The wildcard round of the playoffs brought us a View From the Pine USAD!1 for the Chiefs. But the Saints were able to overcome the curse and squeak out a win against Carolina. As a group we went 8-8 in our picks for the weekend. We aim to improve upon that in the Divisional Round. Continue reading “NFL Picks Divisional Round”
The Super Bowl is here. We know a few things going in. It’ll be Manning-less. There’s a 50% chance one of the QBs in the Super Bowl will have recently led a terrible Jeff Fisher coached Rams team1. And the Patriots will probably make the Super Bowl again. Continue reading “The View From The Pine Super Bowl LII Preview”
The 2017 NFL playoffs are here. You may have been confused by the inclusion of teams such as The Los Angeles Rams, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Buffalo Bills. That’s right this years NFL playoff teams feature some of the cream of the QB crop with the likes of Jared Goff, Blake Bortles, Case Keenum, and Nick Foles. Not to mention Tyrod Taylor who was benched for a guy that went on to throw 5 interceptions. In a half!1 But I assure you this is actually the NFL playoffs. So let’s get to the picks!

In week 17 we’ve got wildcard spots up for grabs, a division to be decided, and the Browns chasing history. We’ll also have a lot of backups playing against teams that aren’t in contention.

It’s fantasy football championship week! And if you’re not as keen on the fantasy gridiron I guess it’s Week 16 of the NFL. Week 16 is like the penultimate episode of a Game of Thrones season. It’s where all the big shit typically goes down. Then week 17 is just tying up loose ends and giving the bug guys a break to setup for the next season.
On to the picks!
The Philadelphia Eagles established their dominance in the NFC with a home win against the Rams in LA. But in the process they lost Carson Wentz to a knee injury. One thing the Rams didn’t lose after the Jeff Fisher era was a knack for injuring quarterbacks.
Of course as Case Keenum and Jared Goff have shown this year perhaps a quarterback shouldn’t be judged by his time with the Rams. Which is a good sign for the Eagles backup Nick Foles who will be thrust into the starting gig for a playoff run.
Meanwhile the Packers get Aaron Rodgers as they battle to hang in the playoff hunt. Plus we’ve got 2 first place battles and a matchup of the AFC’s top 2 teams. So let’s get to our week 15 picks. Continue reading “NFL Picks Week Fifteen”
We’ve made it to that point of the season where you may start losing interest in the NFL. Especially if your fantasy team didn’t make the playoffs. Or your team might have joined Cleveland in the land of no playoff hope. Or maybe your team was moved to Los Angeles by a guy with a stupid mustache and a spineless front office. But if none of those cases ring true to you then you need some hot NFL pick action. Continue reading “NFL Picks Week Fourteen”
We’ve got tight races going for first and last on The Bench. We’ve also got a few big name battles this week with the Vikings taking on the Falcons and the Panthers taking on the Saints. Not to mention Philly heading to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. Continue reading “NFL Picks Week Thirteen”
