Thread: Peter King is a tool

  1. #41
    Of all the games King picked, this is the only upset he chose according to the spreads. I don't really have a problem with it, games with spreads of 3 are usually a toss up regardless.

    This was my point. I could see us losing this game, but by 2 TDs would be a big surprise and a complete reach pick by King not really backed by anything.

    Personally, if I had no rooting interest, I would not touch this game betting-wise....

    The only problem is, is that you're making this up, the line opened at Jets -3, which is consistent with a pickem game and 3 points given only because of home field advantage, "so much money" moved the line 1/2 a point.

    Who would lay -6.5 to have a team that couldn't score all preseason or protect its QB against Mario Williams and Co?

    No one would, that's why the line never was -6.5.
    Sorry, I was .5 off

    You're not making a good case here.

    This article was posted April 20th. Before the draft, before training camp and before pre-season.

    Those lines are about as relevant today as the lines from week 17 2011.

    So if somebody placed a bet on the Bills +6 on April 20th, it is not relevant and would not be honored?

    I disproved your theory a few posts back. You have zero knowledge of how lines move and what constitutes "sharp" money and "suckers" money. You also don't understand how meaningless lines set in April are to the lines set the week before the game (as is the norm in the NFL from week 2 and on.).

    Of course it's honored.

    But nobody with a clue would place a bet 5 months before the game is actually played.

    Lol. I think it's pretty clear TX isn't a gambling man. If it's such a good bet put your $ where your mouth is. That ideal is why the only week 1 power rankings that matter are the Vegas over/under wins you can actually bet on.

    Even Cimini picked the Jets 20-17!

Detroit was drastically different in 2011 than in 2010. San Fran was drastically different in 2011 than in 2010 as well.

    Buffalo upgraded their pass rush in Mario Williams and Mark Anderson. They got back their #1 CB, #1 S, #1 DT, #C, #LG and #1 RB from injury. Most of those missed the final 7 games of last season.

    Ask the Pats if the Bills have talent on their roster. The Bills were only 1 of 3 teams to beat them last season.
    The only people who thought the Lions were terrible in '10 are the idiots that only look at W/L records. They had a -7 point differential while playing without their starting QB for most of the year, against a very difficult schedule.

    The people who thought the Lions were bad probably also thought that the Bucs and Chiefs were good because they won 10 games.

    Mario Williams continues to be one of the most overrated players in the NFL. He doesn't make a defense by himself, or the Texans' defense wouldn't have been so bad for so many years. Mark Anderson had a great year last year, playing for a bad New England defense, as their #2 pass rusher. I see a Ray Edwards-esque year ahead for him.

    Really? You're trying to use a line from before the draft and most of OTAs?

    No one who bets weekly puts their Week 1 money down in April. The line isn't down because of money that poured in, but because they put out new lines before Week 1.

    I did last night on the Cowboys and will do so Sunday on the Jets. As i expect every to be on the Bills, i am waiting for the line to drop a little more before I actually place the wager.

    It's sh*t like this that I really don't get.

    Last night, the Cowboys put together a damn good defensive scheme against the Giants, limited them to only 17 points and pulled out a victory.

    IMO, the Jets have a better defense than the Cowboys and I don't believe I'm really go out on a limb when I say that.

    We play the Bills. A team with a QB who has never beaten us. The Bills overall are not as good of a team as the Giants.

    I figure this game to be a cake walk. And yet you've got this idiot Peter King who thinks because the Jets are outspoken that they couldn't possibly know how to win a game. As though doing things exactly as Bill Bellichick would is a prerequisite to winning.

    In King's defense, it's gotta be hard to formulate correct opinions with that many c*cks and hoagies and Twinkies and Diet Cokes in your mouth.

    Yes, sorry meant TX should put his $ where his mouth is. In fact I think either of us would gladly take his wager!

    [QUOTE=BigBensAngel7;4582653][QUOTE=TheMikeIsHot;4582577]Because everyone seems to think because the Jets didn't score a TD in preseason that they won't score now.

    That is exactly what people are thinking.
    Not you again

    Also I love the fact that TX is getting absolutely sh1t on in this thread.

    The only thing worse than a pathetic old man who spends all day, every day on a rival team's messageboard? A pathetic old man who purposely LIES to conjure responses while spending all day, every day on a rival team's message board.

    Your existence is the saddest thing I've ever seen in my life.

    He is also from Texas. And is in his twilight years.
