Football Picking Contest

Oh, what fun it is to enjoy a relaxing Sunday watching The New York Football Giants put a major beat-down on the Deadskins. I must admit, I have a hard time watching the other Manning look mortal, throwing all those picks. Very un-Manning-like.

Not a lot of movement at the top of our picking pack, with most of the leaders posting 11-5 records. Deborah Aldous joins the frey with a week-leading 14-2 record. Good thing I had the correct pick sheet online on time this week, or she may have had trouble. Patrick Allen, Kit LaBombard and Troy Galusha also posted 14-2 records for Week 13.

A couple quick things about Week 13. Big Ben is one tough SOB; Rex Ryan ought to tone it down a tad; the Bengals' left tackle has to be the stupidest player in the league; and Big Ben is one tough SOB.

Many of you may want to clip this column out, because you're about to read something you very likely never have, nor ever will again: For Week 14, I'm a Dallas Cowboys' fan! Yes, you read that right - I'll be pulling for that team from Texas to beat the Beagles Sunday night.

I feel so....dirty.

Big Blue is tied at the top of the NFC East with Philly, but Philly holds the tie-breaker because they won the first match. The Giants will end Brett Favre's career Sunday, and if Dallas pulls out the win, The New York Football Giants will lead the division going into the big showdown with the Beagles in the swamps of Jersey Dec. 19.

Good stuff. The NFL got the scheduling right this year, with a lot of meaningful division games late this season.
