Pigskin Picks - Manning arm fatigue or not, Giants winhttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0031.phphttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0031.phpThe NYGiants are coming off a big loss to Pittsburgh, and QB Eli Manning is battling whispers that he is battling arm fatigue. Toss in a secondary that has not performed up to playoff standards, and this would appear to be a game that has the makings of an upset. However never count Manning out!

In a battle of tough defense vs middling offense, the defense wins! Bears win!

In an attempt to make up some ground, I am going to go off the map somewhat in picking some decided underdogs in Week 8. Fasten your seatbelts! Sun, 28 Oct 2012 09:35:36 -0500Pigskin Picks - Look for RGIII to engineer big upset over Giantshttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0028.phphttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0028.phpThe New York Giants are a great team, no question, and are certainly the better team in the game against the Washington Redskings, in my humble opinion. They have a tendency, however, not to play their best in games in which they are a clear favorite. Look for Robert Griffin III to engineer the big upset. Tue, 06 Aug 2013 07:10:52 -0500Pigskin Picks - Griffin and Redskins will surprise Falcons in high scoring affairhttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0027.phphttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0027.phpRedskin rookie QB Robert Griffin may be even better than Matt Ryan, and supported by the great play of unheralded RB Alfred Morris, the Redskins may be one of the few teams in the league that can keep up to the Falcons in a shootout. In what should be a high scoring affair, look for the Redskins to surprise the Falcons. Sun, 07 Oct 2012 08:58:31 -0500Pigskin Picks: Look for Brees to lead Saints in shootout over Packershttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0026.phphttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0026.phpNew Orleans Saints has started a shocking 0-3, and are obviously missing suspended coach Sean Payton a great deal. The Packers have struggled with pass protection, and although Aaron Rogers should still get his yards through the air, look for Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham and company to finally get their first win of the year in what promises to be a shootout. Sat, 29 Sep 2012 09:02:16 -0500Pigskin Picks - Rams seem poised to take out the Bears, in upset specialhttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0025.phphttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0025.phpWeek 3 action in the NFL will treat fans to yet another battle between the Patriots and Ravens, see the New Orleans Saints return to their winning ways and find the St.Louis Rams pulling off the upset of the week, taking out the Chicago Bears. Sun, 23 Sep 2012 01:36:19 -0500Pigskin Picks - Look for Colts to get some Luck in win over Vikingshttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0024.phphttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0024.phpColts rookie QB Andrew Luck looked like, well, a rookie in Week One, tossing 3 interceptions. He had his moments though, and will be at home this week against a defense that has struggled versus the pass. The Colts will struggle to run vs the Vikings, and will struggle themselves to contain superhuman RB Adrian Peterson, and thus any chance of the Colts moving the ball and winning the game will fall to Luck. Mon, 17 Sep 2012 22:08:43 -0500Pigskin Picks - Look for Forte and Bears to run past Coltshttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0022.phphttp://www.ourhometown.ca/sports/GA0022.phpThe mid-West matchup between the Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts, on paper at least, a sizeable mismatch. The future is now in Chicago, where Bears QB Jay Cutler is re-united with WR Brandon Marshall. Added to the devasting RB combo of Matt Forte and Micheal Bush, the Bears should have their best offense in years.

At this point, there appear to be a lot more questions than there are answers with regards to what the future holds. What happens now to Peyton Manning? Thu, 26 Jan 2012 18:42:33 -0600
