I wanted the Panthers to go after Chip Kelly at the end of last season and I believe he would’ve taken the job. My mind was running wild watching Michael Vick run his offense last night. I truly believe Cam Newton could’ve been an MVP contender in that kind of system. But we will never know. Now, I like Ron Rivera, and hope he survives this season. But what would’ve given the Panthers the best chance to win? It’s not even close.

Picks this week (10-6 first week)
Pats over Jets
Fins at Colts
Balt over Cle
Philly over SD
Hou over Ten
Buf over Caro
Atl over StL
Chi over Min
GB over Wash
KC over Dal
Nola at TB
Ariz over Det
NYG over Den
Oak over Jax
Sea over SF
Cincy over Pit

I would hope this is the most prepared Nick Saban team that will ever take the field on Saturday in College Station. Why? Because Saban has had last year’s loss to Texas A&M playing on a loop in the Alabama weight room since January. I would expect an inspired Tide to beat the Aggies this weekend.

UNM +21 at Pitt
Wake -3.5 vs ULM
USC -14.5 vs BC
