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 all those outdoor Christmas decorations you wanted from Home Depot: the inflatable snow globe, the reindeer made of Christmas light wires, the plastic Santa, the styrofoam Nativity scene, the eight-foot-tall statue of the Abominable snow monster of the North, the cannons, the life-sized gingerbread tool shed, the crate of live dwarfs dressed as elves. All of it can be YOURS if you’re bold enough to put a little action on this puppy! Here we go:
Ten of Ten ESPN Experts: Cowboys. Daring as ever.
Michael Silver: Cowboys.
90% Of Yahoo! Users: Cowboys.
Pete Prisco (CBS): Cowboys.
Andy (Cowboys fan I know): Cowboys 38, Redskins 10. (“Very excited for Jerry to sign Albert Haynesworth this spring. No excuse me while I go kill myself.”)
Index Card I Threw Up In The Air With The Name Of Each Team On Either Side, Seeing Which Team Would Land Face Up: Redskins (Index Card record: 8-5)
The Wife: Redskins.
Me: REX GROSSMAN! REX GROSSMAN! REX GROSSMAN! WOOOHOOOO! Watching Rex Grossman throw interceptions is a real treat. He doesn’t throw them like normal lousy QBs. No, no. No, he aggressively goes after that interception. He throws it to that DB on a freakin’ ROPE. Anyway, the Skins are dead in the water, but I will say this: If Dallas loses this game, suddenly Jason Garrett’s stranglehold on this job becomes a bit of an illusion, doesn’t it? COWBOYS 45, REDSKINS 19.
