I think the Steelers will beat the bye week ... at least I hope they do. ;)

So, here are my feelings about last week's picks...as well as the Raiders game:
Now that that's out of the way, let me say that I may have to start making a thread for picks on Wednesday, as that's when I typically make mine. When I wait for this thread to be made I never seem to be able to make my picks before the Thursday game starts...but I don't want to clutter up the board. Thoughts?
ANYHOW, here are my picks, (and I swear I already had the Ravens! I swear!):

I really like the use of the word Foo. As a computer geek, it brings back fond memories of college programming days:
From wikipedia (for the uninformed):
The terms foobar /ˈfuːbɑːr/ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:IPA_for_English#Key), fubar, or foo, bar, baz and qux (alternatively quux) are sometimes used as placeholder names (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Placeholder_name) (also referred to as metasyntactic variables (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metasyntactic_variable)) in computer programming (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_programming) or computer-related documentation. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foobar#cite_note-rfc3092-0) They have been used to name entities such as variables (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variable_%28computer_science%29), functions (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Function_%28computer_science%29), and commands (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command_%28computing%29) whose purpose is unimportant and serve only to demonstrate a concept. The words themselves have no meaning in this usage. Foobar is sometimes used alone; foo, bar, and baz are sometimes used in that order, when multiple entities are needed.

I'm assuming you know the original definition of "fubar", MJG: "f'ed up beyond all recognition" (from the military). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_military_slang_terms#FUBAR
Anyhow, looks like both Peter King and I went 10-5. This brings my season total to 36-27. Peter King is at 33-30.
