And I'm out.

Lots of upsets this week and even more near upsets.

Well, exit the Dissenter stage right. Stupid Redskins have the gall to play well against a favorite. Ugh.

Raiders need to be careful themselves or they might get the primetime jinx attached to them just like the Bengals and Redskins. Their last couple of primetime games have been real stinkers from what I remember.

Yep... much truth in that.

Excessive attention and general overkill by talking heads and the BRIGHT LIMELIGHT can make for glossed-over eyeballs, false starts, inaccurate passes, interceptions, fumbles, incorrect positioning, poor snaps, poor holds, poor kicks, happy feet QBs, stumbling RBs, overly-enthusiastic defenders, overwhelmed rookies, screamy-meamy fans, et al, etc...

It's true that the above could apply to regular games as well, but prime time seems to make everything louder and brighter and larger than life!

Tough week for survivor picks. Nothing screams out to me as "this team will win". I'll roll the dice on Seattle because they are tough at home and Indy isn't very good.

Locking in on the Seattle Seahawks.

Week 1 - Buffalo Bills
Week 2 - Arizona Cardinals
Week 3 - Green Bay Packers
Week 4 - Seattle Seahawks
