IT’S FOOTBALL SEASON BABY!!

Now that baseball season is officially over for me (the Yanks are done) and I am done getting crazy about it,

I must turn to the gridiron for comfort. Here are my picks for the division and wildcard winners

AFC EAST- Buffalo Bills- THATS RIGHT BILLS FANS, THIS YEAR IS THE YEAR!!!! Tom Brady is hurt,

I know I wasn't the only one saying "yessss!" when Brady got hurt

I know I wasn't the only one saying "yesss!!" when Mr. Brady got hurt

the Jets are the most overrated team in football (more on that later). The Bills have a revamped defense, one of the best running backs in the league and a very smart quarterback who is not named J.P Losman.

James Hardy will prove to be a key red zone threat and Lee Evans will show that he truly is a top-notch receiver.

AFC North- Pittsburgh Steelers- Big Ben and Co. have been there before and are in a weak division…nuff’ said.

AFC South- Indianapolis Colts- Yes, they are struggling. Yes, Bob Sanders is hurt, but Center Jeff Saturday will return soon and as long as Peyton Manning is under center, the Colts will take a weaker than expected AFC South.

AFC West- Denver Broncos- This will be not be a walk in the park. The Charges gave the Broncos a run for their money in week 2 and they will do the same for the rest of the year.

AFC Wild Card- Patriots and Chargers- The Patriots were never a one dimensional team and all they know is winning (other than the last Superbowl). Quarterback Matt Cassell does not have to put out a Brady-like effort in order for this team to succeed. The Chargers missed the Superbowl by one game last year. With an overall weak AFC, Phillip Rivers and L.T should be able to lead their team to the playoffs.

NFC East- Cowboys- They have an explosive offense and a pretty solid defense (other thanthat Monday against the Eagles) Don’t worry Giants fans I haven’t counted you guys out yet.

NFC North- Green Bay Packers- Aaron Rodgers is playing like he has something to prove. Oh, wait, he does. He has shown (so far) that he is a smart quarterback with a lot of confidence. It helps that they are in a terrible division.

NFC South- Carolina Panthers- They are playing solid defense but they will face stiff competition from the Buccaneers. Their entire season rests on the arm and leadership of Jake Delhomme. If he gets injured, give the division to the Bucs.

NFC West- This division is barely worth writing about. The Matt Leinart-less Arizona Cardinals will roll with the division. I honestly don’t think they will lose a divisional game.

NFC Wild Card- Giants and Eagles- The Giants now know how to win and it may be ugly at times, but they will find a way to get into the playoffs. The Eagles have a high powered offense and a defense good enough to help them win games. Donovan McNabb looks even stronger and healthier than he did four years ago.

SUPERBOWL WINNERS

Here is my Gutsy (dumb) (wishfull thinking) (Chris Berman 49ers Bills) (you gotta believe) pick-

Bills defeat Packers 24-17

Here’s what will probably happen

Cowboys beat the Patriots 41-27

One more thing…..the New York Bretts are overrated….even if he is God’s gift to football

Draftapolooza

Ahhh, the first two rounds of the NFL Draft….I don’t know what was more exciting, staring mindlessly at the TV waiting for the Bills to get to pick or watching some of the 4 hours of coverage ESPN had for a “pregame” show. Good God that is a long time to speculate things. There were some points today I felt sorry for the people who had nothing better to do than watch it. Then I realized I was feeling sorry for myself and promptly got off my ass and did something. After getting lunch, I sat back down and struggled to hang on, awaiting the moment that would define the Bills in the draft.

The moment came, this was it, the player that will finally vault the Bills into the playoffs is…Leodis McKelvin Cornerback from Troy!!!……wait, who?…

Even Mel “the hair, the truth” Kiper had to stop and think about who this guy actually was. I have no idea who this guy is but apparently he is a first round draft pick even though all he really did in college was return kickoffs.

So I moved on with my life, the hopes of getting a star player fading fast…but wait, there was a second round! This is it, the Bills have another chance for greatness….and another pick from out of nowhere, James Hardy, Wide Receiver from Indiana. WOOOHOOO!!….wait, exactly who am I whoohooing about?…I don’t know but he is a big dude; 6’6″ 220 pounds

Can’t wait for rounds 3-7 tomorrow, which I am not going to watch

You can count on that

PS The Yankees lost their third straight game- I didn’t get a chance to see it but Ohlendorf lost it on a Victor Martinez walk-off single in the ninth inning. I’m still not worried, Ohlendorf is going to get better with experience, even if that experience is losing a game in the ninth inning.

Props today go to:-The Buffalo Bills for pushing the envelope, people who can actually say that they watched every minute of the draft coverage today…the Marlins for remaining in first place
