Narry,

The only reason i took GB was i want too see ifn Kap,can pickup from the 2nd half of last years season where he left off.

Dallas is 6-0 all time in opening games against the Giants. The Giants are 4-0 playing in Jerry's palace. Who will get their streak broken? More than most of the matchups there is no real consensus on this game.

Well I picked the 49ers for a variety of reasons. And like I said in the Seattle @ Carolina game, it was a hunch I have had since the schedules came out.

In tonight's season opener. Manning will have to have one of his greatest games ever in order to beat the Ravens. Not because Baltimore is so great. It is just that Denver is going to have to be playing catchup all night long.

GO PATRIOTS.....!!

What an easy way to start the season. The only teams to have it easier in Week #1 are Indianapolis and Tampa Bay.

Narry ... we really should try to have one "picks" thread... we can alternate weeks if this works for you. Every year I start it and then you duplicate. it is redundant. Next week you can start the weeks picks if you like, but lets keep it to one thread. simplicity is beauty.
