After a wild and whacky day of action, many people are still trying to figure out what happened.   My picks went 2-4 and 0-1 on the teaser.  Not a great start, but with two picks for tomorrow I expect to be 4-4 for a .500 weekend.    After looking around at some of the results around the capping world, things could have been much worse.   

Big surprises turned the weekend on its head as Peyton lost only his 2nd game in his last 17 against the Texans and the heavy division favorites SF lost dreadfully to the Pete Carrol Seahawks.   Atlanta lost a close one in OT and the NYG/CAR game was a turnover-fest resulting in a lot of scoring opportunities.

Most people overreact to week 1 results and that is a good opportunity to take advantage of some soft lines.   I should have some early overnight week 2 picks up later tonight or early tomorrow before the public have a chance to move the numbers. 

I don't like the 'Skins or the 'Boys tonight due to the big questions marks heading into the season.   Both teams have problems on the offensive line and the Shanahan/Mcnabb combo remain a complete unknown at this point.   Due to the division rivalry and O-line questions, I'd say the strongest play is the UNDER, but I still won't be playing it.
