Well, a 3-3 Week 11 keeps us at .500 but we need to make a big move to get up the standings — and get ahead of Ms. Lineman who is leading by one game. Ouch.
Big pat on the back for the ‘Wichita’ Lineman, who came in off the bench last week and produced a solid 4-2 that got our overall record back to .500.
Ouch, that was about the toughest week the Lineman has had to endure ever in the Pick Six. First Green Bay clangs a last second game winning field goal off the post and loses to the Skins then to cap off a painful Week Five, Brett Favre tossed a last second interception that the Jets return for a touchdown and the Vikings fail to cover – UGHHHHHHH.
The Lineman is back baby, 5-1 in Week Four and if not for the Bengals’ surrender in the Battle of Ohio we would have pulled a Kansas City Chiefs – PERFECT. While the Chiefs’ perfect season ends this week in Indy the Lineman gets his shot at perfection in what is a head-scratching Week Five.
OK, I know what you are thinking; after a 2-4 Week Three that a certain German octopus could do a better job of picking winners. True it was a tough week, even Mrs. Lineman got 3-3. But we are nothing if we are not resilient so here we go again with bold predictions for Week Four.
That was a hard earned 3-3 in Week Two that could have very easily been 5-1. Really, it could have. The Eagles failing to cover by .5 and the Raiders happy to give up a score at the death against St. Louis were gut-wrenchers. But then the Texans did come back from the brink to beat the Redskins so, I guess it all evens out in the end. Sort of.
