2017 Weekly NFL Picks (week 6)

What a week for the National Football League, as stories are happening everywhere. Before I get to my picks, there are a few notes from the league that are worth discussing. The NFL has won its case (on appeal) against Ezekiel Elliot and its 6-game suspension. Ben Rothlisberger and his on going frustrations with the Steelers. Dominique Rogers-Carmatie getting suspended by the New York Giants, after an argument with Head Coach Ben McAdoo (by the way is on the hot seat now). Now Sean Combs wants to buy the NFL, and I don’t see it happening anytime soon. There are other headlines going on, but cannot get to them all. Now for the picks, as I took it on the chin again. In week 5, I was 7-7 and for the season I’m 43-34. So here comes my week 6 picks:

Lions over Saints

2017 Weekly NFL Picks (Week 5)

2017 Weekly NFL Picks (Week 5)

How about this NFL season so far, are you hooked yet? I know I have after several weeks, due to a lot of intrigued storylines. The Titans may have to go without Marcus Mariotta (hamstring), but they signed Brandon Weeden instead of Colin Kaepernick. Really Tennessee Titans who is making the decisions there. Then there is the donut bowl (0 wins on the season) Chargers vs Giants. Now there is a matchup that i am looking forward to, nah not really. Its such a tragedy that we have 3 teams that have not won a game yet, yes Cleveland Browns i am talking about you too. As for my picks, took another one on the chin with my picks, even though i did a little better. In week 4 i was 9-7, and for the season i am now 36-27. So now time for the week 5 picks.

Thursday Night:

Patriots over Buccaneers

Early Sunday:

Jets over Browns
Bills over Bengals
Lions over Panthers

2017 NFL Weekly Picks (Week 4)

2017 NFL Weekly Picks (Week 4)

What a week for the NFL, being in the news for the all the wrong reasons. Enough talk about are they, or wont they kneel or stay out for the national anthem. See this was the result of the saga Colin Kaepernick has caused. Can we get on with more football, please!! I feel bad for the Detroit Lions, they had victory until a reversal destroy there hopes. Sorry Lions fans but i have to say this, i am glad that i am not a fan of your team. By the way, the Cincinnati Bengals should go 0-16 for the way there season is going. I am too embarrassed for them, how do you allowed the Packers to comeback and win. Now for my picks, it was so bad that i went under .500 (winning percentage). In week 3 i was 7-9, and for the season im 27-20. Now time for the week 4 picks and a bounce back week.

2017 Week 2 NFL Picks

2017 Week 2 NFL Picks

What a great start to this NFL season, let’s start with a few notes from around the league. The homecoming for Adrian Peterson did not go so well, as he was limited to less than 20 yards. Saints go on to lose to the Vikings, in Minneapolis. Could the Colts be in a lot of trouble? No Andrew Luck for a while, and the Colts look terrible. Now there is a possibility of the Colts moving on from Luck? There could go after Alex Smith who could be on his way out in Kansas City. The second week of the regular season is upon us, and now some teams are in must win mode already. Last week I went 8-7 but it’s the opening week. Now for the Week 2 picks:

2017 Weekly NFL Picks (Week 1)

It will be played in November, and now on to my Week 1 picks:

My Weekly Extra Point #6

The Houston Texans Quarterback Soap opera

So when they got rid of Brock Osweiler, the idea was the Texans wanted a proven QB that has won. However as of now, it has proven to be a nightmare for the Texans. All they have left is Brandon Weeden and Tom Savage, and they are clearly not the answer for the Texans at this time. Colin Kaepernick and Jay Cutler is still out there (and there proven QB’s) but i do not see anybody else. I guess the upcoming NFL draft (which is within weeks by the way) will be interesting considering they dont pick until the 20’s. The Texans will have to hope for the luck of the draw, in order to find a Quarterback that they can develop into there own. I know you are probably are wondering why i call it a soap opera, its a show that i cannot turn away. Also the headlines continue to mount day after day. This would make newspapers desperate to attract readers for once. Its time for the Texans to find that Quarterback (once and for all) and develop him into a winner as the AFC South division will be wide open for the 1st time in 4 years. Can’t wait for the NFL season to get started.

My Weekly Extra Point #5

The Tony Romo Retirement

I really thought the Dallas Cowboys handled it poorly, first they were gonna release him 2 months ago. Then the trade that never took place at all, leaving him out there to fend for himself. I for one would have loved it if he went to the Houston Texans. I will try not to show my NY Giants fan bias on here. Romo is retiring on his terms and going to the broadcast booth at CBS. I however disagree with him replacing Phil Simms as the #1 NFL Game analyst (For CBS). I think he should work his way up from the bottom. But hey the TV executives know more than me, so it would only fall at there feet if it doesn’t work. Romo could have gone to Fox Sports, but CBS offered a better deal. As for his playing career, i think he is done. However it would have been better if he played better in the postseason (2-4 in the playoffs, all with Dallas). I cannot blame him entirely, i mean his teams didn’t last long enough. Also he did not get past the 2nd round of playoff competition which is a big factor as Dallas was the perennial favorites to end up in the super bowl. So the ride ends for Romo as Jerry jones (Owner of Dallas Cowboys) would not let this end without haste. Clearly Jones did not want him to end up with the team of his choice. Let’s hope the Dallas cowboys have some good seasons coming up as the Dak Prescott era is well underway.

Latest Weekly Extra Point (1st of 2017)

Will Vegas end up with the Raiders, at all?

Raiders still plan to move to Vegas, in spite of recent financial back outs. They filed the paperwork for relocation, sometime ago in January. What about the city of Oakland, CA and do they even have a chance at all here? I really don’t see the city of Oakland doing anything now, or even later. They are on the verge of losing the Golden State Warriors (to San Francisco), possibly the Oakland Athletics baseball team to San Jose or Montreal. So about 5 years Oakland will be a ghost town, with no sports teams. The Raiders needed a new building for years, and they did nothing with it. In Las Vegas, the Raiders have had 2 prominent companies that have backed out of money deals for a new stadium. The reasons have been compelled to say the least, but not legit in my eyes. I think the Raiders would work in Las Vegas with great fan support. There has not been a vote for the Raiders relocation as of now. The rule is that 24 of the 32 NFL owners would have to say yes to the Raiders moving. There are some hurdles the Raiders have to endure, but the process is there. As for when it will take place, they hope the 2020 season is when the Raiders plan to be in Vegas. We will see what happens next with the Raiders as far as on the field issues.

My Divisional Playoff Picks

My Divisional Playoff Picks

How about it football fans we made it to 2017. Now we got some notes to go through before we get to the picks. The Chargers are now in Los Angeles, and looks like the Raiders will make a move to Las Vegas. Still developing at this time, we will keep a close watch on it during the off season. 5 teams have new head coaches heading into the 2017 season. Only the San Francisco 49ers are left without a coach. Johnny Manziel will be at Super Bowl Week in Houston charging for both selfies and autographs, huh!! He cannot be serious about this, how is this even a story?? Now for my picks, sorry I was not here during the wild card round, didn’t miss much at all a season there was no close games.

Patriots over Texans

Sunday’s Games

2016 NFL week 17 (regular season finale) NFL picks

2016 NFL week 17 (regular season finale) NFL picks

How about that we have finally reached the end of the regular season with the final week. A few quick notes from the league as the coaches are making the news off the field. Rex Ryan is gone from buffalo as they did not want to wait. There will be more coaches on the hot seat between now and Monday. The San Diego Chargers lost a game, but this one was the worst of the year. The Cleveland browns ended a 17 game losing streak going back to last season. What a shame and it may be the end for the Chargers tenure in San Diego if it comes to it. Last week I went 11-5 in week 16, and for the season I’m 154-83-2 as I go for the 160 win mark to end the regular season.
