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 […]

This is a strange season indeed. With three weeks remaining in the regular season, only New England and Dallas were guaranteed playoff berths, and only the Patriots had locked up their division. Seattle joined that party after beating the hapless Lambs this past Thursday, but the playoff picture as a whole is still wide open. […]


Second week in a row, I’m sitting at 2-0, confident in the third game, only to have Seattle screw things up again. I’ve got to stop picking the games they play in. Whether I pick them to win or lose, I always get it wrong. Hey. Wait a minute. If I keep picking them to […]


Just when I think I’m figuring out this wonderful thing we call the National Football League, I get thrown a major curve ball. (I know, I know, great metaphor – wrong sport. Deal with it!) Through the first four weeks of the season, I couldn’t pick an upset to save my life, even though they […]


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 […]


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 […]


I’ve always said that week one and week seventeen are the two most difficult weeks to make accurate picks. This season appears to be keeping that trend alive and well. Okay, I actually picked 11 out of 16 correct, so I’m not too shaken up about that for week one. But some of the games […]


Wow, what an off-season. I can’t remember the last time I’d seen so many players taken out of service before the season even started. And I’m only talking about the arrests and suspensions! Add in all of the trades and injuries, and you’d be hard pressed to find any team with the same starting lineup […]


I know that, for true football nuts, the time between the Super Bowl and the first game of the regular season moves at an excruciatingly slow pace. By now you know that I am a lifetime card carrying member of this fraternity. One of the greatest thrills of the past eight weeks was the day […]
