My letter to all Packers fans

Dear Packers fans attending tomorrow's Vikings vs. Packers game,

It would give me great pleasure and satisfaction if you would all please so kindly throw cheese at Brett Favrererer each time he takes the field at Lambeau tomorrow. It would also maybe stop the commentators weird love fest with him too.

That is all.

Edwards is far from Lebron, Crabtree caved and other week 5 news

Mark Sanchez has a new target to throw to this Sunday after the Browns traded WR Braylon Edwards, which we all know had something to do with him getting in a fight with Lebron's friends. C'mon Cleveland. We're not the dumb. We can put two and two together; even little blonde me could figure it out. We'll see how Edwards plays in New York. But I'm not really expecting much. I still have no faith in the rookie Sanchez (especially after last week).

The Browns, on the other hand, got WR Chansi Stuckey, LB Jason Trusnik and two undisclosed draft choices. They also came very close to stealing a win from the Bengals last week. This week, they're playing the Bills. I have a feeling the Bills are just going to get worse and worse the more T.O. gets frustrated. So perhaps the Browns actually pull out a win on the road this week.

Crabtree finally realized that 1. he's an idiot, 2. he's not going to get more money and 3. if he gets redrafted next year, he's really not going to get more money. He agreed to a 6-year, $32 mil deal with the 49ers after holding out and somehow the moron actually got more money (previously was offered 5 years, $20 mil). We'll see if he's worth it. I think this year is probably going to be a bust for him.

Other news around the league, QB Donovan McNabb is listed as probable and will most likely start for the Eagles against the Bucs. QB Matt Hasselbeck is expected to start for the Seahawks. The Steelers will probably be without Troy Polamalu again [he's still busy making Head & Shoulders commercials (side note: Troy, I love that commercial. It makes me laugh. Good job!)]. Eli Manning is likely to start on Sunday despite his heel injury. The Cowboys are probably without WR Roy Williams and RB Felix Jones.

I'll post picks later today.

Week 4 Picks

Lions @ Bears - This should be all Chicago but the Lions really aren't as bad as we think they are, so look for them to keep it close.

Bengals @ Browns - Now the Browns really are bad as we think they are. I wouldn't be surprised if they go 0-16 this year.

Seahawks @ Colts - The Colts destroyed the Cards last week and Seneca Wallace is still most likely starting for the Seahawks. I expect to hear Manning to Wayne/Clark TD! a lot today.

Giants @ Chiefs - The Giants are one of the best teams in the NFL right now and the Chiefs are fighting for their rightful position near the bottom.

Ravens @ Patriots - I don't care what you say but Tom Brady isn't back just yet. His accuracy isn't back to what it was and the Ravens are red hot right now. They finally have an offense to match their defense. I expect to see a lot of unhappy Bostonians today.

Bucs @ Redskins - The Redskins are bad but the Bucs are worse.

Titans @ Jaguars - The Titans are too good of a team to end up 0-4 and 0-2 in divisional games. This is a must win for them.

Raiders @ Texans - When the coach is punching his assistant coaches (allegedly), there's an issue.

Bills @ Dolphins - Pennington is gone for the season and the Fins are 0-3. In this must-win at home, it's probably going to be all wildcat. The Bills have Lynch back this week but Jackson has been playing well anyway so I don't think it'll make that much of a difference. McKelvin is out and T.O. is clearly pissed, I think the Bills could start to spiral downward fast.

Jets @ Saints - The Jets just seem overrated to me. Remember last season when the Bills started 5-1 or something like that. I have a feeling the Jets might pull something like that and then just crash and burn. The Saints on the other hand have been destroying opponents. They give up a lot of points but no one is close to them in points for.

Cowboys @ Broncos - The Broncos might be 3-0 but they haven't beaten anyone worthwhile. The Bengals are the only decent team and that was on a fluke TD. Otherwise, they've beaten the Browns and the Raiders. Welcome to week 4: your first test.

Rams @ 49ers - The 49ers look good and even without Gore they should pound the Rams today.

Chargers @ Steelers - The Steelers aren't looking like the defending Super Bowl champs. The Chargers might have LT back today but I'm picking the Steelers to sneak out with the win.

Packers @ Vikings - If this game was in Green Bay, I'd be picking the Pack all way. But in Minnesota, I don't think the fans are going to that angry with Favre.

My T.O. rant

Here's the thing with T.O. Yeah he's a bit of a drama queen. But here's the thing with this whole situation, the Bills didn't win. So yeah T.O. is being a baby about losing his streak, but I can understand his frustration. If the Bills won and he was bitching about things, I'd just be like oh that's just T.O. being T.O. However, since they didn't, I get it. I'd be annoyed too if my team lost and I didn't contribute to the team at all. So for the first time in my life, I'm going to say, "Lay off T.O."

The blacked out Lions

Do the Lions get their first win today? The Redskins haven't looked so hot this season. Unfortunately for Detroit, if the Lions do win today, no one in Detroit will see it. So here's my problem with the league blacking out games. Can anyone in Detroit even afford to go to the game? With the current state of this economy, I almost feel bad for Lions fans in Detroit. The Lions have lost their last 19 games. That's painful enough. I understand the point in blacking games out. The teams need fans in the seats. That's obvious. But in a market like Detroit, it's hard for those fans. I read that Detroit area is expected to lose 132,000 jobs this year. That's A LOT of jobs. Detroit is suffering enough. Don't punish them because they can't afford to see their sad Lions.

Barbie's banged up fantasy team

Well this is just a Barbie's fantasy team update because I need to rant.

Starting QB: Donovan McNabb...thank you for breaking your ribs.
Starting RB: Ladanian Tomlinson....way to sprain your ankle, man.
3rd WR: Anthony Gonzalez...falling down in a heap all by yourself is obviously the most epic way to sprain your MCL
DEF: Chicago...of course Urlacher is going to sit out this season.
K: Mason Crosby...well straining your abs sounds like you just ate a little too much at an all-you-can-eat buffet. At least you're still listed as probable so I won't be too mad.

Painful team...the fantasy gods are not loving me this season.
