Hi. I'm the Benster and I am in the neighborhood, peeps! And no, that's not me in the picture. But it's time that you got the picture, so here we go.
I'm talkin' about practice football. The pre-season officially starts tomorrow. No "Annie" references, please! Let's get right to the picks, even as my sister gives me grief. You have to be real pro to pick games under these conditions! These are just the Thursday games, I'll be back to pick the rest later on.
Baltimore 31, Washington 17. Even though I am probably the biggest Santana Moss fan out there, Baltimore is just too good defensively and there's no way that Jason Campbell will ever be the best quarterback in the league. Sorry, 'Skins fans!
New England 21, Philadelphia 14. This is just an educated guess, but I think Tom Brady won't do much on a surgically-repaired knee. Since Brady is my Dad's fantasy football quarterback, I will probably run away with the fantasy football league title AGAIN. By the way, my quarterback (Drew Brees) is not on a surgically-repaired knee and is the hottest quarterback in the league.
Arizona 23, Pittsburgh 0. Even though this is the pre-season, you can't count out the revenge factor. Arizona FTW!
Dallas 28, Whoever the heck plays in Oakland O. Do I even need to say what is going to happen to the Raiders? Who is the next mediocre Oakland quarterback?
And remember, watch the games that are going on in your area, unless you don't have cable, because we all know that hoboes don't have enough money for cable. They can't even fix the hobo suit.
