    Nice to see you have confidence in my boys, lol. But, I don’t blame you — I would probably pick them to lose too, Arizona is really good, and Carolina is really bad.

    Yeah, in the 8th week with six teams on bye and most of the scrubs spoken for, they left me little choice.

    Ok …. I’ve been needling you about your Bengal picks – but hey – you got the last game right … and picked Palmer over Cutler. Wow … big-time performance on many fronts.

    Just want you to know that you haven’t been seeing me around as much because work is cutting into my reading time … and will get into my writing time soon. Needless to say, I miss may frequent visits here.

    I’m afraid the secret is out Frank. The Bengals are good.

    Hey, you’re fortunate to be busy at work. That’s where you’re needed. I appreciate any time you do stop over and I enjoy visiting your site as well.

    Lester I Have a question.
    Your picks only select the winner, but why do you think about this:

    1. Colts over 49ers for 13 points?
    2. Chargers over raiders for 17 points?
    3. Saints over Falcons for 10 points?

    2 TDs seems like a lot for the Colts to cover, but they should be able to do that at home. 17 over the Raiders just begs you to take Oakland, but I think I lay the points and go with San Diego there. I’d take the points and roll with Atlanta.

    Thanks,
    I just add your website to my favorites.
    I like the NFL and I also bet some money every week to make the thing more interesting.

    Thanks. If you like fantasy, check out FanDuel.com. They have a pretty cool weekly game you might enjoy.

    Not sure if you can access it or not, but here is our Yahoo pickem league. It’s for fun, and against the spread. I’m currently tied for 5th at 58-44. It’s a lot tougher picking against the spread, as I’m sure you know. If you want to join for fun, let me know and I can send you a link.

    You don’t include a spread to determine a win or loss…Anyoene can call a winner…3 times out of 4…call em like a man or don;t call em at all

    ffballz – I don’t do that here because my network frowns upon that sort of thing. That said,

    Hey Lesters Legends, what do you think about this pick.

    1. Arizona Over Carolina for 10 Points
    2. Green Bay vs. Minnesota – Over 47 Points

    To me that ten over Carolina may be a little high. Their strength has been stopping the pass so it could be tough for arizona to march up and down the field.

    I would lean towards the over in the Favre Bowl Part II. That should be a fierce shootout.

    let me know if you want to get in the pick ‘em game at yahoo and you can join in. it’s against the spread there.

    Hey Lester! Whats your thoughts on this.

    1. San Diego vs. Oakland Raiders – Under 42

    2. Chicago vs. Cleveland – Under 40

    3. Tennessee vs. Jacksonville – Under 45

    Appreciate your thoughts!

    SD-OAK that’s tough. I don’t see Oakland scoring much, but the Chargers should be in the 30s, which should put them over.
    2. Chi-Cle under 40. i’d buy that
    3. TEN-JAX – I think that may be over.
