OK, since my blog has been so inactive because Iím really busy this semester, Iím now posting my weekly picks there, for public ridicule.
Falcons(5.5) @ San Ant, err, the Saints
It sure looked to me like the Saints gave up last week, and have decided they have an excuse for any losses they take. Can’t be good. Assuming Vick plays (which I thought last week, too), Falcons cover.
Panthers(1) @ Detroit
How’s it only 1? Seriously, just because the Lions ran it up a little on Baltimore, they really shouldn’t be confused for a good team.
Bengals(3) @ Tennessee
Still no Houshmandzadeh, but watching the Titans last week, I have to say, they’re not very good. Bengals bounce back.
Browns @ Baltimore(6)
Ugh. Are the Ravens actually six points better than anyone? I’m thinking no.
Jaguars @ Pittsburgh(3)
Hmm. The last I saw, Tommy Maddox is starting at QB. Jags.
Dolphins @ Tampa(3.5)
The return of Ricky Williams, and of Cadillac, right? I think with Cadillac, they can cover this.
Vikings @ Chicago(3)
Seriously, how does Mike Tice still have a job? I really want to know. I mean, this would be like me keeping my job after not showing up for my own classes for a whole semester. Bears.
Giants @ Dallas(3)
Hunh? I get points here? Yay. Go G-Men!
Redskins @ Kansas City(5.5)
Kansas City needs this win really, really badly. But the Redskins seem to keep every game close, and I’m hoping they can bottle up the KC offense enough to keep it close.
Patriots @ Denver(3)
I get burned every time I pick against the Pats, so I’m stopping
Jest @ Buffalo(3)
Despite Vinny’s fine performance last week, the Bills looked rejuvenated with the change in QB. I’ll take the Bills.
Chargers(2) @ Oakland
San Diego will bounce back after last week and will take it to the inferior Raiders.
Texans @ Seattle(9)
Texans on the road? Ugly. A national audience gets to see the worst pass-blocking line in the NFL.
Rams @ Indy(13.5)
Again, I see no reason to believe that the Colts won’t run it up at least that much on a horribly inferior team.
