    Default Lolley's week #1 pick

    Saturday, September 11, 2010
    Who I like, Week 1

    This isn't likely to garner me any friends here, but I like the Falcons this week for a couple of different reasons.

    First is obviously Dennis Dixon starting at QB.

    I think the Steelers will try to play things close to the vest to limit his mistakes and that will be a mistake. It's like playing not to lose rather than playing to win.

    Also, unlike Baltimore last season, the Falcons have had time to prepare to face Dixon. They'll have something drawn up to limit his scrambling ability and take advantage of the things he doesn't do well throwing the ball - ie. checking off his first option.

    Finally, there is the old hidden vigorish. The Steelers have the league's longest active winning streak to start the season at seven. They have also won their past seven home openers.

    The longer streaks like that go on, the more likely they are to end.

    That's why I like the Falcons to win this one, 16-13.

    What Lolley didn't figure in which is something we all needed to see as well is the Defense make the plays needed when needed. Troy's INt, stopping the Falcons in OT in their opening drive...

    We overcame Dixon's performance where I think he felt, like some rightfully would that we wouldn't be able to

    I predicted a win weeks ago btw
