News Enterprise Football Picking Contest

I won't say I was too surprised that the Giants lost to the Cowgirls, but I was pretty darned disappointed in the way they played. I think it actually will help Big Blue, since they'll be mighty peeved going into Philly Sunday night and will leave with sole possession of first place in the NFC East.

It was a wild, wacky weekend of football. The Jets need OT to beat Cleveland, a Hail Mary actually works for Jacksonville, Buffalo won a game, and McNabb gets a huge contract a week after getting benched, and then proceeds to get his butt kicked by the Beagles. Those are just some of the low-lights.

Our pickers didn't fare much better, except for Alexandra Morland, who pulled off a miraculous 12-2 record when the majority of us didn't even go .500. I won't give away her secret for picking success, mainly because I'm embarrassed by it. Justin Bazil and Sam Grant remain tied for first with mediocre 7-7 records for Week 10.

I look for a return to normalcy this week, when The New York Football Giants put a hurtin' on Philly. The Cowgirls also will get a dose of reality when the formerly lowly Lions go into Jerryworld and come away with a win. The guy who sweeps the stadium in Miami will get the start at quarterback since everybody else is hurt, but the Dolphins will beat Chicago anyway.

I'm hoping Oakland upsets the Steelers this weekend, just to humble some Pittsburgh fans, but I don't see it happening. And I'm taking Indy over the Patsies just because, well, I really just don't like the Patsies.

Please remember to get your picks in before the Thursday night game, and again I ask that you please, please send all your picks at once. My inbox gets quite confusing when I have multiple entries per person. Thanks.
