Please take this game seriously, Texans.

Woo! Bring on 'dem Cowboys!

fantasysportfans.com

My picks for the week:

Falcons over Rams based on the strength of the Ryan/Jones combo compared to Bradford/Austin.

Baltimore over Cleveland in the battle of the former vs. current Browns team

Carolina over Buffalo, but it's a push (and with the line at -3.5, Vegas apparently agrees)

Bears over Vikings

Packers over RG3s. Hoping that Bobby gets picked off a bunch

Texans over Titans in the battle of current vs. former Houston team

Indianapolis over Miami, although this might be the closest line of the week given how banged up the non-Andrew Luck parts are

Chiefs over Cowboys (Vegas has the teams dead even with a line of -3, so you go with the home team)

East Oregon over San Diego. Rivers makes lots of new derp faces for us when he sees how fast Philly operates.

Lions over Cardinals. Megatron has fewer than two TDs taken away.

Saints over Bucs. What a f*cking mess the latter team is already.

I loathe the Broncos and that fanbase, but it's really hard to see the Giants pulling out a win. Peyton's team is stacked.

Oakland beats Jacksonville in a battle of teams in cap hell. Pryor looked better than expected last week- let's see if he keeps it up.

San Francisco narrowly wins the rematch with the Seahawks in the latter's only home loss of the season

Cinci beats down Pittsburgh. Todd Haley goes into witness protection afterward.

Go Bills. Beat Kitties.
 
2013-09-15 11:05:35 AM
Okay, so I didn't exactly get around to typing this up in time for week 1 (I know you were all hugely disappointed), but a quick check of the Fark Pick'Em League will show that I went 12-4. Now, you can't really blame a guy for those misses: for one, I pretty much had to pick my Ravens to beat the Broncos again (you can stop laughing any time now), and who on Earth saw the Jets winning??? Throw in some ill-conceived faith in the Pittsburgh Steelers and RGIII, and well...such is life.

But we are not here to dwell on the past, oh no. Nor are we here to biatch about huge posts that nobody actually reads, in large part because I work nights now and so I won't be awake to read your biatching. We are gathered here today to get through this thing called life; electric word life, it means forever and that's a mighty long time, but I'm here to tell you: there's something else. My week two picks. Winners, as always, are in bold:

New York Jets at New England Patriots:
In what pretty much nobody anticipated as a battle of undefeated titans, the New York Jest Jets travel north to take on a depleted Patriots team which barely held off the Buffalo Bills last week. All signs point to this being a hard-fought, closesly contested match between bitter division rivals...well, all signs except that this is, after all, the New York Jets vs. the New England Patriots. No matter that the new Wes Welker (Danny Amendola) is out, to be replaced by the old new Wes Welker (Julian Edelman); no worry that one of his tight ends is still recovering from injury while the other is likely fighting to maintain that "tight" status; no regard that his starting tailback's chronic fumble-itis is no longer in remission and the backup is also out; and a hearty Hakuna Matata after his star rookie receiver and tight end both flopped miserably in Buffalo. I still have to go with the official ESPN line and pick Tom Brady to lead his team in passing, rushing, receiving, and return yards while squashing the upstart Jets. 28-9


St. Louis Rams at Atlanta Falcons:
Atlanta lost to Drew Brees last week, while the Rams emerged as convincing 3-point winners against a Carson Palmer-led team. I don't see how the universe fails to right itself in this one, placing both teams back at 1-1.

Carolina Panthers at Buffalo Bills:
Upset alert! Actually, I don't even know if this is truly an upset pick: the Bills went toe-to-toe with New England last week & narrowly lost, while Carolina managed only a lone score against an admittedly great Seahawks defense. For this one, I have to believe that Buffalo is just crazy enough to think they can win it, while Carolina is just Carolina enough to find a way to lose it.

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears:
There are precious few matchups where Jay Cutler can enter the stadium as the unquestioned superior quarterback. Okay, really it's just against Minnesota, Jacksonville, and South Boise State, but here we are. The Vikings still have Adrian Peterson and not really anything else, while the Bears retain enough offensive weapons to make Cutler look decent.

Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens:
I go with the Ravens here for two reasons: first, I always go with the Ravens. Second, they are not the Browns. But seriously, to find the last time Cleveland beat Baltimore in a football game, you have to go back to November of 2007. That's 10 in a row for those who don't do math, during which Baltimore has failed to score 20 points only once (a 16-0 victory) while Cleveland has managed to score 20 exactly once (a 37-27 loss).

Dallas Cowboys at Kansas City Chiefs:
The Chiefs defense looked dominant against an admittedly anemic Jacksonville team last week, while Dallas barely managed to hold off the Giants despite forcing 6 turnovers. Sorry, Di, but I just don't see good things happening for Jerry's kids this weekend.

Washington Redskins at Green Bay Packers:
Would anyone here who honestly believes the same Washington defense that was eaten alive by Michael Vick last week has any hope whatsoever of even slowing down Aaron Rodgers please step forward? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans:
The Titans looked like an honest-to-goodness, real live football team last Sunday, but there's an explanation: for one thing, Tennessee still thinks they have a rivalry with Pittsburgh (dating back to the olden days of the AFC Central), and for another Isaac Redman is not exactly Arian Foster. If you go through the natural progression of all the other Texans that Pittsburgh's players are not, then you see how bleak this one looks for Tennessee.

Miami Dolphins at Indianapolis Colts:
This one was a lot tougher to call than it should have been. Miami notched a convincing win last week (admittedly, against the Browns), while Indy got everything they could handle from an Oakland Raiders squad which was supposed to be the league punchline in 2013. But I'll give the Colts the benefit of the doubt for one more week.

San Diego Chargers at Philadelphia Eagles:
While Philly did everything humanly possible to blow a huge lead last week, San Diego once again proved themselves the master of the come-from-ahead loss. In some alternate dimension Philip Rivers is probably an eight-time MVP who has never blown a fourth-quarter drive and is universally respected for his calm demeanor, but in this reality we all know how the game will go down.

Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals:
In what will no doubt be a barn-burner, we have Matt Stafford, Calvin Johnson, and Reggie Bush against Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald (maybe), and Rashard Mendenhall. Call me silly, but I like the former trio over the latter.

New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
The Bucs just surrendered 256 passing yards to Geno Smith, a rookie quarterback with such household names at wide receiver as Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley, and Clyde Gates, and whose running game totaled 44 yards on 22 carries. The Saints might hang a fiftyburger on them by the end of the half.

Denver Broncos at New York Giants:
Okay, so another 7 passing touchdowns might be a stretch, but it's hard to see how any defense can contain Denver's arsenal, let alone the Giants. Don't expect another 3-INT outing from Eli, either, but the Broncos won't need six turnovers to put away New York.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Oakland Raiders:
I still cannot believe that I'm picking Jacksonville to win a game, but I see the Raiders falling into a perfect storm of fail in this one: coming off an unexpectedly competitive outing against a team much better than the Jags, playing their home opener in front of dozens of screaming fans, Terrelle Pryor having dealt with a week of the media suddenly telling him that he doesn't stink on ice...besides which, after MJD shanked Blaine Gabbert in the huddle (I don't care what their cover story is), Jacksonville will actually be starting a halfway competent quarterback this week. Well, by comparison anyway.

San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks:
This is one of those games I hate to pick, because I can logically see it going either way. But in the end, the Niners just looked too damn good last week to not pick them again.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals:
Pittsburgh lost their best offensive lineman for the season last week, and their running game is divvied up between a guy who fumbled twice on 8 carries, a guy who wasn't familiar enough with the offense to get any carries last weekend, and a guy who they cut after the preseason and just re-signed. Making matters worse, Charlie Batch is no longer there to pick up the pieces after Roethlisberger breaks in two on his 53rd dropback.

\he only got 13 out of Brady, so I should be good with Peyton
 
2013-09-15 11:39:36 AM
Denver is not as good as they looked Week 1, and the Giants aren't as bad as they looked Week 1. Denver wins, but Giants cover.

My best bets for the week (take with a grain of salt, I was 1-2 on best bets last weekend but who the fark saw the Chargers doing fark-all):
Cowboys +3. How much credit are we giving Kansas City for last week? Sure they won, but beating the Jaguars only counts half-a-win in the standings (new rule, look it up). I think Dallas has a great chance to win straight-up.
Bears -6. Ugh, it was difficult coming up with 3 best bets this week, but Chicago shouldn't have any problem stopping Minnesota if they just put 3 guys on Adrian.
49ers +3. Can we all stop talking about the offsetting penalties thing? Please? San Francisco goes in to Seattle and drinks their Frappucino milkshake.
Last week (NYP / ESPN / CBS / Best Bets): 7-8-1 / 8-8 / 6-10 / 1-2. Here's hoping for better luck this week.

I'll be starting the moving process from noon to mid-afternoon, hope to be back in plenty of time for the Giants game.

Damn espn sucks. I watched 5 minutes and turned the tv off. Trash.

Ok Buffalo, lets try not to give the other team the victory today.

Oh boy oh boy. Rockin all my Jags gear for what should be our easiest game of the schedule... and I still expect it to end something like 7-6 Raiders.

Believe it or not I go into this game less sure of a win for the Saints than I was wi5th Atlanta. Bucs games are always weird and both teams do head scratching plays in them . I think that the Saints on paper are a better team but I have butterflies every damned time the Saints and Bucs meet. Ill drink heavily and hope the Saints come out firing on all cylinders

Cleveland will make this game close, but our o-line is too banged up (Oniel Cousins vs Elvis Dumervil is actively trying to get Brandon Weeden killed) and we're still missing our top wideout.

Ravens 26, Browns 19
