked KC defense), yet they're still averaging 27 points per game.

The Colts have played OVER the total, in 17 of their last 22 versus NFC opponents. The Redskins' 32nd ranked defense will be yielding points Sunday night, and McNabb and the Skins will do their best to keep up, against Indy's 25th ranked D. Dating back to 1990, these two teams have played over in 8 of 9 contests, including three consecutive. Can the Redskins win another nail biter on the final play? 33-30 final.




San Diego at (St.Louis +9)
This game features three things we love to bet against: 1. A team on the back end of back to back roadies, 2. A team on the back end of back to back roadies who is also laying a monster number, and 3. A Norv Turner coached team on the back end of back to back roadies, who is also laying a monster number.

The Chargers are a team whose window of opportunity has closed. They had all the pieces in place over the past 3-4 seasons, and should've won a Super Bowl already. Their front office has been unable to check its ego at the door, hence letting a still productive LT go and not paying Vincent Jackson.

The Chargers are 0-3 SU and ATS on the road this year. They're coming off a hard fought loss in Oakland, and are probably spent from it. St. Louis will rebound from the ass whippin' they took up in Detroit, as we expect a much more fiery Ram team, who has played well in certain spots this season. This spot is one of them. Consider the money line bet as well.



(Oakland +6.5) at San Francisco
What gives, Vegas? Either you're the ultimate Al Davis hater, or you know something we don't. I'm not sure how an 0-5 team whose going nowhere, regardless of what their front office claims in text messages, is laying over a touchdown to a team who is riding the high of a huge divisional win.

Short of a week 1 blowout at Tennessee, the Raiders have played well this year and have been in every game. They're 10th in total offense, scoring almost 23 points per. The 49ers are a mess. Alex Smith can't hit the broad side of a barn, and Mike Singetary looks like he's about to become San Francisco's next zodiac killer. This game will be a borefest, but a profitable borefest for Raider Nation.

A Flaccid Weiner and Carnac the Magnificient


Brett, what the fuck are you doing? You (allegedly) sent some chick a picture of your junk, and the picture was less than flattering. Sending her a picture of your pinky finger would've been more impressive.

What were you trying to prove to her? To reiterate the point that us white boys are hung like field mice? Well, good job. Point proven.

To put it in perspective, in the world of athletic junk, Greg Oden's cock doubles as an ankle scratcher, and Favre's pretty much has a clitoris.

Also, what do you think this Jenn girl got out of that sext message? I mean, when a chick gets a pic sent to her, of some dude's limp inch worm, does she immediately run into the nearest bathroom and pleasure herself? I'm guessing not. In fact, my bet is that she forwards the picture to her best friend with the subject line: Look how small this dude's dick is!!! LOL!!!

Seriously, its a shame that on the night Favre throws his 500th touchdown pass, the only thing people can think about is his creepy courting techniques. Favre is an icon, the Joe DiMaggio of football. He's given up his body for the love of the game. In 2003, he played a football game on Monday night football, the day after his dad died unexpectedly. In that game, he threw for 4 touchdowns and 399 yards, and led the Pack to a 41-7 win over Oakland. Then he went to the funeral.

Hopefully for Favre and football fan, Favre was already knee deep in Jenn Sterger's ass when he sent those pics. That's what we think (hope) happened. The scenario; the voice mails took place early on, and the dick pics happened much later down the road, and were sent with consent. And if not, and a laundry list of women come forward with creepy voicemail messages and pictures of what resemble a half frank, well then.....Eldrick?













Carnac the Magnificent has been calling us non stop for almost a year now, in an attempt to get some 'face time' within the blog. So here at the Sportsyack, we finally gave in, and have allowed Carnac to hijack our blog, to do his answer/question bit for your reading pleasure. Fill in Ed McMahon's stupid, hefty, approving laugh for yourselves.



Answer: Mike Shanahan, Felix, and Albert Haynesworth.
Question: Name a rat, a cat, and a fat.

Answer: "Golf, fish, and beat the wife!"
Question: What are the three things former Braves manager Bobby Cox told reporters he'd' be doing in retirement?


Answer: Penis and ratings.
Question: Name two things WNBA players don't get.

Answer: Turning a blind eye.
Question: Whats the official motto for the city of Bristol, CT?


Answer: Numbers and cock.
Question: What does Brett Favre keep stored in his cell phone?


Answer: Jumping from roof tops.
Question: What will executives at Fox sports be doing, if its a Texas/San Francisco World Series?




Our eagerly awaited NFL picks for the week will be released tomorrow. Following our 0-3 ATS debacle last weekend, we realize that the only guys who had a worse week than us, are those miserable bastards who were stuck down in that mine with their buddies playing gin rummy, looking at porn, and telling fart jokes, who now have to go home to their wife and kids. We promise to do better this week.

NFL Week 5: Betting with Our Heads

Tennessee at Dallas (-7)
"They are who we thought they were!", was the famous post game presser shout from former Arizona coach Dennis Green. And here at the Sportsyack, the Titans are not who we thought they were. Not only do they account for one of the Yack's only 2 losses ATS this year (shameless plug), but they've played very sloppy, non Jeff Fisher like, football.

Three weeks ago, they turned the ball over 7 times in a home loss to the Steelers. Last week they were outscored at home 13-3 in the final quarter and a half, in their home loss to the Broncos. Potential championship teams don't pull those shenanigans.

The Dallas Cowboys, unfortunately for the Redskins fans here at the Yack, are who we think they are. They're a pretty good football team, who will be in the conversation come January. And following their bye week, which included a team dinner in which Dez Bryant picked up the $55,000 tab (or how Dez's mom would equate it, 325 blow jobs worth), Dallas should feel nice and refreshed.

Tony Romo, as much as we like to make fun of that little douchebag, is throwing for over 300 yards per game, and completing almost 70% of his passes. The Cowboys, the last 5 years following a bye week, are 5-0 ATS. Dallas wins 27-14.


Kansas City (+7) at Indianapolis
When is the public perception of the Colts going to wane? Can we be the first ones to tell you that the Colts are not a very good team. In fact, they borderline suck. They just lost to the hapless Jaguars for Christ's sake, and their defense is atrocious!

Ranked 24th overall in the league, 29th against the run, the Colts defense is giving up almost 24 points per game, and is ripe for Jamaal Charles and the upstart Chiefs to run the ball right down their throats.

Kansas City is 3rd in the league in rushing, which accounts for almost 161 yards per game. The before mentioned Charles, has a disgusting 7 yards per attempt rushing average. And on the otherside of the ball, Kansas City's defense, which is more silent on radar than a U.S. drone attack on some Pakistani village, is second only to the Steelers in points allowed, at 12.7 per game.

A low scoring affair, the Colts may win this game, but definitely not in blowout fashion. Take the Chiefs and the points.


Green Bay(-2.5) at Washington
Let me tell you real quick what kool aid drinking Redskin fan will say to himself, to justify betting on the Skins this week. "But, umm, the Packers have no running game, man!"

The Packers are one of the teams in the conversation, to be representing the NFC in the Super Bowl this year. The Redskins are old, not consistent (week to week or quarter to quarter), and they'll end up being a .500 team at best.

We're not sure of this point spread. Sunday night, when the brains at the Sportsyack went thru the docket of games, we predicted this game would be about a 4.5 point spread. We feel the Redskins national TV game win last week vs the Eagles may have something to do with it, possibly accounting for the overlay money coming in on them.

The Redskins are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games in October. In the last 6 meetings between these two teams, the Pack is 5-0-1 ATS. Redskin haters Papa Lurch and EB of the Sports Junkies www.1067thefandc.com will be proven correct, and will have the majority of their listeners eating crow come Monday morning. 31-19 Packers.
