Eric: The Texans are the second best team in the league! Of course he looked bad, he’s our age! You try throwing anything when Brian Cushing is running at you full speed. I believe in you, Ryan.
Jeremy: Well we’ll have to wait for Sunday. Now this one will be fun, Kansas City at New Orleans. These have got to be the two most depressed fan bases in the league.
Eric: With one huge difference between them though. Nawwwleans started on top and have fallen so, so far. The Chiefs are always JUST on the cusp of winning something. Romeo Crennel is just the coach to rally a bunch of rascals against a floundering fallen power. I’m saying the Chiefs by 3, and the Saints fall to 0-3.
Jeremy: That would definitely be some sweet justice. Its like the football gods know the Saints screwed up, and are punishing them in ways Roger Goodell couldn’t. I’m hoping the Chiefs pull it out, but I’m still going with New Orleans solely on the fact that that they are playing at home and Drew Brees is still Drew Brees.
Eric: Depressing Game of The Week: Bills vs. Browns. While the Bills do have CJ Spiller, they’re still from Buffalo. And Cleveland is…Cleveland. I refuse to pick this one. I have enough problems.
Jeremy: I’m actually jumping on the Bills bandwagon a little bit. They’re the hipster New York football team; they live in a weird place, look pretty bad, and yet they kind of believe they’re better than everyone else. They’re kind of like a PBR, and their colors match too. And you know, C.J. Spiller is pretty good too.
Eric: I was just thinking about puppies to make myself feel better. So Bills it is. Lions and Titans are next. Did you know the Titans have the worst running attack in football? Do you think Ndamukong Suh knows that? Yes. Lions are winning this game.
Jeremy: Yea but the big question is Matthew Stafford. He’s been playing absolutely terrible, and it’ll be interesting to see how he does against this Titans defense. I’ve got the Lions too.
Jeremy: Next up; Jacksonville at Indianapolis. How about Andrew Luck last week, he looks like he could actually lead this pretty well this year. I’ve got him getting his second victory here this week against a poorly managed Jaguars team.
Eric: Agreed. The Jags have the weapons to put points on the board: MJD, Justin Blackmon, a 1/2 decent in YoGabbaGabbart. But they just can’t get it together. Colts by 10. Now onto Cincy vs. Washington, a really strange game here. Both teams put up big wins so far; RGIII’s coming out party in week 1, and Cincy last week, but are they really contenders?
Jeremy: I feel like one of them will sneak in, but these are the types of teams that still are a couple years away from seriously contending. I’ve got Cincinnati only because Washington’s defense will be seriously hampered after their numerous injuries last week.
Eric: True. I’d like to take a break here and see if we can rename the Washington team something less racist. GO;
Washington Branches of Government
Washington Pursuit of Happiness
Washington Violets Sponsored by NYU DC
Jeremy: I could go with that last one. JSex as the mascot would definitely be interesting…
Eric: Back to sports. Eagles vs. Cardinals in the afternoon. Both teams are SOMEHOW 2-0, despite their best efforts to be terrible.
I’m going with the Eagles. Korn on the Kolb is just too terrible, and the Eagles D are playing like they know what they’re doing (thanks Andy Reid from taking the reigns from Juan Castillo).
Jeremy: Yea, after picking against the Eagles last week, I learned my lesson, and am going with the Eagles too. But don’t count the Cardinals out, they’ve been playing hard this season. They’re win against the Patriots proves it.
Eric: Also, Beanie Wells has an awesome name. Falcons-Chargers, another 2-0 matchup. Who you got?
Jeremy: If the Niners are the best team in the league, the Falcons are right behind them. With all of the offensive weapons, and Matt Ryan playing the way he is, the Falcons clearly have the best offense in the league at this point. Falcons in a close one.
Eric: When you put “Phillip Rivers is” in Google the 1st four responses are “a jerk” “gay” “overrated” and “a douchebag.” The Internet has spoken. Also, the “gay” one refers to his stance against gay marriage and his love for Rick Santorum. Taking the Falcons here.
Jeremy: Quick picks for the last two afternoon games; I’ve got Houston over Denver and Pittsburgh over Oakland. You?
Eric: Same. Top 5 teams over Not Top 5 teams. Smart choices
Eric: Big Sunday Night game though. Patriots vs. Ravens. I’m taking the Ravens. The Pats have proven that they’re not all that good. That’s what you get for losing to the Cardinals, even if it is on a FG. Ravens take the W.
Jeremy: Yea but the same can be said for the Ravens, losing to the Eagles. The Pats offense just has to change now that Aaron Hernandez is out so that more of a focus is placed on Wes Welker. This one could go either way, but I’m going with the Pats. Until I see them lose another game, I think they’ve got to still be considered one of the top three teams in the NFL.
: Woah woah woah, the Ravens lost because the replacement refs are turrrrible. And Wes Welker wasn’t used for some mysterious reason, and the Pats play everything close to the chest. I bet Welker is actually hurt or pissed of the coaching staff or is trouble with the mob. But you can love Brady and Yo Soy Fiesta if you want, I’m going with the D lead by a guy who definitely killed someone
. Monday night game: Packers/Seahawks. Give me your pick in ten words or less.
Jeremy: Da Packas, simple as that. Oh yea, and Aaron Rodgers, Mr. Discount Double-Check.
Eric: Russell Wilson is Pacific Jesus, home field advantage! Pack lose again. To our one reader out there, please swipe Jeremy and I for lunch in Downstein sometime for all the really, really hard work we put into this . That would be nice. WOO SPORTS WOO!
Jeremy: WOO SPORTS WOO!
