It was a strong Week 1 for a whole bunch of pickers. Chris Fink led the way with an outstanding 13-3 record, while five people put up records of 12-4, and 12 others went 11-5. That’s the best start I can recall in all the years of doing this.

Very happy to see a few of my family members among the 60-plus pickers this year. My nephew Vincent Henecker and cousins Mike and Mark Maglio have joined the fray. Of course, they’re all HUGE Giants’ fans, too!

Speaking of Big Blue, not the start we were hoping for, but no need to panic. The Cowgirls have a decent team, and as long as we split with them, no harm, no foul. The Jints do need to do something about their secondary or it’s going to be a long season. Hopefully we’ll get some of our corners healthy soon.

I won’t matter this week with the Bucs coming to town, and The Super Bowl Champion New York Football Giants will come out with a W. I’m taking the Bills over Kansas City this week, but I don’t know why. They were horrible last week. I don’t think they can really be that bad, but if they put up another stinker this week, I’m never going to pick them again, and I’m going to push hard to convert young Dan Alexander III into a Giants’ fan while there’s still time. New Orleans/Carolina, Baltimore/Philly, and Pittsburgh/Jets all are games that should be close and fun to watch. I’ve got the Saints, Steelers and Ravens in those match-ups.
