On Sunday, the Miami Dolphins players will be enjoying their last official day before their bye week fun comes to an end.  The Dolphins players have been off since Wednesday afternoon and have been making the most of their much deserved time away from football.  Reggie Bush and Sean Smith headed back home to California. Anthony Fasano was on the sidelines of the Notre Dame game yesterday. Hopefully when all of the Dolphins players return, they’re healthy and focused on winning football games.
For us here at PhinNation, there are no bye weeks,especially for our Pitiful Picks.  Last week we went 2-2, making us 12-9 on the season so far.  this week, we’ll pick 4 games as usgh (Les Brown vocab), but won’t have a Dolphins game to pick.  Instead, we’ll pick the 2 other games featuring AFC East contenders.  Here we go:
Green Bay Packers -5 over St. Louis Rams
I don’t think anyone thought the Packers would be 3-3 right now. Let’s face it, they could be 5-1 if not for a crazy comeback by the Colts and the most controversial replacement refs call of all time against the Seahawks.  The Packers got their groove back last week, crushing the previously unbeaten Texans, in Houston. Aaron Rodgers threw for 5 touchdowns and the Packers looked like the Packers. After watching the Rams up close last week against the Dolphins, I don’t think they are in the same league. Yes, their defense looked good, but their offense is not going to keep pace with the Pack.  Packers 27 Rams 17  (cont’d on page 2, click below)
