Okay, your record last week is really good but you are SO WRONG about Bears losing to Vikings. Yes, the O-line is like 5 baby cubs out there, but there's still some momma bears that'll maul some Minnesotans. If I'm wrong, and we lose, I owe you a highly praise filled comment next week with less commas throughout. Deal?

I CANT BELIEVE YOU PICKED MIAMI we can't be friends anymore.

Astigmatism (#1,950)

@sharilyn Particularly as Miami is worldwide HQ of #suckforluck. There's no way they blow a chance to drop a game to a wounded division rival right now.

keisertroll (#1,117)

@Astigmatism The Eagles won two meaningless games at the end of their worst season ever, and it cost them the chance to draft O.J. Simpson. There used to be a time when this was considered a bad thing.

Niko Bellic (#1,312)

Browns over Raiders? I know Al is dead, but that only makes him scarier. Didn't Amy Trask just issue another one of those statements saying that Mr. Al Davis has no intentions of ceding the control of the team? Don't worry about the game plan either: the end zone interceptions, the 60-yard field goals, and the punts eschewed in favor of 3rd down Hail Marys thrown into double coverage (as well as fakes) will all be there.

Niko Bellic (#1,312)

@Niko Bellic What did I tell ya? The fake filed goal for one TD, the kick-off returned for another, the 4th down backup QB sneak as the 1st play after the starting QB went down… bet on Raiders, it's not a football game, it's a heist!

hockeymom (#143)

Can I pick simply Prince Fielder over the Rams?

Dave Bry (#422)

I never watch football. But I feel like these poems tell me pretty much everything I need to know.

whizz_dumb (#10,650)

@Dave Bry Just don't forget:

"Let us count the ways
Indianapolis sucks.
Every single way."

Because that is the best poem ever written.

koko (#11,361)

Though Denver has a
buy week, you found a way to
reference Tebow.

Also have to say
I wait with bated breath for
this column all week.

@koko
Curmudgeonly, yes,
But a week off is a "bye."
Still, props for "bated."

koko (#11,361)

@Krugmanic Depressive

Damn it spellcheck, why
did you not catch that absurd
semantic mistake?!?

These still do not rhyme
Please, do not jinx the Tigers
Lions can't lend relievers.
