Put Up Or Shut Up: Paddy’s NFL Picks


I’ve put it off. I’ve stalled. I’ve let all the staff members go on the record with their picks.

I can wait no longer.

The NFL season starts today and I have to go on the record so that come this time next year, you can all ridicule me about how off the mark I was. For instance, last year I picked the Titans to win the Super Bowl.
