Week 1 showed me nothing except how unprepared most of the teams were. Poor execution, bad penalties, and general sloppiness were the norm. This makes it hard to predict Week 2 results, because the question becomes "who can correct their miscues soonest". I guess I did so badly in Week 1 that my picks were not even listed in the standings.

I didn't see any miscues Sunday because I only watched the Jaguars.

Missed last night's game (for which I would have scored 0 points). Alas. Just going to keep riding that "lock against the Jags" wave--it's been very effective so far.
