Oh it was a mighty fine week indeed! My best week ever. My record in week 8 was 11-2. I beat every last expert at ESPN. You can see the facts right here for yourself. I should have bet money in Vegas. I would have made a load of cash.
However, the results were still better than they appear. My Rams upset the hell out of the Saints. This was one of my two losses. I will count that as an honorary win, even though it goes down on my record as a loss. I was happy to be wrong in this case.
This means I had only one real defeat this week. This was the Vikings vs. Panthers game in which Christian Ponder outgunned Cam Newton. This was a bit surprising, but not a mind blowing things. Let's face the facts folks: These are two teams with losing records, both last year and this year. Further, they both started rookie QBs. It's terribly difficult to figure out who will win such a battle. Choosing between two tomato cans is tougher than choosing between two heavy weights. Inconsistency is one of properties of lesser football teams.
I will consider things very carefully before posting my Week 9 predictions. I still hope for an undefeated week.
