So I guess I'm saying that Peyton is the bigger tool.  And can you imagine how much it bugs him that Eli is 2-0 in the SB while he's 1-2?  It'll give him cancer.

Oh, and a funny anecdote from Archie Manning who was in Dallas this week for some event at SMU.  He was asked about how many games they watched of each son.  He laughed and said Eli never knew, was oblivious, but that Peyton knew exactly how many games of each son that his folks attended, so they had to keep it even.

Guess this game is taking a little sheen off the Charger's season. Sure, they beat Seattle early on, and it was certainly unexpected, but even that one doesn't seem as great now.  That's their only win against a winning team save the Buffalo win, also questionable.

Denver is spanking the shit outta them boys. Emmanuel Sanders caught all three Manning TD's.  The last one was a gem.  Plus, the Bronco's defense looks pretty damn serious.

From what I've seen, the Steelers aren't in the same league as either of these teams.

Way I see it, next 2 games are home losses, Ben has to wait for win #100, we're moving from 4-3 to 4-5.  Right now this feels like a HUGE Colts win, like 43-14 or something.  Hate the matchups here.

Yeah, sadly, that's how I see it, too.  Unless the defense suddenly goes to the next level, there's no hope.  And the offense has really shown nothing to make me believe they'll suddenly start scoring on a regular basis.  The sample size in the last game was microscopic.

Cap’n Cranky’s Week 8 Picks

Chargers at Broncos.

Peyton Manning is a lot like ebola.  He can kill you if your defenses are compromised, and I’m sick to fucking hell of hearing about him.  Manning, TD record, ebola ebola ebola.  Ebola, Manning TD record, ebola ebola ebola.  Manning, ebola, Manning, ebola.  Mannibola.  Emanning.  Emannibola.  

These teams would be pretty evenly matched if it weren’t for the Chargers’ injuries in the secondary.  With Brandon Flowers out and Jason Verrett likely out, Emmanibola should be able to find the holes in the secondary.  Ex-Steeler Emmanuel Sanders (no relation to Emmanibola) has 514 yards receiving this year, second to teammate Demarius Thomas (662), but more than any of the Chargers receivers (Malcolm Floyd, 412; Antonio Gates, 363; Keenan Allen, 354; Eddie Royal, 345).  Ain’t none of them Antonio Brown (719), but that’s a different discussion.

Given the secondary issues and the short week trip to Denver, I’m tempted to see this as another Thursday blowout.  I’m also tempted to figure out names for the love child of Peyton Manning and Emmanuel Sanders:  Emmaniemannibola?  But I also think that this being a division game with two otherwise closely matched foes, and a solid coach in San Diego’s Mike McCoy, could see the near-TD spread wind up being eroded in a comeback attempt.  Still, I can’t help thinking:  what if the Manning-Sanders love child was then spliced with former Rams TE Brandon Manumaleuna, would we have Emmaniemannimanumaleu nebola?  It certainly makes one think.

Broncos 28, Chargers 20, as a late rally fizzles.

I like Nolan's movies, so I'll probably watch it as soon as it comes out on VHS.

Bengals gonna win without AJ Green?  Hasn't worked so far.  We'll see, they have to be in desperation mode.

Colts are gonna be a matchup nightmare for the Steelers.  Even with Wayne sitting, TY Hilton is going to command Mitchell's attention over the top, and big bodies like Fleener, Allen, and Nicks tend to dominate our DBs.  Bradshaw can catch it too, and don't be surprised if the rookie Moncrief comes in and pulls a Martavis Bryant.

The Colts D has been sick too, allowing ~25% 3D conversion on the season, but ~11% the last 4 games.  Uhhh, we already suck on 3D, so Ben had better be crisp, Bell had better get a good share of calls, and Haley needs to be super efficient on 1 & 2D.  We just can't afford to go down by double digits or we're cooked; there will be no 24-point miracle.

Way I see it, next 2 games are home losses, Ben has to wait for win #100, we're moving from 4-3 to 4-5.  Right now this feels like a HUGE Colts win, like 43-14 or something.  Hate the matchups here.

I'm highly anticipating this movie.  As much as folks may find Matthew McConaughey to be terribly annoying, and I often do, when he has good material, he can be great. 

So let's toss in another polarizing star, Anne Hathaway!  She doesn't bother me, never understood why people hate her.

And the movie.  Check out this promo and tell me you aren't intrigued.  Real science and such attention to detail, wow.  Plus, I like the subject matter.  Can't wait for this thing to be out for two weeks so I can go see it.

Anyone watching tonight?  Been a tight game until the 5-run explosion by KC.  Hope they hold on for the win, I always love rooting for the underdog when I have no horse in the race, dog in the fight, etc.
