Super Bowl Picks: Giants-Patriots Battle in an Epic Rematch

I’m sure people from New York and Boston don’t need to be reminded, but, in one of the greatest Super Bowls ever, the Giants knocked off the Patriots in January of ’08. Fast forward four seasons and the rematch looks completely different. While it does feature the same two teams, this isn’t the 16-0 Patriots […]

NFL Picks: Championship Weekend

What we learned last weekend: Not all 32 points are created the same. Did anyone else watch the 49ers-Saints game and come away utterly impressed with a defense that just gave up 32 points? I know I did. The Giants are so good, they demolished the Packers despite countless calls going against them. The Patriots […]

NFL Playoffs Picks: A Repeat of the Giants ’07 Magic?

It’s on to the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs, with for more games on the slate. As usual, picks below are in bold. New Orleans @ San Francisco I must be crazy, or I must have something against them, but I’m picking the Saints to lose two weeks in a row. I do actually […]

NFL Picks: Wildcard Weekend

Cincinnati @ Houston Somehow the Texans will ride Arian Foster and his new hair to victory over the inexperienced Bengals. This would be a matchup of the two worst playoff teams if you know, a team in Denver didn’t make the playoffs with some divine help. The Bengals have only beaten one team with a […]

Giants Handle the Cowboys and Win NFC East

I had the unique privilege of watching the Giants in a room full of Giant fans. Unlike most people I suppose, I watch most of my football games on my own couch, by myself. There are certain games that are sporting events, this happened to be one of them. There hasn’t been this big of a football […]

Week 17 NFL Picks: Cowboys-Giants, Winner Takes All

Lions @ Packers I don’t expect the Packers to play their starters very long, especially since key players have been getting injured in the last couple of weeks. Could the Packers beat the Lions anyway? Maybe. I wouldn’t bet on it though. If the offense plays as well as it did against the Chargers, the Lions will […]

Devils Weekly: Devils Lose to the Rangers

The Rivalry Rangers-Devils tends to bring out the nastiness in people. We witnessed two fights in less than two minutes; one three seconds into the hockey game. As for the game itself, it was one of the more physical games the Devils have played all year. The Devils really played well enough to at least earn a […]

Week 16 NFL Picks: Giants or Jets?

The regular season is winding down. With Christmas on Sunday, games are pushed up to Saturday afternoon. Enjoy your football, and happy holidays from the SoNY family! As always, picks are in bold. Houston @ Indianapolis Good for the Colts to get a win, as no one deserves to go winless. Now that the talk […]

Devils Weekly: Niedermayer Honored, Elias Reaches Milestone, Parise Dominates

Highlights of the Week: Scott Niedermayer’s #27 was retired Friday night in a terrific ceremony that even brought back Mike “Doc” Emerick back to New Jersey. Patrik Elias is now the all-time leading goal scorer in Devils history, with 378, passing John McLean. Someone day, whenever Patrik decides to hang up his skates, his number […]

Week 15 NFL Picks: Can the Colts Finally Pick Up a W?

There’s nothing quite like December football. Let’s get straight into the picks, as always picks in bold. Jacksonville @ Atlanta The Falcons are well on their way to the fifth seed in the NFC and the Jags are well on their way to finding a new home. Dallas @ Tampa Bay The way Tampa has […]
