If your like me, when it comes to two teams playing in the Super Bowl that you don’t care about, you have to find other things to bet on to keep you entertained. We all know, this is going to be a boring game. So lets take a look at all the prop bets that you can make to keep yourself entertained!
After a 2-2 week, I should not be trusted with my picks. I did not foresee the Packers playing such terrible defense and Joe Flacco doing his best Payton Manning impression. Nonetheless, here are Crazy Craig’s championship picks:
Game 1: San Francisco at Atlanta. The 49ers are good… Errr, the 49ers have a great quarterback. The overall attack of kaepernick is remarkable to watch. But the Falcons defense stopped someone who is better than Kaepernick, Russel Wilson. They will do it again this week. Falcons win: 28-21
Game 2: Tom Brady is amazing. I don’t know how he does what he does most of the time. The Pats high power offense will be ready to go! Wait… They are missing their best receiver. Uncle Ray Ray and Flacco get revenge from last year and win: 35-21
These are my crazy ass picks. To tell you the truth, I’m not confident in my picks also. What do you think?
In the latest drama to come out of sports, Chip Kelly, who said no to an NLF coaching contract a week ago, has agreed to become head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Not much is known about the the contract yet.
This is the first college coach that Philly has brought in since Dick Vermeil in 1976. This is raising a lot of eyebrows around the college football circle that this may mean sanctions might be hitting Oregon soon. Is this a smart hire for Philly?
Game one: Baltimore and Denver. Ravens won the first game confidently, with the defense leading the show, but it would’ve been a different story with Payton Manning taking the snaps. Uncle Ray Ray gets introduced to the Mile High Club by Manning, Denver wins 28-10.
Game two: Green Bay and San Francisco. The niners are beat up… And pretty bad. Their QB can’t hit their most effective weapon Vernon Davis, but he can run like hell down the field. Aaron Rodgers is playing with a chip on his shoulder, and so is the Green Bay D. Can’t take the team whose stadium I’m currently looking at. Green Bay 35- San Francisco 21.
Game three: Seattle at Atlanta. Seattle is good. And I mean REALLY good. Solid D and fast O. Atlanta has been ruled underdog all year even though they have been nearly unstoppable though. Matty Ice 28- Seattle 21
Game four: Houston at New England. The texans couldn’t get the offense started last week and only won because Dandy Andy couldn’t hit the broadside of a barn. New England is automatic when it come to the playoffs, even though the fans have the worst accent in the states. New England 42 – Houston 10.
These are the week two playoff picks, who doubts the wizard?
If you want to be an elite QB in the NFL, you have to make plays. This game was a joke. The many times that you had to make plays, you didn’t. When your tight end has four drops in the first quarter, don’t throw to him. When AJ Green doesn’t get a pass thrown to him in the first half, there is something wrong!!! When you miss an open receiver in the fourth quarter to win the game… You lost my respect.
Until next year.
According to numerous sources around the NFL, it looks like Andy Reid will be the next coach of the
Cardinals Chiefs? In the beginning of the week, it was said that Arizona had him locked up and that a Reid would be there. It seems that the Chiefs are willing to give him a lot more control of the team and the decisions and Arizona wasn’t too keen on doing that. Reid was let go by the Eagles on MONDAY, and looks to be the first of the coaches let go to land a new gig (personally, I thought Lovie would be the first.) No details of the agreement have emerged, but an update will be added when more news comes in.
The NFL wrapped up its season in wild fashion yesterday, as week 17 came to an epic end as Washington beat Dallas to win the NFC East. Here is how the playoffs look starting next weekend:
1. Atlanta 2. SF 3. Green Bay 4. Washington 5. Seattle 6. Minnesota
1. Denver 2. NE 3. Houston 4. Baltimore 5. Indy 6. Cincy
Crazy Craig’s playoff prediction:
Game 1: Saturday,4:30pm : Cincy at Houston- Rematch from a year ago, these two teams have a lot to prove. The Bengals Defense is going to be too much to handle, Cincy wins 24-14
Game 2: Saturday, 8pm: Vikings at Green Bay: Aaron Rodgers has a chip on his shoulder. A very big chip. Vikings squeaked one out in week 17, but not 18. Packers 31-Vikings 21
Game 3: Sunday, 1pm: Indy at Baltimore: Baltimore wanted this match up, thinking that they can get to Luck early. Time and time again, Indy finds a way to win, but not this game. Baltimore wins 17-14
Game 4: Sunday, 4:30 PM: Seattle at Washington: This is going to be the best game of the entire playoffs I think. High powered offenses squaring off against each other. Seattle’s been putting up points like crazy, and Washington has a lot of momentum going into this game, but Seattle wins 38-35.
There are my playoff week one predictions. Though I expect to go 4-0, I could very well go 0-4 with how close all teams are talent wise. Do you disagree with any of my choices?
In a last ditch effort to keep the Giant’s season alive, I know of someone who might have risked money on this insane parlay. The Giants need a win on Sunday against the Seagulls in addition to having the Cowboys lose, the Bears Lose and the Vikings lose. All in all this doesn’t seem like a bad scenario considering the Lion’s are looking good and want to help accelerate CJ’s record breaking season, the Viking’s blow ball goats and the Cowgirls typically choke when around pressure.
I can already see you football fairies out there hating, but you better be ready for the Giants, because if they make this insane scenario play out, we’re looking at another World Championship Season! Everyone’s going to have a ring! HE GOT ONE TOO, HE GOT ONE TOO!!
MUST SEE VIDEO AFTER THE BREAK!!!
Jerry Rice, the greatest receiver that ever did it, just handed over his season record over to Calvin Johnson. Johnson is heading towards 2,000 yards for the season. And with big CJ breaking Jerry Rice’s all time high record of 1,845 back in 95′ by finishing the night with 1,892, he’s probably going to do it. Calvin is a beast, it’s not often that you hear so many talk so positive about someone of this caliber.
More importantly than Megatron breaking records and making defenders question their position, CJ just assisted with a great start to the final game of fantasy season. One step closer, and I really want to thank the 4 assholes that left him for me to pick in the first round.
The Shiva is about to be mine.
What’s it like to have lots of money, more than you know what to do with? Ask Arian Foster. He gave his entire O-Line Segways. You ask why? Because they would always look at him with jealousy and give him shit for riding his Segway around. To help them understand, you do what any asshole with million does, put them in your shoes.

I won’t lie. I’m not a big market guy. Growing up in Cincinnati and Metro Detroit, I usually HATE the amount of attention that athletes out of New York or LA get. But when athletes step up like these two guys did, it makes me happy that the stardom only means so much to them. After the tragedy that happened last week in Newtown, I think we were all left feel extremely lost and helpless. When the funerals for these innocent victims started to happen, no one could not know what the families of these innocent victims were going through. You would hear little stories of the victims that they were “the biggest Giants fan” or “the biggest Yankees fan” and you would think nothing of it. Two New York athletes let these families know that they really cared about the biggest fans.
CBSSports- Talk about throwing salt in a wound. A week ago RGlll’s blackness was being questioned and he was being called a cornball. Now he’s being fined $10,000 by the NFL (aka No Fun League) for wearing Adidas to a game he didn’t even play in. Credit to Adidas for signing on Griffin even though the NFL signed with NIke as their sponsor. I thought only Rev Run still rocked Adidas, I didn’t know they still existed, NIKE ALL DAY.
On a side note, some lucky charity is about to receive $10,000 from RGIII’s $21,000,000 bank account.
Holy Balls! Stop the presses! There is a “Quarterback Controversy” in the Meadowlands. In a story that grabbed the headlines today, it appears that Tim Tebow is not happy that former Alabama star Greg McElroy got the nod over him to start on Sunday. Tebow told reporters that he is puzzled at the decision and that he was wondering what the point of trading for him was in the off-season. When asked if he had been asked to be traded, he said “I have not been asked to be traded, yet.” The yet is a big sign that he is not happy riding the bench and he thinks he can be a starter somewhere. I am trying to think of possible destinations that I could see Tebow going to, and the only one that sticks out is Arizona… and if he didn’t make it as an NLF QB, his right wing political beliefs would make him the next candidate for governor of that state.
Mark Sanchez on the other hand has lost his starting position and it seems he might have lost his spot on the Jets. The noodle armed quarterback is apparently on the trading block according to multiple reports out of New York. The issue with this is, Sanchez has $8.35 million guaranteed in 2013, and sorry, no team is going to take that on. To get rid of Sanchez, the Jets are going to have to eat a lot of that contract which will put them even further behind in the rebuilding process. Not that this is a shock to anyone that remotely likes sports, but how did the Jets really think that Sanchez was really “Sanchize”? Who green lighted the deal to sign him through 2016? It boggles my mind that someone gets paid millions of dollars to take decisions, that are terrible decisions, and they still have jobs. Well, good luck with this debacle Jets organization, even though so many of us saw this coming a mile away.
UPDATE- Sources out of New York are saying that the Jets will release Tim Tebow at the end of the year and Sanchez will be traded or released if no suitors come about (which won’t happen). McElroy will be starting QB for the Jets in the 2013 season… how do you feel about this Jets fans?
It took over a decade, but we were finally shutout, this time by a team that hasn’t been able to beat us in over 34 years at home, but still they really shat all over the GMen today.
Once again the Giants are going to have to show everyone that wildcard champions exist. Now lets see a big win from the Steelers!
MMA - Last year Rachel Wray was a Kansas City Chief’s cheerleader and this year she’s kicking ass in the octagon. After Gina Carano (12-1-1 record) got her ass kicked in her last bout, who knew we would ever see another MMA beauty. Hopefully we can get to see her live in action.
Take at look at Rachel after the break with video of her in the octagon.
USAToday – The Indianapolis Colt’s wide out Reggie Wayne (who recently just signed an $18 Million dollar contract), had no idea that his old school 2007 Bentley went missing on Saturday. According to Police, the 21 year old valet at the hotel that Wayne was staying at thought it would be a good idea to take it for a joy ride.
What’s the problem with this? 21 year old kid gets a Bentley key handed to him, knowing that it’s just going to sit there for the night, and you expect him not to take advantage of it? Reggie Wayne needs to step up and just hand over the Bentley to the poor kid and get a new one… C’mon, son 2007 Bentley?!?!
It is time to say goodbye to Jim Schwartz in Detroit. This embarrassing season by the Lions leaves no doubt that he has to go if they want to be a winning team. He has lost control of his players, and this “defensive guru” has not shown us the genius that he has this year.
ESPN - The giants just brutally destroyed the Saints. Eli had 4 TDs, Wilson broke records and started doing back flips, the Giants D and Steve Brown had more yards off of Brees than most of his receivers… Football doesn’t get better than this.
NYPost – It’s amazing this whole time this madam really had me thinking she was just a soccer mom from the suburbs when in fact this bitch is really a business woman of the year. Not just anyone can prostitute, it takes a lot of discipline to continuously go round after round. Now she wants to go on Dr.Phil and air out all the dirty laundry of her high powered clients that kept in business for years. SEND HER BACK TO RIKERS!!!
