The Victory Formation:
On Sunday Big D joked that if he couldn’t do odds on favorite some week he’d have me do it. I know I like to pick at his picks every week and it is much easier to criticize someone else’s picks than to put your own out there. So I thought I’d do my own version this week and let D mock my picks and see how they stack up with his version later in the week.
Cleveland at Pittsburgh (-14). I generally like the home team in night games and Cleveland is pretty much a bad team at this point.
Indianapolis at Baltimore (-17). Indy just got a big back door cover against the Pats with new franchise qb Dan Orlovsky. I think they’ll do it again.
Houston at Cincinnati (-3). Vegas is way overreacting to Houston’s quarterback situation. They have a great defense and running game, even when they had Schaub they weren’t throwing it around a lot. I honestly don’t know why Houston isn’t at least a tossup in this one. I’ll take the 3 points.
Kansas City at NY Jets (-9). I can’t back the Chefs on the ro...

We spoke of moral victories in the Huskies final game of the 2011 season, a 35-27 loss to the Bearcats in Cincinnati Saturday. The Colts, annually one of the NFL's best teams suddenly relegated to bottom-of-the-barrel status without their all-world quarterback Peyton Manning, have not only gone winless through 12 games, they have experienced very few moral victories, too.
Judging by Patriots head coach Bill Belichick's tone at the postgame news conference, he wasn't too happy with his team's performance in the fourth quarter against the Colts. Why should he be? For that matter, why should anyone? Yes, they gave up just three points until the fourth quarter, which would then qualify said fourth quarter as "garbage time." But by...
Hot- Start'em if ya Got'emQB – Rex Grossman – Yes the QB with more Gross in his name and game than ‘sexy’ is the QB start’em this week. I wanted to go Flacco but this matchup for Rex is too sexy! Dan Orlovsky just threw for 350 yards against the Patriots, so why can’t Rex? I figure with no Fred Davis and Trent Williams, the TE will now be blocking on the line...
