Don's Crystal Ball 2010 Week 10 Picks

THE DON'S
Crystal Ball
2010 SEASON
WEEK 10 PICKS
By DonCanabis/TheDon
Analyst/Godfather
Well the first Thursday Night game of the season starts this week and with that my own nightmare. Predictions are tough as it is when you have all the information to make your calls but by midweek almost all the information itís inaccurate or a complete guessing game

Quick Hits
  • It has been almost a decade since a game between Oakland and Kansas City meant something else than who would get the better draft pick. Itís great when franchises with so much history rebound and play for something all over again. The game was great and it didnít disappoint.

  • Iím starting to worry about the Jets offense, this was my biggest concern before the season started of why I didnít believe they would reach the promise land even the playoffs as many expected and the past two weeks havenít proved me wrong. If the Jets donít make some changes they could be a one and out team in the playoffs or worse not even make it.
  • Not much change against the spread this week 71-59 record or 55%
  • This is sad and funny, but this is the first time in my lifetime that Dallas has become completely irrelevant to the media, take away the firing of Wade that everyone knew it was going to happen but for once in the past 30 years the media just doesnít care what happens to the Cowboys. I really donít know if I should be Sad or Happy.
  • I hate that there are different rules for guys like Manning and Brady each week you see a call be made in favor of them than no other QB gets. The best example was the call Trent Cole got in the sack/fumble he made to Ice the game where he graced the back of Manning head when he went for the strip, in no other game other than with Brady a Referee would make that call instead of game over, they give Manning a new set of downs and a new chance to win the game because we all want the Colts to win each week.
  • The Goat of the Week The Arizona Cardinals Coaching StaffÖ Not taking anything away from Favre and the Vikings, but the Cardinals lost that game. Arizona was leading with 5 min left in the game by two touchdowns and they took the foot from the pedal and started to try to run the clock down, and play conservative on both sides, Minnesota took control game over.

On to the games

Baltimore at Atlanta -1.5 Ovr/Und 43.5
Both team are playing great, both teams are 6-2, when good teams face you see at who they have played, how good is the team playing at home and how good is the other playing on the road, key injuries and matchups are the others. In this case Ryan has the perfect record at home and its 19-1 overall but Baltimore has played the tougher opponents, matchup better against the Falcons and the injury to White who might play is important. Take Baltimore to produce Ryanís first loss at home in a long time.
Straight: Bal
Spread: Bal
Ovr/Und: Ovr

Detroit at Buffalo -3 Ovr/Und 42.5


M. Stafford is quickly getting the injure prone label attached to his name and itís bad because the kid has shown a lot in the little time heís been in the league, has leadership, will do everything for the win and can make the throws the only bad thing is that he canít stay healthy I swear Detroit just doesnít catch a break. Buffalo has been playing hard the past three weeks trying to earn that first win and with the injury to Stafford I believe this will be the week they get it.

Straight: BUF
Spread: DET
Ovr/Und: UND

Cincinnati at Indianapolis -7.5 Ovr/Und 46.5
I hate that every year Manning is the talk of the MVP disregarding what every other player in the NFL has done just because Peyton is having a good year what everyone else is doing doesnít matter, last year was him over Bress even Favre that pulled his best season ever, this year over Rivers, Matthews heck even Suh who are completely dominating on defense. The Colts have many injuries and are in trouble even with Manning but Cincinnati always finds ways to lose. Take the Colts to win in a close one.
Straight: IND
Spread:CIN
Ovr/Und: OVR

New York Jets at Cleveland 3 Ovr/Und 37
I donít know why this game hasnít gotten as much attention as it should. Brothers are facing each other and Manginni facing the team that let him go two years ago both playing great defense this will be a great matchup. Iím split on this one because I really believe the way Cleveland is playing that they can pull an upset but somehow like last week I feel the Jets will find a way to win.

Straight: NYJ
Spread: CLE
Ovr/Und: Und

Minnesota at Chicago 1 Ovr/Und 40.5
Of both team Minnesota is playing better, plus that defense that finally showed up late in the game against the cardinals will have a feast on the Bears Oline.
Straight: MIN
Spread: Min
Ovr/Und: Ovr

Houston at Jacksonville -2 Ovr/Und 50
The Texans are playing awful defense this is a divisional game with much in stake, Houston has one of the worst secondaryís Iíve ever seen and Gerard looked like an MVP the last time he faced another bad one. Take the home team.

Straight:Jac
Spread:Jac
Ovr/Und:OVR

Tennessee at Miami 1 Ovr/Und 41.5

Last time I checked Miami canít win at home. Plus theyíre benching Henne for 60 year old Pennington. Take the Titans their aggressive defense and the fact Chad canít spread the field should be enough.

Straight: Ten
Spread: Ten
Ovr/Und: OVR

Carolina at Tampa Bay -8 Ovr/Und 38
Carolina has no Oline, no QB, No running game and they play at the road against a Tampa team that has won close game and has played really well against tough opponents like last week.

Straight:TB
Spread:TB
Ovr/Und: Und

Kansas City at Denver 1 Ovr/Und 42.5
That was a tough loss last week for the Chiefs but this is a solid team I donít see them dropping two in a row especially inside their own division. Haley has them thinking playoffs and they know that the key to make it itís win the games in your own division first.
Straight: KC
Spread:KC
Ovr/Und:Und
St. Louis at San Francisco -6 Ovr/Und 38
UPSET OF THE WEEK
One win in London and suddenly the 49ers are a 6 point favorite? The Rams are a better prepared team with a better defense. Take the Rams in this upset, even if theyíre winless on the road.

Straight: STL
Spread: STL
Ovr/Und: OVR

Seattle at Arizona -3 Ovr/Und 41


This division plays awful on the road plus Seattle is hurt, I didnít like how Arizona looked last week against the Vikings even when they were winning that offense just doesnít look good, If Hasselbeck plays I believe they can pull the victory.
Straight: ARI
Spread: SEA
Ovr/Und: UND
Dallas at New York -14 Ovr/Und 44.5

Changes sometimes are good but in the case of Dallas it can be worse. New York itís playing great football and winning by double digits but this is a divisional game and I believe that a 14 game line even with how bad Dallas has been playing is too big in this case take the Giants but donít take the spread. The safe bet take the over.

Straight:NYG
Spread:Dal
Ovr/Und: OVR
New England at Pittsburgh -3.5 Ovr/Und 44
UPSET OF THE WEEK
After a awful loss last week against the Browns it will be tough to play against the Patriots the usually donít lose two in a row. Also Pittsburgh Oline itís completely hurt theyíve lost another key player to IR and two other are questionable. Take the Patriots in this upset.

Straight:NE
Spread:NE
Ovr/Und: UND
Philadelphia at Washington 3 Ovr/Und 42
The redskins have serious issues in house that we donít know if got worked during the bye their defense is the reason this team has hold together but if that offense canít stop making mistakes and score some points this team will have a very rough second half to the season.

Straight:PHI
Spread:PHI
Ovr/Und: OVR


The Hot Picks
Record 26-28 48%
Minnesota (league)
Tennessee(league)
New England (league)
Jacksonville
Philadelphia
Baltimore

Sorry but the Goat of the week is Dallas for rolling over and getting their coach fired. They were picked by all the their fans and media to be a SB team and it came down to the disgrace they called a football game last week. at 1/7 they are the Goat of the week until next season.

Take the spread on the Cowboys vs Giants game. It will easily be a blowout. Kitna and that offensive line are going to get raped and the boys will turn the ball over at least 3 times.

The Cowgirls clearly mailed it in weeks ago. The Giants are rolling, they should mow them down easily.

They aren't the Goat of the week they're the Goat of the Season period, a team with no effort doesn't even deserve to be mentioned.

I don't get it when I talk Cowboys you guys complain that I talk too much Cowboys and after the Jacksonvbille loss when I said they were no longerrelevant and wouldn't talk about them anymore you guys now complain that I don't?.

But their new coach made them practice in pads yesterday so that has to turn around their season. I loved how Garrett talked like he had not even been with the team until this week. I'd fire him for now acting like he is ready to coach.

I agree with you guys and they should but a 14 point line after a coach got fired it's way too big plus the Giants are the ones that hurt Romo and ended any hope.

a 14 point spread in the NFL is way too high anything can happen a mistake, lest take their last metting the game started with 2 int by Eli because of tip passes and a punt return for a TD by Dez Bryant that was 17 points of mistakes which means that the Giants need to score 32 points just to cover the Spread... plus at the end even with Kitna in it Dallas came back on garbage time and scored twice and ended being a 6 point loss.... the game wasn't even close on the field but in the score was a 6 point game.

That's why I don't take the Spread on this one.

In his worst game of the season Eli and the Giants still blew you out in Dallas. I am completely objective when I say you have no prayer in hell...I hope you guys win.

Re: Don's Crystal Ball 2010 Week 10 Picks

I'll go out on a limb and predict the Cowboys will beat the Giants. I can see Kitna getting benched early and Stephen McGee coming in to save the day.

Re: Don's Crystal Ball 2010 Week 10 Picks

I can only bring myself to root for Dallas if a win would send the Redskins to the playoffs. And that is far from clear here, so I feel compelled to continue to hope that Dallas never wins another game. Ever.

Not that I like the Giants, mind you. Or Philly.

Hail, baby.

Re: Don's Crystal Ball 2010 Week 10 Picks

I'm amazed that Detroit has as bad a record that they do. Granted that our OL isn't the best but their DL ate up our pass protection 2 weeks ago. Eagles aren't as good on the DL so I think we'll probably be a little better. It comes down to containing Vick.
