Wow You Guys Suck: Washington Redskins, You're playoff hopes were essentially trashed coming into last week already but you certainly threw some extra dirt on your grave by losing to the friggin Bungles. Runners Up: Cardinals defense gave up 4 touchdown passes to Tavaris Jackson, Oakland's defense let the Pats score on their first 5 possessions.
This Scarecrow Needs a Brain: Dick Jauron, The Jets needed a gift and I was about one more first down away from turning it off and kicking a hole in the wall, but alas Dick Jauron and JP 'Loss'man were there for me. And now the Jets have two more weeks to break my spirit. Runners Up: the Refs that decided it was indisputable that Santonio scored the touchdown, Jeff Fisher opting to throw a bomb No-Hands McCareins rather than kick a 49 yard field goal.
Cough Cough Cough: The HERMINATORS, The HERMINATORS had an 18 point lead and the chance to knock the Chargers out of the playoffs. But then their offense opted to not score anymore and their defense opted to give up just enough points to lose. Runners Up: JP 'Loss'man let the ball and the game slip threw his fingers, the Saints D let their playoff hopes go out the window by giving up back to back drives to Kyle Orton.
The Shocker: Houston Texans, I know I picked this game last week but I started convincing myself towards the weekend that the Texans had a shot to take home a victory. (Mostly when I wrote the Manning Bowl post and thought the Colts still had a shot at the division, they don't). But it's still the most shocking outcome of the weekend. Runners Up: the Redskins are lifeless, the pounding Minnesota gave Arizona on the road.
The Pimp: Andre Johnson, If this guy had a quarterback for his entire career he might just be thought of as a potential hall of famer, that's how good he is. But he was stuck with David Carr for too many years and is relegated to putting up 209 yards on a top ranked defense without much media adulation. Runners Up: the Cowboys pass rush tortured the G-Men all night long, Philip Rivers two touchdowns in just over a minute is pretty pimp.
You Got Jakked Up: Eli Manning, Eli was getting pummeled on just about every play as his line decided that they didn't want to block to many blitzers on sunday night.
My Fantasy Anti-MVP: Hope is Gone, I'm out of the postseason so it's all meaningless.
New York Jets MVP: Abram Elam, he can't cover anyone but he made a huge game and potential season saving play.
My Picks: 9-7
Preseason Picks: 13-3
Picks Vs. Spread: 6-9
Pick Suggestions: 1-4
Hey, I was great at picking week 15 games in September... not so much in December.
