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 […]


I’ve decided to bring back a weekly post this season, after putting it on hold last season. Okay let’s be real, I put the entire blog on hold for the last year or so. But I’m back with new energy, and so is the “Games of the Week”. Each week I will pick one game […]


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 […]


I’ve been taking the back seat for nearly a year now, listening to everyone else spout their opinions about the Arizona Cardinals, describing with passion why they didn’t think the Cardinals have been for real, boldly predicting that the Seattle Seahawks would “flip the switch” any minute now and take back the NFC West, a […]


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. […]


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 […]


Alright, my undefeated streak ended last week when KC couldn’t make the magic happen in Santa Clara (for those of you that are scratching your head and trying to figure what NFL team is from Santa Clara, Google the 49ers new stadium!). However, having picked eight of the past nine games correctly, I’m still feeling […]


Okay, now we’re rolling. After playing .500 ball for the first two weeks of the season, yours truly has been a perfect six for six over the past two weeks. Maybe now I’ll get some respect! Sorry, couldn’t help throwing in some Rodney humor. But admit it folks, he was one of the best!   […]


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 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 […]
