Week 9 NFL Picks Against a 7 Year Old

Same ole, same ole.  JDaddy has had an NFL awakening.  Another stellar week and he expands his lead.  With only 13 games on the schedule this week it will be hard for the rest of us to put a dent into our deficits.  We just have to hope JDaddy slows down his pace.

JDaddy: 10-5
CDog: 9-6
Uncle J: 6-9
7-Year-Old: 5-10

Overall Results
JDaddy: 71-48-2

Week 8 NFL Picks Against a 7 Year Old

JDaddy is on the verge of building a commanding lead.  He was the only one to pick more right than wrong last week.  Right now it looks like the only drama is going to be the fight for second place.  It's still early, and much like the Cowboys, lets don't start crowning anyone just yet.

Also, if you are interested in joining us for the JDRF One Walk, the walk is less than 3 weeks away!  Here is information on how to join the effort.

Week 7 Results
JDaddy: 9-6
CDog: 7-8
7-Year-Old: 7-8
Uncle J: 6-9

Overall Results
JDaddy: 61-43-2
Uncle J: 53-51-2
CDog: 51-53-2
7-Year-Old: 48-56-2

Week 6 NFL Picks Against a 7 Year Old

Just when I think we couldn't be any dumber, we go and do something like this.

And TOTALLY redeem ourselves!  Yeah!

After a few weeks of up and down picks, all 4 of us had a great week.  CDog led the way in Week 5, but JDaddy still is out front for the whole season.  Only one of us has a losing record on the season.  Poor kid.

CDog: 11-4
Uncle J: 10-5
JDaddy: 9-6
7-Year-Old: 9-6

Overall Results
JDaddy: 41-33-2

Week 5 NFL Picks Against a 7 Year Old

Just when JDaddy was getting settled into the driver's seat, here comes Uncle J grabbing at the steering wheel.  That is two wins this season for the Corpus Christi Crooner, and he has his eyes set on first place overall.  His Cowboys devotion is starting to pay off.

The kid meanwhile is having a rough go of it.  First grade stress is throwing him off.

By the way, if you haven't seen this post about the kid, check it out.

Week 4 Results
Uncle J: 8-4-1
CDog: 6-6-1
JDaddy: 5-7-1

JDRF and Eli's Encouragers

Each week we make our NFL picks against a 7-year-old kid.  We have been doing this since he was a 4-year-old (he won that year by the way), and while you know that he is a better gambler that us, something you may not know is that when he was 2 years old he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes is currently an incurable disease that requires multiple finger pricks and insulin injections in order to survive.  Great strides are being made in the treatments for T1D, but there is still no cure.  But we hope to change that, which is why each year we participate in the JDRF One Walk in Fort Worth.

Eli's Encouragers have been astoundingly supportive and generous, raising over $25,000 over the last 4 years, with over 250 walkers showing up on walk day.  Last year we had 100 walkers.

If you would like to become one of Eli's Encouragers, it is very simple.  We have a blog with all of the details about the walk and the spaghetti dinner we are having on October 11.  We also have a Facebook page and Twitter account.  We'd love for you (or your company if you're so inclined) to become part of our team!
