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

Hawks NFL Picks: Week 9

By Brent “The Hawk” Walker

A week 8 record of 7-7 puts me at 67-52 for the year.
Damn! the regular season is officially half over already. Week 9 here I come.
Team byes: Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks
 Jacksonville Jaguars (2-5) at New York Jets (4-3)
Line: NYJ -9.0
O/U: 40

New York suffered a surprising loss to Oakland last week. A team with one of the best defenses in the NFL got shredded by Derek Carr and company, but what better way to bounce back than to play a home game against the lowly Jaguars?
Pick: Jets

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

Hawk’s 2014 NFL Picks Week 6 Edition

Seahawks take on a red hot Cowboys squad lookin’ to make a statement…

Welcome to The Hawk’s 2014 NFL Picks Week 6 Edition.

Since The Hawk started making his picks in week 2 he has a 35-20 overall record, including a stellar 10-4 mark last week (note that he generally doesn’t pick the Thursday Night games cuz he’s workin’ hard at his two jobs).


The Hawk’s 2014 NFL Quarter Season-ish Power Rankings

Who’s on top?



1. San Diego Chargers (4-1)

Damn! Chargers look dangerous this year. Rivers is on a roll. Their sole loss was opening Monday Night Football, barely against an Arizona team that is tough when healthy. They were healthy in week 1. Not so much now.


2. Seattle Seahawks (3-1)

Really wanted to put the Hawks at 1. but can’t because they lost to the Chargers week 2. Rivers and company took advantage of San Diego’s hot weather that day, and controlled the ball for 43 mins to Seattle’s 17 minutes, but Seattle still had a chance to win the game late.


3. Denver Broncos (3-1)

Denver looks even better this year then the team that won the AFC last year. Peyton will most likely break Favre’s career TD record of 508 in two more games. He is at 503.
