It's definitely because of the top Raiders countdown on the NFL Network on in the background because I am not picking them as a favorite and most likely wont this season. They showed they can dominate a game, it was beautiful. The Raiders haven't won back to back games in 23 games, they haven't been 500 in a couple of years, they have a great opportunity to achieve both of these things and we'll find out if they are contenders. Ya, all road dogs, thats college you stay away from road dogs. These are professionals, they are suppose to be ready for the crowd noise and play smart football. Anyone hear about Favre's injury? Unplug from the hype machine, its football day.
The Dallas Cowboy's season has been proclaimed over, their star quarterback out for at least a couple of months. Already off to a terrible start their hopes turn to Jon Kitna, a talented defense and the running game. The last reason, the under looks good, and the spread looks great. Dallas might win, this game will be close, both teams can and will establish a running game and keep the score low. Kitna has been in the league 14 years you don't stay around that long and not be able to carry a team with a solid running game and defense, don't count the Cowboys out yet. Cowboys by a field goal.
San Fransisco fans are too occupied with the Giants to comprehend how over rated their team was this year. At quarterback, the defense and firing the offense coordinator all symptoms of a team exp[ecting too much. Luckily for the 49ers the fans are distracted by the World Series, I can sympathize and would mind if one of my teams suffered through a terrible season if my other team got a chance for a world title. Denver has a lot to prove after a disastrous loss last week.
Rodgers and a proven Green Bay offense against a star defense and offense but a young quarterback who might be thinking too high of himself and needs a snap back to reality, like the Packers. This is must watch football and way closer than 6 points. Next pick please!
The Chargers come in against the Titans ranked 1st in passing yards, 1st in opponents passing yards and 4th in opponents rushing yards. The only stat not in the the top five is, rushing yards. The Chargers are tied for last with the Broncos and their stats are refletive of a team who makes timely mistakes and throws the ball way too much. Yes a talented quarterback, but throwing more than needed will get you picked and turnovers loose games more than anything else.
Tampa Bay head coach, Raheem Morris, claimed his squad is the best in the league. Confidence, the odds makers don't feel the same. But remember their goal is to induce action, can you resists the points? Trendy pick, maybe. Who quarterbacks for the Cardinals, exactly.
2010 NFL SEASON RECORD: 22-17-3
