NFL Week Six Picks

Conor’s Corner

By Conor Green

So last week, due to time restrictions, I wasn’t able to give my picks. A sad, dark day indeed. But we’re back. My tally is 13-15 thus far. So, I picked up one game in the standings from two weeks ago. Like Bill Belichick, I get better as the season progresses. I coach up my boys, mumble some profanities, and win, win, win.

As the year moves, you get a better key on what teams are all about. I’m going at least .500 for the year. Mark my words. But if it doesn’t happen….Well, then I’ll never acknowledge it.

Five national, two local:

NFL Week 5 Recap: A Little This-A Little That

Conor’s Corner

By Conor Green

The Jets are 3-2. The Giants are 0-5. All the while, Ben McAdoo’s hair baffles and bewilders the masses. As the Joker says, it’s a funny world we live in.

No one knows what’s happening in the Big Apple. The Giants have quickly become the NFL’s horror-show dreamscape. They sport a winless 0-5 record and suffered a season-ending injury to their most marketable player, Odell Beckham. It couldn’t get worse for Big Blue.

Week Four of the NFL season featured more of what we’ve come to expect: Parity. We’re only four weeks into the season and have just one remaining undefeated team. That being the Chiefs, who are 4-0 atop the AFC West.

But that’s the beauty of the NFL. Unlike the NBA where the pundits are virtually never wrong, with football, the pundits are virtually never right.

Robot-Apocalypse (In Baseball Mind You)

By Conor Green

I love science. Not like, Bill Nye the science guy fake science. But like, real person science. Kip Thorne science.

In fact, during college I had an extremely difficult decision to make: What do I want to do with the rest of my life? In the end, it boiled down to two options… Be an astrophysicist with a focus in subatomic particles…. Or cover sports.  Hopefully I made the right decision!

Intriguing NFL Over/Unders

By Conor Green

As the start of the NFL season rolls near, I took a gander at the league’s most interesting over/unders for the 2017 season. If I analyzed them all, this article would run close to ten-thousand words. So instead, I focused on three from the AFC and three from the NFC that I find most intriguing.

Unconventional Popularity

It’s amazing how certain things catch on in culture. Here are some examples. Let’s say I have an idea for a novel. It’s about a teenage wizard. He goes to a wizard high school. He plays a strange sport where you fly on brooms. And his goal is to eventually vanquish the “Dark Lord”.  Sounds pretty convoluted right? Well, the Harry Potter series has sold over 400 million copies, while raking in billions of dollars at the box office in Hollywood.

Routine Decisions

By Conor Green

Human beings are creatures of habit. We go through the same routine day-in and day-out with little variance in how we operate. We wake-up, take a shower, go to work. come home, and go to sleep. This routine is repeated for five days a week. All year round.

IN LIMBO

By Conor Green

This season the New York Football Giants have a chance at winning the NFC East. In the same breath, the Giants also have a good chance to win the NFC as a whole. Big Blue enters 2017 with a top-ten defense from the year before, alongside an offense capable of putting up big numbers across the entirety of the season. The G-Men have all the makings of a legit Super Bowl contender.

On the other hand, the Jets have a chance to be historically bad. Now there have been some awful teams in football since its inception. But after the cake is baked following the conclusion of the 2017-2018 season, the Jets could be in the discussion.

And I couldn’t be more excited.
