This past weekend was a chaotic one in the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE, with the Packers ending it no longer undie-feeted, the Colts getting their first win and making sure Dan Orlovsky is not the only QB to ever start under center for two winless teams, and the Eagles showing what they could have been all along, all the while remaining eligible for the playoffs if they win out and get some help from their alternately awful and awesome mates in the NFC East.
It was also chaotic for my picks, which ended up giving me one of my worst weeks ever, 5-10-1. This holiday weekend will be chock full of chances for me to redeem myself, with games tonight (Thursday), the regular Sunday slate moved to Saturday for Christmas Eve, and the Sunday Night game capping off Christmas Day. Then there’s ESPN’s Monday Nighter. This week could be the one where I finally dip back below .500, turn the responsibilities over to Kellie from upstairs, and retire my picks in order to write about Champion’s League soccer, cause, you know, it’s “real” football or whatever.
That last part was a lie.
My record last week made me feel kinda Rollins.
