Last week, I decided to take the week off, since all four games were pretty much no-brainers. I didn’t expect four slaughters, but I did anticipate the four winners correctly. This week, things won’t be so cut and dry. There is only one game that I feel warm and fuzzy making a projection about, and […]


With one week remaining in the regular season, the playoff teams are locked up in the AFC, with the final order of things yet to be determined. In the NFC, things are a bit crazier, with eight teams still in the race. As much as we all hate predictions, we all still make them, so […]


Well, it only took until week 15, but I finally racked up the old 3-0 record last week. (For those of you who are math whizzes like me, I took a few scattered weeks off during the season!) That’s the good news. The bad news is, we are now in week 16, which, along with […]


If you’re anything like me, congratulations. But you’re also sick to death of all of the preseason predictions for divisional winners, conference winners and even Super Bowl winners. They began pouring in just after last February’s Super Bowl, and they haven’t stopped since. The idea that anyone, with any degree of credibility and accuracy, can […]


Okay, first the good news.  I finally picked an upset correctly (thank you Baltimore!) Now for the bad news.  I picked the Giants to win the game of the week.  To make matters worse, I’ve got Eli on one of my fantasy teams.  Yeah, that’s right, I got my clock cleaned in that league last […]


Here we go again.  The first week of projections, I wasn’t very good.  Last week, I was sweating it early, but finished up okay (not great), with two out of three correct. If I had only trusted my gut, and not been afraid of being called a homer for picking the Cardinals, I would have […]


Was I right when I said last week that the only week of the season that is more difficult than week seventeen to pick winners is week one?  Unfortunately, that was about the only thing I was right about. I was a measly one for three last week.  Now if this were baseball, I’d be […]


Now that the summer camps and pre-season games are behind us, we can finally look forward to the upcoming season.  I’m sure you’d agree with me that predictions of playoff contenders and Super Bowl champions at this point in time are, at the very least, educated guess work.  At the very most, they are ridiculous […]


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 […]


Here we are, in the final week of the regular season.  Although we already know most of the teams that made the playoffs, there is relatively little known regarding the seedings. Atlanta has locked up the #1 spot in the NFC and Indianapolis and Cincinnati have locked up the #5 and #6 spots, respectively, in […]
