True story: A guy called last week asking to receive my weekly NFL picks early. He said he used my 2005 picks to win $1,000 in a competition among friends. I'm still waiting for my cut. Alas, telling this story guarantees I'll have a down season picking games in 2006. Oh well. This year I've decided to run my picks on the blog (in the past they were in the paper and didn't translate very well to the site). The twist is that I'll be picking against my wife. That really cranks up the pressure. She's an NCAA hoops fan who doesn't follow the NFL close enough to know what's going on with each team. So, if she picks more games correctly, I'll hear about it. Picks below.
Green shading signifies games we picked differently (she made her picks without looking at mine). I don't know where she got the idea I said there was nothing to do in Detroit. Guess I have to listen to myself a little more closely.
