NFL Predictions 2014 – Playoffs

NFL Predictions 2014 – Playoffs

Here are my predictions for the playoffs of the 2014 NFL season. I started doing this last year, and I must say I was quite accurate. I correctly predicted the final records of 5 teams (Seahawks, Dolphins, Colts, Oakland, and Minnesota), if you don’t count Minnesota’s tie. Also I correctly predicted 4 out of the 8  division winners, and 7 out of the 12 playoff teams. I know, I know, you are amazed at my accuracy!! With nowhere to go but up, I will predict this year’s NFL standings.

Here are my other preditions: AFC Predictions NFC Predictions

Blame Game

We live in a society that likes to place blame. In fact, we can’t we aren’t satisfied until we find out who’s fault things are.  I’ve seen this recently in a few different news stories. (Disclaimer: I’m not saying the people involved in these instances are to fault or not, I’m just using examples.)

imageFirst was the tragedy of cruise ship that hit a rock and “sank”.  Instantly, the media, those watching, etc had to know why it happened and who’s fault it was. Of course blame has been put on the captain of the ship. (Side rant: People need to get off the guys back.  If any of were in his situation, and the chaos of a sinking ship was happening, who’s to say that we wouldn’t have acted in a similar way.  The guy’s human. Who cares if he was eating? Is he not supposed to eat for a who week while piloting the ship?) For whatever reason, we need to find someone to blame.

Thursday Randomness

I was checking the latest news on my iphone last night, and this was one of the top stories!  I couldn’t stop laughing, despite my wife feeling sorry for the guy.  Seriously though, you can’t not laugh at this story.  And I love the re-enactment photo.

 

Teacher OK after crashing into bear on a bicycle

The Associated Press

bear MISSOULA, Mont. – A middle school teacher suffered some bruising and a big scratch on his back after he struck a bear while riding his bicycle to school.

Jim Litz said he was traveling about 25 mph Monday morning when he came upon a rise and spotted a black bear about 10 feet in front of him. He didn’t have time to stop and T-boned the bruin.

He tumbled over the handlebars, his helmet hit the bear’s back and the two went cartwheeling down the road.

The bear rolled over Litz’s head, cracking his helmet, and scratched his back before scampering up a hill above the road.

Litz’s wife drove by shortly after the crash and took her husband to the hospital. He hoped to be able to return to teaching science at Target Range Middle School on Friday.

 

Also, you need to check out this video.  You won’t regret it.  If you’re in a hurry, just fast forward to 1:30 in and enjoy the verse.  Good stuff.

P4180058 On another note, we set 3 mouse traps in our basement last week, and I went down to check them last night, and there were only two!  Still trying to figure out how that happens.  Do you think that there is a mouse walking around my house with a trap stuck on his head?  What if the trap ends up in our living room with a note saying, “More peanut butter or else!” and my Chihuahua is tied up next to it?  Any suggestions.

 

Finally, I know you are all waiting on the edge of your seats to hear the outcome of my first week of fantasy football.

I won 1 and lost 1 in my two leagues, and finished 10 – 6 with my game picks.  Tomorrow I’ll post my Week 2 picks.
