Football Update

Snooze Button Dreams is killing me in Fantasy Football this week. (Good luck on the interview, Jim.) The Raiders sucked again on Sunday. And Saturday, Cal outplayed USC and still lost. Very depressing.

Hey, at least the Niners beat the lowly Cardinals.

Regarding Monday Night Football, i need Chris Brown of the Titans to have a stellar game for my fantasy team. But i actually think that Green Bay will win this one. Green Bay is favored by three points and they're at home.

This is actually a pretty tough game to pick (i'm 2 and 2 on the year with my predictions). Both teams' quarterbacks are hurting, but how can you bet against a Favre led team on Monday Night? Although i also read that Green Bay's center is out, and the replacement is not as good. But i don't know if that's just bad or really bad. (i actually didn't even know what a nosetackle was until Casca told me. i thought nose tackle was when you hung a snap swivel off your nostril piercing.*)

The hardest question for me is, will the Packers cover the spread? i have a sense that the game might be close, but i know that as soon as i say the Packers won't cover, they will. That just seems to be my luck lately. So i'll pick the Packers minus three points.

Update: Chris Brown: 148 yards + 2 TDs. Will it be enough to overtake Snooze Button Dreams though? i'll find out tomorrow. Re: my MNF predictions this year, i don't want to talk about it.

* Ba-dum-bump. That's a little fishing humor for y'all.

Sunday was terrible with the Raiders but Monday nite have to go with the Titans over all physical and mean when they show up. Green Bay offense good but the defense to vanilla. Titans bye 10

Rough loss, annika, especially since it seems Jim isn't paying attention and didn't notice one of his players had a bye and two others didn't play. I lost, too...Philly's bye killed me.

And what really irks me is that i had a chance to trade Trent Green for Edgerrin James before the season started, but i turned it down because i didn't trust Edgerrin's knee. What a bonehead move that was.

Jeez, oh well. I'm counting on Brown tonight too, but all I need are 4 pts out of him. After watching the Pack against Indie, I couldn't pick them over anyone. That first quarter was one of the most stupid exhibitions of coaching EVER in the NFL. The Defensive Coordinator had to get burned FOUR times before he changed his gameplan.

Odd thing about your blog today and yesterday. When I open the main page, it's blank. I had to tool through your archives to get to this page. Just an FYI in case you hadn't heard.
