Last week is the primary reason I caution you to avoid my picks like the plague. I'll have bouts of heavy suck, will a slight chance of mediocrity. In Week 4, I crashed and burned in a Hurricane of suckitude to the tune of 5-8. That's not against the spread, my friends. That's straight up who wins and who loses. Oh NFL, you fickle bitch.
I even went oh-fer on my upset specials. Who knew Pittsburgh would, as Antonio Brown puts it, "lose at home to the one of the worst teams in the NFL?" BTW, Antonio, what's that make your team?
Who knew both Tom Brady and Drew Brees would suck as badly as my picks of their teams winning?
Nope, this is a classic Mora-ism. You think you know but you don't know and you never will.
So there it is. I'll take the same philosophy Jacksonville takes in to every game. Let's try to suck a little less this week, shall we?
Last Week: 5-8 38% Upset Specials: 0-2 0%
Season: 35-26 57% Upset Specials: 3-6 33%
Byes: Dolphins, Raiders
Bears 34, Panthers 20 - The Panthers offense is so inept right now, even the Bears defense may contain them. Plus, I thought Luke Kuechly was the heart of the defense? Who knew it was the girl friend-terrorizing Greg Hardy?
Saints 34, Buccaneers 24 - Tampa Bay has lost their last two trips to NOLA by a combined score of 83-17. Plus, a Sean Payton coached team hasn't lost at home since 2010. If New Orleans doesn't win this game, we'll be saying ALL DAT TEAMS GONNA BEAT DEM 'AINTS.
Patriots 30, Bengals 20 - The Pats were embarrassed on MNF. I can't believe this is Tom Brady. Nope. They have to keep getting beat like a drum and Brady has to continue channeling his inner-McCown before I accept it.
