NFL Picks Week Two

We kicked the 2017 pick season off with a bang by unanimously picking the New England Patriots to win the NFL opener. They of course lost handedly ensuring that the View From The Pine Unanimous Seal of Approval of DEATH! remains a near 100% guarantee.

And you better believe we’ve got some unanimous decisions this week. So run, don’t walk, to your booky and bet in the opposite direction. It’s the best investment you can make. Continue reading “NFL Picks Week Two”


NFL Picks Week One

I know what you’re thinking. Why is the banner image for an NFL picks column a pug. Well, to that I’d say the NFL is like my pug1 that ran away. He’s kind of annoying and I’d have more time for other activities without him, but here I am still looking at all these other pugs. Plus their faces look like they’ve run headfirst into stuff too much. So you know…

I don’t know where this is going. Let’s just get our first NFL picks column of the season! NFL Picks Week One here we come! Continue reading “NFL Picks Week One”


Picks From The Pine: NFL Week Nine

It is getting ever more difficult to pick 2 games of the week. There seems to be 1, “Eh that game could be ok” game and a bunch of “Why would I watch that game” matchups each week. This week we’re going with Denver at Oakland in what has to be the latest point in a season the Raiders have had a chance to take sole possession of 1st place since the Rich Gannon days. Rich Gannon is that even right? Or am I mixing up the last name with the bad guy from Zelda?

That’s how forgettable the Raiders have been. On to the pick!

David: 17
Steve: 15
Tim: 13
Jason: 12

Picks From The Pine: NFL Week Eight

Is it just me or has the NFL just had some terrible matchups this season? There’s no team that’s really great. But there are an awful lot of teams that fall directly in the category of mediocre. Probably explains why no one is watching the NFL.

3 of the 4 1 loss teams didn’t have their starting quaterback for the 1st 4 weeks. 2 still don’t. And the other 1 lost team, the Seahawks, played to a 6-6 tie on Sunday night. In a true showcase of how “meh” the NFL has become.

I guess we’ll still do picks. Does anyone even care?

Picks From The Pine: NFL Week Seven

Before we begin I just want to remind everyone that I won the regular season picks last year here at View From The Pine with a 32-35 record. Which has me just as surprised as you guys that I’m currently on pace for, oh, 20-48. But I’m in 4th in my picks pool. No idea.

Steve went 2-2 to take over sole possession of second place from Tim who went 1-3 last week. While David continued his hot streak to go 11-1 over the last 3 weeks. Will he keep it up? Only time, and this week’s picks, will tell. Continue reading “Picks From The Pine: NFL Week Seven”


Picks From The Pine: 2016 NFL Week Six

We’re back with a picks article this week after a 1 week hiatus. We still made picks last week. Just no one sent me notes to complete the article. Picks from last week can be found in the latest episode of The PineCast. 

I do know that I went 3-1 last week. Which probably did absolutely nothing to move me up the rankings. Let’s get into the reason you’re all here though, week 6 NFL Picks.

Free Agent Fan Week 3

New York Giants

The Rams are gone and I’m taking suitors for a new team. So far, we’ve contemplated staying a Rams fan and crossing to the darkside with the Patriots.

This weekend, I laid motionless on my couch, phone propped on my gut, watching my fantasy team get beaten again (0-3 baby!) and thought about which team I should watch. I landed on the NY Giants since their game with the Redskins happened to be on Redzone the most and the remote was just out of reach. So let’s do this.
