Monday Night Football Pick

As a Raider fan (which is tough to be this year), i hate having to pick Denver for tonight's Broncos vs. Bengals game. i'm looking for a way to justify not doing it.

The Broncos are playing in Cincinnati, and are favored by seven points on the road. They have a five and one record, as opposed to the Bengals' one and four record. Jake Plummer's been decent, with ten touchdowns and an 87.4 rating.

Contrast that with Carson Palmer's stats: four TDs against eight interceptions, with a 59.6 rating. He sucks. But you should already know that, since he went to USC.

So, basically, there is no good reason for me to pick the Bengals tonight. But i will anyway, and hope that Denver wins by less than seven points.

Update: Cincinnati actually created the ilusion of a good team tonight, i was surprised. With tonight's Bengals win, i improved my record to 3 and 3 on the year. (Last week was my bye week, due to the computer glich.)

Carson Palmer, wasn't he in a boy band?

Twilight Zone for sports this year for me,Raiders,Roy Jones, Lakers losing, Yankees not in the world series but not really surpised since I had concerns about the pitching all year,so in saying all of that no doubt Denver would win bye more that 10 points.

I could stand the Broncos losing tonight if Plummer scores me enough points to win my FF matchup. But to lose both? Oh, man, did I pick the wrong year to stop drinking...

Leave it to the Bengals to be unpredictable.

Sorry Annika. The Broncos just don't have it this year. (Or, pretty much since Elway left) There's always room here on the Patriots bench for you though.

Boy was I wrong on the Monday nite game and that is what you get for picking Denver being a Raider fan.

"He sucks."

It took Palmer less than a year to prove you a fool.
