Why the hell not?
Thinking about Palin, Obama, Bush, McCain, and Republicans has my head hurting, so why not make some NFL picks?
I’m just a casual fan, and the only team I usually follow is the Colts, but I won’t let my lack of expertise keep my from making my own picks. They can’t be worse than those of many experts.
Seattle at Buffalo: Seahawks win.
Isn’t Jim Zorn doing something somewhere these days? I haven’t known how to read Seattle since they moved to the NFC.
Tampa Bay at New Orleans: Saints win.
New Orleans deserves to win after most of their fans were evacuated last week.
New York Jets at Miami: Jets win.
Brett Favre should have retired and been forever a Packer. But sadly, Miami is so bad that Favre and the Jets should win easily.
Jacksonville at Tennessee: Jaguars win.
The Jags are a great team. It’s just sad for them that they play in the AFC South, so they have to face the Colts twice a year.
Detroit at Atlanta: Lions win.
Becuase I am still pissed at Michael Vick.
Houston at Pittsburgh: Steelers win.
I’ve enjoyed my time in Pittsburgh much more than my time in Houston.
Kansas City at New England: Patriots win.
The evil Patriots always win. Unless they choke.
Cincinnati at Baltimore: Ravens win.
Didn’t the Ravens have a great defense a couple of years ago? Or somehing?
St. Louis at Philadelphia: Eagles win.
The Eagles are good, and I don’t like driving in and around St. Louis.
Arizona at San Francisco: 49ers win.
How many games have the Cardinals won since they moved to Arizona? 2? 12?
Carolina at San Diego: Chargers win.
The Chargers practice in a climate that is far more comfortable than that of the Panthers.
Dallas at Cleveland: Browns win.
I hate the Cowboys and feel an affinity for Cleveland and all of its joblessness and its immigrant community.
Chicago at Indianapolis: Colts
Because the Colts should win their first game in their new stadium. And I just want to Colts to win.
Minnesota at Green Bay: Packers win.
If the Packers win a lot this year, Favre will be really pissed, and that might be fun to watch. And the Packers are damn good.
Denver at Oakland: Broncos
Denver is a consistently good team, while Oakland is consistently bad. When was the last time a Raiders’ fan scared anyone?
Those are my picks for week one. I have a feeling that they won’t be too different from the predictions of the NFL experts.
