    Yeah, it's early. But I figure that we need a break from Beli-Tape-Gate.

    Anyway, this week's games:
    For shits-and-giggles, I'll showcase my ignorance with the following picks (Best Bets in bold): Pittsburgh, Carolina, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Green Bay, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Detroit, Dallas, Seattle, Baltimore, Denver, Chicago, New England and Philadelphia.

    The fanboy in me says if Pittsburgh loses this week, it will be a bad, bad loss. One of those games that you expect to win.

    SD/Pats game is huge. If SD houses them, BB's seat will get even hotter than it is now.

    I am very curious to see how banged up the Ravens are after the Cincy game.

    Can Houston keep it up? Maybe. Can Detroit?

    So, should I start Joey Galloway over Larry Fitzgerald or Roy Williams?

    HM: No.

    And, nobody gives an F about your fantasy team. [/youknowwho]

    The Pack would be well-served to go 2-0 out of the gate. Go Pack go!

    Little nervous here.

    Dolphins are 20-4 in their past 24 home games in September (when the humidity is up there). Included in those wins are wins over the Broncos and Steelers, when both teams went to the AFC Title games in those years. So, forgive me if I'm a bit apprehensive. I still say the Boys win, but it'll be closer than you think.

    I know it's early, but the teams up against the wall - at least those who were considered preseason contenders - are St. Louis and New Orleans.
    If you're making the playoffs, you probably have to win at home against San Fran and on the road against Tampa Bay.

    Well, yeah, but the Bears are home and 12-point favorites. I might take the Chiefs against the spread, but I expect Chicago to win.

    Um, who shouldn't kick the shit out of the Kansas City Herms?

    I don't think the Saints' left more questions than answers. Who are the real Saints? The team that was able to play the Colts to a standoff in the first half? Or the team that got smoked 31-0 in the second half?

    St. Louis-San Francisco is interesting because it's the first time we'll see how much they improved over the off-season. If they can beat the Rams--or even hang with them--maybe all of SF's off-season spending was worth it.

    Kellen Clemens' first start couldn't be tougher, facing blitz-crazy Baltimore with a left side of the offensive line that believes pass blocking should following "one-one thousand, two-one thousand" rules.

    If the Bears lose, they ain't makin' the playoffs.

    If the 49ers win, they will make the playoffs.

    Bears ain't losing to the Herms.

    I do think the Niners will beat the Rams.

    I'll be in a sports bar in Missouri for the game, so the Bears better not lose.
