As the NFL enters its final week of the regular season, our Annual NFL Pickoff VS the Spread is becoming intense. Our Buddy Snyder, who has held the lead since mid-season, continues to hold serve with a record of 126-105-8. Colin moved into second place in week 16 at 121-110-8. Reidy is two games behind Colin at 119-112-8 and Scott Stafford is catching up. He sits at 117-114-8, above .500 for the first time this year.
The contest continues through the Super Bowl, but week 17 presents the last chance for our pickers to work with a full sixteen game slate.
Here’s how the fellows see it going down in week 17.

It's Denver Nuggets media day - and the team had some surprises in store.
No, not the idea that they are "deep" and "youthful" and "full of promise" as they always seem to be this time of year.
And not that Ty Lawson declares them to be "the best in the West" (a notion that Lakers and Thunder fans may take issue with).
But that the team will play eighteen home games dressed in these beautiful new Lakers alternative uniforms which were unveiled today.
The semi-throwback unis re-introduce the "Skyline" pattern of yesteryear in conjunction with the blue and yellow color scheme that says "Nuggets" these days. The look has been a big hit among fans on Twitter throughout the day. Kroenke Sports can count on a steady stream of dollars filtering into the team stores from fashionable fans fiending for the latest threads.
After an up and down past two games, and two straight six-point losses to top-shelf NFL teams, what is a fan to think of the 2012 Broncos?
Our 2012 NFL pickoff versus the spread is in full swing with Colin, John, Scott and our Buddy, Snyder locked in a tight race. All competitors, including our guest picker, Peter Burns, hit between 7-9 and 9-7 last week.
This week James Hernandez from 5280 Shirt Shop threw his hat in the ring.
A super-famous National prognosticator (from a major magazine) and a local Sports Radio host, each named Peter, have made their predictions for the 2012 Broncos season. Which one's the optimist - and which one's the grump? Read on, friends.
South Stands Denver dot com is entering it's fourth NFL season and it's high time we hosted a Fantasy League open to readers, listeners, friends and fans. We will secure a sweet live draft kit from DraftKit.com and hang it up at Boone's Tavern on Sunday, August 26th for an 8:30 draft time.
The league will include 10-14 teams depending on the level of interest.
Scoring will be point-per-reception. The league will be hosted at CBS Sportsline or at Yahoo.
Teams must be secured by Sunday August 19 so that we have a week to hash out the league's rules.
There will be a mid-season party and an end-of-season party and trophy presentation.
