Week 3 WILDLY INACCURATE Pick Results


I had to look at my picks several times.  I had really thought that I had been truly bad.  I mean really truly bad, as in I might have gotten 2 or 3 of my picks right.  Then I looked at the calendar and heaved a sigh of relief.  I usually wait to be REALLY shitty with my picks until October, it being late September, I was pretty safe.  Still.  I mangled it pretty badly this week.  7-9 isn’t great by any stretch of the imagination.  If you read my picks, I picked 3 dogs.  3.  Do you know how many dogs hit last week?

10. 

10, and 5 of those were straight up wins.  Bills, Niners, Giants, Raiders and Seahawks.  OK, there was no spread on the Giants game, but on my ledger the Eagles were favored straight up over the Giants.

The Bills are for real.  They pressured Brady, made him cough up the ball like he Eli Manning on a  bad day.  4 int’s by Brady.  He’s lucky he has Welker to pull his bacon out of the fire or the Bills would have toasted the Pats by 20.

And Eli!  Where ya been?  Nice to see the guy who signed the 87 bazilllion dollar contract show up once in a while.  No int’s, 4 td’s with a banged up receiver core.  Nice!  BTW, that kid Victor Cruz has the hands to get the job done at wide out.  He’s gonna see the ball a lot more, or he should, if Eli and Coughlin have any brains in their heads.

I was on twitter sunday, talking crap with some football fans, made some snide smart ass comment to a dude talking about the Bengals sucking, And I start saying you think they’ve got it bad, the Panthers are on their way to 0-16 and added something about the Browns, and hey buddy, aren’t the Bengals leading at this point?  Something like that.  Then the Panthers and the Browns won, and the Bengals, in the midst of a truly horrible game, lost a game no one wanted to win.

That shut me the hell up. Damn you to hell, Chuck Todd!!  Go cover occupy wall street and leave the football commentary to the amateurs like me, K?
