Reverend's Rants & Picks Contest Week Three

Reverend's Rants & Picks Contest Week Three

The Week's Lines.


  • You only pick one team against the spread.
  • Once you select the team they are unavailable to you for the remainder of the season.
  • It is NOT a survival pool. The highest winning percentage at Week 15 will be awarded the prize. If there are ties, we'll decide in Weeks 16 and 17 by increasing the number of games selected incrementally.
  • You don't need to pick every week. But you must make ten selections between Week One and Week Fifteen. If you picked in Week One you do not need to pick in Week Two if you don't like the games.
  • Picks are due by kickoff of the early games Sunday. Picks will only be accepted in the comments of THIS post.

(Home Team in CAPS)

CHICAGO -7 St. Louis

DALLAS -8 Tampa Bay

San Francisco -7 MINNESOTA

Detroit -3.5 TENNESSEE

WASHINGTON -3 Cincinnati

New York Jets -3 MIAMI

NEW ORLEANS -8.5 Kansas City

Buffalo -3 CLEVELAND

INDIANAPOLIS -3 Jacksonville

Philadelphia -3 ARIZONA

SAN DIEGO -3 Atlanta

(Side note: Both these teams are undefeated and the game will be blacked out in San Diego. Get this team somewhere else, NFL.)

Houston -2 DENVER

Pittsburgh -3.5 OAKLAND

BALTIMORE -3 New England

Currently there are 54 entrants in the picks contest. If you haven't entered a selection yet you are not ineligible. You simply must make your first selection by Week Five. This week I'm taking Your 2012 Chicago Bears. I wouldn't have touched it at 9.5 but I like it at 7.

  • Newton's Theory of Gravitas:

    If you act a fucking Jamarcus Russel like bitch when you suck, then people think you are a punk.

  • Indianapolis -3

  • Is this creepy or cool, I can't decide:

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I wouldn't want one but they are very cool. I can't imagine how much time she spends on them.

  • Miami +3

  • The NFL says to refs: I drink your milkshake! I drink it up!

  • And great, meta rant Rev. Love the passion as always.

  • I wish I knew the fuckin prize for the picks contest.

  • In reply to Crown:

    Its back in a previous thread. I can't remember what it is but seemed like it was worth making a few picks for.

  • Houston -2


  • bbbwwwwaaaahhhhaaaahhhhaaaa!!!!! REV!!!

    Rev the "No Respect of DaBearsBlog"

    ....even Gilligan has a theme song...hahahahahahahahah

  • Someone help me out here, check out this blog to the right here, Da' Urban Rooster'. The guy who writes it is named Walter 'Butch' Brzesky, why do I know his name? Did he used to post here or did he just post a lot over on the Trib or Sun Times? Anyone else recognize his nombre?

  • In reply to ben in norcal:

    He used to post comments all the time on sports articles either on the Trib or Sun-Times sites. Pretty sure it was the S-T's.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Thanks, Canada. I thought I recognized that name, and I do remember quite the cast of characters as far as commentors on Brad Biggs' blog at Sun Times from a few years ago. I still see a couple of those handles when I'm scrolling down the comment section of almost anything Bears-related at PFT.

    Weird place this internet is. It's like a bar that never closes, and as Doc Nitty once put it awhile back, it's like a bar where everyone's screaming over one-another. Sorry Nitty, I'm sure those weren't the exact words but I think that was the gist.

  • In reply to ben in norcal:

    WHAT DID YOU SAY??!!!???

  • In reply to gpldan:


  • In reply to gpldan:


  • Buffalo - 3

  • Jets at -3. rushing attack and rush defense show up.


  • Hey MB, if you have time and are into architecture, the architecture cruise on the Chicago River is awesome. Just keep an eye out for Dave Mathews tour bus when you go under the bridges. Boo-Yah! Also, if they are still renting bikes in Grant Park, a ride on the path on Lake Michigan can't be beat.

  • Indianapolis -3

  • San Francisco -7

  • Detroit -3.5

  • Jets-3

  • Indi -3

  • For god's sake Jeff. Give the man his theme song.

  • Fuck yeah

  • MB...I'm in Chicago staying at the W on Lakefront. Hit me up if you want to grab a beer't any of you other fools be crank emailing me!! HAHA

  • In reply to 505 Bears!!:

    just sent you an email my maings.

  • MB...did you get some?

  • In reply to Viva:


    Let's just say that not ALL packer fans hate bears fans ALL the time.

    I made the packers slightly pay for their insolence last week. I'll leave it at that to protect everyone involved.

  • Damn.. That rant was funny. Why have I avoided these?

  • You've avoided these?

    I enjoyed the whole Saturday Show last year and am sorry to see it cut down to just the rant. But the rant was always my favorite part.

    The Rev is clearly a talented guy with rage issues.

  • Yeah, Jeff. Bring back the Sat show. I always looked forward to those, though the Rant was my fav.

  • I miss the Saturday show too, especially some of the original songs and the humor. Like Doc said, give the Reverend his theme song.

  • Shit, Jeff sells 40,018 T-shirts, and you're asking him to do the Saturday show for free? Shit, might as well ask Brees to take a pay cut...

  • In reply to SC Dave:

    And triple shit, since I only used two there.

  • MB went MIA....think he is half in the bag drunk as shit...Thoughts? haha

  • In reply to 505 Bears!!:

    On his way to Chi.

  • Thought he'd be here by now...let's all go have some beers....on me..but only if it is PBR!! haha

  • In reply to 505 Bears!!:

    $2 special on the 16oz cans, baby.

  • Miami +3

  • Indy -3

  • Upset special of the week. Bucs over Cowgals, and watch ole Jer and gang point fingers and tear apart at the seams.

  • Chicago -7

  • Bears. Feels good to say

  • Miami +3

  • Damn, so much for hoping Te'o goes under the radar this year, so he can drop to us in the draft...

  • Not to sure he would fall to the 32nd pick... fingers crossed though.

  • He's looking like a top 10 pick, and if he plays every game like tonight possibly a top 5. He's a beast in this Michigan game!

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    yep. Don't think he'll fall to us at 32 unfortunately... THUS... we need to make the move up this year like we should have for Kluchey. We just need to maings. We need our franchise in the middle, and we ain't gettin him off the 3rd round garbage heap

  • Cincy +3

  • I would have taken the bear but so far both my picks have resulted in around 20pt losses for my teams. Couldn't give two figs about the bengals losing though.

  • Chicago -7

  • San Francisco

  • NITTY!!!

    Found a ticket on Ebay from same buyer that I purchased mine from, in the same section and same odds are good that the original buyer fell through and its a relist from the same cluster of seats. And estimated shipping would get it to you in the next two weeks.

    I'll look you up online tonight on PS3.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

  • Indianapolis -3

  • Da Bears -7

  • Chicago Bears -7!

  • Buffalo -3

  • Dang, who'd I use in week 1? To the archives!

  • Chicago Bears -7

  • In reply to BobbyDouglass:

    Seems early to use the homer pick, but que sera sera.

  • Bears -7

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Since I will fucking BE THERE bitches.

    So fucking excited...

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Have fun MB. For that 16th game, you better have your ass tailgating by now.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    thanks Corm... I will leave that up to the locals to set up. I will show up at whatever is planned.

    Johnny, coach... you guys working on something for us all?

  • Detroit -3.5

  • Shady you fuckstick… are you seriously not going to make an effort to hang out? I’ll buy you a couple rounds, you ass.

    GP? Coach? Johnny? Murph? Anyone? Let's hook up tonight maings. Would like to meet you guys. No plans after the game tonight as of yet, but will have to celebrate somewhere. Hopefully find a packers chick (again...there seem to be tons of them here for some reason!?!?) to celebrate on... I mean... with.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Watch out for those Packer chicks. Many or most of them can probably drink you under the table. Remember your only 40-50 miles from Wisconsin. Lots of overlap in the fan bases.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    indeed Corm, indeed.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Two words: Bro. Rape.

  • Don't ever ask me for pussy layers again MB if you're not going to go. But, enjoy the game.

  • In reply to Crown:

    If you hadn't moved away, I would have demanded you meet me right now for mimosas (or bloody's... I hate them cause tomato juice if fucking evil) and fucking bacon.

    Tonight I will exact revenge for the bear nation, and in your name Crown!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I can't handle the bloodys either, but you better celebrate on a female tonight. Have fun in the finest city in the world.

  • St. Louis +7

  • In reply to Shady:

    You're welcome.

  • RAMS +7

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    This week's "KISS OF DEATH" pick.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:


  • Pittsburgh -3.5

  • Lions -3.5

  • Indy -3.....sorry, forgot I already took the Lions.

  • Hmm, no pick again for me this week either. There isn't much there, although I was a little tempted to go for NE with the points. But don't know I want to burn them out just yet, plus BAL isn't exactly the safest to pick against...

    Live another day I guess...
