A bit of a shake up in the power rankings as things start to come into focus a little more. It’s number one, and then a big gap with the other teams. As always, feel free to berate me in the comments section.
Just took one week to get over .500, after an impressive 10-3 showing last week. I told y’all I’d get better at this. Though I’d promise to give more explanations for each game if I got over .500, I won’t get cute this week. I wanna get a comfortable lead before I start yapping at the mouth. Here are the picks.
I’m giving myself a week off. I had to drive Miss Strong Move to the doctor to get x-rays and whatnot (she’s OK) yesterday and have been my brother’s personal driver today so I figure to take the week off, focus on more job applications and have the blogging take a bit of a backseat for the time being. I’ll be back in full force next week. That being said, he are my power rankings for this week, for record keeping.
Until I get my overall record over .500, I’m giving myself a word limit for these point spread columns. I will only give the picks and no explanation until I prove myself worth of getting on top of this digital soapbox. This is so embarrassing. I knew this would be hard, I said it in the first post. This is just a dry run for, you know, when I do start gambling.
We’re one fourth of the way through yet another NFL regular season. It always goes by so fast. October is starting, which means we start to find out every team’s identity. Every week provides a reshuffling of the rankings, but in about a month or so, we will start to see very little change. In addition to the rankings, after every team I will write how I feel this team is trending. Will they be higher, lower, or about the same as these rankings? Here they are, in all their splendor.
Maybe I’ll improve every week. After going 6-9 with one push in the first week, I scored a 9-7 last week. A three game improvement I’ll take it. I’ll get right to the picks this week. I’m pressed for time and really hungry. I’ll give you one sentence for each game (one word is possible) about why I’m picking the way I am. Let’s get to it.
Lions and tigers and…Bills?! Oh my indeed (unless of course, you’ve been following this blog for a few weeks now). Lots of shakeups this week in the power rankings with the sample size now growing to three games. Things are now coming into focus for a lot of teams. I don’t expect these rankings to represent how this will stand in Week 17 (for really good lolz, check out the playoff standings at ESPN.com) but this is where each team stands three weeks into the season.
