Hawk’s 2016 NFL Picks: Week 1

Picking winners in week 1 is a crap shoot. You just never know what good teams from last year will fall apart this and what bad team will step it up and become playoff contenders. But I am committed again this year so let’s get right to it.
Green Bay Packers at Jacksonville Jaguars
(+4.5) (O/U 48.0)
Everyone always like picking the Packers. They have a high powered offense with Aaron Rodgers, and Jordy Nelson is back after missing all of last season.
But you know who else has a high powered offense? This Jaguars team. Blake Bortles threw for 4428 yards and 35 TD’s last year. Mainly to his two elite receivers Allen Robinson (1,400 yards, 14 Td’s) and Allen Hurns, ( 1,031 yards, 10 Tds) their defense needs work but they can keep up with the Packers high paced offense.
Pick: Jaguars

Hawk’s 2015 NFL Preview: Seattle Seahawks

Seattle Seahawks
After pulling off perhaps the greatest comeback in NFL history in the NFC Championship against the Packers, Seattle was just one yard short of becoming a Super Bowl Champion for the second consecutive year in 2014. Some of my earliest memories are of  watching the Seahawks with my dad, and I must say I never in a million years could imagine that the outcome of sports game could hurt as bad as that did. I’m pretty sure I was clinically depressed for quite some afterwords. Luckily this video would cheer me up when I was feeling especially down.
It was one of the greatest Super Bowls ever played, and I hope I never see it again. I feel my heart breaking just talking about it again, but the show must go on, the quest for redemption for players, coaches, and fans starts now.

Hawk’s NFL Picks: Week 6

It was an exciting week 5 of football as we had a lot of close games. 10 of the 14 games were won by 7 points or less, and two went into overtime. Managed a 9-5 record to put me at 43-34, and just like that here comes week 6:

Team byes: Dallas Cowboys, Oakland Raiders, St, Louis Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

 Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars
Once again my rule is in effect, when two shitty teams face off, go for the home team. I need a name for this. I also think Jacksonville is going to start turning the corner a little bit as their offense really clicked last week in Tampa Bay. Blake Bortles threw for 303 yards and 4 TD’s.
Pick: Jaguars

Marshawn Lynch Rips the Media


Marshawn Lynch has made headlines all season because of his one sentence answers to media questions.  On Super Bowl Media Day last Tuesday he answered every question with “I’m just here so I won’t get fined.

Today he spoke at last, essentially giving  a monologue about how he feels about the circus that is media day. Here it is in full:
