That was an entertaining and uneventful week in the National Football League.  The Green Bay Packers fight off the refs and win.  The Atlanta Falcons throw a hail marry and win.  The Arizona Cardinals, who I referred to as a suicidal pick, flew in at the last second to become victorious.  Only the person wearing an eye patch ended up deciding to trust Josh Freeman, only to have him literally turn them into a free man and bust out of suicide pools across all pirate waters.  97% of the picks in week 4 survived going forward. This past week was like a ceasefire in the war of 17 weeks; the war began with a blood bath in the battle of underdogs.  Do not expect this truce to continue. Let us recap some of the strategies and theories behind suicide pool selections.  I started off by saying home teams are the better bet when deciding between selections.  Why?  Home teams have an advantage in a lot of different football and non-football areas.  Heck, Vegas gives home teams a 3-point or more advantage
