The weekly picks are back

Everybody into the office pool! Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water -- just when you thought it was safe to strip naked and hit the Wendy's drive-thru -- along comes the news that Down and Distance will once again be trying to pick the NFL winners. Longtime readers will remember that last year we finished tied for sixth out of the 30 or so writers and websites participating in The Writers' Picks at (Our quite-respectable 172-84 record was just above the magical two-thirds threshold that separates the men from the boyz.)

The picks have switched hosts this year, and now appear on Breakaway Beach (last year's co-winner). The Week 1 picks are live at the site ... and guess who's already 1-for-1 this year, even with Charlie Batch starting for the Steelers? Let's hear you say "Championship!"
