Yes, I am ready for some football
Well, the season starts tonight so I gotta get that first pick out there. Truth be told, I'm torn on this one (Miami at Pittsburgh, a pick-em and over/under 34.5). Everything keeps telling me Miami and the under, and the more I think about it, Miami IS the way to go on this one. Pittsburgh's beat up, fat-and-happy and confused. I'm not going to go down the whole defending-champ-returns-to-earth path just yet (though I do expect that to ultimately happen). BUT, Miami's coming in with a lot to prove, and I figure they'll prove it and put up some points in the process while the D clamps down on the Steelers.
The Pick: Miami over Pittsburgh, 21-17. Which means, yes, I'm going to go with the over.
