So time for everyone to over react to how every team did in the NFL based on one week. As in Carson Wentz is a hall of famer and the Browns should have drafted him, Patriots can win with any QB, Skins are dead on arrival, etc… Let me just say one guy possibly getting out of bounds doesn’t guarantee the Cowboys win by kicking a 60 plus yard field goal… Tried to buy an Andy Dalton color rush jersey and all sold out sounds to me like the NFL left money on the table for their charity. Just saying if the sales were going to their bottom line more jersey’s would have been available…

NFL Week 2 Picks 2016

September 14, 2016

0913161932.jpg10-6 in the picks last week. Missed how bad Browns are, not enough credit to how good Bucs are, some close games that could have went either way with 11 games decided by about a touchdown.

Jets – Bills are just bad, Panthers – bounce back after losing to a good team in Week 1, Skins – Boys young QB struggles on road, Steelers – back to back road games does Bengals no favors, GMen – only cause they are home, Pats – no struggles without two key players last week, Chiefs – build off of epic win last week and for the rest of the season, Lions – Stafford spreads the ball around and Titans too young, Ravens – Browns are horrible, Hawks – Rams are horrible, Cards – Bounce back over tough test against Bucs, Chargers – West Coast travel too much for Jags, Raiders – believe that Del Rio will lead this team to more wins as needed, Broncos – no “D” for Indy and plenty for Broncos, Pack – Sam’s first game or A. Rodgers shows how good he is with all his weapons, Eagles – Bears not that good this year.

Carolina – no no first year QB, Atl – wins early fades late, Bal – taking the home team, Houston – Bears are no good this year, Pack – have the early faith that Pack is on fire this year, Chiefs – great D while Rivers could keep it close, Raiders – Saints going down Raiders coming up, Bengals – homer and just take care of business trip, Browns – no no Rookie QB who didn’t even play Division I, Titans – run all over the Vikes who wish they had another week with Bradford, Hawks – home and D show sup big time, GMen – shows Dak that preseason speed isn’t regular season speed, Colts – Welcome back Mr. Luck, Cards – Hey NE didn’t you forget somebody at home, Steelers – close but Pitt in end, 49ers – because Gabbert is better than Keenum.

So the Baltimore Sun printed a column about if the Ravens don’t succeed this season then get ready for Marc Trestman to be the fall guy. Ultimately they hinted while not fair who else could get the ax because Baltimore will want blood. I guess? First not really positive thinking that your are going to have a good season by writing such a piece before the season even starts. Second they noted while the defensive coordinator got his squad to play better toward the end of the season and has added some real talent for him to work with that he will be safe. How about Ozzie should have given Trestman some real talent to work with so that he would be safe too? Is this Joe’s salary too large so that they can’t spend to give him the help? Is the relying on a 37 year old WR? Is that the great Ozzie blowing up his wide receiver core by replacing Torrey with a broken rookie wide out that never played? … Take the Bengals. Who would be their fall guy? Young wide receiver core not yet ready to play on the big stage? New offensive coordinator not as good as the last one? Injuries sucked the talent out? Maybe? Possibly? Probably? Are these areas of concerns? Yes to the first. Maybe to the second. And Yes to the third. But play the games man and maybe we will win and win and win. … Notre Dame lost. Is their season over? Maybe? Then again Ohio State rallied to the championship with an early season lose a couple of years ago. Got to settle this QB thing or not getting much better. … NFL starts on Thursday. Who is excited? …
