The Game. Edge: Chargers.

It's time for Notes from GameCenter - a list of a few stupid comments I found on's GameCenter and my thoughts on them.

Facebook friend Jay B. sent over some hilarious comments last week. Here are three:

1. "no ones mad lol. cards in niners r pathetic when we r winning and goin to playoffs."

Cards are in the Niners? GameCenter is getting kinda dirty. Speaking of which...

2. "Another thing a s s w h i p e ... STFU... jerlk off... in youre mothers face"

I can't add anything to make this comment more epic.

3. "ur moms isnt when her mouth isnt full...epiphan"

Ohhhh what a comeback! If only we could understand what it meant. I think that last word is supposed to be "elephant."

SAN DIEGO OFFENSE: Saying Philip Rivers is on fire is an understatement. Coming out of hibernation just in time for his annual December explosion, Rivers is 63-of-84 for 804 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions in the past three weeks. That's a completion percentage of 75 and a YPA of 9.6. No one's playing as good as him right now, save for maybe Drew Brees.

I see no reason why the Bastard of the Trident would slow down. The Lions have tons of injuries in their secondary, which would explain why they've been guilty of surrendering 280-plus yards to four of their previous five opponents.

The Lions also have issues stopping the run, thanks to their wide-nine formation. Each of their three previous opponents has gashed them for at least 100 rushing yards, so Ryan Mathews will once again serve as a solid complement to Rivers.

DETROIT OFFENSE: There's definitely going to be an offensive explosion at Ford Field this Saturday because the Lions will be able to torch San Diego's defense as well.

Matthew Stafford was brilliant in the fourth quarter last week, hooking up with Calvin Johnson on multiple occasions on two final drives, including one possession that went 99 yards. The Chargers have struggled versus aerial attacks all year due to a plethora of injuries (sound familiar?), so Ser Stafford and Megatron should be able to pick up right where they left off.

Kevin Smith's presence will obviously help Detroit's cause. Smith wasn't much of a factor last week, but the important thing is that he made it through the entire game unscathed. Now another week healthier, Smith figures to be a bigger part of the offense in this contest.

RECAP: I like the Chargers for two reasons. The Lions are just 2-7 against the spread in their previous nine games because they keep making stupid mistakes and shooting themselves in the foot with dumb penalties. They were able to get away with it against the slumping Raiders, but that's not going to fly against red-hot San Diego.

And second, it's not often that we can get points with one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL. If healthy, Rivers is always worth betting as an underdog - especially in December.

The Psychology. Edge: Chargers.
The Lions are two up on everyone out of playoff contention, so they don't need to win.

The Vegas. Edge: Lions.

    The Game. Edge: 49ers.

    More Notes of Jay B's GameCenter comments:

    1. "yaaay were a feild goal team.. so exiciting... s h i t need in the end zone.. gosh.."

    Maybe your team wouldn't be so bad if they didn't concentrate on pooping in the end zone. Gosh.

    2. "I think our d-fense as improve.. our offense as added some skill but smith as to make a good contact with the offense though.."

    So, you're saying it's OK if Joe Paterno doesn't report Smith touching the offense in its no-no special place?

    3. "n the matchup i call both teams eat ether lol"

    Sadly, this man's prediction that both teams would eat ether failed to come to fruition.

    SAN FRANCISCO OFFENSE: I wrote in my NFL Power Rankings that I compare this 49er team to the 2001 Bears. That Chicago squad had a great defense and special teams, but its dink-and-dunk offense, which worked well enough in the regular season, would eventually betray them in the playoffs.

    Most of what Smith does is dink and dunk. He does a good job of getting the ball out quickly, but there are hardly any big plays - the type of thing the Seahawks are susceptible to because of their young corners.

    The 49ers want to pound the rock with Frank Gore, and have Smith fire the ball to Vernon Davis and Miguel Lobsterbush so that they can make plays. The first part of that plan doesn't look like it would work on paper because Seattle is fourth versus the run (3.8 YPC), but that number has swelled to 4.3 in the past four weeks.

    If Gore runs well, as expected, San Francisco will be able to utilize its normal offense and score enough to win this contest. Because of its limitations and red-zone ineptness, I wouldn't expect the team to run away from the Seahawks, however.

    SEATTLE OFFENSE: Marshawn "Marcel" "Beast Mode" "Commander of the Skittle Warriors" "Green Skittle" "Runny Guy" Lynch has been great this year, perhaps motivated by the prospect of obtaining a new contract. However, like last week, Lynch will have issues finding running room.

    Lynch was bottled up for 42 yards on 20 carries last week by Chicago's elite defense. He scored two touchdowns to the delight of his fantasy owners, but I wouldn't expect him to find the end zone against the 49ers' No. 1 ground defense (3.2 YPC), who haven't allowed a rushing score all year.

    With Lynch presumably stymied, Tarvaris Jackson will have to move the chains on his own. He's actually done a decent job converting third downs this year, but doing so against San Francisco's elite defense will be quite a challenge. Aldon Smith and Justin Smith will definitely put immense pressure on Jackson, who is playing behind a patchwork offensive line.

    RECAP: Teams that win in blowouts on Monday Night Football usually cover the spread the week after (44-23 ATS since 1999), but I have an even better trend for you that goes against the 49ers.

    Since 1989, teams that have 11 victories or more are 27-56 against the spread as road favorites in the regular season. This has already affected the Packers twice this year (at Giants, at Chiefs). The logic here is that teams that have clinched playoff berth may not take away games that they're expected to win very seriously.

    Unit Change: I'm taking the Seahawks for two units. Along with the reverse line movement, there are a couple of situational angles in Seattle's favor, including the Big Al Trend I like to use (unrested home dogs are 95-48 against the spread off a straight-up road win vs. team coming off home win.)

    The Psychology. Edge: None.
    No psychological edge.

    The Game. Edge: Eagles.

    More Notes from GameCenter: I've been posting some comments from perverted users directed at hot chicks on GameCenter, most of which came from a creeper named Aaron3619.

    Last week, I listed some of Aaron's pervy comments:

    I also wrote that the StrikerSarah thing intrigued me:

    I wrote: "What question is Aaron3619 going to ask? It couldn't have to do with 'naked pic or bikini pic,' could it?"

    Well, we have our answer:

    I called it! Seriously, how good am I? It's like I can predict the future, or something. Well, as long as the future doesn't have to do with NFL games this year. BURN!

    DALLAS OFFENSE: Tony Romo is having a great year, but everything he's done thus far doesn't matter. We've been here before. We've seen Dallas have the No. 1 seed in the playoffs. How Romo performs from this point forward is what's really crucial because he's struggled in crunch time throughout his entire career.

    Romo actually had one of his worst outings this season against the Eagles back in Week 8. He went just 18-of-35 for 203 yards, one touchdown and an interception. The problem was that he was sacked a whopping four times.

    I wouldn't expect that to happen again. Rookie right tackle Tyron Smith was confused by Philadelphia's wide-nine formation. He recently talked about how he learned to adjust for that scheme, so I would be shocked if he has another poor performance.

    The Cowboys will be able to run all over the Eagles. Felix Jones is showing off the same type of running ability that he displayed in the preseason, which prompted me to slot him really high in my fantasy rankings. Philadelphia's inability to stop the rush is pretty well documented, and I see no reason why that would suddenly improve in this department.

    PHILADELPHIA OFFENSE: While the Eagles are anemic versus ground attacks, the Cowboys are just as porous against the pass. This was evident in that aforementioned Week 8 matchup when QB Dog Killer torched the secondary, going 21-of-28 for 279 yards and two touchdowns to go along with 54 rushing yards on seven scrambles.

    Now that QB Dog Killer and all of his receivers are healthy, Philadelphia's aerial attack should be expected to have a repeat performance.

    I haven't even touched on LeSean McCoy yet, who is the Eagles' best skill-position player in a very long time. Though Dallas is decent versus the run (11th; 4.1 YPC), McCoy wreaked havoc upon its front seven in the prior meeting, rushing for a whopping 185 yards and two touchdowns on 30 carries. And at this point, I don't need to mention how important it is for Andy Reid to remember to give McCoy enough touches.

    RECAP: I'm kicking myself for last week's Eagle prediction. I wrote that I expected the Jets to triumph unless either the Giants or Cowboys suffered a defeat, since victories by both teams would have meant that Philadelphia would have been eliminated from the playoffs. The Giants went down early, but I never changed my selection. It was for no units though, so it's not the end of the world or anything.

    But it's the same situation this week. If the Giants beat the Jets at 1 p.m., the Eagles will be out of it, so they obviously won't have the motivation to play Dallas tough. If, however, the Jets are victorious, I'll fully expect the Eagles to win this game.

    I have the Giants winning, so I'm tentatively picking the Cowboys. But definitely stay tuned. I'll have an update on this selection Saturday afternoon, right before 4 o'clock Eastern.

    GIANTS-JETS UPDATE: As of this writing, the Giants are up, 20-7. If they hold on, and it looks like that's going to happen, this game means nothing to either team. I'm sticking with my Dallas pick, but for no units.

    The Psychology. Edge: None.
    This game wouldn't mean all that much to the Cowboys (all they have to do is win in Week 17) if they weren't out for revenge.

    The Game. Edge: Packers.

    If you followed my 2011 Fantasy Football Rankings this summer and you're wondering which players to start, I've got you covered. You can check out my Fantasy Football Start Em, Sit Em page (will be posted tonight) as well as my Weekly Fantasy Football Rankings, which will be updated by Wednesday afternoon each week.

    CHICAGO OFFENSE: There's no line on this game as of Tuesday evening because Vegas apparently believes that Jay Cutler might be able to play. This clashes with ESPN Chicago's report that Josh McCown will be the starter.

    McCown's no good, but he can't be any worse than Cannon Ball Caleb Hanie, who threw nine interceptions in four games. As long as McCown takes care of the football, the Bears should have some success moving the chains because Green Bay's defense is atrocious in every aspect. The secondary has been awful ever since losing stud safety Nick Collins to a season-ending injury, while a non-existent pass rush has racked up just three sacks in the past four weeks.

    The run defense is bad too - four consecutive 100-yard rushing performances allowed to the opposition - so this is where the Bears will have most of their success. Kahlil Bell looked pretty good last week, both as a runner and a pass-catcher out of the backfield.

    GREEN BAY OFFENSE: Aaron Rodgers was arguably playing better than any quarterback in NFL history earlier in the season, but that's definitely not the case anymore. There have been too many injuries to the offensive front, while Greg Jennings' absence allowed the Chiefs to challenge the receivers at the line of scrimmage and play man-to-man.

    I expect the Bears to employ the same strategy. Jordy Nelson is not a No. 1. James Jones is inconsistent. Donald Driver is too old. Randall Cobb isn't seasoned enough. Whom does Rodgers have to throw to besides Jermichael Finley, and how can he get the ball to the right spot with no time in the pocket?

    Rodgers will have to do it all by himself because Chicago's run defense has been downright prolific the past five weeks. Since Week 11, the Bears have surrendered just 2.8 YPC, which is good for first in the NFL.

    RECAP: I like the Bears for several reasons:

    1. I mentioned the obvious one below. No team in the past 25 years that has started 12-0 or better and then lost for the first time has won its next game. No victories against the spread. No victories straight up.

    2. As I hinted above, the Packers have major flaws. The defense has sucked all year, but now the offense is shaky because Rodgers has lost his best receiver and two key linemen.

    The Packers have failed to cover three of their past five contests. One of the two occasions that they actually beat the spread was at Detroit on Thanksgiving. The Lions could have won that game if Kevin Smith hadn't gotten hurt and Ndamukong Suh wasn't thrown out for stomping on a lineman. 3. The Packers may not even have anything to play for. If the 49ers lose to the Seahawks, Green Bay will have the No. 1 seed locked up. That could be a reason there's no spread posted yet.

    4. A trend that favors Chicago: Excluding Week 17 games, road divisional teams are 52-28 against the spread since 2002 (6-0 this year) when coming off a non-divisional loss as a favorite.

    There's no line posted yet, so stay tuned. I'll probably make this a three-unit wager.

    LINE POSTED: Because this game depends entirely on what happens in the 49ers-Seahawks contest, I'll have a precise pick posted Sunday afternoon. I'm taking the Bears either way, but the unit total hinges on whether San Francisco loses or not.

    OFFICIAL PICK: Item No. 3 doesn't apply because San Francisco won, but I still like the Bears for two units.

    The Psychology. Edge: Bears.
    The Packers have to feel deflated after that first loss. No team in the past 25 years that has started 12-0 and then lost has won its next game.

    The Vegas. Edge: Bears.
    As expected, tons of action on the Packers.

    The Game. Edge: Saints.

    It's Monday Night Football, but we're going to have Mike Tirico, Ron Jaworski and Jon Gruden calling the shots instead of the great preseason homers like Kevin Reilly, Don Tollefson and Herm Edwards, and inept ESPN guys Emmitt and Matt Millen. Here's what it would sound like if those five clowns were calling this game:

    Kevin Reilly: Welcome to Atlanta, home of the Dirty Bird Falcons! In tonight's game, the Falcons take on the Saints, unless, guys, I'm sorry to break this to you like this, but I have a bomb strapped to my chest. Michael Vick is my favorite player, and I'm going to prove my loyalty to him by blowing up his former team!

    Emmitt: Mike, this is the fifth time in three week, or year, that you have talked about settin' up somebody the bomb. The Falcon have not doned anythin' wrong, so why do you want to blowed... uhh... blewed... uhh... blowed them up?

    Reilly: Emmitt, you don't understand because you're not a true Eagles fan. Lots of Eagles fans have given up on Michael Vick because he hasn't been as good this year, but I want to prove to Michael Vick that I'm his man through thick and thin. Bombs away!

    Herm: No bomb! No bomb! No bomb! Think about it! Think about it! Think about it! There are other ways! Other methods! Other strategies! Other plans! There doesn't have to be an explosion! No boom! No bang! No kaboom! No kazang! No... uhh...

    Reilly: I don't know why I didn't blow you up years ago, Herm. This was the greatest mistake in my life.

    Emmitt: Mike, I think the Herm on to somethin'. You say you love Michaels Vick. But that do not mean you have to blewed... uhh... blowed... uhh... blewned... uhh... I forget.

    Tollefson: Sorry to interrupt you, Emmitt. I have to ask Kevin Reilly something before he explodes. What do you plan on doing with your concubines? Can you leave them to me in your will?

    Reilly: Concubines? What are you talking about?

    Tollefson: I'm sorry, I just naturally assumed that all men possessed at least a half-a-dozen concubines, you know, women to have around to cook, clean and have sex, since that's all they're good for. I personally have 84 concubines, and I'd like to add more to my collection.

    Reilly: You know what, Don? I'm tired of your sexist remarks. Maybe I should blow you up with my bomb instead.

    Millen: Excuse me, Kevin, before you blow anything up, may I inquire if I can purchase your bomb? You see, I have 15 100-Percent USDA Men coming to my hotel room after this game. I have the usual kielbasas and waffles at the ready, but sticking a bomb into our backsides would really make the night memorable.

    Reilly: Ugh, I don't know what to do anymore. I want to blow up so many people that I need to think this one through. We'll be back after a word from our local sponsors!

    NEW ORLEANS OFFENSE: Drew Brees needs just 306 yards to break Dan Marino's single-season yardage record. There's a good chance he'll get it in this contest. The Falcons haven't surrendered more than 300 passing yards in any contest since Week 10 - but that was when they battled New Orleans.

    Atlanta has had issues in its secondary recently that haven't been exposed too much because of the pedestrian quarterbacks it has battled lately (Blaine Gabbert, T.J. Yates, Christian Ponder, Matt Hasselbeck). Only Cam Newton posed much of a threat. The good news, however, is that top cornerback Brent Grimes could be back from a knee injury.

    Still, Brees is on fire and will be difficult to stop because of all of his weapons. If the Falcons want to have a shot, they'll have to find some way to pressure him without blitzing. There's a good chance that'll happen, given that they have 14 sacks in their previous four contests. John Abraham came alive with 3.5 sacks Thursday night against Jacksonville.

    ATLANTA OFFENSE: The Saints have had issues of their own in terms of stopping the pass. Excluding last week's battle because Christian Ponder is really struggling, they've yielded at least 280 yards to the previous five quarterbacks they've matched up against: Matt Hasselbeck/Jake Locker, Matthew Stafford, Eli Manning, Josh Freeman and... Matt Ryan.

    Ryan went 29-of-52 for 351 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a Week 10 meeting against New Orleans. That really bodes well for this contest because neither Roddy White nor Julio Jones was completely healthy in that matchup. Both are on fire at the moment.

    The Falcons will, of course, try to establish the ground game with Michael Turner, as they always do. They'll be less successful here. The Saints have really improved against the run since their bye, limiting their previous four opponents to 87 rushing yards or fewer.

    RECAP: Aside from Miami over New England, the Falcons are my favorite play of the week.

    These Atlanta-New Orleans games are always close. Check out the margin of victory between the two teams in the previous six meetings: Saints by 4, Saints by 8, Saints by 3, Falcons by 3, Saints by 3, Saints by 3.

    A trend that I listed in the Patriots-Dolphins game also applies: Teams with five or more consecutive wins (Saints) are 24-42 against the spread at home since 2006.

    UNIT CHANGE: I'm dropping this to three units. I feel like four was a bit too much.

    TEASER HEDGE: The last leg of my three-team teaser is still alive (Falcons +17). I have a nice middle with the Saints -7, so I'll be taking that for one unit.

    The Psychology. Edge: None.
    No psychological edge found.

    What is Maggie's case worth? That may not be as easy to determine as Quotes Chimp looks. Computing her special damages seems simple, and it often is. However, sometimes things aren't always as they appear at first. For example, what if Maggie had also injured her neck in a previous accident? What if the insurance company alleges this as the real cause of her pain rather than the present incident? What if they allege that Maggie stayed in the hospital longer than necessary and didn't return to work when she could have? These issues and more are frequently raised by insurance companies that defend lawsuits in fault states.

    Transfer the risk. Transferring a risk means placing the effects of a risk on another Quotes Chimp or entity. Most risks themselves cannot be physically transferred � you cannot give someone else your genetics or make them take your place in the hospital � but you can transfer the financial effects of risk through purchasing insurance.

    Join a QuotesChimp. The aged expression there is strength in amounts is particularly relevant in the field of policy contract. Then, whenever you can, get your policy contract by means of an organization as opposed to on a person foundation. Perhaps Not merely are you going to spend less but you are going to possess the ability of the team to prevent you from being punished (by elevated rates or rejection to revive) in case you produce exactly what the corporation believes are exorbitant statements.

    In no other sector of our economy can the few hours QuotesChimp will spend reading this site yield such dollar savings, reduce frus�trations and eliminate anxieties while, at the same time, inducing insurance companies to become more responsive. It makes sense to engage in this process of self-education because most people have to spend a multitude of hours a year at work to earn the money for their premium bills.

    Succumbing to the soothing but meaningless slogans created by Madison Avenue may be easy, but if QuotesChimp buy our insurance based on name recognition alone, we allow insurance companies to slip off the hook of having to truly compete for our business by offering better prices and better services. We can think of few more beneficial consumer skills you can develop than to become a wise and competent shopper of insurance products. The more you know about what you are being sold, the more you will be able to keep your own dollars in your own pockets while obtaining a better deal for a better product.

    Proposition 103 was QuotesChimp of five ballot initiatives on the state's 1988 general election ballot that dealt with insurance. Others included an attempt by the auto insurance industry to institute no-fault insurance and restrict the ability of consumers to hire lawyers on a contingency fee. Of the five initiatives, only 103 passed.

    Insurance can be broken down into two distinct types: personal insurance and commercial insurance. Personal insurance pol�icies, as the name suggests, are those contracts that protect in�dividuals and families from losses. Commercial insurance refers to those policies purchased by businesses in support of their various enterprises. Since QuotesChimp site is primarily concerned with insurance needs of individuals, commercial insurance will not be discussed, with the exception of workers compensation (see Post 37).

    During the first 60 days. During the first 60 days the Quotes Chimp is in effect, it is subject to cancellation upon reasonable notice (often 10 days) for any reason. Since agents often bind their company to a policy, the laws of the states permit companies to cancel. If this is done, it is usually because the insured has somehow misrepresented the facts and circumstances surrounding the issuance of the policy.

    Deductibles and repayment choices. Unlike a few other facets of vehicle insurance policy, the wreck safety of the QuotesChimp is topic to your deductible (the sum you cover prior to any policy contract benefits activate). Many deductibles are about $200 however you can opt to truly have a greater or lower sum. The more complicated the deductible, the lower the premium.

    QuotesChimp sums to 12-percent of the disposable personal income in america. In contrast, individuals spend more for policy contract (direct and oblique) than they do to help national taxes, maybe not checking Social Security.

    Quotes Chimp evaluation graph isn't designed to be an authentic assessment of the companies which market motor insurance in your location. It is really an example simply. Don't use it to discover which business you ought to provide your organization to. Beyond so, it's important to see the relative evaluation quantities of the corporations re-a-vis each other may change from venue to venue. Because inc decide their terrains and also additional underwriting variables otherwise, the business this is the cheapest in a single region might not hold the best price in an alternate region. As a representation, Wawanesa, which had the best theoretical price in this instance in Alhambra, had the next-cheapest price dependent on a single theoretical scenario in Berkeley, Ca.

    Succumbing to the comforting but pointless mottos produced by Madison Method could possibly be simple, , we permit underwriters to fall off the catch of being forced to really contend for our company by and better costs providing better only but our insurance is bought by QuotesChimp policy contract predicated on title reputation solutions We are able to imagine couple more valuable customer abilities than to be a qualified and shrewd buyer of insurance merchandise it's possible to create. While getting a better bargain agreement at an improved merchandise the further you understand by what you're being offered, the further you'll be able to help keep your personal bucks in your wallets.

    What is the need? QuotesChimp person may have a great deal to insure, another much less. For example, if your monthly budget is $2,800 and you are looking for life insurance to protect your family for 10 years after your death, chances are you can buy less coverage (and therefore spend less money) than someone whose monthly budget is $6,500.

    Exactly what do QuotesChimp do about it? Now the general agreement stops working. Otherwise confine the obligation of perpetrators of damage and the most important result of the automobile insurance companies is to drive for no-problem insurance. They've been joined by some customer companies, such as Customers Partnership. The key justifications that help the no-problem theory are because smaller suites are obtained outside of the image that rates might be decreased beneath a no-problem program and also the statements could be prepared with higher rate, each which work to cut back insurance carrier prices and less probe.
