Kibbles and Picks 2017 - Week 17

Not going to lie to you folks – it’s not looking good.

I had a pretty solid showing in Week 16, going 11-5 with my picks. Alas, it wasn’t enough to make up any ground on Stella. In fact, thanks to her own 12-4 record, she actually added to her lead. She’s got a solid cushion of five games with just one week of picks left to go.

However … there’s still a chance.

Stella and I are at odds on eight games this week. Fully half the schedule is in play here on the season’s final Sunday. So the possibility of a furious, nigh-historic comeback is still real. Not likely, mind you – even taking six of eight games won’t cut it.

And so, for the final time in the 2017 regular season, here is Kibbles and Picks.

Kibbles and Picks 2017 - Week 16

For the love of … what’s a guy got to do to make a move?

I went 13-3 – 13-3! – yet only managed to pick up one lousy game thanks to Stella putting up a 12-4 week of her own. We’re down to the wire – just this week and next remain – and Stella’s current lead of four games appears to be close to insurmountable.

It’s particularly tough sledding in Week 16, as there just aren’t that many matchups where Stella and I are at odds. Just five, in fact, and most of those are ones where I made contrary picks because we’ve reached a point where I have to gamble to have any shot at making up ground.

Kibbles and Picks 2017 – Week 15

The struggle continues.

Thanks to a 10-6 record in Week 14, I’ve sliced one game from Stella’s lead. She went 9-7, which means that her advantage is a still-daunting five games with just three weeks (counting this one) left. We’re in the home stretch – I’m running out of time to take my shot.

I’ve got seven games where I can potentially make up some ground here in Week 15. It’s a chance to make a huge move. Conversely, Stella can put this thing out of reach. Most likely, we’ll come down somewhere between the two extremes.

Kibbles and Picks 2017 - Week 14

Hey guys – remember when I was cutting into Stella’s lead?

Turns out that I’m going to have to continue putting up ridiculous numbers to have any shot at her. Despite a strong 10-6 showing in Week 13, I actually lost the game I gained back in Week 12. Yeah, Stella went 11-5. Because of course she did.

Kibbles and Picks 2017 - Week 13

Believe it or not, I actually made some progress last week.

I managed to gain on Stella courtesy of a 12-4 record in Week 12. However, my gain was minimal – just a single game – thanks to her own very strong 11-5 run for the week. As things stand, her lead is at five games as we enter Week 13.

There’s a chance for a big move, though – we’re at odds in seven of this week’s matchups. A strong showing could lead to some major progress for me … or a nigh-insurmountable lead for her.

Kibbles and Picks 2017 - Week 11

That’s how you do it.

Big weeks from both Stella and myself – we each went 11-3. This means that Stella’s lead remains at six games, but it should be noted that the only games either one of us got wrong were ones on which we disagreed. We went 3-3 in the six that we contested … and 8-0 in the rest.

We picked some football is what I’m saying.

Kibbles and Picks 2017 – Week 2

And we’re off to the races once again.

I feel lucky to have escaped the first week only one game behind Stella. Thanks to a strong performance from the Vikings on Monday night, I landed at 9-6, while she starts the season at 10-5. Considering that I usually start the season in a much deeper hole, I’m calling this a victory.

(For the record: I was right on the Raiders, the Rams and the aforementioned Vikings. Stella correctly called the Ravens, the Lions, the Eagles and the Packers.)
