Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I've been remiss in getting these picks up here the past couple of weeks. Ben, one of our other participants in Blogger Deathsport, has been quite willing to point out that my last couple of weeks have been a flop, having gone 5-9 in Week Seven and 4-9-1 last week.
This is bad and wrong and just short of completely awful, and it's also a trend that must change. So, with a quick comment on each game (as time is of the essence), let's get to this week's picks, with numbers supplied by the Blogger Deathsport home offices in Climax, Georgia.
--Still not impressed by Cleveland
--Sorry, Mr. Thigpen. . .Tampa's defense is a little better than the Jets' D.
--If Favre performs the same way this week as he did last week, the Jets will lose.
--Cards are traditionally bad on the road. Still not buying the Rams, though.
--Yes, a lot of points. But you have seen the Lions play, right?
--Hell, why not?
--Show no mercy, boys!
--Tough call. . .the Bengals are awful, but the Jags aren't great either. It stays close.
--The Mile High advantage kicks in again.
--LOL Brad Johnson. That is all.
--The Seahawks are, to quote Charles Barkley, turrible.
--Nothing gets a team back on track like a trip to Oakland.
--Why in the hell is Indy favored here? And by that much? At last check, the Colts are 3-4 and the Pats are 5-2.
--Should be a fun game. I'll take the Steelers in a close one. . .we'll say 23-20.
