2009 NFL Suicide Pick Week 9

Going with Norv and the Chargers is always scary but they came through for us last week.  
Baltimore, Washington, Minnesota, Indy, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New England and San Diego are all off the board.

I'm tempted to roll with Atlanta this week against Washington but they are coming off a tough loss to the Saints on Monday night and Washington had the week off.  Atlanta wins but I will pass on making them the official pick.

As I'm sure you are all aware of, Tampa Bay is awful and they will be hard pressed to win more than 1 game this year.  Green Bay travels there this week and should prevail but they might have a Favre hangover so I'm passing.

The Saints continue to look like the best team in football.  They are home against Carolina this week and they should continue to roll.

Im stumped this week. I kinda like 3 teams - Seattle, Atlanta, and New Orleans. I want to pick NO but that game just screams TRAP. Carolina has been running all over everyone. New Orleans looked beatable against the Doll Fans last week. While I think their secondary will give Delhomme fits, I just have a bad feeling about it. I've also already taken them in week 1 but in my league you can pick a team twice as long as its not 2 weeks in a row (I know, insanely lame. I hate this rule, especially since it makes the season last so much longer but there is no changing it.) Im trying to pick a different team each week just for my own personal satisfaction and thats why Im leaning towards Seattle, at home, against the hapless Lions.

Im gonna do more research and be back with my official pick. We're gonna have to start taking the crappy teams soon...

I actually like Seattle too and considered using them but I just don't trust them enough.

I know and with Smith and Megatron both possibly returning it makes picking Seattle even tougher.

I am with you guys, although I could see atlanta losing this week with washington working "the world is against us." I have two leagues going and will be taking the saints and green bay. I think green bay is a lock this week with tampa just being a total mess. I considered seattle but who knows. good luck
