NFL picks: week 9

We're right around the halfway point, so mid-season review time.

Most valuable player(s): Chicago defense. Lowest points and yards per game allowed, and they won at least one game by themselves. No way would the Bears be where they are without their D. Probably going to lose some swagger with Brown out for the year, but they'll still be tough to handle. Other candidates include Peyton Manning, Michael Vick, Drew Brees, LaDanian Tomlinson, and Larry Johnson.

Least valuable player: Dante Culpepper. The Dolphins wish that they could have a redo and sign Brees instead of Culpepper. Two TDs to go along with three picks and 21 (!) sacks in four games. Yeesh. Other candidates include Ben Roethlisberger, Kerry Collins, and the entire Raiders, Redskins, Cardinals, and Lions teams.

Coach of the half-year: I'll wuss out and go with Lovie Smith of the Bears, although what Sean Payton is doing with the Saints is impressive. Eric Mangini has also done a decent job with the Jets.

Coach most likely to get canned: Joe Gibbs. That much money dropped into the team and they have a 2-5 record to show for it, and not much of a bright future. Denny Green would be the run away choice here, but with the Bidwells still owning the Cards, they're too cheap to pay the buyout.

Game of the half-year: Bears/Cards on Monday night in week 6. What a finish.

Team to watch out for in the second half: Vikings. They play the Cards, Dolphins, 49ers, and Lions who have a total of 5 wins between them. Other than the Bears, a pretty easy schedule.

Team to get out from under: Eagles. They still have the Colts and the Falcons, not to mention three consecutive road division games. It's not looking good for the Iggles.

Last week, Pat takes the weekly honors at 10-4 while Talga finishes one back. Overall, jdawg has a two game lead over myself, with Talga and skihard one back of me.

If the Giants lose to the Texans this week because they're looking ahead to the Bears next week, I'll cry.
