It was hard to bring my thoughts together between fits of extreme sobbing after watching all the football games in a very serious, totally masculine way this weekend. Yes, I lost at Nick’s hands this week, one game away from the championship … in a game where I was “projected” to win by 50 points.…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 15: I’m all out of love, so lost without you
Jacob here. I guess it’s time for us to stop covering up the deep, dark secret we’ve been hiding for the last several weeks. You see, we killed Chadam. It’s not that he was doing a terrible job picking spreads each week … well, actually, he really was falling off there near the end, but,…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money in Week 15
A lot of the action already went down on Thursday, but there are still a few sneaky starts and player concerns this week. Here are a few players that might help or hurt you in staking your claim for a playoff spot on this fine Sunday. Hot Hands Chad Pennington, QB Dolphins vs. Rams –…… Continue reading Week 13 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
There’s no tying in football. None. You only get one sudden death overtime, and if no team can manage to score a single point, you’re done. It’s bad enough that Andy Reid and the Eagles have a hard time managing the clock, but before taking the field to come away even with one of the…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 11: There’s no tying in football
This week, I wanted to educate you on two of my favorite types of bets, the parlay and the progressive parlay. With these two wagers, you can arm yourself with the tools necessary to lose money like Chadam and I do. Excited? photo credit: locusolus A parlay is when you combine several point-spread wagers into…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money in Week 7
It’s about time some of the fantasy studs broke out this year. This week has some matchups to watch. If you ‘bought low’ on guys like Ryan Grant and Maurice Jones-Drew, picked up Deuce McAllister or drafted Bernard Berrian for depth, this week should show you what they’re worth. For those of you who may…… Continue reading Week 6 Hot Hands and Cold Shoulders
These sudden, mysterious and largely unreported injuries have got to stop. Last week, Carson Palmer was a late scratch. This week, the victim was Matt Schaub, who was hit by a virus the night before the game. I normally set lineups Saturday night and then let them run, but this sudden injury plague makes me…… Continue reading Foolish Thoughts on Week 5: And another three bite the dust?
Move over Kevin Garnett, we have a new No. 1 on Chadam’s “Most Hated Athlete for Gambling Purposes” list: Brett Favre. Let me explain. I made a much larger wager than I should have last week given my gambling budget. I was bored and thinking about my upcoming trip to Vegas. These things happen. I…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money in Week 4
Last week, Nick and I were on fire. We had identical picks for 12 of the 15 games, and in those games, the two of us went 8-3 with one push. Sadly, I lost the three picks on which we disagreed. After a sterling 11-3-1 record in Week 2, Nick is now up by three…… Continue reading A Fool and His Money in Week 3
We will do something a little different this week. Considering that you are probably either entering the playoffs or crying with the stall door closed in the men’s (or women’s) restroom, we are just going to take a look at the players that could replace your injured starters. Of those players that are starting, just…… Continue reading Week 14: Save me for the playoffs! Save me!
