Well I have finally forced myself to sit down and type this out.
What has my extensive research has concluded is . . .
Some crazy ass crap is going to happen, but most of the usual suspects will be there at the end so let’s take a look at the National Football Conference
NFC Wild Cards Philadelphia and Carolina
Conference Title Game: Dallas over Chicago
AFC Wild Cards Denver and Pittsburgh
Conference Title Game: New England over San Diego
Super Bowl XLII New England over Dallas
I plan to give more detailed explanation about these picks, but knowing me I will watch Week#1 and panic. So I reserve the right to make retractions and corrections.
Here are my picks for Week#1
Buffalo (+3) over Denver – Buffalo 27 – 14 (That ones for you Eric)
Houston (-3) over K.C. – Houston 24 – 9
Minnesota (-3) over Atlanta – Brain Brohm Watch starts today -Minnesota 27 – 17
New York (+6) vs. New England. Pats win, but the Jets keep it close 27 – 24
Philadelphia (-3) over Green Bay. Pack has made strides and will be close, but Eagles put them away late 28 – 21
Pittsburgh (-4.5) over Cleveland. Another horrible year starts yet again for Cleveland. Pittsburgh 34 – 17
Washington (-3) over Miami. I have a feeling that Trent Green will play like he did in K.C. Sadly I am thinking of Week#1 of last year. He is not going to make through this season. Washington 23 – 10
St. Louis (+1) over Carolina – Even though the Panthers have been able to contain the Rams at the Dome, they won’t be able to do this Sunday. St. Louis 26 – 14
Oakland (-1.5) over Detroit. The Lane Kiffin Era begins with a win. Raiders 21 – 10
Seattle (-5.5) over Tampa Bay. Not the way Gruden wants to start the season since his job is on the line. Seahawks 30 – 20
Game of Day
San Diego (-6) over Chicago. Bad Rex stops by and hilarity ensues. San Diego 35 – 17
Dallas (-6) over New York. Sunday night is family night and do we need to show this slaughter. Dallas 28 – 13
Baltimore (+2.5) over Cincinnati. The Bengals will show their true stripes. No not prison stripes, just it can’t play D. Baltimore 31 – 19
San Francisco (-3) over Arizona. They are who we thought they are, the Cardinals. San Francisco 31 – 24
All right I have to get some sleep.
