tell you this to simply let you know Victoria Principal and I had a
passionate affair? No, I tell you this because the NFL is full of sad
partings, and tough decisions. I somehow think that Cleveland’s parting
was not so sad, and; in the end, not so tough.
parting with Green Bay hurt, but in the long run, Green Bay will be better off; it just didn’t work out that way Monday Night.
The Saints and Vikings are the class of the conference right now. I may believe in the Giants when they beat a tough team.

BetBot Picks of the Week That Nobody Else Likes
I get e-mail all the time telling me how terrible my picks are. Last
week I went 1-2 to put me at 5-4 on the year.
Washington +3.5 over CAROLINA – I know Washington isn’t lighting anyone up, but the Panthers rot.
Jake Delhomme laying points? Do not go there.
DENVER +3 over New England – I just like home dogs. And since we’re done with that,
Ashton Kutcher is a real tool in those camera commercials.
Indianapolis -3.5 over TENNESSEE – Seen anything to suggest the Colts
won’t run up the score on the Titans shoddy pass defense? Me neither.
So long for now, and remember “Showgirls and gin my friends, showgirls and …BZT…gin.”
