    Article: Council of the Learned 2014: Preseason Week 3 NFL Picks

    As a writer, I'm like the last girl at the bar. In the morning, you may regret asking for my services, but I'll get the job done. As long as I don't puke on your floor.

    Picking preseason games is like kissing a cousin twice removed. With bad breath.

    It's like doing that, but not knowing that it was your cousin until after it happened. Picking the games was fun. The realization that it was still the preseason was not fun at all.

  4. I am "after the dash" (ATD) with CHI, CAR, DET & STL and I am "on the dash" with my TIE prediction in the DAL/MIA contest. Would a tie in a preseason game not be just friggin' fantastic?

    Pre-Season Week 3

    Pittsburgh at Philadelphia - Steelers start kicking ass & taking names
    Chicago at Seattle - JayJay, BMarshall & AJeffery take advantage of the Anti-LOB rules
    Carolina at New England - Does BB care about the presea? Negative, Ghostrider.
    NY Giants at NY Jets - Go EJ!!! Wait... Ummm.... Geno? Yeah, they both suck.
    Jacksonville at Detroit - Because.... Lions
    Oakland at Green Bay - The dress rehearsal of the San Antonio Spurs FC
    Tampa Bay at Buffalo - Go Geno!!! {because he deserves love, too}
    Dallas at Miami - TIE - These teams put the "fun" in dysfunctional.
    Tennessee at Atlanta - Atlanta will show why they will not go 4-12 again
    Washington at Baltimore - I do not believe in Jay Gruden. Not one little, itty bitty bit.
    New Orleans at Indianapolis - Drew Breesus will need reps and he will get them. Andrew Luck will be ready to rock and only plays two quarters
    St. Louis at Cleveland - JFF, meet Mr. Quinn
    Minnesota at Kansas City - The Viqueens will not even be close to deciding on a starter
    Houston at Denver - B.O'.B. has been reading too many of his press clippings
    San Diego at San Francisco - Does Jim Harbaugh care about the presea? Negative, hosers.
    Cincinnati at Arizona - Just because. Just be-freaking-cause.

    Hey, your real name could be Gabriella or something. Mine could be Enrique. Man, I wish my name was Enrique.

    Well...I can write a long soliloquy regarding the myriad of reasons behind that but I think this sums it up best...Blaine Gabbert makes me miss Scott Tolzein.
    I'm looking forward to the regular season. I think they'll be in the hunt.

    It's 45 minutes on a good day, say Saturday afternoon. Friday afternoon? More like 90 minutes.

    Last year I posted some information that showed SF was just barely west of both Seattle and Oakland. With the stadium relocation (south and east), The SF team now plays further east than their cross bay rivals in Oakland. Gotta love geography.
