Who Am I?

2012 NFL SEASON: WEEK 3



One-eighth of the 2012 NFL Season is complete. And so far, well, I think Jim Mora can sum it up best:



The record:

WEEK 2:       7-9
TOTAL:    18-14

As shown below,
Monica Roberts had a better week than me. She finished at .500, but she beat me fair and square for the week. She’s bummed out about her performance as I am about mine, but 8-8 was good enough for the Broncos to make the playoffs last season.

Gotta do better next time. There are only 224 games remaining across 15 weeks.
