Hello, week eleven! You’re looking mighty fine, a smorgasboard of interesting matchups as we head into the long holiday weekend next week. And hello, dear reader, and welcome to Aaron It Out.
The 2017 NFL Season is officially halfway over, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Football (particularly, NFL football) is my absolute favorite sport, and I cannot believe that it is already halfway done. There have been many highlights, and some lowlights. This season has been amazing for a variety of reasons. Time to take a closer look at the overall NFL at the midway point in this week’s Aaron It Out.
Good morning, everyone and happy game day. I’ve decided that I can’t get this written towards the end of the week and have it up in time for you to enjoy it. So, instead of using Bovada odds and waiting until Wednesday, I will be using earlier lines to write this preview. Ideally, I would get this up Thursday, but that’s when Aaron runs his NFL column and I don’t want to move it. Instead, like any good delegator, I will delegate blame to Aaron for disrupting the flow of college football goodness from the blog. Thanks a lot, Aaron!
Let’s Bet the Board!
Hello! You thought you had already muddled through me for another week, didn’t you? Don’t worry, I just a quick note on the big news coming out of two of the teams in the AFC South yesterday.
The trade deadline brought more drama to it than the games that preceded it, with many big-time moves coming and keeping the NFL news cycle churning. I personally thought it was great, and want to dive deep into some analysis. Welcome to Aaron It Out for Week 9.
Welp. That went about how I expected. Georgia -14 was the easiest spread I’ve picked this season. Holy moly. Let’s get right to it. This week we see the first playoff rankings. That means we get to dial up the bitching about how so-and-so “ain’t played nobody, Paul!” The option this week will be breaking down Florida. Fair warning. I’ll be following up with a rankings post later in the week.
Normally, I enjoy starting here with a bit of news from around the NFL, and I’ll throw in some “quick hits” before we get to the Top Five, but it’s the Jaguars’ bye week, and it’s time for my first truly in-depth column on the Jaguars this season. Welcome to Aaron It Out, Week 8.
Apologies to all, I have had several developments of the non-blog kind come up in the past few weeks, and they have taken precedence over keeping the weekly articles rolling. Special thanks to Aaron for being the consummate professional and keeping up the weekly NFL write-up. Maybe the managing editor can take a card or two from that deck. Anyway. I suck. I’ll try harder. Let’s Bet the Board. Continue reading “Bet the Board: Week 7”
Welcome back, Teddy. It’s been a long, long road and it’s good to see you on the practice field again. And welcome, readers, to week 7 of Aaron It Out.
