Well here we are again at the start of the football season.Â My favorite time of year.Â This year, I’m actually going to not talk about the Bears very much here, because I’m starting a Bears podcast with a co-worker of mine.Â We’re still sort of in the beginning stages, but keep an eye on www.bearstalk.net for more details and podcasts.Â There’s nothing up yet, but there will be soon.
So for this column, I’ll just do my basic picks for the week, and thoughts therein.
Last Season Record: 128-96
New Orleans @ Indianapolis
I have all kinds of fantasy players in this game, so I’m hoping for like a 40-38 final.
Denver @ Buffalo
Little bit of an upset here.
Miami @ Washington
Yeah, Miami blows.
Pittsburgh @ Cleveland
As much as I’d love to pick Cleveland…. um, yeah.
Tennessee @ Jacksonville
I’m so not sold about Jacksonville this year.
Kansas City @ Houston
Yeah, KC stinks too.
Philadelphia @ Green Bay
Who’s the starting RB for Green Bay?Â Yeah, there you go.
Carolina @ St. Louis
Yeah, not much to say here.
Atlanta @ Minnesota
I’ll be the first person chanting “Joey” though when watching this.
New England @ NY Jets
Man what a fantastic opening day letdown this could be for NE, but I still can’t pick it.
Tampa Bay @ Seattle
yeah, i got nothing
Detroit @ Oakland
Talk about a couple crappy teams playing an opening game.Â However, that actually might make this a somewhat interesting game.
Chicago @ San Diego
Oh man, this is a crazy opening game.Â I really do think the Bears can win this game, but I might be playing the homer a little bit.
NY Giants @ Dallas
Baltimore @ Cincinnati
I don’t really get why Cincy is favored in this game.Â If I was a betting man, I’d throw some money down on this one.
Arizona @ San Francisco
2 favorite sleeper teams going at it.Â Should be a pretty fun game to watch.
