Hawk’s Monday Night Football Picks: Week 1

mnf-logo
Doubleheader
 4:10PM PST
Pittsburgh Steelers at Washington Redskins
(+2.5) (O/U 49.0)
 
I think it will be interesting to see two of the best in the game at their positions go at in this one as PSteelers receiver Antonio Brown will face off against cornerback Josh Norman. Brown is one of the most unstoppable receivers in the game, but Norman is good enough to keep him semi contained.


Either way the Steelers have a stacked offense and should find a way to get it done against Washington.
 
Pick: Steelers 31-20

Dallas Cowboys

Last season Dallas went 12-4 and won a playoff game for only the second time in the Tony Romo era, before losing the next round to the Packers in the years most controversial call:

Cowboys fans are back to their cocky, over confident selves again, but they have reason to be optimistic. Romo had the best year of his career, leading the league in completion percentage (69.9) and passer rating (113.2), running back DeMarco Murray led the league in rushing yards…. handily with 1845, the next highest was Le’Veon Bell at 1361, damn near 500 yards less, which is unheard of.
Oh wait, they let Murray go which means injury prone Darren McFadden, who for the most part has underachieved his entire career will most likely get the start. Him, Lance Dunbar or Joseph Randle, who aren’t exactly household names.
Pundits are quick to say that because Dallas has the best offensive line in the league, their running game will be just fine. I’m here to tell you that won’t necessarily be the case. These are significant downgrades at the position. I don’t care how good your line is you still have to have a back that has enough strength and vision to succeed. Murray had it but I don’t know about the guys on the current roster.
 
Other issues that will face this team will most certainly be a questionable pass defense and having a roster that is chock full of trouble makers. Aside from being notoriously immature and whiny Dez Bryant was at one point accused of assaulting his mom and Pro Bowl D Lineman Greg Hardy was involved in one of the most sickening domestic abuse scandals in NFL history. Dallas also signed Undrafted rookie OT La’el Collins, who was projected as a first round pick before becoming a suspect in the murder of his pregnant ex girlfriend, but obviously he was not convicted.
It doesn’t stop there though. LB Rolando McClain was arrested for resisting arrest, Joseph Randle was arrested twice in 4 months. Once for shoplifting and once for drug charges. He was also investigated for domestic abuse.
Unless Darren McFadden explodes this year and Dallas has one of the best counselors in the world on their staff all signs point to a down year for them. Sorry Cowboys faithful but I expect another 8-8 year.
