My home team has taken to disappointing me week in and week out. The worst part about the situation in the NFC North (a scant 2 weeks after I boldly declared that the Pack would prevail in the end) is that the Vikings are the team in the lead. Two major problems here: (1) the Packers have no games remaining against the Vikings (so they have to count on other teams to help them catch up), and (2) it’s the goddamned Vikings. Man, I hate that team. A lot.
It’s going to be tough for me to pick a post-season horse if Green Bay craps out. One of our division rivals? Please. A team from the powerhouse NFC South? Too easy. The Fish? That would be like admitting Lorch was right about something. Brett and the Jets? At least death by INT would feel familiar…
Anyway, “have at thee!” for Week 14.
