Zach Ertz's quest for greatness led him to three of the NFL's all-time best as mentors this offseason. But his search for one wouldn't have happened had he not met Ronnie Lott. A mutual friend brought Lott to dinner one day in January. Ertz, of course, knew of the former 49ers defensive back. He grew up in the San Francisco area and attended Stanford, but he had never met arguably the best safety of all time. Lott also knew of Ertz. He was familiar with the Eagles tight end and his promising first two seasons, but also that something was missing.

  Line: Jets by 21/2. The skinny: The Ravens are a hot choice to go far this year. They have bulked up their offense by bringing in receivers Anquan Boldin and T.J. Houshmandzadeh, joining versatile running back Ray Rice, dependable wideout Derrick Mason, and healthy-at-last tight end Todd Heap. Their defense always is formidable. Some observers would say the Jets are doing everything the right way, adding stars such as LaDainian Tomlinson, Jason Taylor, Santonio Holmes, and Antonio Cromartie to their lineup.

Alex Smith will begin his first NFL season on the San Francisco bench. After struggling in both of his preseason starts, Smith was told yesterday by coach Mike Nolan that Tim Rattay will open the season at quarterback against St. Louis. "I know how this works," said Smith, the top overall pick in this year's draft. "This is a team game. This isn't all about me. I think the team wants to win now. We expect to win now, and as of right now, this looks like the right decision.

Dwayne Allen, Colts: Until either Allen or Coby Fleener emerges, there's no fun in being involved in a tight-end-by-committee. Shame too, because Indy has the look of being very pass-heavy. Jordan Cameron, Browns: Don't let Cleveland's uncertainty at quarterback be too big of an influence. Cameron caught seven touchdowns last year - from four different guys. Vernon Davis, 49ers: Those 15 TDs from a year ago are attractive, but don't reach too highly here. His numbers sagged slightly when wide receiver Michael Crabtree rejoined the lineup.

Donovan McNabb's 35 com- pletions tied his career high. His previous 35-completion game also came against the Chargers, in 2005. The Eagles have committed just one turnover in the first half all season. DeSean Jackson, who had a career-high eight receptions, had 16 passes targeted for him. He had had more than five passes thrown his way in just one of the Eagles' previous five games. The Eagles have scored on their first possession just four times in nine games.

Chased from their homes and practice fields by deadly wildfires, the San Diego Chargers headed home last night and will play the Houston Texans at Qualcomm Stadium tomorrow as scheduled. "That's the best news I've heard since this happened," running back LaDainian Tomlinson said. "I never thought I'd feel so good just going home. " The team worked out for a final time at the Arizona Cardinals' facility in Tempe yesterday afternoon, then boarded buses to the airport for the flight to San Diego.

So it appears Tom Brady isn't quite finished yet. And the Patriots defense that cost me a win last week by actually producing negative points proved they can still be a formidable fantasy play. The Matt Asiata juggernaut hit a serious speed bump on Thursday night, but Eddie Lacy is back in fine form. Any worries about Arian Foster's health were put aside in Dallas, for one week anyway. But the natives are getting restless waiting for LeSean McCoy to break out. If he doesn't have a solid outing against the Giants on Sunday night, his fantasy owners might start calling him "Trady.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 3 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers at Bills. Buffalo may be 2-0, but it has been soft in the passing game. Meanwhile, Rivers and Antonio Gates are BFFs again, and it's only a matter of time before Keenan Allen explodes. With Ryan Mathews sidelined, Rivers will need to be at his best, and he is up to the task. Bernard Pierce, RB, Ravens at Browns. Now that Pierce is seemingly locked into the lead-back role in Baltimore (with Justin Forsett taking a backseat in Week 2)

THE MORE THINGS change, the more they stay the same. The Eagles have a vibrant new head coach and an exciting, new, warp-speed offense that has put up 63 points in two games. They also have a defense that has the very same problem that last year's unit had: It can't get off the field on third down to save its life. The Chargers converted nine of 12 third-down opportunities in the second half yesterday in their 33-30 win over the Eagles. Quarterback Philip Rivers, who threw for 419 yards and three touchdowns, completed nine of 10 third-down passes for 113 yards, a touchdown and eight first downs in the final two quarters.

THE PITTSBURGH Steelers are turning their visit to New York this weekend to face the Giants into a day trip. The Steelers will leave for New York on Sunday morning and depart Sunday evening. NFL teams are required to travel the day before a game. The league allowed the Steelers to alter their plans because the hotel the team is booked to stay at in Jersey City was still without power as of Thursday afternoon. Pittsburgh will fly at 9 a.m. on Sunday and arrive in New York about 90 minutes later, well ahead of the scheduled 4:25 p.m. kickoff.

Wondering whether to start Arian Foster and Calvin Johnson, or to bench Tim Tebow and Steve Breaston? The network bozos specialize in that kind of advice. If you're looking for help with your real starting lineup conundrums, read on. Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 3 of the 2012 season.   Watch 'em roll Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals at Redskins. Washington's pass rush took a major hit last week with the loss of Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker. Dalton should have plenty of time to pick apart the same secondary that Sam Bradford torched in Week 2. He also has the advantage of better receivers than the Rams.

SAN DIEGO - Tebow Time had just seconds to spare in overtime before the Denver Broncos beat the staggering San Diego Chargers. Matt Prater kicked a 37-yard field goal with 29 seconds left in overtime to lift Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos to a 16-13 victory Sunday over the Chargers, who've lost six straight games for the first time in 10 years. The Broncos narrowly avoided the first NFL tie since the Eagles and Cincinnati tied at 13-13 on Nov. 16, 2008. Tebow, now 5-1 as the Broncos' starter, led Denver from its 43 after San Diego's Nick Novak was wide right on a 53-yard field goal attempt with 2 minutes, 31 seconds left in overtime.

  Line: Chargers by 91/2. The skinny: The San Diego Chargers will continue to try to salvage their season when they host Denver. The Chargers are 4-5, even with a two-game winning streak. The Broncos are 3-6. "If you just look at divisions and records, it probably doesn't stack up as one of the toughest," said Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, who's on a pace to shatter Dan Marino's season record of 5,084 yards passing. "But you also could look at each game and how they've been won or lost.
