The football season’s half over…
We see teams – as always in the NFL – that have weakened. And some that have gotten decent. For three reasons; Injuries, defenses getting better and no real dominant teams.
Only Green Bay is a monster because of Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay’s D is still below average and needs to improve if they want to win it all. The Steelers are tough, but beatable by average or above average teams. The Saints have the offense but little defense thus far. New England is all Tom Brady and has no defense either.
Detroit‘s "lucky charms" have given out. They’re good, not great – a 10-6 team. The Eagles are getting better, but are still shaky. Dallas is better but still losing too much. The Giants are a potential wild card.The Chargers can lock up the west with a win at KC Monday, Oakland is too wounded. Denver is better than you think but not good enough.
The Chiefs have come back, but against horrible teams so we still don’t know if they are decent or poor.
In other words, it’s the up for grabs league.
Nobody can walk all over everybody else except the Packers. Offense has taken over the league with passing being 70% of the game, Green Bay proves this because its running game is very poor, and its defense worse. Still they’re 7-0.
And D-Bowe keeps a bad team like KC in the mix. Without D-Bowe the Chiefs have no wins – he is the offense.
Detroit -3 over Denver
San Diego -3 1/2 over KC Chiefs
New Orleans Saints -13 1/2 over St. Louis Rams
I am still at over 90 % likely best in the nation – how can you do better than that?
My season picks of KC under 7 1/2 wins is now a question mark…due to good luck and Matt not turning ball over, better defense and D-Bowe finally becoming a top 3 NFL reciever – yes he is folks.
Detroit is in good shape at 5-2 to win the over 6 for the season. And Dallas is on target to not win the needed 10 games to go over and beat me, but they are playing better and who knows?
I’m going to my first game Monday Night in a few years.
Will ll wear my Chargers Jacket? Nah. But I do feel that a Chargers win will end the Chiefs hopes of 8 wins or better. So we’ll see.
