NEW YORK, NY – Nothing but picks this week folks. I’m picking them all. My best three will appear in the last paragraph and count against my season total. The rest are just for fun. As George Carlin used to say, “My rules. I make ‘em up”.

Now, take a knee and listen up.

  • Despite their good showing against Dallas my head says take The Eagles (+1) over The GIANTS.
  • I love The Jets (-3) over The BUCCANEERS as Kellen Clemens takes care of the football.
  • I’ll take The CHIEFS (pk) over The Bills with the theory that if two awful teams are playing, take the home team.
  • As much as I don’t want to see it (for the Giant’s sake) I think The Packers (-3) will get it done on the road against The BEARS.
  • I will reluctantly lay the big number with The Saints (-10.5) over The FALCONS only because the game is in a dome and they want to prove last week’s near debacle was a fluke. I wouldn’t touch this game with a ten foot pole.
  • In another one I don’t care for, I’d take The Dolphins (+2.5) over The JAGUARS in the battle of the Sunshine State.
  • I have a hard time believing The PATRIOTS (-13.5) are laying that much against The Panthers. New England is just not that good anymore. It’s a spread based on reputation alone. Take the points.
  • This next one is a classic Heart versus Head pick. I want them to lose but I must select The COWBOYS (-3) over The Chargers.

      Cowboy Cheerleaders are great but so are The Charger Girls
  • I thought this would be Houston’s breakout year. Now I’m not so sure. The TEXANS (-6) and The Seahawks is another one to stay away from. Take the points, as well, if you must.
  • Indy cooled them off last week and the number looks a little large for my taste, so stay away from The TITANS (-13) and The Rams. If you must wager (Grote?) take the points.
  • This next one almost made my top three. I like The Redskins (-1) over The RAIDERS. They are the best of the bad teams.
  • The Cardinals (-3) over The 49ERS is another one I like that just didn’t make the cut. Although San Francisco is a good home dog, I think Arizona is rolling. Lay the points.

    As for the real picks: Have we witnessed the beginning of the late season Brett Favre fade out? I think so. The VIKINGS (-6.5) and The Bengals looks like a good game. Take the Bengals. They’ll lose in a squeaker. I like The Broncos (+7) over The COLTS in another close one. Now call me crazy, but in my “Lock of the Century of the Week”, I’ll take The Lions (+13.5) over The RAVENS. I stand at 26-11-2.

    Happy Holidays,

      Goodbye, Charger Girls…
