The Lineman’s NFL picks: week 3

September 24, 2010

NFL/
That was a hard earned 3-3 in Week Two that could have very easily been 5-1. Really, it could have.

At first glance – and second – this looks the toughest test so far this season with compelling stats to go both ways on a number of games. But no sitting on the fence, so here we go.

Week Seven NFL Picks

October 23, 2009

breesThe Lineman had been in a bit of slump the last three weeks. After a very solid start to the season he has picked just six winners the last three weeks.We were hit hard by upsets last week (give me a break Raiders and Bills both picking up wins).
