    Should we be worried?

    NFL Picks and Predictions for Week 6 - National Football League - ESPN

    I mean, I don't think the Patriots will underestimate the Cowboys at all. They had their wakeup call in Buffalo. But it feels kinda weird having nearly all the experts pick for our team this time. Do any of you guys miss that 'underdog' feeling or do you much prefer feeling confident going into the games that the Pats have a great chance of winning them?

    I never put much stock into what these "experts" predict. Most of them wouldn't do very well in Vegas. In my minds eye, we're always the underdog.

    Go to the 1:00 mark. Did the ESPN talking head really refer to the Pats best receiver as " Wes Walker" and repeated it later. You know, a fan can be forgiven but if you're a professional shouldn't you know who has the most catches and yards in the league??????

    This is NOT GOOD. I'm thinking Cowboys win by 2 scores. Who is going to cover Dez, Miles, & Witten? Pats D better be up for the challenge or it going to be a long day.

    The Patriots appear to be in the top echelon of teams. It should not come as a surprise that experts will favor them on a weekly basis.

    Yep. That doesn't affect Mort tho. He still picks against the Pats more than he picks them. That doosh has a genuine hatred for anything Patriots.

    He's got the worst record out of all those guys.
