Dan Slowey: Top Prognosticator, 2009!

3 Jan

also available at www.SethSpeaks.net

The Jets just completed their 37-0 win over the Cincinnati Bengals tonight. It will be interesting to see how that matchup goes next weekend in the playoff’s first round. In fact, it will be interesting to see rematches in the two NFC playoff games next weekend too. The Cowboys crushed the Eagles to take the #3 seed and will get to play the #6 seed, the Eagles. The Packers destroyed the Arizona Cardinals, in Arizona, and it means that they get… to fly back to Phoenix later this week for a rematch. Crazy!

And the Minnesota Vikings showed up today too. I don’t think it is much of a surprise that the Vikings crushed the Giants. But the Cowboys win, coupled with the Vikings win, meant that the Vikings get a much-needed first-round bye next weekend. 

But most important to all of you, I’m sure, is that we have a new champion in the SethSpeaks.net NFL “Expert” Picks Panel. Dan Slowey, the author of Blogonoscopy, is the champion. He gained an early lead in the standings and managed to hold onto the lead the remainder of the season. So, congratulations to Dan! I’m happy, and surprised, that I came in second place. Blake Meyer led the way in Week 17 to tie Steve Blevins for third place.  Below are the overall standings for the 2009 NFL “Expert” Picks. Please be sure to check out the blogs for the participants.

    4th place and behind Steve Blevins?… I demand a recount!
    P.S. My Bengals will beat Shooter Hunt’s Jets 24-10 next week.
