Week 7 - Sports Staff
Big Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers will do both the Bears and Packers a favor this week, as they beat the undefeated Minnesota Vikings. While New Orleans continues its hot streak and becomes the only team in the NFC to be undefeated.
Mark Sanchez will bounce back on national television after finally looking like a rookie in Week 5. The Jets' swarming defense will be too much for Miami and the wildcat.
True Life: I followed up going 12-2 two weeks ago by going 8-6 last week. I'm ashamed. But it's alright. Another day, another dollar...Minnesota's winning will come to an end when put up against Pittsburgh. a loss has to happen eventually or else I will feel like an idiot for writing a column saying Brett Favre should retire. Chicago will recover from last week's game and come out with a victory over the Bengals. As always, if you're an NFL quarterback who has the last name 'Manning' and you also have a brother who is an NFL quarterback, then I pick your team to win.
Shouldn't pro football players know that being offsides is a bad thing? Well apparently certain Chicago Bears players don't understand that concept, and I'm hoping (for the sake of my picks) that it will be solved in week seven. The Bears desperately need a W, and hopefully Cutler and company can get the job done against the Cincinnati.
The only reason I'm picking Philadelphia is because Washington is probably the second worst team in the leauge. Normally I would never pick a team a week after losing to Oakland, but I think my high school football team would have a shot at taking down Washington.
Ahh that Bills pick last week looks really good. Thanks to a certain Harvard graduate. I am taking way too many road teams this week. New Orleans proved they are legit by dismantling the Giants and Arizona has finally hit their stride. Minnesota finally goes down this week after getting luck 2 weeks in a row. How could anyone pick Washinton on Monday night after the head coach has no say in the play calling. Sorry Dan Snyder but Jim Zorn is not Joe Paterno.
The Bengals' Cinderella story will continue with an impressive win over the Bears in Cincinnati and Pittsburgh will show the NFL they are still a force to be reckoned with by handing the Vikes their first loss of the season.
