Week 2 - The Return of Vick as a Starter?

I think one of the strangest turn of events from last week is the fact that new Eagles QB, Kevin Kolb, suffered a concussion... resulting in Vick becoming an NFL starter (at least temporarily). It should be an interesting experiment to say the least.

I feel as though the injuries from Week 1 may have been even more significant than most of the outcomes. The Packers lost RB Ryan Grant for the season, the Lions lost QB Matt Stafford for a month, the Jets lost DT Kris Jenkins, the Eagles also lost their center... and those are just the injuries off the top of my head! Sheesh... on to the games:

Manwich Matchup of the Week
Giants @ Indy- This game became even more intriguing because the Colts lost their first game... and could suddenly be in an 0-2 hole. Granted, it's very early, but it definitely puts more pressure on this game.
Pick: Indy

Upset of the Week
Miami @ Minnesota - I think Favre is going to take some time to get the rust out... plus it was really hard to find an upset this week.
Pick: Miami

Opening Round Playoff Game #2
Teams that have been eliminated: Cleveland
St. Louis @ Oakland - Well... I've been touting the potential of the Raiders during the summer, but they looked like garbage against the Titans last week. It's time to put up or shut up I think!
Pick: Oakland

Fantasy Football Game of Interest
Seattle @ Denver - If only because I have no idea who the starting RBs or WRs are on either team!
Pick: Seattle

Other Games
KC @ Cleveland- Pick: Cleveland
Buff @ GB - Pick: Green Bay
Balt @ Cincy - Pick: Baltimore
Pitt @ Tennessee- Pick: Tennessee
Philly @ Detroit- Pick: Philly
Chicago @ Dallas - Pick: Dallas
TB @ CAR - Pick: CAR
Ariz @ ATL- Pick: ATL
Houston @ Washington - Pick: Houston
Jacksonville @ San Diego - Pick: San Diego
NE @ Jets- Pick: New England (the Jets could be 0-2 very quickly!)
New Orleans @ SF - Pick: New Orleans

Last Week: 9-7 (not so hot)
Season: 9-7
Manwich: 1-0 (The Ravens defensively dominated the Jets)
Upset of the Week: 0-1 (The Raiders didn't play well at all against the Titans)

I'll go with the same save KC and Denver. I'm still not sure what to make of the Seattle....

I have no idea what to make of seattle either... but denver is such an enigma to me as well.
