Just spoke to Quintana as he was leaving his cat box. He told me he's amped up over the Fox hiring. He feels that finally, coaches with cool animal names have broken through that glass ceiling. Now, on to this weekend's picks:
|DIVISIONAL PLAYOFFS||Random Number Generator||Jesus Quintana||TJ "The Dude" Johnson||Doug Lee|
Last week, here's how everyone did:
Doug Lee: 3-1
TJ Johnson: 1-3
Jesus Quintana: 3-1
Random Number Generator (RNG): 1-3
Given the small sample size, it's no surprise the RNG is doing so poorly. Congrats to
Bruce Doug Lee and the claw for getting 3 out of the 4 games correctly. There is no prize. There's only pride.
If you were wondering, Peter King was 2-2.
Quintana's Upset Special
Seattle over Chicago. How badly does Quintana hate Jay Cutler? Let's put it this way--when Quintana marks his territory, he does it over a rug with a picture of Cutler. Quintana sees Cutler throwing a critical pick-6 interception late in the game to send Bears fans to rooftops all over Chicago.
Quintana also likes Baltimore because of their cool logo. But picking the Ravens isn't really an upset pick.
Peter King Actually Wrote This
Now that Ted Bartlett is taking his talents to Fat Man, I may not have to ride Peter King so hard. Ted does that a lot better than I do. This week, however, King penned this gem when describing Russell Okung:
He needs two months to rest and get his ankle back up to speed, which Seattle doesn't have right now.
King meant to say the Seahawks don't have two months in which Okung could rest his ankle, but instead King said the Seahawks don't have speed. This is what happens when you have too many coneys with Roger Goodell. You get a little too creative with your modifiers.
