2014 Week 8 Picks



Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Chargers vs Broncos Broncos Mile high oxygen sparse air and all that…
Lions vs Falcons Lions Falcons don’t seem much of a threat these days.
Seahawks vs Panthers Seahawks Seahawks need to turn things around.
Ravens vs Bengals Ravens Bengals haven’t won for a month. I think the trend will continue.
Dolphins vs Jaguars Dolphins Don’t make me cry, Dolphins.
Rams vs Chiefs Chiefs Chiefs at home. Unless the Rams fake a punt and pretend to field one.
Bears vs Patriots Patriots Bears have locker room drama, if reports are to be believed.
Bills vs Jets Bills Orton isn’t spectacular but he’s better than Geno Smith. Will Percy prove me wrong?
Vikings vs Buccaneers Vikings They probably won’t win, but what the hell.
Texans vs Titans Texans JJ Watt will be the difference maker.
Eagles vs Cardinals Cardinals Going with the home team in this aerial match-up.
Raiders vs Browns Browns Going with the home team and the uglier uniform.
Colts vs Steelers Colts Colts are running hot.
Packers vs Saints Saints Maybe more aspirational than fact based given my hatred for both teams.
Washington vs Cowboys Cowboys In the house that Jerry built.

2014 Week 7 Picks Results



Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Jets vs Patriots Patriots Patriots With just seconds on the clock, the Patriots block the game winning field goal. Nice try.
Falcons vs Ravens Ravens Ravens Total blow out.
Vikings vs Bills Bills Bills Oh Vikings… so close, yet so far.
Dolphins vs Bears Bears Dolphins By Odin I hate both of these teams so much. Neither ever does what I pick them to do.
Saints vs Lions Lions Lions Saints attempted a comeback. Brees got picked.
Panthers vs Packers Packers Packers Someone please start stomping the Packers.
Bengals vs Colts Bengals Colts Ignoring instinct going forward. Note to self: Bengals haven’t won for a month.
Browns vs Jaguars Browns Jaguars Oh Browns… you fell to the 0-6 Jaguars? I guess they had to win at some point.
Seahawks vs Rams Seahawks Rams Seahawks got spanked.
Titans vs Washington Titans Washington Like I said…. Ignoring instinct going forward.
Chiefs vs Chargers Chargers Chiefs Andy Reid’s magic of 2013 has waned.
Giants vs Cowboys Cowboys Cowboys Cowboys lit up the Seahawks… look for a Bad Eli appearance.
Cardinals vs Raiders Cardinals Cardinals Going with the Cardinals in this match up.
49ers vs Broncos Broncos Broncos You don’t argue with Peyton Manning (or his forehead) at home.
Texans vs Steelers Steelers Steelers I wavered between the Texans and the Steelers. Went with the home team.

2014 Week 7 Picks



Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Jets vs Patriots Patriots I don’t see the Jets, at 1-5, winning this divisional match up.
Falcons vs Ravens Ravens Flacco and Ryan were drafted in the same year. Matty Ice needs help on the road.
Vikings vs Bills Bills Until the o-line is better, I’m not picking the Vikings to win anything at this point.
Dolphins vs Bears Bears Bears are 0-2 at home. Maybe this game will break the curse.
Saints vs Lions Lions Lions at the top of the NFC North. That’s better than those Packer losers.
Panthers vs Packers Packers I’d love to be wrong about this.
Bengals vs Colts Bengals Going on instinct here.
Browns vs Jaguars Browns Jaguars are 0-6. I don’t think this game is going to help them.
Seahawks vs Rams Seahawks This could be a trap game for the Seahawks after the Cowboys stomped them.
Titans vs Washington Titans Another instinct pick.
Chiefs vs Chargers Chargers Andy Reid’s magic of 2013 has waned.
Giants vs Cowboys Cowboys Cowboys lit up the Seahawks… look for a Bad Eli appearance.
Cardinals vs Raiders Cardinals Going with the Cardinals in this match up.
49ers vs Broncos Broncos You don’t argue with Peyton Manning (or his forehead) at home.
Texans vs Steelers Steelers I wavered between the Texans and the Steelers. Went with the home team.

2014 Week 6 Picks Results


I did pretty well this week, if I do say so myself.

 

Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Colts vs Texans Colts Colts Fairly close game; Colts squandered a sizable early lead.
Patriots vs Bills Patriots Patriots Decisive 15 point victory for those “has-been” Patriots.
Panthers vs Bengals Bengals TIE Game went to OT. And then they tied. The end.
Steelers vs Browns Browns Browns Steelers got whooped.
Packers vs Dolphins Packers Packers Breaking news: Packers resort to cheating with a fake spike to win.
Lions vs Vikings Vikings Lions Clearly I was drunk when I picked the Vikings to win anything.
Broncos vs Jets Broncos Broncos Broncos handled the Jets pretty handily on their own turf.
Ravens vs Buccaneers Ravens Ravens Ravens destroyed the Bucs. Lovie/Leslie: bad combo platter.
Jaguars vs Titans Titans Titans Just a 2 point victory for the Titans over the now 0-6 Jaguars.
Chargers vs Raiders Chargers Chargers Raiders came close, though.
Washington vs Cardinals Cardinals Cardinals A late interception killed any chance for Washington to tie.
Bears vs Falcons Falcons Bears Bears stomped the Falcons in their own house.
Cowboys vs Seahawks Seahawks Cowboys Seahawks were stunned by a fired up 5-1 Cowboys team.
Giants vs Eagles Eagles Eagles Giants were shut out. Let’s hope Victor Cruz & Sproles are ultimately ok.
49ers vs Rams 49ers 49ers Rams fought hard.

2014 Week 6 Picks


Let’s see if the Vikings can get a win this week.

 

Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Colts vs Texans Colts I’d watch JJ Watt dance all day… but those Texans aren’t in a groove.
Patriots vs Bills Patriots Tom’s back.
Panthers vs Bengals Bengals Bengals didn’t win last week but they’re home this week.
Steelers vs Browns Browns Call me crazy…
Packers vs Dolphins Packers This’ll be the week the Dolphins win. I’d be happy to be wrong here…
Lions vs Vikings Vikings Teddy! Teddy! Teddy!
Broncos vs Jets Broncos Geno Smith made sure Ponder didn’t have the lowest QB rating last week.
Ravens vs Buccaneers Ravens Ravens should have this one in the bag.
Jaguars vs Titans Titans This will be a close game.
Chargers vs Raiders Chargers This CA match up probably won’t be all that close.
Washington vs Cardinals Cardinals Cardinals will win at home.
Bears vs Falcons Falcons LOLBears. I hate that team. Matty Ice is on his home turf for a likely win.
Cowboys vs Seahawks Seahawks Tony Romo isn’t choking much but the 12th man will be active.
Giants vs Eagles Eagles This is a toss up… but I’m going to predict that Bad Eli makes an appearance.
49ers vs Rams 49ers Hmmm… Rams. No.

Ravens vs Colts Ravens Colts Why not the Ravens? Because the Colts won by a TD.
Steelers vs Jaguars Steelers Steelers Steelers grabbed another win.

Well, here we go. Let’s see what this week brings.

 

Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Vikings vs Packers Packers We’re down 5 starters. Possibly 6. No way we’re winning.
Bears vs Panthers Bears They’ll probably let me down. Again.
Browns vs Titans Browns Browns are probably up to the task.
Eagles vs Rams Eagles The Eagles have been looking pretty good. Rams lost to the Vikings.
Falcons vs Giants Giants Falcons could win this if Bad Eli shows up. Eli is unpredictable though.
Buccaneers vs Saints Saints I hate the Saints.
Texans vs Cowboys Cowboys Romo has not been choking. He still could, but maybe not this week.
Bills vs Lions Lions Lions are pretty decent this season. Which is troubling.
Ravens vs Colts Ravens Why not the Ravens?
Steelers vs Jaguars Steelers Jaguars could surprise us.
Cardinals vs Broncos Broncos Cardinals are good but the Broncos are at home.
Chiefs vs 49ers Chiefs This was my gut instinct. My head doesn’t agree but I’m trying things the other way.
Jets vs Chargers Chargers The Jets have QB issues. As we know.
Bengals vs Patriots Bengals The Patriots are not what they were.
Seahawks vs Washington Seahawks I think we can all agree on this one.

Match Up Pick Winner Commentary
Giants vs Washington Giants Giants Good Eli showed up and had himself a blast.
Panthers vs Ravens Ravens Ravens Ravens dismantled the Panthers.

Lions vs Jets Lions Lions Lions got the job done.
Dolphins vs Raiders Raiders Dolphins Dolphins: I hate you on principle because you always do the opposite.
