Awful. Pathetic. Hapless. Disgraceful. Disgusting. Despicable. Ridiculous. Embarrassing. Inexcusable. Terrible. Horrible. Horrendous. Dreadful.
That sums up my picks last week, and for much of the season, for that matter. After a decent 2011 season (132-124-11 overall, 31-18-2 best bets, 9-2 playoffs), it is official: I have had an atrocious 2012 picking NFL games. The only saving grace is that I didn’t bet on them. And I hope you didn’t either.
With that ringing endorsement, it’s onto the regular-season finale and hoping I can somewhat salvage the season with a solid Week 17 and another sterling playoff run.
