Ive officially decided to stick with Atlanta and Green Bay this weekend. I was leaning towards the Seahawks for a bit but losing Clemons, Lynch not practicing all week, and them having to travel to Atlanta to play a noon game which is basically like 10 AM for them makes me feel they wont have their A game. I also have the gut feeling Atlanta shows up.
Green Bay is basically I trust Aaron Rodgers a ton and Kaepernick not at all. Thats bout it. Green Bay's defense isnt bad when its healthy and they are now, so they should play well enough to win.
Denver/New England obviously as the other two. I would be shocked if either of them lost honestly

1. I think it's because he's the QB; a position that has a much larger impact on the teams success/future.
2. With the exception of Rainey, none of the other guys were cut. They just let them walk at the end of their contracts. Big Ben is in the middle of his deal (a deal that gave him $36 Mil. in guaranteed money). While I think his job was safer than any of the other guys I mentioned, I certainly wouldn't call it secure. He was already removed earlier this year (last year?) as team captain. I'd imagine that he doesn't have many (if any) chances left.
Trent Williams fined $7,875 for shoving Richard Sherman. Kinda thought it would be more honestly.
Also I wouldn't worry about Lynch not practicing. There have been a few times this year where he missed a week or 2/3 practices.

Rumor is Rob Ryan has been hired at St. Louis as DC.
This scares me quite a bit. They already got a decent defense without a DC this year.
Not a fan of stats, but the Manning stat of being like 1-10 in cold weather games would make me nervous if I were a Broncos fan.
You know I find it pretty amusing that if you look at the stats the year Peyton won the Super Bowl was arguably his worst postseason statistically, yet because they won people use it to validate him as have gotten over the hump. When most his career he has been good in other games, they just happened to lose. This idea QBs is all about winning and losing is stupid.

Damn it Torrey Smith stop making Flacco look good.
This is a pretty fun game to watch so far. Can't wait to watch the Green Bay game next.
I want the Ravens too pull this one out.... give Ray his last chance. I have a feeling its going to end with a high score.
As long as denver is allowed to tackle the guys on defense and call it a block, they are going to win.
