    Side note- I wouldn't be shocked to see several underdogs win this week- Jets over NE, Detroit over Green Bay, Baltimore over KC. I was a coward though and didn't pick the dogs in those games. I did take Miami over Buffalo though!

    Green Bay is gonna be a weird one. What the hell is up with Rogers? Is he just mentally rounding into form after that messed up offseason?Is he pulling a Randy Moss and trying to poorly play his way into a trade? Does he actually not care and is just collecting a paycheck? Still, the Lions roster is bad enough to lose even with a messy game from Rogers.

    I wanted to pick Detroit as well, but I'm expecting Rodgers to be a lot sharper this week. So I don't know who to pick there....Lions played well last week, Rodgers didn't seem to really try. It's a trap either way.

    Here's what Rodgers said today to Pat. The 2nd video is the most insightful; on that first INT, he got punched in the nuts while throwing-

    IMO the Lions have a decent rushing attack (good OL and good RBs) but Goff is a non-factor in any deep passing, they have no WRs and their defense is horrendous. I've said it elsewhere, them post-Stafford trade are basically us after the Tunsil trade. San Fran ran up the score on them then went to sleep, and got SUPER unlucky as well (fumbles, onsides, etc). The final score was not indicative of the actual game. The Lions only shot is if Rogers is still mentally gone, GB gets demoralized by an early miscue and the Lions can lean on the running game. It's ... not a good shot.

    Can we edit prior to Thursday? Saints Covid outbreak … or are we locked in once posting ?

    I see where the Giants won't have Engram and might not have Barkley. I think that tomorrow night's game is going to be pretty ugly.

    So far, I don't see any active players that have tested positive. Those tests would have been today, but no information has leaked out yet. It's a roll of the dice on what the next few days will bring for them.

    They said on NFL Network last night that there could be more coming. But I haven't seen anything else yet either.

    I'd like to take Miami over Buffalo, but the pain is a bit less if Buffalo wins and the pick was right, versus not really caring that I picked wrong if Miami wins.

    LOL, then pick Miami! I can tell you now that I'm picking them 15 more times this season.

    But the bigger point for me is that right now, Miami has a better team than Buffalo. Maybe we won't be saying that at the end of the year, but I really do believe that this week our starting 22 are better than their starting 22.

    This. Is. Why. I usually suck at this and Fantasy Football and I don't gamble. I can't bet against the Phins or even remotely hope for the success of anyone playing against us.

    Point number two, this thread needs a sticky. Maybe two, one for picks and one for whining and crying and occasionally bragging about said picks.

    LOL, I already did a preseason preview with my picks for the year and said we'd start 4-0, then lose to Tampa in week 5. But I also said that we'd hang with Tampa and it would be closer than most expect. How close? LOL, I don't know....but I'm picking Miami if there's not money on the line, even though I expect the loss.

    Truthfully, I'm being 100% honest here...I think our defense is good enough to have us competitive in every single game this year. The games we lose will be a bad day for Tua, and that I can't predict. Maybe it's hurt linemen or receivers- I don't know. But we did just beat the Pats in Gillette with a backup rookie left tackle and two key receivers missing.

    This is a very good team folks and I honestly believe they're the safe bet in most weeks. Maybe not against Buffalo at home but still, we will lead that game at some point and it will be on the defense to step up and carry. I really do think it happens w/ cover zero being the talk of the day. We'll see in two days!

    Just one game baby. Were kicking some Raider *** this week. Those cocky Mo Fo's will be so full of themselves. Hard to get tix cause the price was $$$ but got the top level 1st row on the 20 yard line. I like the 1st row if you can get it.

    That's more like it. Are we going to list running standings/records each week? That would be fun.

    Yes. I'm going to work on that later. Maybe I can have Galant post that as a sticky at the top on a weekly basis for the winners and running totals that can just be updated week to week. Just a little busy to compile it all.
