    You have to like it when they ‘go inside the numbers’. Don’t know what the hell it means but I like it.

    Not sure I like Handle’s pick this week but thanks for the support….I think…

    MINNESOTA –1½ over Chicago

    Bear were in the thick of things until injuries decimated star players and things went downhill from there. Viking never got up the hill but that allowed them to look at some young players, including QB Joe Webb who is exciting to watch and could be the difference maker in this one. For Bear team that looked like a lock to make the playoffs five weeks ago and that were officially eliminated last week, this one figures to be tough to get up for.

    Play: Minnesota –1½

    Detroit –3½ over GREEN BAY

    Aaron Rodgers said it best, “This was a good win for us to get back on the right track and get the No. 1 seed. Now that we have the top seed locked up, I think the priorities may shift a little.” While it’s never that easy, Lion have plenty at stake to motivate them for this one. A Detroit win has them heading to the winner of Cowboy/Giant. A loss has them visiting the Saint. Do the math. They were whacked by New Orleans once in prime time and that was in Detroit. In other words, Detroit has plenty at stake here while the Packer have nothing to gain and everything to lose should they play to win. This one is yummy.

    Play: Detroit –3½

    If Handle’s bonus picks come through Vike would likely pick fifth.

    Indianapolis +3½ over JACKSONVILLE

    Had the Colt truly cared about getting first pick in the upcoming draft, they would have allowed Curtis Painter to continue at quarterback. They didn’t and they’ve won consecutive games. Jaguar are at par with Indianapolis and cannot be trusted to win, let alone by a margin.
    Play: Indianapolis +3½

    San Francisco –10½ over ST. LOUIS

    Ram are just 60 minutes away from ending this nightmarish season but they’ll have to pay a price before doing so. Niner need this game and with their rugged style and St. Louis’ fragile state a decisive win is to be expected. Ram have scored just 26 points over past four weeks.
    Play: San Francisco –10½
