RossCode Picks - NFL Week IX Review

posted on 11/08/05 at 11:13:34 pm by Joel Ross

Finally! For the first time all season, I had a positive week. It would have been better, but that darn over/under killed me again!

  • Atlanta 17 (-2), Miami 10 (40 O/U) [P: $8.47, S: $10.00, O/U: $9.62, T: $28.09]: Michael Vick can actually play quarterback! He had over 200 yards passing and got a TD. Not too bad, but Miami isn't all that good of a team really. They're struggling with the lack of a decent quarterback, and that's hurting their running game too.
  • Carolina 34 (-1), Tampa Bay 14 (36.5 O/U) [P: ($10.00), S: ($10.00), O/U: ($10.00), T: ($30.00)]: Despite the fact that Greise isn't a great quarterback, losing him is really hurting the Bucs. With the focus being on Cadillac Williams, he's not performing like he was at the beginning of the season. I'm sure an injury and a huge workload doesn't help either! Carolina is slowly moving from a defensive team to having a decent offense. Steve Smith is a great receiver, and Stephen Davis can run. Delhomme is a serviceable quarterback - good enough to win, but doesn't try to do too much. He knows his limits.
  • Chicago 20 (-3), New Orleans 17 (34 O/U) [P: $6.76, S: $0.00, O/U: ($10.00), T: ($3.24)]: This season especially, backup running backs have been important. They always are, but this year seems to be more so than usual. Thomas Jones went out in this one, and Benson was able to step in and take over. Save for Smith for New Orleans - he had a 100+ yard day, despite the loss. I didn't see this one, but looking at the stats, I'm sure it was ugly. Having watched Chicago play, I'm sure it was!
  • Cincinnati 21 (-3), Baltimore 9 (36 O/U) [P: $7.04, S: $10.00, O/U: ($10.00), T: $7.04]: The "Jamal Lewis Bench Watch" has to be starting soon, right? He's been horrible this year. Of course, it doesn't help that no defense is scared of the passing threat that is Anthony Wright. Cincy continues to roll against the bottom tier of the league - they need to prove themselves soon against a top tier team.
  • Detroit 14, Minnesota 27 (0) (37 O/U) [P: ($10.00), S: ($10.00), O/U: ($10.00), T: ($30.00)]: How can Detroit lose to a team who just lost their starting quarterback? Well, it's the Lions. They have many things in their arsenal that helps them lose. This week, it was Joey Harrington. If he can't learn to play QB the Right Way from Mariuchi, it's time for him to go.
  • Houston 14, Jacksonville 21 (-13) (36.5 O/U) [P: $1.11, S: ($10.00), O/U: ($10.00), T: ($18.89)]: Houston's line is back to thier stellar play, giving up six sacks. They were doing better (2 the prior game), but apparently a defense like Jacksonville's is a little overwhelming to them. The Dom Capers Death Watch is back now.
  • Oakland 23, Kansas City 27 (-4) (52 O/U) [P: $5.10, S: $0.00, O/U: $9.43, T: $14.54]: Gutsy, gutsy move by Vermiel, going for it at the end of the game. But really, if you can't rely on your offensive line to get enough push to gain one yard when you need them to, then you deserve to lose. There's nothing like a call like this to show your team that you have confidence in them, and that confidence will prove valuable down the line. It looks like Holmes may be out for a bit, and they won't miss a beat with Larry Johnson in there. Again, a backup making a difference. Oakland, like I said, is fun to watch, but not quite there. Everyone's heard the T.O. stuff by now, and one of the destinations mentioned for him next year is Oakland. Are there enough balls to go around for Moss and Owens? Nope, which is why I hope it happens. It'd be fun to watch!
  • San Diego 31 (-6), New York Jets 26 (41 O/U) [P: $3.92, S: ($10.00), O/U: $9.01, T: $2.93]: I think it's time for L.T. to expand his game and start kicking field goals. If he did so, he could have scored every point for the Chargers this week. By the way, he's got more TD passes this season than a handful of starting quarterbacks on opening day. He's 3-3 for 3 TDs. Not bad. The Jets - well, I'm surprised they were as close as they were. Without Pennington, their passing game is bad, and teams can just come into the box and focus on stopping Martin. He needs some support!
  • Tennessee 14, Cleveland 20 (-3) (38.5 O/U) [P: $6.90, S: $10.00, O/U: $9.43, T: $26.33]: In the "who cares" category, the Browns get a win. Still, neither of these teams are going anywhere. Their only hope is to spoil the season of a rival down the line.
  • New York Giants 24 (-10.5), San Francisco 6 (42 O/U) [P: $1.82, S: $10.00, O/U: $10.00, T: $21.82]: Nothing special here. Just a solid win over a bad team.
  • Seattle 33 (-4), Arizona 19 (44 O/U) [P: $5.62, S: $10.00, O/U: ($10.00), T: $5.62]: If Kurt Warner was more accurate, he'd be dangerous - he had 330+ yards, but he had 3 picks. That hurts your team more than it helps. Of course, a running game would help too. Maybe something like the Seahawks - where Alexander had 170+ yards and two scores. Now that's how you do it!
  • Pittsburgh 20 (-3.5), Green Bay 10 (39.5 O/U) [P: $5.62, S: $10.00, O/U: ($10.00), T: $5.62]: How bad are the Steelers missing Big Ben? You know things are bad when you're starting rejected Lion quarterbacks! Of course it's not as bad as losing to a team with a rejected Lion QB. By the way, Duce coming in and getting it done is yet another example of a backup running back having a big impact this year.
  • Philadelphia 10, Washington 17 (-3) (40 O/U) [P: ($10.00), S: ($10.00), O/U: ($10.00), T: ($30.00)]: No T.O. - supposedly for the year, but we'll see. Owens is showing himself to be a spoiled brat, and is (in my mind) destined to be the NFLs version of a consultant. He'll go to the highest bidder for one year, help the team get as far as possible, and move on after the season's over. He'll make a good living as long as the injury bug stays away.
  • Indianapolis 40 (-3.5), New England 21 (47.5 O/U) [P: $5.35, S: $10.00, O/U: $9.80, T: $25.15]: Fear the Colts this year. Manning gets over hurdles every year, and this year was his opportunity to win in Boston, which he did. If things go right, he won't be back this year, even if they were to meet in the playoffs. The emotional high of getting Bruschi back took a hit, but you had to expect that against a Colts team that is just dominant this year.

Results Summary

  • Picks (this week): 11 - 3 (78.57%) - Winnings: $27.71: Wow. I did good this week! This is one of the best I've ever had (the best was 13-3 in 2003).
  • Picks (season): 78 - 52 (60.00%) - Winnings: ($86.86): I'm working my way back to black. Still a couple of weeks to go, but I did get my percentage back up to 60 - now it's time to push for 65%
  • Spread (this week): 7 - 5 (58.33%) - Winnings: $20.00: Two pushes this week - if those teams could have scored just one more point, I'd be up by $40 this week. Maybe next week!
  • Spread (season): 54 - 73 (42.52%) - Winnings: ($190.00): Still down big, but the bleeding has stopped.
  • Over/Under (this week): 6 - 8 (42.86%) - Winnings: ($22.70): Over/Under kills me again. I would have been up by almost $50 without over under.
  • Over/Under (season): 60 - 68 (46.88%) - Winnings: ($112.19): The bleeding is still happening here!
  • Total Weekly Winnings: $25.00: This is my first positive week. I should celebrate by taking my fake money and buying a fake dinner.
  • Total Overall Winnings: ($389.04): Overall, I'm way down, but over the past few weeks, it's been slowing down.

I'll be back on Thursday with some picks!

Grand Rapids .NET User Group Meeting Tonight

posted on 11/08/05 at 03:30:31 pm by Joel Ross

While most of the focus today is on the other side of the state (on the Visual Studio 2005 launch event in Detroit), there's still a meeting in Grand Rapids tonight, and it looks like it'll be a dandy. Tim Huckaby is going to be doing a presentation on smart clients - probably pretty similar to what he did at Tech Ed, which I missed.

I'll be there tonight, as well as at least one other NuSoft'er that I know of (and he happens to be the other half of Tourney Logic). If you're going to be there, let me know! And if you're not, you should be!

Microsoft's Virtual WiFi Card

posted on 11/08/05 at 12:34:47 am by Joel Ross

A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft released what they're calling a VirtualWiFi adapter, via Microsoft Research. It's pretty slick really. It allows you to connect to multiple wireless networks from the same wireless card.

I haven't looked, but I would like is to be able to connect to the same wireless network twice. Why? Well, for one client, I have a Cisco VPN that binds to a particular connection and shuts down all outside activity - everything you do goes through the VPN connection. Now, if I hook up a hard wired connection, I can route my traffic through that, but the point of wireless is that I don't need a wire. One more detail: their network is very restrictive - if I have an issue, I can get to Google to search for an answer, but pretty much every search result is blocked by their firewall. And no news groups. If I could use my wireless connection to connect twice to the same network, I could get around this.

Of course, I get around this now because I do all of my development in Virtual PC, so it only limits the VPC connection, and not the connection on my main machine. But switching back and forth isn't always fun either.

FolderShare Now Free

posted on 11/08/05 at 12:31:31 am by Joel Ross

Last week, Microsoft announced they were purchasing Foldershare, presumably to integrate with Office Live. I wondered what changes would occur - Lookout was free after Microsoft bought them - and today, the first change was revealed. It's free too! You used to be able to use it for free for a couple of folders and a few files, but now, there's no limits. I've been using FolderShare for a few weeks now, and it's a great tool to backup important files and just ensure that what I do is getting backed up.

So now, you can share as many files and folders across as many machines as you want without it costing a dime! In cases like this, it's nice when Microsoft jumps into a market!

If Microsoft's looking for a feature request, here's one: Make a client for the Pocket PC. I could use that to synch my podcasts to my MP3 player! And for those who thought it was some sort of conspiracy that shortly before Microsoft bought FolderShare that the Mac client was pulled, well, it's back - AFTER Microsoft bought them.

New MCMS Book

posted on 11/07/05 at 10:20:55 pm by Joel Ross

My friend Andrew Connell has been working hard lately, and the fruit of his labors is done! He's been a co-author on Advanced Microsoft Content Management Server Development, along with 3 other highly respected CMS gurus.

And today, Andrew announced that the book is done, and ready for you to buy! Congrats, Andrew! I'd tell you how I think the book is, but Mr. Connell hasn't sent me my promotional copy yet (just kidding!).

It's amazing. He writes a book and still has time to slaughter me in our little NFL pick competition!

I don't usually post a whole lot about my blog traffic, mainly because most people don't care. I watch it (probably too much), but I don't talk about it. It's not huge, but over the past couple of days, it's gone through the roof for one reason: Dave Winer.

Well, not completely, but he's the underlying cause. I put up a post?agreeing with Dave's latest idea, and since I was one of the first to link to it, he picked up on it. And things escalated from there. Shortly after that, Scoble picked up on it too.

Wow. Here was the most surprising thing: Dave drove more traffic than Robert. Although, traffic is still coming, and over time, Scoble is catching up, and in fairness, Scoble's link is at the bottom of a rather long rant, and among four or five other links, while Dave's post is a quick one liner linking to me. Anyway, I got about?20 times as many referrers as I'd been getting per day, and 4 times as much traffic. And the search engines indexed me twice as much.

I would have been happy if it stopped there. I don't do this for traffic, but it's nice to get some exposure, and I appreciate what Dave did a lot. But that's not where it stopped. I check Memeorandum every now and then, and was surprised to see my blog linked from there?- right at the top!

I ended up on there three separate times yesterday, and that generated some traffic. Then, I found I was quoted on this morning. All because Dave threw me a bone and linked to me. I didn't really add anthing new to the convo. I just threw up a "me too" post.

Last year, Scoble linked to me when the MSN Desktop Search was released. This year, Scoble and Winer did. So I guess next year I have to get them both to link to me again, and add in someone else in. Maybe I can get Slashdotted!

All in all, not a bad day for my measely little blog. I think I even got a few new subscribers (welcome!)...

Anyway, that's?enough ego feeding! Back to my regularly scheduled blogging...RCW 25 is almost ready.

RossCode Picks - Week IX

posted on 11/03/05 at 09:38:41 pm by Joel Ross

This is a bitter sweet point in the season - it's now past the half way point of the season. After this week, 130 games will be complete - just under half. Including playoffs, there's 267 games all season. Anyway, here's my picks

  • Atlanta (-2) vs. Miami (40 O/U): Atlanta is a good team, and while Miami is getting settled into their two back game, Mike Michael Vick is going to take it to the Dolfins defense.
  • Carolina (-1) vs. Tampa Bay (36.5 O/U): Wow. Have a bad week, and all of a sudden the oddsmakers look down on you. The Bucs are a good team, and Carolina is playing catch up this year.
  • Chicago (-3) vs. New Orleans (34 O/U): New Orleans is a wreck right now. Chicago is "dominating" the NFC North, and they should be able to run all over the Saints defense.
  • Cincinnati (-3) vs. Baltimore (36 O/U): This shouldn't even be close. But then again, neither should have the Pittsburgh game. I think Baltimore will lose big - coming off a MNF road game is tough to do.
  • Detroit vs. Minnesota (0) (37 O/U): Minnesota without Culpepper. Not often you see that. By the way, there goes my fantasy team! Detroit may get Harrington back - get, as if they want him back. He may have to start because of an injury to Garcia. Too bad. This one could be ugly.
  • Houston vs. Jacksonville (-13) (36.5 O/U): This one could be ugly too. But not because of both teams. Jacksonville should have no problem with this one. Even with a 2 TD disadvantage.
  • Oakland vs. Kansas City (-4) (52 O/U): Like I've said in the past, Oakland is a fun team to watch, but that doesn't always translate into wins. It won't this week as long as K.C. uses their tandem of Larry Johnson and Priest Holmes correctly.
  • San Diego (-6) vs. New York Jets (41 O/U): Look for L.T. to get back into the end zone this week. And who knows...the Jets may not get there.
  • Tennessee vs. Cleveland (-3) (38.5 O/U): This isn't the first one, but in the second half of the season, these games mean less and less - neither of these teams are going anywhere. Of course, that means that CBS will choose this game as the one to show.
  • New York Giants (-10.5) vs. San Francisco (42 O/U): The Giants should have no problem with the Niners. Of course, so should have the Bucs, right?
  • Seattle (-4) vs. Arizona (44 O/U): Arizona is in turmoil at the QB position. If I remember correctly, Warner isn't that good. Yet, he's starting again. Why? Who knows...maybe the heat is getting to Dennis Green.
  • Pittsburgh (-3.5) vs. Green Bay (39.5 O/U): I would say this will be a blow out, but after their performance against Baltimore, well, I'm not as confident. They should still win, but Brett Favre may want to revenge last week. Given his recent struggles, that may not be a good thing.
  • Philadelphia vs. Washington (-3) (40 O/U): Coming off a 36 point loss, you'd guess they'll be fired up for this one. Even though Philly is being exposed without a running game, the Redskins don't have the offense to run up anything significant on the Eagles, whose defense is good.
  • Indianapolis (-3.5) vs. New England (47.5 O/U): What a great Monday night match-up - on paper. It should be good. The Colts get to travel to Boston and not have 1.) playoff pressure, and 2.) snow (the current forcast says it'll be partly cloudy and around 45-50). Things are looking good for Indy to get a win - one they need to 1.) get over the stigma of playing in Boston, and 2.) get them one step closer to ensuring they don't have to go back to New England in January.

We'll check back next week (notice no mention of day this time!).

In Episode 50 of the Engadget podcast (I've listened to them all so far!), Ryan and Peter announced (sort of) that they will eventually do a video podcast once they get the time and equipment to do it right.

Combine this with the recent announcement of the Engadget Lab, and I can't wait to see a?video of Ryan and Peter walking around in white lab coats with all kinds of bubbling concoctions in the background!

RossCode Picks - Week VIII Review

posted on 11/03/05 at 09:35:42 pm by Joel Ross


  • Arizona* 13, Dallas 34 (-9.5) (40 O/U) [P: $2.65, S: ($10.00), O/U: $9.26, T: $1.90]: I had the pick right, but I didn't expect Dallas to win by that much. Why did they win? They established a running game, and, despite using their backup (Marion Barber), they dominated the Cardinals defense.
  • Chicago 19, Detroit 13 (-3) (32.5 O/U) [P: ($10.00), S: ($10.00), O/U: ($10.00), T: ($30.00)]: I watched the end of this one. How can you throw a pass over the middle while running left in your own territory in overtime? Ask Jeff Garcia. I thought he was a good quarterback. I'm starting to think that it's not the quarterback. It's Detroit. Detroit makes quarterbacks bad. So bad that they can't even go play elsewhere. Detroit already was the places for coaching careers to die (no Detroit head coach has ever had another NFL head coaching job after leaving Detroit). Maybe now it's a place for quarterbacks to die too.
  • Cleveland 16, Houston 19 (-1.5) (37 O/U) [P: ($10.00), S: ($10.00), O/U: $9.26, T: ($10.74)]: Houston wins! Dom Caper's season is saved! Wait - it's only one game, you say? Ahh, well, at least they won't have the perfectly imperfect season now.
  • Green Bay 14, Cincinnati 21 (-9.5) (46 O/U) [P: $2.70, S: ($10.00), O/U: ($10.00), T: ($17.30)]: Five INTs from Favre? I hope Green Bay is positioning themselves to trade up to get Leinert, or at least have something in mind. Those fans will have trouble swallowing not having Favre - but please don't make them also swallow a poor quarterback. Here's?an interesting note: All NFC North quarterbacks have thrown 5 picks in one game - and three of them have done so against Cincinnati. That hurts.
  • Jacksonville 21 (-3), St. Louis 24 (42.5 O/U) [P: ($10.00), S: ($10.00), O/U: $9.09, T: ($10.91)]: This was a close one. The Jags held the lead for most of the fourth quarter - but when it mattered: when the clock hits 0:00. Fred Taylor had a good game?- when he's healthy, he's awesome - but it wasn't enough, as St. Louis had it's own stud running back.
  • Miami 21, New Orleans 6 (-2.5) (41 O/U) [P: $12.00, S: $10.00, O/U: $10.00, T: $32.00]: Finally, Miami gets the two headed monster going - Both Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown had good games. New Orleans is still reeling from the loss of McAllister, and even though Joe Horn's back on the field, having Brooks lead your team with six rushes isn't going to cut it.
  • Minnesota* 7, Carolina 38 (-8) (44.5 O/U) [P: $2.99, S: ($10.00), O/U: $9.80, T: $2.80]: Could losing Culpepper be a blessing in disguise? He was flat out awful this year, and to me, it only seemed that Tice didn't yank him because he's "Daunte Culpepper" and not because he deserved it. If most other quarterbacks performed the way Daunte did, they would get yanked. Culpepper gained leeway (rightfully so) from last year's performance, and it's not totally his fault (offensive line losses definitely hurt him), but sometimes a change is needed to jump start a team. Minnesota needs a jump start. They aren't out of the NFC North title run, but they need to get back on track if they want to have any chance. Oh yeah. Carolina - Steve Smith burned Smoot big time, and Delhomme had a great day.
  • Oakland 34 (-1), Tennessee 25 (45.5 O/U) [P: $8.62, S: $10.00, O/U: $9.09, T: $27.71]: Tennessee held the control in this one. They should have won, right? So what went wrong? Tennessee got off to a slow start, and the Raiders jumped out to a quick 17-0 lead in the first. That's tough to come back from, unless your name is Peyton Manning.
  • Washington 0, New York Giants 36 (-2) (42 O/U) [P: $7.87, S: $10.00, O/U: $10.00, T: $27.87]: Or Eli Manning. He's been the comeback kid so far, but that wasn't needed this week. But he didn't have to make a come back this week. In fact, all he needed to do was hand the ball to Tiki Barber all day. Barber dominated this one, gaining over 200 yards on just 24 carries. His domination helped edge the New York time of possession advantage to almost 19 minutes. It's hard to put up much of an offensive threat when you only hold the ball for 20 minutes!
  • Kansas City 20, San Diego 28 (-6) (50.5 O/U) [P: $4.17, S: $10.00, O/U: $10.30, T: $24.47]: Tomlinson once again goes without a touchdown, but they win this time. And they do it by coming back after being down 21-3 at half time. That's a pretty good comeback, and they did it through the air. For everyone who passed on drafting Anthony Gates, well, I know of 31 teams who would like to rethink that right about now.
  • Philadelphia 21, Denver 49 (-3.5) (42.5 O/U) [P: ($10.00), S: ($10.00), O/U: $9.43, T: ($10.57)]: Denver ran all over the Eagles. Anderson and Bell scored three touchdowns between them, but here's an interesting thought: Plummer for MVP? That's the talk after he threw four touchdowns, and is making better decisions with the ball. I'm still not a huge fan of Plummer, but he's starting to change my mind. The lack of a running game is starting to haunt the Eagles - no, I don't really buy a short passing game as a substitute for a real running game. Until they start using Westbrook as a real back, they'll suffer the same fate as the past four years - losing in the playoffs. For the past few years, the NFC was weak, and the Eagles could hide their deficiencies for longer, but this year, the other teams are getting better.
  • Tampa Bay 10 (-11), San Francisco 15 (36 O/U) [P: ($10.00), S: ($10.00), O/U: ($10.00), T: ($30.00)]: How can a team who loses their starting quarterback and has Cadillac Williams and Michael Pittman as your backs not turn to a run-heavy offense? I thought Gruden was a solid coach, but his play calling (34 passes versus 17 RB touches) is insane. The 49ers got it right. They don't have a solid quarterback right now, and they ran 36 times and only passed 19. They didn't lead for more than 10 minutes the whole game, but persistence paid off, and they lead when it matters - at 0:00.
  • Buffalo 16, New England 21 (-9.5) (44 O/U) [P: $2.74, S: ($10.00), O/U: $9.90, T: $2.64]: Bruschi made the difference in this one. Not necessarily his play, but the motivation of getting him back. Of course, it was only Buffalo. Somehow, Buffalo wins the game on the field, but loses on the scoreboard - they are something like plus eight in turnovers, and in this one, they lead in a lot of categories (total yards, rushing yards, passing yards, to name a few) yet lost. That's a tough pill to swallow.
  • Baltimore 19, Pittsburgh 20 (-10) (44 O/U) [P: $2.25, S: ($10.00), O/U: ($10.00), T: ($17.75)]: Pittsburgh just barely squeezed by on this one. Everyone expected a hard, grinding game, but that's not what we got here. Why did Pittsburgh go away from the run? Parker averaged 4.5 yards per carry, yet only got the ball 14 times. Yes, Pittsburgh got the win, but Baltimore isn't good enough to deserve to only lose by one to the Steelers.

Results Summary

  • Picks (this week): 9 - 5 (64.29%) - Winnings: ($4.01): See? You have to hit that 65% mark to be profitable. 64.3% just doesn't cut it.
  • Picks (season): 67 - 49 (57.76%) - Winnings: ($114.56): If 64.3% doesn't do it, there's no way 57.8% will do it. I'm still bleeding, but not as much.
  • Spread (this week): 4 - 10 (28.57%) - Winnings: ($60.00): I did horribly picking this week. It's amazing that you can pick 9 winners, but then be so off on spreads. Of course, I picked two teams to lose but cover, and neither did so - those are tough to pick!
  • Spread (season): 47 - 68 (40.87%) - Winnings: ($210.00): Ouch. I should just reverse my picks. I'd be up pretty good right now.
  • Over/Under (this week): 10 - 4 (71.43%) - Winnings: $56.14: This is amazing to me. I always thought I would be horrible at over/under, but here I am, up almost $60 this week.
  • Over/Under (season): 54 - 60 (47.37%) - Winnings: ($89.48): Still down big, but I expected that.
  • Total Weekly Winnings: ($7.87): Barely down this week. If just one wrong pick reversed, I would have most likely been in the black for the week. Oh so close!
  • Total Overall Winnings: ($414.04): Way down, but it's slowing. Now, it's time to reverse the trend for the rest of the season, and get back above 0.

This is late getting posted, so my picks will be out shortly!
