Squealers!
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Tough pick, though...feels like it could go either way. My head says Pansies, my gut says Iggles.

But I can't has 2 picks so...imma go with the Pansies to lose.

Of course Eli could go all Forrest Gump again and somehow embarrass the Broncos, that'll really show me.

I was thinking of making a pick on this game but it felt too iffy either way. If I had picked I would have picked the Eagles to lose simply because they are the away team.

Yeah, after having picked the Pansies two weeks in a row and getting fucked, I couldn't pick them again to lose. But I didn't feel good enough about them to pick the Iggles either. And maybe it's stupid of me, but now that I have no mulligan, I hate to pick Thursday night games unless they're almost a lock. The Squealers looked like the next best pick.

I'm hedging that pick as there are several other players with that team already and I suspect McAdoo may have an embarrassing loss in Denver. Perhaps get his own flight back home. Considering how many picks on average, in any given NFL "Sorry to make you cry" season, one gets wrong anyway., a low risk bet seems like a good wager.
