going live here.
This is a live recording.
It's September 3rd, almost september 4th.
Um, here in the east, it's 11.
Piana, I'm doing some NFL Week One picks.
This will be the straight up pick addition.
And in these ones, I'm in two separate pick pools.
I'm in a straight up one.
And I do, um, spread pics with the team over at hardwood and Hollywood so different pick leagues.
I'm me and I also have an eliminator.
So really quick, I'm gonna put in my twitter handle here to start, I put in my twitter handle on Patriot and every stream I do.
Um, starting now, before I start with the O.
B s cellphone and stuff.
So gonna wait for this, uh, people jump in here talking NFL Week one.
The first put the pick of leagues got Have your picture by Thursday.
Um, there's already football back this Thursday Bears Packers.
Their first game together last year.
The bears completely choking blow.
It, um, may be different this year.
The bears air coming in.
I mean, this is a straight up addition, but just for reference is three point favorites, but they're at home.
So really, they're kind of spot that a few points already.
So will be an interesting one.
That's a different, definitely difficult pick, huh? See, You want to get to my You have been a CBS pickem pool, and I have it pulled up here.
Um, and CBS At least there's a lot of overwhelming favorites in week one.
But including the Cleveland Browns, I should say, but it's always a crapshoot.
Week one, you never know.
You know, teams always get better.
Maybe the chiefs come out this year and they stink it up for a few weeks.
Maybe the bills run over everyone.
Or like last year, they whipped the Viking.
So you never know really? What's gonna be the case with weak one? The Browns could get smoked, and I'm gonna be at the game, too. So that happens.
Um, you know, it's professional football.
So, for example, the browns came everyone saying, Oh, you know, the Browns are going to absolutely dominate the Titans, and the Titans have already said, you know, Hey, heck with that, we think we're gonna dominate the Browns Of course, they're gonna say that.
Um, but anything could happen a week.
That's why I usually is better to go with the favorites.
Um, and usually home teams, too.
I know in my spread picks, it took a lot of away teams could that live on the edge.
But this weekend's a 123456 road teams straight up.
I'm so without the Spreads.
Without further ado, we'll get going here.
First game this Thursday.
Green Bay Packers at Chicago, Beth Chicago Bears.
I'm taking the Bears and on the spread, though, getting these too much.
But I took the Packers.
It's it's a toss up for me.
It would be funny, but horrible.
Sorry, Bear span spinning was watching.
Um, if the Bears lost due to a field goal, I just think the Bears were Super Bowl contenders.
I don't see the Packers at that level being at home.
First game of the air, you know, first game of the entire regular NFL NFL regular season.
I think it's gonna be close within, like a point or two, but pick the Bears with their defense.
The Packers, new coach.
Ah, little different town out there.
I just You know, Mike McCarthy is obviously gone from Green Bay, but I still don't think they're gonna be a Super Bowl contender.
Month Kiss Runner.
Don't think they're going to the Super Bowl contender.
Think the Bears are.
I still think the Bears are the best team at division over the Vikings and the Packers.
The lines having a stink.
Bears looking good, taking him on that one.
I'm a little biased because Mitch Strabinsky did go the same high schools May. He was a great below me.
So my town, my hometown, is a huge Bears town.
Now it's probably outside of Chicago, the only place we will see Mitch Strabinsky barristers.
He's like on every kid he comes back.
Very nice guy almost said.
There's only you're younger than me.
But taking the Bears in that one don't see any reason why.
You know the Packers will be an overwhelming favorite but sync with the Bears in my week.
One fear the next games a little easier.
Baltimore at Miami, Baltimore I don't think there's any concern questions or concerns there.
Fitz Magic is now starting for the Dolphins.
I think they're gonna get smoked.
They just traded their franchise left tackle, Laramie Tunsil.
Not for Jin Avian Clowney, who went to Seattle, um, for a boatload of pick.
So the Dolphins are doing the right thing, tanking wise in that regard there, adding picks, first round picks, the Texans air completely drained upcoming drafts, so kind of a question will move there.
But the Ravens, I think I think the Ravens are really the main threatened a F C North Browns fans.
Are you saying Brown's going division? The Steelers are still up there, too, about the Ravens.
The question will be how Lamar Jackson develops.
If the Ravens still want to try that, we're on the ball like Crazy Located last year, I'm see the Chargers and their playoff game force.
In the past, that did not go well.
So put speed on the field with so many DBS.
But I think that I think that Dolphins are gonna be a 45 win.
Teen wrote about them over a fan sided.
I'm the main Vance have a page kind of weird that Josh Rosen isn't starting right away, and why would you trade for the last year's number 10 overall pick? You're not going to see what you have with them.
Because if you're bad with Fitz Magic and Rosen doesn't get a lot of time, he also was able to tackle that, then can't jump into me.
By the way, um, then say, say they have the 1st 2nd or third pick next year.
You know, we want to take a quarterback, but we have Josh Rosen, who arguably could have been a top five pick two years ago.
But we haven't played enough in a normal situation.
So what we have with them, you don't know so very bizarre.
But game wise, Week one seems like a no brainer.
Ravens next game with the Falcons and the Vikings and my CBS pulled the Vikings there.
81% people going Vikings.
Which is kind of odd, because in CBS overall, you have several people taking the Falcons.
I'm taking the Vikings in this one.
I don't know what this happens are as a team.
Are they? You know they're coming up the 79 season inviting from the 871 Um, I should have been better have more talent.
Calvin Cooke is back.
But back to the Falcons idea.
I don't know who they are as a team, and that's right.
This this is a really weird week.
One matchup, because it's it's really a toss up.
We check the spread here, at least how ESPN has it spread wise.
Minnesota minus four.
You think you get a few points for being at home as well? This is one where I have no clue.
Um, no prediction.
Um, like I s accurate prediction of Oh, this, like the Vikings Air.
Definitely gonna win.
Should be a close one.
His most weak one matchup should be but curious to see this one.
I'll be at the Browns game.
What's going on? But to see the ball on this one.
So so far, I have Vikings, Ravens and Bears moving on to the next easy one.
Chiefs at Jack's taking the road team chiefs in this one.
The Jaguar or so is our team.
5 11 last year after nearly making the Super Bowl two years ago.
Who are they gonna be with Nick Foles there now? Narrator Blake Bortles.
Maybe if they were done that sooner, they could have actually won the Super Bowl.
This made it to the Super Bowl.
It's always weird when the Jaguars are good, because they have been kind of a someone of a joke.
They had success early on in their expansion days, Um, kind like the grounds, but struggled really? Since then.
We're super good two years ago and then just played like garbage.
Last year, they were telling talent.
Leonard Fournette is come back with a positive attitude.
Myles Jack is dominant.
I mean, I don't know.
I want to look in Jalen Ramsey because check his situation.
If he becomes a free agent, that's total sign up.
My point is the Jaguars were stacked, but it's gonna be Is Nick Foles gonna be his Super Bowl self, or is he gonna be the guy I saw last preseason, where he played bad against the Browns and Duck Peterson right off a Super Bowl win, was mad.
That was when the Eagles also got booed Week one at home after a Super Bowl, and I watched it recently.
I need to again makes me laugh every time.
So what's still gonna take the Chiefs? I think the Chiefs are a team that could easily go.
They went 12 and four last year.
They could go 13 and three this year, and I wouldn't be a surprise and all.
But for week one, no matter what, unless your Jags fan, I feel like most people are taking the Chiefs and this one just because how they should have.
They also should have been in the Super Bowl last year and probably would have won, Um, if they had made it so easy Pick for me.
They're they're 94% people taking them at the CBS pool Next game.
Another overwhelming favorite.
Redskins and Eagles take of the Eagles.
Carson wins who is making a lot of money.
Not as much as Jared Goff, though, because to put the news today, Redskins, um, if you like underdog bets on the Moneyline, take them.
If you're in a betting state, um, probably gonna be one of the bad teams of the league this year, along with the Dolphins and a few others in the bangles.
The name of you, Dwayne Haskins, should be out there.
Um, it's probably gonna be one of those situations where, you know, case Keenum gets a time kind of like with Fitz Magic Ryan Fitzpatrick in Miami.
Let the young guy come in.
Could have developed, and he'll be the starter next year.
You know that very bizarre team in Washington, D.
C, um, sign Alex Smith to a ton of money and his leg just completely shatters.
So he's fighting just us fighter.
You still like First off, live a healthy life and then walk again.
So their whole team, you know, they were planning for four years of Alex Smith.
Now they have case Keenum.
It's the starter Twin.
Haskins is the backup.
Askins is the future of that team.
They're keeping him out for now.
Um, then beating the Eagles.
Probably one of the bigger upsets of the week.
So thanks, straight up pick.
I don't know spread.
This is a tricky one, because it's almost a double digit spread, which I 10 the shy away from a weak one.
But taking the Eagles in this one, which gets me to my favorite game.
Obviously, I'm taking the Browns just to be transparent.
I may or may not have taken the Browns almost every came in there one in 15 ano and 16 seasons.
I have to, but this time over 90% of people are taking him, so I'm fine with that.
They should win.
They're nearly a touchdown favorite.
Last time I checked, which is crazy because the Browns have 11 time week once since I came back was 2004.
They did tie last year, but that doesn't count as a way of unfortunate half away.
But I also have a loss.
So taking the Browns, I mean, the victory fridges were on sale today, which was very cool.
Very cool to see people lining up.
I saw someone was there at 4 30 in the morning downtown to get and make victory for his fridge.
Presented by mixing my words the Miz in my head.
Um, of course, professional wrestler and big Browns fan.
The Miz was there kind of.
The master of ceremonies was in Cem Goofy fake victory fridge commercials.
So you gotta go browns.
I can't imagine anyone outside of Tennessee is taking the Titans because the Browns are America's seen that as they should be.
So if you don't like the brands, you don't matter According to Freddie Kitchens.
Uh, I want to show that picture.
I'm all in a Browns mindset now.
Eh, Uh, very excited.
It's weird with them because you're so used to them being so bad.
Is it weird for me to pick a week? One? They've been there 1 19 and one. I think it is.
Since coming back, they have a I had a new quarterback starting in season opener for forever.
Basically, they've had, like, several years where there's a repeat.
Um course was Tyronn Taylor last year.
Before that, Um, the likes of Josh McCown.
Robert Griffin, The third on the field number one Rg three was the starter.
I was like, Oh, man, we have rg three now.
We might be good.
Um, not exactly.
I'm terrible going against Carson wants the Eagles not to bring a flashback.
So back to the pics.
Minute Brown's rabbit hole Next game.
Rams at Panthers in Carolina.
Of course, Jared Goff just got a monster extension this year or today, I should say, Carolina's aware team, they usually go really good.
Really van and just ah, year to year there's 79 Band Year was last year, so maybe this year they turn it around.
I still hesitate to put too much faith in them because Cam Newton trying to keep him healthiest I was an issue.
Although the CBS they have eight experts in their pickup, five went Panthers.
Interesting, of course, The Rams air coming off a Super Bowl season.
General appearance at a wind, of course, but predicting some sort of decline and next year from her this year for McVeigh and the Rams.
I think there may be dominant again.
They're absolutely stacked with talent.
You should be more motivated more than ever.
After losing the Super Bowl, the defense played great, Really.
The offense, I mean, got outsmarted, which is fine.
It was against Bill balance checks, huh? There's no reason why they shouldn't march in the Carolina on the road and just easily take care of business.
For me, this is an easy pick.
I'm surprised so many experts are taking the Panthers, which gets me to my first upset pick.
Yeah, I'm another picture in our of Roman favorites Buffalo in New York.
New York Jets spread the dress or three point favorites, so probably just cause they're at home.
Um, so I was checking out of the roster here, so I ran him. Note.
Um, bills and chance bills have a weird schedule work, by the way.
I do believe that they are at the Jets and then at the Giants.
So their first free game four games are technically in New York.
There? Well, I guess, Yeah.
In the New York area.
Your Count Jersey nearby.
So they're at the Jets and at the Giants, both of the same stadium.
They're at home against the Bangles at home against Patriots.
I think the Bills could easily go to into in that stretch.
I did cover the bills last year.
Happened from February 2018.
Until this Jim, I think they're gonna I think they're gonna be decent.
Um, I know that they're probably at best 297 team every year.
I'm since Jim Kelly left.
I don't see why they can't be the Jets.
The Jets are a weird team.
They got lady on Bell.
He got less than he wanted and probably could have got.
Not probably would have gotten in Pittsburgh.
Adam Gates with his crazy eyes like this, the press conference looking around.
Um, he's kind of a weirdo, that is, I didn't do with his game planning, but he liked. Tried the trade.
Belle. They got him.
Sam Darnold back in the year. Two.
How good is he? There's comparisons between him and Baker. Mayfield.
I think Baker's overwhelmingly better, and that's not just at being a Browns fan.
That's Donald has turned over interests.
First Career Pass was a pick. Six.
Did look better.
Last year's I mean this year.
One on, to be fair, that first game.
They also what? The Lions, too.
You kind of move past it.
But pick wise, I'm taking the bills.
I think Josh Allen has the potential.
He has a huge arm, but he can also run the ball, too.
They got rid of LaShawn McCoy.
They just cut him.
He's in Kansas City now, so they kind of don't have the focus.
I'm giving him the ball, Frank or, um, it's now there with Chris Average as well.
I think I think of a decent once again.
The Lexx of Robert Foster, John Brown, Cole Beasley probably jump off the page to most fans around the country.
I'm used to the names of her.
Pamela, Um, all have potential.
None of them are big, deep threats, but it's a It's a road game, but they're not going too far.
They always have a chip on their shoulder cause they're the Bills they have.
Ed Oliver, on the defensive line, is gonna wreck opposing offensive lineman.
I think he'll make a huge impact.
Get to Donald early and often.
Take the Bills Week one.
But I paused before because I was looking up.
I was looking at the scores and a Raiders tweet popped up about their depth chart.
And I see that Nathan Peterman went on I r.
Because I knew the Raiders have four.
Had four quarterbacks under 53 which made me laugh.
Um, where's Derek are? My client is shown Kaiser.
They picked up and then thrown Peterman on the I. R.
I was like if they carry four quarterbacks ever the most Jon Gruden move of all time, you can't.
We're carrying 40 or 53 we have ah, six linemen, ridiculous and Centris that they have four, so they have Derek Carr's a starter, and then they have Mike Lemon, Nathan Peterman and a shell cancer.
They have basically three failed backups and poor Derek Carr, who I think was crying in the field last year.
Let's find the crime.
Um, he's getting beat up.
I think Gruden wants MT.
That's a yawn here, really quick.
You're late late streaming life trying to get these evergreen one up evergreen ones up chicken shrimp throughout the day tomorrow.
It's almost midnight here until you know it's exciting when the streamer Young's I need some coffee and drinking water out of my mind So it looks like, uh, I'm a coffee guy, but right now it is just water after some tea in my last dream.
Um, yeah, I'll get to the Raiders when I get to them on their pick, but next pick, easiest one.
This is my eliminator pictures well on espn dot com.
Seattle bangles in Seattle Seahawks Take There's nothing to talk about.
The bangles stink.
They're going to be bad.
Um, I think they might win four games because you got to think not.
They might be the new Browns.
Worse, you know.
Okay, You know, we asked that we have some easy non divisional opponents, but we gotta play Steelers twice.
The Ravens twice now in the Bangles point, they don't play the Browns twice, which they always have.
But now the Browns are obviously wait better.
So it's possible that a one in 516 the division, um, Seahawk should be good.
They just added to take in Clowney.
So that's bad for the Bangles band for every opponent of the Seahawks this year.
But Chloe's gonna kill a Lee dome.
Um, A J Green got hurt when they were practicing in Dayton.
Butterfield, See? Look at them.
They have a lot of injuries, aren't ready.
So during that, limiting our challenge on ESPN or you get to pick your team has to win.
If your team loses, you're done for the year.
Uh, I mean, you still play, but you're not gonna win the pool or win the grand prize.
So But once you pick a team and they win, you advance.
You can't pick that team again.
So I'm going to Seahawks Week one, which I think it's safe.
Probably most teams were playing the Dolphins or the Bangles.
I'll take but think that.
I think that's an easy lock in Seattle.
Seems like one of those boring games trying to think what, like a 31 to 10 31 the 13 game just easy win.
Never in doubt for the Seahawks moving along here.
This is one that completely shifted.
Based on this past week.
Colts and Chargers charges overwhelming favorite, now predicted to be one of the better teams.
12 and four last year, could have had a one seat, and they choke it away.
Um, chief scene.
Obviously jump up Patriots that there, too.
Colts If well, will Branson, CBS to speak of the Colts, by the way.
Jacoby percent isn't a slash, but I think without Andrew luck, they're gonna be six in 10.
Um, Chargers should at least win 10 games.
I mean, based on how they played last year, um, their competition in the West Raiders Chiefs Broncos Bronco should be better with Joe Flacco, but I still don't think they're going to be dominance, so charges should still be pretty good.
The Colts in this one we peek at the spread just out of curiosity.
Six and 1/2 in favor of the church.
Just get a few points for being at home, although their home is not really, um, I could, probably, even even though the Colts are from so far away, the probably be pretty good amount of cold fans of this game.
But every charges from game now is opposing fans, which is not good.
So I think it's an easy pick to go Chargers.
I don't see, you know.
Without Andrew Luck, they're going to be demoralized as much as his head or not.
They are, um that's from the more overwhelming picks of the week.
I mean, that Seahawks and my poor 98% of CBS Chargers 95 Eagles 97 Chiefs 94 Ravens 90 So move along there.
Kind of two lakhs out west in Seattle and then for the Chargers in l.
You get a tricky pig here.
Lions of cardinals.
Are the Cardinals gonna be good with Katherine? Mary? Um, no idea.
He's giving a lot of penalties so far for his snap clap claps stamp.
I said it backwards.
Um He's to be thrown in the fire right away. The Lions.
I don't think they're gonna be very good, but I think they're gonna be colonels.
Week one, Cada Marie's first game.
It's a young team, a lot of rookies at their rookie coach as well.
It's Kliff Kingsbury.
I wouldn't say he's a failed coach, Um, but I don't think he's as good as he's made out to be.
And I could just be me being dumb.
Maybe he turns out to be the next trauma bay.
I think the Cardinals fell into the obsession of he is the next shot.
McVeigh, which I mean, you should look at it like that.
Like, Is he the next Sean McVeigh? Now, is he just a good coach? Cardinals are total mess anyway.
Course hired Steve Wilkes, and they drafted Josh Rosen last year.
Aren, of both of them.
They took Rose in 10th.
They traded them for a second round pick, so they essentially turned.
It gets worse to visit other trades, so but essential throws they turn a number 10 overall, pick into like a number 53.
I think overall pick or something.
That's if I was a Cardinals fan.
I'd be very upset, but they could've taken any one of the 10th pick to take a quarterback on the next year to take a quarterback at once.
In two years, you have a 10 pick and a number one.
Pick two quarterbacks.
You only have one of them.
I could have drafted a franchise.
Linemen, receiver, linebacker.
Some of the build around for 10 15 years.
You take a quarterback, you trade and turn into a second round pick.
That is all time.
Bad GM decision making.
But I mean, also, they hire coach firearm.
Steve Walks never stood a chance.
He's in Cleveland on very happy that he's here.
Seems like there's intelligent guy way better than crazy. Great. Williams.
Lined up his safety's ah, 50 yards off the ball.
There's a good bleach report Brown's article today, um, about about the Browns.
And during this, Randall made fun, poked fun at, uh, Greg Williams for aligning himself for off the ball like a idiot.
I speak to me rudely, but that's just what it Wasit was idiotic of him.
But my point is, I'm taking the lion's share of the Cardinals I think the Cardinals are going to be bad.
Calamari is kind of growing.
Pains sing with Cliff Kingsbury.
He could try to bring that college offensive. The NFL.
It works with some teams that works with the thing.
A better quarterback.
I like a Lamar Jackson was able to run as well.
Conrad Murray's gonna It's gonna struggle.
Mean Number one picks do Peyton Manning in a rough rookie year maker may feel and a really good one, but I think he's way better than kind of Murray.
That's just me, without seeing more in the NFL a week when I don't think he's gonna lead him the victory, even against kind of a weak Lions team.
So taking the lines, they're moving alone.
Giants and Cowboys.
I don't know who the Cowboys were gonna be this year, still waiting to get Elliot back.
But even without Zeke, I still think they're capable.
Team, um, play without having been in the past.
The Giants are obviously still started.
So with him as the quarterback, I'm gonna go cowboys in this one.
I mean, they have move on from Zeke, not saying they should just forget about it for a second.
They got town, that Prescott.
I don't think it's a good as Jerry Jones thinks he is, but obviously Jerry Jones really wants to be like, Look at this guy.
I found I'm a great great G N.
Let me give a ton of money At the same time, Dak Prescott has had success.
So based on how contracts are handed out and say he's earned it, he's in the dollar amount.
But based on the market itself and say he has Giants.
Daniel Jones is gonna be out there before we know it, which will be interesting because of the reaction when he was drafted.
Expert picks by CBS.
For the Cowboys.
We're talking to spread, UM seven for the Cowboys.
I'm sure there's plenty of takes time, this all in favor of the Cowboys.
I just I think the Giants are gonna be banned until they move on from Ella.
You're talking about a team traded Odell Beckham, Uh, because they had issues with, like his personality.
It's funny because they get they sign into a huge deal and they trade him and Browns fans like Oh my God, we have Odell Beckham in the whole NFL world was going.
The Browns are gonna be great because they have Odo back up.
The Giants had a and gave him away for Jibril Peppers.
Go over really happy withdrew bell peppers.
Former first round pick.
Okay, trade us a generational one receiver in his prime because you don't like how he fits in your culture.
Dumbest thing I've ever seen.
They're gonna be bad.
Cowboy should smoke in week one.
And in Dallas, too.
So we're moving on from that one.
It's other upset pick, but I don't think is really an upset, per se.
It's kind of a toss up, but I'm just going off.
Um well, the lines even.
I guess so is going off CBS percentages of picks.
40 niners of bucks.
You know, Jimmy, Grandpa looked a little rough in the preseason, but then he came out said sometimes he throws into coverage on purpose.
Bold play, Jimmy.
Um, I'm going 40 Niners.
I saw the Browns just destroy the bucks in the preseason.
Which, of course, it is the preseason.
But the box seemed like another bad team.
They have to move on from Jameis.
Winston, You don't really have a run game.
The defense is not looking great.
Um, I just I don't see them doing well at all.
Um, until, like a security move on from Jameis Winston, them of the Titans are two teams in kind of weird scenarios.
Um, with Mariana for the Titans, of course.
Will be in Cleveland week one.
Um, and then Winston in Tampa, You know, Are you gonna keep these guys? You invested high picks and them both, but it was years ago now, but Winston hasn't done much in Tampa.
He's also kind of Ah, not good guy off the field.
Not the same with Mario.
Um, but just don't see them.
Doing what Bruce Arians came back out of retirement to coach them.
Ever See, I don't think he was an option in Cleveland.
Probably where he wanted to end up.
I wouldn't blame him for that.
Um, but this one, like I said, the CBS percentages It's 4900 dogs.
You can disregard pretty much everything about their season last year for 12 record.
Oh, neat road record.
I think they're gonna be a lot better with Jimmy Garoppolo and I think Week one, a big win can gonna prove to the NFL world that you can kind of count on them to be better than people think.
Still very improvement, of course.
Got some good cash, um, with the 40 Niners.
But I think I'll prove himself.
I think he'll show he's there for a reason.
Kyle Shanahan still out there, obviously, as the coach doing well.
Um, smart guy should just run all over, pass all over the box.
So for me, that's an easy pick.
It's a toss up on the line, but, I mean, if it's a toss up in it, kind of, ah, favors the road to you.
Think is the home team should get some points.
Um, moving along three more games.
Pittsburgh at New England, I took New England.
I took it as a no brainer, but sort of the CBS experts.
They have a eight for eight taking the path.
I mean, I think the Steelers, you're still gonna be good this year.
Better off the spirit.
As much as I hate him being a Cleveland fan in just a I don't like him as a person.
Um, I think we'll be good, but this is the Patriots were talking about Week one in New England.
Seems easy to me.
Should be a good game.
But I mean, people said, I don't know if people outside of Pittsburgh would trust the Steelers toe win this one.
I certainly don't think they they stand a chance, but not a great one wouldn't say so.
To me, that's an easy one into the CBS pickers as well.
Aside from the experts, 87% New England.
I mean, that's a Sunday night game.
No Antonio Brown or leaving on Belle for Pittsburgh.
I think that's I think Pittsburgh fans are underestimating the ones we're like, Yeah, I'm glad they're gone. They were distractions.
Well, there also probably Hall of Fame football players.
Then you don't like their personalities.
I get it with Antonio Brown.
It's kind of a weirdo.
I'm a lady on Belle.
They should have paid him.
Should have kept him, although he probably should have accepted the money, too.
So can I, uh, all around? All right.
Like I said, I think that's an easy one.
Um, same with the next one.
Houston and New Orleans New Orleans, 96% by CBS Pickers, Experts, a freight New Orleans Texans 11 fine last year to Shana Watson, of course.
Still there, noted Avian Clowney, which I think will make an impact but not a humongous impact.
I don't think it's gonna make us lose four extra games or something crazy like that.
When the Saints I should have been a Super Bowl team last year.
13 and three. Dominant.
You're going to New Orleans.
It's gonna be nuts.
You, I mean, returning a very talented team in New Orleans.
Still ageless, ageless wonder.
Kind of like Tom Brady.
And it's one of those games, too.
It's like the one before this.
Pittsburgh at New England.
You know Pittsburgh in Houston, both playoff team playoff caliber teams this year, too.
But New England, New Orleans on their own tear, kind of like the Chiefs as well in the Rams last year.
I think the Saints come in should be NFC favorites this year.
Let me no reason why they wouldn't be huge favorites in this game, which they are.
See that as an easy one, and that's the first Monday night game because There's two, of course in week one.
Which brings us to our final game, Denver and Oakland.
This is a tricky one for me because Denver did it.
But how good is he gonna be there? You know, a lot of times you think of Super Bowl win.
You know, he did go nuts in the playoffs that year, but that was years ago.
I was in my first year college back then.
Way back then, Um, watching the Super Bowl in my door.
Oakland Now with Antonio Brown, maybe I'm just have the high of the hard knocks.
I think they should take this one at home.
It should be a good game.
I think my main thing with this one, Joe Flacco, needs to prove that the Ravens were dumped to let him go.
But my think thinking is, you know, they put in Lamar Jackson last year. Lamar Jackson.
But look, we're gonna run this rookie over.
This guy's done so much for us.
So why does that happen? Is there something wrong with flag? Um, this is one of those true week, one games where you go.
We have This is one where we don't know what these teams are.
We got to see how good they're truly gonna be.
Um I mean, you can't tell that totally from week one, but the Raiders, you know, playoff team in the past, you have to deal with all injuries, which is very unfortunate.
Kind of ruin their playoff appearance.
Jon Gruden, though, is he the death curse for this team? Um, he seems like the kind of guy who have started to talk about it earlier, but almost doesn't wanna have a good quarterback.
He always wants to be like I brought Made me Nathan Peterman. Great.
But when he got too good, I made the show kinds of great again.
Um, but with Micmac and everything, there should be some structure.
You mean they're four and 12.
Last year, total garbage, but they did trade Khalil Mack.
Uh, a lot of moves is sure that actually brought some talent in there on hard knocks.
Everyone's got a close and personal look at it, but this one of the Broncos worked him.
I wouldn't be surprised.
I would just take up.
Then that'll give me more info going forward.
Okay? while the Broncos are probably gonna be a little better and the Raiders mean that's good, Um, so that's all my picks worked through that pretty fast.
I'm 47 minutes, so it's not too fast, but I'll give a quick run them again, so I'm taking in order.
Bears, Ravens, Vikings, Chiefs, Eagles, Browns Rams.
Bill's Upset pick.
Seahawks Eliminator PICK.
Chargers Lions, Cowboys 40 Niners.
Patriots Saints Raiders.
123456 road team Straight up.
My upset pick his Bills over the Jets.
Um 40 Niners Kind of an upset pick over the box for really After that, if you think Arizona should be favored that my Lions pick us a little bit of an upset, but none other than a lot of over woman favorites.
But once again in a week one, A lot of people are going off.
What happened last year, when really you gotta be looking ahead and understanding the weak one.
That's when you start to find out.
It's even the 1st 3 weeks.
You start to find out who's who what teams air regressing, what's gonna happen there.
So that's all my picks.
That's the straight up additional will do a spread edition, likely tomorrow.
Which would be today technically, because that's Wednesday.
It's 12 02 in the eastern time zone.
