    A win wouldn’t be as sweet and a loss not as devastating.

    I see STL is going to have a tough week playing two games. I just hope that they are at different times.

    The only picks I differ with you are New Orleans (San Diego- I can’t trust ‘em…not that the Saints inspire confidence, either), and Tennessee (I think Indy’s rush D isn’t up to snuff, quite frankly).

    I’m not too confident in my Seattle/San Fran pick- Seneca Wallace returns at QB, and San Fran just fired their coach…how will that translate on the field?

    Lotta good ones this week! Go Falcons!

    NO w/o Bush could be trouble, especially if the weather is bad. INDY is a hunch. Mike will inspire them.

    Hey Ryan, I’m just curious why you decided to pick the Steelers over the Giants? It’s definitely the game of the week and should be extremely close, but I think I’m going to go with the G-Men myself. Plax certainly is going to have motivation to prove himself against the team that let him walk and the Giants are going to want to prove that they aren’t 5-1 only because of their schedule.

    Junior – Just a hunch. There are upsets every week. This is my upset special of the week. Tenn won’t go undefeated. Indy can’t afford to lose again.

    Lester, do you take the spread into consideration with your predictions, or just going on win / lose

    I just do win or lose. is a good source for picks vs. the spread.

    Why would you pick the panthers over the cardinals?

    This was for 2008 and I got that pick right. Odd they play each other in the same week in 2009. I’m picking Arizona to win this year. The picks will come out tomorrow.
