Kibbles and Picks 2017 - Week 5

That was fun while it lasted.

My lead over Stella lasted precisely one week, thanks to another break-even week from me and a solid 10-6 performance from the pooch. Only Stella’s odd affection for the Browns – I assume it’s a Dawg Pound thing – and a two-point win by the Eagles kept me from getting really trounced.

(For what it’s worth, she was right on the Saints, the Steelers, the Titans and the Broncos.)

We’re at odds on a half-dozen games – same as last week. Hopefully, I can keep things close, but it kind of feels like things are on the verge of getting a little bit out of hand.

Kibbles and Picks 2016 Week 7

Wellit was fun while it lasted.

Turns out my comeback run was destined to be all too brief. I put up a real stinker in Week 6, managing to go just 7-8 the first sub-.500 week of the season on either side. Stella didn't have a spectacular week, but 9-6 is enough to neatly erase the meager gains I made last week.

Kibbles and Picks 2016 Week 4

Slow and steady wins the race. At least, I hope so.

Week 3 wasn't a great one for either Stella or I, but it was ever-so-slightly better for me. I managed a 9-7 record on last week's slate, while she went 8-8; in essence, we simply flip-flopped our Week 2 records, leaving Stella with the same three-game lead she had after the opening week.

Kibbles and Picks 2016 Week 3

All things considered, it could have been worse.

Things looked good for me going into the last few games last week where I promptly finished with three straight losses. I wound up going 8-8 overall; not bad for a week featuring so many surprises.
