I'm playing it extremely safe this week. I picked the difference in points in the Oakland game to be 17 last week. Pretty damn close as it was 18.

Although I picked Jaguars to lose because they play Titans @ Titans, my gut is telling me the Jaguars can get their first win.[snip]

In case you see this in the next three hours or so, the JAX/TEN game is in JAX. My bad on the template. Don't know if it will alter your prediction or not but thought I'd make sure you're aware.

FFS MTZ! YES. That would have definitely changed my vote. I'm in Dubai so I can usually only catch Early Sunday games at my time. Couldn't see this message in time. I genuinely would have switched my call. But I don't want to open the door for anyone else to demand flipping votes. I'll take the L but it's your fault ;P. Just please, don't make that mistake again.

That being said... GODDAMMIT! I should have listened to my gut.

I was picking home team after home team, but then at the end Rams vs. Browns came up.

I think there's a mistake on the template because Titans vs. Jaguars is played in Jacksonville. I pick the Titans anyway.

EDIT: Stupid VGC feature. Apparently there is a registered user by the name of browns.

Again, I wish I would have seen this message in time to change my vote.

Maybe I've been away too long, but I'm confused how that influences our votes.

Although I picked Jaguars to lose because they play Titans @ Titans, my gut is telling me the Jaguars can get their first win. Did they officially bench/injured Newton? The Dolphins have given up 102 points in just 2 games. I never liked the Dolphins and I wish them the worst... but Jesus, have they no dignity at all? The Jets have no defense and lost to a Browns team that have a quarterback being crushed by the weight of his own expectations. So the 'Just End The Suffering' are no better than the Fins or the Bengals for that matter. Speaking of the Browns, this week will be the true tell if they are a legit team. I don't expect them to beat the Rams, but if they hold their own and compete, then we have ourselves an exciting Browns team this year. If Baker finally gets out of his funk, I expect this to be a fantastic shootout game. If anyone wants a potentially exciting game to watch this week. This is it.

I'm gonna go pick again for week 3 as I think I skipped a game choice and never went back to it

In case you see this in the next three hours or so, the JAX/TEN game is in JAX. My bad on the template. Don't know if it will alter your prediction or not but thought I'd make sure you're aware.

How is AB doing for you? I told you that clown was a waste of time and resource.



Mia (+22) vs Dal - Take Dallas
NYJ (+21) vs NE - Take New England
AZ (-2) vs Car - Take the cardinals
Houston (+3) vs LAC - Take Houston
Saints (+4.5) vs Seattle - Take Seattle
Rams(-3.5) vs Browns - Take Rams

There you guys go. If you want to become a millionaire bet on the teams above.

3 and 3 with my picks. I would've never thought the Panthers would beat the cardinals like that. The New England Patriots should've covered that spread.

Not quite sure what point you're trying to make. Sucks that he didn't work out, obviously, but we didn't lose anything in bringing him in so it's a wash. We didn't really spend any resources bringing him in (zero cap hit, won't get anything besides his one game check), so it's not like it hurt the team somehow.

It didn't hurt the team? It caused drama and wasted your time and money regardless of how little it was.



AB is a tool, and I hope he never gets another job. Having said that, the experiment wasn't exactly damaging to the Pats. Not sure why it is being made out otherwise.



Cowboys receivers are not getting open. If we were playing a DECENT team, we would've been blown out already.



So was I the only one to pick the Lions this week? I'm pretty sure I'm 8-0 is the early games.

I got the Lions and Bills game both wrong. Cincinnati is worse than I had originally thought.
