Gonzogeek's Pigskin Picks: WEEK SIXTEEN

WE DID IT! We survived! Between Y2K, last year’s supposed Rapture and the Mayan 2012 Doomsday Prophecy, I’m officially 3-0 against the Apocalypse (Suck it, Armageddon! [but not the Bruce Willis movie about the giant asteroid hurtling toward earth {that movie is the tits!}]). Had the world ended, I would have gone out on top of the Gonzogeek standings! By a mere point(The Titans beating the Jets gave me the one point lead over The Mayor of Parts Unknown [I KNEW picking them every week would eventually pay off!]), I am now in perfect position to win this thing over the next two weeks. I am rocking  of 141 points while Mayor trails at 140. Stephe produced a 13 point week to jump up to 134.5, and Bruce and Chris are having a fierce battle for fourth place (128 to 127, respectively). I find it neat that first and second place are separated by a point as well as fourth and fifth (Stephe is just chillin out in the middle of the pack).

SPOTLIGHT GAME: CINCINNATI BENGALS VS. PITTSBURGH STEELERS

HUNTER: NFL, you weird, bro. The way that the season was moving along this year, never did I think that I’d be picking a spotlight game at the end of the season with the Cincinnati Bengals in it. The boys in black and orange have been plagued by dropped passes all season long, but they’ve become a more consistent team over the last few weeks. The boys in black and yellow (black and yellow black and yellow black and yellow) have just been  of inconsistent this season. It’s too late in the season for the roller coaster. PICK: BENGALS

BRUCE: PICK: BENGALS

STEPHE: PICK: STEELERS

CHRIS: Cincinnativs. Pittsburgh: The only thing Pittsburgh has going for them is Steeler mojo. The Bengals have more momentum. They have a better running game, and better receiving corp, and a quarterback who currently has his shit together. Oh yeah,and a defense that’s quickly evolving into one of the better units in the league. Mojo won’t be enough. PICK: BENGALS

MAYOR: I almost didn't make the deadline this week. You can imagine how hectic life can be here in Parts Unknown on a daily basis -- but to have the end of the world predicted, and that said apocalypse coming DURING our annual Snowflakes and Steel Chairs Festival? Aye caramba! I'm told this week's spotlight game pits the Bengals against the Steelers. I know nothing about the Bengals and very little about the Steelers -- other than you don't want to let Big Ben buy your gal pal drinks (BA DUM BUM!). The Mascot Evaluation System indicates the Bengals prevail in a mild upset. PICK: BENGALS by clawing
