    Well, I thought Pete Prisco had seen the light. He FINALLY put the Pats #1 in the power rankings. It must've been half-hearted, though. I just read the picks for this weeks game at cbssportsline.com and... shock... Prisco picked the Dolphins to win.

    I'm sorry, but if you believe the Pats are truly the best team right now, you wouldn't pick them to lose to the worst in the league. Especially after they've gone into rebuild mode mid-season.

    I really hate that this guy gets paid for his thoughts on sports.

    He actually just picked them to cover, not to win.

    why does everyone get upset at these guys?? They are all the same whether their name is Prisco or Medaperrel. They are the contrary opinion most of the time they dont even believe in what they are saying or writing they just put it out there to be different. Take it with a huge grain of salt

    Prisco picked them because he knows they stole our signals off a tape.

    That's odd. In their little statbox thing in the corner where it shows the picks for the games it has a Dolphins symbol under Prisco's name.

    ?

    As for getting upset, I get upset with media-types all the time. And not just about football. I fully believe reporters should have some clue about what they report about. Call me old fashioned!

    The symbol just states who the think will cover against the spread. Here is what it says at the top.

    I'd say he's doing it just to get under your skin. Has he picked you all year? maybe he is trying reverse psych, really wanting you to go 16-0, and figures he can't lose if he picks against you.

    If prisco gets paid to help bettors make their picks, then he sucks at his job! I don't follow him, but if he has picked against the Pats every game this year vs. the spread, he'd be 0-6 on them.

    Can't fault a guy much for taking the 17 points with Watson and Morris out and Maroney questionable. Plus Miami's run-first offense could slow things down a bit. No way would he pick them to win, I'm sure.

    The P.P.C.C (Peytie's Prisco Colon Cleanser) needs to come up for air.

    Prisco is a bum. Who cares what he thinks? He has been wrong all year!

    Maybe, but he has been the best of the lot picking this year.

    A lot of gurus will take the Fins with that spread. No one will take Miami to win outright.

    Yeah my bad for not reading the whole thing. I guess I owe Prisco an apology. That's a pretty big spread...

    I can still get irked by the guy, though. LOL Maybe that's his job!

    Every year coming into the season when I make my "predictions" on the Pats record I always count the Miami game as a loss!

    With that said I think this year is different!
