NFL 2012 Pick'em: Week One

The 2012 NFL season has already kicked off. What could possibly make life sweeter? How about a free contest with the incredible prize of a framed haiku poem by author Andrew Wice? Handwritten and custom-framed in blonde aspen wood, this prize is sure to liven up your guest bedroom or garage with a subtle message of beauty and loss. Or, if you don't want that, I'll write a dirty limerick in your honor. Your choice!

This year's pick'em is obviously off to a stumbling start. It will start in full swing starting early next week, I promise. But for the rest of Week One, what's wrong with generating some BONUS POINTS to get the ball rolling and hopefully deliver a lead to me, your long-suffering Pick Master.

This week only, all correct picks will be worth +1.

Please leave your picks in the comments section. These will be the categories every week:

The Big Shoe-In
Pick the one team that will definitely win.

The Little Shoe-In

Pick one team that will probably win.

Pick the longshot underdog of the week, drawing from a weekly Underdog List.

I Dislike Your Favorite Team
Each week you may either pick your favorite team to win or you may pick your most disliked team to lose. Your favorite and least favorite can't change during the season.

Exempli gratia, my favorite team will always be the DC Skins, while the Dallas Cowpucky will always be my most disliked team.

The Original Clash of the Titans
Get back to basics. A featured Game Of The Week pick.

2. Your Little Shoe-In? +1
