I have a bone to pick with other prognosticators. I've seen it time and time again and it ticks me off. You know that sister-kisser that the Bengals and Panthers had last week? Well, most proggies will either show a tie on their record or completely drop the game from their record altogether.
No. That's wrong. Did you predict a tie between Cincinnati and Carolina? No, you didn't. So how can you say that prediction didn't count? You were wrong about the outcome of the game - it should be in your loss column.
That's how I'm approaching it. So I ended up with a 10-5 record this week while going 1-1 in my upset specials (predicting a Bucs upset of Baltimore certainly wasn't my most Nostradamus of moments).
Let's see how it goes this week.
Last Week: 10-5 66% Upset Specials: 1-1 50%
Season: 57-34 62% Upset Specials: 5-7 41%
Colts 30, Bengals 20 - Wow, tough one. Indy has had 10 days to prepare for this one and they're at home.
Packers 30, Panthers 20 - Is anyone worth a damn in the NFC South? To think Tampa Bay is 0-3 in division play. How bad do you have to be to suck against these bums?
Cowboys 26, Giants 16 - Okay Dallas, I take it all back. You're for realz, yo.
