New Picking System, Week 2: the Return of 12 of 13 (I hope)
Andy Reid is in his 12th season as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. So far, he's 11-0 the week after the bye, including 2005, aka The Rearranging Deck Chairs on the Hindenberg season.
Mike Vick will be back under center, hopefully sporting some sort of super special Under Armor that can repel knives, bullets, and Dwight Freeney.
DeSean Jackson is likely to return to the lineup, hopefully sporting a helmet made of magic clouds that will prevent him from becoming 2010's Brian Westbrook.
Then again, Big Red is also 0-3 against the Colts. And McNabb's Redskins lost the Colts (that just feels relevant to me, but I'm not sure why).
Basically all the analysts (other than Jaws, who, let's face it, is biased) are picking the Colts. Who have this guy - you might've heard of him? - Peyton Manning? Rumor is, he's pretty good. He's currently the #4 ranked QB in the league. And he's throwing to the #5 receiver, Reggie Wayne. They also have some pretty good guys on the other side of the ball, defensive end Robert Mathis and the aforementioned Dwight Freeney.
None of these facts is in dispute.
So what does The System say? Eagles, baby! Seriously. It does. And I'm picking the Eagles. God have mercy on my soul. And my system.
Get the rest at Snarkin' the NFL.
