A Word About This Past Week’s NFL Picks

Posted by in NFL Picks on October 19th, 2009 | Comment »

I feel I let a lot of you down with my NFL picks this week, so I just wanted to say a word about them. I was on fire week 5 in the NFL, everything I took was gold. I figured that if I nailed 3/3 high spreads in week 5, I could repeat it again this week.

Overall my NFL picks were 7-9 and 3 losses were by 1 point (Steelers, Vikings, and Bengals/Texans Over). 1 game away from .500 isn’t that bad. It was just the top 5 that consisted of the wrong games. Hindsight is always 20/20, but looking back, I wouldn’t have made many changes to my picks. Betting against the Raiders, Browns, and Rams has worked all season long, so why reinvent the wheel, right?  Well, every dog has its day — welcome to gambling.

The Eagles offensive line forgot to show up and the injury to Pro Bowl LT Jason Peters in the 1st quarter is what did the Eagles in that game.  Their backup LT is miserable!  The left tackle is the most important position in football besides the QB, in my opinion.  McNabb never got more than 3 seconds to release the football.  That was the difference in that game.  Then in the Jets game, Mark Sanchez threw 5 INTs.  Enought said there.

I would have moved the Packers up a bit due to the Calvin Johnson being inactive. That info on Johnson didn’t come out until right before the game though.  I bet this game right before kickoff, but didn’t get the update up on the site in time. The Patriots and Panthers also warranted higher picks, but at least I added them as picks to consider in the top 5.

And if you took my Sunday and Monday night picks of the Falcons and Broncos, you made up some ground.

Brandon did you right with his 7-4 record this week.  We’ll both be working hard on giving you some great games to eye up.  I’m going to be focusing on the NFL, he’ll be focusing on College Football.

Go get ’em next time.
