Let’s not spend time reviewing last week. It was football in the twilight zone. What in the world happened? How did Cleveland lose to Cincinnati? The Lions really beat the Eagles IN Philly? Say what? And there’s no way Arizona should have lost to Buffalo. Was it a full moon or something? Did the planets align in reverse order? There wasn’t a Friday the 13th. Perhaps the Probability Drive on the Heart Of Gold kicked in and turned the football into a pot of petunias. It was a miserable week in the twilight zone, that’s for sure.
The final result of which is killing my average from last year. The Prince however ended the week at 50%. Not bad for making his picks on gut instinct. He seems to have totally abandoned his method of picking the animal over the non-animal. And the bigger animal over the smaller animal. He still has some commentary about that, but it no longer weighs as heavily on his decision. He still picks from loyalty however. I don’t think he’ll ever pick against his Eagles. He really likes that bird.
As sad as it was, here’s our Week 6 results. You really should skip this and go to the Week 7 picks below.

Hopefully we’ll both do better this week. Sadly I’m picking against my Redskins this week. But I simply don’t think they can take on the Giants at home. I’m giving San Fran the edge over Seattle only because they’re playing at home. I couldn’t bring myself to pick Dallas this week. They seem to be self destructing. As a Redskin fan that’s fine with me. I’d really like to go with Baltimore, I think they actually have something this year. But I don’t think it’s enough to take on Houston at home. A lot of people are saying the Patriots hit their peak and they’re fading fast this season. I don’t think you can count them out, especially at home.
