OPEN THREAD: NFL Week 2- Picks & Posts

Week 1 for GSoF resulted in 2 L's. One was a moral victory (49ers losing by 7 in a pretty fun game) and the other was just morally wrong (Raiders need a new offensive coach... maybe Don Nelson?).

The GSoM community knows the football better than Bo Jackson. Last week I was a respectable 8-7, but that's nothing compared to longtime GSoM community member DaAzNJRiCh who went 11-4! This is the same guy who said "Not a football guy All of these are guesses cuz I don't know anything about football." Props to DaAzNJRiCh the "modest assassin"! Let's see if DaAzNJRiCh can pull it off again in Week 2.

Also shout out to R Dizzle, YaoButtaMing, shrug, and djchuckdeez for going 10-5.

On to Week 2 in the... National... Football... League.

Bank on this going down:

Week 2 Matchup
Buffalo (0-1) @
Miami (1-0)
Look for Culpepper to bounce back.
Carolina (0-1) @
Minnesota (1-0)
Carolina will bounce back.
Cleveland (0-1) @
Cincinnati (1-0)
The only question is what TD celebration does Chad Johnson have planned?
Detroit (0-1) @
Hide the kids! This is going to be an ugly, ugly game.
Houston (0-1) @
Indianapolis (1-0)
This is like a preseason game for the Colts.
New Orleans (1-0) @
Green Bay (0-1)
Look for Reggie Bush to cash in against the pathetic Packers.
NY Giants (0-1) @
Philadelphia (1-0)
McNabb looks sharp again and Stallworth was a great pickup. The NFC East goes through Philly.
Tampa Bay (0-1) @
Atlanta (1-0)
The Bucs are better than they played last week and the Falcons aren't as good as they played last week.
Arizona (1-0) @
Seattle (1-0)
Fitzgerald and Boldin are unstoppable, but the problem is Warner is very stoppable.
Kansas City (0-1) @
Denver (0-1)
Classic AFC West battle. It's going to be won on the ground or lost in the air.
New England (1-0) @
NY Jets (1-0)
The 49ers already regret trading away Barlow- a year later than they should have.
Tennessee (0-1) @
San Diego (1-0)
Sun Diego D. Shout out to UCSD- Forget the Titans. Remember the Tritons!
Washington (0-1) @
Dallas (0-1)
Here's comes a lot of annoying NFC East hype on Sunday night.
Pittsburgh (1-0) @
Jacksonville (1-0)
A tough defensive battle.

I say one win for Yay Area football this week. The 49ers should be able to handle the Rams at home, but the Raiders need to get a new offensive assistant coach like a Charger fan in the Black Hole needs a few security guards:

Golden State of Football
St. Louis (1-0) @
San Francisco (0-1)
A high scoring first W for the home opener!
Oakland (0-1) @
Baltimore (1-0)
Things could get ugly fast for the Raiders... fast as in last Monday.
