Friendly’s Presents Week 17 of The Football Picks of The Week
Last week was one of those weeks when I have to look in the mirror and wonder what service we’re providing the reader and/or listener.
We went a combined 7-11 overall and 0-3 in our Locks of The Week. Producer Joe, Denny From Friendly’s, and I all have to wonder what the hell went wrong.
I start peacocking around about my 11-4 record in Locks of The Week, and then I confidently give you the Buffalo Bills (+4.5) against the Seahawks…and it didn’t quite work out.
@ProdJoe and Denny didn’t do much better. At least ProdJoe gave you a team that went to overtime before failing with the Steelers at the Cowboys. Denny fell into the trap that, according to Chad Millman of ESPN, 80% of the public money went on in Las Vegas: the Lions (-6) at the Cardinals.
If I would’ve known that in advance, I would’ve been putting the wiffle ball field on the Cardinals.
Instead, it was just a mess of an NFL weekend…only saved by that classic 49ers’-Patriots’ Sunday Night Football Game. But, in fine fashion, we all picked the Patriots.
Just terrible. I went 2-4. ProdJoe went 3-3. Denny went 2-4. We all lost our Locks. I would apologize, but our season records are so either bad or mediocre that I can’t imagine many of you are basing your wagering on our picks. The one that might’ve cost you money was my Lock, since I was proclaiming my greatness last Friday only to be humbled Sunday.
Here are the standings:
Tim: 54-53 (11-5 Locks of The Week)/ Last Week: 2-4 (0-1 Lock of The Week)
Producer Joe: 52-55 (8-8 Locks of The Week)/ Last Week: 3-3 (0-1 Lock of The Week)
Denny: 46-58 (10-6 Locks of The Week)/ Last Week: 2-4 (0-1 Lock of The Week)
