NFL Week Two: Staff Picks

New, comments
Presswire

The first week of the NFL Regular Season is in the books and although my lack of faith in the hometown team was not rewarded I'm still the only member of the staff in double digits. Aside from the Raiders, the Saints, Packers, Panthers and Steelers also let me down. For the record, I'm more than okay with the Raiders and Steelers failing to come through because I hate them both like cancer.

Our fearless leader, John Gennaro, is currently in the basement with Orz (who claims he didn't really pick the Raiders, but that's not what the Google doc says, Chris) at 8-7. The rest of the staff that bothered to submit their picks last week are tied at 9-6. This week we've added two new competitors, AvengingJM and Dana. The latter's excuse is that we didn't hire her until Saturday (which I'll admit is a pretty good excuse). The former's excuse is that he sucks (which you have to admit is a pretty terrible excuse).

As far as trends go, we were five for six (stupid Saints) when we had a consensus pick. This week, even with two extra participants, we all agree on the outcomes of eight of the games including the Chargers/Titans. I'm considering changing my pick since everyone taking the Chargers feels like some seriously bad hoodoo.

Anyway, don't forget to give us your picks in the comments (maybe it would help if at least one of you took the Titans).
