Donald Trump Is A Gambler, Here’s Why

Is Donald Trump tipping his hand about who he has a future on?

If there’s one thing we can agree on, serving McDonald’s at the reception of the National Champion Clemson Tigers is a bizarre move that really sends off a weird vibe. But what if it is a carefully calculated move to entice a current NFL coach into winning the Super Bowl.

Now Andy Reid has been atrocious in the playoffs for the past 6 or so years, but he flipped the script this year faster than a McDouble in the microwave. Was Donald Trump’s McDonald’s buffet a bat signal to Andy Reid that there was a goal at the end of the tunnel. Not a trophy, plaque, or parade, but an all-you-can-eat Big Mac spread that would bring any red-blooded American (or college kid) to their knees.

Were those sweet 5/2 preseason odds too much to pass up for the McDonald’s Don? I think so. If Trump’s campaign showed us anything it’s that he knows the pulse of middle America. Andy Reid is middle America personified. A gut that is the result of sitting in an office chair for 10 hours a day, a closet full of Tommy Bahama shirts for the yearly trip to Orlando, and a utility belt for all those car problems that he assures his wife he can fix.

Donny thought he was slick presenting the Dollar Menu spread to those college kids in order to set off the fast food alarm in Andy Reid’s head. But I’m on to him.

 

P.S.

Jackson Carman roasted POTUS like a Christmas ham.

We Don’t Know What A Catch Is, And Neither Do Officials.

The NFL officiating crew of the Chicago-Philadelphia Wild Card game just made the debate of what is a catch in the NFL even more muddied.

At the end of the first half, Anthony Miller was thrown a pass that was seemingly broken up and ruled incomplete on the field, it would have been a completion down to the 5-yard line. The ball laid on the turf and both teams returned to the line of scrimmage for the next play.

Upon further review, it was deemed both a catch by Anthony Miller and a fumble by Anthony Miller. The referees called the play dead so nobody recovered the loose ball. It was assumed that it was an incomplete pass. In the review, the referees said that since the ball was not recovered by anyone, that the play is negated, and the catch does not count.

This play just exemplifies what is wrong with NFL officiating. They blew a play dead and took away what happened on that play, even though there was no real reason to negate it. He caught the ball, so he should get the yards. The play cannot be negated because the referees messed up the call on the field.

From the infamous Dez Bryant catch against the Packers in 2014 to this play today, the rules have changed dramatically to the exact opposite. The pendulum has swung so far that now everything is a catch and nobody knows why.

A change needs to be made, we’ve gone from “surviving the ground” to one step and it’s a catch. There is an in-between there that needs to be decided on. Also, the call of a negated play was terrible and that should simply not be an option.

Anyway, go Bears -6.

The Run, Pass, Option. Wild Card Picks

The Run, Pass, Option. is your weekly NFL betting guide. Take these bets and everything your bookie has.

Run with these teams

Chicago -6

The red-hot Bears defense will be the only team to shut down Nick Foles. Even though he has been great, and is a Super Bowl MVP the Bears will be able to put the clamps on him. I like the Bears playmakers against the Eagles D. Pick the Bears -6

Dallas -1.5

This is the year that the Cowboys win a playoff game. They have added the pieces to beat good competition, and their defense is the key. The linebacking duo of Smith and Vander Esch will be able to stop the Seahawks running game, which they lean on heavily. The Seahawks O-Line is far more banged up than the Cowboys, and that will be the key to a Dallas W. Pick the Cowboys -1.5

 

Pass On These Favorites

Houston -1.5

Andrew Luck and the Colts have lit it up against the Texans this year, and T.Y. Hilton has repeatedly torched these division rivals. While Houston has been one of the best teams in football all year, the Colts have played just as well. Indy’s Offensive Line will be the key to victory and Darius Leonard leading the defense will be able to shut down the run. Pick the Colts +1.5

Baltimore -3

Nobody is giving the Chargers a chance to win this game a week after they lost to the Ravens. A team as good as the Chargers will be able to change their gameplan enough to win this game. The loss came from a couple of fluke interceptions and the Baltimore offense breaking big runs. If those interceptions don’t happen, the Ravens don’t win. Pick the Chargers +3

 

The Last Option

Sea/Dal Under 43.5

Two running teams and two good defenses? This is the recipe for a low scoring game that will be decided on a fluke play or long field goal. I like the Cowboys winning 17-14 in a very boring game. Take the Under 43.5
