NFL Picks: Week Five
When I decided to go ahead with a weekly NFL Picks column, I thought it would be a good way to show off my football insight. Unfortunately, it's been the complete opposite. Currently, I'm 10th out of 12 in my Pick 'Em league, with 288 out of a possible 483. Not good.

So, I'm deciding to change this up a bit. I'm still going to go ahead with my picks, although I'm going to give my reasons for them in haiku form. A friend of mine did this for our fantasy baseball league, so I thought it'd I steal his idea and use it for my picks.

Hopefully this works.
