Tis the Season – League of DYKS Week 16 NFL Picks

Our guest this week in the “Do You Know Sports” picks league (DYKS pronounced DICKS) is Jesse Buck the superstar MVP of Pumpkin Pie Bowl I and II. Jesse is our last guest of the season and needs at least a 4-1 record to qualify for the week 17 guest playoff. The top four guests and ties qualify for the playoff. Ethan Wilcox with a 5-0 week 14 showing clinched a spot, Steve Cervizzi Jr. with a 4-1 record in week 2 clinched a spot and Ray Kandolin of week 7 and Jay Fitts of week 5 with 3-1 records clinched at least a tie for the fourth and final playoff spot. Jesse and all the DYKS guys need to pick at least 5 games this week. The final week of the season our guests and all the DYKS guys will pick all 17 games and a regular season champion for the DYKS guys will be crowned and the guest with the best record in week 17 will get the opportunity to go against the DYKS guys for the entire playoff’s.

Cousin James “Greenwell 39” had a rough week going 2-3 but now makes it 13 straight weeks in first place but he has a slim one hundredth percentage point lead of Jerry “Jonuts”. Joel “the Joker” continued his hot streak going 4-1 as did Andy “AK47” and Bracket Brother Dan “MJ Madness” have also close the gap significantly with the leader making the last couple weeks a sprint for the finish to get the regular season crown.

There are a couple weeks left but the “Do You Know Sports” guys have proved that they are not the usual common know it all jerk at the office or job site that thinks they know sports as all but one member is above the .500 winning percentage.

Tis the season for crazy things and nothing is crazier than the New York Giants season through 14 games, The Giants didn’t just lose the game, they lost their minds (Odell Beckham) and almost any chance for a playoff spot this year. Another end of the game heartbreak loss to go with the countless others this season. Eli Manning has proved to be an elite quarterback this year behind a makeshift line, poor running game and constantly chasing points due to an inept defense. Good thing for Eli and the coaching of Tom Coughlin and the roster that some NFL experts feel is the worst the Giants have had in over a decade or it could of been much worse. The sad thing is Coughlin will lose his job and Jerry Reece dug both of their graves.

I still have hope as I look back at 2007 and how awful they were playing but somehow snuck into the playoff’s and then went on to win the Super Bowl. This might be a case of Déjà vu all over again.

The Picks: Last Week 10-6, overall 118-106. “The Joker” last week 11-5, overall 119-105. You can hear all “the Joker” picks on the Jeffrey Belanger Podcast.
