NFL Picks: Opening Week 1

NFL Picks: Opening Week 1
Last year, I had a roaring comeback towards the end of the year to nearly return to .500, only to be thwarted by a misguided Pete Carroll and a pull-a-rabbit-out-of-a**-lucky Malcolm Butler. Actually, after everything that came out about the Patriots cheating since 2001, it’s getting harder to think luck had anything to do with... Read more »

Wow, when philosophers examine the delicate passing of time, I’m starting to wonder if they’d find the most extreme results in a study of an NFL Season. One moment, you’re finishing your fantasy football draft over Labor Day weekend just drunk enough to take a bold swing at Travis Kelce (and hit it out of... Read more »

NFL Wild Card Picks: Sunday

NFL Wild Card Picks: Sunday
Bengals at Colts – 12:00CT The Colts were this year’s team with a really good record that never made you very confident they were actually a good team. A third straight 11-5 season and second straight AFC South division title behind Andrew “the Giant” Luck should make the Colts one of the talked-about AFC Contenders.... Read more »

Cardinals at Panthers – 3:20CT Buckle up folks. Ryan Lindley versus the 7-8-1 NFC South (Somebody-Had-To-Win) Division. I can’t wait to tell my grandkids about this game. I really want the Cardinals to win this game. Larry Fitzgerald is my favorite receiver of all time. Phoenix Stadium would be a mad house hosting a Super... Read more »

NFL Picks: Week 17

NFL Picks: Week 17
So, let’s do a quick recap to decided if I knew what I was talking about this year. For the NFC, I picked preseason division champions of the Seahawks (nailed it), Falcons (stay tuned), Eagles (who knew Mark Sanchez would be prominently involved), and Bears (seriously, I hate you Bears). In the AFC, I picked... Read more »

NFL Hindsight Picks: Week 16

NFL Hindsight Picks: Week 16
I’ve begun reading a Christmas present book called “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield. The concept challenges aspiring artists (or in this case, blogger) to pick out the factors that keep them from accomplishing their work, and labels this intangible entity “Resistance.” Well, I missed it Sunday and gave into the Resistance. I’ll take... Read more »

NFL Picks: Week 15
I’m having a tough time over here. See I just switched from Comcast, known mostly for being Nazi Germany’s favorite cable provider, to local legend, RCN. And while the switch has been great, Comcast, those greedy sunzab****es, took the NFL Redzone with them. I never thought I’d get sucked into the RedZone the way I... Read more »

BILLS (-2.5) OVER Browns Here’s the thing about Bryan Hoyer, the quarterback who keeps Johnny Football drinking at the club instead of starting on the field and Josh Gordon at only half his power because he owns a 10-4 record as the Browns’ starter. One of those wins came last season when he got hurt... Read more »

Happy Thanksgiving folks! Some of you are out there showing your thanks by cleaning the turkey, creating the brine, making the stuffing and generally preparing a wonderful meal for all your friends and family. And the rest of you… well the rest of you are the freeloaders. Thankfully, the NFL gave us freeloaders something to... Read more »

RAIDERS (+7.5) OVER Chiefs Boom. Nailed it. Please excuse me while I brush my shoulders off. This one was obvious. The Chiefs just beat the Seahawks on Sunday. And for whatever drama surrounds Percy Harvin, Marshawn Lynch, Russell Wilson or Pete Carroll’s Playboy mansion dalliances (easier prediction than any game), Seattle remains the defending champs...
