Week 16 NFL Picks Against a 6-Year-Old

After last week's Cowboys debacle I had decided to write my feelings on how the team has turned someone like me, who cares too much for my teams, into an apathetic fan who shrugs his shoulders, smirks at the ridiculousness of it, and goes on about my day whenever the team loses.  And it's not just losses.  I've gotten to where I don't care all that much about wins.  Cool, the Cowboys won, now what are we doing for dinner around here?  That's what a .500 team for the last 18 years turns their fans into.  I can't imagine I'm alone in this.  There used to be a time where you could feel a difference in the air after a Cowboys loss.  Not anymore.  As a fan of one of the two most prestigious American professional teams, it's sad at how mediocre the Cowboys have become. 

But that paragraph is all I can get out right now.  I still need to gather my thoughts on the subject so I don't sound like I'm rambling.  Quite frankly, I can't even find enough passion in the team to even work up the energy to write a post.  It's not like anything is going to change.  We're being held hostage by a front office that refuses to improve itself. 

So I'll give them the last two games to see if anything changes.  I'm guessing not.  There's no excuse to lose to Washington, but they'll probably lose to the Eagles.  And that will make three straight 8-8 seasons.  No better definition of mediocre than that.

Speaking of mediocre, the adults in this league can barely reach that threshold.  The kid expanded his lead this week.  He and JDaddy picked a different team in 8 games this week.  JDaddy needs to make those count.

Merry Christmas!
