No, I am not in danger or being held hostage. The bookies are giving it away in tonite’s Monday night football game. The Broncos -2 take on the Titans. Invesco field does not hold the same home field value as Mile High stadium; in fact the Broncos have done really poorly at home this year vs. the spread (1-4 ATS at home). As poorly as Denver has played, a win tonite and the Broncos will be in first place of the AFC West.

But, I love Jay Cutler (and Tony Romo too). He is a young, gun-slinging, Brett Favre. He is getting more comfortable with Brandon Marshall and Stokely and Selvin Young will pick up the slack at running back left by his “dopey” friend Travis Henry.

Most importantly watch the health of Albert Haynesworth, the best run stopper on Tennessee’s defense. He was out with a hamstring injury last week and is a game time decision today. Without Haynesworth, the Titans gave up a season high 166 yards on the ground last week in a lopsided loss to the Jaguars. He probably plays, but won’t be effective.

Easy bet:
BRONCOS -2 vs. Titans

CRAPhonso update:

What is this? Well, with all the injuries at WR to the Indianapolis colts, they have had to go to the well for some players. One playing they are now turning to is Craphonso Thorpe. What a name! I feel compelled to give his statistics each week. If Money has another baby, boy or girl, Craphonso will be the name.

Thorpe had one reception for six yards in Thursday's win over Kansas City. He also returned three kickoffs for an average of 19 yards.

Thorpe could start at wide receiver on Thanksgiving against Atlanta with Aaron Moorehead leaving Sunday's game with back spasms. He lost the punt-return job with the return of T.J. Rushing, but it looks like he'll continue to return kickoffs.
