This year’s championship game will be featuring two of the best quarterbacks in the league squaring off against each other, with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. It should be a great game. Oh yeah, Brady and Manning will face off again in the other conference’s final. Yawn!! That’s right folks, the […]


I’ve been taking the back seat for nearly a year now, listening to everyone else spout their opinions about the Arizona Cardinals, describing with passion why they didn’t think the Cardinals have been for real, boldly predicting that the Seattle Seahawks would “flip the switch” any minute now and take back the NFC West, a […]


By now, Bears fans everywhere should be hoping that I pick the lowly team from Chicago to lose. This season, that simple act has guaranteed victory for da’ Bears every time. Sorry Bears fans. I’m not touching that piece of &%$# team again this season! On paper, they should be walking away with their division. […]


At this point in the season, I’m looking for anything positive to grab hold of. After picking perfectly for three or four weeks, I seem to have fallen into a funk lately, especially in the Upset category. So when I found a glimmer of hope, I grabbed it. I have finally found a trend that […]


Okay, I give up. Just when you think you’ve got this league figured out, it all gets turned upside down again. For example, I figured that Rivers and the Chargers had enough offensive power to go to Miami and give the Dolphins a good battle, leaving town as the victor. The problem is, the Chargers […]


Last week was one for the record books. The Redskins start their third string QB and beat the Cowboys on the road and the Saints decided to finally play some football and ran over (literally) the Packers, handing me a loss in the Lock and the Upset categories. The only one I got right was […]


Well, I was watching the games last week, feeling pretty good about my predictions when POOF, they disappeared in an instant. A late interception here, a last minute field goal there, and I went from a perfect 3-0 to a measly 1-2 at the snap of a finger or two! So will it get any […]


My ego took a bruising last week, dropping two of my three picks, thanks to the NFC East remaining as unpredictable as ever. Maybe I’ll give that division a week off for bad behavior. I’m not sure things will improve this week, though. Have you looked at the schedule? I don’t see any of the […]


Alright, my undefeated streak ended last week when KC couldn’t make the magic happen in Santa Clara (for those of you that are scratching your head and trying to figure what NFL team is from Santa Clara, Google the 49ers new stadium!). However, having picked eight of the past nine games correctly, I’m still feeling […]


Okay, now we’re rolling. After playing .500 ball for the first two weeks of the season, yours truly has been a perfect six for six over the past two weeks. Maybe now I’ll get some respect! Sorry, couldn’t help throwing in some Rodney humor. But admit it folks, he was one of the best!   […]
