Sunday Money – 6-Pack

PREDICTION #5 – More fireworks for Owens

Earlier this week, I suggested we got a glimpse of the REAL Terrell Owens, in last week’s Bengals vs. Colts game. It was obvious that Owens was moping on the field, in Indy.

He alligator-armed a pass across the middle; which ended up becoming an interception. He didn’t even reach for a catchable ball, deep down the sideline. And, he walked back to the line of scrimmage when the Bengals were in a no-huddle, hurry up offense, in the final minute of the game.

It was pretty easy to view Carson Palmer’s frustration, and ultimate displeasure …..

Now, I’ll ask you ….. if Terrell Owens pulled such crap with Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, what would happen? That’s right, he wouldn’t see a ball coming in his direction for a LONG FREAKIN’ TIME.

If Carson Palmer has any guts, he’ll do exactly that, on Sunday.

Of course, that will cause Owens to finally implode into the irrational, self-centered narcissist that really lies beneath the uniform. It’s coming Sunday …. I’ve just got a feeling.


You can save all the warnings of “playing down to the competition” and “any given Sunday” crap. That ain’t happening, in Charlotte, this weekend.

Yeah, I recall the Charlie Batch and Dennis Dixon games.

I know Charlie Batch, I see Charlie Batch, I hear Charlie Batch ….. and Brian St. Pierre is NOT Charlie Batch. I think Ray Lewis would say the very same thing …..

The Ravens are favored over the Panthers by 10 points. Give up every single one of those points – you won’t be sorry. I don’t care about slow 1st halves on the road or anything else, this is easily the biggest mismatch of the week.

If you’re headed to Carolina, you’ll be handsomely rewarded. If you’re staying home, you’ll likely start losing interest in the 3rd quarter.

Ravens 37 – Panthers 9

Have a great weekend ……
