Eric's Week 4 Picks
Carolina at Atlanta -7
Atlanta is getting a lot of “Best
Team” hype after San Fran’s defeat at the hands of the Vikings. The passing
game is as explosive as they come and they’re doing a great job of protecting
Matty Ice. The running game leaves an awful lot to be desired. DUI aside,
Turner’s effectiveness is waning. Running backs often experience a precipitous
decline once they reach 30. Quizz Rodgers doesn’t appear to be the answer
either. Can the Falcons make a serious run as a 1 dimensional offense? Maybe
not, but it’s more than enough to cover against the Panthers.
Carolina looks disjointed. Cam
Newton’s sophomore slump must end for Carolina to capitalize and make a
wildcard run. At times, Newton looks lost as a passer. Teams simply need to
focus on limiting the Panthers’ run game and Newton’s deficiencies as a passer
take care of the rest. On the other side of the ball, Carolina fails to get
much of a rush. Opposing QBs have been given too much time to pick apart the
Panther’s relatively young defense. Atlanta runs away with this one.
CAR 13 ATL 31
San Francisco -4.5 @ New York Jets
Could losing the (arguably) best
player in your franchise’s history hurt? Kyle Wilson is a solid player but the
drop off is immense. This will change the nature of Rex Ryan’s defense; a
defense that must play well given the erratic nature of Mark Sanchez and the
relative ineptitude of Shonn Greene. SF took a surprise beating in Minnesota.
They’re a resilient bunch and Harbaugh will surely have them prepared to run
wild in the new Meadowlands.
SF 24 NYJ 12
New York Giants +2.5 @ Philadelphia
Michael Vick isn’t going to win a
championship as a starting quarterback. The Eagles are slowly and somewhat
painfully coming to this same conclusion. With a rookie backup and with some
much invested in Vick, Reid will diligently march ahead. Give the ball to
McCoy, ask less of Vick, and allow your Wide 9 do the dirty work. It’s not
within Reid’s nature, but he must adapt to succeed.
NYG 33 – PHI 23
New England -4 @ Buffalo
NE 30 BUFF 24
Minnesota +4 @ Detroit
MIN 17 DET 21
San Diego -1.5 @ Kansas City
SD 30 KC 20
Seattle -3 @ St Louis
I’m a little late to the NFC West
bandwagon but it appears the division boasts 3 premier defenses. Seattle’s pass
rush and big secondary continues to impress. Overshadowed by the game stealing
play in Green Bay on Monday night, the Seahawks defense slowed the explosive
Green Bay offense to a crawl. Seattle’s lone loss at the hands of Arizona looks
much better in retrospect after the Cards’ 3-0 start.
