Stats & Data

September 14, 2008


So, the time has come again. I've been waiting all spring and summer and it's here!

Are you ready for some football?! Woo!

And my favorite aspect of the game, are the picks. Since all I get around here are Detroit Lions games, I'm a bit out of the loop as a San Francisco 49ers fan, but I do like making picks.

Here's a breakdown of how I pick my picks:
First, I travel to a farm and pick out 15 pigs. And I write the names of the teams in fingerpaint.

 Then I drown myself in a mixture of brandy, virgin blood, Nyquil and grape Kool-Aid (for flavor).

I take out a large knife and ritually stab at the pigs until they are nothing more than a glob of skin, blood, and guts. The team that is the most legible is the winner!

Now, some may ask "Aren't there 16 games in a week?" Yes, that's true. But I always hold out hope that the 49ers go 16-0. Hope or delusion. I can't tell anymore. (They're winners in my book)

I like to think that I am pretty good at picks, when I remember to make them (I forgot to do them for this past weekend). The first week, I got the Giants, Ravens, Jets, Patriots, Falcons, Eagles, Bills, Steelers, and Cowboys as winners.

So here are my picks for next weekend.
-Bills over Raiders (sorry Jim)
-Giants over Bengals
-Bucs over Bears
-Texans over Titans
-Redskins over Cardinals
-Vikings over Panthers
-Chiefs over Falcons
-Patriots over Dolphins
-Broncos over Saints
-49ers over Lions (of course)
-Seahawks over Rams
-Eagles over Steelers
-Colts over Jaguars
-Browns over Ravens
-Cowboys over Packers
-Jets over Charger
