I have been doing weekly straight-up picks since I was about 8 years old back during the Denver Broncos glory days in the late 1980′s, but this year is the first time since then that I wasn’t competing in some way against someone, somewhere. And it felt WIERD. So wierd, in fact, that I feel the need to make it happen.

Last week, I went 11-5 straight up, with my losses coming when I picked the Giants, Saints, Seahawks, Packers and Panthers to win. Overall, not a bad haul.

So go ahead and give me your picks in the comments section and though I have no prizes to offer other than pimping your name in next weeks post if you beat me, it might be fun to talk a little smack. Good luck!

Ok, so now I get to give my reasoning a bit – for the crazy picks.

First off, Green Bay looked terrible last week and Chicago has a better offense than San Francisco, plus their defense is pretty good as well.

Next, Robert Griffin III made the New Orleans Saints look foolish and they face another mobile quarterback in Cam Newton, so that’s why I went that way. Although, I do think that both RGIII and Andrew Luck are much more mature and talented quarterbacks than Cam Newton. However, Newton is dynamic enough to cause the Saints some problems.

Lastly, I’m not sure if the Titans are any good, but I fully expect the Chargers to begin their early season slide beginning this past Tuesday morning.

If you think any of the other picks are crazy, then well, you’re crazy! Bring on Week 2 – may the Broncos end it with a record of 2-0!!!

    Oak, Buf, and Wash….unfortunately, I can only root for Buf and Wash, so you can have the Miami win. ;) haha

  • Tim Lynch

    Ohh and Chicago…

  • DougEngland

    It is not that I have any real faith in Miami, just going with the old bet against the West Coast team traveling cross country to play the early game rule.
    Have no idea what got into me picking St. Louis.

    Yikes! The one that worries me the most is the NO pick…I think the Panthers are terrible, so why did I pick them? fml

  • Tim Lynch

    Can’t read it. ;)

  • Tim Lynch

    Seattle, eh? Bring it on!

  • Tim Lynch

    I guess I better hope Buffalo and Chicago win…seems everyone disagrees with me there.

    I’m not convinced Dallas is for real yet. Tough conference games can go either way. I also like Seattle’s D.
