Junior Seau Gets TV Show, World Wonders Why

While driving into the city the other day, I noticed a billboard for a brand new sports-reality show called ‘Sports Jobs With Junior Seau’.

Sigh. I wish TV didn’t suck.

NFL Week 11 Power Rankings

Yup, that's the last time I ever Google image search the word "weird".

Breaking News from the Onion Sports Network

I can't wait for the show. From The Onion Sports Network:

Eagles Settle For Field Goal After 260-Yard Drive
"SAN DIEGO—The Eagles were forced to settle for a field goal against the Chargers Sunday after sustaining a 260-yard, 64-play drive that featured six separate red-zone appearances and took 52 minutes off the game clock. "It's disappointing not to score a touchdown when you keep a drive alive for more than three and a half quarters," said quarterback Donovan McNabb, who completed 32 of his 66 passes, converted 26 first downs, and was carted off the field for X-rays twice during the drive. "At least we came away with three points. Those 120 yards in penalties really hurt our field position, but those conversions on third and 21, third and 64, and the fake punt on fourth and 72 showed that this team never quits." Backup QB Michael Vick took one snap from center during the nearly hour-long drive, failing to complete a screen pass."

Links for Friday

A year ago at this time we were still talking about this. Our quarterback, forever brilliant, didn't realize that games can end in ties.

Dolla Dolla Bills Yall - Week 11

Well, last week didn't work out too well.  The Shark's picks went 6-8-1 for Week 10.  It was only the second losing week of the year.  The good news is that Shark picks are still well in the green overall.  If you followed our picks last week... well... sorry, it happens. 

Just go ahead and put that behind you, get back in the saddle and double down on this weeks' picks.  That's what any good gambler would do.

Week 11 spread picks coming up after the jump!

Hey! Another Flyers Post!

Welcome to the second installment of Flyers coverage from the ever-articulate guest writer Rich.

The Fly Guys are good, right? They score a lot and don’t allow a lot of goals, with 59 goals for and 41 goals against in 16 games. They are winning games this month, 6 of last 8 with a home record of 8-3-1.

Q: So why are they only in the middle of the division?
