The only thing more difficult than trying to pick winners in weeks 1 and 2 is trying to pick winners in weeks 16 and 17.  Last week was a week of upsets and weird finishes. This week should be even stranger.  Usually week 17 presents us with a bundle of games that are meaningless. As […]


Once again, we have found ourselves with three games to enjoy on Thanksgiving.  And once again, they fit nicely (sort of) into the three categories. The Pilgrims would have been proud!   This week’s Lock of the Week (10-2). The good news is I don’t have to decide on Tennessee or Kansas City, the only […]


Wow!  Talk about a roller coaster last week.  In a matter of minutes, I went from a 1-2 week to a 3-0 week, thanks to collapses by the Cowboys and the Steelers. In all honesty, I shouldn’t be all that surprised.  The Steelers are a mere shell of the mighty teams they have put together […]


Life in the NFL for your friendly hometown host is finally where it belongs.  I actually got all three correct last week.  And it only took four weeks to do it! So it’s all smooth sailing from here, right?  RIIIIIIIGHT!  (A little Dr. Evil humor, there!) Okay, let’s go for two perfect weeks in a […]


I know, that’s a pretty bold statement, considering some of the divisional round matchups over the past few years.  But let me ask you a question.  When was the last time you saw all four games in this round that could very easily be won by either team? Usually there are one or two games […]


At first glance, you’d think I would be upset about going 0 for 3 last week. Well, my friends, my secret diabolical plan worked.  That’s right, I was willing to sacrifice my own personal stats to help end the miserable nine game losing streak that my hometown Cardinals were stuck in. I had proclaimed the […]


I knew it was going to be difficult to go three for three last weekend, so I can’t be too unhappy getting two out of three.  I guess I should have known da’ Bears would eventually figure out how to score on offense. With the season getting closer and closer to the playoffs, upsets will […]


Am I on fire or what?  Eleven for twelve, including another perfect day on Thanksgiving.  I could get used to this! Uh-oh.  The schedule may not let me enjoy this much longer.  Have you seen this week’s matchups? Okay, I’m feeling pretty good about the Lock of the Week.  But the Upset and the Game…not […]


Another week, another 3-0 record.  Okay, I know it’s only three games, but I’m taking it! This week will not be so easy.  I’ll explain when I get to the “Upset” category. This week’s Lock of the Week (8-2). This one is about as easy as it gets.  While most of the other games on […]


Well I got a little bit of redemption last week, getting two out of three correct, after going 0-3 in week 2.  Unfortunately, my Lock of the Week pick is starting to look like the Madden’s Curse. I’ve received thousands of emails from fans all over the world, begging me not to pick their teams […]
