    Re: Week Six NFL Picks, and "Game of the Week"

    Couldn't help but enjoy the Ravens gacking one up against the mighty Bungles last week, after all the large talk about how they got jobbed by the officials against the Pats. That said, however, I think the Ravens are the kind of team that might give the Vikes trouble -- and let's face it, Minnesota has yet to play a quality team. That is not to say, necessarily, that Baltimore is a quality team. They had me fooled a few weeks ago. But Favre has been susceptible to pressure so far this season, and I believe the Ravens can bring the kind of pressure that may finally bring out the old Brett Favre that we all know and love so much . . .  the one who has thrown more interceptions than anyone else in the history of ever. If Flacco can stay out of Jared Allen's sights -- easier said than done -- I think he may be able to shred the Vikes' secondary, and I do think the Ravens smashmouth style (such as it is) will be something this version of the Viklings has yet to see.

    Mostly because I would like to see all these bandwagon Viklings fans who have suddenly come out of the woodwork taken down a peg, and because I am tired beyond endurance of Favre -- it's time for me to believe that the Ravens are going to jack Minnesota up.

    Jake Delhomme has thrown so many interceptions, Favre is suing for copyright infringement.

    I was getting nervous looking for this. 

    I read that article and I was a little spoiled with that season but in no way did I expect them to just pick it up and continue that level of play. Even if they somehow kept all the players from that year TB would still need time to recover and get his timing down.
    I'm glad they're in first place right now because they haven't come close to putting together a balanced, well executed 60-min game yet and it's only a matter of time until they do. I'm hoping it comes before the bye week.

    Steelers home will destroy the Browns, they'll cover that by halftime
    Packers with the weather
    Hawks with Hasselback and the crowd at that insane asylum.

    All the rest look good.

    I see real tough weeks for fans of Baltimore, Arizona, and Chicago because they actually think they have playoff teams and they find out this week they don't.

    I am waiting patiently for somebody to invent one of those "smiley" things to indicate "chuckling quietly to myself."

    Tex, I think the 9.5 pts might be too much for the Pats to cover.  So far the Pats have played close games down to the wire.  Even the Atlanta game was close for 3 Qtrs.  The Problems I see in this game is that Tenn should have no problem controlling the time of possession, the Patriots running won't be a factor minus Fred Taylor, and Brady needs to breakout this Sunday against a weak secondary.  Fisher is coaching right now with nothing to lose, so don't be surprised to see Young in the Wildcat in the Redzone. 

    I like the Pats chances if they get the early lead and take away the run from Tenn.  If Tenn gets the early lead, then the Pats are going to have to play perfect football and score on nearly every offensive possession.  Can they do it with Aiken?  We'll see.  I think this game will be won with some good old fashioned Brady Magic, but by less than 9.5

    1.) NY Giants (+3) @ New Orleans Saints: Drew Brees has tendency to choke in big games, that's what caused the Chargers to trade him. i hate the Jints as much as you, but - PICK: Giants;

    2.) Kansas City Chefs (+6) @ Washington Redskins: I'm hoping the Chefs get a W before next week, WAS is going to supply one. PICK: Chefs;

    3.) Houston Texans (+5) @ Cincinnati Bengals: I said it last week, and I'll say it again, the Texans have no pass defense. The Cards proved it last week and Cincy will prove it again this week   PICK: Bengals;

    4.) Cleveland Browns (+14) @ Pittsburgh Steelers: This one has shutout written all over it. PITT @ home against a team that scored only 6 last week? PIT 24-0 : PICK: Squeelers;

    5.) Baltimore Ravens (+3) @ Minnesota Vikings: Hunch play. I like the Ravens to bounce back this week & Favre to serve up a couple int's PICK: Ravens;

    6.) St. Louis Rams (+9.5) @ Jacksonville Jaguars: Yawner, STL can't score ( the worst OLINE in football)  and JAX is @ home  PICK: Jaguars;

    7.) Carolina Panthers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+3): 3 points is not enough for me to take an 0-5 Buc squad.  PICK: Panthers;

    8.) Detroit Lions (+13.5) @ Green Bay Packers: I think Detroit will cover.....................barely  PICK: Lions;

    9.) Philadelphia Eagles @ Oakland Raiders (+14):  While TEX persists to call him 'uncle Al', I'll call him the 'master of halloween rejects'. J.Russell is doing a fine job. You only can appreciate it as much as me if you play them twice a year. I hope those prix lose 100 straight to SD. Do you want to know how I really feel?  PICK: Eagles;

    10.) Arizona Cardinals (+3)  @ Seattle Seahawks: FB Owen Schmidt has a head like a rock. How do you win 41-0 one week and not cover by 3 against AZ @ home the next week? You do and will PICK: Seahawks;

    11.) Buffalo Bills (+9.5) @ NY Jets: Frankly, I don't think the Jets are that good: PICK: Bills - cover in a loss;

    12.) Tennessee Titans (+9.5) @ New England Patriots:  Pats get it together on the offensive side of the ball this week with the long ball, Fisher gets fired after this year. PICK: Patriots;

    13.) Chicago Bears (+3) @ Atlanta Falcons: 'Jay Cutler is vastly overrated'. Amen brother, preachin' to the choir. After scoring 45 on Singletary's defensive minded 9ers, the dirty birds will put 30 on da Bears : PICK: Falcons;

    14.) Denver Broncos (+3.5) @ San Diego Chargers: Norv is not the greatest headcoach of alltime, I get that part. But, giving Norv 2 weeks to 'offensively coordinate' a gameplan for the Broncos 'generic' approach will the undoing for Josh's OVERACHIEVERS, as Rivers tells the team to jump on his back, refusing to tolerate a loss in this one. Last 3 games at SD between these 2- SD 52-21, SD 23-3, & SD 48-20, thats by 31,20, & 28 respectively. Will SD win by 20 or more? no, but 6 points is what I'm thinkin' PICK: Chargers.     

    BEST BETS: CINCY, Seattle, Pittsburgh; and yes, my Chargers.

    This is a fantasy question (you've been warned) if you have Matt Ryan and Brees who do you start ?    No really I mean it....

    Both could have a tough week but I think the Giants D has a better chance of getting pressure than the Bears.

    I'd take Ryan

    I love your posts, but I hate that you pick with the spread. The spread is for gamblers and people addicted to gambling. Pick straight up it makes for a more true to the sport post not some gambling related garbage IMHO.

    the saints will beat the giants hands down, giants havent played anybody the only decent team they beat was the cowboys and they destroyed the giants defensive line that day, embarrassed them. The giants are no where near as good as their record indicates, the saints are the better team. Saints wing, and win fairly easy.

    31-17

    My upset pick this week is the texans over the bengals.

    lol i dont hate the giants? one year wonders happen all the time (as oppose to dynasties, they are truly special), no reason to hate them,  i just know what im talking about and i am passionate about it. The saints will beat the Giants because the saints are the better team, period.

    I think my comments about Baltimore being overrated might have some credibility now.  Its not that they are bad, by any stretch, in fact they are very good and certainly playoff material, but best in the league as some pundits were suggesting, no. 

    Their O is going to be good and their d is still good, but those great players are getting older and while still effective, not special.  Look at their games this year.  They beat up on bad teams (which they should) but struggled to wins or lost to good ones.  

    Exactly the reason why we cannot project Indy any higher than 4th at this time and that is on record alone.

    I don't save fluke SB wins. Do you have copies of the Patriots three legitimate SB wins?

    This is the most commonly used "analysis" for people who know nothing about football. This isn't the pansy *ss BCS, its the NFL.
