Well, the NFL season is firmly into its “if Team A wins three of their last four while Team B gets arrested in Mexico for indecent exposure, and as long Team C doesn’t cannibalize itself in a plane crash in the Andes, Team D has a slight chance of securing a Wild Card Spot” period, and it’s time to check in with my little NFL Picks contest.
Never before have I sucked more in making my picks each week. I am an abysmal 85-107, which is 44.3%. I could, theoretically, do better by flipping a coin.
Here are the current standings, with 4 regular season and all the playoff weeks/games still to come:
Graham the Conqueror is on top with the only 50%+ score: 99-93 (51.6%)
Next is the always near the top reverseflash with 92-100 (47.9%)
spragger2002 & Jim Simmonds are tied for third with 90-102 (46.9%)
RFTT1985 started out strong this season, but fell down the standings to 89-103 (46.3%)
Yours Truly, annekenstein, is at the bottom of the barrel, with a paltry 85-107 (44.3%)
And it’s not just a couple of bad weeks which have done me in. Every week, I’ve sucked in my picks. Except, I think, two weeks ago when I got something like 9-6.
My Dolphins have had a remarkably frustrating season, too, by the way. A 1-6 start to the season doomed them to any realistic chance of making the playoffs. They’re currently 5-7 and can only hope to play spoiler for others from here on out (even though they are not yet mathematically eliminated from playoff contention).
