Don's Crystal Ball Week 3 League Picks

Here's my pick for tonight's game, the rest will be up Saturday at the latest.

New York Giants at Carolina Panthers 1.5 Ovr/Und 52
UPSET OF THE WEEK


This is pretty simple. The Giants have had back-to-back games when they've been dominated for most of the game, just to try to make a comeback in the end. In week one it did not work, but they managed to achieve it the following week. They have big problems with their secondary, and they will be without two of their premier players: Hakeem Nicks and Ahmad Bradshaw. The Panthers are coming from a victory against the division rival Saints. It's a short week, the Giants have key injuries, they have trouble getting into a roll early in games, and the Panthers have reestablished their running game. I'll take the home team.

Straight: CAR
Spread: CAR
Ovr/Und: UND

I know It's been a brutal two week start this year, but I'm not the only one. Taking my own league as an example out of 36 members only 2 are over 60%. It's been a weird and brutal start.

Starting the week off well I see. Whatever you do, don't quit your day job.

Re: Don's Crystal Ball Week 3 League Picks

I don't get why people lambast this guy. He consistently puts out his picks, and does reasonable research. I get he's a dallas fan, but he loves football (i gather) like we do, and sparks discussion on some games. Just sayin' if you don't want to read it, don't open the thread. Not really a hard concept.

Agreed.

Back to the thread topic, I saw a stat after tonight's game that after two weeks, 6 teams were 2-0, 6 teams were 0-2, and the rest of the teams were 1-1. I wonder if we're going to have an up and down season for many teams.

Right now, the only contender that I see is San Franscisco, and even that might change. Tough year for picks.

And only one 0-2 team in the NFC (New Orleans). Very even league, and what might be a sure thing one week seems like an iffy the next.

I agree right now only SF, and maybe Houston, seem like sure bets, but I am guessing that by October teams will start shaking out more clearly.

Re: Don's Crystal Ball Week 3 League Picks

Keep making predictions Don, I'm just going opposite of everything you say. You are actually 100% wrong most of the time. That is good! Please give me the rest of your Week 3 picks so I can call my guy and do the opposite. Its like a Seinfield episode!

Exactly. There are plenty of chances in this forum to bash the Cowboys' fan. Bashing for the sake of bashing gets old and people can take that to other forums if they want.
