I'm predicting another embarrassing performance by the Titans tomorrow.
Will you see it live where you live? On TV or online?
It's a damn 3am kick-off for me, I think I'll just check the scores on my phone in the morning.

Added in 7 hours 24 minutes 50 seconds:

@nameless @Yettee, all the experts on ESPN (10 in total!) are picking the Falcons over Titans. Even our nameless has jumped ship!

I'll take Titans to win by 10, and Yettee has the Pats as a lock over the Bills.
Bring on the football!!

nameless, are you happy, son??

Shortly after the Ballon d'Or was held in 2018 I talked to a girl about it. She said that Modric didn't deserve it, and that she would rather that Ronaldo won again. I disagreed and pointed out how important Modric was for his team in the world cup. Her response: "But he's so ugly, though."

Hmmm, there's really not much more you can expect from any (feminine) women
in that regard. Having such arguments with women is setting one self up for a real
disappointment in most cases - hat down for the very, very few exceptions.

I my experience women tend to project their sexuality to any case up for judgement,
attaching some form of their (a)moral nature so that it gets that very sexual conotation -
or else it wouldn't make much sense to them.

Again, this is in clear correlation with their feminity, so more masculine women tend to
be more logic conversionalists.

PS. I had a bet some 12 years ago with a friend, betting on that Modric would lift d'Or
sometime in the future. This was while he was still a left winger in Dinamo Zagreb, only
having transferrred from their rivals Hajduk Split. You can imagine his shock building up
all those years...

Thanks Yettee, I got lucky with the Titans pick and Daniel Jones is looking good, despite the two picks.

The Falcons are a powder puff team. The Bills are much tougher. I'm taking the Bills to beat the Titans in the Titans' home stadium on Sunday.

@Yettee I need your lock of the week (c) for the upcoming week 5 action.

Nameless has taken Buffalo over his own team (Titans) but I will take the Titans to cover (-2.5).

It's a tough one. As Rumsfeld said, "... there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know."

There are some major known unknowns this week. Will Darnold play for the Jets? How about Josh Allen, for the Bills? If Josh Allen plays I might go for Buffalo, likewise Darnold for the Jets. In fact if I knew for sure that Darnold will play, and feeling more or less recovered from his bout with mono, then the Jets might well be the pick. But as these are unknowns... I'm going to take:

The Kid and the Giants +5.5 vs. the Vikings.

There we have it, friends. It's the Lock of the Week(c).

Lol, that was a classic quote from Rumsfeld. I remember this famous sentence even made the news down here.

Go Giants!

Even if the Titans win against the Bills that won't prove the Titans are a really good football team because the Bills are better than average but they aren't one of the top teams. The Titans would have to beat a team like the Chiefs in order for the Titans to be considered one of the top teams. But first they have to get through Buffalo with the win and I just don't think they can do it.

I'll take Buffalo by 5.

Okay, mate. I agree with you that beating the Chiefs would put the Titans in a different class.

Concerning this weekend's game: It looks like Josh Allen will be playing for the Bills. Damn!

Titans versus Bills halftime score:

Bills 7 Titans 0.

Titans OL looks like shit even though Taylor Lewan has returned. Plus, Titans FG Kicker Cairo Santos has missed 2 field goals in the first half.

Damn it!! Bills beat the Titans. Good pick, nameless. You picked the Bills to win by 5 and they win by seven.
Closest pick yet.

The Giants also went down today. This is a shit day!

A shit day for sure. Ya, the Bills were a good pick... they played the Pats tough the week before and they seem for real. The Giants are experiencing growing pains, once Saquon Barkley returns they should actually be a good team, but we will see.

In retrospect the Pats should have been an easy pick this week. I think they were only favored by a couple of touchdowns, but their huge win over the Raiders was easily predictable. Oh well, on to next week 8-)
