Football: Is it over?
With the bowl games just starting and the NFL wrapping up the regular season this weekend, it is pretty easy to feel overwhelmed. Or perhaps just not care anymore.
The Chargers lost to Kansas City last weekend in the rain and mud. I was in Cabo in the sand and the sun and didn't watch except a bit of the scores. The loss officially eliminated them from the playoffs; but in reality, the loss at home to Miami was the end of their legitimate shot at a playoff spot. Perhaps they should lose to Denver to get a 3rd place schedule for next year to make the road to the playoffs easier. They certainly made the road to a new stadium harder by not getting into the postseason.
My picks were 8/16 this week. Dreadful. Lots of upsets though and the best expert at fantasysports.yahoo.com was 10/16. OK. I don't feel so bad.
Happy New Year.
