Strongly advise everyone to pick Tampa. The Falcons are tanking for that #1 draft pick.

Also who knows whether the trend of teams losing after playing Seattle comes back especially after Tampa didn't follow suit.

 Just what the Falcons needed-a patsie!  Both teams are awful, but Mike Glennon is NOT going to outduel Matty Ice! HC Greg Schiano is sent packing at the end of this season.

ATLANTA  - 1   (Prime Play!)

If you must - tease this SH**fest - Atlanta is a joke, and Tampa just flat out stinks. I'm kind of leaning Atlanta in the tease, just because I don't think Tampa would be able to hold them to just 2 rushing yards like they did the Diolphins...... But good luck, whatever you choose.....

ima HUGE steven jackson fan and hes just too dried up, cant cut and not as illusive cuz of age and injuries. i believe tampa has a good rush defense and matt ryan has noone to throw too. whos he got? tony gonzalez? defense sucks matt ryans good. i would say under and tampa for the win.

TEASE OF THE WEEK. TAMPA +8 and browns +13 in 7 pt tease.

Atlanta won last meeting 4 weeks ago.  This time should be no different.  Same group of guys, same team.

Atlanta can't lose forever. And while I think Tampa COULD win 2 in a row I just don't see it happening here. As TQY said, Dolphins managed only 2 yards of rushing offense and still could of won that game. I don't see Atlanta doing nearly that badly. Miami looked terrible for most of that game. I also think Atlanta will get the passing game going here.

Master NBA, let me had some bets on Atlanta and were chasing your losses so now you're warning others not to? I did the same thing, don't feel too badly. But there comes a time when you just have to go with the better team. And as bad as atlanta is, I agree with Vue here...No way anyone should take Glennon over Matty Ice. 

This one honestly seems like a no brainer, no matter how bad Atlanta has been. They actually hung tough with Carolina until the end in that 4th Quarter when Matt threw that interception. So, Atlanta is due for a win here I think. Also who says Tampa isn't going for the #1 draft pick? They did win the last game but that's only 1 game. They were the last winless team in the league before that. So now all they have to do is drop one here to Atlanta. 

I really hope I'm right here. I am trusting Atlanta for ONE MORE week. If they can't beat Tampa, then it's obvious that "AtlantaFalcons" is correct and Atlanta is going for that draft pick.

Any final score predictions guys?

Also just a side note- 

Atlanta has failed to cover the Las Vegas "Big" Teaser card 3 weeks in a row now. Does anyone know how often it is that a team fails to cover 4 straight weeks in a row? The plays on these cards have an 80% hit rate. So to miss on an 80% hit rate four straight weeks in a row seems to be pretty uncommon to me. It's not like we are chasing losses on teasers, because we do multiple teams. 

I think you'd be safer teasing Atlanta than you would Tampa. But both of them probably cover here considering the circumstances...

I’ve always considered that Tampa Bay defense as a top five unit in the league…  Now they have got off the proverbial schneid, I see them riding the momentum against a banged up Atlanta squad…  I locked this game in on Friday as IMHO this is the best NFL play on the board today…


With that said, put me down for Tampa Bay in a Pick’em at the house for a Dime please.  Thanks!

 Tale O' the Tape
5 Foot 9 Vue's 46 Waistline vs 6 Feet 3  EZ 's 36 Waistline

Huh. . .
Sorry Wrong thread...

Funny things happen when you crack whip , Some horses go faster,
Some  girl Blo better n' hopefully Vue will have a winning weekend.

Eeeyahh I say Giddyap Boy !!! Tsk Tsk' ' 

Based on this feeble angle , I will trail the Vue then again ...
Quality not Quantity
Falcs are facing team they last beat .However , Prime Time,Kick behind Falcs of last year struggled to beat LOWLY Bucs @ Sombrero last year 
think it was 24 - 23.
Tony G questionable
This year's Falcs have 0 run + O Defense.
Bucs M. Glennon on rise ,gettin' Job done WILL NOT do worst than 
256 yrds , 2 TD's  as Last time out vs Falcs.
HOWEVER, RB James Out will put serious dent in Bucs Offense.

Picked Bucs last week vs Fins n' mentioned contrary to Vue's brilliant Fin insight that Bucs have played overall more competitive ball than Fins n' certainly more competitive than Falcs considering all the distractions Bucs n' for that matter Falcs have faced.
Falcs have never been a great road team but IMO this game has OT , last tic' field goal written all over.
Food for thought Amigos

I have to disagree with the board on who to play in this game. When you are trying to compare Atlanta's last season stats/record/team vs. its current team ** is like comparing Jordan in the 90's to him returning after retirement... (not even comparable)!! Atlanta is not the same team as last season not even a shadow of the same team. Coupled with the fact that Atlanta is one of the worst road teams in the NFL; they are disoriented on both sides of the ball and are littered with injuries with a team moral that is in the dumps!! Atlanta has said they are looking to increase the run game to open their pass attack, well it isn't gonna happen this week I can promise you that. Tampa Bay's record has little indication of the teams actual ability to play good football. Tampa has one of the NFL's best defenses in my opinion and are severely underrated. Their run defense is top notch and have held opposing teams QB's to under 300 yards a game. Today's matchup features two divisional teams battling it out for the last place spot in their division. TB finally has the fire back in the locker room coming off a huge win last week, I think they add another number into the win column with this game against the lowly Atlanta Falcons. Glennon and company will feature a split back run committee this week including several offensive weapons that are going to destroy the decimated Falcon's defense. Atlanta has been backed numerous times this season in key matchups in which they should have won and have yet to cover or win any of those said games and this is another big let down spot for them as well. In this game I'm looking for a fired up TB crew and getting another big "W" @ home. Play for the small as I am breaking one of my "GOLDEN RULES" of betting by placing a wager involving (2) terrible teams! Be careful whatever your play and always remember not everything that glitters is gold! BOL and GL to everyone.. let's beat these books one day at a time.. 

(I have a couple other write ups on the GB, Bears, Washington, and Pats games!)

I’m sure Ozzie Newsome and John Harbaugh are kicking themselves in the axx for NOT signing Bobby Rainey…  With that said, cash your tickets at the windows Ladies and Gentlemen because this puppy is a wrap!  EXCELLENT piece of work Tampa Bay and Over backers!
