• Week 10 Runnin' and Gunnin': Pick the High Score of the Week



    Man, when did this game get so hard?! No winners, again. That’s a full month since anyone sipped champagne from the trophy. We went from four straight weeks with a winner, to four flushed.

    I think the lesson here is that when people whisper that Tom Brady is done, bet the house on him. 23 of 33, 432 yards and 4 TDs. Yeah, he’s done. Meanwhile, the guy a lot of us thought would be the most prolific QB of Week 9 is out with a bum shoulder. Mercifully, it’s not his throwing arm.

    They say that every failure is just an opportunity to start fresh. So daubers up, here’s your schedule for Week 10. Gotta say, nobody jumps out at me. Denver’s on the road in a divisional dogfight. Aaron Rodgers against Philly’s secondary is tempting, but Seneca Wallace not so much. The 49ers are rolling but Carolina’s defense allows the second-fewest points per game. Luck versus Jeff Fisher? Yeah, that’s the ticket. Indianapolis.

      Tempted to go with the Jags, but I'll take more of a risk and be the first to jump on Denver.

      Holy cow. I picked the Colts. Not only do they trail 24-0, they also have but 74 yards in the first half. Jeebus, what a fail by me!

      So unless the Bucs or Dolphins drop a fifty burger, Pruitt scores the win with his pick of the Saints.

      I'd like to thank Monte Kiffin for all of his help.

      All the time! It gets worse as I get older.

      Looking at the low scores of the week, would anybody on earth have picked the Colts (8 points) as the lowest scoring team, with the 49ers (9 points) right behind them? Crazy week. I had to pick a lot of road teams and underdogs to get my 9 wins so far this week.
