regular programming later tonight
So for the zero readers who may want to put down some fake money (wait,  times [fake money] = Rich Rich Rich!!!), herewith are the picks and predictions.
The Picks (home teams in CAPS)
Saints (+6.5) over the COLTS. No built in advantage playing in the dome. Everyone seems healthy. Just seems like too many points and I'm not sold on the Colts D.
BILLS (+3.5) over the Broncos. Just because. This is probably a bad pick, but I never pick against the Bills at home. Even in September. Plus, one of my fantasy teams is named Losman's flowing Locks, so I'm obligated here.
Pittsburgh (-3.5) over the BROWNS. I have no idea what to make of the Browns. This seems like an easy one.
Philly (-2.5) over GREEN BAY. Although I hope for the sake of the aforementioned Losman's Locks that Favre reverses recent history against the Eagles.
HOUSTON (-1.5) over Kansas City. Seems like Houston should be at least (-3) at home. KC is horrible.
Tennessee (+5.5) over JACKSONVILLE. Was Del Rio actually ever a good coach?
Atlanta (+2.5) over MINNESOTA. I think I might be drinking the SG Kool-aid.
Pats (-5.5) over JETS. J E T S Shut the $!&* Up!!! God I hate the Jets. I still remember Frank Lewis almost busting one against them in the '82 postseason only to get dragged down short of a TD.
RAMS (-1.5) over Cackalacka. This looks like another one I will be wrong on. Especially with Holt's injury.
WASHINGTON (-3.5) over Miami. Art Monk Belongs in the Hall of Fame! Art Monk Belongs in the Hall of Fame!
OAKLAND (-2.5) over Detroit. I have not drunk the Detroit Kool-Aid. Shaky QB? Check. Ponderous RB situation? Check. Mad Scientist Offensive Coordinator? Check.
WHALE'S VAGINA (-5.5) over Chicago. Line seems high, but I am scared of San Diego this year.
SEATTLE (-6.5) over Tampa Bay. Tampa has the chance to ruin about 99% of the suicide pools out there.
DALLAS, (-3.5) over the Giants. If there is a god. And I hate the Giants.
Baltimore (+3.5) over the CRIMINALS. They won't go 13-3 again, but they should walk in that division (and given that McNair is their QB, walking seems about appropriate).
SAN FRAN (-3.5) over Arizona. Please. Arizona? Neither party is mine. The Jackass or the Elephant.
