Surviving Week #2 With Confidence

Congratulations you survived Week #1 now don’t get distracted!  It’s still a long trail in survivor to get to the end of the path!  Let’s look at our rules for making our week #2 pick.  Map out your first quarter, try to save good teams, avoid the herd game, and avoid taking a road team at all costs.

Mapping out my first quarter- I have planned to take in the first four weeks: Chicago, New England, New Orleans, Atlanta.  New Orleans next week will have to be scrutinized especially if they poorly again this week on defense.

Try to save good teams- There is only one match-up I really like this week or New England wouldn’t be used.

Avoid the Herd Game- The New York Giants at home versus Tampa Bay Bucs.  Giants are more than a TD favorite but they are not a September team and even though I think the Giants will win this game I have very little confidence in the Giants.

Avoid taking road teams.  Baltimore looked great Monday night but taking them on the road against Philly is dangerous

Here are my Week #2 picks for this week

NO-BRAINERS

1. New England- They get Arizona at home at 1pm.  West coast team rarely win these match ups and very rarely against the Patriots

Cautiously Optimistic

1. Ny Giants-  I would avoid this game because the Giants play well in December and January not September

2. San Diego- Another team to avoid in September, but if Ryan Matthews play I like them a lot more

3. San Fransisco- They throttled Green Bay, if they play like that Sunday they should handle Detroit’s offense too

Unorthodox

1. Cincinnati- Home opener should be able to turnover Weeden routinely

2. Houston- On the road against Gabbert.  Houston defense should dominate, but it is on the road

Last Week- 3-0 in No-Brainer Picks!
