Re: ESPN/Bill Simmons NFL Pointspreads Podcast
I think its a little bit of an overreaction to have the Steelers so high (and sure I know some people have no time for power rankings) after two games against medicore opposition.
I think they are balanced and possibly have the best shot at postseason success out of all the etams in the AFCN - but to put them above the Colts?
Thats a little much at this point - Indy is as smooth as ever on offense and the run D seems closer to the post season 06 effort than the awful regular season 06.
If i had to pick a line to follow this week (for strictly non-betting purposes, of course) it would be Chargers -4.5 - I think they are going to win by 20.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
