MY GOODNESS I AM GOOD. I mean, calling a 12 point road underdog to win against "the best (achk achk) team in the NFL"- who else does that in print and in public except yours truly? I tried to tell Mr. Markus to switch his pick. He should stick to trying cases before Judge Middlebrooks, and I should stick to picking football games.
Lost the Bungles bet. -165. Won the Under Sants +100 and WON the Redskins over the Cowpokes- +75. An anemic +10 for the week, but that's what we get for a Bungles bet. (Plus, in our defense, we did not know they were sitting Carson Palmer. ) We finish week 4 +580.
After a nice Caymus Cabernet 2005 Special Reserve (being up 570 after three weeks helps with the price) , we tender these NFL picks for week four.
Gotta love the battle of Ohio. McCain vs. Obama. Bungles vs. Brownies. Someone, anyone, is coming out of this game with a win. We were impressed with the Bungles last week. They are at home -4. Marvin Lewis is a much better coach than Romeo Crenel, and the Brownies are in the middle of a QB crisis, after blowing 50 million on a one year wonder.Hahahahaha. Take the Bengals at home -4 +150.
Redskins at Cowpokes. The pokes are favored -12. We said we don't like Dallas, and we mean it. Skins on the road +12. +75.
San Fran and their (latest) wonder QB travel to the Big Easy and take on the Saints. The over is 48.5. Are you kidding me? Under -100.
David O Markus picks the Cowpokes, Goodbye David. Skins win on the road.
(at the half, things not looking good for our federal blogger. Skins 17, Pokes 7)
FINAL: GOODBYE DAVID. Skins 26 Pokes 17.
Rumpole: Saints. -winner
Rick Freedman: Jags.-overtime winner
Surph- "after further review the ruling is Surph picked the Jags. He is in and safe."
Now we are down to three.
Working with a client tomorrow at their office, so I may not be able to get the suicide picks up. But your email has to arrive before the game you pick begins. Steelers/Ravens for anyone who misses Sunday for Monday night.
