Not that you care, but we have an office pool here at 98.5 The Sports, comprised largely of the folks on the business side, specifically the sales staff. Yours truly won the weekly prize last week by going 11-4 against the spread, giving me 93 wins for the season. If you look below, you’ll notice that we here at Pick It and Stick It went 9-6 last week, which is worse than my individual performance.
See where I’m going with?
These bums are weighing me down.
With that in mind, I’d like to introduce you to Jim (The Anvil) Murray and Mike (Cement Shoes) Felger.
But I digress.
The obvious talk of the town this week has been the Patriots inaptly named offense, which reeks like Faneuil Hall on a hot summer day. De facto offensive coordinator Matt Patricia is on the hot seat. Bill Belichick – whom empowered Patricia and Joe Judge on that side of the ball – is getting much of the scrutiny. And entering the final five weeks of the season, the Pats’ offense is what is, which is to say that is stinks.
Can the Pats win this week? Sure, largely because their opponent, the Arizona Cardinals, have one of the worst defenses in football. (Talk about a pillow fight.) Nonetheless, we’ll have to wait until Monday night to find out. In the interim, here are our selections with five weeks to go during the regular season.
Last Week: 9-6.
Season to date: 95-83-4.
