  • Game lines alter slightly based on the source.
  • The winner versus the spread is listed in bold.

    Dallas puts up 20 on the Jets? And they only score 23 w/ a happy (read that as paid) Holmes, a reinvigorated Burress, newly acquired Jeremy Herley at the WR3 and returning punts and that running game (O line)?

    I hate to think about this but I don’t think Dallas is any way prepared for the likes of the Jets right now…later in the season, I think we’d put up a much better effort as I think our learning curve will be steep at first. Dallas’ youth is its greatest asset yet also its greatest weakness.

    TJ-Interesting point on our greatest strength and weakness. You just never know. Factor in injuries and expected errors in executing the new D to perfection. Whew! It could be a recipe for disaster. I think we have to run the ball well. We also need a big receiving game from our TE’s and RB’s, with yards after the catch. We MUST have pressure on Sanchez. He still hasn’t proved to be anything more than a game manager to me. So I’m thinking pressure=interceptions.

    As far as picks Washington, Denver, and GB win straight up. Buffalo and Dallas pull shockers in their openers. Is their a smiley face button on here?
