As most of you are aware, I am writer for the sketches that appear on the NFL pregame show on Fox. This Sunday is our last one of the year and I think it has the potential to be one of our best in the 4 years I've been involved. Frank Caliendo will be playing more than 1 chararcter, doing a group of people no one else would dare. If you want to catch it, the sketch is set to air on Fox before the NFL Championship game. My guess is the sketch will appear sometime between 3:15-3:40 EST time.
I didn't make any picks last week, as the schedule seemed to be a bit of a trap. Since I picked the Colts to win it all at the beginning of the year, I'm going to stick with them to finally put away all their playoff demons, by beating the Pats by more than 3 points. (3 star selection)
While most have been focused on the offense of the Bears, it's their defense that I have problems with. Since they lost safety Mike Brown, they haven't been the same and when all-pro defensive tackle Tommy Harris joined him on the IR, it only added to their decline. The weather seems to be decent and even though I'm not crazy about dome teams playing in cold weather, I think Brees and McCallister will control the ball. Mild play on the Saints getting 2 points. (2-star)
