OK, it's time for locks of the week again. But before I get to that, I have to defend my boy Jay Cutler, who's not gettin' any love here at adonal obsessed so far. Yeah, we're 2-1 with two thrilling games that Jason Elam had to win for us vs sub par teams. Yeah, Jay Cutler has a 3-4 TD to Int ratio. However, according to cbs.sportsline's NFL player ranker, he is the 9th QB in the league right now. And hey, Jaws said that he was the next Brett Favre. Brett Favre, man!
Ron Jaworski knows what he's talking about, Zorgon
OK, now back to locks of the week. As I promised, 2-0 last week. Please, please, hold your applause. My picks of Baylor and Carolina were strokes of genius I must admit. This brings my record to 2-2 on the year, and it'll be 4-2 after this week. Speaking of this week, my picks are New England to cover (-7) vs Cincinnati on Monday night, and Wisconsin (-7.5) to cover against an over rated Michigan State team.
Come on, don't fail me now
Now for Zorgon. Tough week he had, he took Rice in the points (they got killed) and the Browns over the Raiders (they got timeouted). Though he was able to win this game lock wise, he must have been heart broken for his Browns. He looks for redemption this week, with Syracuse (-2) to cover against Miami of Ohio of America of Earth as well as Green Bay (-1.5) to cover against Minnesota. Not bad Zorgon, not bad, but that bad Jay Cutler karma is out to get you. Zorgon's record is 2-2.
Mike Shanahan taught Lane Kiffin a thing or two in their last game
Last but not least, there's Jason Frost. 1-1 last week, man. I'm sorry, that Cincinnati game does not count a win. 3 points does not = 3.5 points. His other game, OU (what a suprise) was able to cover vs Tulsa however, putting his overall reord at 3-1. For this week, he's got the New York Jets (-3) to cover against the Bills, and OU (-22.5) to cover against Colorado (what a suprise).
Jason Frost has been riding the back of OU and Sam Bradford all year
So, that puts the standings at Jason Frost (3-1) in first, me (2-2) and Zorgon tied for second.
