I don't know what happens, as we haven't seen him play much, but Gruden just doesn't seem to like the guy. He has given him no chance so far. I'm still wondering why we traded for him.
Anyways, I'm ok with Gradkowski starting. It's not like we're going anywhere, and Rattay won't be here next season, so, at least, we get to see what kind of player the rookie is.
drfrank, should I count you in for the pick'em?... Same picks as xBayAreaWarriorx? (btw, I think we should be able to change picks till saturday, just in case there are injuries or something along the week).
I'd think so also. But like I said before, Gradowski has to play like Kyle Orton and the defense must carry most of the load.

Arizona at Atlanta.- Leinart's first start, behind that O-Line and at Atlanta, who will have to win this one after the poor outing at New Orleans?. Doesn't look good for the Cards
No, Warner is the starter. Green denied the Leinart is starting rumor. Wouldn't matter who starts though, the Cards just don't have the O-Line and defense to keep up with ATL.
TMC wrote:Minnesota at Buffalo.- Battle of defenses... and I think Losman will make more mistakes than Brad Johnson.
I picked Buffalo only because I don't see them losing another game like this. Brad Johnson usually never makes mistakes. He's real smart with the football.
TMC wrote:Cleveland at Oakland.- Another of those games whose outcome changes pending on where it's played. The Browns are tough... in Cleveland and without injuries. Also, Oakland will win against someone this year, won't they?
Don't hold your breath. If the Browns can put up TD's against the Ravens and the Raiders can only do FG's....well we have a problem here. They COULD beat the Niners, but I wouldn't put my hopes so high on that either. The Raider's chance of winning this season is a coin toss. Won't know the outcome until we see the beginning. But under Art Shell, I'd think they would at least win 1-3 games.
Don't hate yourself in the morning... sleep 'til noon.
