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.


Really?. Well, I think it's a mistake. The Cards need to play Leinart as soon as possible... Warner is the reason they're losing winnable games. His numbers aren't bad, but the fumbles and his lack of mobility are killing them.

Doesn't change the outcome of this game, as you said.

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.


Yeah, this was a toss up. But I think Minny is better than the Jets, and Buffalo lost at home against them, not showing much of anything.

If we gonna talk about football movies... i think Tampa Bays season can be summed up by one performance where Keanau Reeves stands alongside Gene Hackman.

Simms=Tampa Bay=THE REPLACEMENTS

Yeah you did pick them.. but i'm a big believer in that soap opera crap.

I feel Any Given Sunday was a movie based on Oakland Raiders. even though it was set in Miami the uniforms were black PAcino reminded me so much of Tom Flores But Al Davis never had a daughter that hot ( But Cameron Diaz did want to move the team to Los Angelas :)

Yes really. I wanted to see Leinart play too no matter who he was to face. These rookies need to start getting on the field sometime soon. The Vinsanity needs to start up in Tennessee, Leinart should get some playing time during the season, and Cutler should get the nod anytime Plummer falls on his a*s again like the first two games. And above all of that, a 6th round draft choice is getting the start before those guys? That really amazes me...no offense to your Bucs TMC. Their season is done, unless they can bring in some veteran QB. Too bad, they could've got Billy Volek but the Chargers got to him first.

:-o Quite suprised he hasn't replied back to it. Trying to avoid an argument OG? :agrue: It's cool bro, I understand. :mrgreen: But hey, that was a good one TMC with the Waterboy. Just too bad Bobby Bouchere ain't playing LB.

Your spot on Xbaywarrior. Raiders are a cointoss team odds of winning 8-8. It's a shame they lost to the Chargers and Ravens but they are bound to win the next 8 games of the 14 remaining. :)

I didn't want Volek. No way. He wouldn't have made the team a contender (not even for the playoffs) and we would have lost a good pick. We're better off without him.

Although it would be different if, instead of Volek, it were Matt Schaub...

8 of the next 14?. Already drunk, pawno?. :mrgreen:


It could happen, but only if you had to play the Bucs like 12 of those 14 games. :mrgreen:

Yeah, I was hoping he'd get to start for a team sometime soon. The Falcons have a solid backup for Vick in him.

Funny thing is that the backup is better than the starter (as a qb)... Seriously, Schaub would start for half the teams in the league, and he's stuck behind Ron Mexico. :banghead:

Well in terms of throwing accuracy. He's a much better passer than Vick, just not a much better scrambler which everyone would agree on.

I'm going to change my picks up a little bit because I just looked through the teams that are going up this week. I'm with the Vikings over the Bills because I'm more sold on Minny's defense than the Bills and with Losman at QB, I'm not too sure how he'll do.

Yeah, that's why I picked the Vikings. If the defenses are similar, go with the less mistake-prone offense.

Yeah, I was thinking that too. I don't like Losman's future at all. He's going to be a bust in my books.

J. P. Loss-man... what were the Bills thinking when they drafted someone with that name?

btw, the JP stands for what?. Just Pathetic? :mrgreen:

Arizona at Atlanta - Way to take out their frustration on the Cards. My Pick: ATL, Result: 32-10 ATL

Dallas at Tennessee. - Titans suck and Vince needs to realize this is the NFL. And what the hell was that about Haynesworth? You're a bigger jerk than T.O. was in Philly. Could've hurt the man more severe than you'd think dumba*s. My Pick: DAL, Result: 45-14

Indianapolis at N.Y. Jets - What an ending. Loved the whole game. The Jets fought. But going for it on 4th down was a bad choice by Mangini. My Pick: IND, Result: 31-28 IND

Miami at Houston - Oh gah, didn't expect this. Miami is doing horrible. What a loss by Miami and what a win by the Texans. The way Culpepper is playing, he makes the Vikings look like they're on the winning side of that trade. My Pick: MIA, Result: 17-15 HOU

Minnesota at Buffalo - Was originally going with Buffalo. Don't I feel moded. My Pick: MIN, Result: 17-12 BUF

New Orleans at Carolina - I was correct. Smith brings so much to the Panthers offense. But hey, the Saints never let up and they had a chance to have an emotional break down. But they didn't and I'm proud of that from their squad. My Pick: CAR, Result: 21-18 CAR

San Diego at Baltimore - Great game, it just didn't end the right way for Rivers. McNeil broke down and the Ravens got the GW sack. My Pick: SD, Result: 16-13 BAL

San Francisco at Kansas City - Hey I can be bias too, the Niners are my team regardless of the score. Bad day for Smith and the Niner D. My Pick: SF, Result: 41-0 KC

Detroit at St. Louis - Bulger did a great job today. Marinelli is going to have one long season in Detroit. My Pick: STL, Result: 41-34 STL

Cleveland at Oakland - Great 1st half, miserable 2nd. Why even go for it on 4th down with like 11-12 minutes left in the game? The Raiders really know how to stink up the place. My Pick: CLE, Result: 24-21 CLE

Jacksonville at Washington - Yikes, Saunders did real well coaching this offense to a win. Whoever thought the 'Skins would've took this one. My Pick: JAC, Result: 36-30 WAS in overtime

New England at Cincinnati - Chad Johnson can talk all the trash he wants. But not against Belichick. My Pick: CIN, Result: 38-13 NE

Seattle at Chicago - Way to pressure the Hasslebeck. That's what you call defense. And anyone still have their doubts about Grossman? I'm loving Chicago's chances in the NFC. My Pick: CHI, Result: 37-6 CHI

Green Bay at Philadelphia - Tomorrow. My Pick: PHI, Result: ???

I'm 7-6 so far this week. Bad week for me. Suprising performances by certain teams led to that record.
