2008 Season Week 9 Picks

Eagles/Seahawks: Historically, we don't do well heading west, but this is the Seahawks, for chrissakes. 2-5. In the NFC West. This should be a cakewalk. Which means it will probably be way closer than it should be. But I don't see how we lose - unless the entire team misses the plane. Eagles.

Jets/Bills: Bills. Who are going to enjoy picking off Vicodin Boy all the live-long day.

Lions/Bears: Bears. Also, ow. Also, picking up Dante Culpepper (rumored) will not help you, Lions. I'm pretty sure you need an exorcism at this point.

Jaguars/Bengals: Think this will be the week the Bengals finally win a game? Me, either. Jaguars.

Ravens/Browns: Ravens. Unless Derek Anderson, circa 2007, manages to show up.

Buccaneers/Chiefs: Buccaneers. Man, the games in this week's lineup (so far) are likely to be so lopsided, I can't even scrounge a reasonable upset pick.

Texans/Vikings. If I go with the Texans, does that count as an upset pick? No, I don't think so. Texans.

Cardinals/Rams: Rams. THIS is the upset pick. The Cards are leading the division, but the Rams have been looking WAY better under Haslett.

Packers/Titans: The is THE game to watch in the 1 pm time slot. Don't get me wrong - the Titans are TOTALLY going to win - but at least it's a matchup of two good teams.

Dolphins/Broncos: You know that whole "the Dolphins only beat good teams" thing? Dolphins.

Cowboys/Giants: Damn! Why is this game playing opposite ours? ARGH! I can't watch TWO GAMES AT THE SAME TIME! Thanks a LOT, NFL. Also, Giants.

Falcons/Raiders: Falcons. How do you fire your owner? Anyone who figures it out, call Tom Cable. Immediately.

Patriots/Colts: Patriots. In a game that's not going to be nearly as exciting as these matchups have been over the last several years.

Steelers/Redskins: As much as I want to call Steelers, they have NOT fared well against the NFC East this year. Redskins.

Edited to add: Bye week: Panthers, Saints, Chargers, 49ers. All but the first teams that need to do some serious soul-searching this week.
