Double, double

This might sound like double talk ... double talk.

No, I'm not in an echo chamber ... I'm not in an echo chamber.

No, I'm not stuck in my empty storage fridge at the Dargan compound ... not stuck in my empty storage fridge at the Dargan compound.

This is definitely an experiment in football and fun ... experiment in football and fun.

I've been commissioned by my close friend Paul Tags to check it out ... by my close friend Paul Tags to check it out.

I'm trying to cover it all from every angle ... angle ... angle ... angle.

This could be fun ... fun ... fun. I can repeat without eating a pepperoni and pickled pig's feet pizza ... Tough to repeat, repeat, repeat from every angle, angle angle. And boy are we thankful ... thankful ... thankful.


This would be great to rock out with that commemorative Kate Smith-Nell Carter duet ... duet ... duet. Think of all the angles that have to be covered there ... there ... there.

But let's get down to business ... business ... business.

This is a study of the oft-criticized NFL Instant Replay plan ... oft-criticized ... oft-criticized .... plan ... plan ... plan.

This is the verbal set ... set ... set. Where we can hear if the ref's whistle was blown ... was blown ... was blown. Not just the call ... call ... call.

Watch out ... out ... out. Duck ... duck ... duck ... goose.

Here comes another red flag ... red flag ... red flag. From that feisty Brian Billick ... Billick ... Bill ... Ravens' coach ... that guy.

Another challenge ... challenge ... challenge ... complaint.

And upon further review, he's losing another timeout ... timeout ... timeout.

And with all that, not only did we waste all your time reading this, but it throws off the schedule to watch TVLand classic show repeats .... repeats ... repeats.

On with the predictions. Last week 10-7 (.588). Season 193-53 (.785).
