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 […]


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 guess I learned a few things last week. First, Minnesota is NOTHING without AP. Which means they will be nothing this season. Second, you can never count The Eagles out, no matter how awful they play. And third, Roger Goodell is a joke and the owners are still going to keep him! But […]


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 […]


Like most sports nuts (not just fans, but nuts), this is my favorite time of the year.  College basketball is in full swing, the NHL is just past the halfway point and that other league (the NBA?) is right behind them.  But most importantly, we’re down to the final four in the NFL. Yet, more […]


Now that we’re finished with the wildcard round of football, it’s time to start paying more attention. Before you get too hot and heavy about that opening remark, let me clarify things for you.  I’m not implying that the wildcard round didn’t mean anything or that it wasn’t exciting football.  It just means that it […]


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, New England kept me from a perfect record last week.  You’d think by now I’d learn to keep them out of my picks.  But nooooooooo!  (A little Belushi humor, there!)  So I guess the safe thing to do would be to stay as far from the Patriots as I can this week.  That […]


Okay, so last week wasn’t exactly a prognosticator’s dream.  The NFL schedule yielded more than a handful of upsets. Unfortunately, the impact of the week’s results was felt here, too.  Not only was my Upset of the Week a disaster (I know, why in world did I think Atlanta would figure things out against Seattle?), […]


Alright, I’m finally getting in the groove.  Two weeks in a row with all three projections coming to fruition. Yeah, that’s right, even the Indy over Seattle pick!  And you guys thought I was nuts for making that choice.  (Now we know, the pick has nothing to do with it!) Well, let’s see if I can […]
