    Ah, football is back at last. They may have finally figured out what a catch is, but now they have muddied how a tackle may be made. Anyway, here's to another fun season of football.

    Here's my picks:
    • FALCONS AT EAGLES --- Champs beat Failcons at home.
    • BILLS AT RAVENS --- Ravens at Home
    • JAGUARS AT GIANTS --- Jags great defense should smother Jersey Gints
    • BUCCANEERS AT SAINTS --- Saints should take care of Succaneers at home.
    • TEXANS AT PATRIOTS --- Should be a good matchup. Texans at full strength could be scary.
    • 49ERS AT VIKINGS --- Vikes at home.
    • TITANS AT DOLPHINS --- Think Titans overall better than the Fish.
    • BENGALS AT COLTS --- Bengals better defensively. Luck hasn't played for a couple years now.
    • STEELERS AT BROWNS --- Brownies should be better this year, but not good enough.
    • CHIEFS AT CHARGERS --- Chargers at home over Chefs without Alex Smith.
    • SEAHAWKS AT BRONCOS --- Another good matchup. Will Keenum turn into a pumpkin?
    • COWBOYS AT PANTHERS --- Panthers over Cowpies at home. Cowpies without Dez & Witten.
    • REDSKINS AT CARDINALS --- Can Card's brittle QB stay on the field?
    • BEARS AT PACKERS --- Green Bay Rogerses should beat the Bearsus at home.
    • JETS AT LIONS --- Kitties at home.
    • RAMS AT RAIDERS --- Should be interesting to see what Gruden can do with Raiders.

    Patriots are loaded on D this year. Highly underrated in that area.

    I agree with your picks with the exception of the Hawks and Broncos. I think the Hawks are in for a down year, while the Broncos may find some success with Keenum and that D.

    I was kind of waffling on this game. I also think the Seachix are probably in a down cycle, but they still do have an effective defense and Russell Wilson. I'm happy for Case Keenum, that he got his payday. He had a fantastic year for the Vikes, coming off the bench and taking them all the way to the NFC Championship game. I was kind of hoping the Vikes would keep him, but they paid the big bucks for Cousins instead. I don't think Case has the same tools to work with in Denver though. Tough defense should keep them in games.

    Glad to see Foles starting for the birds tonight. The Eagle variety, I mean. Not the Falcon variety.

    I predict 6 td passes out of Foles. All long balls.
