Vikings 23 @ Lions 13
JeremyAs hard as it is to go against my boys here I can see the Vikes easily losing this game. For whatever reason Detroit always seems to do well against the Vikings. A shootout always ensues. Was there any doubt the Lions would get thier first win of the season against the Vikings a couple years ago? All that having been said the Vikings are the better team and should be able to beat Detriot provided they don't beat themselves.
MattReally, how can you get excited about football when the Twins are in the middle of a pennant race? Minnesota 27 - Detroit 13
JonThe Twins own the Tigers...these are must win games.
SarahI am very conflicted for this game, and no it's not because I do not like the Vikings. The Vikings appear to be the better team in this contest, but they do not have the luck when it comes to playing Detroit at Detroit. So, I am going to pick the Lions to win this game. Of course we'll only know who wins when the game is over.
Packers 13 @ Cardinals 20
JeremyGreen Bay gets 3 easy games in a row to get their confidence back after the Viking-enduced slaughtering in week one. Arizona had 50 some thousand seats left over for last weeks game. Seeing as it would be cheaper to fly to Arizona, get a ticket, spend the night and fly home, than to get a ticket to a game at Lambeau, expect there to be about 5 times as many Packer fans at the game than Cardinals fans.
MattArizona's new stadium (www.azcardinals.com/tickets/newstadium.php) is going to have a "retractable" playing field that gets rolled in and out of the stadium for games. Maybe they should look into rolling in an actual football team before they finish with the stadium. Although I'm picking Green Bay, I still hope Arizona wins.
JonAhh the worst team in the league...against Arizona.
I guess the Packers are the pick here.
SarahAlright, I never like seeing the Packers play someplace else, but I like their odds in this game. Arizona has surpassed the Bungles as the worst team in the NFL. The Cardinals were shut out by the SEAHAWKS last week with a score of 38. I know, I know the Seahawks are suppose to be good this year, but it shouldn't be that bad of score! The Pack came back last week with an astounding BOO YA! Yea yea it was against the Lions, but they looked good. Favre needs to get into his groove pretty fast or this season could be a long one.
Bills 7 @ Dolphins 17
JeremyNo one is hotter than the Bills so far. Eventually that heat has to wear off, right?
MattI can't think of anything to write. Buffalo 46 - Miami 3
JonBuffalo has been playing some unreal ball recently. I think they'll win, but let me ask you this...why was Doug Flutie benched for the playoffs when he was the starting quarterback that helped them get there? Seriously.
SarahBuffalo is HOT HOT HOT! I bet New England is sad they got rid of Bledsoe and Milloy because they are smokin' on the Bills. Miami beat the Jets resoundingly, but the fact remains they still lost to the Texans during the first week. Ricky Williams is doing alright but he's not awesome like say Priest Holmes. (Which is who I would've picked if I had the first pick of a draft, but alas no one invited me and no one is joining the league I started. (Matt this means you.))
Raiders 10 @ Broncos 31
JeremyOakland just barely edged out the Bengals last week. Given their perfomances in the preseason and these first 2 games I think it's a bit early to say they suck, but certainly it's time to question if they are still amongst the elite teams in the league.
MattBill Romanowski used to play for Denver. Not that that matters or anything, I just really have nothing. Denver 72 - Oakland 46
JonWord from Mike Shanahan is that Art Monk will be Denver's starting wide receiver. That should put the Broncos over the top. By the way, Steve Beuerlein isn't your average backup quarterback.
SarahI saw last night that Bill "the biggest ass in football" Romonawski has a commercial for Bowflex. Why does this guy get rewarded for ending his own teammate's career? I don't understand this at all. I hope Denver (even though this is my 2nd most hated team) creams the corn out of "Romo." HA! Go Plummer.

|This is the first I've heard of your league Sarah. Where did you make this announcement, Chicago??|
|Sarah - 4089 Posts|
|What are you talking about? I talked about it at the Twins game, and resent the email. Jon got the email and signed up, and I'm assuming you got it and just beleted it! I'll try again although I don't think ur comment means ur interested..... Go Pack! Go Twins! It's doug jersey wearin' tomorrow....|

|I resent the e-mail too. It's too impersonal and all you get is spam anyway. People should stick to the phone or regular mail.|

|She sent out 2 emails and talked to you about it. Perhaps at the time you were on the same drugs that resulted in your picks last week.|
|Jon - 2846 Posts|
|ahh...a good pun...fun for all...or most...or something like that|
|Matt - 3354 Posts|
|Seriously, I never got the e-mails or at least I don't remember getting them, and I don't recall the conversation at the game. Although you guys do have a penchant for making plans and forgetting to let me know about them.|
|Jon - 2846 Posts|
|The email comes from the sender "fantasyfootball" or something like that...so I think I probably just deleted it the first time, as I imagine you did Matthew.|

|My oh my the Packers. I hope Daunte was kept out of the Vikings game for precautionary measures and not because there is anything seriously wrong. 3-0 all division wins, 2 on the road, I think week 3 is too early to call anything but we're in good shape to run away with it. Gus for MVP!!!!|
