NFL Football: Who Ate My Sandwich + Week 16 Picks


Remember that ham-fisted sandwich analogy we laughed about weeks ago? No? Well, I likened an NFL season to a well made sandwich, one that you enjoy more with every bite. But now, we’re staring at crust people, CRUST. All we’ve got left is this week, next week, and the whirlwind that is the NFL Playoffs.

Before we move forward, I wanted to thank everyone here at the DYC team for another great year, but especially all our new and old readers. This has been a great year for the site and podcast, and it’s only going to get better from here.

Now, on to the PICKS.

As always, home teams in BOLD

Jaguars (-3.5) over Titans

This is it. The final argument against Thursday night football. Good. Grief. If you’re gambling on this game, close this webpage and seek help immediately. In July, when I’m ignoring baseball, I’ll point to this to remind myself that more football isn’t always the answer. Ugh.

Eagles (-7.5) over Washington Professional Football Team

Jay Gruden has moved to the ‘openly trying to get fired’ phase of his Washington tenure, at a near record pace. A Jim Zorn-esque tour de force that continues to find new lows for the Dan Snyder era.

Chargers (+1) over Niners

Ladies and gentlemen, the newest coach of the Michigan Wolverines*…

*I mean, if he says yes. He probably won’t, so brace yourselves for THAT Michigan fans.

Falcons (+6) over Saints

I need this. Plus, LOOK AT ALL DEM  POINTS. I don’t know who wins this game, but I do know I’m looking forward to betting against the Big 10 NFC South representative in the playoffs.

Dolphins (-6.5) over Vikings

Miami throwing it’s hat in the ring for ‘team that gets frisky late, engendering irrational offseason confidence in fans and pundits”.

Ravens (-6) over Texans

Can JJ Watt play quarterback? Aren’t we as a nation ready to find out?

Lions (-8.5) over Bears

The Bears are starting Jimmy Clausen Sunday. So, how was the Marc Trestman era for you?

Never forget:

Panthers (PICK) over Browns

I’m not out on JFF yet, but that was NOT an encouraging start to what may yet be a promising career. Small sample size and all but this…this was not good.

Packers (-10.5) over Buccaneers

Related to the last pick, are we sure Mike Evans wasn’t making JFF look good down in Aggieland? Cause he’s the only watchable thing in Tampa these days.

Steelers (-3) over Chiefs

Be less dependable Steelers. I swear, every week is a coin flip with this team. At least they show you early who they have chosen to be.

Patriots (-10) over Jets

That’s a WHOLE bunch of points for a division game. Then again, it’s the Jets.

Rams (-5) over Giants

Odell Beckham is the only reason to watch any part of this game.

Bills (-6) over Raiders

Do me a quick favor. Close your eyes, and think about every Bills fan you knew at the start of the season. Shouldn’t take long. Now, open your eyes and search twitter for #BillsMafia, particularly those time stamped for last Sunday. Crazy, right?

Cowboys (-3) over Colts

Jinxing like you read about.

Seahawks (-7.5) over Cardinals

Bruce Arians is hands down Coach of the Year, but I gotta think this whole “next guy who can physically throw a football” quarterbacking system has problems against this Seattle team, which has turned it on down the stretch like the Spurs.

Broncos (-3) over Bengals

Go ahead and bet against Peyton Manning at night. Really good way to lose money.

Last Week: 9-5-1

Season: 79-63-5

Love this? Hate it? Think I’m an idiot? Don’t just curse at me under your breath, head to the Dude You Podcast iTunes page, and leave a 5-star review to make sure I know it, and have your voice heard on the air.
