    I got 7 games out of 4 right last week, with 2 undecided...I said if I got over 50% I would move my pics here...so I'll give it a shot...it's a fun way to excercise the mind...

    Some things I'll add...If I'm 100% sure...I'll say 'It's a lock or 100%

    If it's a total random guess...I'll say that...

    If I'm unsure...I'll write like 70% sure they will win...in other words I'll percentile my confidence in the pic....

    And for now it's just win or loose...not into the spread stuff and all...not good enough for that yet...and don't follow induvisual players close enough to have that good of a feel about scores...

    And with that, I'll start on next weeks pics...some of them...all of next weeks pics will be on this post...I'll start with just a few for now...

    1. Cardinals vs Falcons...Cardinals win...they have the momentum right now..

    2. Ravens vs Bengals...Ravens win...their defense is incredible..the beat the Jets..

    3. Cheifs vs Browns...Chiefs win...the beat the Chargers tonight..looking strong...stronger than the Browns at least...

    4. Bears vs Cowboys...Cowboys always seem to flounder...so do the Bears...both teams seem to loose, win they should win and win when they should loose, and now their playing each other...hard pic...undecided as of now...

    5. Eagles vs Lions...Eagles win...both teams lost their openers...Michael Vick looked good against GreenBay...Eagles starting quarter back injured...so not sure who will start...but I think they will get it done...80% sure...

    6. Buffalo Bills vs Green Bay...Green Bay win...Green Bays at home next week, and will win...Buffalo is lost right now...

    7. Steelers vs Titans...clash of two steel curtains..both are 1-0...both are confident...undecided as of now...

    8. Dolphins vs Vikings...Vikings win...this is a bias pic...in other words Brett Farves made me go with the Vikings...they lost their opener to the Saints...this week they play at home, and I can't see the Vikings loosing at home after their opening defeat in New Orleans...

    9. Panthers vs Buccaneers Tampa...Hard one...I picked the Panthers to beat the New York Giants, and was wrong...the Panthers didn't look as strong as I had hoped...and Tampa, well...their another team that falters a lot...last year they were like 3 and 12...I don't think Tampas got their act together yet...I'm going with a Panther win...70% sure...

    10.Seahawks vs Broncos...Seahawks win...Broncos lost in Jacksonville, I pic I got right...I think Tebow is a big distraction to the Broncos...kinda over hyped...not his fault...and the Seahawks seem young and hungry again...they trounced the 49's...a game I was undecided on last week...and the Seahawks new coach from USC Trojans, seems to have Seattle all pumped up...Seahawks win this one at Denver...

    11. Rams vs Raiders...with the Raiders, you just never know...it's like flipping a coin...last week I picked the Rams and the Raiders to both win...and they both lost...now their playing each other next week in Oakland...hard one...
    Totally random pic...Raiders win at home...

    12. Patriots vs Jets...Jets at home...Jets lost a tough one to the Ravens...a pic I got right last week...and now their at home...the jets handed it to the Patriots last year, and seem to have their number...still...this is a very hard game to decide upon...so another random toss up pic...Patriots win...50% sure...And the Jets have all this Live tv stuff going on and some locker room incident that involved a female reporter...

    13. Jaguars vs Chargers...Jaguars beat the Broncos on Sunday, at home...are they ready for the big time??...they're another team that always seems to loose, win you think they should win...they play in San Diego...and I see them loosing this game...flying clear across the country and all...to many distractions for this young team...Chargers win...70% sure...

    14. Texans vs Redskins...The Texans upset Gary Payton and the Colts...I picked the Cots to win and was wrong...I don't have a good read on this team nor do I one the Redskins, other than McNabb is their quarter back..(formerly of the Eagles)...can McNabb carry the skins over the texans?
    Redskins play at home...this one is a toss up pic...random...Texans win...I guess some would consider that a upset...again...random pic 50% sure...

    15. Giants vs Colts...wow...brother against brother...like the Sarena sisters...
    Hard one...I'm going with big brother on this one...what big brother wants to be shown up by little brother...Payton and the Colts will get it done somehow...Colts win at home...

    And finally...

    16. Saints vs 49's...Saints are still looking good...they beat the Vikings on Sunday in last years superbowel re-match...Drew Breeze is still hot...a southern version of Tom Brady...Saints win in San Francisco...

    Ok, I'm done...I doubt I will change anything...still undecided with the Steelers and Titans...

    Again, just a fun excercise in trying to read teams...and it's best for me to pick early on in the week when I can still somewhat measure their performances from Sunday or Monday games...

    Last week I got 7 pics correct, and 4 wrong..and 2 undecides...No more undecides...if I can't decide I'll just make it a random pic...

    Steelers vs Titans...Steelers win...

    Rather than re-edit above post...I will decide my undecides right here...

    I was listening to ESPN and other radio sports shows...who all seem to think the Titans are the better team...

    Therefore I give this game to the Steelers...cause they're the underdogs and will have something to proove...and have the prooven quarterback...

    The Titans beat the Raiders last week...38-13....impressive...shows they have a decent offence...but against the raiders...hmm...

    And the Steelers beat the Falcons last week...15-9

    Looks like the Steelers defence held the Falcons to just field goals...but their offense didn't do much better...

    The Steelers will have the chip on their shoulders this Sunday..so I'm going with them for the win...

    Ok, and with Dallas vs Chicago Bears...I'm going with Dallas...

    Just a hunch...both teams always seem to let you down when you need them to win...but Romo and boys will get it done this Sunday...

    Severely disappointed, not a single picture. All there was was a wall of text. I didn't even read any of it. Include pics. >=(

    I'm not sure what you mean...but all I'm trying to do here is pic winners...

    My goal is to be able to get 90% of the pics correct...

    Yes I know, compared to my other threads, very dry...but die hard sports fans don't need a lot of color...they just need for your pic to be correct...

    Sorry to disappoint you...I suppose I could start another thread with pics and color...if that is your wish...

    nfl_crop_340x234.jpg

    For you Verules, I'll add a bit of 'color'...

    Anyways..it's NFL game day...I'm sticking with all my pics...last week I think I got 7 correct and 4 incorrect...not good enough...about average...

    Funny thing is, the proffesional broadcasters and Sports commentators don't do much better...and all they do is study teams all week...wow...

    The worse thing that will sink you at picking winners and loosers is having 'bias' towards a team...having a favorite team bias, is good when your just rooting...but never let your bias towards a team effect whether they will win or not...that's the mistake most make...

    Picking winners and loosers has, or should have nothing to do with whether you like the team or not...

    And with that...I will sit back, listen to scores all day...and watch events unfold...I'm hoping I'll at least be at 70%...C grade...60% is a D grade...

    14 games...well one on Monday night...so for today anyways...I need to get at least 9 to 4 ratio...10/3 would be awesome...

    PIttsburgh_Steelers_helmet.gifVS...Tennessee.gif

    I change my mind on this game...for the record..I now say the Titans will win this game...why?

    Cause I just found out the Steelers will be playing with their 3rd string quarterback...and this will be only his 3rd pro start...icon_eek.gif

    Steelers qb Ben Roethlisberger is serving a 4 game suspencion...and Byron Leftwich, is still recovering from a knee injury...wow...

    I picked the Steelers only because of Ben...but I forgot about his suspension...and didn't realize they were playing with their 3rd string qb with only 3 pro starts...Titans win this one....

    Terrol Owens is now a Bengal...

    Cincinnati_Bengals__740374g.jpg

    I was wondering where he would wind up after Buffalo let him go...I personally think Buffalo wasted his time...they didn't even use him...never threw the ball to him...and later fired the head coach because of ineffective play calling...

    I think TO will bring some badly needed 'attitude' to the Bengals orginization and team...so octane...
    I use to drive through that city listening to sports channels...and the fans would call up after a loss and complain how their Bengals' lacked 'fire'....well now they got some in the form of Terrol Owens...use him, before he spoils...

    Also...look at all the guys reaching for his chest...I wonder if he's....nah...I'm just saying though..it's not like he has his shirt of for the women....

    Oh ye...they play the Ravens today...I picked the Ravens to win...we shall see...

    Thanks for sharing that...

    I'm not good enough to do the over unders and all yet...I first want to see if I can read teams, pic winners...If I can maintain a 70-80% winner tally...then...I'll step my game up...like you...

    I'll be watching your pics closely today...

    You do know that Roethlisberger is out on suspension, right? Who's their "proven" quarterback then?

    Also, you know the Titans are playing at home, and have beaten the Steelers in Nashville 7 out of 8 times. I think I'll go with the ESPN analysts on this one.

    Well, I was confused on that also. When the OP wrote "pics", I think he meant "picks", as in "pick the winners", not pics as in pictures. icon_confused.gif

    Yes, I have since changed my Steelers vs Titan pic...I changed it to the Titans winning...

    Because Ben H, is on a 4 game suspension...and Byron is injured...so the Steelers are going with their 3rd string quarterback who's only started 3 times in the NFL...so ye...Titans is the better choice...

    Steelers 7 Titans 0

    First quarter...games still young....

    Way to early to panic...but my first inclination was to go with the Steelers...then I changed it after finding out about the quarter back situation...we shall see..

    Michael Vick...

    MichaelVick-Eagles-1.jpg

    By now we all know the story...Atlanta Hawks, incredible quarter back...then dog fighting alligations...then prison...then Eagles last year...as like the 3rd string qb...then the Eagles trade Donavan McNabb to the Redskins...Eagles starting qb gets injured...and wamo!...just like that...Vick is a starter again...icon_eek.gif

    Someone in the sky above must like this guy...from prison to starting NFL qb in less than 2 years...boy if only my life could be so arranged...

    Anyhow...it is what it is...and he's prooving once again he has what it takes to play in the NFL...right now they're tied 7-7 against Detroit...

    Most people picked the Eagles to win this one...so did I...

    Vick threw a 45 yard touchdown pass...his 4th longest regular season pass yet...normally he's a scrambler...but maybe with age and time, he's learning to use his arms a bit more...we shall see...

    The NFL is upside down this week...

    Lot's of suprises...possible upsets...

    Let's start with the Browns vs Kansas...

    Cleveland_Browns_helmet.gif

    The Browns are actually leading this one...14-10 2nd quarter...what, suddenly the Browns can score??

    Another shocker..Bears vs Cowboys...Bears..ChicagoBears.gif.. lead 17-14...again...what is going on??

    Dallas, after all the pre-season hype...looks like they were indeed over hyped...Dallas, Romo...get your act together...there's no more excuses..

    And the Falcons..FalconsHelmet.gif.... are destroying the Cardinals...24-7...I picked the Cardinals to win this one...Oh my gosh...a lot of paridy this weekend...

    And the Bengals....162023.gif...lead the Ravens at half time 6-0...ok, what happened to that awesome Ravens defense that we saw last week against the Jets??

    And the Steelers....PIttsburgh_Steelers_helmet.gif...are beating the Titans...13-3...icon_eek.gif...ok what is going on...I should of stuck with my original pic...sometimes extra information can throw you off...

    In other words...seems this weekend...all the teams that were suppose to win are loosing...I mean even the Lions...Detroit+Lions+Helmet.gif... have managed to put up 17 points against the Eagles...they lead...17-14...we're talking the Lions here...

    Ok, I need a beer now...

    Don't mind facing the heat...I struck out bad...

    Steelers beat the Titans...19-11 I was wrong...(but originally picked the Steelers...lesson learned)

    Dolphins beat the Vikings...ok who saw this coming...Dolpins win..14-10

    Bears beat the Cowboys...27-20...'how bout them Cowboys!!'...

    Bengals beat the Ravens...15-10...icon_eek.gif

    Falcons clobbered Phenox 41-7...

    I was wrong on all those pics....sad0001.gif

    Oh...and even the Buccineers beat the Panthers...20-7....sad0001.gif

    Oh the shame of it...what have I learned this week?

    1. Go with your first instinct...the game is decided on the field...
    2. To much info can actually confuse you...keep it simple..pics that is...don't over think it..
    3. On any given Sunday...any team can beat any team...

    But this Sunday through a lot of people off, not just me, even the 'experts'...will be scratching their heads...
    Ok, I learned a valuble lesson today...

    Some of the ones I got right..

    helmet.jpg

    Eagles beat Lions...35 to 32...Vick came through for Philly...but the Eagles defense allowed the Lions to score 32 points...not good...

    35-69657-B.jpg

    Chiefs beat the Browns...16-14..this game had a lot of people sweating...ashamed.gif

    RRGrBayPackers-thumb.jpg

    Thank you Green Bay Packers for winning...thanks for not letting me, us, down...Green Bay beat the Bills 34-7...

    Paridy at it's best this Sunday...lot's of upsets...this will be an interesting season...

    Let's not even discuss the Cardinals shall we? I think Giants fans are thinking the same thing.

    I'm lmfao though about Minnesota and Dallas....everyone saying the Cowboys are gonna be the team...blah blah blah....they ALWAYS say they are going to be the team.

    Jets surprised me today, didn't know LT was on the squad and that guy can play....and kudos to Sanchez to have the confidence to throw the ball. Brady fell apart in the fourth....wha?

    Dolphins and Bucs 2-0......wha?

    The league is a tad upside down right now....

    Yes, this was upside down Sunday...

    I got 7 games correct...
    And 8 games wrong...

    If the Saints win tomorrow I will be at 50%....this week..

    Although I'm listening to JT the Brick and Tom Looney right now...and even they're shocked at some of the games...
    By the way, Tom Looney....thumbnail.aspx?q=230008623258&id=8994b17..... is really cool, kind of arogant, but really accepting of different people...we use to email back and forth...and I'd send him pics, and he'd comment on them...in a fun joking way...

    Anyhow...funny thing is is my randomn picks, are the ones that saved me...like Houstan over the Redskins...and Raiders vs Rams...I randomnly picked the Raiders to win..and they did...

    Oh well...I won't start next weeks pics till tomorrow...most have a better feel of the league now...the teams...their personalities...

    I did get the Manning vs Manning game right...I knew big brother ego wouldn't let younger brother undermine him...Payten Manning wasn't having that...icon_wink.gif

    Last game of the week...4th quarter...The Saints vs The 49's..

    new_orleans_saints_helmet.jpg

    The Saints lead this one 19-14...with about 6:00 remaining in the game...

    I'm impressed that San Francisco has put up 14 points and only trail by 5...

    If the Saints win...I will conclude this second NFL week with 50% of my pics being correct...not good...I'll start picking for game 3 tomorrow...

    I'm in a work enviornment right now so can't offer much analyst right now...

    UPdate...San Francisco now threatning to score they're at the 4 yard line....can they do it??

    Wow...are we looking at another great upset?
    We shall see...icon_neutral.gif

    The Saints have to win...if not I told this guy I would be his date on Friday night...and he said 'You will be my hamburger'...

    Please Saint's win...I don't want to date this guy...on Friday...he's to big to wrestle with...

    nfl-week3.jpg

    I will start my pics today...but won't do them all...as I'm in a working enviornment...
    I've been studying some of the matches...and this week will be even harder than last week...why?

    Because many teams will be playing for 'pride' this Sunday...to restore their teams good names...expecially the 0-2 teams...teams that are good, Like San Fransisco, but have yet to win...

    1. Let's start with Dallas vs Houstan Texans...

    This one is hard...what did I say earlier....'Dallas always wins when everyone expects them to loose, and they always loose...when everyone expects them to win..

    Well everyone is expecting Dallas to loose this game...the world has turned it's back on Dallas...jobs are at stake this week, head coach could get fired...Dallas is mad that the Houstan Texans are over shadowing them, stepping on their turf...but will that be enough...with Dallas, nothing makes sense...plus they are playing in Houstan...

    Games like this don't make sense...but games like this are how those who make money, make their money...so for the fun of it...I'm going with Dallas...
    If true to their flaky nature...they will win this one, cause everyone expects them to loose...Dallas pulls off a crazy victory...helmet2.gif

    Ok, one more for now..I'll go with an easy one...

    2. Buffalo Bills vs New England Patriots.....Patriots win..

    This one should be a sure thing...Patriots egos are bruised from loosing to the Jets last Sunday...they will take it out on the Bills...the poor Bills...

    All the rest of the games are hard...their like divisional rivalries...with divisional rivalries...you just never know...stats go out the window...and it's just whoever want's it more that day on the field...this is one of those weeks that you might fair better by just flipping a coin...coinflip.GIF...and allowing the coin toss to decide which team wins or looses...

    (by the way, I was just kidding about wagering a date with the big fat hamburger eating guy...but such a wager would be interesting...)

    Back for more pics soon...

    Here are mine for Week 3

    49ers -2.5 vs Chiefs...... 49ers have an amazing defense that will give KC big problems

    Lions +10.5 @ Vikings ......... Vikings will turn it around, Lions showed they arent gonna roll over and play dead, seems they actually believe they should be winning. MIN will probably pull this one off, but i think it will be closer than they think

    Patriots -13.5 vs. Bills...... One of the best in the league against one of the worst, easy pick

    New Orleans -4.5 vs. Falcons..... game of the week, almost impossible to top the Saints in the Superdome.... WHO-DAT Nation is crying TWO DAT in 2010! (so im a little bias on this one hahah)

    Titans -3 @ Giants....... Titan offense is as good as the Giants defense, I just think the Giants are still going to be hurting after Sunday nights embarrassment

    Steelers -2.5 @ Bucs..... Tampas has yet to play a "quality opponent" and with 2 QBs on the sidelines for PIT, they get lucky again. But luck wont be enough this week

    Bengals -3 @ Panthers......... Carson Palmer will light up the CAR defense this weekend, i mean really now... the panthers lost to TAMPA haha

    Ravens -10.5 vs Browns...... The Browns could surprise me here, but they wont win. Flacco rarely has 2 bad games in a row. and can teh CLE offense get past midfield against the BAL Defense who doesnt allow TDs

    Texans -3 vs Cowboys..... Balance of powers in Texas shift (again a little bias)

    Redskins -3.5 @ Rams.... Im thinking possible upset here... however, going with the safe bet until the Rams can show me they will protect Bradford better. When they do, they will start winning, until then.....

    Eagles -3 @ Jaguars....... Best matchup, eagles impressed me mroe this year, thats about it. If Vick were starting, it would have been easier, but kolb... hmmm

    Colts -6 @ Broncos....... Colts easily

    Cardinals -4 vs Raiders..... cards bounce back

    Chargers -6 @ Seahawks....... Seattle could win this, especially at home.... hmmmm, just cant see phillip rivers loosing this one...

    Jets +1.5 @ Dolphins....... I like the Dolphins but the Jets D is good and Mark Sanchez proved himself last weekend...

    Packers -3 @ Bears..... very surprised this isnt a bigger split, GB looks good, CHI wont be able to stop Rogers like the did Romo

    Steelers -2.5 @ Bucs..... Tampas has yet to play a "quality opponent" and with 2 QBs on the sidelines for PIT, they get lucky again. But luck wont be enough this week

    Bengals -3 @ Panthers......... Carson Palmer will light up the CAR defense this weekend, i mean really now... the panthers lost to TAMPA haha

    Ravens -10.5 vs Browns...... The Browns could surprise me here, but they wont win. Flacco rarely has 2 bad games in a row. and can teh CLE offense get past midfield against the BAL Defense who doesnt allow TDs

    Texans -3 vs Cowboys..... Balance of powers in Texas shift (again a little bias)

    Redskins -3.5 @ Rams.... Im thinking possible upset here... however, going with the safe bet until the Rams can show me they will protect Bradford better. When they do, they will start winning, until then.....

    Eagles -3 @ Jaguars....... Best matchup, eagles impressed me mroe this year, thats about it. If Vick were starting, it would have been easier, but kolb... hmmm

    Colts -6 @ Broncos....... Colts easily

    Cardinals -4 vs Raiders..... cards bounce back

    Chargers -6 @ Seahawks....... Seattle could win this, especially at home.... hmmmm, just cant see phillip rivers loosing this one...

    Jets +1.5 @ Dolphins....... I like the Dolphins but the Jets D is good and Mark Sanchez proved himself last weekend...

    Packers -3 @ Bears..... very surprised this isnt a bigger split, GB looks good, CHI wont be able to stop Rogers like the did Romo


    I like your pics...

    Some are so hard though...like Jets vs Dolphins...the Dolphins seem to have had the Jets number these last couple of years...
    And the Dolphins have been very quiet this year...almost unoticed...which tells me their 'focused' on winning and nothing else...And Bill Parcells has had a few years to tweak the franchise his way...
    Your probablly correct...but I'm going with the Dolphins on this one....Dolphins win...Jets loose, jump up and down and holler...

    You have awesome pics...and gave reasons behind each pic...lovely...

    Anyways...at work...will return later to finish...
