I haven't made my pick yet. Want to look at some games first. Had a good week at pick 'em after a 10-6 start. Missed on San Diego and forgot to mark the Miami/Indy game. Got the rest of them. (yes, I did pick Seattle)
I just can't ever pick against the niners! If I were a betting man...I'd be broke! LOL! I can't even pick against KC because I respect Smith and Reid too much. As objective as I try to be...my heart is firmly attached to my sleeve! My first week was a disaster...this week should be 11-5...a huge improvement.
I love the niners. Been my team since I was a kid. I also fancy myself a football fan so I try to pick the team I believe will win. In this case, I just didn't think the 49ers had a chance in Seattle with such a weakness at WR.
I will pick against Smith if I think they will lose. However, at this point I just don't think anybody has a real good handle on how good that team can be. They have a lot of talent on that team but it will take them a while to learn how to play to win with confidence. The Dallas game may prove a critical turning point. It was a team that many picked to win but the Chiefs pretty much had the upper hand much of the time. Their defense is pretty darn good. If they stay injury-free, they can surprise some people. I picked them to be 9-7 but expected Dallas to win. 10-8?
