Hello fellow Sharks!
From now until Week 17, we’ll be giving our insight as to which games are the games to watch each week. This is a heavy burden, as we know a lot of you have Sunday Ticket, too much free time, and an addiction to premium brews like Natty Lite or Yuengling. A lot of you know us from our other articles, the Betbot, or the Last Row, or our myriad posts in the Tank. We’re just like you, though. We love a good football game, no matter who’s playing.
Here we go with our Week One picks!!
Oakland @ New England:
Number 37..>Freddie Mitchell can't quite remember his name. Thanks Freddie. Can he make the leap this year? The Falcons need to win this one.
Philadelphia @ Atlanta: OK, you know us, we’re Eagles fans. We’ll try not to be biased towards them as we go forward. This is a rematch of the NFC Championship Game, however…Except it’s in September, in a dome and without the below zero wind chills, and it doesn’t mean nearly as much to either team. Don’t get us wrong, it means a lot; but it’s not an elimination game. The Falcons’ fans get loud and get rowdy, expect a House of Pain type setting for the Eagles here, with a raucous Hotlanta crowd. We even think the Dirty Birds may beat the Better Birds here, even with an inferior QB. In the long run, the Eagles are better, but an emotional Falcons team may beat the Eagles and give hope to other NFC teams for a week.
Dallas @ San Diego: We were tempted to go BALT/IND here, but then we realized that would involve Kyle Boller. For the time being, we’ll hold off on recommending any game involving Boller. San Diego was a playoff team last year, and if they had a decent gameplan versus the Jets, they would have played the Pats in the AFC Championship Game. Unfortunately, they are coached by Marty Schottenheimer, so they failed in the post season. Even without
Drew is playing for a contract, whether he is with the Chargers or not next year.
Until next week, keep watchin’, eatin’ and drinkin’. We’ll keep judgin’ .
