It’s that time of week. Time to man up and make your pick for this week’s game. Get it right, and you’ll be able to afford the American Dream: Eating all the cans of Pringles you like and getting periodic liposuction treatments to eliminate any unsightly weight gains as a result. Here we go:
Peter King: Eagles 19, Seahawks 10. “Don't ask me why I'd pick Philly to win anything after losing three out of four and totally unraveling Sunday against the Patriots and then flying to the North Pole on a short week.” Seriously, Seattle is the North Pole now? Do you even know where Seattle is?
Six of Nine ESPN Experts: Eagles. Dude, have you guys MET the Eagles? I’m not even sure these men watch football. I think they just sit around all Sunday wrestling each other on the field turf in the studio.
Yahoo! Users: Eagles. (no score)
Pete Prisco (CBS): Eagles.
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: 6-5)
The Wife: Eagles.
Me: Easiest contrarian alert ever, especially if LeSean McCoy doesn’t play tonight. If Shady’s out, that means Andy Reid will run the ball four times and let Vince Young throw seventy interceptions. Why on Earth would anyone pick this team after they experienced total organ failure a week ago? On short rest? In Seattle? No way. These are two lousy, 4-7 teams. But only one of them has gone into full shutdown mode and it ain’t the Seahawks. SEAHAWKS 27, EAGLES 16. (2011 picks: 6-5)
