QUOTE(#5):

I pretty much agree with all those picks Alaska, with the exceptoion of the Bears game!

yeah that one could go either way, I just have more faith in the Bucs as a team than the Bears. I do not trust that offensive line for the Bears. Also, this pick may be influenced by a certain dislike for the Bears, lol

Bears @ Buccaneers- Bucs have to realize that this is their opportunity to make the wild card .. beating the Saints was HUUGE and Atlanta hasn't looked good this season .. They need to keep winning. Meanwhile Bears may not have Devin Hester .. that's a huge blow to this team.
Chargers @ Jets -- Jets know they have to step it up
Seahawks[b] @ Browns
Redskins @ [b]Panthers
- i know its early but in this tough division I don't think Panthers have a chance this year. however there's nothing scarier then a team with nothing to lose.
Falcon @ Detroit - disappointed they couldn't get the win last week .. but this Detroit team's for real, they'll be hard to stop coming off a loss.
Texans @ Titans -- Texans are angry coming off a loss, Titans are fresh after the bye .. this will be a great one, but I think the Texans will pull this one out
Broncos @ Miami- no idea how Tebow's going to look. if he plays well, Denver wins
Chiefs @ Raiders -- Should be close
Steelers @ Cardinals
Rams @ Cowboys -- poor Rams. I hope that I'm wrong but Rob Ryan's defense should give the Rams offense a lot of trouble.
Packers @ Vikings - I'd love for the Vikings to come away with an upset.
Colts @ Saints[b] - Still not sold on how bad the Colts REALLY are. We'll see about how close this one is.
[b]Ravens
@ Jaguars - I'm rooting for the Jags though.

Just like the Atlanta @ Detroit game this game is important just incase they end up tied in the final spot of the wild card race. Look what it did for Green Bay last year.

If Miami wanted to do something significant this season they would make an effort to lose all their games so they can pick Andrew Luck. They would be entitled to the #1 because they have the weaker schedule of the current winless teams Rams, Colts, Dolphins. THeir greatest challenge will be throwing the game against Denver without it being obvious.

Narry,Some teams lose because thier bad [at the time] as what did the LIONS get with a record of 0-16 the next year? because of that record? and did that Player get them too the playoffs?

Detroit had been a terrible team for many a year, so for them to go 0-16 was no big shocker. On the other hand the Colts have gone from winning their division in 2010 to winless in 2011, and no one in Indianapolis seems upset.

One thing that may affect the Lions vs Falcons is that Jahvid Best probably won't play and may be out for the season due to concussions.
