2010 NFL Week 8 Picks

Posted: Updated:

It's the BYE week edition, and frankly, not a moment too soon.

It seems like every year I write a post about how everyone on the team is on "no Madden/Gameboy/World of Warcraft" punishment because Eagles always seem to slump before the bye.

So am I crazy? Over-reacting? Guilty of false memory syndrome?

Um, no.

Andy loses games
the week before the bye. He's at .500. Which wouldn't be so odd if it weren't for the fact that he's .620 overall in his coaching career with the Eagles. He really does lose disproportionately prior to the bye, no matter when it lands.

On the other hand, the week AFTER the bye? Big Red is perfect, which will really be put to the test this year, with the Colts on tap and possibly no DeSean Jackson. Get healthy, guys.

Anyway, on to the picks at Snarkin' the NFL.
