    I mean I get it...the guy is trying to use his name to make money for himself. Entrepreneurship, capitalism. An Internet business. All well and fine.

    The only caveat IMO......

    This guy isn't handicapping anything. He's all over the sports map...every fucking sport, NCCA basketball, NCAA football, NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL.

    I got a bridge for ya if you think he's handicapping all these sports.

    I would have to go back and try and isolate each sport and how he's faring in each to really break it down. I suspect the numbers will come in similar to NFL.

    SHIT......I loved Dallas -3 and felt really smart after they led 7-0. Since then, they have been outplayed in every aspect. Jerry kinda/sorta implied that Jason would coach thru the end of this season, but this horrible performance might change his mind. Cowboys host the Rams, then travel to Philly the next two weeks, so their playoff hopes are dimming as the Eagles face the NY Football Giants twice and the Redskins in what must be the easiest schedule for the next four weeks in NFL history.

    If Dallas goes 2-1, beating the Eagles and the Eagles go 3-1, Dallas would win the NFL East tiebreaker because they would have beaten Philly twice. They would host a wildcard game and they'd be one and done for sure. I can't see them beating the Rams. America's team, my ass.

    PS......Who did Dom like tonight?

    I also thought this was a given for Dallas. Also when they went up a quick 7-0.

    they’ve looked bad before....tonight they really look bad.

    don’t know if he picked the game tonight. I never see his pick results until after the game is over. I’m relying on his honesty and I also think his subscribers would call him out if he was putting up results that didn’t match his picks.

    gotta subscribe if ya want his picks prior. $150 month. I think we will pass.

    Has a head coach ever been fired while he was in first place in his division? Obviously, Jason Garrett should update his resume, if he hasn't already done so. Nice guys get fired as NFL head coaches.

    The 2010 Seattle Seahawks won the NFC West with a 7-9 record; hosted the Saints in wildcard weekend and won 41-36 in the "Beast Quake" game. New Orleans was a 10 point favorite on the road. The "12th Man" created such noise and movement that it registered on a local seismic scale, hence the name. No shit!

    The 2014 Carolina Panthers won the NFC South with a 7-8-1 record; hosted the Cardinals and beat them 27-16. Carolina was a 5.5 point favorite.

    Two for two........Hmmm.......I have to remember that.

    $150 a month huh? I think that I'll pass. I'm down $740 this season. Make that down $850 after the Dallas fiasco tonight.

    You picked a team from the south (Dallas) led by a QB who played at Ole Mess to win a road game in Chicago in December????

    This game violated one of my unwritten rules....but I overruled anyway, picking the away team favorite on a featured night game. I should have listened.

    I'm beginning to think the best approach is to simply set up a plan of picking that is consistent.....and run with it from beginning to end.

    Biggest favorites
    Biggest underdogs
    Home team underdogs
    Etc, etc.

    Or...flip a coin.

    Yes, Horn is coming on strong after a slow start. At this point, with 4 weeks left, it’s going to be very difficult for me or Duck to catch the leaders. Both of us are 5 wins under you.

    Speak for yourself, "bottom- feeder". "I'm going to the top, the very top" I'm going to start my "(Turkoman)" stretch kick.

    To make up 5 picks out of 20 remaining is a lot to expect. Of course you can make that up especially if you get help from me, but the issue will be that others between me and you will also make up ground.
