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.

I feel bad for the Browns. They seem to be an actual decent team this year, they just can't pull it off (Eagles/Ravens/etc). Put up a good fight every time.

They play in the toughest division IMO. Every single team has a Top 10 defense. Hell, last year I think all 4 teams were in the top 5 at one point. The only reason Baltimore and Pittsburgh keep taking the division every year is because they have enough firepower on offense to come from behind in a hurry late in a game. If Cincy and Cleveland can mature their young offenses to be that stable and explosive that division would get whole lot less predictable. They have the talent, IMO, but they are young ATM.
