So, after a strong 13-3 record in Week 5, I fell back to mediocrity.
I posted an 8-6 record in Week 6 to go to 56-38. At least I won with my Tampa Bay pick over my Philadelphia Eagles in last Thursday night’s game. And I have no plans to pick the Eagles to win for a long time. They continue to struggle offensively in the first half. Here’s an idea for head coach Nick Sirianni — RUN THE BALL!!!!
My 58th birthday is Sunday. It would be nice if the Eagles gave me a birthday present with a win over the Las Vegas Raiders. But I fully expect to be disappointed. Again.
