    Granted that im a little slow to the chuck wagon, lets lay out some nostradamus picks. As long as I can get to a pc to post, I will post my weekly picks.

    So to be truthful, I went on pure instinct and picked the Ravens on TNF. ANYTHING can happen on Thursday games jus check out your local bettors stats.

    For anyone that notices, ESPN pickers out pick the CBS guys about 40 games + a season. SO here are ESPNs *expert* picks.

    Monday, Sep. 09
    Philadelphia at Washington 6:55 pmESPN
    Houston at San Diego 10:20 pmESPN <-------UPSET PICK

    Ran out of Road games to pick, although traditionally the first 2 weeks of the season can be as many as 9 road teams winning. Early season jitters I guess.

    Also IMO if the season opener is any kind of precursor, im predicting alot of 4k passers 16+ easily. Rules change and so do the schemes.

    Absolutely no offense, Thunder...but I believe that that first pick actually starts you out at 0-2. :cool:

    what you think about the possiblity that the TNF game was just a preview of the rest of the entire leauges season? IMO we could be seeing alot of passing records getting set.

    Going to try my hand at this - I generally perform poorly when it comes to W/L picks - my weakness being I like rooting for underdogs and hate picking teams I despise to win... but maybe that's changed in the offseason? :laugh:

    Atlanta at New Orleans 1:00 pm FOX --- SAINTS (should be a great game, think NO eeks out a win at home)

    heh yea that KC pick prob gonna be off by alot. Jus heard KC has yet to score 30 or more points in a game in 3 years. I got a feeling that ends today.
