Week 4 picks: The 'Pine gets no bye...

Week 4 is upon us. Last week, we went a very disappointing 6-10. Unfortunately, here at the 'Pine, we get no byes. Every week, we've got to bring it. So it's time to buckle down. This week, less worry on being funny and coming up with stuff to write, more emphasis on picking winners.

STEELERS (-1.5) v Ravens
The Steelers can't really go 4-0 without the walking public indecency charge, can they? Seeing as how they are at home and the Ravens let the Browns run all over them, we're thinking they can.

BTPC pick: Ravens getting 1.5

Broncos (+6.5) v TITANS
CJ2K hasn't really looked that great. 6.5 is too much for a Broncos team that doesn't make mistakes.

BTPC pick: Broncos getting 6.5

BROWNS (+3) over Bengals
Cleveland has played some tough football to be in a 0-3 hole. The Bengals overlook them and pay for it.

BTPC pick: Browns getting 3.

PACKERS (-14.5) over Lions
Jahvid Best is a game time decision for Detroit. Because of that, we're gonna go the pack.

BTPC pick: Pack laying 14.5

Panthers (+13.5) over SAINTS
Yes, Pierre Thomas may be out. But the Saints are coming off a L and the Panthers still are starting Jimmy Claussen.

BTPC pick: Saints laying 13.5

FALCONS (-7) over 49ers
At this point, could they make a spread you didn't think the 49ers would not cover?

BTPC pick: Atlanta laying 7.

Seahawks (-1) over RAMS
The Hawks seem to be doing it with smoke and mirrors. Jackson is a game time decision for the Rams.

BTPC pick: Hawks laying 1.

Jets (-5.5) over BILLS
Bills looked tough last week against Pats, managing to put up 30.

BTPC pick: Bills getting 5.5 UPSET SPECIAL!

Colts (-7) over JAGUARS
Del Rio and Garrard are in danger of losing their jobs.

BTPC pick: Colts laying 7.

RAIDERS (+3) over Texans
That crashing sound you heard was the Texans dropping back to earth and AJ is questionable for this one.

BTPC pick: Texans laying 3.

CHARGERS (-8) over Cardinals
Phillip Rivers is headed for a lot of stats and little wins this year. This will be one of them.

BTPC pick: Chargers laying 8.

EAGLES (-5.5) over Redskins
They are actually debating whether or not McNabb will get booed in Philly. Then McNabb is stupid enough to publicly state he hopes it's cheers. Uh...Philly fans booed Santa, D-Nabb. And you ain't bringing any gifts...

BTPC pick: Eagles laying 5.5

GIANTS (-4) over Bears
When is it time to wonder if the Giants are tuning Coughlin out?

BTPC pick: Bears getting 4.

DOLPHINS (+1) over Patriots
Henne one again looked like Marino against the Jets. Against a Pats team with a weak secondary, that should continue

BTPC pick: Phins getting 1.

Last Week: 6-10 Upset Special 1-0
Season to date: 23-22-3 Upset specials 3-0
Career to date: 149-144-11
