So I set the ground rules last week: The writer with the worst record from the previous week has to write the introduction to our picks column. I didn't expect to be the one writing it.
My 7-9 record from Week 1 might look like a typical Pete Carroll season to you, but it looks heroic to me. Marc Sessler and Dan Hanzus had a competition to see who could come up with the more boring picks. It paid off. In the biggest upset of all, there were barely any upsets in Week 1.
