Yesterday was a roller coaster of emotions in my tackle football viewing. I
never expected the Eagles to actually throw the game last night, but there it
is. Maybe the NFL should consider a draft lottery like the NBA to help
discourage tanking. Anyway, the Giants were 6-10 on the season, so they didn't
really deserve to be in the playoffs. If you are a fan of one of the
teams that made the playoffs, congratulations, and good luck. Moving on,
congrats also to our Pigskin Pick'em winners: trilobite820 won the straight pick
pool, and espn17722565 took top honors in the spread pool (if not the nickname
pool). I was in the middle of the pack in the non-spread pool and dead last in
the spread pool, so I obviously need to fire my scouting staff.
