The Bears Are Playing Jacksonville....

....which can only mean that we have to take a moment to remember this:

Prognostication Bukakke, NFL Week 5

NCAA
Mrs. Code Red: 26-14
Iggins!: 26-14
Code Red: 24-16

NFL:
Code Red: 38-25
Mrs. Code Red: 38-25
Iggins!: 33-30

Overall:
Mrs. Code Red: 64-39
Code Red: 62-41
Iggins!: 59-44


Cardinals @ Rams
Code Red: Once again, the Rams proved that in this division of good defenses and often horrible offenses, anything can happen. I'll take the Cardinals, but wouldn't be surprised if they lost.

Iggins!: Really want to take the Rams, but I told myself I wouldn’t pick against Arizona until they lost. Cardinals win?

Mrs. Code Red: Cardinals, I guess.


Dolphins @ Bengals
Iggins!: Tannehill threw for 400 yards last game against a good Cardinal secondary. That kind of madness has to even itself out immediately. Bengals win.

Code Red: I prefer to believe the Cardinals secondary is overrated, rather than Tannehill has any talent. Bengals win.


Mrs. Code Red: Bengals

Browns @ Giants
Code Red: My God, what an awful schedule. Giants win.

Iggins!: Not the world’s best NFL week. Giants win.

Code Red: I was more referring to Cleveland’s brutal slate. There is nowhere in there for them to catch a breath between all the constant rapings.

Mrs. Code Red: Giants.

Packers @ Colts
Iggins!: The Packers have looked so mediocre on both sides of the ball this year. They’ll beat the Colts here, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Bears run away with the division. Packers win.

Code Red: Oh good, you’re back to being super overly cocky. Have you looked at the Packers schedule? There’s a lot of easy wins on there. It’ll come down to the wire. Bears still have to Beat them first. Packers win.

Mrs. Code Red: I'd love to pick the Colts, but c'mon. Packers win.

Eagles @ Steelers
Code Red: Hmm. Steelers defense has looked less than great lately. Still don't like the Eagles, though. Hard to see the Steelers falling to 1-3 at home. Steelers win.

Iggins!: Yeah, I just can’t pick the Eagles. Even when they’re mistake-free they look mediocre. Steelers win (which probably means the Eagles go to 4-1 and my head explodes).

Mrs. Code Red: Eagles win.

Falcons @ Redskins
Iggins!: RG3 is great, but without a defense to stop the Matty Ice train the Redskins have no shot. Falcons win.

Code Red: It’s funny, I used to get mad at Cam Newton-RGIII comparisons because they’re pretty different QBs, but, in a way, their situations are identical. Falcons win, RGIII plays valiantly in defeat.

Mrs. Code Red: Falcons.

Ravens @ Chiefs
Code Red: Safe to say the Chiefs are just bad. Ravens win.

Iggins!: So bad. Ravens win.

Mrs. Code Red: Ravens.

Bears @ Jaguars
Code Red: MURDER. KILL. DESTROY. Bears win, 30-10.

Iggins!: Bears take care of business. Bears win, 27-6

Mrs. Code Red: Bears win, 30-10. Garbage time TD.

Seahawks @ Panthers
Iggins!: The Panthers put on a nice show against Atlanta, and Seattle looked bad against St. Louis. This game’ll end up a shootout, I have Cam coming out on top. Panthers win.

Code Red: I’m sorry, but what about the Seahawks has given you any indication that they can put up more than 17 points against West Texas A&M. Panthers win, no shootout.

Mrs. Code Red: Panthers.
Titans @ Vikings
Code Red: If Jake Locker was healthy I might consider the Titans, but not with Hasselbeck. Vikings win.

Iggins!: The Vikings keep grindin’ like Clipse. Vikings go to 4-1, chaos reigns.

Mrs. Code Red: Damn. I don't want to pick the Vikings, but Vikings win.


Bills @ 49ers
Iggins!: The Bills got that “Hey, we’re kind of good!” thing out of their systems early this year. 49ers win.

Code Red: I don’t see how a team recovers from….that. Chan Gailey should be fired yesterday. 49ers win.

Mrs. Code Red: 49ers, after that horrendous showing.

Broncos @ Patriots
Code Red: Should be an entertaining shootout, but you have to take the Patriots at home.

Iggins!: This’ll be a great game. The Broncos have really had a difficult schedule to start the season. I’ll take the Patriots to win, but I’m pulling for Denver.

Mrs. Code Red: Patriots.


Chargers @ Saints
Iggins!: Night game, Superdome, 0-4 Saints? I’ll take the Saints to get their first win.

Code Red: As will I. Saints win.

Mrs. Code Red: Chargers win.

Texans @ Jets
Code Red: Ha ha. Ha ha. No. Texans win.

Iggins!: This is the Monday Nighter? Ouch. Texans win.

Mrs. Code Red: Texans.

Prognostication Bukakke, NCAA Week 6

#13 USC @ Utah
Iggins!: Utah has been pretty disappointing considering they were supposed to at least contend for their division title. At the beginning of the year I had Utah here, but despite Barkley’s struggles, I have to take USC to win now.

Code Red: Seems like a pretty good game for Barkley to right the ship. USC wins. 
 
Mrs. Code Red: USC wins.

#24 Northwestern @ Penn State
Code Red: Oh god, let it be NW. Fucking Illinois. I called that, remember? Gah. NW wins.

Iggins!: I’m having a hard time picking this one. Penn State has looked passable the last few games, and Northwestern just isn’t as good as 5-0 would indicate. This game frightens me too much, so I’m taking Northwestern to win.

Mrs. Code Red: Northwestern.

Arizona @ #18 Stanford
Iggins!: Really wanted to take Sark last week. Just as we said, Stanford is never as good as their wins over USC indicate, but they’re much better than Richrod. Can’t believe voters actually ranked Arizona at one point. Stanford wins.

Code Red: No defense in Arizona, and they don't seem to travel well. Stanford wins.

Mrs. Code Red: Picking against Stanford two weeks in a row would probably be folly. Stanford wins.

#4 LSU @ #10 Florida
Code Red: I could very well see Florida winning this game. They've gotten better every game, and LSU has yet to find its offensive stride. But, well, Hat. LSU wins.

Iggins!: Agreed, Hat. LSU wins.

Mrs. Code Red: Not sure. Better roll with the higher ranked team? LSU wins.

#17 Oklahoma @ Texas Tech
Iggins!: Oklahoma: not that great. But hell if I’m taking Tommy Tuberville. Oklahoma wins.

Code Red: Fuck Tech. Oklahoma wins.

Mrs. Code Red: Oklahoma.

#5 Georgia @ #6 South Carolina
Code Red: Can only take the home team here, because these teams are very evenly matched. You can bet I'll be watching this one. South Carolina wins.

Iggins!: South Carolina is much worse than Georgia. Clowney may be the best player on the field, but the best team is definitely Georgia. Georgia wins.

Mrs. Code Red: South Carolina wins.

Miami (FL) @ #9 Notre Dame
Iggins!: UGH. Number 9?! That hurts me deep in my soul. It also hurts me that I have to take Notre Dame to win.

Code Red: We have to accept that we live in a world where Notre Dame is good again. Hopefully it won't last long? ND wins.

Mrs. Code Red: Three in a row! Gotta be bold. Miami wins.

#8 West Virginia @ #11 Texas
Code Red: You know I have to roll with Holgo here. WVU wins. God, that game last week was beautiful. 

Iggins!: Texas is grossly overrated at #11. Hopefully WVU can send them spiraling backwards into cold, hard reality. WVU wins.

Mrs. Code Red: West Virgnia.

#21 Nebraska @ #12 Ohio State
Iggins!: Ranked B1G teams. What a joke. Ohio State is exactly as mediocre as I thought they would be; the only problem is that every other member of the B1G is much worse than I thought. Ohio State’s mediocrity is better than everyone elses sub-mediocrity! OSU could go 12-0, and everyone will still thank the Gods they aren’t bowl-eligible, because 12-0 in the B1G this year is about as good as 12-0 in the Big East. Ohio State wins.

Code Red: I think Nebraska is the better team. That UCLA loss was unfortunate. Nebraska wins.
 
Mrs. Code Red: Ohio State. 
 
#23 Washington @ #2 Oregon
Code Red: Well, c'mon. Oregon wins. 
 
Iggins!: Overrating Washington now because they beat the overrated Stanford team. IT’S AN ENDLESS CYCLE OF OVERRATING. Oregon wins.

Mrs. Code Red: Oregon.
