2014 NFL Picks Week 8

Compared to last week, this week was a let down at 11-4. Realistically I'm not going to go 13-1-1 every week, so 11-4 is pretty good if you ask me. After finishing 5-8 week 4, I have at least 11 correct picks in each of the last 3 weeks with a 35-9-1 record. That's good for 78%, and has helped in raising my overall percentage to 67%. I had no upset picks last week, but did correctly choose the winner (barely) for my pick of the week. I remain at an even 9-9 in upset picks and improve to 6-1 for picks of the week. Let's look at where I went wrong before picking Week 8's games.

I can't figure Cleveland out this year, as they look good at times but then lose to (previously) winless Jacksonville. Even if I had picked upsets I would not have picked Jacksonville, nor would I have picked St. Louis to beat Seattle. I highly doubt anybody had that game correctly picked. Chicago can't seem to win at home, and fell flat against Miami. Finally, Kansas City upset San Diego on the road, but that wasn't a huge surprise in my opinion.

Download 'Push' from "Lourde"

By "Lourde" of course I mean Randy Marsh. Since there's no new South Park this week, download the song "Push" from the episode 2 weeks ago instead!

Can people settle down about the Cowboys?

They have yet to beat a team with a current winning record. The combined winning % of their opponents is 39% (15-23). For reference, the Eagles opponents' is 38% (13-21), and they have beaten a current winning team (Colts). Also, both teams lost against the 49ers (4-3).

Let's wait until Thanksgiving, yeah?

Sorry for the slacking

I've always aimed to post at least once per day here at the B Long Blog, but lately school and life has gotten in the way. So I just wanted to apologize for missing a few more days than usual, but bear with me for a while! I'll be back to normal once I can, but in the meantime you can still expect great content.

Thanks for the understanding, readers.

2014 NFL Picks Week 7

Holy shit, what a week of picks for me! I finished Week 6 at an impressive 13-1-1, easily my best mark since I've started picking every week. I was 1-0 for upset picks (Chicago over Atlanta) and San Diego won (barely) over Oakland as my pick of the week. I am now 9-9 in upset picks (50%) on the season, and 5-1 (83%) in picks of the week. My overall % increased by over 4% to 66%, which is probably my best mark at this point in the season. My only loss was picking Seattle over Dallas, and there was a tie in the Cincinnati/Carolina game (though I did have Cincinnati winning).

Eagles vs Giants: Behind the Numbers 2014

I won't lie, I was a bit nervous heading in the Sunday night game last week. The New York Giants had been playing pretty well, winning 3 straight along the way. While the Philadelphia Eagles came into the match-up at 4-1, they had yet to really impress a majority of fans. My, how one game can change all of that! The Eagles dominated the Giants, winning 27-0 in impressive fashion. They will head into the bye week at 5-1, tied with the Dallas Cowboys (surprisingly). Let's look back at the Eagle's first shut out since before Andy Reid was coach:
