Wow You Guys Suck: The Raiders, Not to beat a dead horse here, but holy shit the Raiders are terrible. 3 first downs the entire game? 3 first downs? Your QB gains more yards rushing on 2 attempts, than he does passing for the day. Runners Up: Dallas QBs are just awful, did I mention the Raiders suck.
This Scarecrow Needs a Brain: The Raiders, If being awful wasn't enough, the Raiders top it off with stupidity. See last week they introduced a new segment in practice, practicing touchdown celebrations. You know so they actually get to pretend to know what it feels like to score 6 points on a single play. Runners Up: Derek Anderson probably does not want to throw a screen pass to Terrell Suggs, Brett Favre probably wants to not throw any more Pick Sixes.
Cough Cough Cough: Kansas City Chiefs, Not like it really matters if the Chiefs win or not given their horrible record and 0% chance at the playoffs, but they certainly had the game in their hands this weekend and let it slip away. Runners Up: Thew Lions spit away their chance to get off the schnide, Cleveland lost their opportunity to reemerge as a playoff contender.
The Shocker: The Jaguars Aren't Good, I figured the Bengals would eventually win a game because well all NFL team eventually win. I just figured the Jaguars were eventually going to start rushing the ball like last year, and figured the Bengals were the perfect opponent to do so. Well, nevermind the Jags just aren't that good. Runners Up: I predicted 6 victories for the Dolphins which was favorable to most and they already have 4, the Falcons are currently 5-3 who knew.
The Pimp: Justin Tuck, Justin Tuck is an unstoppable force right now for the Giants. It doesn't matter that they lost Osi and Gap Tooth from last year because Tuck has emerged as one of the best defensive players in the entire NFL. Runners Up: Kurt Warner continues to throw for 300+ per game, Adrian Peterson had an under the radar beastly game.
You Got Jakked Up: Trent Edwards, Any time a 360 pound man lands his full body weight on you multiple times than you know you got jakked up.
My Fantasy MVP: Texas Quarter, Already been over this.
New York Jets MVP: Kris Jenkins, The man was an unstoppable force this weekend. 2 Sacks as well as stuffing Marshawn on almost every play. If he plays like that every week the Jets could emerge as the best rush defense in the league.
My Picks: 9-5
Preseason Picks: 8-6
Picks Vs. Spread: 8-6
Pick Suggestions: 3-2
Mediocre week but at least back on the positive side. The Lions covered yet again.
