UPDATE: IT HAPPENS EVERY YEAR BLACK SUNDAY. A FAVOURITE GOES DOWN AND WIPES OUT THE POOL. THE SAINTS LOSS TO THE BUCS WAS THIS YEAR'S MASSACRE. 14 Players go down including Rumpole, Colby, Rick Freedman, De La Over, Lucy Lew, Lurvey, and DOM. Better luck next year.
We went 4 of 5 last week (naturally) in our picks, and squeaked out a week one survival thanks to the last second heroics of Tony Romo and the Cowboys over the Gints.
Mad Dog Corner: Chris "Mad Dog" Russo", currently on Sirius Satellite Radio, is the finest sports talk radio host in the business. Doggy tweeted out his picks this week after going 2-1 last week:
Giants -2.5 over Falcons; Packers -3.5 over Seahawks; Eagles -5 over Cowboys."
This week we like the following teams;
The Packers -3.5 over the slumping Seahawks on the road at Green Bay.
Eagles -5 over the Desless Bryant Cowboys, and we also like under 55.
Colts -7 over the J..E..T..S Jets Jets Jets on Monday night.
Arizona -2 over the slumping Bruins in Chi Town, and under 46.5.
Ravens -6 on the road at the Oakland Alameda County Stadium over da Raiders.
Survivor Pool: BLACK SUNDAY
There are some nice picks this week, headed up by the Saints at home over the Buccaneers (Rumpole's pick), Colts over the Jets in Indy, Ravens over the Raiders in Oakland, and the Eagles over the Des-less Cowboys in Philly.
THE SAINTS LOSS WIPED OUT THE POOL. ONLY THE LUCKY SURVIVED
