Week 4 - Let's Get Dangerous!

Manwich Matchup of the Week
Balt @ Pitt- Should be a great game... even if Ray Rice is missing. Something tells me I should just go with homefield advantage here.
Pick: Pitt

Upset of the Week
Denver @ Tenn - There are some byes this week, and I don't know what else to pick. I hope the Titans QBs mess everything up!
Pick: Denver

Opening Round Playoff Game #4
Teams that have been eliminated: Cleveland, St. Louis, Oakland
Detroit @ GB - Look, there isn't really any horrible matchup on the entire schedule. So... I will use this week to assume that Green Bay can put the nail in the Lions coffin and put them in an 0-4 hole.
Pick: GB

Game of Interest -
Wash @ Philly - McNabb's return. Should be an interesting game. Not sure how the fans will react? Philly fans are usually brutal... even when it wasn't McNabb's fault.
Pick: Philly

Other Games
Cincy @ Cleve- Pick: Cincy
CAR @ NO - Pick: CAR
SF @ ATL- Pick: ATL
Seattle @ St. Louis- Pick: Seattle
Jets @ Buff - Pick: Jets
Indy @ Jack - Pick: Indy
Houston @ Oakland - Pick: Houston
Ariz @ SD - Pick: SD
Chicago @ Giants - Pick: Giants (the bears are the worst 3-0 team... ever. The Giants better stop them).
New England @ Miami - Pick: Miami (I can't tell what to do in any of these AFC East divisional games. I'm just going with the home team).

Last Week: 8-8 (ouch!)
Season: 26-22
Manwich: 2-1 (The Dolphins fell short against the Jets)
Upset of the Week: 2-1 (The Falcons did it! They took advantage of the Saints kicker missing a gimme!)

"The bears are the worst 3-0 team... ever."

Really? They're not even the worst 3-0 team right now. You want to pick on an overrated undefeated squad, go rag on KC.

Yeah I have to agree with Hitman on this one.... Bears have more longevity than KC

I think I went too far by saying "worst 3-0... ever". And you are right - I forgot about the Chiefs who also stumbled their way into 3 wins, with 2 of the wins coming off of a few plays (a punt return in the 1st game vs. san diego and an INT return in the 2nd game vs. cleveland). I think by not having them on this week's schedule, I forgot about them. It's true though the bears could certainly take advantage of the reeling giants and pick up win #4.
