No Lions this week... Might be the best Sunday until the end of football season.

Buccaneers all the way this week

The Buccaneers will win the Super Bowl this week? Somebody get Vegas on the line!

Wow, Denver over Indy and Minnesota over the Pats? That's making a statement, Hoser.

LBB, I look at it like this -- if you're going to suck in a very public way ... at least do it with some gusto.

Hey...no fair making Jacksonville play a doubleheader! Jaguars 29, Cowboys 22 Eagles 27, Jaguars 20

I guess the Jag's go 1-1 this week.

Damn it. I do that every other week. Pantheon, can you make that Panthers 29, Cowboys 22? (fixed)

Panthers... Jaguars... all those cats look the same. Apart from the Lions. They're special.

Dude needs to proofread those predictions.

I think not using a splell chkeker makes you suck in a very public way. Dude needs to proofread those predictions. It's all a matter of perception. Some might say that posting nothing more than a gripe over some pretty minor, pedestrian grammatical errors directed at somebody who is putting in the effort of contributing a column every week on his own dime might be sucking in a very public way. With such an economical approach to posting -- 14 in 4.5 years -- one would think there would be more substance. You could have at least pointed out how crappy his track record is to date. Seriously, what kind of person uses another's self-deprecation as an opportunity to heap more unapologetic deprecation?

Many apologies. Didn't mean to hurt feelings and ruffle feathers. My predictions would be no better.

Actually, Bixby's right. I didn't spell check this week, and I should have. I'm someone who complains about keeping the quality of this site up by using proper grammar and spelling -- I should practice what I preach. I'm sending the Pantheon a new copy with corrections made, and from now on, I'll do so. People complaining about how bad my predictions are, though, always shock me. The few I've found so far are: The Linebacker, Toronto Star: 43-51-5 The Sun Newspapers: Rob Longley and Randall the Handle, both 42-50-8 Jeff Zillgitt, USA Today: 48-49-3 Vinnie Iyer, The Sporting News: 42-58 Admittedly, I suck at picking the Locks and the Trifecta, but hell, if I were good at that, I'd be sitting on a solid gold throne and asking one of my Swedish massage girls type this for me. Or maybe my wife. Anyway, Bixby (why am I hearing the closing theme from The Incredible Hulk in my head?), thanks for the wake-up call. Tune in next week.

wfrazerjr: Thoughtful of you to go to the trouble of making revisions. As for my part, no more offhanded and flippant comments with inflammatory content. Had meant it to be mildly humorous, but it wasn't even vaguely so. I look forward to the next set of predictions.

People complaining about how bad my predictions are, though, always shock me. I wasn't, for the record. I was suggesting that one might expect someone who is taking the time to tear apart the grammar to use the opportunity to tear the rest of it apart as well. (Maybe throw in some comments about your mother, too?) Sorry if I wasn't clear in that regard. I obviously also misintrepreted Bixby's intentions, and was only trying to defend the effort. Apologies to both of you for getting involved at all. I do wish you would start sending some clearer signals about whether or not you suck, though. And I think there's a grammatical error in your sentence about the Swedish massage girls.

"I did not have sex with that woman." -- wfrazerjr.

Actually, BP, that really wasn't directed at you. I post these picks on my blog and a couple football sites and caught some flak there. I just thought I'd post what I'd found in searching. "I did not have sex with that woman." -- wfrazerjr I sure as hell did.

At 50% picking ratio,you should be a weatherman.Correct" COLTS" WIN AT Denver and, you may just boost your % Hoser.Colts got Denver's number and The new Edge ...."ADDAI" IS JUST GETTING STARTED AND HE'S FASTER..........

The Steelers will start a winning streak this week, and should make it into the playoffs. Defending SB Champs need some respect besides hearing that Big Ben is Overrated.

"ADDAI" IS JUST GETTING STARTED "ADDAI?" What, is that not his real name, or something? And fraze, that's no little girl, that's Linda Damn Blair, thankyouverymuch. BullpenPro: I'm just joking with fraze; put the gun down!
