[B]Bye week:[/B] Colts, Steelers

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 [B]foobar[/B] [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:IPA_for_English#Key"]/ˈfuːbɑːr/[/URL], fubar, or [B]foo[/B], [B]bar[/B], [B]baz[/B] and [B]qux[/B] (alternatively [B]quux[/B]) are sometimes used as [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Placeholder_name"]placeholder names[/URL] (also referred to as [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metasyntactic_variable"]metasyntactic variables[/URL]) in [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_programming"]computer programming[/URL] or computer-related documentation.[SUP][URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foobar#cite_note-rfc3092-0"][/URL][/SUP] They have been used to name entities such as [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variable_%28computer_science%29"]variables[/URL], [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Function_%28computer_science%29"]functions[/URL], and [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command_%28computing%29"]commands[/URL] whose purpose is unimportant and serve only to demonstrate a concept. The words themselves have no meaning in this usage. [I]Foobar[/I] is sometimes used alone; [I]foo[/I], [I]bar[/I], and [I]baz[/I] 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). [URL]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_military_slang_terms#FUBAR[/URL]
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.
