Football picks for Week 4 2009

Well my first week was so-so at 62.5% but I beat Prisco's picks at 53%, cannot be all that bad.

Wash should be able to handle the bucs this week looking for a big game for Moss and Cambpell, but they are giving 8 at home this is a lot of points for a team that has a hard time scoring, but going with Wash both straight up and points.

Hous this looks like an easy win as well as the Raiders are having a hard time scoring points or generating any type of offense, plus take Houston giving 8.5, I am looking at a 10+ win here.

Tenn can Tennessee go 0-4 to start the year, it is possible since Jacksonville's offense was clicking last week adn they are back at home,  I am looking at a close game here, so take Jax and the points, but I am taking Tenn if they go 0-4 someones head is gooing to roll and it will be the QB's

Balt , I just think baltimore is clicking better right now and Brady is just not right yet, look for BALT to win and take the 1.5

Cinn has been playing better the last couple of games beating Pitt and GB, so it looks like a no brainer here, but I will take clev and the 6.5 it is a division game.

Giants should easily win the points and the game, take NYG clearly looking like the best team in the NFC righ now

CHI needs to win this game and big to show that the Lions one game win was just a fluke, if this is not a 10 + point win than Lovie needs to step down.  Take chic straight up and give the  10

Indy well another team that is favored by more than a TD, Indy really looked good last week against Ariz and should win this easily at home, take Indy and the points

NO I like NO here but the Jets are going to play them tough, if NO handles NYJ easily than they might be right up there with NYG as the class of the NFC.  I am not a believer right now, but a convincing win here will change my mind, but right now need to take NYJ and the points but NO to win here

I have to go with Buff in this pickem game, new QB is my reasoning here, but if RB can run than Miami might win, but I will stick with BUFF

SF playing really well right and one spectacular win away from 3-0.  So they should win here, but I like STL to keep it close SF offense not the greatest. So take StL and the 9.5

Denv upset of the week, Denv D playing real well now, hard to run against, I see them throttling Dallas run game so Romo will have to throw and it will be tough going, take denv to win and take the 3 points

Pitt has not impressed this year playing close games, so I like Pitt to win, but I like SD and the 6.5

Minn , just do not think Aaron is the answer in GB, Minn D is good, but this game is a test to see who is the better team right now and Minn coming off that miraculous will ride that emotion with a tough win against a div opponet, but I like GB and the 4.5 here.

There you have it my wk 4 picks, I am hoping to improve on my 62.5% win % with an ultimate goal is to beat the so called CBS experts, plus I am including my points spread favorites.  Looking for a fun season.

My footbal picks wk3 2009

Well I am writing this blog in response to priscos picks a so called expert who can barely barely reach 50% without the spread.  So I am going head to head with the so called experts to see if they should even called themselves an expert.

 My picks are as follows:
Houston should be an easy win here but i am playing walker so i am hoping jags can air it out some
Tenn just do not see tenn going 0-3, but hey they do have Kerry at the helm cannot repeat same stats as last year can he, well if tenn does lose here migt start looking at QB change soon
GB we are talking Rams here
Wash   Det might win this game just because they cannot be as bad as last year, i will wait n see until they actually win a game to give them respect
Minn Does singletary have the niners back already we will see this week, remember they started 2-0 last year, if they win here singletary could be i the running for coach of the year i know it is early and sea did have seneca in the second half last week, looking at a big minn win here
NE is NYJ that good or did NE have a bad game well if ATL wins this game brady n co still need to work out the kinks
NYG looking for a big win here unless they have the let down bug
BAL in a laugher? but this the nfl and there is that any given sunday motto, just do not see clev competing here
Phil Kolb/Vick/Feeley/Mcnabb would not matter in this game unless kc can muster up a ground game
Chi this is a good test for the Bears, however if they lose to a seneca led seahawk team, might as well consider this year a rebuilding year
NO   this game scares me, it is definitely going to be high scoring NO's defense is so-so, depends on trent n buff's d, I am going with the high powered Saints offense here, but would not be surprised to se buff win this one
Pitt is cincy back with that big win at GB, not sure yet, but if they win here might have to start taking them serious
OAK   going with the home team here in this game which has aal the makings of an ugly affair
SD   have not impressed this year, however need to stop that running game to win this one
ARIZ AZ should be able to move the all here
DALL Dall did not impress me last week with romo not trusting his wr's, but they are at home so i am leaning there way
I know all favorites except for Raiders n tenn, since this is just 4 fun why not. The only other games i see upset potential are buff n atl.  Anything can happen, I am also hoping niners to pull off an upset for obvious reasons.

I will do the spread as well next week, some of my picks this week are buff +7 6, bal - 13.5, phil -7.5 n niners +7  i will do full picks next week, my goal 4 the year is 75% w/o spread n 60% against spread.

good luck on your picks

Football Season

Are you ready for some Football?

This has to be the best opening day of any sports, it blows away basketball, hockey and Baseball, there is just so much excitement and anticipation to see how your team is going to do this year.

Is Brady healthy enough to lead the Patriots back to the top, or is Peyton Manning going to shine once again and lead his team to the Bowl.  I still like the Steelers because of Big Ben, might not have all the stats but man can this guy maneuver in the pocket and get off his throws.  I think he does this the best in the league. 

In the NFC are the Cardinals going to repeat with that high powered offense, or do we have the old favorites to dethrone them, like Dallas, New York, Philly or the Pack. Vikings are looking like somewhat of a darkhorse with their stud runner in AP and the old man at QB. 

It really does not matter football is fun to watch and even more exciting when you got your fantasy guys going.  Of course I joined two public internet leagues this year which always adds more excitement to the football season. 

Right now you just do not know what to expect from any of the teams, of course you have your favorities but there is always a darkhorse that emerges and if that is your favorite team you are in for some excitement this year.  However, even if your team does not do that good and you are constantly complaining about your players or management, there is always something to cheer about during the year a big play or great game, (well except for the Lions the only they had to cheer about last year was that the season ended)  Hopefully we have no teams like that this year.

So sit back and enjoy this opening week because you just never know what to expect.
