Because the Bengals have been looking like they are about to go belly up! I picked the Eagles, too!

5-4 through the 1 PM games. Not good, but compared to how much of a tossup this week has been if I can get to .500 I'll gladly take that.

Same thing I was doing! I thought Kaepernick was playing better and Bears a backup QB figured 49ers would win! This may turn out to one of my worst weeks, I think.

Same here! The exact logic I was using as well...what in the world happened?

Kaepernick was benched in the 4th qtr. according to USA Today, he completed 1 of 5 for 4 yards and they waited until the 4th? Did I read that right? He did rush for some yards but was sacked 5 times, sounds like a mess of a game. I still say Chip Kelly needs to go back to college, watching some games this weekend, this is where Kelly should be.

And, oh, good grief, worse than I thought! 5-8, what was I thinking this week??? Seahawks and Colts, don't know why I picked the Colts again, awful picks!

Another one who picked the 49ers for the same reasons as you did, Susan.

But I'm 10-3 so far, with the Seahawks and Colts for the night games. Better than normal for me, and I made my picks in about 1 minute last night. I usually spend a half hour "analyzing" and making changes to my original picks but didn't have time for that this time. Wifey asked, "Ready for bed?"

I said, "Just a minute."

Agreed! Chip Kelly needs to go back to school. Thankfully I didn't watch my dumpster-fire 49ers wet the bed, but Kaepernick and Gabbert went a combined 5 for 15 for 39 yards? I understand the field conditions were rough due to the snow, but Matt Barkley managed to throw for 192 and both Osweiler and Rodgers threw for over 200 in similar conditions at Lambeau. This loss is solely on Chip Kelly and his conservative game plan for this game. The 49ers can't stay committed to the run and win football games because their defense is so horrendous. They give up the most points in the NFL, so they need to throw the ball more. Carlos Hyde is a good running back, but he's always going to face a better defense than the 49ers have, and it's not difficult to stop a team that's one-dimensional. 49ers are not like the Broncos who can rely on their ground game because they have a stellar defense to bail them out. They should be airing it out simply because what do they have to lose at this point? They're 1-11! I'd rather see Kaep or Gabbert go 11 for 50 than 5 for 15 combined. At least it'd seem like they're trying to win a football game.

Anyway, I'm a pathetic 8-5 on my picks with the Seahawks and Colts to go. I missed the Cowboys, Lions, Bucs, Cardinals, and Bengals.

Well, 10-3 and 8-5 sound good to me with my 5-8. I got Cowboys, missed 49ers, Chiefs, Ravens, Steelers plus yours!

Strange start to Panthers and Seahawks and Seahawks didn't get a TD, with the ball gifted to them at the 7 yard line.
