The Cleveland Browns remain winless, but that hasn’t stopped our staff and a few readers from continuing to do well in picking other NFL games.

Week 4 is in the books, and I’m here to update everyone on the most thrilling football-related competition in Cleveland to date.

Like last week, there were some upsets that everyone thought would win, and some teams that everyone thought would lose that pulled out a victory. Once again, the Cleveland Browns failed those who believed in them, and I don’t expect them to win any time soon.

Here’s a standings update after Week 4:

  1. Brandon Onda 43 points (10)
  2. Steven Kubitza 41 points (9)
  3. Thomas Moore 41 points (10)
  4. Roger Cohen 39 points (7)
  5. Andrew Seibt 38 points (9)
  6. Joel Cade 37 points (9)
  7. Josh Dentler 37 points (9)
  8. Derek Bryner 34 points (8)
  9. Jonathan Goehring 26 points (8)
  10. Clayton Braham 24 points (0)
  11. Matt Stevenson 23 points (9)

Weekly Leader: Brandon Onda, 10 correct picks

This Brandon Onda guy sure knows how to pick em! For two weeks in a row, Brandon has led the pool with the most correct picks.

It’s a good thing he picked 42 points for the Monday Night Football game, as Tom matched his weekly total but just missed the tiebreaker by a mere four points. From the viewpoint of someone trying to get to the top of the standings, I must say that you two need to just make a few less right picks each week to let guys like Joel, Roger and myself get a shot at the lead.

Congratulations on the highest total this week, gentlemen.

Negative Groupthink

In the Dawg Pound Daily Podcast, I chose the Atlanta Falcons over the Buffalo Bills as my lock pick. Funny thing about it, is that everyone else in the pool was on the same wavelength as we all chose Atlanta to win. As it turns out, the Bills are not tanking, and seem to do something the Browns cannot, and that is win football games.

The other big domino to fall this week was the New England Patriots losing to the Carolina Panthers in Foxborough of all places. One would figure that since the Saints beat the Panthers and the Patriots blasted the Saints that this was a no-brainer and it certainly proved otherwise.
