Try not to skew the results by picking two teams in the same game, LOL... and don't vote for the divider lines... I made it public, BTW...

I think Tenn@Pitt is probably the toughest choice in this opening week's group.

With ten voters in... The easiest choice? San Diego at Oakland, LOL.

Somehow, Seattle @ St. Louis has 11 votes... someone was on the fence and picked both. :D

Question: Why does the poll close 2 days after all of the games?

Because I'm in a dark, noisy room and I was too lazy to do the math and count out how many days I should leave it open. :) If a Mod can change it to 5 days, knock yourself out...

No that's fine, I wasn't trying to nitpick, I was just curious.

Tenn @ Pitt is a tough one. I think losing Haynesworth puts Pitt ahead in my mind. I'll have to see a few regular season games for the Titans to know how that has effected them.

I would agree. And I still just don't trust Kerry Collins.

Even on a Chiefs board I'm suprised that 25% are picking KC.

Rules for week one:
1. If you fired your OC within the last week, you lose.
2. If you are starting a rookie QB, you lose.
3. If you won 5 or fewer games the year before, you lose.

I think most are assuming Miami's 11-5 run last year was overachieving, and that they're coming back to earth quickly. The Wildcat is no longer new and nifty, Pennington is a lame duck, and they had a lot of borderline Ws last year (low-scoring affairs with pushovers, and the Fins barely won). They beat Seattle by 2, the Raiders by 2, the Rams by 4, the Niners by 5... probably one of the more unimpressive 11-win teams I've seen.

Old habits die hard. I found myself picking SF over Arizona, because you know, they are the Cardinals.

Then I thought about what I was doing.

Certainly, just odd too me that over twice as many people thought Tenn was going to go to Pitt and win.

Looks like a lot of blowouts week 1.

I didn't pick either one but I heisitated on the Titans to upset the Steelers and the J-E-T-S over the Texans.

JD10367

No, that would be a dark, noisy room with something poking at my ass.

Man, it's hard to keep this thing up.

On page one, I meant. That was a bad segue...

So far, JASONSAUTO gets the silver medal for balls, for being the only person to pick Detroit. But purplelights300 easily took gold, as the only person so far to predict both the Bills AND Raiders to win on Monday night. ROFL I think Obama has a better chance of getting a reach-around from Newt Gingrich than the Bills and Raiders both winning...

I took Carolina, I don't see a lot of good coming out of the McNair/Vick thing.

Vick won't be able to play this week though so that shouldn't be a distraction just yet. If Westbrook plays like he's healthy and has the explosiveness that he brings then I think the Eagles win and they could win big. At 2 1/2 point favorites, I'm going to jump all over them this week. The only thing I can see losing it for me is if Westbrook just doesn't look like his old self since he missed the entire preseason and even then McCoy has looked impressive in the preseason.

I took Carolina as well, but it wasn't because of McNair - hell he doesn't bother me at all, he's been shot dead and never played for either team.

And you typically don't take Carolina out of the gates, however, IF the Eagles are even close to what people keep saying, I bet it takes them a minute to get it together. That place is a bit of a mess with Vick and all the WRs, and the death of the DC does NOT help.....I like D. Williams and Steve Smith against a Philly DEF that's sans Dawkins too.

Meh. They are. But I still think they win. Fucking Carolina. They can beat anybody or lose by 20.

I think Delhomme is getting worn out, Steve Smith is getting old, and Peppers is already old.

If Philly can stop the run, I think they'll score enough points to win.

I actually picked them too. The Chiefs have no pressure, nothing to lose (other than another game), and I think we'll all be surprised at how our defense is able to keep us in the game. If we're around in the 4th, we can do it. Clearly we're the underdogs, but hey you never know.

You're right, but McNabb has seemed a bit pissed about the whole deal (he never came and said he was, he just seemed like it). I thought the whole deal would be a distraction.

I guess if McNabb goes 20 of 25 for 280 yards, 3 TD and 0 INTs he doesn't give the team much need to pick Vick in, even as a gimmick.

So he could use it as motivation? I guess so, could be interesting to watch.
