Each week, the Around The League writer with the worst record in picks has to write our introduction. This week, that man is Gregg Rosenthal.

Yes, I had the worst record last week. Every ATL writer now has at least one last-place finish this year. But I remain in first overall for the season and plan to point that out to my colleagues on a daily basis until my obsession with picking Philip Rivers and Cam Newton to win every week finally catches up to me.
