You don't leave the table when you're on a heater. Unfortunately for me, even after bringing shame upon myself and my family, I can't stay away from making my NFL picks against the spread.
Helping me get over the depression is the intro to Peter King's MMQB: "I mean, we're six weeks into the season and who really knows anything?"
At least I'm not the only one. Perhaps there's hope yet.
Maybe, instead of the Arian Foster-type running back I tried to compare myself to last week, I'm more of a Barry Sanders. Instead of plugging away near the line of scrimmage, I have to lose about five yards and then bust one for 80 yards.
Either that, or I'm delusional.
But hey, we all have to hit rock bottom before we can make it to the top. So, after my worst week during my worst season seems to be the right time to start the heater.
Last Week's Record: 5-9
Current Record: 39-50-2
