So someone actually made a stat based on the ineptitude of Alex Smith, called Air Less EXpected, or ALEX. It tracks how far short or beyond a first down marker a QB throws on third downs. Amazing.

Also, I'll take the Ravens tomorrow night.

That is both a brilliant stat and an incredible chart. Finally, we can put a number on Small Hands' ineptitude!

 

It doesn't answer whether he's better than Kaepernick, though.

Drew Brees says he expects to play Sunday. Folks who picked the Saints to win, adjust your picks accordingly.

So I'm probably going to get banned soon for going off on a racist fuck in another thread. Hopefully I'll be back soon enough to make my picks for later in the week cause I don't have time right now.

For tonight I'm picking the Ravens.

If you're not back in time, just ask another member who you know through some other method to pass on the picks for you.

Or do what 99% of banned members do, and make an alt.

I have no faith in Vick being able to not turn the ball over.

I'm surprised at how many people think that Vick is going to fail. Here's my take on that, he did not like playing in NY, he had no interest in the team, and he did not try as a starter there because that team never had a chance to go anywhere. Now, here's the difference between that situation and this situation. He has an elite offense around him, and he likes where he is, he will be trying as a starter this time around and with Baltimore's lost defense, I think that he will be playing pretty well. The Steelers have Bell back, and they have quite possibly the best receivers in the NFL. Yes, their defense has been bad, and they have amateurs out there playing D back, but they have so many good pieces on offense I think they will eat clock, and they will win this against a lost cause Ravens team that I unfortunately thought would be a lot better than they are this year.

I'm not that down on Michael Vick himself, I just think the Steelers' offense itself is massively overrated. Outside of blowing up San Francisco (which Arizona did the next week), they haven't really put together a performance that's thoroughly impressed me. 21 points in New England (7 of those coming on a garbage time TD), and 12 points against the Rams. Now that offense is having its QB replaced too. So I'm not too high on Pittsburgh atm.

The Ravens, meanwhile, while they haven't won a game, have played possibly the toughest schedule in the league thus far, believe it or not. The three teams they've played have a combined record of 8-1, and each game has been very close. I don't expect them to turn their whole season around, but I think they've got enough to take advantage of a handicapped Pittsburgh team.



Thank you MTZ for adding reason to this Ravens confidence/Steelers doubt, I appreciate it! The game tonight's gonna be a fun one regardless, as Ravens/Steelers always is!
