When was the last time we reached the conference championship round of the playoffs and you found yourself able to make legitimate arguments for all four of the remaining teams to win the Super Bowl? It doesn’t happen often, but it has most certainly happened this year. Clearly, we will be watching the four best […]

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 […]


Okay, so it took until week 5, but I’ve finally got my second wind. After struggling around .500 for the first few weeks, I finally picked an upset correctly and finished 3-0 for the week. So do I feel confident that all is well and I’m finally figuring out this great entertainment machine that we […]


Okay, I’m back after taking last week off. Given the choice of taking another crack at picking winners in a league full of upsets or spending the weekend with the oldest grandkids, it was a no-brainer. While I was gone, several teams in the league also took the week off. Among them were three of […]


Picking winners in the first week of an NFL season is usually about as easy as guessing how many marbles can fit into a five-gallon jug. The best you can do is offer up an educated guess and hope you’re not too far off. Well this season is no different. There were several upsets along […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


It looks like this season is going to be pretty much all or nothing for me.  Well, 3-0 or 1-2.  At least that’s how it’s been going so far.  After two straight weeks of 3-0, I’ve had two straight weeks of 1-2. After looking at this week’s schedule, I’m pretty certain that I’ll keep my […]
