So Ol' Strange did a little better in his picks last weekend, but I'd hardly call an overall record of 3 for 8 stellar.
This weekend I plan on moving back to 500 with the following no-brainers- which will also apply if I'm wrong.
San Fran vs Atlanta -At this point as much as I respect the Falcon's home record and as much as my heart wants Tony G. to get a ring before he hangs 'em up, I can't ignore what the 49er's did to Green Bay last week. It really comes down to a mobile QB and Kapernick can run and surprise a lot of defenses. So I'm picking San Fran in a squeeker here. 49ers 31- Falcons 30.
Baltimore vs New England - At this point as much as I don't respect anything the Patriots (Tom Brady) do and as much as my heart would like to see Ray Lewis, (at this point) see the big show one last time before he hangs 'em up, I can't ignore all the N.E. weapons. It will really come down to the health of the Gronk and the perfection of Brady/Welker, but I don't see a problem here with another Patriots return *yawn* to the Super Bowl. Ravens 21- Partiots 38.
So I had some trouble yesterday with the internet and couldn't post my football picks.
You'll just have to take my word for it that yesterday's picks were on the up and up.
Vikings vs Packers and Bengals at Texans. I predict Packers will win 24-10 and the Texans will win 19-13. Wow! I can't believe I got those bang on...and neither should you. Actually I did predict the Green Bay victory but I thought it might be a little closer. I thought the Packers would win by 9 points, (30-21) the same amount of yards that A.P. fell short on the record. So that's one for moi.
However, I did predict Cincinatti walking away with a win from Texas to the score of 17- 14 and although it was close, I was on the losing end of that one.
Now, on to today.
Colts 14 at Ravens 10. I believe this will be the most defensive battle of the playoffs, but I think Indy will rely on their Luck and pull this one out...plus I just really hate Baltimore and the big bore.
Seahawks 21 at Redskins 24. My faith for the battle of the rookie QBs falls on the shoulders of RGIII. This is not Seattle where the 12th man resides, this is Washington and that is good for a last minute field goal to ice this one.
I wish I had a dime for every quarter I spent, for the times I wondered aloud, or in the quiet desperate whispers near the cat bowl in the ungodly wee hours of the morning...man! I'd probably have close to $20 bucks by now. Just think of all the pork I could buy?
I guess...what I'm trying to say really is...I've been blogging for several years now...how many?---I've lost count. Let's just say alot.
Anyhoo, somewhere along the line life got in the way and let's say, I've been lacking on seriously thoughtful posts for sometime now. Every year I threaten to return to form of my earlier years, but sadly, the truth is 2013 will probably see a continuation of the familiar---boob shots, quick links and a foray into someone elses madness while mine is left virtually unexplored.
Personally I wish I had more time to get directly involved, but I don't...so is what I'm currently posting that bad? Visitation is still increasing, so thanks for that.
Yet the days where I am back to being more than a sideline blogger may be gone for good.
