Moose's Weekly Picks

Nothing special from Moose last week at 7-6, but you can't go broke making a profit.  I'll take anything above .500 after a big week the previous week.  Let's try and sustain the momentum for a third straight week.

Buffalo (+4.5) at Miami: Methinks the magic man Kyle Orton is beginning to show his ugly face again.  PICK: Miami

Houston (+3) at Cleveland: Break up the Brownies.  I'm really sad for the Chud right now.  This match has been dubbed "Brady Backup Bowl" but I think Mallett has a two cent head to back up that million dollar arm.  PICK: Cleveland

Minnesota (+3) at Chicago: God I love how right I am about Chicago.  Moose had them penciled in to get smacked last week, and sure enough Cutler and Co. surpassed my wildest expectations.  They are at home this week, but I still think they struggle against the Vikes.  PICK: Minnesota

Philadelphia (+6) at Green Bay: Both teams absolutely annihilated very bad teams last week.  Neither is that good, but this will be a good litmus test for each team.  I will take the Packers since they are at home.  PICK: Green Bay

Seattle (+1.5) at Kansas City:  Not an easy No Doubter in the lot, but I like my chances with this one.  The defending champs haven't looked great this year, but are still 6-3.  There is also blood in the water in the NFC West since Carson Palmer went down.  I'll take them with points on the road against the Chiefs, who are riding a less than impressive four game win streak.  NO DOUBTER.  PICK: Seattle

Atlanta (+1.5) at Carolina: Killa Cam looked terrible on Monday night and is clearly not healthy.  This is a battle between two coaches who will not be coaching next season.  PICK: Atlanta

Cincinnati (+7) at New Orleans: I don't think I've seen a quarterback play worse than Andy Dalton did last week.  Look for Breesy and the boys to run over the Bengals this week and stay atop the measly NFC South.  PICK: New Orleans

Tampa Bay (+7) at Washington: And we thought Tampa Bay versus Atlanta was bad last week.  This game is going to be the equivalent of watching Selma and Hans Moleman's kids running around on a football field.  PICK: Washington



Denver (-9.5) at St. Louis: The Rams going back to the Shaun Hill Gang (RIP Big Bank Hank) means that Denver should win pretty convincingly.  PICK: Denver

San Francisco (-4) at NYG: Big win by the Niners last week called by Moose.  They should roll the G-Men this week.  PICK: San Francisco (h/t Dump for the catch)

Oakland (+10) at San Diego: San Diego was the darling of the league only a few weeks ago.  Sparano buries the ball and the Raiders get their first win this week.  PICK: Oakland

Detroit (+2) at Arizona: No Carson for Arizona.  This week we see the true power that lies in the desert.  PICK: Arizona

NEP (+3) at Indianapolis: Indianapolis has looked good since their 0-2 start.  But got exposed by Pittsburgh a few weeks ago.  I think Touchdown Tommy is playing chess, while Luck is still playing checkers.  PICK: NEP

Pittsburgh (-6) at Tennessee: The Steelers have gotta be pissed at losing to the Jets last week.  The poor Titans can't catch a break.  PICK: BLITZburgh

LAST WEEK: 7-6

OVERALL: 67-62-2

NO DOUBTER: 7-2

Moose's Weekly Picks

Bookies are on the run after Moose blew them away with his picks last week.  A 9-4 week puts us squarely in the black on the season.  Let's keep a good thing going this week!

Cleveland (+6.5) at Cincinnati: Two easy home games in a row for the Brownies.  I think they get pasted by the Bengals in Cincy tonight.  PICK: Cincy

Dallas (-6.5) at London Jaguars: No Romo presumably for Dallas.  They should still have enough to beat evil billionaire Shahid Khan and his London Jaguars.  By the way, the Jaguars would be the perfect team to send to London.  They wouldn't even have to change their name.  PICK: Dallas

Miami (+2.5) at Detroit: Where did Miami come from?  A strong defense has keyed a 5-3 start for them.  Where did Detroit come from?  I take great pride in knowing that Jim Schwartz was the reason that they stunk so much.  I suppose I will take Miami here.  PICK: Miami

Kansas City (-2) at Buffalo: Barf.  PICK: Buffalo

San Francisco (+5) at New Orleans: A very important game for these two teams.  San Francisco has had a few of them so far and has responded.  Maybe Harbaugh has become too much for them though.  PICK: San Francisco

Tennessee (+9.5) at Baltimore: Baltimore got waxed by the red hot Stillers last week, but they play well in the trust tree; that is to say, the nest.  I like them to beat up the lowly Titans.  PICK: Baltimore

Pittsburgh (-5) at NYJ: Should be a nice atmosphere in East Rutherford weekend.  It will be the height of boo bird season as Rex gets stomped again.  Especially tough for Jets fans will be seeing the Sanchize lead the Eagles on to victory.  PICK: Pittsburgh

Atlanta (-2.5) at Tampa Bay: Two garbage teams.  Watching this game would be more brutal than when Santa's Little Helper was forced to watch videos of dogs being beaten with newspapers.  PICK: Tampa Bay


Denver (-11.5) at Oakland:  Oaktown hung tough against the Seahawks last week, putting another No Doubter in the win column for Moose.  They will not be able to stop, or stay with Denver's offense though.  PICK: Denver

St. Louis (+7) at Arizona: The Rams pass rush broke out last week.  This week they are in the desert though.  The desert is as tough as any place to play, as we know.  Robert Quinn will be tripping on peyote by halftime.  PICK: Arizona

NYG (+9) at Seattle: The Giants aren't looking too good, and now their receivers have the dropsies.  The only cure is to go back to the "GIANTS" helmet and the white pants permanently.  PICK: Seattle

Chicago (+7.5) at Green Bay: Chicago really f'd themselves over banking on the combination of Trestman and Cutler.  Green Bay is going to squash them like a bug.  Make it my NO DOUBTER of the week.  When Moose talks, people listen.  PICK: Green Bay

Carolina (+6.5) at Philadelphia: Carolina has been crummy this year.  However, we are talking about the Sanchize here.  Moreover, defensive captain Demeco Ryans was lost for the season last week.  I still like the Iggs, but in a close one.  PICK: Carolina

LAST WEEK: 9-4
OVERALL: 60-56-2
NO DOUBTER: 6-2
