Re: Week Two NFL Picks and Game of the Week

Prepare for some upsets, boys. This week has a few.
Pats Vs. Jets in NY, NJ.
The Jets bring their mighty blitz to face a NE team that struggled on all three sides of the ball against the Bills in Foxborough. Brady and the offense didn't look like the NE offense until the final two drives. I think that was the awakening of the Patriots. The defense even came alive after those two drives. They got as many sacks on the last drive as they had all game.(2)
The Jets offense isn't half as good as the Bills. The Safeties will be pulled up to the line of scrimmage to defend against the run due to the lack of a solid #1 WR on the Jets roster.
I might be a bias fan, but I have to go with: New England as the winners. 31-17.
Radiers Vs. Chiefs:
Simple, Richard Seymour rejuvenated the Black hole. The Chiefs don't intimidate anyone on any side of the ball.
Winner: The Black hole. 24-10
Texans Vs. Titans:
The Titans looked really weak against the Jets, but I think it was more a case of underestimaton than a lack of talent. The Titans have a really high powered offense. The Titans' D was picked apart by Ben Worthlisberger, Schaubs has better weapons and a better offense the the Steelers.
Winner: My AFC Central pick, Houston. 21-13
Bengals Vs. Packers:
The Bengals' D is back. The only sad thing is that the offense isn't what it once was. I think Carson Palmer misses T.J. more than he is letting on. Chad and Chris Henry are great deep ball threats but they won't get you that 5 yards in a 3rd & 5 situation.
Rodgers is a heck of a QB.
Winner: Cheeseheads. 34-21
Vikings Vs. Lions:
The most explosive RB in the league versus the Lions' D that gave up 6 TDs to Drew Brees? I love Drew but 6 just shows a lack of defense.
Winners: Vikings. 35-7
Saints Vs. Eagles:
Drew Brees versus Asante means Asante will have a monster game. I think Drew will throw 1/3 of the amount of TDs he had against the Lions.
The Eagles have as explosive an offense as the Patriots if not better. They can beat you on the floor with Brian Westbrook and air it out with Air Mcnabb. The Saints D is just as shaky as the Lions D.
Winners: The American Birds. 35-14.
Panthers Vs. Falcons:
The Panthers' D isn't as good as advertised and the QB woes mean an easy choice.
Winners: Black birds. 21-7
Rams Vs. Redskins:
The Rams have to be the worst team in the NFL. Easy pick here.
Winners: Skins. 24-10
Cardinals Vs. Jaguars:
Cardinals just have the better team.
Winners: Cards. 23-14
Seahawks Vs. 49ers:
The Seahawks have a one dimensional team. They pass and the run is impotent. They only problem is that the 9ers' D is great against the passing game. Frank Gore is an absolute beast.
Winners: The 49 in my name stands for something people. 49ers. 21-7
Buccaneers Vs. Bills:
The Bills have a better offense and defense than most people think. I don't think the game will even be close.
Winners: The Boy I Love Losing Superbowls. 42-7.
Broncos vs. Browns:
The battle of the Belichickens. Just because I hate the evil on, I'll go with the one that isn't a B@st@rd.
Winners: The Horses. 17-14.
Ravens Vs. Chargers:
Like the Patriots, I think the Chargers came alive when the saw their deaths infront of them. The Chiefs were also able to score 24 points against the Ravens. The Bolts have a better offense.
Winners: Bolts. 34-21
Steelers Vs. Bears:
For some reason, I think the Bears will win this game. I have to go with my gut.
Winners: Bears. 17-10
Giants Vs. Cowboys:
The Best DL in football versus Romo the H0m0. The Skins figured out how you beat the Giants last game. I think Romo wins out. He can put points on the board faster than the Giants because he can pass to Roy Williams to make-up a deficit while the Giants have to rely on Jacobs and the running game.
Winners: The Cowboys, big. 34-17
Colts Vs. Dolphins:
To beat Satan Manning you need to bring a really good defense, the Dolphins don't have one.
Winners: Horse shoes. 34-14
