We made our picks last week before the first game of the year but am only getting around to posting now which actually works out since I can now have a little reflection on my selections after seeing these teams play a real game. I, of course, can only speak to my selections.
Baltimore Ravens(Over) - I honestly now can't stand this pick. I don't really think much of this division. If you told me that the other three teams in this division other than Cleveland would finish 9-7, I wouldn't be surprised. I had a gut it would be Cleveland. After Week 1 and the Ray Rice thing it looks like I potentially chose poorly.
Dallas Cowboys(Under) - The Cowboys usually finish 8-8 when their defense is okay. This team's defense has a chance to be historically bad. I see a 6-10 type season for them.
Indianapolis Colts(Under) - The offensive line is terrible and on paper I don't think they are better than they were last year but I think every other team in the division is a little better. I don't see them going 6-0 in the AFC South again this year.
Kansas City Chiefs(Under) - I think they are closer to the 2-5 team that finished 2013 than the 9-0 team that started 2013. Not a bad team but I don't see a 9 win team when I look at them.
New Orleans Saints(Over) - The Saints are a good bet to be right around that mark. I like the fact that they play two of their harder games (Green Bay and San Francisco) at home.
New York Jets(Over) - The QB situation should be better than last year with either Geno Smith improving or Michael Vick playing. With that defense its not unrealistic to see at least and 8-8 season.
*The bet "prize" will be paid up with a three hour open bar for the winner that will be split between the 2nd place and 3rd place in a (1/3 and 2/3) split.
