    I was 2-3-2 today (2 pushes). The good news is that I bet about 5 times more money on the Cowboys and ended up getting all my money from college and pro football plus some.

    I agree nothing like doubling up on the Sunday/Monday night game.

    Who's everybody like tonight? I like Tenn to stay close if not win, but I seen what N.O. can do at home on MNF last year( first game I thought might have been fixed since Neil Odonnell in Superbowl).

    I am going to try and recoup some losses tonight by going wth NO.

    Although if the last two weeks are any indicator, if I were you bet the opposite of me.

    I almost NEVER do such a thing, but the way the ball has been rolling the past two weekends, I got ticked off and pretty much said heck with it. Frustration + gambling = bad combination! I wouldn't recommend that "recoup" strategy to anyone. Very dangerous and very stupid.

    I think I'm going to try NO tonight, as well. They are in a must win situation and their offense is eventually going to have to do a little something. Tonight at home seems like a good time to start.

    I went with NO on a small bet, but wow are they pathetic or what? On a good note, I have Reggie Bush on my fantasy team and he might finally get enough touches to produce a little now with McAllister's injury. NO is a horrible team though, especially on the defensive side.

    If Sean Payton has enough sense to do that...I was really dissappointed to see Aaron Stecker come in and get several carries when Deuce left the game. Seriously, is Payton that stupid?

    They wonder what's wrong with the offense...here's a hint...give the ball to your best player. That could help.

    Yeah, here's a pretty good clue to coaching moron - if you put Reggie Bush in to field a punt and you get a standing ovation before the kick even takes place, its probably a pretty good bet that you need him on the field. I know he's small and I know he takes some shots, but really why pay a player millions of dollars and then act like you're afraid he's going to get hurt? If it were me, I'd hand the ball off to Bush at least 20 times a game, let him field punts, let him field kickoffs, and line him up at receiver on every other play. I would also direct snap it to him, run him on reverses, give him end arounds, misdirections, whatever I could do to get him the ball.

    I agree..... you could have sold Lemonade out of your trunk this past weekend at a soccer of football field and made more money than that.

    Its the nature of the beast. Its why IMO you only bet 3 games max per week and be happy if you go 2-1.
