Dudes not better than Da Bears

It sure has been a wild season in the NFL, but that probably pales in comparison to the ups and downs we’ve experienced here at Joboo.  We started off by offering you Lance’s Stone Cold Locks of the Week, and despite the bravado cold was the only adjective that accurately described Lance’s ability to correctly predict NFL winners.  I would like to say that we were all a little broken up by Lance ending his tenure as pickmaster, but to be honest it saved us from having to apologize for how bad the picks were.  Then we moved on to letting the Champ in addition to his Bold Predictions starting flexing his NFL picking muscle.  Predictably, those NFL picks turned out about as well as the Detroit Tigers World Series experience. We even went as far as to let my girlfriend THROW HATCHETS in an attempt to bring you accurate NFL picks. However the regular season ended without a clear choice for who should be making picks for us.

Joboo Co-founder Doug even took a stab at making picks in the playoffs, and quickly went 0-4 bookending the shortest tenure of NFL predictions thus far on the website.  I’ve somehow managed to stay sane enough to avoid publicly making predictions, aside from my correct call in the NFC Championship game, and if I were smarter than I am I would retire 1-0. (Forgetting of course my preseason NFL predictions that may best be described as “putrid”) But really, what are the chances of THAT happening. Read More

    I should probably start out by saying that while a rabid Bears fan, I for one was never talking that 16-0 noise.  Of course I’ve wondered aloud about how cool it would be to stop hearing stories about some Dolphin’s team with Bob Griese at quarterback and even hypothesized about it being possible if they could just make it out of Gillette Stadium alive.  Luckily, the Dolphins ended any of that silly discussion that was even infecting the major media.  On the flip side of that, I realize the Bears lost to the Dolphins, but suddenly they are terrible?  Come on, even great teams lose games they probably shouldn’t, so expecting merely a good Bears team to not stumble is ridiculous.  So what are we left with after their victory in the Meadowlands on Sunday night?  Read More

Wow, how could we go through a weekend without talking about this one? St. Louis first, Detroit, second. We had to get around to mentioning it at some point, right? Inevitable, and the like. Well, it can not be said enough. Congrats, St. Louis.

Hey, St. Louis, Congrats, you deserve this Championship. You’ve worked very hard, and as much as I’m not a fan of some of the folks you’ve got putting together this Title run, I think I can get over that and appreciate the victory that you’ve compiled here. Party like it’s, well, party like you party in St. Louis. Have pride in all of your accomplishments, St. Louis. I don’t know what number title this is, but, I’m sure Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa knows. And hey, I’m sure he’s popping the bubbly personally after a Championship like this.

Congrats again, St. Louis…

2006’s most dangerous city. Yes, St. Louis, you managed to wrest that title out of the cold, near-dead, hands of Camden, New Jersey. While the folks of Camden are likely dissapointed to not three-peat with this honor, you really need to hand it to St. Louis. Take nothing away from them on this one. Violent crime up 20%? That’s getting it done.

And the hell with the Cardinals, too, because there’s a damn good chance they’re getting the business end of a shotgun at some point in the next year. Again, congrats St. Louis, this is your day. Your week, even. Celebrate!
