The Jesus, The Generator and the Experts - Week 10

This week we saw both the Country Music and the Latin Grammy Awards.

If only we could only give Peter King an award for word count.

As we usually do, we ask our random number generator (RNG) to makes its picks for the week’s NFL games.  We then compare these picks to the so-called experts.  To make things even more lively, I include my cat, Jesus Quintana, in on the picks, along with Doug Lee and myself (Doc Bear is too smart for this).  The RNG is simply armed with the notion that 57% of the time, the home team is a winner in the NFL.  Quintana picks between two quarters as I drop them to the floor.  Doug Lee uses his Deep-Blue mind.

I use Kahlua and a proprietary mathematical formula. If that doesn’t work, I listen to Darrius Rucker and watch telenovelas until the picks come.

We've also decided to do a weekly total, so if you want to get in on this action, just put your picks in the comments below.  We'll score you each week, too.  And yeah, I'll give you the Atlanta-Baltimore game.

So how has the RNG done this week?

EXPERT Wins   Total   Percentage   EXPERT Wins   Total   Percentage  
Jason Cole 84 130 64.62% Mike Golic 77 130 59.23%
Mark Schlereth 83 130 63.85% Michael Silver 77 130 59.23%
Chris Mortensen 83 130 63.85% Pete Prisco 73 130 56.15%
Ron Jaworski 75 120 62.50% Merril Hoge 72 130 55.38%
Accuscore 81 130 62.31% RNG 71 130 54.62%
Yahoo Users 80 130 61.54% Doug Lee 71 130 54.62%
TJ "The Dude" Johnson 79 130 60.77% Adam Schefter 70 130 53.85%
Les Carpenter 79 130 60.77% Eric Allen 64 130 49.23%
ESPN Pigskin Pick 'Em 78 130 60.00% Jesus Quintana 56 130 43.08%
Peter King 77 130 59.23% Raiders Fans 5 130 3.85%

The RNG continues its averageness, as you would expect; Doug Lee made up some ground this week with 9 points; I stayed two points ahead of Peter King;  Quintana continues to suck tailpipe.

Soon I will accuse Jason Cole of cheating.  If you can't beat them, accuse them of nefarious behavior.

Now, on to this week's picks:

WEEK 9   Random Number Generator   Jesus Quintana   TJ "The Dude" Johnson   Doug Lee  
VISTOR HOME Pick Pick Team Team

PHI WAS WAS PHI PHI PHI

Yes, yes, I know.  I didn't take the Broncos and Doug Lee did.  Doug bleeds orange and blue; I just want to bleed Peter King.

Quintana's Upset Specials

As we always do, we caution you to do the exact opposite of Quintana.  He cleans his privates with his tongue for Tebow's sake.

1) Denver over Kansas City.  What can I say?  The cat has a soft spot for the Broncos.  Also, he's convinced that KC is gassed from their emotional game against the Raiders.

2) Dallas over the Giants.  The rumors of Mike Shanahan to the Cowboys are true, says Quintana.  He also thinks you should pencil in Troy Aikman for 300 yards.

3) Cleveland over the Jets.  This really shouldn't be in the category of an upset, but Quintana really wants you to know he thinks Peyton Hillis is the MVP.

Peter King Actually Wrote This:

"Got your Stat of the Week for you,'' Sal Paolantonio told me on Sirius NFL Radio the other day. "Donovan McNabb's 1-0 after being benched.'' Make that 1-1 by Monday night, Salvator. 

Right, PK.  That's your stat of the week with a little Salvator humor thrown in for good measure.  That's the weakest stat of the week I've ever seen.  What will you tell us next?  The Broncos are 2-0 in Super Bowls after going 0-4? 

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
