11-3 with Christmas Day to go. I also picked Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

Still can't figure out why Coach B gave up Grappolo......guy has been a rock star since his first game in San Francisco!

Somehow, I don't think it was a Belichick decision (i.e. Kraft). He always goes with the long-term interest of his team in mind.

I am really impressed with what Garappolo has accomplished so far. Having mentioned that but I imagine most Patriots fans still have a sick feeling in their stomach at the possible expense of mortgaging their future, even if they're fans of Brady.

I'm at 10-4. After making my initial picks last night I wasn't too rushed so looked them over... and changed two of the games. Missed them both.

For today: Ravens & Vikings. With the Packers officially eliminated it goes back to Brett Hundley for next 2 weeks, and purple people eaters are licking their chops. Ravens SHOULD beat the Colts by at least 2 touchdowns, emphasis on should, but why do I have a really bad feeling about this game??

Browns at Bears. Battle of the unemployed coaches as both coaches will be unemployed next week. By the way, is Hue Jackson the worst coach in NFL history??
Falcons at Saints. Saints really should have won a couple weeks ago in Atlanta, and won't lose at home in N'awlins.
Lions at Bengals. I really don't like picking the Lions on the road, but man the Bengals have thrown in the towel on the season if the Bears game last weekend was any indication. Lions should devour them.
Buccaneers at Panthers. Panthers keep pace in the NFC South, and if the Saints lose to the Falcons again we would have a 3 way tie atop the division
Dolphins at Chiefs. Chiefs have seemed to find their footing.
Broncos at Redskins. Woof! Who the hell knows??
Chargers at Jets. Chargers, who started slow out of the gate, rebounded from an 0-4 start to tie for the division lead and had a second half implosion at Kansas City last weekend which effectively ended their season. Traveling cross country, even with Bryce Petty starting, I think the Jets take this one.

I'll get the 4 PM Sunday games and the 2 Monday games in the afternoon.

Cards/Giants what an awful game to have to sit through,
Garappolo has been playing great, but the Jags defense will really be the first good defense heís gone up against.
Cowboys get Zeke back and this looks like itís it for the Seahawks.
Steelers @ Texans. Steelers should bounce back from the Pats loss as the Texans are strictly playing for draft position at this point.
Raiders @ Eagles. Eagles will officially eliminate the Raiders from playoff position, if they aren't eliminated from that already.

Especially after Brady retires and no real replacement to carry Pats to a new era. As a 49ers fan, it was sad to see Joe Montana go but there is no regret that the 49ers made the right decision to pick Steve Young over Joe Montana. With the decision to go younger, it extended our dynasty years longer.

Well, I suppose a Merry Christmas to you all from Belichick is in order?
