    It’s that time of week. Time to man up and make your pick for this week’s game. Get it right, David Stern will end up vetoing your winnings anyway, because David Stern is hilariously corrupt. Here we go:

    Peter King: Dolphins 24, Eagles 21. "The Eagles will play a feisty game." Whoa hey slow down there, buddy. We all know the Dolphins claimed the title of Feisty Bad Team a month ago.

    Eight of 10 ESPN Experts: Dolphins. Even Jaws picked against the Eagles this week. HE'S GOT TO SELL MATT MOORE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

    Yahoo! Users: Dolphins. (no score)

    Mike Silver: Eagles. (no score)

    Pete Prisco (CBS): Dolphins.

    AJ Daulerio: Eagles.

    Index Card I Threw Up In The Air With The Name Of Each Team On Either Side, Seeing Which Team Would Land Face Up: Eagles. (Card Record: 6-6)

    The Wife: Dolphins.

    Me: I'll say this for Mike Vick: He isn't the type of fellow to go tanking at the end of a lost season. In many ways, he echoes Allen Iverson: a controversial figure in Philly who dominates the ball, but whose effort during games is never in question. Vick will have to do most of the heavy lifting this game, because the rest of this team is shot. DeSean Jackson has shut it down. The run defense has shut it down. I'm not even sure Andy Reid has been awake for the past month. He may be in some kind of giant meat coma, for all I know. This is a team that needs the end of the season to arrive NOW, this very moment. I'm sure the surging Dolphins will be more than happy to help push them closer to the end. More turnovers for everyone! DOLPHINS 34, EAGLES 25. (2011 picks: 7-5)
