Those who were with us on our infamous playoff run know how high we were on Carolina as a team even though in the one-game format advised taking Denver. We stated in a multiple game format we’d take Carolina. Here we are…
We’ve a systematic way of making our picks which are based on value. We typically avoid using strictly our football observations. We normally have unanimity in our selections at the site, but not on this game. Our system says the value is on Denver, but our football opinion says Carolina wipes the floor with them.
This is similar to our Notre Dame – Texas debate where we correctly went with our system and picked Texas. But that was unanimous. This isn’t.
But it is the first NFL game of the season and we need to make a pick. Sometimes you have to get away from the system. As editor, I’m the tie breaker.
