Picks from a Maniac Maenad-Week 7

Welcome back, everybody...It's week 7 in the NFL, and we are almost at the halfway point. Outside of the New York Jets and the Steelers, it doesn't seem like anyone really wants to step up and take control of a division. The NFL went after the "headhunting" players and instituted new rules on tackling, while fining Brandon Meriweather, James Harrison, and Dunta Robinson for their week 6 hits. Harrison threatened to retire, and when everyone pretty much ignored him, slinked back to practice. My Chiefs have now lost two in a row. Quick recovery, boys, quick recovery.

Rumors are running wild as to where Shawne Merriman will land when he land-San Francisco? Baltimore? Washington? *Shrug* It was announced that Vincent Jackson was going to finally report to the Chargers in time to serve a 3 game suspension from the team, while his team is floundering posting losses to the Raiders and the Rams. The Chargers also have to deal with injuries to their seemingly cursed Linebacking corps. and to tight end Antonio Gates. Junior Seau was arrested, and then promptly drove his Cadillac Escalade off a cliff. Peyton Manning lost two receivers: WR Austin Collie for a couple of weeks, TE Dallas Clark for the season. The Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers continue to circle the toilet bowl which has become their season. Favre met with NFL officials, and his wife did the talk show rounds...zzzzzzz. Ben Roethlisberger played well. Jacksonville and Tennessee played one of the worse Monday Night Football game ever, both of the starting quarterbacks were knocked out of the game, and it still beat the ALCS in the ratings.

It would be awesome if one week all of my fantasy teams would win, but alas, it is not to be.
  • Hecates's HellHounds of the League of Champions league: 4-2 (Slipped up last week)
  • Kansas City Chiefs of the Dynasty Orginization League: 2-4 (Still stinking up the joint)
  • Runtelldat Homeboys of the Big Easy League: 2-4 (It's 14:59)
  • The Cromartie Eight of the Football Fist Pump League: 2-4 (Finally won a second game)
  • Matching Mugshots of the Atypical Sports Show League: 1-5 (Finally, won a game-The same week as the 49ers)
I went 8-6 for my picks last week bringing my record to 42-33. So, here are my picks for this week *drawing them out of the hat.* It can't be any worse than the rest right?
