NFL Divisional Round Picks: It’s Going to be a Dog Weekend

By Anthony Stalter | January 14, 2017 | 0 Comments

First things first: I’m waiving the white flag on my “Fading Kevin Wheeler” series. In the end, it was one of the dumber ideas I had, mostly because I was making picks on games I didn’t truly have a feel for, but also because I didn’t factor in how Kevin is a machine. An NFL-picking …

NFL Playoff Observations: Rodgers’ Masterpiece, Beckham’s Butterfingers, Better Games Ahead

By Anthony Stalter | January 9, 2017 | 0 Comments

It wasn’t a great start for the NFL. Three of this weekend’s four games were unwatchable and the fourth, the Giants-Packers matchup, could have been turned off following Green Bay’s final touchdown at 5:48 remaining in the fourth quarter. This lackluster postseason start will inevitably lead to a conversation about sagging ratings, Roger Goodell’s horrendous …

Fading Kevin Wheeler Part XII: The ‘A Push is a Win’ Edition

By Anthony Stalter | December 31, 2016 | 0 Comments

I pushed Kevin Wheeler last week, which might as well constitute a win for me this season. The Bears and Colts were losers, while the Chiefs and Cowboys were winners. That runs my season record to 23-37-1 against Wheels. There’s still time to mount an epic comeback if I can just go 14-0 from now …

Kevin Wheeler and I are doing incredible things. Let me explain. Since I started fading Wheeler, I’m now 21-35-1 with my picks.

Fading Kevin Wheeler Part X: The ‘Fade Me’ Again Edition

By Anthony Stalter | December 17, 2016 | 0 Comments

Earlier this week my editor asked me why I continue to write these “Fading Kevin Wheeler” columns now that I’m 20-31-1 on the season. Well, there are three reasons: 1) I’m an idiot. Pure, 100% stupid. 2) I hate myself. 3) I love our 101sports.com readers so much that I couldn’t just pull this column …

Fading Kevin Wheeler Part VIII: The ‘I’m Going to Need a Big Shovel’ Edition

By Anthony Stalter | November 18, 2016 | 0 Comments

After a 4-2 week three weeks ago, I decided to complete crap down my own leg and go 0-6 two weeks ago. The beating was so severe I skipped last week’s picks to regroup and re-focus. (Actually my wife Kristen and I attended a wedding in San Francisco so I was traveling, but the weekend …

Fading Kevin Wheeler Part VII: The Scotch Worked Edition

By Anthony Stalter | November 4, 2016 | 0 Comments

Great news, everybody: Scotch works. After struggling for weeks to properly fade Kevin Wheeler’s football picks, I took Aaron Rodgers’ philosophy of dealing with my problems and poured myself a glass of scotch, then broke down the film. The result? I went 4-2 last week, with one Eagles’ meltdown against the Cowboys on Sunday night …

Fading Kevin Wheeler Part VI: ‘Where is the Scotch?’ Edition

By Anthony Stalter | October 28, 2016 | 0 Comments

I’m horrible at fading Kevin Wheeler. There, I said it. Now you don’t have to. (You will anyway, I know you.) I lost again last week. Hit two of three in college football but went o’fer in the NFL to run my record against Wheeler to 12-16-1. Following the Packers’ loss to the Cowboys in …

Fading Kevin Wheeler Part V: No Way the Rams Should Win in London, Which Means They Will

By Anthony Stalter | October 22, 2016 | 1 Comment

If I keep losing, we’ll have to change the name of this column to, “The picks that Kevin Wheeler is making that you should bet on.” I’m now 10-13-1 and I have put myself in quite the hole. Don’t worry though, as Jeff Fisher always says following a loss: “We’ll get this fixed.” Then he …
