Schon: NFL Picks Week Six

Wow – what a freaked week… Leave It To Beaver's mom passes, my dog develops an issue between her colon and my carpet and the Broncos are taking on Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets without safety Brian Dawkins, linebacker Robert Ayers and cornerback Andre Goodman… like I said – it's been kind of jacked

Wow – what a freaked week… Leave It To Beaver's mom passes, my dog develops an issue between her colon and my carpet and the Broncos are taking on Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets without safety Brian Dawkins, linebacker Robert Ayers and cornerback Andre Goodman.

Well, at least CU dropped one on Baylor – oh, wait a minute, sorry – guess they tanked on that one as well… like I said – it's been kind of jacked..

But hey, I'm looking at everything with a "keg is half full attitude" so I'm tossing it out to CSU – who represented against UNLV to the tune of 43-10 - ending their 10-game losing skid in the Mountain West, which dates back to Nov. 22, 2008.

It doesn't get more positive than that….

Around the NFL – Brett Favre remains a topic of discussion with smart money banking on a six-game suspension to come down in this Tuesday's meeting with commish Roger Goodell, which will probably be reduced to 4-games, ala Ben Roethlisberger –coincidentally returning this week after his well publicized tryst with a much younger female.

Look, I'm the last guy in the world to slam anybody for a little self-promotion, but I'm definitely against a little self-promotion when it comes 41-year old quarterback sending out multiple shots of his junk to employees of the team he actually plays for – especially when he's got a wife of 14-years, who miraculously survived breast cancer and two beautiful daughters – dead set in the crosshairs of every media outlet in the country.

Nice move - (allegedly).

Ok – we've got the trifecta - former Bronco Tony Scheffler, who ranks 5th in the league among tight ends, signs a new three-year deal with the Lions – former Bronco Peyton Hillis is tearing it up in Cleveland and former Bronco Alphonso Smith is making the highlight reel with a pick in every single game he's played in since being dumped by boy wonder.

On a brighter note I just picked up my new Josh McDaniels Halloween costume – hoodie, whistle and an ego the size of Montana. Wonder if I'm getting lucky this year?

For those of you interested – I'm rolling out my picks ATS (against the spread) for Week Six… once again busting it against ProStar's Roni Bryant (who took an entire week to catch the "little Favre" reference from last week).

Like shooting fish in a barrel…
