If I’m going to do an odds on favorite as a stunt one week I may as well do a gambler’s regret the following week to see how I fared….

I didn’t do overwhelmingly great but not horrible either as I went 8-8. My under/over picks went push/loss so that was bad, but on the other hand my 3 team tease (Jags, Pats and Seahwaks) came through, so there’s that. Also my lock of the week that got criticized by cabbage was way right as Jacksonville covered by 28 points.

Pick that was so easy I shouldn’t really get credit for it: Green Bay -11. I mean come on this was a mismatch of epic proportions.

Pick I screwed up so badly that in hindsight it almost looks like I was picking the other team: Miami -3. Miami took a quick 7-0 lead and then proceeded to lay an egg and get Sparano fired. Not good times.

Line I wrote that I wish I could delete from the Interwebs: “The Falcons are secretly a bad team. If anything these 2 teams are even and Carolina should be giving 3 points for home field.” Guess they aren’t exactly even.

Line I wrote that I should probably pat myself on the back for: There are actually 2 of them.

1. “Indy just got a big back door cover against the Pats with new franchise qb Dan Orlovsky. I think they’ll do it again.” Dan Orlovsky is a garbage time hero. I even called it on Sunday in the comments.

2. “These 2 teams usually play close games and Jason Garrett can’t get out of his own way. The Giants showed a lot of fight against the Packers and win this game outright.” Pretty much nailed it.

Snap Judgment of the week #1. Gronkowski should have to be changed to wide receiver in fantasy leagues. It’s stupid that every person that drafted him is in the playoffs because he has a 20 point edge on every other tight end every week. And if you think this is sour grapes because he’s a Patriot and the Colts are 0-13, well you’re right.

Snap Judgment of the week #2. Eli Manning has taken over the mantle as best Manning right now and is a top 5 quarterback. His stats are good and more importantly he’s clutch. Besides Rodgers and Brady and Brees and of course Tebow name me a qb who you want more than Manning in crunch time right now.
