Best in show, Week 2

Here's what we've got for this week's picks in our charity pro football underdog game. Lots of players are throwing in with the Jets, and the Broncos are also popular:

9 TAMPA BAY at New York Giants - Ted
9 CLEVELAND at Cincinnati - Paul, Bob, Lucas, Gary, Dr.D
9 JACKSONVILLE vs. Houston - pdxmick, Pete Rozelle, John Ch.
6.5 NEW YORK JETS at Pittsburgh - Rudie, NoPoGuy, Gordon, John Cr., Bayou Baby, MickeyMac37NYC, Annie, Michael K., Tinknocker, Coastal Storm, Usual Kevin, Bad Brad
6.5 DETROIT at San Francisco - Carol, Broadway Joe
[6 CHICAGO at Green Bay (Thursday) - George, Jeremy, PDXileinOmaha, Will, genop, Eric W. -- did not prevail]
5.5 TENNESSEE at San Diego - Ricardo, Grizfan
3.5 KANSAS CITY at Buffalo - Tung, Biggest Cubs Loser, Cinderella Story, DB Cooper
3 DENVER at Atlanta (Monday) - Dave A., Drewbob, JMH, Sola, Juicen, genop's gal

If any of the underdogs (in caps) win their games outright, the players who picked them receive the corresponding number of points in the season-long standings.

Our usual note: These are the picks as of earlier this morning, several hours before the deadline. (This post is being triggered by a robot.) If additional picks have come in (or changes have been made) after this post was written but before the deadline, they will be added to this post as soon as we can get to it later today.

Have a great last Sunday of summer, and enjoy the games, everybody!

It is the Summer's great last heat,
It is the Fall's first chill: they meet.
Dust in the grass, dust in the air,
Dust in the grave and everywhere!
Ah, late rose, eaten to the heart:
Ah, bird, whose southward yearnings start:
The one may fall, the other fly.
Why may not I? Why may not I?

Oh, Life! that gave me for my dower
The hushing song, the worm-gnawed flower,
Let drop the rose from your shrunk breast
And blow the bird to some warm nest;
Flush out your dying colours fast:
The last dead leaf -- will be the last.
No? Must I wear your piteous smile
A little while, a little while?

UPDATE, 4:03 p.m.: "Pete Rose" says he emailed us yesterday afternoon, picking Seattle (3). The play, as they say, is under review, as we try to figure out why the email didn't get here. Seattle is coasting to a victory at this hour.

Speaking of summer passing, Jack, a question I thought to ask you after some scene I saw. Do you'all like to 'rough it' camping in the woods or a meadow -- tent, campfire, backpack, the whole primitive 'get away' scene?

So, Pete Rose, a guy we have never heard of before this season, claims that he picked the Seahawks while their ahead and cruising to victory? I'm calling b.s. on this one. This would be the first time this has happened in the history of the pool that an e-mail didn't make it in on time. Just sayin'. I'm pretty sure we/you are being punked on this one.
