If I Were a Bettin Man the NFL Would Definitely Make Me Poor

 

 by Amy Lignor

Well…even the Seahawks and the Patriots must finally join with everyone else in the NFL who feels as if this season was time-stamped and branded ‘Belonging to the Broncos’ before any player ever stepped on the gridiron.

 

I would assume this is the same feeling all Hollywood actresses deal with when they’re up against Meryl Streep for that coveted Oscar; if she’s in the category, they’ve already lost.

 

When it comes to the NFL, it’s possible that the rest of the NFC and AFC have to get ready to smile, imgresnod their heads, and say: ‘It was an honor just to be nominated.’ Although the Cowboys finally gave the Broncos a REAL run for their money yesterday – and gave their fans a showing that no one would have believed possible – the score sill read 48-51 when all was said and done. (All hail Broncos once again, and all bash Romo once again).

 

The Packers and the Niners – the teams that are usually on everyone’s lips – do seem to be experiencing a resurrection of sorts. They seem to be coming out from under the cloud of haze that the beginning of the season put on their shoulders to actually remind fans that they CAN play the game of football. But others remain completely confused, not to mention the confusion their fans are going through. Eli Manning is looking a great deal like a rookie QB and not the two-time Super Bowl champion that he actually is. Perhaps his brother stole his get-up-and-go juice before the season began?

 

And the Bengals? The Bengals? (That bears repeating). They were always the team that no one really thought anything about; yet, yesterday, they took the field and – with the help of a downpour – made sure to halt the Patriots goal of having a perfect season. Brady didn’t look surprised, however. Let’s face it, for the past few games he’s been looking at his team as if all he wants to do is take back his heroic gift to his coach and head straight to that lovely new home he bought out on the West Coast – leaving all of the NFL behind.

 

You know who else is losing in this NFL weirdness? The predictors. Yes, these are the ones who come on every week to let you know who will win; the real predictors make sure to tell you how many points the winner will achieve. Except for the Broncos, their predictions are coming up a little flat this time around.

 

They did call for San Fran to continue their big streak of winning one game after losing two. And, yes, the Niners beat the Texans fairly easily – which was nice to see considering the Texans have the title of being the best defense in the business. And, yes, the Packers did take on Detroit and make sure to come out the winners.

 

Alas…Seattle – who thought they would be the only team in the NFL to actually give Peyton Manning a run for his money – can call their perfect season quits. The Indianapolis Colts took them down, much to many peoples’ surprise.

 

They called, rightfully so, for the Patriots to be the winner against the Bengals, but the strange magic of this year’s season upended those sure bets. In addition, the Baltimore Ravens actually beat the Dolphins which, again, was not the sure bet.

 

Everyone predicted the Giants loss against the Eagles, but I believe that’s more because of the fact that the Giants are playing football like golfers and not because the Eagles are actually the better team. And for those who bet on Carolina? Oddly enough, the Cardinals decided to hurt the betters and win after all.

 

Next week the Broncos are a 28-point favorite – the largest in NFL betting history. Will someone actually prove Peyton Manning is just a regular guy with a whole lot of luck? Or, will he continue to soldier on, stacking up so many points per game that he is setting records left and right?

 

We shall see if Mr. Roboto continues. But, when it comes to putting your money down on the ‘safe’ bet, it seems that the Broncos are the only ones to choose in order to make sure your cash flow continues.

 

Until Next Time, Everybody,

Amy
