UPDATE: WEEK TWO SURVIVOR POOL PICKS BELOW
We bounced back from a morose and reflective Saturday, courtesy of a nice bottle of a 2011 Dehlinger Zin/Petit Sirah blend and some good curry and nan.
Last week we joined the sad club of "first out" in the survivor pool when we picked da Bears at home over the resurgent Bills. We did score the most points in the Fantasy Football league, so it was a mixed day for us.
This week Fantasy-wise, it's a battle of the bloggers as we face off against DOM and his ridiculously weak team led by Tony "INT" Romo.
There are two big games today; games which, even on week two, will give us an insight as to who is real and who is not.
(UPDATE: WIN) The first is our own hometown Dolphins, coming off a big second half come-back win against the Cheaters at home, going to Buffalo to play the Bills who had a great week one win on the road against the Bears. To be a champion in the NFL, you need to win on the road, and protect your home. The Bills have shown they can win on the road, while the Fins protected their house last week from the evil genius and his cheaters. Which trend will hold this week? It will be a very good game to watch. Bills are -1 at home. We are not Fin-believers yet, although we should be: Buffalo 32-Dolphins 27.
(UPDATED:WIN) The second game which will reveal which team is for real is the Falcons at Cincy. The Bengals showed the type of defense that Marin Lewis, their head coach was famous for twenty years ago when he developed "Blitzbugh" for the Steelers as their D-coordinator. The Bengals are -4 at home, and while we like the Falcons, this could be the year the Bengals bury the Bungles. Plus, the Bengals are 8-0 at home in their last ocho. Cincy 24-Falcons 20.
(UPDATED: WIN) The Browns at +6 at home against the Saints. What did we tell you about these Browns? Way underrated, and just like we told you last week to take the Falcons in a shoot-out against the Saints, take these Brownies at home, with a great D, an underrated QB, and six juicy points.
(UPDATED: LOSS) Lions-Panthers- Over 43. Duh.
(UPDATED: LOSS) The wheel is off the stagecoach in Big D, as the Cowpokes are exposed for being nothing more than a below mediocre team playing in the greatest stadium in the world. Tony Romo will never win a Super Bowl, and he may not ever get to take his pokes to the playoffs ever again. That ship has sailed. The train is off the tracks. Circle the wagons, pick whatever aphorism you like, and take the Titans at home -1.
Chief at Broncos- under 52.
