The 94WIP Suicide Pool is down to just 56 survivors with four weeks to go. If your pulse is still beating, odds are you don’t need any help from me, but here I am nonetheless.
Death has turned me cold. I’m like Frankie Carbone frozen in the back of the meat truck when it comes to my postmortem NFL picks. I’ve gone 0-2 (3-3 overall) since being knocked out of the Suicide Pool in week 10.
Back in week 7, I wrote about the lack of teams you can trust with your life in the Suicide Pool, and that trend hasn’t changed. There are 15 teams that are currently 4-6 or worse, and another four stuck at .500.
94WIP’s Anthony Gargano and Glen Macnow spend the afternoon on Friday at Lincoln Financial Field, trying to bring good luck to the Eagles.
All week I was preparing for Carson Palmer to kill me. I had my Carson Palmer armor ready to go Sunday morning, and was fully protected to face the wrath of the roadblock game that was thrown in the middle of the road.
If I had to make a list of NFL players and coaches never to bet on, Carson Palmer and Wade Phillips would easily crack the top five.
Though Charles Barkley and Michael Vick played different sports, with different degrees of success in Philadelphia, they will both go down in Philadelphia sports history together in one particular category: lightning rods.
There have only been five teams in the league you can count on for survival. And I mean really count on. They rarely make you sweat, and when they do it’s only a temporary perspiration until they regain control of the game. These teams are the Broncos, Chiefs, Patriots, Seahawks and Saints.
94WIP Afternoon host Glen Macnow took over the stations Twitter account for the Eagles game on Sunday at Tampa Bay against the Bucs.
While Chip Kelly says Michael Vick is day to day, and Vick says his condition is improving, it still seems unlikely he will start on Sunday against the Bucs. With a capable backup in Nick Foles, and the ability to run a necessity, giving his strained hamstring another week to heal would be the most likely option.
For five weeks I’ve been walking on eggshells around the NFL schedule trying to avoid the landmine game that would blow me out of the 94WIP Suicide Pool.
Billy Wagner did not have a good relationship with Phillies fans, and that’s putting it lightly.
This moment was coming. It was only a matter of time. Some might have hoped it wouldn’t arrive as early as week 4, but it’s here. The Philadelphia Eagles are on the wrong side of the largest spread of the weekend, and (spoiler alert) my Best Bet for Survival pick.
Still watching every game, Charlie Manuel talks about the current state of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Week 2 was a battle for most of us trying to survive.
