The Best Weekend in Football
At least that's how Berman describes it. I disagree: to me the best weekend in football is the one that includes the Rose Bowl. But I digress. The divisional championship is cool. Last weekend I was doing pretty good, picking three out of four winners. The Redskins were the only team to let me down. Here's how I see the rest of the season. I know, I know, you'll think I'm crazy:
Greeb Bay beats the Seahawks
Chargers beat the Colts
Jacksonville beats the Patriots
Cowboys beat the Giants
Cowboys beat Green bay
Chargers beat Jacksonville
Chargers beat the Cowboys to win the Superbowl.
Of course the smart money is on New England. And my ideal would be to have the Giants absolutely crush the Pats in the big game. But I've been picking the Chargers at the beginning of the season for the last five years or so. Sooner or later....
Why do I pick Jacksonville? Because the Pats will overlook Jacksonville, that's why. No, really. I think the Pats are beatable, Jacksonville is scrappy, and the Chargers have finally achieved the form we all expected them to have this year. I really think they can beat anybody right now. And th Pats have been pushed to the wall by too many teams down the stretch. At some point they will fold.
