I think they should have let Fisher coach this last game because he totally has the Seahawks' number. There have been some fun moments in the film of the prior games.

But let's not be too sad, for now, due to Fisher's demise, thar's a Fassel head coaching in the NFL again!

I would not be surprised to see the Rams win. But then again, I am no longer surprised by darn near everything.

We have a pick'em going with some of the extended family and there's only 10 of us and I have yet to win a single week with basically the same picks I use here. Better yet, after my relatively poor showing this week, my 92 year old grandmother is now a full 7 games clear of me on the season total. She doesn't even watch football unless the boys are over to watch the Packer game and needs a cheat sheet to match the team names that show in the standings in the paper (her only research) to the city names on the pick sheet (you might say use a different pick sheet but my uncle is adamant that she learns that the Cowboys are from Dallas one of these years). Anyway, I just wanted you to know that you might be losing to me but my grandma would absolutely kick your ass at picking NFL games.

The way this is going for me I might have to look up tron's grandmother and find out if she is single. Of course, I would have to do something about my current wife, but those things can be arranged. No, I'm not looking to put out a contract. If we split everything in half, I would actually come out ahead, so maybe that would work.
