sepulvedaWell, the Lineman got the season off to a perfect start (click the link). Steelers get the win, Titans cover, score one for the Lineman.

We will bask in the glory while it lasts because the Lineman understands this is just the first play in a long season. Let’s hope we are still on the right side of the scoreboard come Tuesday.

Record won-loss: 1-0.

PICK OF THE WEEK: Minnesota Vikings at Cleveland Browns (plus 3.5): Future Hall of Famer Brett Favre is back (again) and has something to prove. Adrian Peterson is the NFL’s top running back.

The poor Browns aren’t catching any breaks in Week 1 with the NFL allowing Vikings defensive linemen Kevin Williams and Pat Williams (two of the best in the business) to continue to play while their long-running drugs saga works it way through appeals.

steelersAnother NFL season is upon us and the Lineman knows there is no chance of it being a perfect one. But hey, it’s not whether you win or lose; it’s if you covered the spread.

Each week this NFL season the Lineman will offer up his Pick-of-the-Week plus his top five other games. So have some fun, go one-on-one with the Lineman and see you at the Super Bowl.
