Our Week 4 picks

It's a new era in Newsday's Gridiron Guide, as John Boell takes over the picks for Ed McNamara. Welcome, John.

Hopefully he hasn't taken any cues from Glauber or myself, as we're toiling in mediocrity thus far in 2010.

We both finished even Steven last week, although that leaves Glauber in first place among Newsday competitors, and me one game behind.

I did finish 9-1 in my high school football picks, but let's be honest, none of you care about that. Online betting sites don't take any scratch on Oceanside or Floyd.

One NFL team that's hot is the 4-0 Bears, who play the Giants at the New Meadowlands Stadium tonight. Who picked Chicago this week? Only Mr. Boell and I. As I said, welcome, John.

Anyway, here are the rest of Glauber's (and my) picks.
