Av's "Looking West" - Week 2
I had a nice break from the banter, and Iím ready for Week 2!
I had a rough week of picks (0-3), but Iím feeling good about this weekend's games.
I think that RGIII will find the going a bit more difficult as the season progresses and teams start to game plan for him. The Rams have a better set of DBs than the Saints, and if they can keep him in the pocket, I think heíll make mistakes. I also doubt the Rams will have such a poor run/pass ratio as the Saints had last week (10 rushing attempts, 52 passes).
This will be a sloppy, defensive battle. Thatís what the Niners want, even with their new offensive weapons. Alex Smith is going to get hit a lot this week, though, and that could be dangerous for San Francisco.
The Seahawks were over-rated by many before the season started. While they have some talent on defense, they wonít contain Dallasí offense. This could be the last start for Russell Wilson before Matt Flynn takes over.
New England 38
This one could be very ugly. Kevin Kolb gets the start by default, but I donít expect heíll do much to hold the job. The Patriots are always tough early in the season, and this wonít be an exception.
San Francisco 2-0 (0-0)
Arizona 1-1 (1-0)
St. Louis 1-1 (0-0)
Seattle 0-2 (0-1)
