    I accidentally clicked Raiders and Texans as my worries, but I meant HOUSTON and TAMPA BAY. The main reason for that is because they are road games. If you can split road games, and hold court at home, You'll be fine in this league.

    My breakdown...

    Atlanta: Should be a win. We'll stop what little rushing attack they have...and that allow us to defend the passing game...gotta stop that Roddy White ;)

    Tampa Bay: After week 1 I thought these guys were gonna be crap this year. The last 2 weeks they've looked much better. Always tough to beat a good D, with loud crowd on the road.

    Houston: If they still have injuries to major players, we may catch a break here. Again, this is going to become a tough divisional foe, and playing them on the road for this game gives them the advantage. Split TB/Houston and head home to face Oakland 4-2.

    Oakland: These guys have only beat Cleveland...and even then, just barely. Lost to Denver, barely, who is down this year, and Detroit, pretty badly. We all saw the Lions true colors last week. We'll have a better idea of what they are after their next few games against Miami, SD, and KC. But what REAL improvements have they made since last year's 2-14 campaign? Josh McCown?

    Carolina: Fairly one dimensional. Foster had a nice game last week, but they struggle if you can shut down Steve Smith...IF we can do that(pressuring an average QB will help) that's a win at home.

    Jacksonville: I don't think I'm the only one who thinks we should have won that game by more than 3. Play them again, this time on the home turf, I see it as a win as well.

    Split the Road games, let's call it 7-2.

    Steve Smith is certainly not the panther's one dimension. The panthers at least want to be a running team first. They just happen to have an amazing playmaker at WR who takes the pressure off. The carolina game should be interesting, we'll see two similar philosophies collide.

    You are right that Carolina is a run first offense. But I think that Steve Smith is the piece that makes that possible. He keeps D's from stacking the line and stopping two good, but not terrific backs in Foster and Williams.

    Also no arguement that Fox and Fisher manage a game the same way.

    If we can get forfeits before 8pm tonight, we may still make it to 8-1.
