Schon: NFL Picks Week Three

I've got to tell you – this week has been completely jacked for sports here in the 5280– first we had the tragic loss of Broncos WR Kenny McKinley, then we saw the Rockies virtually blow themselves out of the playoffs - only to come back Saturday with a Tulo walk off double - giving us that ‘last chance for a lap dance' tease.

I've got to tell you – this week has been completely jacked for sports here in the 5280– first we had the tragic loss of Broncos WR Kenny McKinley, then we saw the Rockies virtually blow themselves out of the playoffs - only to come back Saturday with a Tulo walk off double - giving us that ‘last chance for a lap dance' tease. Now we're looking at the city's only true superstar, apparently ready to pack it up for one of the worst teams in the NBA… you just can't make this stuff up. Good luck Melo.

Before you get carried away and consider life in a monastery let me give you the picks for Week Three of the NFL Season – pretty sure I mean each and every one of them… Once again going head to head with the only person I know that takes this seriously.

8-7-1 Season 15-14-3


Titans (+3) over GIANTS – Baby Manning looks more confused than a Match.com date
Steelers (-2.5) over BUCS – Pretty wicked when Polamalu's hair outweighs the loss of Big Ben
RAVENS (-10.5) over Browns – Love Peyton Hillis – can't stand LeBron James - either way the Browns still blow
PATRIOTS (-14.5) over Bills – Buffalo grabbing 14.5 still isn't enough - Pats win – Brady reduces last week's suckage factor and the Bills gets slammed again
SAINTS (-4) over Falcons – Brees pulls this one out in spite of his commercials
Niners (-2.5) over CHIEFS – Going against KC at Arrowhead? Why not?
Bengals (-3) over PANTHERS – Ocho – TO – Oh Oh – I'm laying 3
SEAHAWKS (+5.5) over Chargers – just cause I can't stand Phillip Rivers
Redskins (-3.5) over RAMS –Shanny's gotta be able to pull this one off… doesn't he? Lions (+11) over VIKINGS – Favre looks about as motivated as my ex-wife
TEXANS (-3) over Cowboys – Kubes is dying to slam it to Jerry Jones
Colts (-5.5) over BRONCOS – Would have rolled with this one at Colts –10…sad
Eagles (-3) over JAGS – Vick slams it to PETA two weeks in a row
Raiders (+4.5) over CARDINALS – Absolutely no clue why I picked this one….
DOLPHINS (-2) over Jets – Brandon Marshall has a HUGE day in South Beach and everyone in Denver remembers why they used to hate Josh McDaniels
BEARS (+3) over Packers – just cause I can't stand Jay Cutler (what?)
