You know what good teams do after a tough loss? They bounce back. They spit in the face of controversy. They circle the wagons and treat everyone as the enemy.
You think we’re talking about the Patriots? Please.
We’re referencing the Pick It and Stick It machine here at Felger and Mazz.
Despite getting suckered into picking the Patriots last week, we finished Week 7 with a sterling 10-4 performance, our best effort to date. The only thing that stood between us and an 11-3 performance was the surprising ineptitude of Bill Belichick, who seemingly couldn’t make a choice between Bailey Zappe and Mac Jones while his team was getting run over by the Chicago Bears in Foxboro. This week, Belichick has committed to Jones relatively early and one can only assume that Jones will finish what he starts, independent of the event to take place against the New York Jets on Sunday at the Meadowlands.
Will the Pats do as we did and bounce back?
That remains to be seen.
But regardless, we here at Pick It and Stick It intend to keep marching on.
Last week 10-4.
Season to date: 57-48-3.
