I thought I'd start a thread about the upcoming NFL weekends and we pick every games' winner. I think it'd be fun for us to start a whole discussion/pick/review thread. So I'll start us off with my picks for WEEK 3.
Saints @ Broncos-Broncos, Cutler's throwing beautiful passes and the team's starting to mesh really well
Chiefs @ Falcons-Falcons, yeah...the Chiefs are just...the Chiefs are...from Kansas City and that's as interesting as they get.
Raiders @ Bills-Bills, this used to be an interesting game to watch but the Bills have made some amazing progress and Edwards is throwing some damn good passes.
Bucs @ Bears-Bears, bring Garcia back, you know it's the right thing, he lost in N.O 24-20 and he didn't take a single snap in the preseason.
Texans@Titans-Titans, the Texans are horrible and I think Collins has been playing well.
Panthers@ Vikings-Vikings, I think the Vikings know they have to win this game or else they'd be digging themselves in a hole that'd be too deep to climb out of, Jackson isn't starting.
Dolphins @ Patriots-Patriots, Miami's still got a lot of work ahead of them.
Bengals @ Giants-Giants, last years' super bowl champions are still moved by the motivation from being overlooked, once again.
Cardinals @ Redskins-Redskins, two subpar teams but I see the 'skins using last week's victory over the Saints as momentum.
Lions @ Niners-Niners, just because they're playing the Lions.
Rams @ Seahawks-Seahawks
Steelers @ Eagles-Eagles, easily the best game on Sunday, with two of the best in the league, it'll be a high scoring affair relatively close to what we saw on Monday night.
Jaguars @ Colts-Colts, after shaking off Week 1's disastrous performance at home against the Bears, Peyton's getting back to being himself. My poor Jags, we need an offensive line and a key/play maker receiver.
Browns @ Ravens-Ravens, I don't think Cleveland's THAT bad I just don't think they're above average. Though, they've played 2 of the best at home.
Cowboys @ Packers-Cowboys, God I hope the Packers but I think the experience of the Cowboys and coming off of a huge win is going to make them undeniable at least for this game. It'll be a very good one.
Monday Night Football.
Jets @ Chargers- Chargers, they had a very good game against the Panthers and in Denver well, you know.

Nah, brother, I never ran across the thread. I don't necessarily want to compete for anything. I still think it'd be fun if we came aross this thread and make some picks, I don't know.
forgot the saints @ denver game don't worry, broncos will take it.
You get out what you put in.
^Thanks, bro. They definately will.
Falcons. Thigpen at QB? Nuff said.
Bills. Raiders just suck, bills are riding high.
Bears. I don't think the bucs can win with Griese.
Texans. Kerry Collins won't be able to do much.
Panthers. Gus Frerotte is not the answer.
Patriots. Miami is still a bottom of the barrel team.
Giants. The champs will keep it alive, and Eli manning will light up the Bengals non-existant D.
Redskins. I kinda think that these two teams are average, out of all games this is a toss-up. But the Redskins should be able to run the ball.
Niners. The Lions are just...the Lions.
Seahawks. Bounce-back game, wr's starting to get healthy.
Eagles. My favorite team (even though I'm form CA), so I'm biased. But no Big Ben for Pittsburgh, and the Eagles should be getting Kevin Curtis and/or Reggie Brown back.
Colts, despite Bob Sanders being out. Peyton Manning is returning to form.
Browns. They'll finally break through against a poor Ravens offense.
Cowboys. Aaron Rodgers won't play so well this game.
Chargers. Two heart-breaking losses, but they still may be the class of the AFC.

I said the Panthers are the NFC sleeper but damn I can't see the Vikings going down to 0-3 at home. You're going to be right on the Cleveland/Baltimore game I believe now that I actually put some thought into it.
My picks are...
Broncos-Cutler is lookin amazing.
Bills-Raiders have potential,and Mcfadden is a stud.But Buffalo is a 10-6 team in my opinion
Bears-Barely.It will be close
Titans-A slightly better team
Giants-Eli will have a big day
Cardinals-Im not sold on the skins.Cardinals are not that bad.
Niners-lions suck,and Niners are a 500 team
Seahawks-Just because they are playing the worst team in the league
Eagles -Big Ben has a bad shoulder and Philly is firing on all cylinders.Look for Westbrook to have a big day.
Colts-Getting better every week.
Browns-This could be their turnaround week.They are hungry.
Cowboys-Will be a close one the first half.But I think Dallas will be too much for them in the stretch
Chargers-Could be the game of the week.
I can't wait to watch LT piss and moan when they start out 0-3
I went 9-6 yesterday.Lot of close ones.And the Miami game was unreal
I dont think any excuses can be made, that was an ass kicking from the get-go. Brady may have been able to turn it into a shootout, but the defense didnt stop Brown all day.
Bucs game was crazy, Greise was awful most of the second half then brought em back
