Congrats go out to Jeff Mester, aka El Jeffe who won this very competitive week. A tsk-tsk goes out to Matty Rozen for his not-so-great performance. On the other hand, it was Brett Favre-ian, at least for this week. I think Jeff is a Giants fan, and regardless there needs to be some love for what Tiki Barber has been doing this year. I have to admit, I still sometimes fall prey to thinking of him as a small back, but the kid PLAYS. Big time.
I think last night might have been THE most suprising score of the season. As Chris Berman (who bounces between being great and insanely annoying) would say, "That's WHY they play the games!"
Another comment on NFL Primetime (which I still can't believe is slated to move to Mondays next year) was by Tom Jackson who said he was proud of the ethics and integrity of the league. What he meant was the way "bad" teams like Cleveland, San Francisco and Houston played even though they are well out of any playoff contention. While I get what TJ means, it seems lately that people who boast about integrity are either failed reality TV contestants, or the least ethical people out there. (I'm not naming names, but a certain party ran based on integrity and is now being called the Culture of Corruption. I'm just sayin...)
Two more weeks to the playoffs, and Judge Ito has himself only a one-point lead. Team T and others can SMELL first place...keep it up.
Remember, most of the games are on Saturday this week, so get those picks in beforehand.
