Jeez … you’d think going 14-2 would have catapulted me up the standings a little better, but six other pickers matched me. Still, Brian Freebern’s near-perfect week has him in a tie at the top with John Santasier. Brian’s only miss was picking Baltimore over Tennessee. Good, solid week overall for our picking crew.

Many of you have noticed — and were quick to point out — that finding the picking form on our new website was a tad tricky. Thanks to the efforts of Denton’s GM Dan Alexander Jr. (whose feet haven’t touched the ground since his beloved Bills are 2-0), it is now going to be super simple to find. Just go to http://www.newsenterprise.org/contests/nfl and it’ll take you right to the current week’s pick sheet. Or, you can go to newsenterprise.org and click on the awesome You Pick’Em Contest advertisement.

It wasn’t pretty, but Big Blue got a much-needed “W” Monday night. I’m a little concerned with both sides of the ball; Eli and his receivers just don’t seem to be clicking, and the defensive secondary seems confused much of the time. Hopefully they’ll continue to get it together, starting this week when they put a major beat-down on the Beagles — Vick or no Vick.

Toughest game for me to pick in Week 3 is Monday’s Deadskins/Cowgirls game. Romo showed some toughness coming back in the game with busted ribs last week, but we must remember it was against the 49ers, and Washington barely got by a pretty crappy Arizona team. That said, I’ll reluctantly take Dallas at home.
