NFL Week 6 Picks

Either this is an easy week to pick or we’re all walking into a trap. We all agree on 7 of the 14 game this weekend and have a consensus for most others. The only game we’re split on is the Falcons-Chargers, or what could be billed as Battle of the Potential Frauds. Both teams come in with good records but unimpressive games. We’ll see how it shakes out.

Week 5 NFL Power Rankings

There was a lot of gagging in Week 5 as Minnesota, Seattle, and Arizona let big leads slip away late in the game. Only Minnesota managed to get it together and not choke. The beginning of the second quarter of the season really helped to separate the good teams from the frauds. A lot of questions still need to be answered about the pre-season contenders (Kansas City, Carolina, Tennessee) and whether they need to be written off and week 6 promises to provide those answers. But without further delay, here are your Power Rankings.

NFL Week 5 Picks

When I looked at the games on the schedule this week for my survivor pool, there weren’t that many that stood out as clear winners, which means that this weekend should be a great one in the NFL. While there aren’t any marquee matchups, except Giants-Cowboys, there are a bunch of games that look to be really tight. Should be a great day on the couch with Sunday Ticket but a terrible week for Picks. Still, your friendly staff here at Sportscolumn is taking our best shot at calling the winners.

NFL Week 4 Power Rankings

What a boring week in the NFL. The only game that even came close to living up to expectations was the Colts-Jaguars. After almost falling asleep during the late games, I rallied hard and was faced with St. Louis vs San Francisco? Even in the interest of journalism, I was barely able to watch that game. The shootout between Omar and Barksdale’s crew on The Wire was much better than anything the Rams and Niners could put together. Poor ESPN. The good news is that Mike Patrick is back next week.

NFL Week 4 Picks

In week 3, we didn’t do as well as the ESPN idio..er..experts (70% vs 66%) but we’re still beating them overall for the season. If you want to see how the “experts” all stack up against each other, you should check out Tokar’s Excel file that tracks all the major sites and their expert picks. It’s good to know that we’re beating the HBO NFL guys too. Unfortunately, we’re losing to Lil Bow Wow – go figure. Still, we persevere, so here are your Week 4 picks.

Power Rankings

Here are the week 3 Power Rankings, as decided by..well, me. Records aren’t everything so I don’t want to hear any complaints about Jacksonville being 3-0. I’d take Indy to beat them every single day of the week and twice on Sundays. Wait a minute, look what’s coming up this weekend: Jaguars vs Colts. If the Jags can beat the Colts, I’ll danced naked through the next snowstorm we get here.

Jeremy Shockey Passes Asshole Torch To Kellen Winslow Jr.

Editor’s Note: This article courtesy of The Brushback.com

ALBANY, NY–In a ceremony held at the New York Giants training camp facility in Albany, New York, tight end Jeremy Shockey officially passed the asshole torch to rookie tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. The brief ceremony marked the changing of the guard for asshole tight ends out of the University of Miami.

“You are the chosen one now,” said Shockey as he handed the symbolic torch to his colleague. “I hope you’re a worthy candidate for this important position. Go forth and be a complete asshole. I believe in you.”

As Winslow Jr. accepted the title, he vowed to carry the torch with dignity, pride, and respect.
