    Re: WEEK TWO NFL PICKS and

         The Miami Herald's Greg Cote is one of the best at picking winners. Last year, he correctly chose 54.7% against the spread. But, like the rest of us, Cote had a horrible Week One. Here's how he sees the Cards @ Pats game:

    CARDINALS (1-0) at PATRIOTS (1-0)
    Line: NE by 13 1/2.
    Cote’s pick: NE 38-17.
    TV: 1 p.m., Fox.
    Tom Brady with a much-improved defense is a scary thing, which is why Pats are Super Bowl faves at the moment. And the English have won an NFL-best 10 consecutive home openers at Razor Blade Stadium, which is why this is the biggest point spread in Week 2 by a lot. Can’t see Kevin Kolb and the Cacti hanging within two TDs of this opponent in this place.

         Here are the rest of Cote's picks:   http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/09/14/3001392/greg-cotes-week-2-nfl-picks.html

    TX... The bounce back effect works a few different ways.  Here both teams should bounce back doubling the effect producing convincing win, evening both teams' records at 1-1.

    Pittsburgh is tough at home , meanwhile the new Jets get a taste of the road.  revis might be nicked, ... Lebeau pressure schemes should get to Sanchez . Pittsburgh should be ravenous ...

         The word now is that Darelle Revis (concussion) and TE Justin Keller (hamstring) are out for the Jets...and James Harrison (knee) and Troy Polamalu (calf) will not play for the Steelers. I would not have created a new post on this, if I was able to edit my previous discussions above, on the Jets @ Steelers. It is what it is:
    http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/sports/steelers/on-the-steelers-james-harrison-will-not-play-sunday-653312/, and http://www.timesonline.com/sports/steelers/injuries-add-up-on-steelers-defense/article_57b80b84-3873-580d-b6da-60a589375847.html/

         Folks...the Steelers' "D" has gotten old. James Harrison is now 34 years old, and Polamalu is 31. With old age comes more frequent injuries...and injuries suffered take longer to heal.

    On second thought, I might push up the Arizona spread even higher.  Their starting quarterback, Skelton, was injured midway through the fourth quarter.  He's pictured holding his knee, and whatever it is they carted him off.  At the very least, Skelton hasn't been practicing for the Patriots game and the Arizona coach isn't talking.  The backup, Kolb, is a known quantity and he's a backup for a reason.  He lost his job to Skelton and was terrible in preseason.  He was good enough to complete one touchdown drive against the completely unprepared Seattle Seahawks.
