Smile Something must be wrong at EPSN.com!

Something must be up, since every analyst EXCEPT Joe Theismann picked the chargers to win on ESPN's "expert" pics. Hell must be frozen over. Either that, or Joe's finally taking his anti-jacka$$ meds.

I guess that those experts forgot that the cast of the movie "The Ringer" would have probably done just as well against the Chargers as Tennessee and Oakland. Even though San Diego did ok against the rat-birds, THEY STILL LOST.

Almost everyone is on the Chargers bandwagon this week, which is good.

Very good point. I was just surprised to see that the lone guy for the steelers was Theismann, of all people.

The Steelers relish the underdog role.

These guys don't have a clue, any more than you or I do. they're guessing. It "feels" like the Chargers should win, so that's who they pick.

Whatever. If what they thought was such a big deal, we wouldn't have to play the games.

totally true, as long as ben is doing bad apparently our whole team becomes more underestimated.

If everyone picked the same, the world would be boring.

Yeah WTF. Normally Merril would pick the Steelers even if we were starting our third string and Theismann wouldn't pick the Steelers even if the other team was starting their third string.
