Happy Thanksgiving! May your hearts
and tummies be equally full. My “This Week in Football”
Giants over Broncos because I believe the Giants defense will be better.
The alternative is hard to imagine.
Panthers over Jets because of the
running back tandem of Williams and Stewart. (In fairness, these picks were
made on Tuesday before the guys and I knew Kerry Rhodes had been benched and of
the new code system for Sanchez. Presumably one of those codes translates to
“Throw the ball away. Now.” Not saying either development would have
changed my mind. Just saying.)
And Saints over Patriots in what
should be a tremendously entertaining Monday night affair.
By the way, I’ll still never pick
the Lions again. But what a comeback!
It’s time for some TWIF picks! That’s right, I’ll be making my football picks here during the season and competing against the guys on “This Week in Football.” We pick the Giants and Jets games and one wildcard — straight up, no spread. Fingers crossed, here goes:
Giants over Redskins. The Giants pass rush will harass Jason Campbell. Brandon Jacobs will run over someone. The receivers will catch some of Eli Manning’s passes.
Texans over Jets. Houston has Andre Johnson, DeMeco Ryans and Dunta Robinson. The Texans have to finish above .500 one of these years. And Mark Sanchez is a rookie.
Saints over Lions. Because I desperately do not want to go 0-fer the first week.
See you later. Remember, YES is doing a pregame and postgame show tonight. The game is on My9.
