Chelle’s Picks 9-19-10

 Another week, and hopefully another win.  For me as well as for the Skins.  10-5 isn’t bad, but I’d like to see if I can do better.

 The Skins’ Defense really pulled it out last week, and I’m looking for that same kind of heartfelt action against the Texans.  Donovan—we all wish you the best of luck as our new starting quarterback (although it’s still hard to see you in the Burgundy and Gold).  Hope to see you connect with some receivers this week.  And Shanahan, make the run game your top priority.  Donovan needs some relief against these cornfed Texans!

 Now, for my picks. 

 The Four to Watch:

 Philadelphia vs. Detroit:  Yeah, this is a top 4.  Because with the loss of their starting QB’s, these two teams have a lot at stake.  The Lions need to prove that their disastrous losing streak really is over, and the Eagles need to show that they aren’t about to start one.  But with Kolb out, and Vick in—my money’s on Phillie.

 Houston vs. Washington:  You know I love to see a good fight, especially between Capitol Hill and the Big T.  Remember the Alamo, my foot!  And this will definitely be a good one.  Second home game for the burgundy and gold, after a foot-stomping crazy victory over another team from Texas.  Houston fought hard last week, against a poorly prepared team.  Watch for special teams this week to pull out some spectacular highlights, and be prepared to sing Hail to the Redskins, cause we’re heading for our second win of the season!

 New England vs. New York Jets:  D#*&!, this one’s going to be cool.  Too bad I’ll be watching my heroes and won’t be able to catch it.  Because Tom Brady is going to show Mark Sanchez what it’s like to play in the big leagues.  How could you ever doubt the Pats?  Even without the penalty yardage, New England will come out on top.

 New York Giants vs. Indianapolis:  Don’t kid yourself into thinking this game is about brother-to-brother combat.  It’s about a strong running game against a poor defense.  If the Giants are smart, they’ll keep the ball on the ground.  Fortunately (for those of us in the NFC East who are hoping to take the title this year!), Tom Coughlin just isn’t that smart, and Manning’s (Eli, that is) ego will fire back.  Peyton will Hos de flesta nat n kan du enbart vaxla in poangen mot kontanter eller bonusar. come out on top, and the Colts will regain their position as last year’s Super Bowl contenders.  Here’s one team in the blue and white I can root for!


Neither the Bucs nor the Panthers played their best game last week.  And don’t look for them to do it this week either.  This is probably a who cares?, but I’m taking Tampa Bay, on the road.  John Fox just hasn’t gotten an offensive rhythm started with his new QB, and the Bucs’ defense is too tough for Carolina. 

 Who cares?:

Despite all the hype, Cincinnati looked bad last week.  And with all the talent on that team, their play can only be attributed to one factor:  the coach.  Marvin Lewis, you’re a great defensive coordinator.  Granted, the Ravens didn’t look good last week—that online casino MNF game was a Hot, Buttery MESS!!  But I’m going with the Ravens to pull this one out, even on the road. 

 No way Dallas is going to lose 2 in a row, especially when they’re trying to sell Super Bowl tickets in their new stadium.  At home, against Jay Cutler and Lovie Smith with the Bears, the Cowboys will blow it out of the water.

 Granted Atlanta looked bad last week, but at home, against the Cardinals (excuse me, against Derek Anderson), Matt Ryan’s going to look real good.  Atlanta will come out smelling like a peach!

 Chiefs looked good last week.  Browns didn’t.  Easy pick—go with Kansas City. 

 Green Bay will make mincemeat of the Bills.

 So I got burned last week picking against Pittsburgh, but guess what?  I’m going to do it again.  I just don’t have any faith in Mike Tomlin’s game plan without his starting QB.  And the Titans are a tough team with a lot to prove.  Tennessee will take it, I think, I hope.

 Vikings will destroy Dolphins.  Don’t even bother tuning in.  Brett finally showed up for practice.

 Campbell will finally get his win, against the Rams.  But the Raiders will look an awful lot like the opening home game Skins from last year.  No touchdowns, no defense, a very angry crowd.  Getting déjà vu yet?

 Seattle will put up a tough fight, but Denver will take the day at home. 

 Those doggone Chargers really set me back last week.  How dare they lose to KC!!  They won’t do it twice, and Gerrard the Jaguar doesn’t have the arm to pass against them.  Look for San Diego to win their home opener, even if it ain’t pretty.

 Why is this a Monday night matchup?  The Saints are going to do bad things out in San Francisco.  Losing won’t be one of them.
