No way the Giants are going to beat the Colts. Eli may have the book, but Payton wrote it.

And so it begins. My once yearly several months of masochism known as being a Lions fan. Let the beatings and whipping begin.

Good fun, fraze. The Vikings over the Redskins? Really? Maybe I need to revise my confidence picks . . .

You actually put some thought into these? That's not a retorical question. Yo, just kidding but Jags will cover the 2.5 at Home against the Boys..... Hummmm.....I think so....... Thanks for the effort, appreciated....

Good stuff as always, fraze. Glad to see these back. A minor quibble, though. You have Miami listed as part of your trifecta, but Pittsburgh beating them 23-20.

Oops ... That should read Pittsburgh. Is there a way to change that? Damn it, Maurice, you're supposed to be proofing these!

I'm with bperk. I don't see Minnesota going into Washington and winning. If the game was in the dome, maybe. Washington is, and always has been, a tough place to play.

Maybe we could call the handle on Ben Roethlesieildljfhdghaslkjdfljkburger's locker the "Batch Latch". That rhymes, and has some potential. And with that fourth interception, we have to wonder if Bill Cowher is finally thinking of reaching for the Batch Latch. Also, re: Toronto's running backs. Since the current trio of Williams-Avery-Johnson have performed almost inversely to their original positions on the depth chart, any new RB added to the squad would inevitably run for 400 yards and at least 5 TDs a game.

Jets over Tennessee and Giants over Colts... you're from Jersey? I'M from Jersey! Hey - free drink for this guy on Jim McGreevey, please, would ya? Nice work. Hoser.

I flipped on that Minnesota over Washington pick several times. I have a strange feeling the Vikings will be out to show something for the new head coach and for Brad Johnson. I also think the Redskins are unstable as hell after the Duckett trade. That was a vote of no confidence for their running backs, one that did not sit well.

I think it would take an act of God, Ying Yang, since senile Ford seems to be incapable of seeing the problem. I know Ford, considering his age, had better be hoping God's not a Lions fan or he's in big trouble in the near future.

Good stuff, wfrazerjr.

Although many think that the G Men have no shot Sunday, I think the Hoser has it dead on. Peyton never does that well under much pressure... something he will be under against his brother, Osi Strahan & Co.

I know it's Herm Edwards instead of Dick Vermeil, but I guarantee you after Herm sees this team without Willie Roaf and any decent wide receivers, he'll be crying, too. Bengals 26, Chiefs 23. LMBO!!! Apparently you have never been to Arrowhead. Especially the home opener. Chiefs 31/ Cincy 17

I have three guaranteed picks for you: 1. Regardless of Cowboys outcome I will still hate Terrell "Black Death" Owens. 2. Peyton "Mr. September" Manning wins the battle of the Mannings vs the Giants. 3. Joe "naked drunk driver" Cullen ushers in a new era of pride and teamwork in Detriot starting their drive to toward the superbowl! (mark my words, as long as 5-11 gets them into the playoffs).

The trifecta is a safe bet this week Fraze. I am not so sure little bro and co. can pull it off against Indy though. All in all, damn glad to have the Hoser Picks back, and thank god its football season again!

Ditto. One of the first things I did when I signed up here was go through the archives reading the Hoser picks. Excellent stuff!

...and thank god its football season again!

Yes, now I can justify my heavy drinking on Sunday.

Seattle at DETROIT (+6): Just six points? This offense shines brighter than Matt Hasslebeck's head. Seahawks 34, Lions 13. I'm with ya, Hoser. Methinks (or meworries) that this is one of those sucker bets and it ends up 17-16. And, I take strong personal offense to the comments on the Browns game .. oh wait, you're right - crap.

There's a chill in the air, and the Hoser is back. Hurray for autumn!

A little information on how the picks are running thus far for Week One (first indicator is ATS, second is SU): Pittsburgh covers Miami W/W St. Louis covers Denver L/L NY Jets cover Tennessee W/W Buffalo covers New England L/W Baltimore covers Tampa Bay L/L Cincy covers KC W/W Detroit covers Seattle L/W Atlanta covers Carolina L/W New Orleans covers Cleveland W/L Philly covers Houston W/W Jacksonville covers Dallas W/L Chicago covers Green Bay W/W San Francisco covers Arizona L/W Indy covers NY Giants L/L At this point, The Hoser is 7-7 ATS and 9-5 SU. We are, however, two-for-two in the Trifecta -- go San Diego! Here's how the money will be bet so we can keep a bank for the season: $100 on each ATS $300 on the Lock of the Week $100 on the Trifecta (which pays at 6:1) The LOTW will jump to $500 on the weeks with fewer games. I bet I hit it while I'm going cheap. Oh, and damn that terrible offensive pass interference call! I was covered until Joe Glaucoma threw the flag.

Final Week One -- 9-7 ATS and 11-5 straight up. $900 - $700 ATS = $200 Lock of the Week = $300 Trifecta = $600 $1100 - 10% Juice = +$990 Not bad.
