LCB NFL Picks: Week 3

New York Jets v Miami Dolphins @ 8:20 on NBC
Langston: The big news this week was Braylon Edwards getting a DWI in New York City, one of the few cities in the World with as many cabs as hookers and the city with the best public transportation system in the country. But he wasn't crushed in the media for any of those reasons or even for the DWI per se, he was crushed for not using a 24/7 safe ride program that was just implemented by the Jets. In what World does this make sense? He's a millionaire; taxis, car services, and public transportation are all in his budget. In reality, he could have rented a helicopter and pilot for the night. Tell me, if you had the money that you wouldn't take advantage of renting a helicopter. I would probably go bankrupt using copter service. If I believed Karma existed, the Jets would lose this game. And I'm pulling for that to happen since Rex Ryan will be ten times more entertaining with a team that tanks it. As for this game, I like the Dolphins to take this, their defense is improved and Chad Henne is turning into a franchise QB now that he actually has a suitable target, imagine that, a QB plays better when surrounded by better players. Phins 24, Jets 18.

Berndon: After watching "Hard Knocks" all August, I feel as though I know everything there is to know about the New York Football Jets. This means that America knows they have a stout D, and an inconsistent to terrible offense. And with Braylon Edwards doing his best Brendan Brody impression on Tuesday morning, they now have about 2 and a half options to throw to. Miami also has a good D, and now another weapon in Brandon Marshall, who will put up gaudy numbers with Revis being out. Don't ask me why, but I'm still going with the Jets. 21-17.


Green Bay Packers v Chicago Bears @ 8:30 on ESPN
Langston: This game should be pretty awesome. The Bears look improved under Mike Martz, with Matt Forte starting to be a threat in the passing game, Jay Cutler relying heavily on the great Greg Olsen and not throwing up all over himself, Urlacher being healthy and leading a dominate run defense. The Packers have in Clay Matthews maybe the best pass rusher in the league (6 sacks in 2 games), a potent offense led by Aaron Rodgers, and a much improved defense; all that for a team that last year locked up the wild card. So who has the edge? The Bears have the better running game, offensively and defensively. The Packers have the better passing game, offensively and defensively. Special teams is a push. Coaching a push. Basically, it could go either way. I see this game coming down to the passing game, who makes the biggest mistake, something that is always waiting in the wings for Jay Cutler. Packers 31, Bears 28.

Berndon: The Bears will win. I could go scientific and technical and tell you why by talking about Cutler, Urlacher, Peppers etc. But I won't, I will simply say that watching our defense play, I'm gettting the exact same feeling I had when we made it to the Super Bowl. The feeling that offenses will never be able to run against us, they might throw a little bit, and that we will always get a turnover when we need it.  Defense wins championships, and while that's probably a little premature, the Bears will take an important step getting there, with 28-20 win at home.
