UPDATE: The Herald's David Ovalle weighs in here with the good, the bad, and the George of the Office of Regional Counsel.
There's a small announcement about the future of the blog below.
Here are the picks for week two: Note a few additions: Brian Alexander picked the Raiders last Sunday, sending us an email at 11:22 am. He is in and alive. Rick Freedman made it in with the Cardinals, as did Robert Kuntz.
Week Two Picks: This week, and this week only, we will provide last week's pick in parenthesis: UPDATE- JETS, STEELERS, SAINTS ALL WINNERS. LIONS ALSO SQUEAKED BY 48-3. ORLANDO RODRIGUEZ TAKES A LOSS AS RAVENS SHOW THEY ARE SAME OLD RAVENS AND LOSE TO TITANS.
BDTD (Eagles) : Jets; Colby (Jets) : Patriots; ADAMT2 (Cardinals) : Steelers;
MICHAEL GRIECO (Texans): Steelers; Rick Freedman (Cardinals):Lions-after considering the Steelers, lets see how that plays out. Don't love the Steelers today. Game will be closer than expected at best for the guys in black n gold. ;
MICHAEL FEILER(Chargers): Packers; KEN WEISMAN (Chargers): Saints;
ROBERT KUNTZ (Cardinals):Lions; PETER SAUTTER(Chargers): Steelers;
CARY CLENNON (Cardinals): Lions; FEET OF CLAY KAEISER(Packers):NPY;
DAN LURVEY (Cardinals):NPY; JUAN GONZALEZ (Texans): NPY;
ORLANDO RODRIGUEZ (Cardinals): Ravens-LOSS; PLEA D (Cardinals):NPY;
BRIAN FREEDMAN(Raiders): Lions; NICK BASCO (Pats): NPY
The Final stats are 30 players started week one- 16 are left.
For the record (and we hate it when attorneys say that in court) we would probably choose the Lions today. The Steelers could be headed for a free fall- all it would take is a Seahawks victory today. The Jets over the Jags is also an OK pick. We like the Falcons at home plus 2.5 in our year long campaign that the Eagles are overrated. We also like the Cowboys to bounce back in their second consecutive road game at San Fran where the Boys are giving 3.
WANTED: FULL TIME BLOGGER. INQUIRE WITHIN. H. Rumpole, proprietor.
As it is written in Ecclesiastes, for everything there is a season. And we think it is time this blog makes a few changes. First and foremost, we are looking for a public face of the blog. You will be the lead blogger, fully responsible for content and clearing comments. From time to time we will offer posts or comments, like our Captan and the Colonel of County Court, but the blog will be yours to take where you want it to go.
Requirements: You should be a practicing attorney in the REGJB. You should be able to rite real goodly. You should know the difference between a JOA and the JQC and if asked how many times Al Sepe was appointed a judge and what happened between his two appointments (ie., you should have a great knowledge of the history of our great courthouse) you should know the answer.
This is no joke. Circumstances change and we must adapt and as the weeks ahead play out it is entirely possible that we will not be able to participate in the blog. We also feel that if we had it to do over again, we would have started the blog the way DOM did it and not remained anonymous. The anonymity thing just disrupted too many people's lives and careers with wrongful accusations. This is our way of saying sorry.
Be warned that if you apply and are chosen, you may well be accused of starting the whole thing to begin with. To that end, we may have to bite the bullet and identify ourself to a person we trust, like say DOM, who could then verify the new blogger is not us. In any event, send us a short email if you are interested and we will go from there.
See You In Court.
PS: This is serious. Not some joke. It is no where near April 1st.
