Gridiron Guru: Thanks to the Redskins, nobody's perfect

Nobody's perfect.

Well, at least not in the Gridiron Guru thanks to the hated Washington Redskins beating the New Orleans Saints. Self-proclaimed NFL Idiot Scooter Hendon leads the pack after Week 1. But as they always say, there's plenty of football left.

The Standings

Scooter Hendon: 4-1

Scott McCoy: 3-2

Seth Schrock: 3-2

Keeli Garza: 2-3

David Thomas: 2-3

This week's picks
Arizona at Washington (-3)

Seth Schrock: NFL "Expert"/Human: The Cardinals haven’t started a season 3-0 since 1974. That year, America saw sky-rocketing gas prices, a President with a disapproval rating in the 60 percent range and the Boston Celtics win the NBA Finals. Sound familiar? Look for history to continue to repeat itself this weekend. Pick: Cardinals 24, Redskins 20.

Keeli Garza: Cardinals 27, Redskins 17

Scooter Hendon: Redskins 30, Cardinals 13

Scott McCoy: Redskins 21, Cardinals 20

David Thomas: Cardinals 27-24

Pittsburgh at Philadelphia (-3.5)

Scott McCoy, Fantasy Sports "Genius"/Resident Hater: The Eagles were on a short week and most of their preparation time went into explaining to DeSean Jackson that possession is ninth-tenths of the law when it comes to scoring touchdowns. He won't even have the chance to mess up this week. Pick: Steelers 24, Eagles 14

Keeli Garza: Steelers 27, Eagles 24

Scooter Hendon: Eagles 28, Steelers 14

Seth Schrock: Eagles 27, Steelers 24

David Thomas: Eagles 24-17

Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts (-5 1/2)

David Thomas, "Expert" Picker/Humor Columnist: You know Colts running back Joseph Addai is having a difficult time getting things going this season when it’s taking him eight carries just to get to his newspaper on the front lawn each morning. Pick: Colts 23, Jaguars 20.

Keeli Garza: Jaguars 24, Colts 21

Scooter Hendon: Colts 24, Jaguars 21

Scott McCoy: Colts 27, Jaguars 14

Seth Schrock: Colts 24, Jaguars 17

Keeli Garza: Texans 14, Titans 10

Scott McCoy: Titans 17, Texans 13

Seth Schrock: Titans 19, Texans 17

Scott McCoy: Cowboys 31, Packers 17

Seth Schrock: Cowboys 34, Packers 31
