PRICELESS NFL PICKS 2014 SUPER BOWL SPECIAL PICKS

Hey PICK fans!  I am back!  After a long, dreadful drought I am back and ready to have fun.  I was over 85% with my picks when I had my life thrown into a tizzy.  But enough about me it’s SUPER BOWL time and it’s here in New Jersey which is a place it will never, ever be again.

It was freaking cold this week.  No fun for anyone who wanted to go to any of the SB events.

I must admit I have live in both cities that are in the SB this year.  I lived in Federal Way WA and Boulder CO so I have a good understanding of the teams and their fan base.  First thing I have to say is enough discussion about the cold and wind affecting Peyton Manning.  Have any of these people ever even been to Denver.  There is wind there too.

Also, all the cold discussion will go out the window as it may be in the 50′s before game time and about 30 later at night but not the deep freeze, frozen tundra, ice bowl, Titanic Iceberg, mega-storm, doom and gloom, we are all going to die type of weather that will really affect the play on the field.  The fans will be cold but who cares about them, most are not even fans of either team.

So who is going to win the BIG GAME, the game of games, the battle to end all battles, etc. etc.

It is nice that the two best teams in each conference are in the SB.  Usually, that does not happen but it did this year.  So much for the Chefs coming in a close 2nd.  LOL Doom on you Andy Reid.

So who is going to win?

I have always said the DEFENSE WINS SUPER BOWLS but so do great QBs.

Both teams have both.

So who is going to win?

PRICELESS NFL PICKS 2013 – WEEK 4

Off to another good start at PRICELSS NFL PICKS as the Rams made Thursday night’s game just too easy.  Week 4 includes the first byes of the season and the first game in Wembley Stadium.  Of course America only exports the best games over seas as both teams are 0-3 and going nowhere.  Look for the tie there just to make sitting in the rain even worse than normal.

NFL Season Preview: Who Will Hoist the Lombardi Trophy in New York?

NFC South Beakdown

Atlanta Falcons

Prediction: 1st in division (13-3 overall)

Strengths: Offensively, they have so many weapons. Two top ten receivers in Roddy White and Julio Jones. Addition of Steven Jackson will be huge. Matt Ryan is a top 10 QB. Defense is pretty solid as well.

Causes for concern: Not too many causes for concern in Atlanta. Only concerns would result from injury.. Not a lot of depth in the offensive line or linebacking core.

X-Factor: Matt Ryan. Hardly a X-factor because it has become clear that this guy can play. And that’s all he needs to do for this team to be successful. He has weapons around him, a defense that can keep them in every game, and a coach that knows how to win. If Matt Ryan plays the way he has played in recent years, the Falcons are a lock for the playoffs.

New Orleans Saints

Prediction: 2nd in division (9-7 overall)

Strengths: Offensive firepower. One of the best pocket passers in the league, maybe of all time, and he has great targets to throw to. Secondary isn’t bad with Jabari Greer and Keenan Lewis on the outside.

Causes for concern: Running game.. No clear favorite to take all the carries. Mark Ingram is yet to prove his Heisman worth, Darren Sproles is a better pass-catcher than runner, and Pierre Thomas has never been consistent. Other than the secondary, the defense has some question marks. Defensive line and linebackers aren’t very intimidating. This team could get run all over.

X-Factor: Sean Payton. Back on the sidelines after a year-long suspension, it will be important for him to bring back that same competitive edge he once dominated the league with. Payton knows how to win, he taught his guys how to win, and they will certainly need that extra motivation this year after last season’s disappointments.

Carolina Panthers

Prediction: 3rd in division (8-8 overall)

Strengths: I would expect a huge year from Cam Newton this year. Also, defense looked good late last season and Luke Kuechly is just a stud at middle linebacker.

Causes for concern: The running game is not looking bright. DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart are both fragile and inconsistent. Also, will Steve Smith stay healthy? And will Brandon LaFell and Ten Ginn step up as other options for Newton?

X-Factor: Cam Newton. He has proven he can run the football. He has proven he can throw the football. He needs to do both this year and he needs to do them really well. This team isn’t strong enough on defense for Cam to struggle at all. He needs to be solid in the red zone. He needs to be smart in the 4th quarter. Cam can take this team to a wild card spot if he wants to.. But I believe Carolina is one more year away from that.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Prediction: 4th in division (6-10 overall)

Strengths: Doug Martin is a stud, there’s no doubt about that. But defenses will be gameplanning for him this year, that is for sure. Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson are threats on the outside. Defense is good, not great but still good.

Causes for concern: Doug Martin may hit a sophomore slump which will cause this offense to sputter significantly. Josh Freeman was so inconsistent last year and that’s always a concern. Like I said, defense is good but not great. Not good enough to keep them in some of the games on their tough schedule.

X-Factor: Josh Freeman. He needs to be consistent. If Freeman is consistent, he will keep them in every game. But when he gets trigger happy he starts forcing throws and turning the ball over. He has what it takes but he needs to keep it all together. If Freeman plays consistently, the Bucs could find themselves fighting for second in the division and avoiding the cellar. But, this isn’t a playoff team just yet.

Atlanta is the clear favorite to take this division. The Falcons are one of the better teams in the whole league and I don’t see any of these three threatening them for the division title. New Orleans, Carolina, and Tampa Bay all have question marks but plenty of potential. They will all battle for second in the division but don’t see them grabbing a playoff spot. Atlanta should have this one locked up early, not as early as last year, but still early. Stay tuned!
