I see the pros have the Vikings picked by 3.5 for this weekends game. I didnt look at it before they switched Qb's did they give the Vikes the extra points after the Qb change?

Another thing they have the 0-2 Chargers over the Jets by 9. Pretty big spread for having the gun slinger Favre on the Jets.

If I was a betting man, I would place some money on the Charger/Jets game!

Since the 14th/15th the spread hasn't changed much. Some have moved up 0.5 and others have moved down 0.5 pts. The QB change didn't seem to have much effect.

It didn't have much effect cause "it's the system". As Denny would say, it's the car, anyone can drive it. And no one can play like we play when we play.

I wouldn't go and say they are worse than the vikes, SD has a much better team than the them. They just haven't found their "spark" yet.

SD lost their first game due to a last second touchdown pass by none other than the QB visiting the Dome on Sunday. Then of course they were done in by a bad call against Denver this week. They are two plays away from being a 2-0 team. Their defense seems a little weaker than they were projected and have let the other team stay in the game. They were supposed to be a top defense this year but aren't showing it so far.

Merriman being out for the year doesn't help them any.

They're my fantasy defense. So far, its been less of a fantasy and more like a nightmare.

(well, not that bad... but not that good either)

Didn't SD start out worse last year, only to finish red hot?

I dont think you get the point. If the right call is made against the broncos last week would you be thinking different about the chargers and their start? I think we all know the answer. The chargers are going to take out their frustrations on the jets. It will be at least a 2TD win for the bolts.

Yeah, I get the point. The point was the Chargers 0-2 record is not indicative of the team's performance. They are very competitive and if they would have got two breaks they'd be 2-0. Such is life.

If anyone thinks that the Vikings are a two breaks away from 2-0 they are sorely mistaken.

Ahh, gotcha, I was wondering there what you were getting at. I agree with you too, the Chargers have something in store for Broadway Brett.

    • LOL.  It's so brave of you to join the 85%.
    • Why would they bother cutting a measly 8 to 10 trillion from the debt?   And why would they consult with a kook like Rand Paul?      
    • First, I am Christian and I'm not ashamed of it.  Second, the 1st amendment to our US Constitution guarantees that the government shall not make any laws respecting the establishment of religion or the free exercise thereof.    This means that the government is not permitted to endorse or decide for the people what religion, if any, the people will follow. At the same time, there is nothing in the law that declares that we the people are restricted from expressing our personal religious views or beliefs. Therefore, it is well within my rights to share my Christian views whenever I wish except I cannot use government property or my position as a representative of the government as a forum to do so.
    • Drum roll please................. The clear cut winner was the sinking radish seed by a 4-1 margin over the floaters. I even gave the floaters an extra day to pop up but they didn’t. I know come planting time I am going to check my radish seed this way. I also hear this works for tomato seed so that may be my next experiment but not till I am ready to start growing my tomatoes. Peppers come to mind as another seed to try out.   Now the radish I have seeded will not go to waste I saw a program where a guy plants radish and lets it grow to about three inches then cuts the top two and half inches off. He sells the tops to restaurants who use it on plates and also in sandwiches. You are suppose to be able to eat the tops at this stage and it tastes like radish... Kind of like eating sprouts but only eating the top of the new growth not the bottom...
    • Yep, I have noticed that too. That is a good thing to have in your back pocket in playoffs and you get caught in your zone for an icing or who knows what reason where you cannot switch lines OR just to have flexibility with matchups line vs line, but faceoff on one side vs the other.
    • Meh, his exacts words were " I tried to set myself on fire."   Setting yourself a blaze is fairly simple and effective if you want to be on fire.   I'll put him in the bat poop crazy, drama queen Zoloft category along with a former girlfriend.   You know, the one that chokes down a handful of Bayer and chases it with a fifth of vodka then proceeds to call 911 right after. Then everyone has to listen why, all the while there was no real danger.   
    • To be honest, I think of the cross as representing a burial site of a fallen soldier.  I don't necessarily even think religion when I look at the thing. In my opinion it is not even a religious symbol in that context. But that's just me.
    • The reversible plank is what they were carrying when I picked it up.  I've just been calling it carsiding because it's what most people are more familiar with.    I have that all stained and polyurethaned on the smooth side.  To me the bead side looks kind of dated.
    • Something else to keep in mind. When I was bow hunting I learned judging distance is not as easy as one might think. The bow I used was not super fast so judging a deer to be at 30 yards when it was really 40 yards would mean missing.    In my experience, we over-estimate distance sometimes by quite a lot on open areas such as open fields or on a lake. On an open area one doesn't have anything to provide a size reference so we tend to think objects are closer than they really are. Sometimes we can be off by quite a bit.   It works just the opposite in the forest where we have lots of references for size. Most of the time when a guy says he shot his deer from 50 yards it is probably a good bet that it was not quite that far. Personally, I don't like to get too close to anyone else. When on open water I rarely fish where others are. This can sometimes work against me as there is probably a reason for them being there. When ice fishing I try to stay 50 yards or more away from others. At the very least, I don't want to be close enough that our lines could become crossed when handling fish. 
    • Exactly.     We don't need to compete with Christians and their War on Xmas for the King Crybaby award.
