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 […]


Okay, I’m back after a self-imposed exile last week. And no, it wasn’t because I was still exhausted after that Cardinals – Seahawks battle in week seven, although that did leave me out of breath for a couple of days. We took the grandkids to the pumpkin patch for the day, and that always comes […]


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 […]


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 […]


Okay, I give up. Just when you think you’ve got this league figured out, it all gets turned upside down again. For example, I figured that Rivers and the Chargers had enough offensive power to go to Miami and give the Dolphins a good battle, leaving town as the victor. The problem is, the Chargers […]


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 […]


My ego took a bruising last week, dropping two of my three picks, thanks to the NFC East remaining as unpredictable as ever. Maybe I’ll give that division a week off for bad behavior. I’m not sure things will improve this week, though. Have you looked at the schedule? I don’t see any of the […]


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 […]


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 […]
