NFL Office Pool Picks Week 13
by T.O. Whenham - 11/29/2011
I don’t know about you, but I have found this to be a frustrating season for my NFL office pool picks. A couple of weeks have been really bad, but most have just been solid. What I have lacked, though, is a truly impressive breakthrough week.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 12
by T.O. Whenham - 11/22/2011
This is where things get interesting. The bye weeks are over, there are six games left for each team, and this is where we separate the men form the boys in the NFL. We have a pretty good idea of what teams are all about by now, and those will be tested under fire from now to the end of the year.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 11
by T.O. Whenham - 11/15/2011
After a week with a full slate of games on the NFL schedule last week we return one last time to a limited slate thanks to bye weeks for the last four squads. Mercifully that means that the Colts definitely can’t lose this week. It also means that the Texans have two weeks to figure out what they are going to do without Matt Schaub.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 10
by T.O. Whenham - 11/8/2011
We will reach two minor milestones this week in the NFL — the first week of full action since the start of the bye weeks in Week 5, and the first Thursday night game since the Saints visited the Packers to open the season back at the beginning of September. At the risk of jinxing myself it seems like the league is starting to make a lot more sense now than it was at the start of the season.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 9
by T.O. Whenham - 11/1/2011
We bounced back nicely last week from a really lousy week before that. Let’s keep the upward arc going with even better results this week for our NFL office pool picks. To help you decide which teams to back in your NFL office pools, here’s a look at who I think will be the straight up winner in each of the 14 games to be played this week:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 8
by T.O. Whenham - 10/25/2011
I just finished watching Jacksonville beat the Ravens on “Monday Night Football”. That’s all the proof you need that anything can happen in the NFL. Some weeks are better just forgotten, and last week was one of those. It’s a new week now, though, so without further ado here are my NFL office pool picks for the coming week of NFL action:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 7
by T.O. Whenham - 10/18/2011
It was a solid week last week. Not one to write home about, but far from a disaster. There were some results that could have verged on the unexpected — the San Francisco upset at Detroit, Philadelphia remembering that they could play, and Tampa Bay’s excellent bounce back among them — but nothing that was totally out of left field. The coming week’s NFL schedule has a few more potential traps than last week, but it is reasonably manageable. Here’s how I see the week playing out with my NFL office pool picks:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 6
by T.O. Whenham - 10/11/2011
It’s time for another week’s worth of straight up NFL office pool picks. Last week was fine, but far from overwhelming -- there were some surprises like there are so often in the NFL. This week we will look to do better, and it feels like we have a reasonably straightforward card to choose from here.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 5
by T.O. Whenham - 10/4/2011
Last week was just the kind that I hope for each week, and a very useful one for office pools. It wasn’t 16-0, but it was almost the next best thing. There were 13 wins, and two teams I didn’t pick — San Francisco and Cincinnati — weren’t teams that most people would have picked, either. There’s nothing wrong with getting one wrong if few people get it right.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 4
by T.O. Whenham - 9/27/2011
It was a bit of a strange week last week, but we managed to weather it acceptably well. It wasn’t a great week, but it certainly could have been worse. The good news is that some of the games we got wrong for our NFL office pool picks are ones that few people would have called correctly — Buffalo over New England being the most obvious example. Another week, another set of picks for your office pool:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 3
by T.O. Whenham - 9/20/2011
That’s more like it! After a totally forgettable opening week last week was far more successful in terms of picking winners. The games made sense when I looked at them at the start of the week, and for the most part they turned out like expected. Even the NFL office pool picks that didn’t turn out right were mostly close. Now let’s carry the momentum forward to this week. All games are picked straight up, not against the NFL point spreads.
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 2
by T.O. Whenham - 9/13/2011
That opening weekend was one I would like to forget in my office pool, and I’m sure that that is the same for a lot of people. The list of disappointing teams is long — Denver, Dallas, Seattle, the Giants, Cleveland, Kansas City, Tampa Bay, and the mystifying Falcons and Steelers. I’m just going to pretend that none of that happen and start fresh this week. Here’s my list of NFL office pool picks for this week’s games — remember, these are all picked straight up, not against the NFL point spread:
NFL Office Pool Picks Week 1
by T.O. Whenham - 9/5/2011
It’s NFL time again. Hallelujah! Early each week during the NFL season I’ll be offering my guidance and advice for all of you who are participating in the most American of workplace activities — the NFL Office Pool. I’ll look at every game of each week and pick a winner. These NFL office pool picks will all be straight up, so tge point spread won’t be considered. Good luck, and here’s to a great season:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 17
by T.O. Whenham - 12/29/2010
We’ve made it -- the end of the line for the regular season. Our NFL office pool picks this year have had their ups and their downs. We’re going to head into the playoffs on a big upswing, though -- even though I hate pretty much everything about this last week of the season:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 16
by T.O. Whenham - 12/21/2010
Last week wasn’t quite as strong as recent weeks, but at 9-7 at least it was above .500. The way things were going for a while in the early games I didn’t think that was going to be the case. This week we’ll look to give a Christmas present to ourselves by putting together a huge week of NFL office pool picks.
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 14
by T.O. Whenham - 12/14/2010
Last week was reasonably successful, though in two cases we learned hard lessons about just how important quarterbacks are - I certainly didn’t have Detroit beating Green Bay, and at the time of making those picks I didn’t think to weigh the chances that Matt Cassel’s appendix would give out on him before I picked the Chiefs in a mild upset that really didn’t materialize.
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 14
by T.O. Whenham - 12/7/2010
It was another solid week last week - and I feel quite relieved that I never really bought into the Jets this year. Ouch. A beat down like that is inevitable when you play against a QB that played at Michigan. We’re into the final quarter of the season, so it’s time to finish up strong. Here’s how I see this week breaking down for my NFL office pool picks:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 13
by T.O. Whenham - 11/30/2010
I had the best week of the year - by far - last week, and then I matched it again this week. I guess all I needed to do was wait for the bye weeks to end - and any chance of winning any office pool to disintegrate - before I finally started to figure things out. Just going for weekly prizes, I guess. Here are this week’s straight up NFL office pool picks:
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 12
by T.O. Whenham - 11/24/2010
Hallelujah! We finally had a good week - a week where things made sense in the NFL. In other words, after a couple of rough weeks we finally significantly outperformed throwing darts at a dart board as a method deciding who to pick in with our NFL office pool picks.
NFL Office Pool Picks - Week 11
by T.O. Whenham - 11/16/2010
The only thing I am going to do with last week’s NFL office pool picks is pretend that they never happened. That’s the case for most of this year, really. Things will be better this week now that we don’t have to deal with bye weeks. That’s the theory, anyway:
