Incredibly, we lost our entire post, so we have to do it again.
First, as we watch the start of the NFL season and the Fins, we cannot help but think of our friend George Cholakis. George was a great prosecutor, and then became a well-respected criminal defense attorney. He was active in his church, and a friend to many. And if you knew George, you knew that he lived for the NFL season and Dolphin home games. George died as he lived: at a Dolphins home game last year doing what he loved most. We don't remember the outcome, but the day was a big loss. So here's to you George. We are sure your tailgating pals have lifted a few to your memory today, as we have.
Here are the picks. Blog fav and retired Judge Jon Colby is out this year on Injured Reserve. We wish him well and look forward to his return next year.
Ravens -7 at home over the Bills (WIN)
Titans -1 on the road over the Fins. (LOSS)
Packers -7 over da Bears (LOSS)
Cardinals -2 at home over the Skins (LOSS)
Jags on the road over the Gints. Not this week Saquon, not this week against this D. (WIN)
Broncos at home -3 over Seahawks (PUSH)
Long time and careful blog readers know that in the early weeks the defense dominates.
Steelers/Browns under 41(LOSS BY 1)
Rams at Raiders under 49.
Chiefs at Chargers under 49 (LOSS)
Follow our league live here. See how your favourite judges match up against defense attorneys. Can our first female player -our own Millennial Me make a dent?
Rump starts the season against veteran FF manager Jon Blecher. Will Rumpole's startling move passing up Steeler WR Antonio Brown and drafting rookie RB phenom Saquon Barkley pay off? Blecher snapped up Brown with the next pick. Today will not be Rumpole's day as Barkley' s first game is against a tough Jags D.
De La Fins v. Team Horenstein.
We like hizzoner's team. QB Brees ain't bad, and two good quality RBs in Melvin Gordon and Leonard Fournette, although late breaking news is that Fournette is down with an injury during today's game. Horenstein's QB is Luck. Our own Luck at the 3rd DCA had a better year last year than the injured Indy QB. His RBs are Fin re-tread Lamar Miller, and Bears RB Jordan Howard, along with Drs. Fine and Howard with the Stooges.
Two REGJB big hitters take the field against each other today as Dan Lurvey and Court Keeley match up. Advantage Lurvey in this one as his QB Big Ben, star WR Julio Jones and RBs Lynch and former Fin Jay Ajai compare favorably to Keeley's Qb Newton, and Rbs Gurley and Devonta Freeman.
Millennial Me starts the season off against Multack and Me's QB TE combo (Brady-Gronk) has already paid off with a TD and double points. ME's RB Alex Karma from the Saints compares favorably to Multack's Zeek Elliott. This is a bad year for the Cowpokes, and we look for Elliott's production to taper off.
