Hangover Saturday - Rexy sure is Sexy

Sitting here knee deep in Smoke’s Poutine and beer pong cups, I should probably be more concerned about being the cause of the contagion outbreak then picking football games, but such is life. Last week I went 8-7, which isn’t the greatest but there were some games that were as predictable as Charlie Sheens next coke binge. Between Sexy Rexy, the Bills, and Cinncy doing the impossible, it was tough to hold onto an above 500 record. There aren’t nearly as many big time games this week, but football is football so let’s get to it.

Chi @ NO

Chicago proved me wrong last week but I’m still not a believer that they can actually contend with the big boys. Their defense turned back the clock last week and Brian Urlacher looked like the beast from 5 years ago. New Orleans looked good in a losing effort and won’t let themselves go to 0-2. New Orleans is the desperate team so I got them winning, but if Chicago pulls off another strong defensive effort I’ll have to seriously re-evaluate my opinion on them.

Phi @ Atl

The Sunday night game is probably the biggest game of the week. Besides the whole Vick storyline this is actually setting up to be a very good game. Atlanta is coming off a surprising loss and Philly looked pedestrian in their win over the Rams. Phillys linebackers are going to have a tough time containing Turner (They let Cadillac look good) but Matty Ice didn’t fair well against the Bears and the Eagles secondary could have a field day against them. Look for Vick to put up stupid numbers and Atlanta falls to a surprising 0-2.

Now for the other games,

Oak @ Buff – Two of the worst places to live face off in the battle of the players who wished they played somewhere else. Oakland wins this barnburner.

GB @ Car – Green Bay, don’t need to say much more

KC @ Det – Jamal Charles needs to have a huge bounce back game (he better not be a fantasy bust), but Detroit looks like they’re the real deal. Detroit wins at home.

Cle @ Ind – The Colts are actually fucked. Cleveland wins

TB @ Min – McNabb almost threw his age in passing yards… The Vikings may be in as shitty a spot as the Colts, and they have their starting QB. I got Tampa.

Jac @ NYJ – Jets win this thriller

Sea @ Pitt – Pittsburgh got embarrassed last week, here’s hoping Mr Rooney took Big Ben to a couple VIP booths and let him “go to the bathroom.” Steelers win

Bal @ Tenn – The Ravens proved me oh so wrong last week and I think they’re a legit contender. They’ll embarrass the Titans, and Chris Johnson fantasy owners are going to start shopping him harder then OJ Simpson at a memorabilia store

Ari @ Wash – I’m starting to get real lazy and am realizing how bad this weeks games actually are. Arizona wins and Sexy Rexy looks slightly less Sexy.

Dal @ SF – Tony Romo was vintage Sunday night, but  the 49ers aren’t good. San Fran losses (I can’t pick Dallas to win).

Cin @ Den – Denver fans are the dumbest fans in the history of sport. Lucky for them their team gets to play the Bengals, who even though they managed to win, are fucking awful. Denver wins

Hou @ Mia – Miami showed a lot of promise Monday night but they’re secondary looked like a high school junior football team. Arian Foster is back and Houston looks like a team on a mission, Texans win.

SD @ NE – As good as New England looked on Monday, their defense made Chad Henne look good. The Chargers looked good considering they were forced to go for it on multiple 4th and long opportunities after their kicker got hurt doing nothing. I think the Chargers pull this off and Rivers takes his first step to his MVP year.

Stl @ NYG – St Louis is real banged up, and the Giants have something to prove after getting sexified by the Skins. The Giants win this won and turn their season around.

Sorry about the lazy post, but this weeks games aren’t the most inspiring and I think I can actually see bacteria growing around me.
