A couple of things before the final picks of the 2017 NFL regular season.....
1. Decided to run a thin recording schedule on the football show this week. It's the holidays. I have both kids home with me so I wanted to take full advantage of spending as much time as possible. Plus I visited so much family this week that I am now completely exhausted. But we will be back to a semi normal schedule starting in 2018. We may not necessarily do a show on New Years Day but definitely the day after. We'll figure out those logistics over the weekend. And by we I mean ME!!
2. I typically hate Week 17. Most of the games matter little to none. Now there is obviously a few playoff spots up for grabs and seeding issues to decipher which after this weekend we will know everyone's playoff fate. That said from a better perspective Week 17 is as tough, if not tougher than Week 1 to gamble. But I did my best this week in what I think will go down vs. the spread.
That said. I want to thank all the readers and listeners to all the Earnestly Speaking related podcasts for an very productive 2017. The success of this "empire" begins and ends with YOU! 2018 we are going big. Hope you continue to ride this wave with me cause I am having alot of fan. Hopefully you are too.
Happy New Years my friends!!!
