NFC East Week 8 Picks

Matt Moore, everybody.

Dolphins @ Giants – OK, the pick is obviously the Giants, because the Dolphins are clearly a very bad football team with a coach that’s basically trying to get fired at this point.  They aren’t, however, “Rams bad.”  Let’s look at some of the Dolphins’ games this season:

Week 1 – OK, so Tom Brady torched them for 517 yards, but the Fins were down by 4 late in the 3rd Q in this one.

Week 2 – The Dolphins hung in there against the Texans as well.  Down 3 in the 4th.

Week 3 – The Fins kicked a FG to go up 6 with 3:23 to go in Cleveland.  Then the Browns drove down and scored with :43 to go.

Week 4 – Down 7 in the 4th in San Diego.

Week 6 – Loss to Jets wasn’t really that close, but the Jets couldn’t move the ball on the Dolphins’ D at all for 4 quarters.

Week 7 – Well, you know… Tebow.

Anyway, the point here is… The Dolphins have at least been in every game, and they’re eventually going to win a few.  And let’s not forget… Seattle.  This is no gimme.

Redskins @ Bills – Not that I would have picked the Skins anyway, but they’re just way too banged up to match the Bills’ offense, led by the great Fred Jackson.  Soooooo… Bills.

This isn’t exactly analysis, but can I make a fairly obvious observation here?  The two best players on each offense are named Fred.  When’s the last time that has happened?

In fact, Fred Davis is really the only true offensive threat the Redskins have. Of the healthy Redskins’ skill position players, Fred Davis leads the team with 423 yards from scrimmage.  Take Davis out of the equation, and here are the remaining healthy skill position players:

Player Yards from scrimmage TD
Jabar Gaffney 361 1
Roy Helu 203 0
Ryan Torain 152 1
Terrence Austin 58 0
Logan Paulsen 48 0
Anthony Armstrong 47 1
Donte Stallworth 46 0
Niles Paul 25 0
Darrell Young 11 0
Mike Sellers 0 0
Brandon Banks 0 0
Leonard Hankerson 0 0
Total 951 3

And Fred Jackson:

Player Yards from Scrimmage TD
Fred Jackson 880 6

OK, so that’s not really analysis either, but you know… Bills.

Cowboys @ Eagles – Oof… (Deep breath)… Forgive me. Cowboys.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    if the cowboys win that’s game-set-match for the Eagles season….

    Honestly t hough. if the eagles win, i predict them to take the division. Giants haven’t looked good at all and have been gifted wins all season against poor teams. That won’t happen with their 2nd half schedule.

  17. brisulph says:

    Did you pick the Giants or not? You stated it as such, but then made the case for the Dolphins…

  18. Jason-E says:

    Jimmy, if we win this game, then you seriously need to pick against the birds every week from here on out.

    Frankly, I think this is the year Reid’s post-bye week record ends.

    1. giants fan says:

      Agreed, I think the offenses are comparable and I like Dallas’ defense more. Dallas scares me more than any team in this division, atm.

    JJ just cried

  20. Immynimmy says:

    Jimmy, you jerk!

  21. Gary says:

    When Tebow strikes your team down like that, you don’t recover. No way the ‘Phins win.

  22. PE says:

    GASP! Unforgiven! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xgrl9S6HtK8

    But seriously, Jimmy, you should have made the Cowboys-Eagles pick as your “lock” of the week! 🙂

    1. Done. Lock of the year!

  23. The Legend says:

    That stings Jimmy that stings

  24. DerfDiggy says:

    Reverse Jimmy Jinx…Cowboys are doomed:(

    1. AtlEagle says:

      How sad is it that when I saw the headline I thought ” Jimmy better pick against us this week” . I even thought it with emotion and expletives. Long live the curse!
