Terrible twos: Putz, Pats stumble

“Terrible” is the word that my chief statistician Melissa Hartman used to describe the New England Patriots performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday. That description easily could have been attributed to my stinker as well.
’Tis the season.
While the Patriots can chalk up injuries, the toll of a long, grueling season, and Father Time for their recent slump, I don’t have that luxury.
I posted a 5-7 record in Week 15 of our Beat The Putz pro football contest, allowing 70 percent of the field the chance to take home a gift certificate from The Tavern Restaurant. That honor went to John Pellan, of Westfield who emerged from a five-way, first place tie with a perfect tiebreaker total of 53 points. Congratulations.
Time is running out for the Patriots to turn things around, and so are the opportunities for contestants to receive a qualifying entry into our grand prize drawing. All you have to do is beat me, “The Putz”, and outsmart the public to finish first for the week. Two weeks remain. Good luck! – Chris Putz
