    I was 11-5 last week as well. Different losses though.

    And that Titans lock pick looks dangerous. I’m picking Colts too, but I’m less confident than you.

    I was frightened by that and made a last second change to Arizona as my Loser Lock. I noted it above, but forgot to change it below.

    Hi Lester- well, I’m still alive in my survivor pool but things are getting tougher with only 20 teams left. I think Miami is a good pick this week, since NE hasn’t lost back to back games in 3 years. My other choices would be Baltimore, Arizona or someone from the Hou/Jax game. Let me know if you have any thoughts. I have already used Buf/NYJ/StL/Det/Tenn/KC/Oak/Wash/TB/Clev/SF/Seat as my other 12 losers. Thanks!

    Hi! I am still alive in my suicide pool as well. Have both PIttsburgh and Chicago left to use, what do you think? BTW, definitely think the Charger will take the Cavaliers!

    That’s funny. Hoops on the brain. The cavs could probably beat the browns.

    Ooh, I like both of those matchups. If Big Ben plays I’d probably be safe and go with them. If not maybe roll with Cutler

    I lied – went 12-4 last week. The blog I’m up against went 11-5.

    Also, I ended up choosing Titans to win. I can’t go against Vince Young and the Titans, even if they did probably use all of their magic up last week. So we’ll see. I’ve also got Jets, Bucs, Cowboys, and Ravens as winners, so you and I differ quite a bit this week actually.

    Show off. Just kidding. We do have differences. Should be an exciting football week.

    I can’t go VY over PM.

    I feel strong about New Orleans covering 9.5 against the Skins.

    Are you strong on this one?

    I’m with you Todd. Campbell probably won’t play. Should be a blood bath.
