NFL Picks Week 7

What's going on here?

Last week's 10-3 makes my record on the year 65-25. Last year it took me until week 13, in December, to reach 40 games over .500.

This surely won't continue.

I feel funny even posting about football with the World Series going on. But it's difficult to blog about baseball right now.
Long time readers know of my unwillingness to comment on baseball series while they are going on, although I have occasionally broken that rule.

But I'll make one baseball comment as it relates somewhat to football. Last night's game featured a blown call that may or may not have had something to do with the outcome of the game. The NFL doesn't allow that to happen due to instant replay. You've got to get it right when two teams are playing for a championship.
The baseball powers have to do something about their lack of instant replay usage.

At any rate, back to football picking. I'm in second place, one game behind Golic. The rest of the ESPN Experts picks are here.

Six teams have a bye this week, thirteen games on the slate.

And there are still 3 winless teams- St. Louis, Miami and Indianapolis. I'm starting to become a believer, that it's possible any of them could run the table in reverse like the Lions 3 years ago. Having two teams do it would be awesome.

Jets.
Chicago.
Carolina.
Detroit.
Cleveland.
Miami.
Tennessee.
Oakland.
Pittsburgh.
Green Bay.
Dallas.
New Orleans.
Baltimore- Monday Night.

Interesting that you should say that, since the Seahawks lost a touchdown on Sunday due to a penalty walkback on a kickoff return. The two guys in the booth commenting on the game certainly thought the pushing in the back call was wrong. Maybe the Seahawks coach didn't think the call would get reversed. Of course, this wasn't a championship game, either. Just a contest between two teams to see who screwed up the least.

Barb!

Sorry, I've neglected my blog this week and just now noticed you left a comment. But I've been distracted.

I didn't see that, and I'm not even advocating regular season replay. But you can't be a major league sport and let a blown call determine the outcome.
