I apologize for not posting the system last week, as I am busy preparing for the Giants Fans vs Jets Fans Flag Football Scrimmage for Men’s Health Awareness, which is this Sunday! The system went even Steven in Week 7, going 5-5 on the top 10 sells and 5-5 on the top 10 buys. However, in Week 8, the system rocked, going 9-1 each way on top buys and top sells The system is so far 29-21 on top 10 sells and 33-17 on top 10 buys. We are halfway through and getting some good trending data, for instance the Jets who follow up a win with a loss. They are a good example of a volatile team that is invest on your own risk. Here is the board for this week with sortable table:
|Team||Share Price||Change||Week 9 Outlook|
|Green Bay Packers||96.06||+04.62||+36.50|
|Kansas City Chiefs||104.22||-01.06||+60.71|
|New England Patriots||82.92||-03.57||+43.68|
|New Orleans Saints||101.03||+03.33||+58.28|
|New York Giants||32.81||+16.60||Bye|
|New York Jets||42.75||-07.77||-53.28|
|San Diego Chargers||75.16||+01.54||+40.79|
|San Francisco 49ers||97.98||+03.45||Bye|
|St. Louis Rams||55.29||+00.65||-10.06|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||31.57||-03.32||-74.76|
Philadelphia Eagles -10.33 Carolina Panthers +11.68
The Philadelphia Eagles has mightily flopped after looking so promising early on with all the weapons they have and offensive genius Chip Kelly at the helm. Now, with Michael Vick not able to stay on the field, they turn to Nick Foles, whom Vick beat out for the starting job in preseason. I think that the offense had excelled early on because of the respect that Vick commands with his legs, but Foles gets no such respect. The Panthers may have impressed some with their little winning streak, but they have not impressed me. The combined record of the teams they have beaten is 6-24. Their next five opponents feature only one losing team with a combined record of 24-14. While they have been impressive in their wins, these are wins they are supposed to get. I think that right now is the highest point the Panthers will see all season, and you should sell high.
Chicago Bears -0.47
Washington Redskins -1.96
With the Redskins, you never know. Last season, they turned it on late and stole the division away. I think that in their lousy division, they can make some noise, but they are not playing good football right now and the hole they have dug themselves may be too deep to get out from. The Bears started off strong, but now with Jay Cutler going down and dates with the Packers and Lions coming up, I think you can write this season off for the Bears as a rookie coach’s growing pains. The defense looked promising as well, but they are perhaps the most overrated unit in football, giving up an average of 31 points over the last 4. They do have some weaker opponents after the Lions, and may, I said may, make a run once Cutler returns, but don’t bet on it, as this is a team that is known for not finishing strong.
Oakland Raiders +4.05 Detroit Lions
The Lions continue to impress me, so I will keep them in the buy spot for now, as their success will be likely overshadowed by the Packers’ strong play and the amazing turnaround by Kansas City. If you saw the game last Sunday, you know that Megatron, Calvin Johnson is a beast. He may go down in NFL history as the greatest receiver of all time when it is all said and done. The Lions have the Bucs, Steelers, Vikings, Eagles and Giants left on their schedule, so don’t be surprised if they end up a wild card team. I really like the Oakland Raiders, although I think they have no shot of getting into the postseason, just because their division is very, very tough. But things are looking up for this team on the arm and legs of Terrelle Pryor, who has turned some heads lately and their defense who is stepping up.
