I've been thinking all day who I was going to pick.  Well, until I forgot about it.  I was leaning Browns and since that's Matt's pick and I'm late, I am going to fall in line.

I hope that many Clevelanders enjoyed their free beer last night!

What beer? Bud Light (and all light/lite beers) is beer-flavored water.

I didn't think they'd do it, but I'm actually glad my pick was wrong and they won. Hopefully Baker Mayfield is the real deal. Because the Browns' fans have suffered for far too long. To the point that I wouldn't be surprised if the majority were masochists.

With my TNF victory secured, I'm ready to make some picks!

Sunday, September 23

  • Bengals at Panthers - I believe. I also think we're supposed to think the Panthers are great, but what have they done to prove that?  They're 1-1 and their win was vs a terrible Cowboys team at home by 8 points.  Giant killers they are not. Points in bunches like the Bengals they are also not. 
  • Bills at Vikings - Brother, please.  The Bills are the new Browns.  They are unequivocally awful.  We're already resting starters because this should be an easy W.
  • Colts at Eagles - I'll go on a limb here and pick a Colts team against the Eagles playing Wentz for the first time since injury. 
  • Raiders at Dolphins - I don't think either team is great.  That said, I've been down on the Gruden decade-long experiment from the inception.  So far I'm proved right.  Can't turn against that now. 
  • Broncos at Ravens
  • Giants at Texans
  • 49ers at Chiefs
  • Titans at Jaguars
  • Saints at Falcons
  • Packers at Redskins
  • Chargers at Rams - We get the Rams here in LA Thursday night.  Guess who will be at that game...?
  • Cowboys at Seahawks - Two fairly inept teams makes me pick the home squad.
  • Bears at Cardinals - Even in their worst years recently, and there have been some bad ones, the Cards were always competitive.  Not this season.  If the Bears can't beat this team then they aren't as far along as we've been told they are. 
  • Patriots at Lions

Monday, September 24

  • Steelers at Buccaneers - Is this to stir the pot a little?  Sure.  Is this to create some MNF drama? You bet.  Do I think the Steelers as an organization are in total disarray?  Absolutely.  If this were at home, I'd pick 'em but on the road with Fitzmagic and a team that's clicking on all cylinders?  I'd be stupid to take the normally risky bet.
TONS of options to disagree with me, Hagerman, and over a day to do so.  Get off your ass and make your picks.  That's an order!

Don't get down on Browns fans for being masochists, Brian.  Your team has been marginally better for a decade or more and I'm sure you haven't decided to abandon all hope.  I know I've stuck with the Vikes through thick and thin because, well, I'm a fan.  They're my team and fuck anyone who says I should jump ship.

This feels like one of those Home Field weekends.  Even though I picked a significant number of road teams.

Sunday, September 23

  •        Bengals atPanthers - It all comes down to Cam.
  •        Bills at Vikings
  •        Colts at Eagles (MATT DISAGREES!) - I think the Eagles D will assert itself.
  •        Raiders at Dolphins
  •        Broncos at Ravens - Stealth classic?
  •        Giants at Texans
  •        49ers at Chiefs - Chiefs up early and hang on.
  •        Titans at Jaguars - Patriots hangover would be awful here against a division foe.
  •        Saints atFalcons (MATT DISAGREES!) - I'm already sweating though.
  •        Packers atRedskins
  •        Chargers at Rams
  •        Cowboys at Seahawks - I don't have the guts to disagree.  Russell Wilson will be zigging and zagging all day.
  •        Bears atCardinals
  •        Patriots atLions

Monday, September 24

  •        Steelers at Buccaneers (MATT DISAGREES!) - All sorts of reasons for my guys to lose here.  I think they will simplify the defense and try to get back into pass-rusher form from last year.  And for the love of Art Rooney can we not turn the ball over one time?  I'm hoping the Steelers D plays as well against the Bucs as the Eagles (tall order) and the offense plays as well against the Bucs as the Saints.  Plus, it's week 3!  We are contractually obligated to have some MONDAY NIGHT DRAMA!

Did the Vikings and Bills switch sides & jerseys prior to the game?   Wow.

Before the start of the season I thought the NFC North would be the toughest in the conference. Now the "Black $ Blue" division is just plain black and blue.
