NFL Picks Week 1: How Will the League Shape Up After This Weekend?

The 2011 NFL Regular Season is right around the corner. In fact, it starts tonight.

After a long and less-than-suspenseful offseason lockout, sports fans can rejoice in the fact that football is back on the air. The biggest games of the year are fresh in our mind, but it's tough to remember exactly how the teams all stacked up in 2010.

Starting Thursday night, an entirely new year takes hold and the debates can begin anew.

There are so many questions that won't be answered for weeks and months to come.

Will the Green Bay Packers do what so few have done before and repeat their Super Bowl Championship?

Will the Philadelphia Eagles lay truth to their new title as the "Dream Team?"

Will the Detroit Lions live up to their preseason hype?

Will Cincinnati or Cleveland ever challenge Pittsburgh and Baltimore for the AFC North division title?

And will Tim Tebow ever find his way into the Denver Broncos' starting position? Just kidding, nobody's truthfully wondering that.

The answers surely will not come during week one. But nevertheless, the week looks to be packed with excitement. It feels like Christmas morning all over again.

Let's take a look forward at this weekend's games as I do my best to predict each winner and loser as we all start the season together.
