It sucks. I procrastinated with my picks this week, didn't do any kind of research (yes, I do research, jerks) and I come into this pick segment woefully ill prepared. It's the Mayans fault. I blew off my articles for the week fully expecting the world to end this morning. I can't tell you how disappointed I am that the apocalypse didn't come because now I have to embarrass myself further in my picks segment.
I skated through with a woeful 9-7 record this week (thank you Mark Sanchez) so like Josh Freeman and the Bucs - I had a slow start, a strong middle and a really crappy end to the season.
Hopefully it will get better this week.
So - what's our theme this week? Hell, I don't know. Like I said - world. end. no preparey catchy pick stuff. I think we'll just go straight hard hitting analysis and prognostication this week.
Naaah, who am I kidding? Without my substandard humor I'm just a terrible picker.
I'm sure I can come up with something on the fly.
Last Week: 9-7 56%
Season: 132-93 59% Upset Specials: 9-27 25%
Redskins 26, Eagles 13 - It's just not fair that the Redskins go from no quarterback to ridiculously rich in quarterbacks in one off-season. There's at least eight teams in the league Kirk Cousins could start for now, today. And they'll be one on the other sideline this week.
Rams 27, Buccaneers 13 - I don't think I'm picking the Bucs again after that woeful display last week. Suddenly, all that "led in every game and never lost a game by more than one score stuff" goes by the wayside when you give up a forty burger AND are shut out by one of the dregs of the NFL. Yes Saints fan, your team sucks. Just not as bad as Tampa Bay.
