I take great pride in writing for a Cowboys blog that has writers who really know a thing or two about football - because I certainly don't.

Six out of seven BTB panelists got at least eight out of 14 picks correct this weekend, and rabblerousr notched his second weekly win, picking 10 of 14 games correctly. Dave and rabblerousr remain atop the BTB leaderboard after four weeks, with 41 and 42 correct picks respectively. Other BTB panelists didn't fare quite as well and one panelist who prefers to remain unnamed would probably be better off flipping a coin instead of ruminating too much on stats, algorithms and the cosmic injustice of random game outcomes.

Today, we're going to look at our predictions from a different perspective. After the break, we look at how the BTB panel looks against six other NFL pick 'em panels: ESPN, USAToday, Yahoosports, Sportingnews, the staff panel at the Dallas Morning News and our SB Nation friends from Bleeding Green Nation. Mirror, mirror on the wall ...

Here is the summary of the BTB week four results. Another solid week for most panelists.

Week 4 Record 8 - 6 8 - 6 9 - 5 9 - 5 5 - 9 8 - 6 10 - 4 8 - 6

And now for a look at how the other panels stack up relative to the powerful minds at BTB. Six different panels, 38 football experts in total. rabblerousr beat every single one of those panelists, and Dave is tied for second place with ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the DMN's Tim Cowlishaw and JJT, Yahoosports' Les Carpenter and JimmyK from BGN. Hat tip to the BGN guys who have also delivered top notch results so far.

* Ron Jaworski does not pick the Monday Night games so he has 36 correct picks against only 57 games.

Do you remember when you had to call on a friend or a brother when you were getting beat up in the schoolyard? That's what I just did with Dave and rabblerousr.
