The Morning After Post: Week 4 Nasty Boys


For the past two weeks I’ve been on this glorious post singing the praises of the San Francisco 49ers. Not only am I partially disgusted* with giving the Niners props, but I’m horrified that they are making me look bad!

You see, I bought the hype. Went into my fantasy leagues, quiet as I could be with plans of drafting Kaepernick and Anquan Boldin. How could I go wrong? The quarterback wunderkind paired with the brother who broke his face and treated it like a flesh wound?! Good money!

And week 1? Absolutely.

Week 2? Ok, understandable. Seattle does play in the terrordome, I get it.

But surely they would take it all out on Indianapolis right? Use the game to let off some steam, stick it to a team that was feeling themselves wayy too much, and reestablish why they deserve the big piece of chicken.

But that didn’t happen. Instead of answers all we’ve got is questions. And regret. You’ve left me no choice.

nasty boys

Until the Niners get their act together I have no choice but to demote them from the Road Warriors to the Nasty Boys.

Let’s get to my Week 4 picks. Home teams in bold. Can’t miss game with the ill underline.

San Francisco over St. Louis

I’ll have no words if the Nasty Boys can’t get past the Rams. Imma have to google whatever tag team the Brooklyn Brawler was on just in case.

Baltimore over Buffalo

The Ravens messed around and caught the spirit last week. They should get Ray Lewis to dress up like Moses and hold a staff in the air at every game.

Cincinnati over Cleveland

I wonder how often Bengals fans console themselves by saying “At least we’re not Browns fans.” Both teams got surprising wins last week but Cincy’s was over a better team and…who am I kidding. No one cares about this game.

Chicago over Detroit

The Lions are fresh off their first win in Washington but Chicago is rolling. Detroit should be light work for them.

Kansas City over New York Giants

0-4 won’t look good on you Big Blue. How the mighty have fallen.

Minnesota over Pittsburgh

My respect for the Steelers made this a difficult pick for me but the truth is “Black and Yellow” was a long time ago. It ain’t only the towels that are terrible.

Arizona over Tampa Bay

Indy over Jacksonville

Seattle over Houston

Let’s see if the Seahawks can take their dominance on the road. Texans could earn some real stripes in this one.

Tennessee over New York Jets

Denver over Philadelphia

Ain’t no way Philly can keep up but the guns will most definitely be out in this one.

Washington over Oakland

So at first thought Washington should totally destroy the Raiders. But who knows? Games in Oakland can be like playing in the Bermuda Triangle. And Oakland has to be mad after that Monday Night embarrassment. Somebody has to pay. I wouldn’t wanna be reppin DC after this one.

San Diego over Dallas

If this happens does this mean San Diego is better than we thought or Dallas, despite possibly winning the division by default, still stinks?

Atlanta over New England

New Orleans over Miami

*That 8 year old boy wearing an Emmitt Smith jersey and a twinkle in his eye has never forgiven me for leaving the team of my youth.

The Morning After Post: Where the Big Boys Play

Richard Sherman

Even though I am not down with Richard Sherman’s straight disrespect of Skip Bayless on First Take, I’ve got to give props to him and Seattle’s defense for showing the league that Seattle is where the power lies.

Boldin, my favorite wideout in the league, was church moused.

Kaep looked flustered and was catching visions of losing that eyebrow.

I came away from the game convinced that we saw the eventual superbowl champions. These are the two best teams in the league. I HOPE that this is what the NFC championship game will be. If anything the pressure is now on San Fran to make sure they win the division because although they are the Road Warriors, they want NO PARTS of Seattle at home.  I lowkey don’t even care about the AFC this year*, or the rest of the NFC for that matter. This season sets in the west.

Let’s get to my Week 3 picks. Home teams in bold. Can’t miss game with the ill underline.

Philly over Kansas City

The good brother Andy Reid returns to Philly for the first time. That 2-0 start and legendary Kansas City BBQ prolly hasn’t made him homesick at all.

Green Bay over Cincinnati

Ain’t nothing worse than winning by default. The Bengals are going to win the division because everybody else just can’t.**

At one point I labored over whether I should pick Rodgers in the first round. Last week he played so brilliantly he could have had his shirt off in the press conference and only respond to reporters who called him Hollywood Cole.

Dallas over St. Louis

Methinks this is a trap game for Dallas.

San Diego over Tennessee

Knowing my luck the Chargers will lose this game. They played so well last week I almost  forgot that they are a trash team.

Minnesota over Cleveland

New England over Tampa Bay

New Orleans over Arizona

Washington over Detroit

RGIII needs to win this game.

New York Football Giants over Carolina

But not as badly as these brothers need to win this game. Eli? Cam? And to think I was gonna draft one of yall as my starting QB?!***

Hold on! Praise Break!

Baltimore over Houston

Atlanta over Miami

New York Jets over Buffalo

San Francisco over Indy

Seattle over Jacksonville

This and the San Fran game will be destructive. We need to get Jim Ross and Gus Johnson on the coverage.

Chicago over Pittsburgh

Denver over Oakland

*Alright so that’s not all the way true. I’m intrigued, word to Papi LeBatard, by the Broncos. Peyton wants no part of either Seattle or San Fran’s D. He’ll make them look like Jet Li in The One.

**And then they’ll prolly lose in the first round.

***Truth be told I’ve got Eli as a backup.
