Week 3 picks

Week 1: 10-6 (62.5%)

Week 2: 10-5 (66.7%)

Total: 20-11 (64.5%)

Apparently I can't pick winners any better than picking against the spread. It's a good thing I've been very good vs the spread.

Falcons over Cheifs, bigger fail last week, Matt Ryan 13-33, 2 INT, 0TDs or Cheifs losing 8-23 vs the Raiders?

Bills over Raiders, The Bills look like they are for real, but I'm still not sure. After they stomp the Raiders I won't be any more convinced.

Bucs over Bears, the win over the Colts showed the Bears aren't bad, the loss to the Panthers shows they aren't good.

Panthers over Vikings:

Jean Girard: [has Ricky in an arm lock] I will let you go, Ricky. But first, I want you to say..."I... love... Frerotte."
Cal Naughton, Jr.: Don't you say it, Ricky. These colors don't run.
Ricky Bobby: I'm not gonna say it.
Cal Naughton, Jr.: Good.
Ricky Bobby: Hey, look, Frenchy, I thought about it. So why don't you go ahead and break my arm?
Jean Girard: I do not want to break your arm, Monsieur Bobby, but I am a man of my word. But, you have forced me to do this. You are now mocking me and making me look ridiculous. Just say, "I love Frerotte."
Cal Naughton, Jr.: You know, just to put this in there, I had a whole mess of Frerotte this morning. They're just like Tavaris, maybe even better.
Ricky Bobby: Wait, are they the really mediocre QBs?
Cal Naughton, Jr.: Yeah.
Jean Girard: Yes they are. They are the really mediocre QBs. It's just a French word for them.
Ricky Bobby: Oh, my god, I love those. Well, why didn't someone yell that right-right away?
Jean Girard: So how about you just say, "I like really mediocre QBs" That is a fair compromise, no?
Ricky Bobby: No, then everyone will know I really meant Frerotte. Break it Pepe LePeau!


Pats over Dolphins, Cassel is good enough for the rest of the Pats to carry him over bad teams. How will they do against a good team? We won't find out this week.

Giants over Bengals, The Bengals are just a mess. They were on the rise, but couldn't hold it together long enough to make it past simply average.


Redskins over Cardinals, remember what I said last week about remembering the Cardinals are still the Cardinals? Well they are about it prove it.

Broncos over Saints, I'm not as up on the Broncos as some they needed a ton of luck to beat the LT-less Chargers at home, but I'm down on the Saints. So this is an easy pick.

Niners over Lions, A new level of pain for Lions fans (if that's even possible) as their former backup QB leads a pretty bad team over their truely awful one.

Seahawks over Rams, The Seahawks are in trouble, but they can't be worse than the Rams..... Can they?

Ravens over Browns, two teams I've been down on, but FO loves one of them.

Colts over Jags, It's hard to run when your interior line is as decimated as either teams

Steelers over Eagles, Very good AFC vs Very good NFC, we know how that story has played out the last few years

Packers over Cowboys, I think the Cowboys have taken the Patriots place as the team I want to see lose the most. Lucky for me the Cowboys aren't nearly as good, so picking against them every time they play a good team is a winning strategy.

Chargers over Jets, The Chargers finally play a bad team and get into the win column
