The “Melted Cheese,” Pick of the Week: Big Dub, Cincy (+7)
Turned out to be an outright winner, helping Big Dub maintain his lead on the pack. Just wanted to touch on how completely over it is in New Orleans. Drew Brees window? Shut. They are the 2012 Phillies right now. It’s going to get worse before it gets better. Sean Payton might want to wiggle out of there before he loses genius status. The Eagles might be interested after Chip Kelly goes to Florida.
The “Sugar Free” Awful Pick of the Week: Grossy, Seattle (+2)
My picks shouldn’t be influencing other people’s picks, so I feel pretty badly about this one. There are times when I make a very compelling argument, but that is in the spirit of making an argument and not necessarily based on any real information. I can make something sound good. That doesn’t mean anyone should listen. I am a little bit surprised by this outcome. I don’t think the Chiefs are THAT good, but somehow they are now in decent position to win the AFC West. Fat Andy can win those divisions, let me tell you.
The 3PT D.A. of the Week: ELI MANNING!
I’m going to be honest and say I didn’t even look at the stats closely this week. Someone might have gone 1/40 for 2 yards and 9 picks. I DON’T KNOW. But, if Eli throws 5 INTs that trumps everything. Eli really has one of the strangest careers of any players I’ve ever watched in any sport. It’s like if someone played the Masters 20 times, made the cut only twice, but won both of those times. Frickin’ Eli. What a mutt. On Sunday, he maestro’d a 22/45 to go along with those 5 INTs. I’m pretty sure the most mediocre of efforts would have beaten the Niners, because they stink, but NO. Not on this day.
The Definitive, Yet Arbitrary Top-10:
- New England, 8-2. Yeah, Indy had 0 shot.
- Green Bay, 7-3. As long as they’re at Lambeau.
- Arizona, 9-1. Would have better chance in playoffs with Mike Stanton.
- Kansas City, 7-3. High Water Mark.
- Denver, 7-3. Prolly shouldn’t lose to los Rams.
- Dallas, 7-3. Pointing toward Thanksgiving.
- Philadelphia, 7-3. Balancing on a pin.
- Detroit, 7-3. Guaranteed to win or lose ugly.
- Cincinnati, 6-3-1. Hey look, a tie.
- San Francisco, 6-4. Someone’s got to be 10.
