While the articles may have taken an extended bye week, the Geeks of Gridiron team has been in full battle royale mode. The leaders after the first two weeks decided falling flat on their faces was a great idea, while proverbial stepping stones have made their way towards the top of the leaderboard. Here’s a week by week review of what has happened since the last article was written.

Week 3 Review
In week 3 the Buzz-Saw outshined everybody else by going 14-2, sawing off the legs of the reigning champ in the process. The champ is feared no longer as Mischievious went an abysmal 9-7, good enough for last place in week 3. The Howitzer, B Hyphen and the Nocturne tied for second, each going 12-4. Triple S went 11-5 while the rookie Diamond Jim went 10-6.

colin-kaepernick-super-bowl
It’s early in the season, but week one saw some unexpected outcomes in the GoG standings. The first year gridiron geek Johnathan “Mischievious” McCumber started the year off with his best Nostradamus interpretation, going 13-3. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Season one champion Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti finished  with a putrid 9-7 record and is currently bringing up the rear. Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley went 12-4 while both Anthony “Triple S” and Thomas “Nocturne” Deja went 10-6.  Can Mischievious continue to cause mischief and finish the season on top? Will the Buzz-Saw rectify his horrible first week and defend his title? This weeks picks will provide a little more insight.

New York Jets @ New England
St. Louis @ Atlanta
Tennessee @ Houston
Detroit @ Arizona
New Orleans @ Tampa Bay
Jacksonville @ Oakland
Denver @ New York Giants
Pittsburgh @ Cincinnati

The Standout Games
Carolina @ Buffalo
Deja and Sellers favor Cam Newton and the Panthers while Asti, Conley, and the rookie McCumber go with the running back duo of Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller to run the Bills to a victory.

Minnesota @ Chicago
Homefield advantage proves to be the victory factor for Mr. Asti, B Hyphen, Tom “Nocturne” Deja, and “Triple S” Sellers as they all take the Bears to be go 2-0, while the rookie McCumber takes the Vikings to win on the road.

Washington @ Green Bay
Tom “The Nocturne” Deja stands alone as the only one to go with the RGIII and the Redskins. Asti, Conley, the rookie McCumber, and Sellers favor Aaron Rodgers and the Packers to put another mark in the win column.

Miami @ Indianapolis
Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley goes with only 11% percent of the yahoo pick em world that believe Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins will win. “The Buzz-Saw” Asti, “Nocturne” Deja, the rookie McCumber, and Triple S Sellers are all together, going with Andrew Luck and the Colts.

Dallas @ Kansas City
The majority of the group (Asti, McCumber, and Sellers) are Jones-in for a Cowboy victory. B Hyphen and Tom Deja like the Chiefs to defend their home field behind Alex Smith’s arm.

San Diego @ Philadelphia
In an effort to climb out of cellar, Asti takes the Chargers to march in to the city of brotherly love and leave victorious. The other four Gridiron Geeks like Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy and the Eagles to continue to fly in new Head Coach Chip Kelly’s high octane offense.

Cleveland @ Baltimore
Tom “Nocturne” Deja goes with the Browns to leave Baltimore with a victory. He’s the only one, as the rest of the Gridiron Geeks envision the Ravens getting their first victory after being embarrassed by the Broncos in week one.

San Francisco @ Seattle
The votes are split between these two as sophomore quarterbacks collide. “The Buzz-Saw” Asti, the rookie “Mischievious” McCumber, and “Triple S” Sellers take Colin Kaepernick, Frank Gore and the 49ers, while B Hyphen and “the Nocturne” Deja like the duo of Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch to lead the Seahawks to a victory at home.

Be sure to check back next week as the Gridiron Geeks continue to battle for the title “Minister of the Tricycle!”

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – 2013 NFL Preview *

nfl-logo
Are you ready for some football?! Cliche, I know. But really, should we even have to ask? Another NFL season is here, as the Baltimore Ravens, despite some key departures, look to defend their Super Bowl title.

Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo guide you through each division with team-by-team (well the worthy teams) analysis and predictions.

Has George finally ventured to Mike’s “the AFC is weak and lacking elite teams” dark side? Are the Broncos a deserving favorite, or capitalizing on a wide open field? Can Atlanta get the job done, now with even more pressure? How sexy are the Seahawks? Which sophomore star quarterback will suffer a slump, if any? And, since it happens every year, which teams will drop from the playoffs one season to the basement the next?

Expect Mike to jump back on a previous bandwagon darling and George to ride a surprising ship, that is sure to sink.

Gear up for the road to Super Bowl XLVIII. This is not just any other preview show. It’s another Howitzer and Buzz-saw preview show. Previewing like only they can, while conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…
