Happy Halloween, all! I'm going trick-or-treating dressed up as a guy having a good season on his NFL picks. There's an echo in here as we delve into Week 9. Went 11-4 straight up and 9-6 against the spread for the second week in a row. No complaints. Bull's-eyed another Upset of the Week pick with Steelers over Colts ("Aawwk!"), making us 6-2 outright and 7-1 vs. spread on Bird calls. Also had a pair of 'dogs-with-points in Falcons and Panthers. Stay, momentum. I love you. Be mine! (Note: Thursday-game pick was Saints (-21/2) over Panthers, 27-20).
