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 […]

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 […]


I thought I was going to have a perfect 3-0 record last week. Dallas rolled over Cleveland in the “Lock”, just as everyone on the planet expected. Oakland disposed of Denver in the “Game”, just as I called. In fact, I was only off on the final score by three points! All I needed was […]


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 […]


Just when I think I’m figuring out this wonderful thing we call the National Football League, I get thrown a major curve ball. (I know, I know, great metaphor – wrong sport. Deal with it!) Through the first four weeks of the season, I couldn’t pick an upset to save my life, even though they […]

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 […]


What a whirlwind of controversy the past few weeks have brought to the NFL. That’s nothing new this time of year, with final cuts being made throughout the league. Yet this time around, the controversy is centered around one player. By now, we’ve all heard about Colin Kaepernick’s “boycott” of the national anthem, citing this […]


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 […]
