Monday Night Football Pick

No posting this weekend, so i'm giving you my Monday Night Football pick early. The upcoming game is between the surprisingly sucky Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens, at Baltimore. According to USA Today, the oddsmakers have Baltimore favored by 4½ to 6 points.

After last weeks pick, i'm hesitant to go with the favorite again. (An SI.com poll says the Chiefs are the most likely 0-3 to bag a win this week.) But Kansas City's offense seems really disorganized this year,* and MNF or not, i don't see them solving their problems against the Baltimore defense.

i'd be comfortable picking Baltimore minus five points.

* Although, statistics-wise, Baltimore's doesn't seem much different, and their QB is even worse than Trent Green has been. But the Ravens appear to have a better run defense, which they'll certainly need against Priest Holmes, and a better pass defense.

Passion for the Raiders may cloud my judgement so hating the Chiefs and Ravens for good reason, umm go with the chiefs because the Ravens offense is not that good besides the running back.

remember great O versus great D cancels out sucky O.

I hope you had the VCR set, because Cal is crushing Oregon State in the first half. Clearly there is no concept of defense in the PAC-10. Beat the snot out of USC next week, and we'll go for a Cal vs Ohio State matchup in the BCS. The Trojans' feet are made of clay.

I think you're blocking, annika. How do you *really* feel?

Rested, I'm sure. At least you're on the left coast, when MNF starts at dinnertime and ends before bedtime. Try staying up on the right coast to watch your hometeam play when the game ends 4 1/2 hours before the alarm goes off.

If I want to watch the 'Skins play on Monday night, I take Tuesday off.
