Week 1 in the National Football League began this past Thursday with the terrible towels of Pittsburgh giving some serious towel burn to the Miami Dolphins. Sunday's matchups and Monday's game in the Town should be much more fun to watch.
As requested by loyal GSoM community member Zorgon, we're going to roll out a new segment on weekly NFL predictions. Here's who I think will win this week:
|Week 1 Matchup||
|The Panthers always give the Michael Vick experience a lot of trouble.|
|McNair's going to do big things this season.|
|Can't wait to see what Chad Johnson has planned!|
|The greatest whoppin' on turf.|
|New Orleans @
|I never thought I'd say this: I can't wait to see what Bush is going to do.|
|NY Jets @
|J.E.T.S = Just End the Season|
|The Houston Oilers have a better chance of pulling this one off.|
|The Madden curse begins...|
|Over/ under on Farve's interceptions = 3|
|Jimmy Smith was one of the most underrated WR's of all time. An oddly quiet retirement for a future hall of famer.|
|Put all your money on Manning.|
|The Skins are missing Clinton Portis, but the Vikes are missing Daunte Culpepper and Randy Moss.|
I have a good feeling about Yay Area football this week. Don't ask me why. It's just an opening week hunch:
Golden State of Football
|San Francisco @
|No matter how much we suck, we still own the Cardinals.|
|San Diego @
|The Art of stopping Rivers from flowing.|
What are your predictions for the 1st week of NFL action? Most importantly, how about for GSoF (the Gold Rush 49ers and the Black Hole Raiders)? Make sure to post your predictions in the comments section and vote on the Bay squads before kickoff Sunday at 10am.
Just like we do in the regular season for Warrior games: If you're watching or listening to the NFL games and are near a computer, this is the spot to showcase your knowledge and post your thoughts.
Whoever picks the most Week 1 winners will get some serious GSoM fame in Week 2's Picks & Posts. It could be you! If we get enough comments, we can also do a NFL Week 1 quote of the week. It could be you! Pick & post.
