Here are some of the stories that I have found interesting over the past week or so. My Playoff picks for today will follow after the 6 links.
Charles Barkley was headed for a "booty call" when he got arrested. I'd run a stop sign for one of those.
An ex-Redskin wrote an article about how some NFL players don't want to make the playoffs.
Here's a link to the glory days, with lots of info about the Redskin's 25th Anniversary of Super Bowl XVII.
And finally, its the "countdown" time of year, here's one from Shutdown Corner, and one that I wrote.
Now, my picks for today. I must confess that this has been my worst season by far, for picking NFL games. I was 0-2 yesterday, so I need to get these 2 right, just to get to .500.
Baltimore 20 Miami 17
Defense wins Championships. The Ravens aren't going to win the Super Bowl, but they win here.
Eagles 27 Vikings 13
Tarvaris Jackson has played well since returning from injury. I expect Jim Johnson to blitz him early and often, and Jackson to play poorly today.
