Finally, the real Donovan McNabb returns.

10) Seattle Seahawks (6-3)

Last Week: 20th, Bye Week
Can Saints stay hot on offense?

19) Washington Redskins (4-5)
Last Week: 23rd, Defeated Seattle 27-20
Steve Spurrier's gutsy (lucky?) and only two offensive calls may have saved the season for the Redskins.

20) New York Giants (4-5)
Last Week: 17th, Lost to Atlanta 27-7
Could Jim Fassel be on the way out and Tom Coughlin on the way in?

21) Buffalo Bills (4-5)

Bills need to make better adjustments on offense to pass rush.

22) New York Jets (3-6)

27) Cleveland Browns (3-6)

The release of Kevin Johnson is just mind boggling to me.

28) Jacksonville Jaguars (2-7)
Last Week: 29th, Defeated Indianapolis 28-23
Jags' roster looks good on offense.

29) Arizona Cardinals (3-6)
Last Week: 26th, Lost to Pittsburgh 28-15
Can't figure this team out.

30) Atlanta Falcons (2-7)
Last Week: 32nd, Defeated NY Giants 20-7
With Warrick Dunn, why draft T.J. Duckett? That's what you get when you listen to Bobby Beathard these days.

31) Chicago Bears (3-6)
Last Week: 25th, Lost to Detroit 12-10
Bears are winless on the road this season.

32) Oakland Raiders (2-7)

How much you wanna bet DeLawrence Grant is going through tackling drills right now?

Ladies and gentlemen
Take my advice
Write me an e-mail
And try to be nice.

It's not really hard
And not that much work
I'll answer your letters
Unless you're a jerk.

Don't like my poems?
Don't like my picks?
I really don't care much,
Because you're all....THICK...
