The seconds couldn’t tick off the clock fast enough for me. Not during that night game, with Dallas leading well over the Ants. The Dallas victory put me at 6-8 for the week and a horrible start to the season. It was racing through my mind, should I stop? If I continue to make bad decisions like this, people might start calling me an expert, or worse, Governor Blanco. Thank God for Monday night where both my picks were correct.
For the week, 8-8 not even playoff caliber.
New Orleans @ Indianapolis
What a way to open the season though I’d rather see it start of with a win, for both the Saints and I.

Kansas City @ Houston
Kansas Cityâ€™s weak defense allows Houston to put points on the board, and more than enough.
AV~Picked Chiefs 41 Texans 24
Final Score Texans 20 Chiefs 3
Atlanta @ Minnesota
Now that Vickâ€™s been bit by the law, Atlantaâ€™s season is in a dogfight. Perhaps if Michael Vick would have concentrated on football instead of dogfighting, he might have had a Superbowl ring by now. Atlanta without Michael Vick is a not much better team.

Final Score Vikings 24 Falcons 3

New England kept the Jets grounded and gave me my first win of the week.

Tennessee @ Jacksonville
Tennessee has been Titanic, as in their recent seasons have sunk, but a new season and a second year QB steers them to victory. Titans hammer the Jags

Tampa Bay @ Seattle
Hasselback apparently likes President Bush, now Seattle liberals hate Hasselback. Iâ€™d hate to play in a city of crazy people too. Buccs still didn’t benefit.
