Okay, technically, the final week’s games will be played in 2017, but this is the 2016 season, so the title remains as it is. As far as making the picks for the week, there are only a handful of games that mean much at all, beyond who makes the roster next season and who is […]


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 […]
