"Everybody loves me, babies, dogs, hot girls, cougars." -The Situation

If you're not watching MTV's Jersey Shore, make sure you start. It might be the most amazing series premiere I've ever seen. Like a car crash, it's tough to watch, but I can't pull myself away from it. Lube Tube and I are absolutely live blogging the next episode. J-WOWW, Snooki, The Situation, Ronnie, EPIC CHARACTERS. If this show was on HBO or Shotime, it would be the best show of all time. Scratch that, I wish this had it's own U-Stream, so we could watch every single thing these kids do. Thanks Ally for the BBM telling me to watch this classic.

More on that on Thursday, now it's time for this week's NFL picks.

CLEVELAND (+10) over Pittsburgh
The Browns are bad, but that's worse than awful, which is what they were earlier in the year. They've been in the game the last three weeks (@ Detroit, @ Cincinnati, vs. San Diego) and are starting to look like a bottom-5 team in the league - as opposed to a bottom-2 team. The Steelers have been sliding for a month and The Clocktower's unbeaten record in Ohio fell earlier this year, so it's no longer a guarantee he's going to win when in his home state. I like the Steelers to win, but not in a blowout.

Cincinnati (+6.5) over MINNESOTA
Who Dey has only lost one game by more than a score all season (Week 6 vs. Houston) and I don't see them losing to Minny by more than that. Favre threw two picks last week after throwing just three all season before that. The Bengals are top-10 in both INTs and sacks, and they should put enough pressure on the ol gunslinger to force a couple turnovers and keep this one close, if not winning outright.

Miami (+3) over JACKSONVILLE
The Jaguars had around 42,000 people in attendance during last week's win vs. the Texans. That's just over half capacity (78k and change) and with Dolphins fans all over Florida, expect some (lighter) teal and orange to fill up a few seats in Jacksonville Municipal this Sunday. The Fins have boatloads of confidence after beating NE and winning six of their last nine. They could sneak into the final wildcard position with a win vs. the Jags this Sunday.

OAKLAND (+1) over Washington
Oakland has beaten two good teams in the last few weeks (vs. Cinci and @ Pittsburgh) and the 'Skins can't even squeeze out a win when they're up late (see: @ Dallas and vs. New Orleans). Gradkowski has been playing well since taking over for good from Jamarcus Russell with a 2-1 record and six TDs while tossing just one ball to the guys in the other colored jerseys.
