The Hoser Picks, NFL Week 8: NFL predictions for those who would prefer ritual disembowelment to listening to Michael Irvin. By sportsfilter's own wfrazerjr.

I particularly like the cue of the Brian Billick firing. The Ravens are an AWFUL football team. Nice write up, but I'll be keeping my money in-house this weekend.

fraze are you positing that Alex Smith is an immortal? Or that he digs tights and fur boas?

Wow, I didn't even know Reggie Roby was sick. (And it was up to Metafilter vice SpoFi to tell me about Sheryl Swoopes.) justgary, I'm enjoying your picks more with each week that goes by -- especially because this seems like the most upredictable, schizophrenic season in at least a decade. (At this point I'd half believe the Panthers and Bengals in the big show at the end.)

Alum, thanks, but they ain't mine. All credit/blame goes to wfrazerjr. (The author's name is at the top of any column.)

I like the picks too, although I'll pessimistically disagree with your assessment of the New England defense. Time will tell on that, I think, but it hasn't told yet.

Terrapin, I think I crossed Bill Cowher with that other brilliant Pittsburgh strategist, Dave Wannstedt. I shudder to think of that union.

That would be one bushy and intense union, wfrazerjr.

(At this point I'd half believe the Panthers and Bengals in the big show at the end.) Strangely enough, I believe that was my pick, but I can't find the Locker Room thread to verify. I think I may have even picked the Bengals to win, but I'd had a lot of NyQuil that day.

Houston gets their first win this week against Cleveland.

Alex Smith != Dr. Furter, lilnemo, and that goes for both of them! Although I see you shiver with antici...pation.

Kansas City at SAN DIEGO (-4.5): Damn it, Arrowhead's worth at least a touchdown in any game. As long as Ladainian doesn't run back kicks and sell beer in the stands, the Chiefs will cover. Chiefs 28, Chargers 27. Somehow I ignored the "at" and read "Arrowhead's worth at least a touchdown" and assumed the game was in KC. There goes 5 or so confidence points. Thanks for nothing, fraz...
