Oh well. So much for my upset picks. Browns came close but Colts made me look bad. Hopefully back on track next week.

:roll:
and let me guess, youre still ahead of me huh? smfh the picks i make to "gain some ground" usually do ok.. the rest of em- like always picking against Dullass and very rarely picking any other divisional team doesnt help.
thats a possible 9 wins (or something) i could have had, wow. :shock:

One game to go :shock:


:shock: How can you pick a team when the QB is Jason Campbell

A possible PERFECTO and you do that

you basically show that it was a lucky week - Jason Campbell couldn't beat the little sisters of the poor - NOT even if they gave him 21 points

guy's one of the biggest losers at QB of all time


AMAZING :lol:


Hahaha I am kicking myself too. I originally picked the 49ers then when I saw Smith was out I switched. I figured Kapernick wouldnt be able to handle the Bears defense.

Kapernick looked decent the previous week, plus it was at SF. A. Smith with 5.5 sacks! :shock: :shock:

still ... a great week

there were a number of guys that only missed 1 game but you were the only one to have a chance on the last game ...

anyone that picked the Texans to win that game was wrong - you got the point but you picked the wrong team - better to be lucky than good :lol:
The Lions 'won' that game ... :roll:

The Lions players may have won but the headcoach is still part oftheteam and HE lost them that game.

Hey, brother, we all have been on the wrong end of a number of 1-point difference games in the past. It is my turn to be on the right one every once in a while.

Another thing ... Stafford? Naaaaahhhhhhh. [-X

Can you imagine RGIII throwing to Calvin Johnson? THAT would make ma HAPPY \:D/

You folks can't accuse me of being a front runner that picks all favorites and hopes for the best. My two underdog picks didn't work our so well. This weekend, I'm going with 4 underdog picks. Here's your chance, I guess, to grab the lead from me!!

I thought you were saying you took 2 underdog picks in the first 3 games this week that "did not work out"

I've done much better when I've left my initial selections alone ...

changing picks has cost me about 5 games this season

Dude, NEVER change your picks except for injury (i.e. Cutler being out vs. SF).
