The Weak Ender

Sophia Bush wants you all to know that she never dated Tony Romo. Because she doesn't date losers. Or maybe because she didn't enough bang for the buck for enduring a night on the town with him. And she never got a free trip to Mexico, either.

Cowboys fans must be longing for the day when everybody just thought their quarterback was gay.

Romo has some moxie to try to pull off something like this. Kind of reminds you of something Joe Namath would have done -- before he reduced himself to chasing sideline reporters. But Namath also would have won the game.

Here's a quick look at the weekend in the NFL.

Seattle at Green Bay
Pity the poor Seahawks, one of the most consistent teams in the NFC and only two years removed from the Super Bowl. And yet, nobody seems to give them any respect. Everybody gushed about Sean Taylor last week and now it's Brett Favre mania this week. Favre even mentioned that he was leaning towards coming back to Green Bay for one more season. Now, that might look like Favre playing the attention-seeker again. But he smartly floated that story out there to take the pressure off of his young teammates. Unlike taking some starlet to Havana, Favre was actually thinking about his team when he did that. Picking the Packers is tempting, but it's Favre in a big game. Both defenses are underrated, but lean towards the Seahawks. Besides, the Packers fans are likely upset that something nice was said about Favre, so this should make us even.

Jacksonville at New England
Sorry, the Jaguars have no chance in this game. Don't even bother watching. Jacksonville doesn't play good enough pass defense to win this game. Sorry.

New York Giants at Dallas

This game comes down to Terrell Owens. And if a broken leg can't stop him, he's playing with that sprain. Will he play effectively? Well, that's another story. Has anybody else noticed that Wade Phillips is really under the gun here to win this game? Jerry Jones really fears losing offensive coordinator Jason Garrett who is likely to be courted by other teams. Losing to the Giants would give Jones the chance to fire Phillips and promote Garrett? But that seems too far fetched, just ask Marty Schottenheimer. Don't worry, the Cowboys will win.

San Diego at Indianapolis

Why do people continue to ignore the recent history that shows that the Chargers 3-4 defense always gives Gomer trouble? The Chargers have won consecutive games against the Colts and even being indoors doesn't seem to be that change the situation all that much. San Diego ended the Colts bid for a perfect season indoors at the RCA Dome. Another plus for the Chargers is the return of Marvin Harrison. That means, there is one less player on the field who actually wants to participate in a playoff game. Harrison might have been a bigger choker than Gomer and Tony Dungy. So when look for the winner, take the Colts. To not, would be to ignore history that Norv Turner blows.

This week's picks? One word: chalk.

The Gmen have the best chance to pull the upset, what with Romo thumbing Jessica Simpson and TO's high ankle sprain- not to mention Wade Phillips' playoff record. But do you really want this month's mortgage payment riding on Eli Manning? Me neither.

Chris said...

No way all the favorites win. Your boy Eli will take the GMen on another wild ride of pleasure.

Problem #1:
Jax + 13.5 = X

Solve for X.

Anybody remember the last time the Pats covered against a team that didn't have a motherf'ing fish wearing a football helmet as their emblem? Me neither.
X= free money.

Overheard in Cabo this weekend: "Daddy, what's Mexican for 'limp'?"

NFL Adam said...

We're not worthy.

Valid point on the Patriots. They should win. But they haven't covered a in while. In fact, that 21-point win over Miami, they still failed to cover, right?

Bain said...

X= free money.

Absolutely concur.

Diane said...

Fingers crossed for a Giants vs. Colts Super Bowl so that we can enjoy two solid weeks of nothing but interviews with Archie and Mrs. Manning.

I wish Tony could do to me what Brett just did to the Seahawks.

I'm hammered, and I don't care who knows it.

Packers! Woo!

The rest of the NFL can go fuck itself.

In the words of the late, great Tupac Shakur: "My lyrics are blueprints to money makin'". Actually, my picks ARE blueprints to money making whereas Tupac's lyrics were more blueprints to getting ventilated by one of Biggie Smalls' Oompah-Loompahs. Speaking of that whole East Coast v. West Coast thing, nice trade- Tupac for Biggie. It's like if England had killed Bob Dylan and we retaliated by shooting the guy from Chumbawumba. Seriously, didn't anybody know the way to Method Man's house?
