Accountability, Shame and Wealth: A Review of My 2010 NFL Predictions
You can say I botched my 2010 NFL prognostications. But you can't say I ran and hid from my errors.
There's hope for me surviving this thing, as I have Big Ten Buffoonery dough coming in, tonight's Megamillions jackpot is up to $330 million and I actually sneaked by with a profit because of Dez Bryant. I picked seven of 12 playoff teams in each conference but who am I kidding, this was a costly season in reputation if not rubles.
A review of the picks I made way back on September 8 ...
AFC EAST: Jets (Patriots)
AFC NORTH: Bengals (Steelers)
AFC SOUTH: Colts (Colts)
AFC WEST: Chargers (Chiefs)
AFC WILD CARDS: Ravens, Patriots (Ravens, Jets)
NFC EAST: Cowboys (Eagles)
NFC NORTH: Packers (Bears)
NFC SOUTH: Falcons (Falcons)
NFC WEST: Cardinals (Seahawks)
NFC WILD CARDS: Saints, 49ers (Saints, Packers)
SUPER BOWL: Colts over Cowboys

Again, thank you Dez. The next $55,000 dinner is on me.
