NFL Week 7 Picks

So I’m a little behind this week and didn’t quite get to counting who won this week.  I will add the comments down later, but so far, the NFL is still proving to be the land of surprises.  *cough*Browns 34*cough*Giants 14.  Ehem.

Now that I’ve had a good laugh at my Giant Lovin’ buddy Eric Stashin, here are the picks for this weeks NFL games.  Give us your thoughts and post who you think would win if you want to play along.

Tony Romo out for 4 weeks? Dallas Cowboy fans, hit the panic button.

By Felipe Dominguez

 

They were hailed the SuperBowl Champs for the 2008 season before there was a season.  Boasting several ProBowl players and a roster full of potential superstars, the Dallas Cowboys were hailed as the team to beat.  Six weeks into the regular season, you would think twice and probably laugh at all of those who made those claims.

 

Face it, the Dallas Cowboys looked good on paper with names like DeMarcus Ware, Greg Ellis, Terrance Newman, PacMan Jones, Marion Barber, Terrell “I love me some me” Owens and America’s biggest sweetheart, Tony Romo.

What happened to these quarterbacks?

By Felipe Dominguez

 

“Paging Carson Palmer’s arm.  Carson Palmer’s arm, please report to game day.”

“See Peyton Manning.  See Peyton Manning throw.  Incomplete, Peyton Manning, incomplete.”

 

When Peyton Manning was coming out of the college ranks, people were salivating over his arm strength, his poise, his leadership.  Everyone knew that this guy would be something special, but of course, then there’s Ryan Leaf, but lets forget about Leaf for now.  We all know who Manning is.  Touchdown after touchdown to guys like Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison.  His history is well documented.  Last year, the Indianpolis Colts were hailed as arguably and probably the only team who could even attempt to dethrone the then perfect New England Patriots.  The Colts have always been herald as a perennial Superbowl contender even winning one in the process.  This offseason, fantasy owners were marking up their lists.  Setting everything up.  Top quarterback lists were created and near the top….Peyton Manning.

Week 6 NFL Picks

A lil’ more respect for me this week, but Stashin still pulls away with another week as we both go:

Eric: 8-6

Felipe:  7-7

Still looking for that bounce back win, but there were a few surprises this week.  Who would have thought Seattle would fold up the way it did against the Giants who are in Superbowl form at this juncture of the season.  Miami looks to be gaining momentum as they beat a good San Diego team.  Close games between Indy and Houston, Denver and Tampa, and Minnesota and New Orleans.  Phew.  What a season of ups and downs it has been as there is no clear dominant team like we had in the form of the New England Patrios, Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts and Dallas Cowboys last season.

This season, it’s a toss up.  Can you tell me who is going to win the Superbowl right now?

NFL Week 5 Picks

By Felipe Dominguez

Horrible week for both Stashin and I as the NFL gives us all something to talk about each and every week with surprises back and forth.  Six TD’s by Brett Favre.  Who would have thunk it?  Matt Ryan and the Falcons couldn’t get off the ground.  Larry Johnson is all over the place for Kansas City.  Miamia and Ronnie Brown stun New England and the list goes on and on. 

 Stash: 7-6

Felipe: 5-8

 Not very good, but Stashin is leading this little bet between us, but I’m looking to get back on track this week.  So without further ado.

NFL Week 4 Picks

Last week wasn’t a good week for both Stash and I.  Both of us went with a record of 9-7 as we took calculated risks as to who would have a good game and who wouldn’t.  I mean, did you all see Miami giving the butt whoopin’ they gave the New England Patriots?  I didn’t.  So with that in mind, we continue on and hopefully shore up this weeks record with some solid picks.

NFL Week 3 Picks

By Felipe Dominguez

So I layed down a little challange for my friend and buddy Eric Stashin.  He knows baseball well, as you all may know, but how well does he know football?  So he and I are going on a little competition and each week, we will pick who will win each game for that week.  So without further interruption, here are these weeks picks.

I hate to say it, but….

By Felipe Dominguez

 

After a small vacation I am back and ready to reach into my brain to pull out a few words in the mad word of the NFL, so here we go.

 

I hate to say “I told you so”, but I TOLD YOU SO.  For reasons that are beyond me, the Minnesota Vikings have finally had enough of quarterback Tavaris Jackson by announcing that veteran Gus Frerotte will be starting under center.  Several people told me.  The Minnesota Vikings will be a team to be reckoned with.  The Minnesota Vikings can reach the Super Bowl.  With the trade of Jared Allen from the Kansas City Chiefs, the Minnesota Vikings will win this season.  Please.  If there was ever a glaring hole within the Viking team it was always Tavaris Jackson.  A sub-par quarterback who has a ton of question marks surrounding him with the leading question being, can he lead a team to the Super Bowl?

 

Did you all learn from Bill Parcell’s project with the Dallas Cowboys named Quincy Carter and his famous “Bus Driver” theory?

Defensive struggles. Teams losing key players.

by Felipe Dominguez

Now, I know that a lot of Fantasy Leagues do not have drafting a defense, but I know a lot who do.  So here is a quick change of pace from us talking about quaterbacks, running backs and wide receivers.  There are a couple of key injuries that could very well change the face of the team defense.

 

The New York Giants have lost defensive end Osi Umenyiora with a knee injury for the rest of the year, tearing his lateral meniscus in Saturday nights game against the New York Jets.  This leaves the Giants with big questions including the possible return of Michael Strahan whose help will be sorely needed.   Read more
