NFL Week Five: Staff Picks

The Bolts from the Blue staff is hoping to continue picking better than three out of four games correctly as they did in Week 4.

Well, that was a crazy, crazy week. Nobody on staff picked worse than 60% of the winners. Dana, the Reverse Oracle, actually picked the first 13 games of week four correctly. Ultimately the Giants and Cowboys let her down in her bid for a perfect week. Maybe it is too soon to write her off in this competition. She's still rocking the lowest percentage of the staff, but she's tied with AvengingJM now.

It was also a strong outing for our Fearless Leader, John. He still has the most losses on his ledger of any member of the staff, but Orz, jkvandal and Superduperboltman are all within three losses of him now.

Focusing on the actual race for first place, Jeff has maintained his two game lead over me because I can't bring myself to pick the Chargers when they play on the road even against bad teams. Am I mistaken to hold to that plan this week? Probably. I'm always wrong on these picks. Don't listen to me. Listen to the Reverse Oracle as apparently she's unstoppable now.
