MNF Pick, Week XIII

This week is a pretty even matchup, Carolina Panthers at Philadelphia Eagles. Based solely on records, I should bet Carolina, especially with the Eagles having lost Donovan McNabb for the season. But I'm going to go with Philadelphia to cover the three point spread.

One reason is that Philly is at home. If they can get the crowd into the game with some early plays, I think Delhomme will have a tough time of it. Jake throws his share of interceptions, and turnovers are always key in a close matchup.

The loss of Donovan McNabb hurts the Eagles, but Jeff Garcia isn't the worst backup QB in the world. He's actually rated higher than Delhomme at this point in the season. I'm not terribly confident about my pick, and most experts are going with Carolina, but there you have it.

Sorry, like the rest of America, I was doing something else. I was watching Babyface where Barbara Stanwyck screws her way to the top in the pre-hayes era on TCM. Now I know how she got all that land, and why the kids all looked so different.

Speaking of looking different. When the wolves got ahold of that Kim fellow who wandered off into the snow leaving his wife and kids in the car. Do you think he tasted like Bulgogi?

allow me to point out that my analysis was spot fucking on! the key play ---> Delhomme throws an interception while in the red zone to lose the game.
