Eagle Football Picks

Gordon Larson, Guest Picker

I'm not sure whether this week's games were too easy, but we had quite a number of our 40 total pickers turn in cards with big numbers on them.

Seven finished at 13-2, 11 checked in at 12-3 and 13 more finished 11-4.

However, the big winner was Kelley Basey, who finished 14-1, with only the Minnesota Vikings loss to the NY Giants preventing a perfect score.

Guest pickers Gary Moulton, Justin Wright, Yazzie Voigt and Evan Fast from the Prairie City football team, finished with a 12-3 record, as did Sports Editor Tim Adams and Graphic Designer Sierra Stafford from the Blue Mountain Eagle. Detroit, Minnesota and Indianapolis let all of us down by losing games to opponents they should have beaten.

Stafford's fine showing tied her with Editorial Assistant Marissa Allen for third place with an 81-39 season record.

Detroit saw its four-game road winning streak, (after losing 28-straight away from the Motor City), snapped by the Cowboys, the Giants handed the Vikings their heads at the Metrodome and what happened to Indianapolis? Either the Chiefs have suddenly and dramatically improved, or the Colts need to regroup and figure a few things out.

Allen and Service Rep. Diane Reimers both had a good week finishing 10-5, and Advertising Rep. Debbie Morgan came in at 8-7.
