I am doing my picks from a remote location, and by remote I mean XM's living room while we shoot the bull and by shoot the bull I mean drink whiskey and cuss a lot. Last week was another decent week but would have been even better if the Cowboys had held on. On to the picks...
Last week: 11-5
NO at CHI: Saints- All signs point to Bears, so I'm going Saints.
TB at ATL: Falcons- Home teams have success in the NFC South this year and I expect this game will be no different.
SEA at STL: Rams- Just because.
BUF at NYJ: Jets- If the Jets choke here, I can't wait to see the Favre press conference. How great would it be if the Jets and Packers miss the playoffs.
SF at MIA: Dolphins- I said on the podcast that the Dolphins will emerge from the AFC East and I stand by that.
SD at KC: Chiefs- I expect another great effort from KC this week. The Chargers look like they don't want to be out there.
GB at JAC: Packers- The broken dreams bowl.
WSH at CIN: Redskins- Since Clinton Portis is my boy from the U, let's just move on.
TEN at HOU: Texans- An upset special, Titans have clenched and Texans are on fire.
DET at IND: Colts- The country(including the state of Michigan) is really getting behind the 0-16 dream.
MIN at ARI: Cardinals- Just because the Cards clinched doesn't mean they don't want to finish ahead of the Vikings.
NE at OAK: Patriots- A must have game for the Pats. Not to jump up on a soapbox here, but if you think you have to make a joke about Matt Cassel's father to be funny, you're a fucking idiot.
DEN at CAR: Panthers- Catfish refuses to call this a trap game but in my mind it is a classic trap game yet the Panthers will survive.
PIT at BAL: Ravens- Will Baltimore really give away another game to Pittsburgh?
NYG at DAL: Giants- Not a Giants fan by any stretch of the imagination but please put a stake in this team.
CLE at PHI: Eagles- This team just won't die. I'm talking about the Eagles, not the Browns, they die early and often.
Tough to pull a Clue fact on short notice since I'm trying to get these in before the NFL Network game tonight (don't worry XM doesn't get it so I have no clue of the score) but enjoy some Clue Math.
