It’s that time of week. Time to man up and make your pick for Sunday’s game. Get it right, and you’ll give yourself the nickname Ace Weinberg: Handicapping King. Then you’ll buy 30 minutes of airtime on a local radio station every Sunday morning and demand people call your special 1-800 number for your LOCK OF THE SEASON. It’s a one-time offer, and it’s absolutely FREE! Don’t miss out on Ace Weinberg’s expertise! He was 100 percent in picking Cowboys/Seahawks just one week ago! Get it wrong, and you don’t get any show/infomercial like that, which is probably for the best. Here are our picks, plus picks from across the rest of the media.
Scott Crisp: Cowboys 31, Seahawks 10
Josh Alper: Cowboys 30, Seahawks 17
Bill Simmons: Not in yet.
Peter King: Cowboys 30, Seahawks 20. “We don't talk or react strongly enough when great players like Walter Jones go on IR and appear to be finished. Big Walt's a very big loss.” Allow me to react strongly on behalf of Seattle fans, Peter. GAHHHHHHHH THERE IS NO GOD!!!!! WILL THERE EVER BE A RAINBOW?
95% Of SI Users: Cowboys.
Michael Silver: Cowboys.
94% Of Yahoo! Users: Cowboys.
Pete Prisco (CBS): Cowboys.
Andy (Cowboys fan I know): Cowboys 56, Seahawks 0. (“Has anyone seen Shaun Alexander lately? I bet he weighs 400 lbs. by now.”)
Index Card I Threw Up In The Air With The Name Of Each Team On Either Side, Seeing Which Team Would Land Face Up: Seahawks. Oooooh…
The Wife: Seahawks. “I’d love to check out Seattle sometime. Good seafood.”
Me: I said here last week that the Cowboys would have their best performance of the year against Atlanta, and then ruin it all by losing to Seattle. But I don’t have the nerve to go through with the second half of that prediction. Seattle can’t run the ball, and the weakness of that left side of the line against Ware and company doesn’t bode well. The Cowboys are heating up. Cowboys 34, Seahawks 13.
