NFL Picks Week 3 Recap (And A Tangent)

So with the Washington loss last night and me giving the 'kiss of death' to the Redskins by picking them to win, I have fallen yet ANOTHER game behind Ryan in our picks competition. It wasn't a particularly good week for either of us, with Ryan going 10-6 while I went 9-7, which puts him ahead at 34-14 while I 'improved' to 31-17.  So not great...  

HOWEVER....

Watching the Redskins lose was a very positive experience - and the biggest reason for that is that I love to listen to Dan-Jazeera Radio ESPN 980's so-called "Monday Morning Quarterback Show" starring Andy Pollin and that 'lovable' Redskin homer, Kevin Sheehan.  Whenever the Skins win, Sheehan is utterly insufferable.  He acts as if it was a breakthrough and they are one step closer to winning the Super Bowl.  Andy usually operates as the voice of reason; when he becomes like Sheehan, though, the whole show just suffers.  

This morning was particularly bad because they refused to take any Cowboy fans as callers. While it is their show and they can do what they want, it is a wimp move.  You can't spend an entire week building up the so-called "Dallas Week" (which Cowboy fans just don't care about, by the way) and then take your ball and run away because your team couldn't hold on a 3rd and 21.  Grow a pair - and I am talking especially to you, Andy Pollin - because I expected better from you there.
