NFL Picks Week 2

September 18, 2009

Week 2 Final: 9-7

Week 1 Final: 12-4

Hey Football Fiends-

Here are my picks for NFL Week 2.  With McNabb and Urlacher and Polamalu out, to name a few–picking was tricky. Especially in the NO-Philly game. And as much as it pains me to pick against my Bears – there is no way Cutler & company can keep up with even a Polamalu-less Steelers D.

Oakland over KC

Tennessee over Houston

New England over Jets

Green Bay over Cincinnati

Minnesota over Detroit

New Orleans over Philly

Atlanta over Carolina

Redskins over Rams

Jax over Arizona

Seattle over SF

Buffalo over Tampa Bay

Denver over Cleveland

San Diego over Baltimore

Pittsburgh over Chicago

Giants over Dallas

Colts over Miami

Mid-day NFL musings

September 13, 2009
  • Donovan McNabb, God love him, is a fragile flower. He wnet down with a broken rib suffered in the Eagles’ 38-10 win over Carolina. Let the Kevin Kolb era in Philly begin. Vick cannot play until September 27.
  • Arizona, REALLY? Defending NFC champs go down to SAN FRANCISCO?
  • Best tweet I saw today from @jemelehill: Memo to Matt Leinart: Plz put down the Kurt Warner voodoo doll so I can get points out of Larry Fitzgerald.
  • Denver did not look as sucktastic as I expected. Although, the Bengals are not exactly an elite team.
  • I still miss John Madden.
  • Giants D looked TOUGH
  • Still waiting for evidence that Chicago has an offense.
  • Favre looked…well if not exactly good, certainly not bad… in the Vikes victory. That said, the win is due in large part to the Purple Jesus.
  • Mark Sanchez looked great in the Jets victory over Houston. The rookie out of USC threw for 272 yards, two TDs and one INT.
  • Another good tweet courtesy of @SignalToNoise: you replaced the Sex Cannon and the Neckbeard with the Sulk Cannon, Chicago. #foreverandeveramen
  • I truly didn’t think it was possible that someone could make the Sex Cannon look good, but somehow, Jay Cutler is managing to do just that.

That’s all for now!

NFL Conference Championships Picks: I do not want an all PA Super Bowl.

January 17, 2009

Seriously football fiends. If it is an All Pennsylvania Super Bowl, I just might have to boycott. And it would pain me to miss the last football game of the season. The off season is just too damn long, you know?

I am struggling with the Cards-Eagles game. I’m having a hard time separating what I want from what I think the outcome will be. Plus, the Iggles, you just can’t trust them. McNabb has something to prove. But so does Kurt Warner.

So I’m going with:

Cardinals over Eagles

Steelers over Ravens

NFL Picks – Divisional Playoff Round

January 9, 2009

Hey There Football Fiends!

This is a tough weekend. The teams I want to win (Arizona, San Diego), I don’t think are necessarily the best picks to win. And you know me, I don’t bet where my heart is involved.

  • Ravens over Titans
  • Carolina over Arizona Am ELATED that I got this one wrong!
  • Eagles over New York Giants      (now I’m dammed if I do and dammed if I don’t on the Eagles, but I really do think they are this year’s Giants–peaking at the right time and all that.)
  • Steelers over San Diego  (ACK. I hate even typing that. But San Diego does not do well in cold weather. It is a fact.)

Hey Football Fiends!!

Did ya catch that Sugar Bowl?! WAY TO GO UTAH!!!!!

Anyway, it is ungodly early here on the West Coast and I woke up w a start realizing I had not put my picks up yet!!!

  • Atlanta v Arizona   – I am so torn on this one. Matt Ryan is on fire.  But I am a Cards fan. So…. ARIZONA over ATL
  • San Diego v Indy  – Good Lord. San Diego is the Jekyll and Hyde team of the year. That said the game is in San Diego and the Bolts have got the Colts # at Qualcom.  SAN DIEGO over INDY
  • Miami over Baltimore
  • Vikings over Eagles — Gotta throw some love to Loyal fan of the Gridiron Goddess TJack
