So now is it going to be "Kyle Wilson Island" for the Jets?


They may have problems.

Well, I think it's the Kyle Wilson Peninsula.

Plus both teams were not in the playoffs last year so I;m not exactly sure what made the Cards win a upset when the Eagles squeaked by two teams two weeks in a row. Instead of a upset I would say it's a was loss that was long overdue since they have been losing in the 4th qtr of every game this season.

Yup they sure did. It was stated on the radio this morning that in Vick's last 16 starts, he has 20 turnovers


So that lets you know right there he is not a SB QB

I don't know why everything thinking the Cheifs beating the Saints is any big surprise.....imo Jacksonville beating the Colts is a bigger surprise then the Chiefs beating the Saints. Face it, this Saints team just is not very good this year, they have no identity without Payton and a team that has an interim coach filling in for an interim coach (first time I've ever seen/heard that) will definitely have struggles. Saints will be lucky to finish 6-10 this year. Drew Brees can't play defense as well, and that defense is beyond atrocious as the Chiefs and Jamal Charles showed yesterday.

It was a surprise because the Saints were winning all day at home and the chiefs had yet to show this season they had any kind of offense.

What I didn't do in that post was to include two words here- "Vegas odds."

There are a variety of Vegas oddsmakers online I take a look at just for kicks, such as Picks and Parlays, Touthouse, Las Vegas Line. The one that I generally see in most newspaper dailies that I've read over the years is Glantz Culver. Here is Glantz Culver picks for week 3 regarding the teams I noted in post #38.

Philadelphia opened with a 4 point pick over Arizona. It closed at 3 1/2.
New Orleans opened with a 10 point pick over Kansas City. It closed at 9.
Pittsburgh opened with a 4 1/2 point pick against Oakland. It closed at 3 1/2.
San Francisco was a 6 point pick against Minnesota. It closed at 6 1/2.

Oh ok. I;m not sure why Vegas loves picking the Eagles when they have yet to cover a spread this season. I'm guessing Vegas will favor the Eagles by 6 this week against the Giants. If they factor in the Giants road play versus the Eagles overall play, the spread should be no higher than 3 pts

Right now, the Seahawks have EIGHT (8!) sacks against Aaron Rogers and the Pack in just the first half!
