OK, OK, so I didn’t come through for you guys last week. NO, actually you know what, the Patriots didn’t come through for you guys last week. Yeah, Bill Belichik didn’t come for through for us. Tom Brady failed us again. Yeah, so did Giselle Bunchin…mmmm. Giselle… Me, well, I’m 6-4 on the season, still not too shabby, still on the plus. Been doing a lot of sould searching this past week. A lot of wondering what went wrong in my life, where I went wrong. But that’s a different article for a different blog. Ready for this week’s pick/lock, here goes nothing… Minnesota Vikings at the Jacksonville Jaguars -2. Take the Jags and the points. The Vikes are in the thick of a playoff spot with a WHOPPING 5-5 record. The Jags on the other hand, are already playing for next year. So why would you take the Jags you ask? Don’t be fooled. 5 of 6 of the Jags’ losses are by 7 points or less. These guys just have problems finishing games. The Jags are stacked with talent. Throw in the fact that this is a home game and you got yourself a “LOCK of the Week.”
The Pittsburgh Steelers welcomed the Jacksonville Jaguars into their house on Saturday. They showered the Jaguars with gifts all evening, to make them feel welcome of course. A fumble, three interceptions, and eventually the game, 31-29. Luckily, I picked the Steelers and the points (+2.5) so technically I am a genius. As for the Steelers, is Big Ben still the man? Did they lose because of the absence of William Parker? I don’t know. What I do know is that coach Mike Tomlin has some work to do in the off-season. The Jags’ season, on the other hand, will come to an end next week when they play the unbeaten New England Patriots. Until then, enjoy the victory fellas, because in about 7 days, you will not only be on your way to Tahiti (or wherever) but you will have a worse draft pick than the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now who’s the real loser, huh?!, huh?!
