Season Finale: BTL Packers Podcast 3.9

We are back for the final edition of season three of the BTL Packers Podcast. The Packers magical run over the last two months finally ran out of gas but we sure as hell did not run out of opinions on the Packers last stand in the NFCCG.

In this episode the whole crew discusses the following:

  • Sum up the Packers effort in the NFCCG in one word/phrase.
  • Who is to blame for the NFCCG loss?
  • One phrase that sums up the 2016 Packers season.
  • Jordy Nelson’s effort in the last game.
  • NFL Draft 2017/Free Agency
  • Closing Thoughts

 

 

I hope you enjoyed season three of the BTL Packers Podcast. It was a rollercoaster ride and we hope to achieve the greenest of pastures next year.

For now, farewell, and we will see you for season four of The BTL Packers Podcast, look for us around draft time!

Week 11 – Thursday Night Football Pick

This is Carolina’s last stand if they have any hope of making the playoffs. After blowing the Chiefs game last week, the Panthers have a short turn around with the Saints, another team that lost in dramatic fashion in Week 10.

I like the Saints to perform well on the road Thursday as they have all year. Through 10 weeks of the NFL season, I trust the weapons of Brees and company to mount serious offensive pressure that I don’t think the Panthers will be able to hang with blow for blow.

Cam Newton and his Panthers continue the trend of the Super Bowl loser under-performing the following year and also missing the playoffs. The Saints creep back to .500 and send the Panthers packing for 2016.

Saints +3.5 over PANTHERS

BTL Week 10 NFL Picks

Went 7-5 versus the spread last week. Had some hits, had some misses that I didn’t see coming. But ever so slowly I’m inching closer to the right side of above 50%.

I’m going to keep this week’s pick’s post short. There was a lot that went on this past week that was bigger than football and I myself found myself less concerned with the NFL, fantasy football and making picks against the spread than paying attention the bigger issues. So in the spirit of conciseness. On to the picks.

Last Week: 7-5 / To Date: 69-75

Packers -2.5 over TITANS

REDSKINS -1.5 over Vikings

BUCCANEERS +2.5 over Bears

PANTHERS -3 over Chiefs

EAGLES over Falcons

JETS over Rams

SAINTS -3 over Broncos

JAGUARS -2.5 over Texans

CHARGERS -4 over Dolphins

STEELERS -3 over Cowboys

Niners +14 over CARDINALS

PATRIOTS -7.5 over Seahawks

GIANTS +1 over Bengals
