"Then why haven't you shut up about them?"
They could have drafted Mahomes! Or Watson! But after trading up they went with Mitch Tribusky? I don't think we can win Jack Shrimp with him under center, Ryan Pace would have drafted Charlie Batch over Peyton Manning!
"I would have drafted Charlie Batch over Peyton Manning".
I know! I just said that. What the hell are you doing here?
"Can I have some applesauce and can Belly Button Girl feed it to me? My mommy pretends the spoon is a airplane!"
"I'll do it, Ryan. Here comes the choo choo!"
"Aaaaaaaaah!! Mommy mommy! Why does that lady sound like Uncle Ernie?!"
"Your fantasy team would have won if you had started me!"
Jets Wideout Jamison Crowder! I know, but in my defense, who knew?
"You drafted me! You should have had faith."
I'll probably start you this week and you'll suck."
"Moving on, how about them Browns?"
"We don't wanna talk about it."
Let me know if you want on/off the list.

Thursday picks already recorded, Carolina: Myself, Pete, Big
Vikings at Packers at 8:15 Sunday.
Carolina over Tampa Bay
Arizona over Baltimore
Cincinnati over San Francisco
Chargers over Detroit
Minnesota over Green Bay
Houston over Jacksonville
New England over Miami
Buffalo over Giants
Seattle over Pittsburgh
Indianapolis over Tennessee
Washington over Dallas
My beloved Chiefs over Oakland
Bears over Denver
Rams over New Orleans
Philadelphia over Atlanta
Cleveland over the Jets

Cards over Bmore
Chargers zap Detroit
How ‘bout them Cowboys
Pats cause Miami can’t live last week down
KC since Raider D can’t contain Mahomes
Saints in this NFC title game rematch
Eagles, ‘cause this one’s for the birds
Browns on MNF
Rams (without help from the refs)
iggles (But hoping the dirty birds destroy them)
The last few minutes of the Saints-Texans Monday night game were great. IIRC, with less then 50 seconds on the clock, 2 long passes took the Texans to a TD to go ahead. Saints responded with 2 seconds on the clock with a field goal to win.
Sunday night, Brady was kinda showing his age — not even 40 points. The ole guy probably only has 4 or 5 more Superbowls in him. :)
Tampa Bay at Carolina
L.A. Chargers at Detroit
Jacksonville at Houston
Minnesota at Green Bay
Seattle at Pittsburgh
San Francisco at Cincinnati
Indianapolis at Tennessee
New England at Miami
Dallas at Washington
Buffalo at N.Y. Giants
Arizona at Baltimore
Kansas City at Oakland
Chicago at Denver
New Orleans at L.A. Rams

Surprisingly, since I have Baker Mayfield as my QB, my fantasy team still managed to squeak out a win. On to Week 2!
Thursday, September 12, 2019 (All Times Eastern)
Tampa Bay at Carolina 8:20 pm NFL Network Bank of America Stadium Rough season start for both these squads, rougher for the Bucs. But Carolina kept it close against LA, and I believe the home advantage puts them over the top here. Panthers.
Sunday, September 15, 2019
L.A. Chargers at Detroit 1:00 pm CBS Ford Field Chargers picked up right where they left off last season (well, not exactly I do remember a bad playoff loss to the Pats...). And Matt Patricia's second season in Motown isn't looking any better than the first. Chargers.
Jacksonville at Houston 1:00 pm CBS NRG Stadium The Texans came up just short against NO but seemed to be able to move the ball at will in the second half. Nick Foles went down in his first game as a Jag. Not a good sign. Texans.
Minnesota at Green Bay 1:00 pm FOX Lambeau Field Two Week 1 winners meet! Home opener for the Packers and I do believe they will put up more than 10 points. But the Vikings.... who the hell knows? Packers.
Seattle at Pittsburgh 1:00 pm FOX Heinz Field Was that the real Steelers team that got throttled by the Pats Sunday night? Or was it just one bad performance? Seahawks squeaked by the Bungles; they'll need to do better than that this week. And they will! Seahawks.
San Francisco at Cincinnati 1:00 pm FOX Paul Brown StadiumA good but not extremely difficult road test for the Niners. Hey, it's the Bungles! Niners.
Indianapolis at Tennessee 1:00 pm CBS Nissan Stadium The Titans stomped the Browns and I still don't see Andrew Luck in uniform for the Colts. Titans.
New England at Miami 1:00 pm CBS Hard Rock Stadium The Phish gave up 59 to the Ravens, not exactly an offensive powerhouse. And NE will put all the Antonio Brown brouhaha aside and concentrate on the job Sunday. Patriots.
Dallas at Washington 1:00 pm FOX FedEx Field The Redskins woes continue with a second straight loss to a division opponent. Cowboys.
Buffalo at N.Y. Giants 1:00 pm CBS MetLife Stadium Josh Allen continues to grow as a QB. The Giants? Well, Saquon Barkley can't do it all by himself. Bills.
Arizona at Baltimore 1:00 pm FOX M&T Bank Stadium Home opener for the Blackbirds and the Cardinals with Murray are very much a work in progress. Progress that will be stalled Sunday. Ravens.
Kansas City at Oakland 4:05 pm CBS RingCentral Coliseum Oakland surprised Monday night. That's their hurrah for the season. Mahomes and Company will light up that stadium. Chiefs.
Chicago at Denver 4:25 pm FOX Broncos Stadium at Mile High I don't believe the Bears are as bad as their opening performance. And I do believe the Broncos are just not very good. Bears.
New Orleans at L.A. Rams 4:25 pm FOX Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum The Game of the Week! No last second heroics will be necessary from Brees and the Saints this week. They'll win easily. Saints.
Philadelphia at Atlanta 8:20 pm NBC Mercedes-Benz Stadium The conventional wisdom loves the Iggles this season, and until proven wrong I'm going with it. Eagles.
Monday, September 16, 2019
Cleveland at N.Y. Jets 8:15 pm ESPN MetLife Stadium A team has to be happy when they look on the schedule and see the NYJ are up. Jets managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Week 1. Mayfield should be primed for a big performance (if he doesn't get sacked 10 times...) on national TV and with something to prove after a Week 1 turkey. Browns.
Good luck everyone!
I heard this a lot on sports talk this week. Remember the Bears lost their opener last season, yet still won the division and would have won a playoff game if they had a kicker.
Go Jameis, redeem thyself!!

Enterprise to Impy
Next Thursday game is between two good grief teams, Bucs and Panthers. In the event I am late I picking the Bucs anyway.
Ok now for the rest of the sheet. I feel so bad BBG, but I just CAN'T take the Bears.
Woo Hoo! Lions still unbeaten!
