Any thoughts and predictions for week 2? For me, Houston at Washington is really intriguing as 2 former Denver coaches will be squaring off against each other. Having said that, Gary Kubiak can kind of guess Mike Shanahan's plan and vice versa. Regardless, I predict Houston over Washington.

For my second pick, I'm surprised to see that Cleveland is actually favored over Kansas City. The way Kansas City played against the Chargers is good enough for me to pick them over Cleveland.

If that was the real KC, you are correct.

I predict the Lions will lose.

Only because they're playing the Eagles CS. Not because they suck or anything.

And hey, for 3 seconds it looked like you almost won one last week.

I also predict the Cowboys will lose because everyone should hate the Cowboys.

Some real intriguing matchups:

Balt @ Cincy-Balt coming off of a low scoring win and Cincy coming off a high scoring loss. Balt has the defensive edge here and Cincy the offensive edge. Cincy's defense isn't all that bad but Balt's defense is that good. I see a relatively high scoring game here(24-21 type). I think defense takes the field in this one and Baltimore wins it.

Pit @ Tenn-Another interesting matchup. Most are picking Tennessee in this one and I agree, however, it can go either way as Pittsburgh's defense is still pretty damned good as they showed last week shutting down a pretty good Atlanta offense.

Philly @ Detroit-Interesting only because it's the dog killer's first start in 4 years.

Seattle @ Denver-Everyone is picking Denver here but I dunno. Seattle looked awful good against a real good defense last week. This one will be closer than most think.

STL @ Oakland-According to the 'experts' at ESPN, it's unanimous that Oakland should win. I actually see STL coming away with a win here.

JAX @ SD-Another unanimous choice picking SD but they looked plum awful last week. Their offense is in disarray with no go to receiver and their defense is banged up. Don't be surprised to see JAX steal this one.

And now for the marquee matchups:

NYG @ Indy-Brother vs Brother and this ain't no cookie licking contest. Unfortunately for Eli, Payton is pissed off for losing in week 1. I really see Indy destroying Big Blue this week.

NO @ SF-This one I'm looking forward to. NO will kill SF with relative ease. SF is the most overrated team coming into the season. They were annointed as NFCW champs before a snap in pre-season because for some reason the 'experts' believe Alex Smith to be a good QB. He is average at best. #3 in his conference at best behind Hasselbeck and Bradford. I'd even put Anderson ahead of him because at least Anderson has had one really good season under his belt.


As for my Cards, can we beat Atlanta in Atlanta? Sure. Will we? Not so sure. Even though we had a good road record last year, it's still an east coast early game and we are abysmal in these situations. We can hang but I just don't see us winning in the GA dome.

Steelers will lose to the Titans. Falcons will beat the Cardinals.

Explain to me why I like you again???



I don't think the Eagles are as good as many seem to think, and I also don't think the Lions are as bad as some people think.


What that translates to tomorrow, I don't know, but I would not be surprised if the Lions pull an upset.

Not without Stafford. Hill sucks plain and simple and that's the trump card.

I didn't know Matthew was out. :(

Crap.

I watched him at Georgia and rooted for him last year too.

Steelers looked pretty good against the Titans. Fooled me.

The Falcons just killed the Cards. I figured that would be a close game.

The Titans lost. :(

But it was one hell of a smash mouth game. :)

The Cards need 2 good running backs to make their offense work. They got nothing.

Hightower broke off a real good run today. That was our only bright spot. This team is slowly drifting back to the way things used to be.

As soon as Warner retired they had no one to replace him with that could run that explosive passing attack.

they have some decent RB's they need a QB who's worth a damn. Derek Anderson isn't going to do crap for them. and they should have gotten something for Leinhart

They tried. No one would trade for him. But here's the deal with Leinart and it has to with Whisenhunt's stubborn pride. Leinart was Green's pick, not his. Leinart actually showed a lot of promise his rookie year. Then along came Whiz who is a run first guy to start with. As coaches do, they want things done his way. But he made it clear that Leinart wasn't his guy. I mean, he had it set up that Leinart will be the QB on 1st and 2nd down. If it got to 3rd down, Warner was brought in. Then Leinart got hurt and the rest is history.

As for a QB, I think Hall has a future. He just needs some seasoning.
