Week #9 AdultFYI Football Pool: Eagles Suck Eggs; Then, Again, There’s The Giants….

They looked like crap and lost to Oakland. They looked like crap and beat the Redskins. Last week the Eagles didn’t look like crap, but this week they’re back to being crap. Count Philadelphia as one of the erratic teams that are making mincemeat out of this NFL season- if you’re trying to pick winners and losers, that is. And how about them Giants?

I know I should have listened to Billy the Crystal this week instead of going with gut instinct. The Crystal fashioned a 10-2 record as the best performance in the AdultFYI football pool. Jeff Mullen and Brian Wallace were runners-up going 9-3. Tonight the Steelers meet Denver.
