The members of the ThisWeekSPORTS.com predictions panel prefer to think the glass is half full, so rather than dwell on our up-and-down season, we expect that after a down week we again will show our prognostication prowess and have a strong week.

After every panelist posted at least 10 victories in Week 3, only four duplicated the feat for Week 4, including Dave Purpura, who is the sole leader at 43-17 overall. Others posting 10-5 records were Brad Emerine, Scott Hummel and Jarrod Ulrey.

Purpura has the overall lead by one game over Frank DiRenna and Patrick Dolan, who both were 9-6 for the week.

Enjoy Week 5!
