Rolfe Comes Alive! With His NFL Picks

"I want you; To show me the way" -- Peter Frampton

Rolfe showed his loyal readers the way to the bank, with a 10-3-1 record last week. Can he continue the good times in Week 9?

CHARGERS (-7.5) over Jets- Gang Green pulled one out of their old playbook- jumping to a big lead before falling apart on both sides of the ball and blowing the game. The 6-1 Bolts end the misery early in this one.

Jaguars (+3) over GIANTS- The N.J. football season is over before Halloween.

BILLS (-2.5) over Patriots- The N.Y. football season is still going strong, with Bledsoe and the Soldiers still rolling. Think Drew's going to be a little fired up for this one?

Vikings (+7.5) over BUCS- Vikes showed what they're capable of last week, while TB is hurting. Don't bet on a Purple victory, but they should keep it within a TD.

FALCONS (-6) over Ravens- Who's the best young QB in the NFL - Vick or McNabb?

Eagles (-6) over BEARS- Rolfe says it's still Mcnabb, as Giant fans saw Monday night.

Steelers (-3) over BROWNS- OK, I resisted for as long as I could. I am now joining the Tommy Maddox bandwagon.

Cowboys (+3) over LIONS- Now that Emmitt has the record, the Boys can focus on the actual game.

Bengals (+3) over TEXANS- If Cincy doesn't win this one, they should be contracted.

COLTS (-3.5) over Titans- As bad a game as Cincy-Houston, without the laughs.

49ers (+3) over OAKLAND- Battle of the Bay would be a lot more exciting if the Silver and Black weren't so black and blue.

Rams (-3) over CARDS- Mike Martz is one week smarter after the bye. Cardinals still starting Jake Plummer.

Redskins (+3) over SEAHAWKS- Seattle signed Jeff George, the QB with the worst winning percentage of all time, earlier this week. More proof that Green Bay was right not to give Mike Holgrem the GM duties he got from the 'Hawks.

PACKERS (-6) over Dolphins- What was the first rule I taught in this column earlier in the year? Never bet against Brett Favre (except when there is possibility of him helping a Giant set a tainted record). This goes double for a prime time game. Mammals still have Ray Lucas at QB, and the addition of Cris Carter is going to hurt them more than help.

OTHER NEWS- I am not an NBA fan, but I am getting this odd feeling that the Knicks aren't going to be that good this season.... I will watch any game between the Lakers-Kings, however, hoping to see another slap fight break out, and Doug Christie's wife attempt to come to his rescue.... After giving Fireman Head a mention in this article, fellow Skins' nuts Eddie the Umpire, Rabbit, Scooter and Tommy Bullfrog asked for some ink of their own.

Apparently wacky nicknames and good looks are a pre-requisite for joining the Washington fanclub.... Seperate billboards in Jersey advertised that both Rush and Boston are coming out with new albums. But when it comes to 70's stadium rock, Rolfe says there was none better than Frampton.... After claiming that he could pick more winners, although he knows nothing about football, the self-proclaimed "Devilishly Handsome Sully" did not return e-mails asking for his selections.... I miss Bobby Valentine already.

BEST BET: Rams

SEASON RECORD: 56-57-3
