Week 3 delays

The games won't be delayed, just the posting of the Gehlke Bros.' picks. Glenn and Ben are on the road and we haven't been able to connect with Sean yet. But once we do we'll put all the current picks/results online.

Well, that was ugly

Week 1 is one I'd like to forget. Especially that Monday night loss by the Eagles. Not that the game was as bad as my luck on Monday nights. Just to illustrate: When I contemplated this week's picks on Saturday evening, I had Atlanta to win. Then I made the mistake of consulting with the media "experts" who made good arguments as to why I should pick Philly, so I did, knowing in the bottom of my gut that I'd kick myself if the Falcons won and doubly hard if Sean picked them. Guess what happened...

OK, so I tried not to kick myself too hard because I still needed to be semi-conscious to write up this week's postmortem. But you get the idea. 8-8. Ack, phooey! I must do better. Perhaps a few days of New Mexico vistas will improve things. I can hang out at Roswell and commune with the space aliens, learn their ancient prognosticating secrets.

...Or maybe they'll just abduct me on Mondays for the next 15 weeks. 8-/

But how about those Niners! How about those Dolphins! The meek may inherit the earth after all. Hmmm... Forgive me if I don't book my February tickets to Detroit just yet. It's hard to fathom that this year could be any worse than last for those two teams, but one victory does not a dynasty make. Same for the Patriots, except that the D-word fits them better having won three of the past four trophies. It's going to be an interesting season.

One down, 255 to go

Looks like the Patriots are getting things started the same way they did last year, winning on opening night of the new season. The Raiders were inept, as usual. Only Ben went out on the proverbial limb, picking his favorite silver and black team "just to see how good they are." The Raiders played well for about 30 minutes, but the Pats played better for the entire 60.

There's something invigorating about the start of the new football season, when you can actually watch football on the tube and actually care about who wins and loses. So much better than baseball pennant races, but perhaps that's just my bias.

Still a lot of football left in opening weekend. The Bros. will have a full slate of picks on Sunday morning.

One week to kickoff...

Can you feel the excrement... er, excitement... building? The Senior Bro has been hard at work redesigning the Web site in preparation for the 2005 campaign. My goal is to have things online by Sunday night. Always like to cut things close in NawFuL land.

Meanwhile, our hearts go out to the good people of New Orleans and surrounding communities who have everything but football on their minds right now. The Superdome is in a shambles along with most of the rest of the city in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. It will be perhaps months until people are allowed to return to their waterlogged homes, let alone enjoy a Sunday football game. Best wishes for a speedy recovery to all those affected by this week's tragedy.
