Week 5 Picks, Preview, NFL Storylines Make sure you follow me @regisjwelch

Last week was another great week for Down the Line Sports Blog. It amazes me that how the wins can keep coming. We’ll get back to that later.

Since last week we found out that C.J. Spillman is connected to a sexual assault investigation. He remains on the Dallas roster. The Oakland Raiders became the first team to fire their head coach, Dennis Allen. The team was 0-4. Allen was fired over the phone after the team returned home after an embarrassing loss to the Miami Dolphins. He is rumored to become the new GM for the Oakland Athletics. The Raiders have had nine head coaches since Jon Gruden left in 2003.

She is worse than Dennis Allen!
She is worse than Dennis Allen!

I am tired of hearing about New England. The Patriots will win their division. Any questions, I didn’t think so. If Rex Ryan wants to keep his job he will make a decision at quarterback. Geno Smith sucks! Is Michael Vick better? Well he can’t be worse.

 Questions for the week?

  • Can we have a Thursday night game worth watching?
  • Who are the Pittsburgh Steelers and how could they lose to Tampa? AT HOME nonetheless?
  • Will Washington be drafting a QB in the next draft?
  • Will LeSean McCoy finally break free?
  • Are the Cowboys for real?
  • How will Alex Smith fair in his return to the bay area?
  • What is Cam Newton’s health situation?
  • Why did the Bills bench E.J Manuel? Who is Kyle Orton?

Any way to the Picks
