This is probably not something you want to use as a gambling or fantasy cheat sheet. I go through all the games and I pick winners with stupid little comments about what players I expect to have big games. I don't have Sunday Ticket anymore. The guesswork involved in this season will be monumentally unfocused. I will not pretend that I know what I'm talking about. Also, it may seem a little disjointed but I'm going to put up my season predictions tomorrow, after the first game has been played. Scheduling conflicts have kept me from having that shit taken care of before now. Onward and downward. The highlighted team wins the game.
THU, SEP 9
Minnesota at New Orleans - You know who's a good player? Marques Colston. Play him. Play Drew Brees. Play Purple Jesus of Fumbles. This should be a fun game to watch. I fully expect things to start unraveling for the Vikings sometime in the second half of this game. Fuck up early and often this year.
SUN, SEP 12
Carolina at NY Giants - The Panthers are a mess. This is the first real game in this new stadium. The Giants will find a way to destroy Carolina. Definitely play Bradshaw and Jacobs, probably play Eli and Steve Smith. One of Carolina's runners will be good.
Atlanta at Pittsburgh - Dennis Dixon is starting for the Steelers. They are doomed. Matt Ryan will probably have shitty numbers here but Michael Tuner might get some burn going. Start Tony Gonzalez.
Cleveland at Tampa Bay - Cleveland will run for 400 yds as a team to beat out the Bucs 300 yds on the ground. Start all the RBs.
Denver at Jacksonville - If I were to bet on such things I would have major $$$ on a bet that Tebow will get real playing time in his hometown, Other than that I'd start whoever it is that plays running back in Denver these days.
Indianapolis at Houston - Start every offensive player you've got for this one.
Miami at Buffalo - Start whatever unfortunate sot you've got for the Dolphins.
Detroit at Chicago - Horrible for every one witnesing it.
Oakland at Tennessee - 2 wrongs don't make it right, you?
Cincinnati at New England - New look Bengals!
Arizona at St. Louis - I've got an important meeting with my pillow coming out. Arizona will be terrible all year.
San Francisco at Seattle - Deon Butler will be the surprise WR for this whole year unless Golden Tate takes it over,
Green Bay at Philadelphia - Philly enters a brand new world with him PPV and no more McNabb.
Dallas at Washington - Who cares
MON, SEP 13
Baltimore at NY Jets - Baltimore will look good winning this one.
San Diego at Kansas City - Double ugh.
That's all for tonight.
