Good afternoon, everybody  Cool  How's everyone doing?  Well, another NFL week; time for more picks & predictions.  Last week, a Ravens fan and a Chargers fan chimed in and insulted me for picking against their teams.  Interestingly enough, I got both picks correct.  I wonder if they'll be back to tell me what I should write in my own blog and insult me some more after going 10-4 last week.  LOL.  Try to do something nice for fellow NFL fans, and there's always some idiot or two that has to try to screw it up.  Anywho, Enjoy the read, gang.  Happy Almost Friday.  Laughing



Bengals @ Falcons-- The Bengals have been an uninspiring team for weeks. They face a Falcons team that comes off an embarrasing loss to the Eagles. I think Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, & company get it going again at home. PREDICTION: FALCONS

Jaguars @ Chiefs-- The Jaguars may be without David Garrard, which isn't really that big of a loss considering how he was playing last week before his injury. But, what concerns me is the running game. I honestly don't know if it's the play-calling or the player, but it seems to me Maurice Jones-Drew just isn't having the impact on this team that he should be. How do you only score 3 points when you have the ball TWICE inside the 5 yard line; with Maurice Jones-Drew as your RB? Unlike the Jags, the Chiefs are a team on the rise. They are coming off two tough road losses; both game in which they competed. I think they get back in the win column this Sunday at Arrowhead. PREDICTION: CHIEFS

Redskins @ Bears-- The Redskins played a tough game against the Colts. It's a game they could have won. But, call this one a gut feeling pick on my part. I think the Bears O-line holds up in this one, and Forte and Cutler have a bounce-back game at home. The Bears are 3rd in the league in run defense; 8th in total defense. The Redskins? Dead last in total defense. That's why I think the Bears O-line holds up in this one. PREDICTION: BEARS

Rams @ Buccaneers-- The Rams bounced back nicely last week against the Chargers. Their defense had seven sacks against one of the better offenses in the league. I don't see how the Bucs succeed where the Chargers didn't. Sam Bradford & company make it two in a row. PREDICTION: RAMS

Eagles @ Titans-- The Eagles may be without DeSean Jackson. That will limit Kevin Kolb's options. This will come down to who runs the ball better and who plays better defense. The Eagles rush defense is 22nd. The Titans rush defense is 8th in the league. Titans have the edge plus they're at home; plus they have Chris Johnson, so I like them to come out on top in this one. PREDICTION: TITANS

49ers @ Panthers-- The 49ers have been bad this season. But, they're at least competitive and they finally won. The Panthers are a mess. They're switching back to Matt Moore at QB. Horrible idea. Not only does that set back Jimmy Clausen's progress, but it creates chemistry problems with the WR's. Not to mention Moore was benched in the first place because of his own horrible performance. What are they doing down there in Charlotte???PREDICTION: 49ERS

Browns @ Saints-- Mangini has said he is only starting Colt McCoy Sunday because the other two QB's are still injured. Here's my problem with that statement. Why go back to either of those QB's when they're healthy? What's the point? I don't generally trust teams with coaches that make dumb decisions. Anyway, Drew Brees and the Saints are at home. I don't see the Browns beating them there; regardless of who's under center. PREDICTION: SAINTS

Steelers @ Dolphins-- Ben Roethlisberger is back, which is no doubt a lift to the Steelers. Yes - the Steelers appear to be the best defense in the league. But, the Dolphins have to start winning games at home if they want to go to the playoffs. My feeling is this Sunday it finally happens. I just don't see the Dolphins losing a third home game in a row. PREDICTION: DOLPHINS

Bills @ Ravens-- The Bills are horrible and have made one dumb decision after another. They face a Ravens team that's angry after blowing a 10-point 4th quarter lead and losing last week. Good luck, Ryan Fitzpatrick. PREDICTION: RAVENS

Cardinals @ Seahawks-- The Cardinals are making the right decision to start Max Hall in leiu of Derek Anderson. The Cardinals running game is improving, & the defense is creating turnovers. I think they slow down the resurgent passing game of the Seahawks and win the battle of turnovers. The rookie QB wins his first road game. PREDICTION: CARDINALS

Patriots @ Chargers-- The Chargers will likely be without Antonio Gates this Sunday. However, at 2-4, they are now officially a desperate team. Brady & company have the talent on their side, but they don't play as well on the road as they do at home. I think the desperation factor plus home field advantage plays a role in the outcome. PREDICTION: CHARGERS

Raiders @ Broncos-- Whether it's Jason Campbell or Bruce Gradkowski, I don't think either QB keeps up with Kyle Orton. Expect the Raiders' struggles to continue and the Broncos passing game to get it done. PREDICTION: BRONCOS

Vikings @ Packers-- I know what's going on with the Vikings. Brett Favre is old and so is that defense. No mystery there. But, the Packers are a mystery to me. Greg Jennings doesn't get the ball enough, and the other players aren't stepping it up enough to make up for all of the injuries. I believe the Packers finally get it going at home to avoid losing any further ground to the Bears. PREDICTION: PACKERS

Giants @ Cowboys-- I think this will be a competitive, hard-fought battle regardless of the Cowboys record. I just don't think the Cowboys are calling their best plays, and they're lacking a bit of discipline. The Giants have the edge in coaching, the running game and on defense. I believe that's where this game will be won. PREDICTION: GIANTS

Week 7 NFL Picks & Predictions

I still can't believe the Panthers beat the 49ers.... Singletary needs to keep quite because I'm sure his job is on the line!

Week 7 NFL Picks & Predictions

Good work, but i've gotta disagree with that Arizona pick.  Seattle at home (no matter how bad they may be) is still Seattle at home.  For a rookie to go into that place and pull an upset is just crazy.  I agree that Hall should get the start, and it will be good experience for him against a division rival, but he and his team are gonna get whipped.  Vegas has Seattle by 6.5...my money is on the Seahawks in this one.

Well done, EXCEPT, what kind of analysis was that on the Seahawks vs Cards game? OF course I have a bit of a bias, but look at the Cards stats. They are ranked almost dead last in almost every category. Seattle has one of the top run defenses in the league and you think the rookie will be able to carry this team with his arm? Final point, THEY ARE PLAYING IN SEATTLE!!!! Max Hall is going to wish he played another sport after Sunday. Seattle should dominate this machup. 28-13

Thank you

Now that i see your NY logo, i understand why Dallas didn't get the desperation play. My cowboys have looked like rookie fools,
but as any other team, Id'd sure hate to play them.
Can't wait for monday night
