Week 2 Picks:

We're out of town this weekend and really haven't had a chance to write our picks column. Therefore, with apologies, all you're getting here is the picks with a quip or two. No much deft analysis or cutting wit. Sorry.

PACKERS (-13) v. Bills

Trent Edwards will have to throw the ball downfield to win. He only managed to do that last week when a Miami CB and S screwed up and blew the coverage.
BTPC pick: GB laying the 13.

Dolphins (+5.5) v. VIKINGS

Homer pick? Uh...yeah. But Henne was better than his stats last week and Dansby can cover the only guy Favre seems to throw to: Shiancoe.

BTPC pick: UPSET SPECIAL! We don't need the points, we don't want the points, but we're taking the points. Dolphins getting the 5.5

FALCONS (-6.5) v. Cards

At what point do we start questioning whether or not Matt Ryan is actually good? having said that, we all agree Derek Anderson is not.

BTPC pick: Falcons laying the 6.5.

BENGALS (+2.5) v. Ravens

At what point do we all acknowledge that Pro Bowl Carson Palmer is not coming through that door?

BTPC pick: Ravens laying the 2.5

Chiefs (+2) v. BROWNS

The Chiefs won't have that awesome crowd behind them this week. But they've got way more weapons than Cleveland

BTPC pick: Chiefs taking the 2.

Bears (+7.5) v. COWBOYS

Julius Peppers has to be licking his chops right about now.

BTPC pick: Bears getting the 7.5.

TITANS (-5) v. Steelers

Steelers are missing their starting NT. Not good when visiting the CJ-Vince show.

BTPC pick: Titans laying the 5.

PANTHERS (-3.5) v. Bucs

We've got absolutely nothing on this one. Wait...nope. Sorry.

BTPC pick: Bucs geting the 3.5.

LIONS (+6.5) v. Eagles

God is dog spelled backwards. Vick...karma is bitch.

BTPC pick: Lions getting 6.5.

BRONCOS (-3.5) v. Seahawks

Most annoying pretty boy coach bowl.

BTPC pick: Broncos laying the 3.5

RAIDERS (-3.5) v. Rams

The Raiders have attributed their poor performance last week to being to cocky. The Raiders. Too cocky. Why?

BTPC pick: Raiders laying the 3.5.

Jaguars (+7) v. CHARGERS

We don't get the criticism of Rivers for chewing people out. Then again, we're Dan Marino fans. But 7 is a lot of points

BTPC pick: Jags getting the 7.

Texans (-3) v. REDSKINS

Classic let down game. Are the Texans for real, in that they don't fall prey to it?

BTPC pick: Skins getting 3.

Giants (+5) v. COLTS

If the Colts D doesn't improve, Peyton Manning's arm is gonna fall off.

BTPC pick: Giants getting 5.

Pats (-3) v. JETS

Please let the Pats destroy the Jets, just to watch Gotham implode.

BTPC pick: Pats laying 3.

Saints (-5) v. NINERS

When you're lying about why you look so bad, things are not good.

BTPC pick: Saints laying the 5.
