Excerpt: "Last week, the “mild” concussion to RG3 prevented me from taking a “major” lead over MDS in the picks contest.
Robert Griffin III exited, the Redskins lost, and what would have been a two-game win for the week turned into a push, with both of us going 10-4.
This week, Robert Griffin III is back, and his team’s game against the Vikings once again will decide whether someone gets a two-game swing, or whether we tie once again.
For the year, there’s still no tie. I’m leading the way at 49-28, and MDS is 47-30.
Giants at 49ers
MDS’s take: Tom Coughlin says no one is giving his team a chance in this game. I wouldn’t go quite so far as to say the Giants don’t have a chance, but I would say the way the 49ers have played the last couple weeks, on both sides of the ball, I have a hard time seeing the Giants’ path to a win.
MDS’s pick: 49ers 31, Giants 17.
Florio’s take: This is precisely the kind of game the Giants ordinarily win. And if they hadn’t won in San Francisco in January en route to a Super Bowl victory, the Giants would win. No amount of Rodney Dangerfield cliches from coach Tom Coughlin will overcome the fact that the 49ers are hungrier and, for now, better. There’s a chance it will get ugly.
Florio’s pick: 49ers 31, Giants 24." Read more...
