Out of the Blue

There's good news for tackle football fans, as the NFL and the referees' union have reached a tentative deal, and tonight's game will be officiated by professionals, rather than the well-meaning but frightfully incompetent replacement refs. This might have impacted last week's outcomes if it had happened in time for those games, but either way, the number of crazy upsets make this an interesting season to have challenged folks to pick games. This is evidenced by Creston and Jivaro tying for best record for the week at 8-8 (imagine if we were using the point spread!), while Mag and I were 7-9, and Cutter followed two weeks of dominance with a disastrous 4-12. Here are my pre-caffeinated picks for this week: Ravens, Falcons, Patriots, Lions, Texans, Chiefs, 49ers, Seahawks, Cardinals, Broncos, Bengals, Packers, Bucs, Giants, Cowboys.

The Packers were the blood sacrifice necessary to make this happen. Bless you, Packers. And with the real refs officiating tonight, there goes any chance the Browns had at winning. (Sorry Browns fans!)

Nice that they created a foundation after receiving more money than they needed. Good to know there are still decent people out there....

I think against the spread I would have been 1-15...

Picks for this week:

Ravens, Falcons, Patriots, Vikings, Chiefs, Seahawks, 49'ers, Texans, Jaguars, Cardinals, Colts (Manning's got to win a game again at SOME point, right??), Packers, Buccaneers, Giants, Cowboys.
