Alright folks, FOOTBALL. IS. BACK. Where over here in NY, on our way to the Giants vs Jags game. Sunday morning. 59 degrees with a little rain. I mean, what else can you ask for? Perfect football weather and a perfect week 1 schedule. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning again. This is awesome. I went to bed with a smile on my face and I woke up with an even bigger one.

Like I do every year and every week for #TheSpan, I’m going to post my picks for every game with scores so if you want to bet against the spread, you can.

And remember, if your team has the opportunity, ALWAYS, Run up the score, No Subs! #TheSpan
