NFL Week Eight: Staff Picks

Thomas B. Shea

The entire Bolts From The Blue staff is over .500 now and they're hoping to stay that way in Week Eight.

The Bolts From The Blue staff certainly bounced back from Week Six. Following a week where none of us were better than .500, nobody was worse than 53% in Week Seven. Superduperboltman had the best week of the year missing on only one out of 13 games. Damn those Buffalo Bills. All of us believed in them and they went out and lost to the Titans. To the Titans!

It was still a great week, though. Even the Reverse Oracle herself is now over .500 for the year at 45-43. Sure, that's still last place, but it is better than a coin flip, so she has that going for her. Jeff is once again alone in first place having recovered from his "all away team" week. Unfortunately, he didn't submit his picks on time again and so will need to count on the road teams again this time.

I'm still living off a couple of good early weeks, but am the only other member of the staff hitting better than 60% of his picks. Hopefully I manage not to lose ground to Jeff in a week where he didn't even make picks.

Let us know who you have winning this week and why in the comments.
