This week, Danny talked Patriots offseason with Comcast SportsNet’s Mike Giardi

DANNY PICARD: I did not expect to be talking about the Patriots trying to trade for Brandin Cooks. Have you heard anything on this interest that the Patriots reportedly have interest in trying to acquire New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks? MIKE GIARDI: That’s not something that would surprise me at all. You look […]

This week, Danny talked Celtics with Brandon Wahlberg

DANNY PICARD: I want your thoughts on what the Boston Celtics did — which is nothing — before the NBA Trade Deadline. BRANDON WAHLBERG: I’m pretty disappointed. I mean, I’d rather them do nothing than make a small trade that might kind of screw things up. If they were going to make a deal, it […]

This week, Danny shared his thoughts on some Patriots choosing not to go to the White House

I don’t care. That’s right, I said it. I don’t care. When it comes to professional athletes going to the White House to celebrate their respective championship, I’m not one that gets too worked up about the team’s attendance. At least six New England Patriots have said they will not be making the trip to […]

This week, Danny gave “Pic’s Picks” for Super Bowl LI

  I realize the Super Bowl isn’t until Feb. 5. But I couldn’t wait another week. I already know what’s going to happen a week from Sunday in Houston. And I can’t possibly keep it to myself.   Most NFL analysts and “experts” will hold off from revealing their predictions until next week. But what’s […]

This week, Danny gave “Pic’s Picks” for Conference Championship weekend

Let’s call it what it is. I didn’t have a good weekend in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. The only game I got correct was the New England Patriots winning and covering the spread as a 16-point favorite. Makes sense though. The Pats were the closest thing to the sure thing all season […]

This week, Danny gave “Pic’s Picks” for the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (+4.5) over Atlanta Falcons -It’s been a nice little season for Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons. But I’m afraid we’re about to see the real Matty Ice on Saturday afternoon. And that’s the Matty Ice that soils himself in a big spot. The pressure will be on a Falcons team that finished […]

This week, Danny gave his NFL Playoff predictions

Before I made my playoff picks, I had to go back to look at my preseason predictions. And if it plays out the way I now think it will play out, then my preseason final four is looking pretty good. I took the Patriots over the Steelers in the AFC Championship, and the Packers over […]

This week, Danny gave “Pic’s Picks” for NFL Week 16

With two weeks remaining in the regular season, the playoff scenarios in both the AFC and NFC are somewhat out of control. And to make it even more chaotic, most of the games in Week 16 are being played on Saturday, because Sunday is Christmas. That said, I’m going road-heavy this weekend. Might sound crazy at first, but […]

This week, Danny gave “Pic’s Picks” for NFL Week 14:

Listen up. I’ve been on an absolute roll lately. I went 4-1 last week, 4-1 in Week 12, and 3-1-1 in Week 11. Let me do the math for you. That means I’m 11-3-1 in the last three weeks. There’s no reason to slow down now, so let’s get back to work. Here are my […]

This week, Danny gave “Pic’s Picks” for Week 13 in the NFL:

DENVER BRONCOS (-5) over Jacksonville Jaguars -If the playoffs began after Week 12, the 7-4 Denver Broncos would be on the outside looking in, thanks to Sunday night’s overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Denver. There’s still hope for the Broncos, who are fighting to be the third AFC West team to advance to the […]
