The Trike Team is proud to reintroduce you to Geeks of Gridiron. Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti, Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley, Thomas “Nocturne” Deja, and Anthony “Triple S” Sellers return with their biased and non-expert picks of every NFL game throughout the 2013 NFL season. Joining the foursome this season is Johnathan “Mischievious” McCumber.
Last season, the Buzz-Saw took home the first “Minister of the Tricycle” trophy by continually outshining every other competitor. Will his success continue into this season? That question will be answered at the end of the season, as anything less than a repeat performance will be considered a failure. And, yes, we all want to see him fail.
But talk is cheap, it’s time to get to the picks.
The Unanimous Games (unanimous group picks are bold and italicized)
Baltimore @ Denver (played Thursday)
New England @ Buffalo
Minnesota @ Detroit
Oakland @ Indianapolis
Seattle @ Carolina
Kansas City @ Jacksonville
Houston @ San Diego
The Standout Games
Cincinnati @ Chicago
The Buzz-Saw, B Hyphen, Thomas “Nocturne” Deja, and Triple S like the cats from Ohio to go into Chicago and prey on the Bears, while the newcomer Mischievious chose the Bears.
Miami @ Cleveland
Four of the five like the Browns to beat Miami, with Thomas Deja (click here to read his Moves Like Curtis and the reasoning behind every pick) being the lone ranger picking the Dolphins to go to Cleveland and win.
Atlanta @ New Orleans
Like the Cincy/Chicago game, Mischevious stands alone with the Falcons while the rest believe the Saints march to a week one victory.
Tampa Bay @ New York Jets
B Hyphen shows faith in former Mountaineer QB Geno Smith and goes with the Jets at home. The rest of the GoG team like Deja’s paper plane description as they go with the Buccaneers.
Tennessee @ Pittsburgh
Mischievious and Triple S “remember the titans” and believe they will go into Pittsburgh and take down the Steelers, while Deja, The Buzz-Saw, and B Hyphen go with the Steelers.
Arizona @ St. Louis
Asti, B Hyphen, Triple S, and the rookie go with St. Louis while Deja prefers the Cardinals.
Green Bay @ San Francisco
In one of the more intriguing matchups of the week, The Buzz-Saw and Triple S go with the Packers, while B Hyphen, Mischievious, and Deja pick the 49ers.
New York Giants @ Dallas
America’s team they are not, at least not for the GoG team, as Asti, B Hyphen, Deja, and Triple S pick the Giants. The rookie Mischievious, on the other hand, takes the Cowboys.
Philadelphia @ Washington
Mischievious decides to walk alone in yet another game (this is the fourth), flying with the Eagles, while the rest of the GoG team go with RGIII and the Redskins.
And there you have it, the picks from each and every Geek of Gridiron member. Be sure to check back next week as we jostle to become the next Minister of the Tricycle.
