Texans 30, Steelers 10; Watt 4 sacks


I'm thinking more like 8 sacks and 4 TDs from fumble and INT returns.  Maybe a final of 68-2 because the grizzled prospector trips in the end zone.


Guise,

Relax.  Look at the line (-3.5).  Screams to Johnny Public to take the Texans and the points.

Steelers win and cover.

Cap’n Cranky’s Week 7 Picks

Jets at Patriots
For their only win thus far this year, the Jets edged out the 0-5 Raiders by a score of 19-14.  When your only win is against an 0-fer team and you’re playing on a Thursday, you’re pretty well fucked.
Patriots 34, Jets 17.

Pats are my survivor pick this week.  However, in the last hour, I'm gettin' a sinking feeling that Rexy is gonna get all hopped up on foot fetish porn and lead them to some crazy underdog victory.  The guy just loves sticking it in Belicheat's eye.

*whew*

Thankfully, it was in Foxborough and the fix was in.

Should have been swept by the Browns, and could have easily, EASILY pissed away that Jags game. 

Gee, a 1-5 start is eerily reminiscent of 0-4, no?  We did improve to 2-4 last year.  All the same, really.  Any "improvement" down the stretch is yesterday's turds, down the toilet.

BTW, put Landry Jones on waivers, not a developmental OL guy.  Who's claiming Landry???
Landry should have been cut at camp anyway. Oh. .. and even if someone claims him,  who's going to care?

Take my wife... please!

Patriots 34, Jets 17.

Falcons at Ravens
Falcons are soft.  Sort of like the Steelers.
Ravens 38, Falcons 13.

Titans at Washington
Question is not which team is better, but rather which team is worse.  Hard to say. 
Native Americans 20, Titans 17

Seahawks at Rams
Well, well, the Seahawks are human.  They’ll want to take that out on someone, but Jeff Fisher won’t hear of it.  Because he has no ears. 
Seahawks 31, Rams 20

Browns at Jaguars
The Steelers barely wheezed past the Jags.
Browns 34, Jaguars 13

Bengals at Colts
Bengals may be the best AFCN team on paper, but how could they tie -- TIE! – a Panthers team that the Ravens beat the hell out of, and even the Steelers had their way with? 
Colts 31, Bengals 17

Vikings at Bills
Bills should be able to pressure Bridgewater and stuff the run.
Bills 27, Vikings 16

Dolphins at Bears
Dolphins had the Packers dead to rights.  On the road, but against an inconsistent Bears team.  Should be close.
Dolphins 20, Bears 17

Saints at Lions
Saints are another soft team.  They’re lucky Megatron is gimpy, but not so lucky to be facing that Lions pass rush.  Saints smell off this year.
Lions 33, Saints 23

Panthers at Packers
Panthers are getting healthy, and Packers are without their starting corners.  Packers not dominant, but did rally to beat the Dolphins.  Possible upset here.
Panthers 28, Packers 24

Chiefs at Chargers
Chargers one of three teams (also Ravens, Lions) to have not allowed 100 points in 6 games.  Also, Rivers is playing lights out. 
Chargers 31, Chiefs 20

Cardinals at Raiders
Bruce Arians’s Cardinals lead the division.  Not the Niners.  Not the Seahawks.  The Cards.  Given the injuries the Cards have had, that’s no mean feat.
Cardinals 23, Raiders 20

Giants at Cowboys
Unless Romo really fucks this up…
Cowboys 31, Giants 17

49ers at Broncos
Manning against good defenses, not so good. 
Niners 27, Broncos 23

Texans at Steelers

Parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus

After 6 games last year, the Steelers were 2-4.  This year, 3-3.  Consider me thrilled.

Down the stretch last year, the offense notched 9 straight games where it scored 20 points or more (and the three games before that scored 19, 19, and 18).  This year’s model, the one that was supposed to carry the defense, has done that exactly twice in six shows.

Going by W-L-W-L-W-L, the logical assumption would be W, right?  Big MNF tilt at home, right?  Rally the troops, unleash hell, right?  Well, I hope you enjoyed the easy part of the schedule, because I’m seeing three losses:  Texans, Colts, Ravens.  After that, who knows, Jets, Titans, and a bye week may signal this team starting to improve.  Until then, the offense is out of synch, Ben gets wrapped up in the pocket when his OL crumples like wet newspaper, the stats are all between the 20s, and we keep racking up penalties.  I can see us taking the kickoff and using a timeout before the first snap.  Great coaching, great everything.

Defense, they’re rebuilding.  They have parts, but the only teams they shut down were a godawful Jaguars team, as yet winless, and a legless Panthers squad.  They’re not exactly striking fear into opposing teams, just their own fans.

Texans 30, Steelers 10; Watt 4 sacks

Yeah, if only we had a beast RB who could chew some clock for us.  If only.

Anyway, I honestly don't think the Cowboys D has superior personnel to our D.  They're just using them better.  

No doubt about that.  They were the statistically the worst defense in the league last season (just behind you-know-who).  Then they lost their best pass rusher (Ware), best LB (Lee) and other vets, replaced them with UDFAs and castaway cruft that was no longer in the league.  And now look at them.  Of course, it doesn't hurt that they pound the fucking ball about 30-35 times per game and dominate TOP.  So there's that.

The Steelers are a mess.

Hines is harshing Ben in public.   Says the no-huddle hasn't been working, and he's not wrong.  Ben had a bad game, but that's Ben, up and down.  He and Wheaton are working together this week to get on the same page (ummm, how about every week?). 

Mike & Mike was background this morning, and Jaws was on doing his Jaws thing.  Talking about how Flacco torched the Bucs, knowing exactly where the ball was going at the snap and getting it out.  IMO, the Ravens aren't a better offense, and Flacco is not as good as even up-and-down Ben, but why can he/they be so crisp in putting up almost 50 and our boys can't stop shitting the bed?  Why is Bell consistently getting <20 carries, or even <25-30?!  Why did we swap Cotchery for Moore if we're not going to use Moore?   How is the Ravens OL without their LT any better than the Steelers OL with Munchak?  Where is the blessed Munchak Effect? 

Then Jaws was exuberant (ain't he always) about the Dallas D.  Now let's let that sink in for a second.  Jaws credits Rod Marinelli with their resurgence, and frankly, I think he's right.  Because the personnel ain't much difference from last year's insipid slop. Jaws said the scheme is simple and they just get to the ball.  Sort of the opposite of the Steelers, where the scheme requires degree in quantum physics, a thorough knowledge of Sanskrit, and a photographic memory.  Oh, and fast to the ball?  Well, no.  We prefer to have our F7 flounder about ineffectively, like puppets on tangled strings, and have our ILBs and DBs trail receivers like they just woke up from a very deep sleep.  When was the last game where we didn't just "manage" to get to the QB and notch a statistical sack, but rather had every gap on fire with berserk rushers giving the over-manned OLinemen fits?  When was the last time you thought, "Oh, that was clever, they took an unexpected avenue to the QB?"  Fuck, every time, the blitzers line up, the OL knows where they're coming from, all is accounted for.  Ambush?  Surprise?  Pahhh.  Anyway, I honestly don't think the Cowboys D has superior personnel to our D.  They're just using them better. 

Well, we won't stop or slow Foster and the outside zone.  We won't contain Johnson or Hopkins, and some WR or TE who's done jack fucking squat till now will have a career day.
