Wow You Guys Suck: St. Louis Rams, Philadelphia is a talented team and a tough place to play but losing 38-3 is really really poor. The only benefit of the weekend for the Rams is that the Seahawks also lost and their division is going to be awful this year. Runners Up: JT O'Sullivan had lots of turnovers, Detroit Lions defense.
This Scarecrow Needs a Brain: Matt Millen, Seriously this man needs to be fired. They're facing a team with a rookie quarterback, a new running back and new coach. You traded your best defensive lineman in the off season. And your team goes out and gives up 300 yards on the ground and allows a 62 yard td on the rookie's first pass. That's some good work by the D. Runners Up: Vince Young for just not showing up in the huddle one drive, the Vikings for thinking Tarvaris is a Superbowl QB.
Cough Cough Cough: Cincinatti Bengals, If you want to be a playoff team you need to beat a rookie quarterback in his first start. Instead the Bengals went out to Baltimore and couldn't get a single thing done on offense even though the Ravens were missing arguably the best safety in the league in Ed Reed. Piss poor by Cincy. Runners Up: San Diego giving up a last second td, .
The Shocker: Carolina Panthers, They don't have their best offensive player, they are playing on the road against an AFC powerhouse, their qb is coming off Tommy John surgery and they pull off a last second victory. Who the hell saw that coming? Runners Up: The Bears knocking off Indy, Two Rookie QBs winning their first start.
The Pimp: Michael Turner, Apparently getting your first start in the NFL after sitting behind the best running back in the league for years is motivating. After one week as a starting running back Michael Turner is already over 1/5 of the way to a 1000 yard season. Runners Up: Everyone on the Eagles, Eddie Royal who had a diesel first start
You Got JAKKED UP: Tom Brady's Knee, Goodbye Mr. Left ACL.
My Fantasy Anti-MVP: St. Louis Rams, It probably should be me for deciding that I wanted to base my fantasy success on the Rams. But whatever why Bulger, Stephen Jackson and Tory Holt can't put up a single god damn touchdown is beyond me.
New York Jets MVP: Thomas Jones, He equalled his 2007 touchdown total, which means he scored a single touchdown. He played well he helped control the ball for the Jets and would have had the game sealing first down if not for a Damien Woody false start.
My Picks: 12-4
Preseason Picks: 12-4
Picks Vs. Spread: 10-6
Not a bad week if I say so myself. Who had the Colts and Chargers losing. Or the Falcons and Ravens winning? Probably not many considering 12-4 sits at 99.2% on ESPN.
