Peyton Manning Losing Big Games

This is the first installment of a semi-regular feature here at Joboo. Periodically we’ll be checking in on everyone’s favorite common sense challenged forecaster, the Champ, and update everyone on how his predictions are looking. We know he tries to go out there for making these predictions, and for the interest of keeping the comedy flowing we’ll try not to be too harsh on the boy. If you’re interested in seeing how his first week of predictions are shaping up click that handy read more link. Read More

Eli v. Peyton tonight…anyone giving a damn? I love some football, but I’m not going to watch a minute of that game. Hell, I might not watch a minute of any NFL today if the Champ is so intense on the Lions game that he refuses to watch Carson Palmer (Doherty and I’s Greaty White Fantasy Hope) against Larry Johnson, even on commercials. Champ is already into degenerate gambler mode. Sweating out both the Bears/Packers and the Eli Bowl and it’s not even 1pm : “did Boomer just say the Packers have no shot?” Um, I wasn’t giving a damn, but probably. On the bright side, it leads into a Brett Favre package, so I get to check and make sure the Last button is working on the remote.

By the way, when this day ends and there is no NFL Primetime on ESPN…blame NBC. And the Mannings. Primetime is only listed for air tomorrow afternoon. Boomer and TJ are apparently still doing highlights on Sunday nights, just not calling it Primetime…this is not going to work out well.

What I’m giving a damn about today, because I’m certainly not giving enough of a damn about Business Enterprises and Criminal Procedure:

Denver at St. Louis at 1pm: Why, first game of Champ’s parlay, he says. Want to get his pain and suffering out of the way before he gets too many Bud Lights in him.

Philadelphia and Houston, this fool Mario Williams is going to kill McNabb…or, do nothing and get a lot of comments such as “Reggie Bush could have been here?” etc…As an Eagles fan, I haven’t been giving much of a damn about this season because the way I see it, either they’ll win or they won’t. By win, I mean contend for a Super Bowl…or they won’t do anything at all (kind of like last season). There won’t be a middle ground for this team, so why live or die with each game?

Tampa Bay and Baltimore interests me for some reason…I’m not really sure why. Maybe just because I want to see Ray Lewis beaking on Chris Simms.

Kansas City and Cincy is definitely the top game of the afternoon and should be very entertaining to get the season started.

It’s 12:55 and I’m just now realizing that Joe Buck is doing the FOX pre-game and James Brown is on CBS? And I learned this from the info button, not actually seeing Joe Buck on the pre-game? The games could be awful, but I’m happy to have not learned that fact first hand.

For the second week in a row South Carolina has a primetime SEC match-up televised on ESPN (7:45 Eastern on the mothership). This is just another sign that South Carolina is a team on the rise. This is going to be a much tougher test for than last week for the Gamecocks but don’t let the 15 points scored against Mississippi State scare anyone of the Gamecocks’ bandwagon. Don’t think for a second that Spurrier was saving a few things for this week. He is that type of sneaky bastard that would sandbag against an inferior team like Mississippi State just to surprise the Bulldogs. Read More

For a system that is designed to make sure that the officials make the right call, one would hope that maybe you should consider getting that to work correctly before rolling it out there. Of course I’m talking about the NFL and instant replay as most recently highlighted by Nick Saban’s half-hearted attempt to challenge a play in the season opener in Pittsburgh on Thursday night. Obviously, as the rule stands Saban was most likely in the wrong in that situation but that certainly doesn’t mean the rule itself isn’t bullshit. Read More

Here at Joboo we’ll be wrapping up our predictions for the upcoming NFL season in anticipation of the regular season getting underway Thursday night. We’ve already took the time to go through the AFC and NFC in previous posts so if you’re a first time visitor go ahead a take a look back at those. This post is dedicated primarily to picking the champions of each conference and the eventual Super Bowl winner. If we had the time or desire to figure out the actual playoff structure and predict the number of wins for each team we could lay out the actual playoff brackets, but hey you’re reading this for free so really that would probably be asking too much considering I’m sitting here writing this post in Business Enterprises. . .anyway on to the picks Read More

Sometimes folks come to this blog via search engines. Sometimes they come in expecting one thing and getting something completely different.

Cecil not lettin' the man get him downBy the way, we have no clue what the dozen or so people per day come in looking for when they find this blog with a search term of “huge ass”. But, hey, welcome.

In this thread, I’ll try to help some of this visitors out.

One user came in with the search term of…

“how long is cecil collins in jail?”

Very good question. I don’t have the exact answer, but can say that whenever he does get out, he’s going to violate parole within six months and land his ass right back in there.

This is the first annual Joboo NFL predictions. You may ask can it be annual if its the first one ever, and the answer would be it’s our Blog and we’ll do what we want to. No one here at the site claims to be an expert on anything so if anyone disagrees or has some info that would change our minds please feel free to comment and drop some knowledge. We certainly are not smart enough to accurately predict each team’s number of wins but we will list them top to bottom in order of finish, and as an added bonus an * gives our prediction for the wild card teams. Part II will cover the NFC and then we’ll have a finale that should lay out the playoff picture. Hope you enjoy and let us know what you think. Read More
