I am already off to a stellar start this season because I took the Giants at -3.5 on Wednesday night. There is nothing like starting the season 0-1. Click through the jump to see the rest of my week 1 picks.
(Picks in bold)
There are a lot of people really high on the Bears this season. I am not one of them. Jay Cutler will continue to be a mediocre quarterback.
The Browns are not going to be very good, and the Eagles are going to be on a mission after letting Vince Young wreck their season last year.
The Rams are going to be terrible, and it is going to be fun to watch (yes that is two bitter Titan fan references in a row).
I think the Titans lose by 7.
The Chiefs are a big sleeper team this year, but you can't stop Julio.
I guess the Vikes are favored because they are at home, but I don't see how they are going to be much better than last season. The Jags were a little bit better than they were given credit for last season.
The city of New Orleans has a lot to rally around for this game. The Super Dome will be rocking. That is going to make for a tough debut for Robert Griffin III.
I really don't understand why the Jets are favored here.
This game is my survival pick for this week. Even with Arian Foster a question mark, the Dolphins don't have much of a chance in this one.
The 49ers played a little bit over their heads last year. They are still going to win their division, but they are not in the same class as the Packers.
Panthers -2.5 @ Buccaneers
I hate Cam Newton.
Here is another line I don't understand. The Seahawks are clearly the better team here.
I hate Peyton Manning.
Neither of these teams are going to be as good as they were last year. This is a tough game to pick, but it is going to be really close.
This should be a good game as well. I think the Chargers are going to end up being better than people think.
