Greg Cote’s Week 7 NFL picks

Finally figured out my purpose in life. It is apparently to raise the self-esteem of others by doing so poorly on my NFL predictions that readers making their own picks at home may say, “Looky here. I know more about football than this so-called expert. I won’t kill myself, after all. Thank you, Mr. Cote. You saved my life!” Last week actually was a step up for me, which tells you how far the nadir of my recent slump had sunk. I called the Steelers upset at Jets, and rightly had ’dog Bills, Jaguars and Titans with the points. I see this as the start of a massive resurgence. I only hope the reader will forgive me. [Note: Thursday-game pick was Seahawks (-6 1/2) over Cardinals, 24-13].
